Hot Wheels Mystery Cars: Part 2 Of 2.

They really didn't even need all that text. All it needs to say is 'Oooooo! Look at my mysterious black packaging! Buy me!'

Yesterday I posted about those intriguing black packaged Hot Wheels "Mystery" cars. The first one I received wasn't anything that amazing or anything, but it's all about the packaging, and I was hoping for better luck next time. Sure, these mystery cars aren't quite as fascinating as the Doritos X-13D Flavor Experiment, what with that dangerous looking black bag 'n all, but the car shrouded in black plastic mystery was still enough to get me to shell out 99 cents... times two!

Well anywho, as promised for today, here's what I got in my second Hot Wheels "Mystery" car pack:


Damnit! Still no Batman "Batmobile" or Green Hornet "Black Beauty"... oh how the gods must be laughing at me. Ok, I admit this is a far more unique car than the '69 Corvette from yesterday, but it still reeks of the kind of cars you'd see in cinematic abortions such as The Fast And The Furious. Still, I can look past that since this was a mystery pack find and I'm sure there is some Hot Wheels collector out there splooging in his pants at the mere sight of this "rare" toy car. I know you're out there, fella... you want it? You really want it? FIVE HUNDRED DOLLA, SUCKA!

The one thing I can't get over is the actual name of this car. The Technetium? Are you kidding me? It may be on the Periodic Table of Elements, but let's be honest here: it sounds like the name of some new anti-depressant drug targeted towards computer network admins who are suffering from severe depression.

When your server goes down, you won't be the one to frown. Hey, it's my site, I can be as lame as I wanna be.

Not the best name for a car if you ask me, but I'm probably not the best authority on such things anyway. If I was naming a car, it would probably be called something like "The Viking Vomitonator™" or "The Bitchcakes 5000EX™" (to any car manufacturers out there, I'm more than happy to sell you the rights to these names). If any of you pick up these mystery cars (you can find 'em randomly mixed in with regular Hot Wheels 99 cent cars), be sure to post here and let me know if you got anything more interesting than the two cars I've posted.

Also, for those of you who didn't chime in during yesterday's post, be sure to let me know what you think about the monthly I-Mockery Mystery Packs idea!

Best thing about the mystery cars is that your still shelling out the same cash as you would for a different car, so your really just buying a car and getting the suspense for free!

As for the mystery bag idea, I think it sounds like a lot of fun, especially given the knack -RoG- has for finding odd and fun things the likes of which are easy to miss these days.

i love anything with the word mystery in it...add shiny black packaging and i'm sold.


jojaxx (Guest) on 05/19/2008 11:11 pm

Heh. I love that "Mystery(TM) cars may be as collectable as they are mysterious."

And I "may be" the coolest person on earth . . . but probably not.

dude... technetium IS an element of the periodic table of elements. i kinda got curious to see if it was even listed on the hot wheels records... and turns out the name is more popular to scientists... if anything can be considered "popular" when refering to science

still... car looks like speed racer's worst nightmare. so we call it 300 bux? =P

"If I was naming a car, it would probably be called something like "The Viking Vomitonator™" or "The Bitchcakes 5000EX™" (to any car manufacturers out there, I'm more than happy to sell you the rights to these names)."

It would be more likely that they pay you to never become involved in marketing whatsoever. ¬_¬

Your "humorous" names aside, that car is awesome and is what EVERY hybrid car should look like.

Except the VentureOne, because that is cooler.

That car looks like it was designed by Eugene Tsui.

Not that that would be a bad thing, necessarily.

I'm in for the I-mockery mystery packs. We know you're going to get something unique from you RoG.

I think the "Mystery Cars" need some sort of unified theme... concept cars, movie and TV show cars.

I can't wait to see the new T-shirts.

I like the idea of the mystery package. I only have two questions would every package be same? And is this just some clever to empty out your junk drawers?

"Mystery package" sounds frightening. I'm in!

Is the The Bitchcakes 5000EX™ made by Jimmy James Incorporated?

The Technetium car should either be numbered "43" (probably copyrighted by Richard Petty), "99" (Carl Edwards), or "99m" (used in nuclear medicine, probably OK). I don't get the number 15.

My son loves Hot Wheels, so I'll probably get one or two. If they're any cooler than these, I'll let you know.

Hi Guys, hate to spoil the mysteries of the mystery cars, but SPOILER ALERT

Yeah this site catalogues all the mystery cars HotWheels makes.

Oh, and the 60's batmobile aint one of them.

Loved the article, of course. Keep it up !

I would be up for some surprise package from u rog.

-RoG- on 05/20/2008 6:29 pm

greenimp, yeah I'd make them available worldwide, you'd just need to pay additional shipping costs.

Icculus, generally speaking, the mystery packs would be different each time. If they were always the exactly same, then there wouldn't be much of a mystery after the first one, right?

Ease, the "Hooligan" car sounds interesting. It's no replacement for the Batmobile or Black Beauty, but still pretty cool sounding. But perhaps that's just my inner Scotsman talking...

people always opt for mystery because their ggreed and imagination, but it usually ends up being weird and not so great stuff like tihs...

-RoG-: Should you get a replica of the General Lee (as I was talking aboutthe one I used to posses when I was a kid) make sure to contact me... It brings a lot of memories. Still, don't bet all your luck on those mistery things I tell ya!


You could also try your luck to see if you get that flamboyant taxi from the old flick Planes, Trains & Automobiles... Now that's money...

RoG, if I ever make any money at this radio thing, I'd gladly send you $10 for a grab bag.

Also, did anybody else notice that Hot Wheels has apparently trademarked the word mystery? You can't buy that kind of power...


Don (Guest) on 06/02/2008 2:23 pm

lol thats brilliant. I wonder if they have those around here.

I'm a major sucker for hotwheels cars.


scurity (Guest) on 07/11/2008 5:44 am

OK, I'm sitting here with 3 unopened mystery cars I got today, trying to see if I can find out whats in them without opening them (the old ESP isn't as good as it I'll just end up throwing them into a box with the 3 or 4 thousand other unopened hotwheels cars I've got....OH, and I'm in Aus, so keep looking.. :-)


Ashley (Guest) on 08/31/2012 3:24 pm
