Customs VW bug - 2009 Heat Fleet

One of the anticipating Volkswagen casting for 2009 mainline will be the Custom VW bug in the Heat Fleet team segment series. Its a nicely done customs bug with a huge exhaust pipe at the rear. There be 3 color variation to this release and the 1st color is the Red body with yellow/black flame. Also with yellow windows and gold chrome 5SP wheels.

Seem that there are few releases but with 1 distinct differences which is the openable enginee hood. There will be some with openable hood and some without the openable hood. To me, my preference would be the openable hood because it shows the engine.

Don't know if its is intentional or not to have 2 version of the same casting release in the same series, perhaps human error or cost production unjustifiable. In the end, collectors have be alert to find both versions.


Chopper Stopper - Clover


The Chopper Stopper will be release in the 2010 Clover Car Series. It feature a police theme on it with number "3" on the side of the car. After a 14 years absent, this casting made a cameback in 2009 in the Classic series also with the same police theme tampo.

The chopper is done in green with the main body being die-cast metal and the roof being in plastic. Also green are the 5sp plastic wheels, the roof with clover leaf design and a hot wheels logo. Truly a vintage/classic cars that not to be miss.
