Countdown to Halloween - Halloween Hot Wheels

Today we're going to focus on a Halloween tradition in the toy aisles, and that is the Halloween limited edition Hot Wheels Cars.

We'll start off today where the series began as Hot Wheels Halloween Highway back in 2002.

Halloween Highway consisted of 2 car packs and continued until 2004.

2002 cars included Pharoh Fueled/ Modified and Mummified, Bad Moon/Highway Howley, Drac Race/Nosfermoto, Dawn of the Road Zombie/Ride of the Driving Dead

2003 consisted of Seymoor Creeps School Bus/Fullmoon Leeza's, Phantom/Phantom 2003, Dr Van Auto/Van Auto's Monster and The Legend of the Swamp Skidder/Creature Del Grundo

2004 sets included Hag Race & Witchcraft, Dragbot & Robots of Planet Hypno, Grave Tours Limozeen & Grim Reaper Hot Rod and Monster & Brain Snatchers from Planet Deora

Tomorrow we'll look at the Fright Cars Series from 2006 to Present

It hit me today

like a ton of bricks.

My Uncle Frank is gone

There won't be a text from him asking if I was watching that crappy SyFy Saturday night Movie.
He won't be convincing me it's a good idea to wait in line to get whatever autograph he's after.
He won't be gleefully haunting the aisles of the soon to be open Halloween stores with me.
We won't be hosting podcasts about bad monster movies in equally bad make up
We won't be haunting the local horror conventions anymore.
He won't see his grand niece and grand son grow up.

He's gone and this sucks and none of this is fun anymore.
