Merchandise Monday #33

Who of you Nerd Knights went to see the new Fast and Furious movie? None of my friends are really into fast cars and action ‘beat em up’ movies; so i haven’t seen it yet – i may have to go alone:

Anyhow i love the Fast and Furious franchise; so this merchandise Monday is dedicated to the muscle cars that our favorite characters have driven in the series:

Hot Wheels is co-branding with a lot of popular franchises these days (Disney – Star Wars; and Batman) to name a few. I haven’t bought all the cars in the Fast and Furious Hot Wheels collection; since i do have my favorites. I like Dom’s car (Dodge), and i love the styling and finishes of Brian’s cars. However; my true love will always be the Ford Mustang:

In the Fast and Furious franchise; the character Sean Boswell drove a 1967 Ford Mustang fastback in Tokyo Drift. I love this car! A Mustang GT 550R is featured to an anonymous driver in Fast and Furious 4.

If you have seen Fast and Furious 7 then please give me your opinion of the film. I understand that it’s the highest opening film this year so far, but that may be because of the hype around it being Paul Walker’s last appearance in the franchise. Who wants to go on a date with me to see this movie 🙂 ?

  1. I liked playing with cars when I was a kid… had a lot of Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars… but I was never into driving or admiring fast cars in real life. I’m a little dull in that regard, I suppose… a car to me is a means to get from one place to another, not something for fun. A lot of my friends thought that was strange.

  2. Saw it opening day and had many emotions in the final moments of the film. I’ve been a fan of the franchise since the beginning and seen it go from Point Break with cars, to a fantastic action franchise.

    There are moments of complete absurdity, but the tongue in cheek humour makes it fun.

    And it would be my pleasure to see the film again on the big screen with you…but I’m in Australia 🙂

  3. I have seen the movie and I suggest you watch it with someone. And that’s coming from someone who loves watching movies alone lol. Anyway, those are some nice toys!

  4. Nice grabs. 🙂 I collect Hot Wheels (not for money value but because I like the cars) and I’ve been on the lookout for several of these. Your prices are actually pretty solid if I did my conversion right.
