It seems every year Hot Wheels releases new exclusive Halloween themed vehicles, usually at Wal-Mart or Target, and often they are little to get excited about.
Well this year they released two that I simply had to have...and made them exclusive to a grocery store that doesn't even exist in California: Krogers!
Thankfully co-Cryptkeeper Shawn of Branded in the 80s heard my cries and sent over a sweet Halloween care package that included the two Hot Wheels I would have been un-dead without, some Garbage Pail Kids cards, some Wacky Packages cards and a couple other fun toys to appear on this blog in the future (someday!)
But enough about those things, this is 'Countdown to Halloween,' so let's get back to the countin'!
But I can not only forgive this one, but I HAD TO HAVE IT for two reasons:
1) SLIMER! Green slime, and Slimer on the hood, are actually natural for this vehicle. Slimer may very well have been run over on the way to a ghostly call!
Thanks Shawn for the great care package and the ghoulishly awesome Hot Wheels! I owe you big!
Tune in tomorrow to see the other monstrous 'must have' Hot Wheel I received!
