So I saw my first 2017 Hot Wheels model the other day - preview coming soon - and one thing really stood out:
This model is #10 of...ahem...365. 365! Considering the basic ranges in previous years have been 250, that is a MASSIVE increase. Just think of all the different models we can collect! Overload! We need space! Combine the kid's rooms, we need a new Hot Wheels Room! So much to collect!
Whoooooaaaaaaa there cowboy. Don't go sending the kids off to boarding school just yet, or trying to convince your significant other that a wall full of Hot Wheels models in the living room is "tasteful", because nothing really has changed.
In previous years, the models have been numbered up to 250, but that has not included recolors. Now recolors will have their own numbers. That's it. Same number, just communicated a tad differently.
Now we wait to find out what will make up those 365 models. Should be fun...
