Hot Wheels Cars Review Capsule
|Not content to be just a line of boy's action figures, He-Man branched out into a few other products including these four cars. While repaints of existing cars, these are pretty slick and have fairly excellent deco. For under a dollar a car, if you can find them, you can't go wrong.|
There's a few neat offbeat items created in the wake of the 80's toy revival to tie in to the revivals of the toys. Often, we see comics, cartoons, and other kinds of toys. These Hot Wheels Cars are on the low-end of the price spectrum, but are neat little collectibles for someone wanting a cheap little something extra to bolster their Masters of the Universe collectors.
Since these are cheap and have generic packaging which has long since been discarded, here are some pictures which, between them, should highlight that which the cars have to offer.
There really isn't much more to say about them other than they're of the typical quality for Hot Wheels. Which is to say good, nice and heavy for the price, and the paint jobs are excellent. These are durable toys that can survive a flight off a building, so you know what you're getting here.
Typical blue Hot Wheels packaging. Not presented here as we opened the toys during a site downtime.
Still available in some areas, but seemingly on the way out. Snag 'em if you see them.
Do you like what you see? Great. Get them. Otherwise, just enjoy the pictures and move on... they're a fun cheap collectible and you can do far, far worse for the price. Like the Yu Gi Oh ones.
