Goodbye 2014. It's been fun.
In Hot Wheels terms, 2015 is here. Even though we haven't seen a full roll-out yet of 2014 Batch Q, Mattel has already gotten 2015 started. And it started today at Wheel Collectors as their first 2015 cases arrived.
And the models are now up at the following link:
Hot Wheels 2015 Batch A
This is a very nice start to the new year. There are two new models that definitely have our interest (Lotus Esprit, Dodge Charger 500), a fantastic Super TH (Kool Kombi), and a couple of very nice Japanese cars (Mad Manga and the Datsun 620). We have shown some of them here at Lamley, but not all. We look forward to doing that soon.
One other only because we have gotten a lot of questions from readers: Yes, the Datsun 510 Wagon is also in the A cases. Obviously not the Super, but the mainline version is. That should help anyone who wants one have a chance to find a couple.
What do you guys think? A good start to 2015?
