I have some scale models of vehicles found in some TV shows or movies that I haven’t watched. Shown above is The Mach 5 from the Speed Racer anime series. It was made by Tomica in 2008 (most likely to coincide with the movie, which I also have not watched).
I just bought a Hot Wheels Herbie from the movie The Love Bug (and its sequels) which I haven’t seen. (Okay, so I have seen the 2005 Herbie: Fully Loaded). Another recent purchase is a Hot Wheels Capsule Car from the animated series The Jetsons.
When I first saw the Hot Wheels Max Steel vehicles (motorcycle and turbo racer), I had never heard of the action figures or the animated series. I’m not really interested in the vehicles, but I still bought them on the chance that they might become popular some day.
