Cracked and Closeup! The Nissan Skyline H/T 2000 GT-X from Hot Wheels!
You asked for it, and here it is. All 10 versions of the Hot Wheels Nissan Skyline H/T 2000 GT-X freed from their plastic prisons and photographed up close. Okay, maybe you didn't really ask for me to crack these. I asked you to comment 'yes' if you wanted me to crack 'em open. I wanted to get 10 'yes' votes, but got 7 between 2 posts. You can check out the first Hako post here. With a huge amount of support on Instagram, I figured 7 'yes' votes on here was good enough. Plus, my voting regulations aren't as stringent as Florida's were in 2000. (Sorry, I've been scrolling through presidential debate memes) I'll stop. Hako time...
There's not much to say about this casting. Actually, there's a lot to say but, unlike your old uncle Gerald, you read for the pictures and not for the articles. So I'll let the pictures do the talking, but I will say that this Skyline is easily one of the best JDM castings in the Hot Wheels arsenal and Jun Imai's beauty looks good in many different liveries, wheel choices and base variations. The ultra detailed and decorated New Model looks just as good as the sparkling-clean Boulevard release. Plastic wheels on the Heritage release aren't outdone by Real Riders on the Japan Historics. Each of these Hakos works, and Hot Wheels would be amiss if they didn't bring us more. Enjoy!
