Thats a great lot you got there! Fun going thru a pile of cars like that looking to see if there's a treasure in there somewhere. Also I don't really like to collect "mint" condition when it's a vintage piece because people always suspect that it's been restored or "customed" and that it's not original. A few scuffs and chips is like a certificate of authenticity.

Yes it is still considered a Hot Wheels. Though technically it was suppose to be a cheaper line of cars made to compete with other brands from the day with plastic bases, one color paint and no added chrome. But most did have added tampoprinting. There were only 20 or so castings issued.

Interesting, Thank you for the history lesson. I've never seen these or maybe just never paid attention. The blue one looks to be considerably harder to find on ebay. I think there are a couple more similar in this collection. I've been away from Hot Wheels for 13 or so years. Re-learning & learning more, having a blast, especially with finds like this. Thanks for everyone's help!, particularly Milton's 😊

I know I keep asking for more photos but would love to see if your base plate is different the castings before and after this blue one. It is the only one that was made in Malaysia that we know of but not sure what other information is included or left off on them! It should also have one large window without the black opaque window insert showing. Do you see anything inside as an interior?

And can someone who has another of these castings or the Incredible Hulk or Street Scrocher version post up their base plates, please?
