Click above for a hi-res gallery of Hot Wheels' 2010 Mustang

So, this would appear to be a big weekend for die-cast reveals of cars that are debuting at the LA Auto Show later this month. Yesterday, it was Tomica's 2010 Nissan Cube on eBay. Today we get the new 2010 Ford Mustang GT in the form of a Hot Wheels prototype, again on eBay. There in all its 1:64 scale glory is Ford's pony car with its new fascias and substantial power dome hood, but without mirrors. Hey, shipping's only $8.50 from Kuala Lumpur. If you're a hardcore collector, bid away. Us? We'll keep an eye on the store shelves at Target and pick up the final product for a buck. Thanks once again to Galvin for the tip!

        @ hohohohoh (christmas isn't here yet...)
        You are probably the stupidest creature to ever roam the earth wild. I'm all for the Camaro, but you have got to respect healthy competition.

        I don't know if you're taking drugs, or it's drugs you need to be taking... Whatever it is, FIX IT.

        @ Moosetang:
        How are people overpriced? And Overweight? The 2 ton Challenger says hi. Once again I refer you to the drugs part of my comment.

      Maybe GM should consider a similar promotion for Camaro and Volt releases.

      I would make me want to eat more cereal if I could win a new Camaro or Volt.

      While we're on the subject, has anyone noticed how many new Ford products are showing up in the Hot Wheels lineup lately? Over the past 5 years, I've witnessed 4 Mustangs (including the 2005 concept, a GT, the Shelby GT500KR, and the new 2010), the Shlbe GR-1 concept, the Fusion in both the Kelloggs Cereal promotion and the Happy Meals collection from 2006, the 2008 Focus coupe, and the new 2009 F-150 pickup.

      It seems Ford is trying to use the Hot Wheels exposure to help promote its product lineup; in other words, to get grown-up collectors to consider buying Ford products, or in the case with Fusion deal, to get kids to convince their parents to buy Fords. I don't think it's working - dealer lots aren't exactly running over with customers, and I can't see Junior crying, begging and pleading with Mom and Dad to run out and buy a new Focus.

      Some companies will use whatever tactics they can use to try and sell their products. But to use children to entice grownups to buy cars? That's just crazy.

      Any comments?

      What is up with the quality on this Hot Wheels? The ones I collected back in the early 70's had nice paint jobs and were of much better quality throughout.

      I would be embarrassed to push this thing down my bright orange track!

        Here's what wrong: (1) It was rushed, not carefully planned out. (2) It's a factory reject; the actual product is not going to look this crappy. (3) Someone at the plant stole it and is attempting to make a quick buck from someone who thinks he's getting a bragain by shopping on eBay and will end up getting shafted by paying a ton of money for a piece of junk that isn't even worth 25 cents. (4) It's a Hot Wheels, not Matchbox. Mattel owns both brands, and Hot wheels may be the biggest seller, but Matchbox has always been the better quality product. Even the Happy Meals Hot Wheels looks better than this. This is awful, even by Hot Wheels' standards. Hopefully, when the actual model hits the stores later this year, the product will be much better than the prototype.

        I've been collecting die cast for over 30 years, so I know what I'm talking about.

      I know it's a toy but it REALLY looks like they just changed a very very little bit about the car. I think Ford needed to be more daring considering the Camaro. Then again, the new Camaro sounds like it's going to be a fair bit more expensive, so maybe Ford's got a plan we don't know about.

        I agree! This doesn't look anything like the 2010 in my opinion! The rear fender flares are not even present as well, there is a paint drip on the top of the windshield! To me, this is either real and a REALLY bad scale of the actual car OR a complete abomination and fake! I'm leaning toward the later!

      Looks like something you'd see at SEMA
