Part II of my 5-Pack features. The 5 Pack is back! As a collector, I've steered clear of 5-Packs for years, but there seems to be a renaissance in the 5-Pack world at both Matchbox and Hot Wheels. This VW 5-Pack is a perfect example of it!
First, you get the Kool Kombi, an instant collector hit with several high end releases, including a green Toy Fair model, a teal Super Treasure Hunt and a M&M's RLC exclusive.
There's also the Custom Volkswagen Beetle with metal base/metal body, an all-too-rare phenomenon in today's age of corporate cost cutting by manufacturers.
The New Beetle Concept is a clean release that wouldn't look out of place as a Matchbox.
The Type 181 or 'Thing' is cool any way you slice it.
Finally the GTI in white is a nice clean release, but as many have noted is a bit off scale and chunky--but hey it's not too bad either.
