I was going through some Hot Wheels today and found this 2016 HWs FLAMES 5-Pak.
A little closer look shows that the Chrysler Pronto that is suppose to be in this 5-Pak is missing, having
been apparently replaced with the '55 Chevy Nomad from the 2016 HWs MUSCLE MANIA 5-Pak. This
HWs FLAMES 5-Pak has not been opened, and I have seen at least one more of these 5-Paks in
Richmond, KY that has the '55 Chevy Nomad in it too, but I passed it up because I had this one.
Anyone else seen one of these "Error" 2016 HWs Flames 5-Paks?

I initially thought it as a switcheroo but the cavity that the Nomad sits in looks right.
That is the first I've heard or seen about that one.
Either Mattel didn't like the Pronto or they ran out of them and didn't have time to change the graphics when the change was done.
Now I've got two more 5packs to look for.
