Yeah. I admit that for me this is 100% collecting paint and card art. Even then, the Beatles *have* to mean something to you for the set to be appealing.Kinda an ugly set.....
The Beatles were pretty much done by the time I was born...but of course I grew up with them being icons. They do mean something to me but I just can't get myself to go out looking for them. Yeah the car art is cool but I just don't see myself ever displaying them. Its been hard enough for me to not stray from my collecting parameter's as it is.lolYeah. I admit that for me this is 100% collecting paint and card art. Even then, the Beatles *have* to mean something to you for the set to be appealing.
Except for the Mini, this set is a missed opportunity to do something awesome.
Regardless, the Beatles' "Yellow Submarine" was a unique theme to try, and certainly unexpected by me. Since this Beatles set has *zero* appeal to most under the age of 40, forget about actual children relating to these things as "toys," it exposes Mattel's understanding that their market is middle-aged men.
I saw a youtube video of a guy reviewing the beatles kool kombi....he said it was the one of the Best kombi ever...lol....painted headlights seem to be what is making everyone go gah gah over it....which is rather pathetic....next month something else will be the best ever of its particular casting....so since no one here has posted pics, went on evil-bay to look....
So you cant even get the actual yellow submarine on the yellow submarine card art?... they did that crappy "throw some pics on a regular card" for the sub?
..I've changed my mind now that Ive seen that and the actual cards..
Will definetly pass on these. Like was said above, the only ones getting the whole set will be the few die hard Hot Wheels crossover Beatles fans that are still alive and the gotta have every set guys. Other wise, it's gonna be the Kombi collectors grabbing that one and leaving the rest
