Hot Wheels just revealed a new color and paint scheme for everyone’s favorite bosozoku diecast, the Mad Manga.
Already available in red/gold and purple color schemes, the new design will join the lineup in mid-December, just in time for the zokusha-lover in your life.

The blue reminds me of old school Hot Wheels paint.
Awesome colour choice !!
fyi, the front lip makes this thing suck on the tracks… not that anyone is actually playing with them…. ok… so i am… i’m 28… and play with hotwheels… 🙁
i buy them for my son… he just turned 3…… months old, lol
I play with them but don’t have room to set up a track! Mostly just vroom vroom drifty on the tables… 😀
literally JUST found the red version, now you’re going to make me wait 6-8 months before local stores start carrying this too?!
I can’t go anywhere without seeing the Red Mad Manga…. Irony, is that I won one from a QOTW. But for the life of me can’t find a Kenmeri anywhere. The hoarders on Amazon are asking like $5-10 bucks for those plus shipping. We need to start a HotWheels exchange thread on the forums, that would be fun.
Aaron, you should’ve told me. I could have subbed for a kenmeri. If you win another QotW remind me!
No way, I love my mad manga. And my JNC stickers. Thanks, btw
Haven’t been participating in QOTW as much, I’ll have to get back on that.
scratch that waiting jazz. i found this and a bunch of Celicas at Target. screw Wal-Mart.
I quite like reading an article that will make people think. Also, many thanks for allowing me to comment!
Reminds me of some of my old Hot Wheels cars. Colors are spot on, for better or worse! I will impatiently await their arrival in stores.
It’s hard to come by knowledgeable people in this particular subject, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
I got lucky I found one on the pegs. Will be getting more for sure..
The blue came from the 10 pack first few weeks b4 singles.
Ah, someone answered while I was typing! 😀
On a diecast forum I read that someone already found this a few weeks ago, in a HW multicar set (not sure what size set). Any word if this will be available as a single, or only in the set?
I just bought a couple of the blue ones last night here in NZ
Yeah I scored one from the warehouse today!
Its been out for a week now on singles. Its on the D case batch.. Only found one.. There are too many collector around my area its hard to get my hand on it..
Where do you live? I haven’t seen any!
In the East Bay… Saw them on Target last Sat. It was in ok condition jst soft corner but I was happy..
i never did find the purple one
me either. but i have the other two. and doubles of the red/yellow. one to strip and repaint.
Also the new NSX is out with this batch.
I too see the red MM in lots of places. I have one, but I’m not keeping it. I just found a second purple MM yesterday at Ralphs (79 cent sale until Tuesday, but cars from older cases ie blue RX7s galore). Also, Walgreens has a sale on HWs this week for 69 cents…mostly Case A cars (lots of 70 Celicas), so make sure you hit them up (and get the Rewards card to get the special pricing).
saw a couple of those while trying to get lost in my in-laws town http://www.flickr.com/photos/umbilical-cable/8319277555/in/photostream
Hilarious… also came across this A30 http://www.flickr.com/photos/umbilical-cable/8320332454/in/photostream/ seemlingly abandoned
