2015 Hot Wheels Brave and the Bold Variants

Hot(wheels) on the heels of my last Hot Wheels Batmobile post, and almost as if Mattel got wind of my distaste for the Brave and the Bold Batmobile's ugly rims and blue scallops, Hot Wheels has released a new variant with black paint, red scallops and MUCH better looking wheels/rims!

Hot Wheels releases running variants often, so I don't think either is more rare than the other. But usually the first variation is harder to find because they stop shipping it when they start with the new variation. So if you prefer the uglier version, you better get to the eye doctor, and after that get to searchin' the Hot Wheels aisles!

The cars are both labeled the same: 2015 HW City 63/250, but as you can see the card art reflects the car color/trim/rims. I cropped the pic, but you can also see that the 'Hot Wheels Showdown Game' graphic is different up there in the left corner. So MOC collectors have some variations to keep their eyes out for too. Personally I'm just glad to have each version of this Brave and the Bold Batmobile, as it is one of my favorite Batmobiles of all time. And it looks far better in red and black than in the blues!

Ugh these rims! Even Jason Todd wouldn't touch those monstrosities!

Ahhh, that's more like it!

    1. When I wrote this review I was actually surprised I hadn't used that joke in my last review of that car.

  2. Now I will need to grab this new red one when I see it. Will Mattel ever slap some eyes on the front of this thing?

    1. Probably never, but at least it's a simple mod if you have a little yellow paint!
