toys are hard

Here's something new. I own a retail product made in 2003 that I cannot find anywhere online.



I think I might have the only one that exists.

Yeah, that thing doesn't appear to exist - I wonder if it's a counterfeit of some kind?

Perhaps. And now that I think of it, I'm not sure exactly how I came to possess it. This is getting a little Twilight Zone.

According to Hot Wheels's own database, they only made WHIPS in 2004 and didn't make a G-class.

I'm wondering if it was a prototype toy that wasn't ever sold? If so, if it's an authentic Hot Wheels, it seems like it would be worth more money. Maybe email Hot Wheels to find out if it's authentic (but if it is, that might get whoever it was in charge of making sure they didn't get into the wild fired ;) ).

I was poking around there last night too and arrived at a similar conclusion. Email sent. :)

E-Bay! It could bring big $$ if it is a rarity.

I thought about that, but if it's so rare that the secondary market isn't familiar with it, the other possibility is that no one will bid on it at all.

What's the Mattel model number? (e.g Mattel Hot Wheels Diecast Model No. 2259 = Chevy Chevelle 454)

Would that be on the vehicle? I've never opened the package. I didn't see anything on the packaging itself, but I'll check again.

I'd guess it's stamped on the bottom of the car- and probably coorelates to "SKU" on that database above- that is a fansite so it may not be complete.
