Hot Wheels has just unveiled the artwork for the first two batches of 2016...
Well it was like the diecast gods threw me a bone.
Only a few hours after I announced that I was no longer showing unauthorized sneaks, Mattel updated their website, showing the artwork for the first two batches of 2016.
That seems legit to me, doesn't it?
So it is kind of cool that we can roll out this new era at Lamley with some Mattel-provided news on what is coming in 2016. There is a lot, and you can see it all on at hotwheels.com. But there are some very Lamley-worthy highlights, like Jun's Nissan Fairlady Z, which was previewed on JNC, two drift machines in the 180SX and Supra, and two Teslas (Teslii? Teslae?). To me, the standouts look to be the three Fords in fantastic racing liveries, the Escort, GT LM and Talladega. That Union 76 Torino is just the shit.
