Hot Wheels Fangster Treasure Hunt
Well, here is the Hot Wheels Fangster Treasure Hunt in all of it’s glory…
As of December 16th 2013, 4 Hidden Treasure Hunts have been released for 2014. The A Cases had the Subaru WRX Sti. B Cases had the Night Burner. C Cases had the Fangster (which is shown here). For those who don’t know yet, D Cases have the Speedbox.
Personally, I am not a fan of the Fangster simply because it is a ‘fantasy’ casting. It’s just not my thing. On the other side, I guess it’s about time that this casting got it’s time in the spotlight.
The Hot Wheels Fangster was originally released in 1986 as part of the Speed Demons series. In 1996, the Fangster appeared as collector #478. For this release, it was renamed ‘Dragon Wagon’. The Fangster didn’t see another release until 2010. It was released in the Race World Underground series. 2011 brought a release in a Halloween 5-Pack while 2012 saw a release in various multi-packs. 2014 brings the HW City Treasure Hunt release.
I guess using an older casting as a Treasure Hunt is kind of decent of Hot Wheels. Keep in mind this thing has been around since the Ultra Hot and Blackwall days.
Whether you like the Hot Wheels Fangster Treasure Hunt or not, it is what it is. I feel that Hot Wheels targets the hidden hunts towards the younger collectors. $upers on the other hand are targeted to the adult collector. But, that’s just my opinion.
Here are some pictures of the Hot Wheels Fangster Treasure Hunt.
