HW Track Stars Aero Blast 2017


I have two or three Trackin' Trucks I bought three years ago that I haven't opened, but could not resist giving this Aero Blast a spin. I loved the futuristic cab and colorway on this Track Star truck! Check out the video to see if it lives up to it's name:


Below the Aero Pod hauler with my 2011 and 2013 Rennen Rig, both of which have similarities in deco to the former. I loved the alternate blue & white HW Race Team livery we saw a few of in 2013-2014, and like when some orange is thrown in even more.See my posts on the Galactic Express Hauler (2016) and Highway Blast Hauler (2015)!

HW 2017 Rally Cat


From the 2017 N-Case, the new Hot Wheels Rally Cat! Hallsguide Diecast stated that the red variant may be only available in the international cases, but these are domestic carded samples. It was also mentioned there is only one of these variants per case, placing it's rarity in line with a standard Treasure Hunt, and that HW Digital Circuit Series castings (like the recent Solid Muscle) seem to be the cars getting this variant treatment. Also of note: the absence of collector number at the top right of the card. I love the deco on these cars and their wide body! Check out the video:

HW '68 Corvette Gas Monkey Garage


Finally found the Gas Monkey Garage HW '68 Corvette  from the 2017 E-Case this past July- a Walmart employee dumped 'em out in front of me, months after I should have seen them. I shouldn't be surprised I've yet to see the N or P-Cases in these parts. Check out the video:

HW Fangula



From the 2017 B & L-Case, the HW Fangula!
Check out the video:



The matte black Fangula was the B-Case Treasure Hunt. Metal chassis and body make this a heavy little casting that feels quality, and the color presentation on both are outstanding! Be sure to see my May post on the HW 2017 Fright Cars Series Street Creeper!

Majorette Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat & Subaru WRX STI


Majorette Premium Cars Series 1 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat & Subaru WRX STI (2017)
Check out the video:


I'm new to Majorette as an adult collector, the brand purportedly not available at US retail since the '90s. Like Tomica, the opening doors attracted me to them, but I can appreciate the clean presentation on many of these cars, particularly the Premium Series models. These particular castings also feature wheel suspension, identifiable by the two open slots on the base. These appear to be slightly larger in scale than Hot Wheels and Matchbox. Recommended!
