Pop Culture Fab Five: The Beatles!

By Gary Barnum

By far the most powerful of the 1960s pop music British Invasion, The Beatles soared to unparalleled heights of fame and admiration. Dubbed the “Fab Four,” the band has had an honored few unofficial “fifth Beatle” members. Our third Pop Culture mix of 2019 officially features five fabulous Hot Wheels castings!

The deco and blister cards for these five editions each pay tribute to one of The Beatles’ stellar albums. Each edition features full-metal construction and Real Riders wheels. Getting your hands on all five is your ticket to ride!

Nice yes but we have seen these before there are so many more themes, topics, brands and so on to go for. Marketing team wake up have some coffee and give us something new. Thanks for you time

Well... I REALLY like 3 of these casting choices... and I "somewhat" like a 4th... but, as usual, there always seems to be at least 1 casting(and usually more than 1) where something different(better) could have been selected. Can you guess the 1 casting I'm referring to in this series?

Good to see they made the VW Van and GMC quantities of 3 in the case since they will be the most popular vehicles.

Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, Metallica, Tool... SOOOO many licenses you can get out there Mattel! Get some new licenses and you will have some happy collectors! Stop recycling the licenses weve seen this stuff before!

might as well max out that license while you have it.
I'm with Gilmore1 , Pink Floyd, ledZep ,The Doors, Yes(Roger Dean), all have amazing graphics that would look fine on those castings. Better than that Mad release anyway.

I'm a huge Beatles fan from the beginning, I grew up with their music and as I see the beautiful art work performed on each of these pieces it is a no brainer in collecting the set. With that being said, I hunted for 3 days and located all of the set in different places in my area. The castings are just perfect for this theme to be displayed on it. I know there are a lot of collectors who collect for different reasons, I collect for the entirety package that Mattel bring to us in different versions, I read all the comments collectors leave on this forum and respect their points of view, I am not an avid commentator on this forum but, I am a reader and can tell you I am one happy camper that can afford to choose what I really like to collect and this mix it's definitely one of the most favorite one I love. Thanks Mattel.
