The Metal Base is Gone, But the Hot Wheels Mini Cooper Still Rocks!
I lamented the disappearance of the metal base and pop-top feature from the Hot Wheels Mini Cooper back in 2015 when it happened. But alas, I'm a sucker. I'm a sucker for cool Hot Wheels castings. I really should step up to the man and stop buying the Mini Cooper, but it's too cool to not buy. Especially when it comes in snazzy Beatles decorations. That one's staying in the package because I like the card art, but here are some loosies.
The 'HW Art Cars' release is the first Mini Cooper I've bought with a plastic base, and if you don't flip it upside down, you'll barely remember it has a plastic base. Of course the other 3 Minis pictured here all have metal bases and they're better for it. Since I'm a sucker, though, I'll keep buying these little British marvels as fast as Mattel can churn them out. Enjoy...
