Pop Culture / Women of Marvel: CUSTOM ’77 DODGE VAN

The newest Hot Wheels #Pop Culture series titled, the #Women of Marvel should be hitting the big box stores here in the United States any day now as the series has already begun to show up at smaller retail outlets. With there already being several #Marvel Pop Culture series over the last couple of years, this one is dedicated to the women. Once again, there are only five vehicles in this series — a trend that started last year.

Making another appearance in the #Pop Culture line is the #Custom ’77 Dodge Van. The repeating of castings in the line has really irked collectors as of late, but for those collectors of the certain castings that keep re-appearing, most are happy to see one of their favorite castings resurface with another licensed graphics scheme — and, of course there are those would would prefer to see these castings be used in a premium line that doesn’t require licensed graphics to be spread all over the vehicle.

The card art is killer in this series once again as it really showcases the bright and colorful graphics — and this one is particularly funny because it looks like #She-Hulk is trying to crush the #Custom ’77 Dodge Van, right there in the packaging.

The paint on this #Van is certainly on the “clean” side as the white presents a nice, clean canvas for the She-Hulk graphics. With the She-Hulk (and of course the Hulk) comes the color green. On this one, the windows, interior and lines on the tires are all GREEN.

As you can see above, The Savage #She-Hulk is on the back doors to this van while She-Hulk herself rides on the sides. The thing that I have always loved about the #Pop Culture line is that most releases feature unique (or variant) artwork on each side. As is the case on this one, the passenger side (above) shows She-Hulk in what looks like a running position while the driver’s side (below) features the same She-Hulk from the packaging in which she looks ready to crush something.

This release marks the fifth time we have seen the #Custom ’77 Dodge Van in the #Pop Culture line. Look for it to hit those big box stores in the U.S. any day now — starting with Toys R Us. For all you folks abroad, you should be checking your stores now, as many collectors outside of the U.S. have been finding this series with a greater ease. The other four cars in this series are as follows: #Bread Box (Black Widow), Combat Medic (Scarlet Witch), Quick D-Livery (Spider-Woman), and the Volkswagen T1 Panel Bus (The Wasp).
