Hot Wheels bring back the 80,s


Mattel have re-released some retro style sets and cars tapping into the nostalgia market.
The first wave of cars should be available now at Target in the US they are 1968 Chevrolet El Camino, 1984 Hurst Oldsmobile, 1987 Toyota Pickup, Volkswagen SP2, Battle Spec, Power Pipes, Twin Mill and 77 Plymouth Arrow. As usual we hope that the love is shared around the world :)









A second lot are scheduled for August 2016 release and include Baja Bug, 80's Corvette, Bone Shaker, GT-03, Porsche 930, Power Panel, Hammered Coupe and 85 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z

These sets all come in fantastic retro style packaging displaying the old school red and white logo. This should make a lot of parents and collectors very happy and will there be more retro releases in the future? well I certainly hope so.




Ok so what are your thoughts and will there be any peg warmers in these two lots?

Later :)
