Ford Mustang GT: HW T-Hunt

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 :)

And this is my small Mustang collection so far:

Ford Mustang: HW T-Hunt

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:

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!

Mustang Mach 1: HW

Another dose of pure Mustang awesomeness.

Mustang Mach 1 from Hot Wheels Rebel Rides 2009.

The front end doesn't look as good as I'd hoped. It looks so much better on the card. Nevertheless, I still love this car...

...because of the awesome tampo! And the fact that it is still a Mustang.

Did I ever tell you guys how much I love Mustangs?

'62 Ford Mustang Concept: HW

Yup, another Mustang. Though this one bears a lot of resemblance to my mom's washing machine.

'62 Ford Mustang Concept from Hot Wheels Premiere 2010

Currently only the top-loading models are available. Front-loading models are expected to be released in the first quarter of 2011. This is not true.

Fuel consumption: 0.0L/100km. Water consumption: 6.3L/100km.
CO2 emissions 0g/km. Suds emissions 154g/km.

Comes with a 4-speed auto-gearbox labelled 'Wash', 'Rinse', 'Dry' and 'Spin'. This is not true as well.

2010 Ford Mustang GT: HW

This post and the next few posts would all be about Mustangs. So let's start with this one:

2010 Ford Mustang GT from Hot Wheels Garage 2010.

Hmm... the paint job looks kinda weird.. and the blue interior is not helping much as well. What do you guys think?

By the way, here's the Need for Speed Shift version:

2010 Ford Mustang GT: Maisto

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.

Dodge Charger Drift Car: HW

Nothing much to say. Just bought this for the Mopar tampo, since I already have a Dodge Viper with a Mopar tampo and I figured they would look nice together.

'81 DeLorean DMC-12: HW

Another DeLorean DMC-12 added to my collection, just for the sake of complementing the original silver DMC-12.

What would have happened if Dr. Emmett Brown were a billionaire.

Gold and silver. It would be perfect if Hot Wheels could make another one in bronze.

Open-able (and quite easily detachable) plastic rear hatch makes it easier for those who would like to fit a custom flux capacitor to the trunk.

'10 Camaro SS: HW

Bought this one for 2 reasons:
Reason 1. It's a Camaro.
Reason 2. It's got a cool tampo.

Left taillight cacat. Damn...

'10 Aston Martin DBS: HW

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:

'10 Aston Martin DBS from Hot Wheels Premiere 2010

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.
