Description

The only time I can see using a plastic body/metal base is with loop tracks due to the car’s lower COG.

Being that this model has to be composed of plastic and the ‘Vette actually contains a non-metallic body. On the 11th of December 2018, Hot Wheels also released the '50 th Anniversary Master Set' which included all the 50 th Anniversary 'collections' in one large case. When you pick an iconic HW model to highlight, a model that up until not to long ago had an all metal construction and an opening hood, remove a lot of the great features, then showcase it, it just feels like a big swing and a miss.

And if the technical side of things came into the decision (in terms of the paint finish) they CAN do a chrome finish on metal…they did it years ago with the Shelby GR-1 concept car and it looked stunning…I can’t imagine doing the same finish in gold would be a problem.

Each vehicle features Real Rider wheels, unique packaging and graphics and is a longstanding favorite of collectors and racing fans of all ages. Some of the most sought after collector models ever produced, such as the Bone Shaker, the Twin Mill. PLUS an added BONUS: The original tear-off ad sheet showing the special 50th Anniversary Collections including the Black and Gold Collection! If they refuse to carry Hot Wheels if they can’t be sold for a dollar Mattel isn’t going to ‘please the fans’ if it means losing over half of their distribution.I also really liked the special 7th model – unofficially a Chase based on the small numbers in cases – an iconic 67 Camaro in gold. I was especially impressed with the clean, embossed card art, and found that the six models in the set matched the look. It is a challenging way to collect but fun as well, because I am forced to prioritize and there is nothing in the collection that I won’t absolutely love. This 6-car series of premium 1:64 scale models with a seventh special chase car - all gold '67 Camaro.

If they were going to go plastic with this model for the mainline, it would be unfortunate, but fine. I would pay more if it were metal, but I’ll agree that this cost cutting crap is getting ridiculous.
