Pop Culture: Alex Ross DC Heroes Series Preview!

By Gary Barnum

Legendary comic artist/painter Alex Ross is known for his majestic hero work and more. Now Hot Wheels pays tribute to this titanic talent with a Pop Culture collection.

Known for his incredibly life-like renditions of superheroes such as those of DC Comics, some of Ross’ most iconic work is reflected in this set. And don’t miss the representational blister cards – also the work of Alex Ross. This super set will emerge in March.

Wait is Mattel listening to collectors??? This is the first Pop Culture set in a while that is actually worth collecting!!! I know why the same castings get used for the most part you need real estate to put graphics on so I can forgive that. These are top notch and rival the Nostalgia series!

Way too much of this sort of thing over and over. Supeman, Batman, Starwars, candy bars, etc. Way past time for something new.

Maybe after viewing a Customs Contest at a HW Convention/Nationals
one's perspective would change one's view of it.

As stated above, castings that lend for a good amount of surface area
makes for a bigger canvass for the artwork.

No doubt Elliot and his team's "tampo" process would be ecstatic
over todays evolution of it.

These will be scooped up by "collectors" for e-bay. It will be hard to find these on a peg anywhere, i sure hope i'm 1 of the lucky to get even a partial set. i'm done whining now! good luck to all!!!
