Hot Wheels Homer
At the February 15th 2014 Kday, I was able to grab most of the new stuff I was after except for one car – THE HOT WHEELS HOMER! In our store, only 2 came out of 12 cases. I heard of other Kmarts having almost one to each case. While overly happy with the LaFerrari (I’ll have a post soon featuring that one), I was a little bummed out that I missed out on the Hot Wheels Homer. In my area, I figured that if I didn’t find it at Kday, I wasn’t going to find it at all.
Today we had our local Hot Wheels club meeting. Upon entering, I chatted for a little while with the club president and the Hot Wheels Homer came up. He had asked me if I had seen one in person. I said no and that I was hoping to get one soon. He pulled one out that he had removed from the blister and handed it to me. Seeing that I open everything I get, I asked him what he wants for it. He told me that I could have it – consider it a RAOK. While I won’t name names but if by chance you read this post, I can’t thank you enough. 🙂
I find the ‘value’ of the Hot Wheels Homer extremely funny. A few weeks back there was one that sold on eBay for over $100! Now that Kdays have hit and there are more in circulation, I see prices took a sharp nosedive and are hovering around $4. Those gotta have it first guys crack me up!
Being a somewhat popular casting, I decided to do a special series of shots for this one. The Hot Wheels Homer shown below can be rotated 360 degrees! Follow the simple instructions below.
