|Hot Wheels 2016 Batch F available at Wheel Collectors|
Still waiting for the E Case to hit stores? Well, let's help you pass the time with an F Case report...
It might seem too soon for the F Case, but this is an International Case, and they do come earlier than the US Cases. Plus, based on previous years, this is right on schedule. After the holidays things tend to hit at different times, mainly because stores are not ordering as much product. So it is normal to not have seen one batch while the next batch shows up at hobby stores. I have no idea if that makes sense, but just know that it is normal.
And hey, who cares, because you can get all of these models right now at Wheel Collectors. So grab your Integra and your Aston DB10, and maybe grab a few models from the WC January Sale as well. Win win!
Anyway, let's get to the case. As always, this is a random 72-count case pulled off the pallet by Wheel Collectors and opened. All the models are photographed 3-by-3 as they are pulled.
(And as always, all are available at the Wheel Collectors eBay Store...)
Hot Wheels 2016 F Case:
A nice case. My guess is the Integra and Aston Martin will get a good deal of deserved attention, but I would say my favorite of the batch is the Escort in a rally racing theme. The Grass Chomper is interesting, the Chevy Luv looks nice red, as does the C10 in blue.
As far as Treasure Hunts go, this may be the only time you might be happy not to get one. The Bad Mudder II is truly a bad Super TH. I argued last year that the Rrroadster looked great for a non licensed Super, but I cannot make that same argument with this one. The Mountain Mauler is the Regular.
There might be a third chase-type model in this case. The '67 Chevelle is the Leap Year model, with special artwork and all. If it stays one per case, and only in this batch, it is bound to get gobbled up.
All in all, a good one. What are you after?
