Since we are reaching the end of 2012, where we have already seen the 2013 #136 CARBONATOR (TRANSPARENT BLUE+LIME GREEN) under category HW RACING series (ONE OF THE REGULAR TREASURE HUNT OF 2013) which i have mentioned in my previous post here:
And now MATTEL still favour this unique car designed by Alton Takeyasu which debuted in HOT WHEELS 2008 mainline series. Must be too fond for this car and decided to released another version to celebrate the beginning year of 2013 and it is an exclusive designed card as well. Before this, let's look back to the very first released of this fine CARBONATOR til the current one...
HOT WHEELS 2008 #36 (TRANSPARENT DARK GREEN+UNPAINTED METAL)
HOT WHEELS 2009 CLOVER CARS SERIES (TRANSPARENT GREEN+BLACK)
HOT WHEELS 2010 FASTER THAN EVER #137 (TRANSPARENT ORANGE+RED)
HOT WHEELS 2012 HAPPY NEW YEAR (TRANSPARENT RED+PEARL WHITE)
HOT WHEELS 2013 HW RACING #136 (TRANSPARENT BLUE+LIME GREEN)
After we have seen all these, you can notice that only in 2011, MATTEL did not release this car during that year. And now, MATTEL has yet to released another version of the 'HAPPY NEW YEAR' EXCLUSIVE DESIGNED CARD (which according to southtexasdiecast site, was released in CARS OF THE DECADES series) with TRANSPARENT BLUE+GOLD body color!!
The body tampos is EXCELLENT!
HOT WHEELS logo is in GOLD+WHITE color!
It seems EXTREMELY RARE for this model which only appeared in eBay for 1 seller to present this in auction. Probably we will see more of this unique car real soon in early 2013.
For now, i hope you enjoy seeing this beautiful casting & happy hunting!!
