This would be my 7th post about a Mustang this month. But I just can't seem to get enough of them. I absolutely love Mustangs! Here's another T-Hunt Mustang which I bought from a friend of mine. Special thanks to kuku for this beauty :)
Despite being highly sought after by Hot Wheels collectors, I never really had much interest with the T-Hunt (Treasure Hunt) series. I know they're quite rare, but I can't see the point in getting something that you don't like, regardless of how rare it is. I mean, my boxers are rare (limited to 15 pieces worldwide!), but I doubt anyone would be interested in collecting them. Anyway, this particular T-Hunt caught my attention though:
Ford Mustang from Hot Wheels T-Hunt 2009.
This is not just another T-Hunt. It's a Mustang T-Hunt! It's kinda weird that they're just calling it 'Ford Mustang'. Usually they would mention the year and the specific model, e.g. '65 Mustang Fastback, '07 Ford Shelby GT500, etc. Anyway, to be specific, it's actually a '65 Mustang Convertible.
Mustang, convertible, metal base, T-Hunt, opening hood, painted headlights and taillights, could it get any better? Apparently, yes, if I can get my hands on the Super T-Hunt (or T-Hunt$). Wish me luck!
Another Mustang added to my collection, but it's not from Hot Wheels or Tomica. Here you go:
2010 Ford Mustang GT from Maisto's Fresh Metal series.
In terms of paint and tampos, it's much better than Hot Wheels. Headlights and grilles are nicely painted, while the emblems and badges are properly aligned without the slightest hint of smudging. But the ugly wheels and the opaque black windows are a major letdown. A wheel swap should be able to solve the first problem though.
My very first Aston Martin. I'm not really a huge fan of Astons. I know they're very pretty inside and out, and they're bloody fast as well, but I just can't seem to get myself to like them. Well, it's not like I can even afford one anyway. Here's an Aston that everyone can afford though:

A very fine casting from Hot Wheels. The minor details such as the door handles, the grooves on the front bumper and the side skirts, the vents on the hood and the side of the body, are all nicely done. They even painted the headlights and a bit of the taillights. The Aston badge on the hood looks great as well, right in the center, and no smudges. And I particularly like the brown interior (or is it red? I'm not sure...) which gives the car a luxurious look. Mr. Bond approves.
