Mattel Hot Wheels Back to the Future Time Machine - Hover Mode Die-Cast Metal VehicleIf you only made one toy in 2015, it makes sense that it might be Hot Wheels' new Back to the Future Time Machine - Hover Mode. It's very similar to the ones that have been on the market for the better part of the last decade, but this one has a new undercarriage with "hover conversion" and real working wheels hidden underneath.

If you have the earlier releases - and maybe you do - you might recognize the top, silver part of the car as being largely unchanged. The blue tint is a little different, and Mr. Fusion has been added to the back - but other than that, it's pretty much the same. The back is painted differently, as the new version features the bar code license plate and lacks the "DeLorean" markings on my original release. Of course, all that really matters is that the wheels rotate down. The good news is the car can still roll - tiny wheels are hidden under the car, so it can zoom around on your desk. Since the car was not reduced in size, however, it's now too wide to fit on orange track. If you remember "Hot Wheels vehicles not for use with some sets," this is one of those vehicles. It looks cool, it has a nice paint job, and by gum it takes advantage of the whole October 2015 thing, but it doesn't fly and it can't soar on your track jumps. Sorry, man.

Since you know the score with these kinds of cars, it's worth buying if you can find it. They're about $1 at most toy stores, which means they're popular for toy flippers to buy and sell for several times the price - how and why this is worth their time, I'll never know. If you can get one for a couple of bucks, you should - it's neat, and one of those fun reminders of "the future" from the past. We don't have too many more of those coming up for most of our lifetimes, though, so here's to the inevitable march to the grave.
