T​hese diecasts are perfect companions for game nights

UNO x Hot Wheels

T​he hot rodded ‘32 Ford has featured in the Hot Wheels mainlines almost every year ever since it debuted in 1998 and frankly it never seems to go out of style. Last year we had one with deco inspired by legendary skateboarder Steve Caballero’s ‘30 Ford Model A dubbed “Coupe de Cab”.

A​nd this year Mattel decided to do some inter-company product placement by releasing this casting emblazoned with UNO Cards.

S​o I wasted no time and whipped out my deck of what Mattel claims to be “The World’s #1 Card Game” for a photoshoot. While that claim is debatable, I think the UNO livery was pretty well executed.

A​nd with the Wild Card featured on the rear end as you can see below, the casting really blends in with the deck of cards.

B​ut that isn’t where the UNO product placement ends. There is also a harder-to-find Target Red Edition version aptly featuring the red “numero uno” card.

I say the Target Red Edition is hard to find because w​hen I first posted this to my Instagram some people messaged me asking whether this was a custom. No, but again pretty well executed.

B​ut wait, there is more! The UNO ‘32 Ford is part of the Mattel Games mini collection which includes Rodger Dodger (also a Super Treasure Hunt) in Magic 8 Ball livery, Zombot - a diecast with the body of a Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robot, ‘55 Chevy Bel Air Gasser featuring Guster the Gas Cloud from Mattel‘s farting game Gas Out and finally a ‘10 Pro Stock Camaro - theme still unknown at the time of writing this. So, when I do eventually find them all I‘ll be displaying them on the shelves next to our board and card games.
