Supergirl Hot Wheels Car
My thanks to blog-friend Gene for telling me about this latest bit of Supergirl memorabilia.
Hot Wheels cars, something of an obsession of mine in the early elementary school days, has come out with DC related cars. One of them is a Supergirl version of a 1938 Dodge Airflow.
The packaging here is absolutely lovely. As seems to be par for the course, the art is from Jose Luis Garcia Lopez and his licensing material. And, as always, it is interesting that the costumes used for these licensed material are not anything seen in the last decade.
The cardboard backing is the classic 'blue shirt' costume (I assume with red skirt if we saw it all). And the Supergirl on the truck is the headband wearing Crisis-era costume.
I always pictured this Supergirl would be in a muscle car like a Dodge Charger.
What car do you guys think she'd drive?
There are other cars in the series including some odd choices. An Aquaman Ranchero? A Batgirl funny car? A Riddler crate delivery truck?
Still, of all of these, a Darkseid old school van seems the oddest choice.
Anyways, I need to get me one of those Supergirl cars ... and soon!
