First Look: Hot Wheels Simpsons Family Car...
So what's next?
We have the Homer, and now the Family Sedan, and there has to be more coming. First thought is obviously the Canyonero, which would be a perfect choice for Simpsons fans, as would Mr. Plow. (It's name again, is Mr. Plow.) But being a wagon aficionado, I hope it is Marge's people mover.
Now I start with that, because I have said numerous times before, I am not really into character cars. I like the real stuff, and while I can't argue at all the appeal of The Homer, and it is understandably a hit among the masses, it just isn't my cup of tea. But this family sedan? I love it. I really do.
I didn't think I would. When Wheel Collectors got the batch, the Simpsons Sedan was more a curiosity than anything I was interested in. The BTTF Hover car, for example, got its feature on the blog and was then thrown into the donation pile. Not this one.
It's cute. It's simple. It may be the most everyday-street-car-oriented casting Hot Wheels has done in awhile. Just a simple sedan you grew up with. Kind of funny that a cartoon car might be the most realistic family sedan Hot Wheels has done in awhile. What was the last one? The Ford Fusion?
Here is some of the charm. The pink color of course, but the front and rear tampos look great. The detail in the interior is really nice too. The seats actually look comfortable.
I didn't expect to like this one, but I do. It is bound to be popular, so I don't think me liking it changes anything. But just know I'm a fan.
And that is why I want to see Marge's Wagon. If it has the small town classic charm of the sedan, it will be a must-have.
(Find the Sedan at Wheel Collectors...)
