|Hot Wheels Spoilers at the HWC Store|
Well, more than that. Look at the Hot Wheels Spoilers Light My Firebird and TNT Bird and you would know they aren't necessarily my style of model to collect. I don't collect Redlines, I know very little about them (I am working on that), and I am not that into anything "nostalgic" Hot Wheels, which the Spoilers most definitely are.
But it's the paint, man. A friend over at Hot Wheels asked me if I was going to get the Spoilers over at HWC when they were released and I told him they weren't my thing. He told me to give them a chance, because the paint. The paint? Yeah, the paint.
This is spectraflame at its best. One of the reasons this RLC membership year has been so long and delayed is because of the paint. Mattel has been looking for ways to make it better, and it hasn't always worked. It works here.
Both models arrived, and I will be honest, I kind of threw them aside. Until my friend at Hot Wheels asked me the other day if I was going to buy the Heavy Chevy, which goes on sale today, based on the...you guessed it...paint. I admitted to not opening the other two yet, so I didn't have his opinion. I figured now would be as good as time as any, so I did:
Yeah man, the paint. These are gorgeous. That video doesn't do them a lick of justice, so I took some pics too, which are below. Better, but these need to be seen in person.
There are four Spoilers. These two, the Heavy Chevy which goes on sale today, and the Cuda (not a Mustang, which I said in the video) a little later. They go nostalgic, but they are worth getting, and OPENING! Because the paint.
