We can put our fears to rest.
A few months after Mattel made it seem that they were killing off the Cool Classics line two batches short, today they confirmed that the final batch, Batch L, is in fact on its way, and it will be a doozy for a lot of us.
The release of Batch K obviously was the best indicator that L was coming, but we had heard no specific confirmation from Mattel. But now we have. Slated for March, this is what is coming:
- ’76 Chevy Chevette
- 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake
- Datsun 240Z
- Datsun Bluebird 510
- Subaru Brat
Yeah, those last three should grab your attention (doomus, you can continue to salivate over the first one). Two Datsuns and a BRAT. (Incidentally I think that was also the title of an 80's movie starring Ted Danson, Tom Selleck, and Steve Guttenberg, but I can't remember specifically.)
That means a plethora of those three castings in 2015. The 510 in CC and Heritage, the BRAT in CC, Heritage, and the mainline (fingers crossed for a Super), and the 240Z in CC, Heritage, the mainline, and RLC.
You might need to put some money aside.
