12/17/2018 — With the unveiling of the OFFICIAL 2019 HOT WHEELS MAINLINE LIST came the mentioning of a new #2019 New Model casting, the Deora III. The simple mentioning of it has #Deora and Deora II fans hoping that it will match the aura of the previous castings.
Rumor has it that Hot Wheels Designer, Mark Jones is on the project AND as it turns about, we may have already seen a glimpse of what the Deora III will look like. A few collectors think that Mark previewed the casting at his autograph signing at the 32nd Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention back in October. It is seen here on the back of another new casting — called Wide Open — which will appear in the Car Culture / Team Transport line.
Before you pass any judgement, this is a rough “first shot” of what we think is the Deora III. Obviously, it has no paint, an unfinished body and its missing any kind of window piece. What we do see are the two #Surfboards that the Deora castings typically feature, and a bicycle. If this is in fact the Deora III, it will be exciting to see what the finished product will look like. But, for now, I’ll leave you with this…
