OK - start posting photos of custom Hot Wheels BRATs! (I'm planning on doing a stock(ish) conversion myself).

One other gripe I have with this model - why did HW go to the trouble of fashioning an authentic front bumper, end caps etc... then stick a generic skinny bar across the rear?

Got mine yesterday and tore into one. Going to need a lot of work. But that is the fun.

Between my real Brat, my Legacy, new baby and life in general I am sure ill fit a 1/64 build in, lol.

I have been looking over here in Japan.. I keep finding the hot ones set but no Subes... The hobby shops around do have some Outback models but they are $50+ for most of them. Did pick up a remote control WRX but it broke the first day of use :(

At least I'm not alone. Heck I found BTTF Deloreans easier.. they must have had the container fall off the ship or something..
Can't quite justify the $18 sale when I can just mod a o Holden Ute.. patience. Series two.

Mattel have dropped the Hot Ones line (replaced with the Flying Customs, which is a throwback to the late 70s HW line instead of the early/mid 80s), the last run of the series was supposedly short so these BRAT's are likely to remain pretty HTF as they vanish into collections.

 

No news yet on whether the casting will pop up in the mainline this year (the green is from the Boulevard series, which is a bit more premium (rubber wheels)).

 

In non-HW, just saw this Zee toys one on eBay :  http://www.ebay.com/...=item417012a6bd

Yup, tons of them on there but none less than $8 or so....  Looks like I will cave in again.  Damn you Subaru and Hotwheels.

$7.49 shipped.  Cheapest one on the Bay.

Ebay for me. My time + the cost of gas running around looking for one makes this a wash for me. Got a greenie and an orange on the way. :)

guess I'll have to Ebay me some too. I have a crazy collection of racy 4wds like the Pikes Peak celi and taco. And the vehicross. Brat would certainly be a good fit.

Should have taken a picture of the green one but it is pretty cool with the rubber tires.

 

Could have bought a new shifter for the Brat for the money spent on these Hot Wheels.  Oh well, love me some small Subies.

People open them up and change the wheels to sell as a custom.
