Last weekend the Matchbox Team was among 150 to 200 Matchbox collectors, most of whom know each other and share a specific passion for the orange brand. This weekend, another Mattel Team is encountering something COMPLETELY different.
The Hot Wheels team is in San Diego for the greatest crowd-phobia event there is - Comic Con.
And among the sea of cosplay dorks and "who is Rey's father" experts, the Hot Wheels Team is showing off it latest and greatest.
We were able to get some photos of what is there, and while some lines are a little too "entertainment" related for my taste, there is a ton to get excited about. Sometimes it is a full line, other times a specific model, and even others it is just the artwork. And speaking of artwork, what cool artwork there is!
Some of this you have seen, but a lot you haven't.
I don't know how to organize all this, so I am just going to post all the photos that came my way.
So put on the costume of your favorite cartoon character, and scroll through the photos. It will be almost like you are in San Diego yourself! Nerd.
