Hot Wheels Ratical Racer (DYB55) - 1 of 8 from 2017 Happy Halloween Series

October is here, so it's time to showcase Hot Wheels' 2017 Happy Halloween series. This year's offering is an eight-car series with a mix of licensed and original offerings. These are sold exclusively at Kroger Grocery Stores. What is especially nice for this year's collection is the premier of a new series of wheels - the HW Skull.

First off is the Ratical Racer. I'm not a fan of rat rods to begin with, and the purple plastic seems an odd choice for the engine. But, especially from the front, the car presents a sinister profile and seems like an appropriate choice for this series. Not my favorite casting, but the tampos and wheels make it an OK model.
