It is that time again.
The 2014 year for Hot Wheels is two months away from coming to a close, and 2015 is waiting in the wings. Only two more 2014 batches remain. And with that it means 2015 models will start appearing.
2014 has been stellar for nostalgic Japanese, culminating with the Datsun 510 Wagon Super Treasure Hunt in the final batch of the year. But we are happy that we already have early evidence that 2015 will be a great year as well. We have heard rumors that many of the 2014 Japanese hits will return in 2015, and it starts with the first images of the Datsun 620 Pickup.
The 620 made a stellar debut in 2014 with three colors, all in Datsun Li'l Hustler-inspired livery. The Kmart exclusive in blue being our favorite. But it does not lose any luster in 2015, with an era-inspired deco in green, orange and yellow. Sporty enough, and nostalgic enough. Nicely done.
So when will see this? We assume early fall, and maybe even as one of the early releases in the Kday cases in September. But whenever it is, we at least know it is coming. We think most of you will be picking up one or ten.
What do you think?
