Fast and Furious Wave 2 – Jada

I don’t post a lot about cars. I love cars, and I have a lot of Hot Wheels, but there is something about this line from Jada that speaks to me.

This is the Fast and Furious Wave 2 lineup. There are cars that span over many of the movies which makes it all the more fun.

The #1 car is Dom’s Chevy Chevelle. This is the car he drives away at the end of The Fast and the Furious. He is seen driving it through Baja. Later the same car makes a reappearance in Fast & Furious (4th movie). It has been repainted a really nice silver color.

The #2 car is Dom’s Dodge Charger Daytona. They bought it at an auction by Tej, and later Dom drives it to save Letty.

In #3 we have Brian’s Nissan GT-R (R35). Brian loves his Japanese cars, and even more so, falls for the Nissans. The GT-R (R35) was used to drive around Los Angeles to let the new girl help stop the bad guys by playing a shell game with cars. Unfortunately this one didn’t make it, but Brian was seen with four other R35’s over the course of three movies, so others probably still exist.

Dom has a love affair with the Charger. This (#4 car) version of the Charger R/T is seen at the end of Furious 7, when he and Brian cruise together into the sunset.  It is unfinished, and looks great in the brushed metal.

At #5 we have Letty’s Dodge Charger SRT8. Letty joined the boys in the race through the Caucasus Mountains as they try to stop a giant bus. Letty’s car is beefed up for some off-road driving. She uses the spoiler on the back of the car to save Brian and solidify her return to the team.

The #6 car is Letty’s Plymouth Barracuda.  This car was important for Fast & Furious 6, when Dom takes Letty to Race Wars.  It starts the process of her remembering who she was, though not for a while.   She later uses the car in the shell game to help protect Ramsey as she uses her computer.

Finally there is the Build-a-Figure Car. coming in at #7 is Brian’s Toyota Supra. Dom wants his 10 second car after the Eclipse was blown up by Johnny Tran’s men. Brian gets his hands on a busted Supra. After a whole bunch of work, they get it up to specs where it can beat a Ferrari on the PCH. This is a great car to include in the set, since it is the most iconic car of the entire series.

I love movie cars.  I have lots from Hot Wheels, and even a few of the Fast and Furious.  I knew this was going to be a way better way to get more cars.   I have wave 1 as well, but I am still missing one of the cars, which makes it hard to build the final car.   Hopefully I will be able to find it sooner rather than later.
