T-Hunted!: A ?nova? série de Fast And Furious da Hot Wheels para 2016. Será?

Most said it wasn't happening this year.....but there ya have it.....unfortunately for many they are all repeats except the Honda....I don't care though because 4 out of the 7 repeats I don't have.....those 4 sell for big bucks on the reseller market....this with be the rare set I look for daily until I get it....it will sell out quickly.

Wow. What a disappointment.
All they had to do was put that blue escort ina fast and Furious card, and they couldn't even do that?
And Johnny Tran's Honda S2000 has the hardtop, not Suki's pink one... hers was a convertible. The black S2000 would have been easier to do, the tampo would have been simpler.
..and ANOTHER black 70 Charger?,,, and it STILL has the R/T on the side... the one from the movie did not have R/T on it

giant epic fail.

UNLESS someone's can read into the Spanish and determine the repeat cards are just prototypes?

Does not say if they are prototypes or not.



The "new" series of Fast And Furious Hot Wheels in 2016. Really?
Yesterday we showed here a picture of the Honda S2000 that will be in the range of eight cars of Fast And Furious, and today we have a picture of the whole series with eight cars. It is not known if the photo shows all the cars if the series or is an assembly with other cars of the previous series. It is hard to believe that only Hot Wheels put a unique car in this series regarding the above.

The Fast And Furious Hot Wheels series is one of the most sought after by fans of the movies and thumbnails, and the expectation is always great for them to choose new models to put on the show. There are dozens of good options, but are always the same. Unfortunate. The photo series is winwinwinning Instagram .

Soon we will have more information about the series, and you will know everything before here! Click here to see more information about the series of Hot Wheels Fast And Furious and on cars from other manufacturers.

I'm not very excited about these to be honest with you.
Most of the castings are repeats with maybe a slight difference in tampos or wheels.

I was thinking the blue Escort was going to be a given with the next Fast and Furious car set. I agree that Suki's pink Honda S2000 is nice to have but as a true convertible as it was in the 2F2F movie.

They could do the blue 1969 Camaro, 1970 Challenger and even the 1970 Monte Carlo if you stretch it a bit. 1969 Mustang Custom from Furious 6. Some other imports. Did they do the black Civics from the first one? There should be others available in their inventory but might not be as cost effective compared to repeating these as they are already being produced. :confused:

Portuguese, it's a Brazilian site. That's like asking for someone fluent in Scots or Frisian for help reading Lamley.

Scots language article, in Frisian
Scots language article, in Scots
Frisian language article, in Frisian
Frisian language article, in Scots

Spanish (Castilian), Galician (another Spanish language) and Portuguese are related, but not the same. English, Scots and Frisian are also related, but with a similar degree of differences. Those articles in Frisian and Scots should be as understandable to an English-only reader as Portuguese would be to someone who only reads Castilian/Spanish.

TL;DR - Brazilians speak and write in Portuguese typically.

The Camaro was a Yenko and there is probably a liscensing issue, The Challenger should be a given, was already issued in the right colors. The Monte Carlo is another great idea,

They have a 69 Mustang cast, wasn't that the one they used for the super TH?... but it seems to me it's more road-racer like... I did this custom one of the Mustang....

2016 Fast and Furious Hotwheels set

I agree with all, this new 2016 set is really disappointing!!! even the S2000.
Racing Champions did already a perfect replica of this one 13 years ago and it's a good example how it should be...

but better for me and other people who have this beautiful Racing Champions version :grin2:

HW could make another versions of 350Z from Tokyo Drift like Racing Champions did, all with the same casting but different paint/tampos, better than the same cars again and again:

On ebay there are many HW customs, maybe not well made but there are some really good ideas! HW has a 1972 Camaro casting, why don't they make a F-Bomb Camaro or maybe the blue Subaru Impreza or dark gray (not blown!) Charger from 5th movie or Off-Road Charger or bare metal Charger Maximus from the last movie... there are really more than enough blown Chargers produced. Maybe the yellow Tjarada Mustang or dark red Saleen Mustang from 2F2F. It's really not very difficult to find at least 4-5 new cars...

Maybe part of the reason the cars that have been mentioned that aren't made is because Mattel does not have the license to make them?
Or they might not want to modify any existing casting die for a one or two time run because it would not justify the cost of doing that?

It's been about a minth and a half since this was first posted, so no news?

I agree on the S2000 from Racing Champions, BUT...

Not taking anything away from FF Collector.. I think he may have the best F&F diecast collection I have ever heard of!...

Racing Champions, IMHO, had a lot of problems with their whole series... starting with that S2000, as nice as it was, it was out of scale with all the other cars they put out. (what is it, about 1:56th scale?)
Also they put out so many cars, most you couldn't even find in the movie... I know, some may have been in the background, but I'm pretty sure..in one case... they put out a Dodge Viper in one off the early series that was a model year after any of the movies they were trying to represent!

They also had those weird 1/64th releases with the giant figurines that didn't match any scale anything that they put out.

So overall, I don't think there was any series from any manuf. that was all in all, really outstanding... with the Racing Champions stuff, the HW crap, then the Jada takeover putting their signature Rubber band style wheels and tires on stuff, with no 1:64th stuff.

But to end on a positive note, there are SOME really outstanding single cars in some of these series'
