Ok, I finally found a Batmobile. It seems like everyone stateside has been talking about them for months. As a Canadian, I have had to adjust to the fact that the new stuff takes a bit longer to get to us. The 2007 First Editions and other new hotwheels models have not been as slow as I can remember from previous years but I am always left to wonder if some cars will ever get here. At least I can say I got my TV Batmobile! for the record, it has the textured grille - I am not sure if that makes it special or not. Here is a picture:

For a Ferrari fan like me, this one was a great find. Two of the three cars were Ferrari's and they happened to be variations of the cars I don't have. I know that the black 599 GTB has been showing up in other places but I have yet to see it in its own blister pack. And the orange coloured 512 seems unique to me. The third car is a rather common Volkswagen New Beetle Cup car from the "Pop offs" series.

There have been a lot of new releases for different series' in 2007 that have caught my attention. I have mentioned before that I do not want to collect every single car that gets released but I will pick them up if I think they are worthy for whatever reason. The following cars have that special quality. I can't explain why, but these are the cars I have brought home over the past week or so, in no particular order:

Yes, I like this one a lot. The Ford GTX-1. It has the right combination of detail, color, tampos and style. The interior is chromed plastic and if I had one complaint it is that the dashboard behinf the windsheild has a fingerprint on it from the assembly process. It happens from time to time. I have a few other new finds I will be sharing in future posts - stay tuned.
