#32: The Simpsons Hot Wheels - The Homer (HW City 89/250)

I don't know why Mattel is suddenly releasing a Hot Wheels version of The Homer, which is based on a really old episode of The Simpsons, but they did. I haven't watched the show in years, but this is too good to pass up. I'm continuing my streak of finding otherwise hard to find Hot Wheels cars at the grocery store, which is where I found this. It's not 100% on model (there should be some green on the domes), but for this price I'm not complaining too much. Word on the street is that the Simpsons LEGO minifigures are hitting stores too, so I'll be on the look out for those, which will be a nice compliment for The Homer.

  1. I've only seen this once (and bought it) at Toys R Us, which is notoriously the worst place to try to find a popular Hot Wheel. But the grocery store angle is a good one - especially around holidays like Easter when they stock up big time.

    And I've already been finding the Simpsons LEGO minifigures at Walgreens, but I believe they are scheduled to hit 'everywhere' (IE most LEGO carrying retail establishments) on May 1st.
