9/30/2018 — @TannerFox, a young social media personality with a huge following, has been teaming up with Hot Wheels over the last several months, doing a series of videos for the Hot Wheels YouTube channel. In Tanner’s world, even his personal car — termed “Guaczilla” — has its own Instagram following: @guac_zilla. Surely, if you follow Hot Wheels leaks on social media, you’ve seen a premium and basic version of his car, a ’17 Nissan GT-R (R35). Today, Tanner announced the Hot Wheels car will go on sale, tomorrow (10/1) on his brand’s website: tfoxbrand.com.
UPDATE 10/1/2018 — These will be included as part of a Hot Wheels box which is priced at $119.99 (USD). It can be ordered >> HERE.
UPDATE 10/2/2018 — SOLD OUT
He states that quantities are “extremely limited” so with no price or time of sale listed, it will surely drive Hot Wheels collectors nuts over the next dozen-plus hours as I am sure many will want to pick up this piece for their collections. It should be an interesting sale tomorrow as I am not sure if Tanner’s team knows the damage Hot Wheels collectors can cause to a server during an online sale.
Since we don’t know a price yet, and this is a premium piece, collectors may opt for the basic version of this car as it is due out in the #2019 Hot Wheels mainline (standard card, basic wheels and paint, less detail) for $1. Best of luck to all my collector friends in acquiring the Guaczilla Skyline tomorrow… let us know how you fare.
