Cool Collectible Alert: Hot Wheels 2013 Universal Monster Series

I want to thank my hearse driving homie Kevin for alerting me to the existence of what might be the coolest mainstream toy release of the year.  When you were a kid, you were all about Hot Wheels, weren't you?  Yeah, so was I.  Well, it's time to rekindle your love of die-cast cars because it just ran head on into your love of monsters.  Fearnet reported back in April that Hot Wheels was releasing a line of Universal Monster themed vehicles.  Now they've hit ebay and are starting to trickle into toy stores.  Most of the reported sightings are on the west coast at the moment, but word is that they will start appearing across the country in the next few weeks.  These are sure to get snapped up quick because, um... just look at them!  These are sweet.  Plus, the artwork on the packaging is cool as hell.  My favorite is definitely the Bride of Frankenstein 1959 Caddy Funny Car because, whether they wanna call it one or not, that's a freakin' hearse.  My favorite car and my favorite Universal horror flick together?  Count me in.  That Wolfman Van kicks ass too.  Yeah, it says it's a bus, but doesn't the phrase "Wolfman Van" have a great ring to it?  Whichever one is your favorite, you might want to start patrolling those toy aisles.  I mean, yeah you can get them easily on ebay.  Isn't the chase half of the fun though?  If you spot any of these, please either comment here or on the facebook page and let your fellow Cellmates know where they can be found.  Happy hunting!

There is an auction on Ebay with multiple sets of all six for $35 + $7.99 shipping. With shipping its still less than $7.50 per car. Thanks for the heads up.
