2008 Ratbomb - Hot Wheels Concept Car 2008 First Edition Series 04/40 by Hot Wheels


Para bien o para mal, en esto del coleccionismo hay variedad de gustos y opiniones...

Así como hay quienes adquieren una pieza de colección y se "deshacen" en elogios para con ella, influenciando a otros coleccionistas de forma casi obscena para que la compren; también hay otros que adquieren la misma pieza y la publican a fin de poder "despedazarla" con una reseña cargada de resentimiento en la que, si pudieran, escupirían en la tumba de los que la hicieron... HAHAHA... 

Y aún hay otro pequeño grupo de coleccionistas que sencillamente reseñan en su blog lo que les gusta, con un toque de humor y buen gusto, exponiendo su punto de vista sin ser demasiado aduladores, pero tampoco desperdiciando su dinero y su tiempo al publicar cosas que en realidad no querían adquirir... 

Como yo =P... HOHOHO... 

La anterior diatriba va por cortesía de alguien que le pareció un completo despropósito que entre los Treasure Hunts (o debería decir Super Treasure Hunts) de 2010 hechos por Hot Wheels, incluyeran el modelo que tengo el placer de publicar hoy, creación de Greg Pagdinton. 

Otros podrán destilar veneno por cuenta del Ratbomb, pero a mí me parece un modelo sencillamente fenomenal, exagerado al mejor estilo del Hot Rod (Rat Rod), creado desde un principio para ser un Treasure Hunt (para los que saben, la mejor señal de esto es que tanto su carrocería como su chasis son metálicos) y con la suficiente irreverencia para pertenecer a mi colección. 

Voy a tratar de conseguir la versión Super Treasure Hunt de este delicioso auto, quizás sólo para echar más sal en la herida de los que lo desprecian... 

Les digo hasta pronto, con una sonrisa en mi rostro y si el DIOS de la Biblia me lo concede, aquí seguiré "pisando algunos callos" la próxima semana... =)

ENGLISH
For better or for worse, in the collecting matters there is a variety of tastes and opinions...

Just as some people buy a collector’s item and praise it endlessly, influencing other collectors to buy it in an almost obscene way; there are others as well who buy the same item and publish it in order to "dismember" it with a review full of resentment in which, if they could, they would spit on the grave of those who made it... HAHAHA... 

And yet there is another small group of collectors who simply do a review in their blog about what they like, with a touch of humor and good taste, giving their point of view without being too flattering, but neither wasting their money and time to publish stuff that they actually don’t want to purchase... 

Like me =P... HOHOHO... 

The rant above, is a courtesy of someone who found a complete nonsense that among the 2010 Treasure Hunts (or should I say Super Treasure Hunts) by Hot Wheels, were included the model I have the pleasure of publishing today, created by Greg Pagdinton. 

Others may distill poison on behalf of the Ratbomb, but for me it looks like a model just phenomenal, exaggerated in the style of the Hot Rod (Rat Rod), created from the outset to be a Treasure Hunt (for those who know, the best signal is that both the body and chassis are metallic) and irreverent enough to belong to my collection. 

I’m gonna try to get the Super Treasure Hunt version of this delightful vehicle, maybe to throw more salt in the wounds of those who despise it... 

I say, see you soon, with a smile in my face and if the GOD of the Bible given to me, I will be here "stepping on some corns" next week... =)

This is unique looking Hotwheels... Very raw and metal I would say... It kind of take on the outlook of a skull face.... or should I say Terminator...

chrismandesign said...

absolutely agree pal... this diecast is very in the mood of the Hot Rods culture, where the skulls, flames, monstrous motors and extreme modifications are the rule... i guess what you meant was that you like it, i hope so... THX for your continuous visits, you’re always welcome... =)

LOVE IT! Seriously, this is one casting from HotWheels that I consider adding to my collection. I can't wait to find one like this that will catch my attention and I'll end up buying it hahaha.

congrats on this ratbomb Chris! ;)

chrismandesign said...

well, that was surprising !!! i didn’t expect you to like it =D... specially when there are some airheads out there ranting about it XD... this is an awesome design and i love the finishing here, with the nude metal barely covered by a clear lacquer and the nice details everywhere... i hope you’ll visit me again when i publish his big brother (a.k.a. Super Treasure Hunt version) to love it even more... thank you very much for your kind and above all honest comments here... =)

Bera said...

wow! you have a thunt of this??? nice catch! you know, I am planning to have a custom rat rod.. it's just recently that I discovered my interest for this kind of design - vintage!

chrismandesign said...

calm down pal !!! LOL... is not that i already have the Super Treasure Hunt of this "delicacy", is that i’m in talks with a fellow collector who has one of them to spare, but i ran out of money and i guess you already know that the price of the SuperTHunts are between 4 and 5 times that of the regular lines... but you will be the first to take a look on it (along with thousands more LOL) =)

personally... i dont understand much about this car.... i dont even want to buy it if it's a real car.... but i guess, for some collectors, there is something unique about this car that I failed to see.....

chrismandesign said...

this is one of those models which you can love or hate and nothing in the middle, i guess you’re in the second group, but don’t worry, nobody will kill you for that... at least not me... LOL

OK... maybe you don’t hate it, but you’re not familiarized with this "style"... you could search some info about the Rat Rod... i’m pretty sure you will understand a bit more about this model but i cannot assure you will like it... =)
