How much different is the matchbox casting of the Thing?

Both companys are Mattel and I believe both castings appeared at about the same time....?

...besides the fact that one has the top and one doesn't... and were not talking about the wheels

The Hot Wheels casting is more custom, lower, has fender flares, and an open rear engine hatch. The matchbox version is stock.

I just grabbed a blue one and didn't know they were out. I was wondering if it was an old Kday car that I missed or something.

Not an FTE version. I was saving it for the wheels but another collector friend of them traded me another Corvette I needed for it. I still have a little remorse over that - it is such a nice looking casting, but it went to a loving home for Volkswagens.
