While I admit I bought the 2016 Track Stars 5-Pack for the race team Ballistik, it was hard not to notice The Gov’ner that was also included in the 5-Pack. The Gov’ner has been a Hot Wheels collector cult-favorite for years as it is a sleek track car that loosely resembles a Batmobile.
The Gov’ner was originally released as part of the 2004 First Editions. Hot Wheels designer Fraser Campbell wanted the car to be released free of graphics. Towards the end of its run, a small gray line with breaks in it was added on the back fins. Since then, each release of The Gov’ner has been laden with graphics just like most other #Unlicensed Hot Wheels. This release is no different as it features some general graphics, the #22, and even a “CAMPBELL” graphic on the side as a nod to the designer. Look for this one at retail now!
