Value Hot Wheels Collectibles – 2018 Honda Civic Type R (FK8)

Many value Hot Wheels collectibles is available out there that we wish we could put them all in here. However, we still have to pick them out one at a time to ensure that we can have more stories to tell each of its own.

If you have read our post in November 2017, we had emphasized how wonderful it would be that FK8 has its very own collectable diecast. Since then, we have shared collections of Ebbro, Tomica and Mini GT FK8 diecasts which were released by these manufacturers one by one like a dream. Nonetheless, we could not have missed out one particular manufacturer. Do you know who it is?

Yes, Hot Wheels.

It is without doubt that we have to add another value Hot Wheels collectibles to our list here which is the 2018 Honda Civic Type R.

Hot Wheels had finally released the 2018 Civic Type R (FK8) in Brilliant Red color. It is certainly very appealing with its dark tinted windows all around.

 

Here is the front view with the nice bonnet scoop/duct and nice tampo-ed LED headlights, grille with center Honda red emblem, ‘Type R’ emblem, bumper mesh vents with fog lights. In the real road going cars, the pair of side bumper vents are for aesthetics only. The functional part is the bumper lower center piece which feeds air to the turbo intercooler.

The front bumper lower lip is actually incorporated together with the black plastic base. Looks cool too!

 

Here is the side view with dark tinted windows. No tampo here. Wheels are chrome red and black J5. The side skirts are also incorporated with the black plastic base.

 

This is the rear view with rear roof vortex shark fin spoiler, large tailgate spoiler, triple center exhaust outlets under the bumper diffuser, tampo-ed rear lights, Honda emblem, Hot Wheels logo and rear bumper side vents.

 

The rear right quarter view gives a simply stunning and aggressive look here.

 

This is the black plastic base. Looks plain and simple with only the rear triple exhaust and diffuser shown. We suppose it is a bit similar to the real car with factory installed undercarriage covers for aerodynamic purposes.

 

Here is the front strip view of the components.

 

And over here is the rear strip view of the components.

 

For an even closer look inside, you have a clearer view of the well-defined interiors including dashboard here since it is difficult to see through the tinted windows. Notice that it is a left-hand drive version.

 

This premier 2018 Civic Type R (FK8) is going to be another great value collectible item… So don’t miss out in grabbing one soon at your local toy store 🙂

This is one unique car that can keep a child glued to it all day. I really like the color and body work, the wheels and how it came it.
