You Saw it Here First: The 2016 HW Flames 5-Pack
Okay, maybe you've already seen it. If I've found it, I'm sure many others have. But since the 2016 HW Flames 5-Pack isn't yet clogging up the diecast interwebs, I thought I'd crack it open and let you guys see the cars close up in all their glory!
I'll let the pictures do most of the talking and later in the week do a post on the return of the 5-Pack. Hot Wheels 5-Packs were cool in the '90s, but somewhere along the line lost their collectability beyond the annual Ferrari pack. While that's now gone, Mattel is giving us collectors lots to scramble for in terms of 5-Packs--both from the blue brand and the orange brand.
One more note, a few of these castings haven't been popular since 2005, like the Viper and the El Camino, so that makes this pack extra fun. I could do without the colored windows on most of these models...but hey...I can't complain about a 5-Pack with 5 licensed models.
