New Hot Wheels 2008 1st Edition Releases

25 posts in this topic

I have recently found the following three 2008 First Edition releases from Hot Wheels:

1970 Pontiac GTO Convertible (maroon):

2008 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Concept (orange):

2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (metallic blue):

The Camaro Convertible I picked up at K-mart earlier this past week, and the GTO and Corvette I found at Wal-Mart yesterday.

BTW, where has Olds Guy been? He usually makes these kinds of posts.

Good find. I am back. We just moved and I got my DSL up and running today.

The next release of the ZR1 is yellow, and the Camaro will be Blue w/ white.

Welcome back Olds Guy!

I still can't find the Camaro...

:angry:

+1 on the "Welcome Back" Olds Guy! I've missed your updates & pictures.

TED, I was finding them pretty much everywhere around me; however, lately I noticed most of them are now gone (I was at Target, Toys R Us, and Wal-Mart yesterday for the Star Wars: Clone Wars toy premiere and I couldn't find one Camaro Convertible <I'm looking for another orange one>). Maybe the Camaro enthusiasts bought them all up already? I need to visit K-Mart soon for something else, I'll look there - if they have extras, do you want me to pick you up any?

You know what I want? I saw a Firepower 2 years ago and thought to grab it but decided to get it later. I have yet to ever see one again :angry:

You are just not looking hard enough (or maybe for the right thing)... the Firepower is out again, but not in the blue that it came out in originally. It is now flat black with red graphics. I think it has had a couple other paint schemes since the original release too.

Thanks all for the welcome back. I will be back in the swing by the weekend. I have lots of new stuff to takes pics of and upload. Knightfan get ready....

DF:

you cna probably get one on ebay for like $2.50 + s&h.

That's why I'll often spend my last $.99 on a HW if is is

likely to be rare.

I have like 6 or 7 of the white diamond '63 Cadillac hearses

that MB came out with, but only 2 black ones... I passed on

a few and thought I'll buy one later, I opened one for myself

& opened one for Sofia and now I don;t have a black one in

a package.

You guys get the '69 Cadillac SDV hardtop from matchbox?

It's gold & has the same ('60s knock-off hub racng wheels)

rims all the MB classic cars have been wearing past 2 years.

I have the Camaro ragtop concept, have not seen the GTO-J

ragtop or the ZR1.

*grins*

I'm ready!

he he

BTW...how far are you from Detroit now? I'll be in that general area for lunch on Aug 8 (at least, that's the plan now...I had posted about the road trip some time ago, but not sure if you saw that. I'll post again soon about it).

I suspect HW will have a production version of the Camaro out by the end of the year or next year. They've done concept and production versions of the Challenger so far.

I have both...it's interesting to compare the concept and production Challenger side-by-side. I actually prefer the production car's profile.

Yeah, I think they did a good job on both... they captured the 1:1 differences between the concept and production pretty accurately.

I've got the concept Camaro, I'll have to get the ragtop. I also want the ZR1 to go with my C4, C5, and C6.

I got a couple of these already, the graphics

are bit too much but I've seen MUCH worse

from HW. I'm sure at some point we'll see a

"Taco-Bell Tribal Tattoo-Art Edition" Camaro.

Yey... for the Camaro they'll probably just

mold a new green-house-glass part # with

the b-pillar and side windows.

:( Depressing

Who didn't see that coming? You can always cut the plastic out. :P

If they make the b-pillar part of the metal cast, then you've got a problem.

I hope they do a G8 and CTS...

Agreed!

Also, I can not beleive no one has ever done a 1:64 scale

'59 Buick, what the heck?, it's such a cool car styling wise!

You know there is a '59 Buick Electra 225 1:18 out now, right? By the same company that did the '71 Riv in 1:18.

Agreed!

Husky made one in the early '60s...I have 3 of 'em in my collection, Invicta hardtops.. they are tiny, probably closer to 1/70th scale. Husky was Corgi's Matchbox competitor brand, eventually renamed Corgi Jr.
