For the past several years Wal-Mart and Target have each had their own exclusive Halloween themed Hot Wheels. I have to give a slight edge to Target because they always package their cars in a 5-pack which makes it easy to get all the cars at once.
If you want to see what's come before, our pal Monsterfink did a great two part history with photos over on his blog: Part 1 & Part 2
Since he did such a bang up job covering those releases, I'm going to post about some other non-Halloween Hot Wheels cars. That's right, it's the day before Halloween and I'm making a post about non-Halloween branded toys! We also got a little snow last night. Dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!
Every time I'm in the toy aisles (which is at least once a week) I always check out the Hot Wheels to see if there's any that I feel would be at home in my Halloween Garage.
These aren't specifically branded for Halloween, but I think you'll agree the look the part.
These are all 2011 releases. Bottom to Top they are:
Skull Crusher - First released 2010 as a Color Shifter Demon (turns different colors when it's hot or cold). I like the metallic gold on this one much better.
Hammerhead - First released 2011. This car was designed by NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. Orange & black, you can't go wrong!
Custom '53 Chevy - First released 2007. I really like this one because it's in the secondary Halloween colors (purple & green). The hood is also transparent.
Evil Weevil - First released 1986/WalMart Fright Car 2008. It's a giant bug on wheels!
