Just a quick update. Here are the newly released of new batch in 2014 first set of 8 cars in the COLOR SHIFTERS series. The 8 cars is listed below:
1. 2005 MUSTANG GT
4. HWTF BUGGY
5. SKULL CRUSHER
6. VOLKSWAGEN DRAG BUS
7. POWER RAGE
8. PURPLE PASSION
Most commonly found on the net are the Volkswagen Drag Bus - changing color from GREEN to WHITE. The full number of cars in this series of this COLOR SHIFTERS has printed at bottom right corner of the card.
So if i am not mistaken, the next batch of this series will be release in February 2014, which means every batch will be release in slightly 2 month period - 6 batches in a year. As usual, all of these cars has the features such as plastic body with special paint that can changed colors accordingly and completed with diecast/metal based. What changes here is the card has shrink to smaller size compared to other previous years color shifters series and also if you can see on the right side has the baby blue square column stated CITY. All of these cars in COLOR SHIFTERS series still made in THAILAND. Check it out on the back cover with YELLOW CIRCLED.
2014 MAINLINE C CASE SERIES in mid November 2013.
Whether this series will have big impact or small in the market, it all depends on the collectors then. And for Volkswagen Drag Bus in this series, a new bubble / blister has emerged. There's a pro and con for this designed of bubble / blister used for this model. One good thing about this blister is that it prevent the car from sliding around causing the body tampos from rubbing away. Not so good for it is that if slide too fitted in the case / box of Hot Wheels like we have seen so far, might damage the bubble / blister. So, i let you judge further more on the designed of the bubble/blister, alright. :)
That's all for now. Thanks for your time. :)
