Halloween Garage - Revenge of Rigor Motor

While most of the blogosphere is getting uber excited over the upcoming 2014 Hot Wheels pop culture vehicles, I was thrilled to find a new addition to the Halloween Garage so early in the year. I actually found this one in December when the first wave of 2014 started hitting pegs. And with this being the fifth (at least) version, it's in good company.

I give you the latest and greatest Rigor Motor...

 As with most redeco's (that's fancy collector talk for redecoration, which is when they re-release the exact same toy with a new paint scheme) the only differences are to the colors used. The main body is red metal flake, you can see the glittery effect better below. The flames are a nice touch and I like the subtle form of the flaming skull on the coffin lid.

I have a couple of minor nits to pick with this incarnation. I don't like the grill/skulls in black, it makes it very hard to make out what they are at a distance. I'm also not a fan of the use of gold and silver. You know what, the more I look at it to figure out why I don't like the separation I realize it's the black that's throwing it all off for me. Something about it just doesn't sit right with me among the shiny metals.

Even in the card art, I don't think the black works all that well.

    1. It's definitely closing in on Fangula as the unofficial official car of the blog.

  3. Pretty sweet, I like it! I don't have this one but I have some other spooky Hot Wheels. I've started up a bit of a Halloween garage all during the month of December. I don't know why, something about creepy/macabre cars is just cool I guess.

    1. There's still plenty of them on the pegs as it just came out, so keep an eye out. Glad I"m not the only one collecting spooky cars.

    2. I never did find this version of the Rigor Motor, but I do like the new 2014 Halloween redeco. I was lucky enough to find all 5 of the 2014 Halloween Hot Wheels.

    3. It's still out there, at least in my area. I see it still on the pegs.
