The #Baja Hauler is one of the newest Hot Wheels to date. It just started to show up at retail here in the United States as part of the “H” case assortments. At first glance, this #Unlicensed Hot Wheels truck is definitely some sort of #Off-Road Vehicle, then you’re thinking, “how can a truck with that big of a payload box go off-road”? Answer: Because Hot Wheels, that’s why!
The rugged desert terrain and blistering heat are no obstacle for the Baja Hauler. Its powerful V10, twin-turbo engine and outrageous suspension can haul massive amounts of cargo in record time.
Now here is where the real “fun factor” with this casting comes in. Hot Wheels designer, Ryu Asada included a rear door that opens to reveal a nice spacious payload area — a pretty cool #Opening Feature for a car that retails for $1.
This is one of those Hot Wheels castings that the kid in you just has to love. If you had ever taken your cars into the sandbox as a child, you would be able to see how truly rad an #Off-Road Vehicle with a payload is.
Speaking of that payload box, you know who else is geeking out over it? The Hot Wheels Graphics Team. So much so, that graphic designer, Leeway Chang gave this truck an awesome, unique graphic on each side and signed it, “HWGRFX” along with including some of his personal logos — “Lee Way” on the one side, and “LWC RACING” on the other. He also included some familiar Hot Wheels designers as well in Phil Riehlman, Jun Imai and Ryu Asada, along with several people from the Hot Wheels marketing team, like Chris Down and Jimmy Liu. Apart from the names, is the #50, which we will be seeing on a lot of upcoming releases with the Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary just around the corner.
