Lamley Awards 2014 Poll: What was the Best Licensed New Model in 2014?

The 2014 Lamley Awards continue...

Last week we voted on Best Super TH (the poll is still open), and now we move to a poll that to us is probably the most interesting for the year.

What was the Best New Licensed Model for 2014?

We went with licensed only, just to keep things a little simple.  Realistically, a non-licensed model is not going to win, so we kept them out, and went strictly with models based on real cars or movie/tv cars.

In order to keep things simple, we have once again employed the help of our friends at South Texas to provide the photos, and all new licensed model are pictured below, including recolors.  Remember we are voting on the best model, which would include any recolors.

This could go in any direction, and frankly, we have no idea what will win.  This was a very diverse year for New Models, dominated by European cars that Matchbox may have made several years ago. But they didn't, and Hot Wheels turned the realistic card on several of these models.  It made for a great year to collect, and a tough year to pick a favorite.

But we are asking you to do that now, so have a gander at the choices below, then look to your right to vote, or just follow the link below:

  1. The COPO Camaro is my favorite along with the Lambo Veneno. But the choice for me was the Homer. I saw these online and wasnt impressed at all. Seeing it in person was a whole other story, I loved the different style and connection to the Simpsons series. The rest are just regular cars that are found every year in each series of Hot Wheels.

  2. The answer for me is simple: the EF Civic! After all, it is what got my obsession itching.

    A glorified, economy subcompact, with a cult-like following...thanks for taking notice, Mattel!

  3. No Fast Bed Hauler??? I feel like that is a non-licensed casting that has a chance at winning. Can I write that one in for my vote?

  4. this is going to be tough. So many cool models this year. Will probably go for the 934 Turbo RSR because it is awesome and i am a sucker for Porsche.

  5. To many to choose from, however the 620 was a great casting and I'm a muscle car guy if that says anything about my pick.
