2014 Lamley Awards: What was the 2014 Hot Wheels Model of the Year?
The Lamley Awards voting continues with the vote for 2014 Hot Wheels Model of the Year.
What do we mean by Model of the Year? Well, to be honest, it is the most subjective of any of the Lamley Awards categories. It could mean Best, it could mean Most Popular, it could mean Most Hype, Most Buzz, Best Looking, whatever. Maybe you could call the Model of the Year "The Most Significant".
This is also the only category where we at Lamley pick nominees. With the help of some "in-the-know" collectors (HWC's doomus being one of them), we selected the 15 models that seemed to generate the most discussion. It doesn't necessarily mean we liked them, but many collectors out there did.
So, check our nominations below, and look to your right to vote what model you think deserves the award. Or just follow this link:
