Road Trip Finds

I was gone on a 21 day road trip with my wife and dog. We got a travel trailer and took it out on the maiden voyage. 21 days, 11 states, 4200 miles. Along the way I was able to stop in a plethora of WalMarts, Targets, a few Toys R Us’ and a couple of Walgreens. I even made it to a Fred Meyer in Oregon, which is owned by Krogers, so they had lots of Hot Wheels.

The tally of finds was:

Marvel Legends:
6 of the 7 Spider-Man Homecoming
The Walgreens Exclusive Invisible Woman
The Toys R Us Exclusive 2-pack Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson

The Jim Lee Cyclops figure from the Warlock Series

Transformers:

Octane (Voyager Class)
Bumblebee (Deluxe Movie)

Berserker (Deluxe Movie)

Star Wars:

Tennessee State Trooper Volkswagen Beetle (Greenlight – Hot Pursuit)

When I saw this little Beetle sitting on the peg at Toys R Us, I knew it had to be in my collection. I love Beetles, but they are not the end all vehicle for me. What I love more, are unique vehicles. And to have a Tennessee State Trooper Beetle was too cool to pass up.

On further investigation (who wouldn’t want to know more about this car), the 1:1 version is known as the “Litter Bug.” They take it around to shows and parades and speak out about littering on the highways.

The original car was seized in a drug bust. What a great way to honor this Bug, by giving it a new life in the line of duty. There are other “new” Beetles being used by police forces, but it takes a classic Beetle to be something special.
