Remember this guy? This spectraflame blue #Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) was released less than 6 months ago on HotWheelsCollectors.com exclusively to Red Line Club (RLC) members. The one-time run of 12,500 pieces cost RLC members $19.99 (plus shipping & tax) on sale day. The car sold out that day (November 12) as demand outweighed the quantity, as collectors had been feasting on images of this #Opening Hood Godzilla for months.
Six months later, despite being in the middle of a global pandemic where economies are crashing and jobs are being lost, the value of this 2019 RLC Exclusive continues to rise at a staggering rate. It has nearly TRIPLED in the last 90 days!
Why? I haven’t the slightest clue. Could it be a result of collectors cashing those $1,200 economic stimulus checks the United States government sent out? Possibly. Maybe it’s the outside world — like collectors of real Skylines — finally realizing this car exists? We’ve seen similar instances of that in the past. Or maybe it’s just a sign of this car becoming the next Hot Wheels beast.

With prices on the rise, it might be time to grab this one if you have been waiting for prices to come down; OR vice-versa, and wait if you think prices will come back down. Either way, the sudden rise in the value of a car that was released no more than six months ago is pretty buzzworthy and it will be interesting to see where it goes from here.
