The Hot Wheels Origin of Awesome 5-Pack is yet another great example of the coveted flame logo causing false hopes and misinformation. There have been MANY questions asking if this 5-pack is in fact a Treasure Hunt 5-pack as well as many listing on eBay selling is as one. Let me clarify this quickly…
NOT ONE CAR IN THE 5-PACK IS A TREASURE HUNT!
Released earlier this year, the McDonalds Happy Mean Bone Shaker caused similar confusion among the ‘value collectors’ and the uninformed. The flame logos used on the castings in this 5-pack simply designate it as part of Team Hot Wheels. That is all.
If people focused on collecting what they liked instead of ‘value’ and ‘rarity’, I feel that a lot of this ‘hype’ would go away.
