It's movie mayhem in Hot Wheels 2017 Batch A...
Well, not exactly movie mayhem, more "entertainment stuff" mayhem.
Two new castings and the return of a very popular model. One from a movie, another a TV show, and that last from a video game. None of the three will enter my collection, but based on the response to these three, I am in the minority.
That doesn't mean I don't think they are cool. KITT is pretty awesome, but I already have the FE in the collection. Still cool to see the interior detail of the first version, especially for those who missed the first version. The Fast & Furious Charger is the gem of the batch, with it's bouncy shocks. And the Halo car? I have no opinion, as I have never played Halo. But I know a ton of you are really excited about it, so hooray!
Ultimately, models like these don't interest me too much (although the Zamac Batmobile has my attention), so I am showing these mainly for Lamley readers who are interested. And even though I am not too much of a fan, I am really happy they are doing them. They have the potential to bring in a ton of new collectors, and I am all for that. So keep 'em coming.
