Halloween Garage - Hot Wheels Arachnorod

There was such a glut with the last Halloween Garage post that I figured I'd give you a break before posting yet another that I found around the same time as the others.

Today's feature is the Arachnorod from Hot Wheels. It's had about 15 incarnations since debuting in 2000. Even though it has a giant metallic spider on it, the design never really appealed to me. This is mostly because of the color schemes that were used.
But this...this baby is pure Halloween!

First off, GIANT metallic spider! Next, it's mostly black, way better than any of the brighter colors they've done this in. Third, orange windshield and afterburners. Fourth, spiderweb graphics on the rear wheel wells. Lastly, purple and green highlights. That covers the major and minor Halloween colors. Absolute Halloween win!

It also looks a little Batmbile-ish, don't you think? It blows my mind that Hot Wheels can make something like this during the "off season" and completely blow the Halloween exclusive packs in October. Oh well, maybe 2013 will be better!

  1. "First off, GIANT metallic spider!" Right! You know that's going to be a good thing. I enjoy these Halloween Garage posts. I've always liked Hot Wheels, and obviously they're even better with a Halloween theme. :)

    1. Even when (or especially when) they're not specifically made for Halloween!

  2. This is one of the best Halloween type of Hot Wheels you have shown so far. The colors and the giant spider all work well with other creating a striking look. I like. : )

    1. I didn't figure out what it was about the flares of color on the hood that I liked so much until just now: they look like fangs for the spider.
