MINICARS: 2014 Hot Wheels X JNC Datsun 620

We’ve been sitting on this news for months, but now that it’s been leaked, we are stoked to share with you, our dear readers, the latest Hot Wheels wearing the JNC inkan — the Datsun 620

This nostalgic mini-truck has long been a favorite of ours here at JNC. We’ve called it one of the best-looking pickups ever made as well as the coolest Japanese nostalgic truck. That’s why we are proud to have our logo on the first-ever Hot Wheels JNT.

The truck itself is an extremely clean casting, finished in classic Datsun orange with a simple stripe kit. It’s comes pre-lowered on small 5-spoke wheels and rocks flares and a subtle chin spoiler. We think the coolest detail — yes, even cooler than that bedside logo — is the raised “DATSUN” lettering on the tailgate.

It’s another phenomenal design by Jun Imai, who has penned much of the J-tin to come from Mattel these past few years, including the AE86 CorollaDatsun 510 and 510 wagonhakosuka and kenmeri Skylines, Mazda RX-7Mad MangaSubaru BRAT1970 Toyota Celica the Toyota 2000GT.

The Datsun 620 is the first new casting to be revealed for 2014. We have it on good authority (wink, wink) that next year will be mind-blowing for JNCers, so be on the lookout!

    YESSSS!!! I had a discussion about this with John from the Lamely group last week. Jun is the sole reason we’re back into collecting Hotwheels again.

    WINK WINK?!?!?! Spill the beans, JNC. What else is coming??!

    This is an insta-buy. Cannot wait.

      Sorry, our contract with Mattel precludes us from any bean-spillage. We’ve sat on this 620 for months. We’re only announcing it now because the Lamley Group site leaked the news.

    Great!!! Another casting that saves the year, like all the Japanese cars on past years

    Congrats!

  10. this is very cool although I don’t understand the off road name.

    Every time I think I’m done buying Hot Wheels, I see another one posted here that I have to have. I’m running out of room on my desk to put all of them.

    Fender flares and all.. looks awesome

  13. Dan said:

    How about for 2015 – the Mazda REPU?!

  14. acbpanda said:

    I’ll be buying this one, very pretty car, and i hope it gets a couple more designs.

    Wow! Datsun 620.
    I met Jun at Yokohama ” Mooneyes Hotrod Custom Show ” a few years ago.
    And I talked to Jun about next products in Japanese cars.
    I requested Datsun 620,Subaru Brat, Toyota Crown “Kuzira” and Datsun SR Roadsters more and more.
    He had realized my dreams.

    I can’t wait.

    Wow, could this be better than the RX7??
    Datsun on the gate looks great too.

    That–is exactly the JNC (JNT?) that needs to go back into production. No cheap, simple, well styled pickups are available from anyone any more. The Ford Ranger was the last of the bunch, and now it is gone, too.

  18. Kevin said:

    COME ON! Just when you think you found them all haha.
    Well, at least this will be easy to spot in stores with yellow on the side.

    Thanks for the reveal.

    Just when I thought the JCN releases couldn’t get any better

  20. 4AGE KE70 said:

    Hope it hits the stores here in Brunei. :)

    I want!

  22. Ed Torn said:

    I love this little truck. In Venezuela we love japanese cars, although we only get Toyota, Mitsubishi and Mazda. And not all models. Specially NOT the sports cars

    I wasn’t familiar with Datsun and Nissan until i started reading about them here.

    Now i wan’t more japanese cars in the Hot Wheels line up.

    I am still hoping to see a stock Acura NSX, 92′ Toyota Celica, other Corolla models, Toyota Camry and recent Land Cruisers.

    But overall, i have been very pleased with this years’ japanese cars.

    The gems for me this year have been the Toyota 2000GT, Toyota Celica ’70, Toyota Supra and Scion FR-S

  24. Matt Vinson said:

    When and where will we be able to find these? I’m a 620 owner and this looks almost exactly like my truck.
