Dairy TEAM Hot Wheels

Monster Dairy Delivery (MDD) is now feature in TEAM HOT WHEELS series. Yes, the heavy duty racing tempo series have now added the Monster Dairy Delivery casting to its lineup and its looks freaking awesome. Just wishing that the normal Dairy is feature too but can't have them all now can we.

Spotting a black body with heavy Hot Wheels racing tempo. Yellow plastic wheels and looks like a black plastic base or Dark Chrome base.

Special thanks to a seller in Mexico (small_cars_mx) for posting up this new Dairy and the 1st to appear. Now the search is on for this Monster to my collections. Cheers.

And now purchase just ten basic Hot Wheels cars at participating Kroger stores from May 1st to June 5th and we’ll send a free one racing your way!

This special promotion features four Hot Wheels Designs vehicles, each with a different base color. Which one will you receive? You won’t know until it arrives, but it’ll be one of these customizer favorites :
  • Dairy Delivery (blue)
  • Hiway Hauler (black and gray)
  • Surfin' School Bus (yellow)
  • School Busted (red)

Official News release here

The Blue Dairy Delivery is what shown below looks like. Nothing special, just a plain color DD. It will come in a Baggie bag and cardboard.
Well to me this is a great promo for those that collect any of the selected 4 casting BUT, for a customizer that the promo is aim at is a bit too hefty a price. 

Now from a Collector point of view, there is NO Guarantee that the free Design car received will be what the collector wanted. How many 10's Hot wheels to purchase to guarantee the wanted casting. If you do get the wanted casting then its great, what happen if its not the wanted casting? Furthermore its only available Exclusively to Kroger stores, so good luck with that.

Now from a Customizer point of view, am no customizer but i do know i will not spend $10+ for a casting to customize on when i can find cheaper alternative elsewhere. After all the casting will be stripe of paint and such so it doesn't matter where the source of the casting coming from. Off course there the hard to find casting like the School busted, again see collector point of view.

Since am a DD collector i will try to locate this for my collections, so wish me luck. cheers.
