I think he meant from the Nostalgia line--

I think the discussion of the 2 different car lines got combined now in this thread..

I despise the fact that these 'special' Hot wheels come with a MSRP three or four times that of the normal Hot Wheels car. It's premium pricing for the packaging.


And body styles that can't be used for "normal" cars that get re-painted and released a hundred times over



Actually, they ARE mainline cars with special paint jobs and in some cases, "add-ons" (Supes' cape, Flash's tail fins, etc) 8)


also: you're paying for the card art. Wheels are mainline wheels and not "RealRiders" (rubber)

Saw wave two of these at Walmart last week -- Wonder Woman (the best of this batch in red, yellow, blue and clear), Flash and Bane. Odd thing on the packaging, Wonder Woman and Bane both show WW, Bane and Batman on the cardback while Flash shows Flash, GL and WW. Wonder Woman's is a sports car with the engine in the back and a clear cockpit. Flash's is very 40s rounded and stretched with tail fins. The Bane car is hard to describe... Sort of a cross between an Indy car and a tank made to resemble his mask... Just plain odd looking. Also saw the Lex Luthor pick-up truck from the second batch of the Nostalgia series.

Is there a Batman car in this release or was he replaced with Flash at some point?

BTW, forgot to mention that I picked up a Hot Wheels 5-pack (just the standard kids' 5-pack assortment) that's Batman themed. Black Tumbler, a familiar Hot Wheels coptor in black (really does look like it belongs with the Tumbler), a Joker themed hot rod, a GCPD car and an armored car.

Don't know. 2 TRUs near me just got restocked with the Supes-GL-Joker case (doh!).

This site usually has reliable info on case packouts: http://www.1stopdiecast.com/

Hot Wheels has done several Bat 5packs. Them and Ferrari 5packs are very popular.

D'oh!!! Kept forgetting to post about that... Wave 3 is out... Batman, Catwoman and Two-Face. Found all but Two-Face at K-Mart last weekend and they've shown up at Walmart around here, too. Wonder if there'll be a fourth wave.

FYI I opened 2 cases at Kmart no Two face at all. It was mainly Batman and Catwoman like 2 Wonder Womans and only one Bane same deal with this wave at Target. I only bought the Batman one since it looks like a Batmobile but then the Catwoman caught my girlfriends attention so I now own that one too lol
