The next version of the Hot Wheels C10 Skyline has been unveiled, by the dude whose car it is based on

You think Roy de Guzman has had a good day?

If you don't know Roy, that is ok.  You might know his car.  If you are a Hot Wheels collector, you will most definitely know his car soon:



Roy was able to unveil the 2017 deco for the Hot Wheels Hakosuka Skyline, which is based on his actual car:

How cool is that?  The car made quite a splash at JCCS a couple of years ago with the deco Roy designed himself.  Enough of a splash in fact that it caught the attention of a few Hot Wheels designers.  Fast forward to now, and the car has been immortalized in Hot Wheels form.

Based on a real car or not, this deco is bound to be very popular among collectors, but it is that much cooler that it is based on the car of a fellow Hot Wheels collector.  I am very excited for Roy, and can't wait to get my own "Roy's Hakosuka" for the collection.

  2. Very cool. It's neat to see this kind of thing happening more and more, both with vehicles based on Mattel designers' own cars, as well as other enthusiasts' cars.
