Got a couple epic Hot Wheels today... managed to win some bids for prices high enough that I’d rather not mention. Such is the price I pay for 917's...
Here’s Mr. Philip’s favorite livery which we have a quarrel over ;)
Now to compare the 100% version to the one out of the Porsche Series:
Overall the actual differences are minor besides the opening engine cover. Things I noticed were the headlights, overall stance (maybe due to wheels?), and the general sharpness of the details. I guess you’d expect the 100% to be a full step above the mainline cut.
Now for more Weissach goodness.
A pair of #23's in different colors?
Couldn’t find any real-life pictures of the blue one, but here’s this one!
Also here’s the yellow one in the flesh:
And here’s my whole crew... just one missing of the Hot Wheels 917k’s! (The original redline group is another set I am working on...)
And again, happy birthday Philip!
EDIT: I realize I left out the most recent Real Riders Porsche 917k.... whoops.
