I Love My Series 6 Superbird! Love it so much I had to open it. Love the flawless mirror-shine paint finish, metal base, real rubber tires, authentic deco, opening hood...

Tell me, is something eluding you, sunshine? Is this not what you expected to see?

Wait-- this isn't the Hot Wheels™ version! The HW version is Ugly Olive with blue windows, and has a lot less accuracy. The hood doesn't even open-- yet the HW car costs twice as much!

I'm diving into my flameproof bunker now.

LOL I'm sitting here chuckling sardonically at your thread. Of course they pulled it. It speaks directly to the matter of quality verses hype. Everyone knows which always wins when shown in the light of day. Theres no getting around quality, is there?

I just called out [a pair of Mattel® Managers] in the "Issue of Quality from the Plant" thread. Wanna bet they do not come forward to answer for their lack of leadership?

You haven't been annoying them as much as I have these past few weeks. I also challenged that leadership, or lack thereof, in the same thread yesterday.


Great stuff! Love your Johnny Lightning-brand Superbird. If that doesn't make em' feel like sh!t, nothing will. All the JL Holiday Classics are nicer than HWC cars at a fraction of the cost.

I'll make sure to comment on this subject as soon as I'm able to post again. I've been a bad boy and have been silenced with the push of a button; I guess I wasn't playing nice with the other boys and girls. Keep up the good work and be careful of the Hot Wheels Police.

You hit a nerve with someone there, when you look at that car compared to the club version it wasn't just the quality that got a slap in the face, it was also the moron that designed the 4x4 HWC version. It's a real shame that the hood doesn't open on the Superbird, combine that with the 4x4 stance and awful color and it really seems that whomever is making the decisions on what we get and how we get it, just doesn't care. I can only say that I'm glad that I didn't buy it.

The Virtual Vending Machine blind sale is now only a way for them to get rid of the garbage. The last one they sent me was that ugly olive Superbird with black-rimmed Real Riders. There is nothing about that car I like.

And what's with those wheels-- red stripes AND white letters?

...In the meantime, I changed my sig file.

Tom, you are naughty, naughty, naughty! That's funny. Saw your new sig in another thread on the RLC board. I wonder how long it will take someone to notice?

I was amused by that one place where HWCSomebody said in effect, "bb, your complaints are becoming repetitive."

I just put in my little sarcastic digs from time to time. I'm not into full frontal nudity-- I mean, full frontal assault... I just make guerilla hit-and-run postings.

Came here first; now I'm gonna go read the boards and see what kind of havoc y'all are wreaking. ("On my command-- unleash HELLLL!!" ...Typey typey type)

Since its creation in 1976, the Neet Streeter has never had windows.

You can change that.
