New Acquisition - Hot Wheels City Sets Garage

While wandering through the Wal*mart clearance section I chanced upon this little gem for $5.00:

Unfortunately all the stickers were applied at the factory, but I've managed to remove all of them. The smaller sign is absolutely useless for most applications, but I kind of like the larger one. The interesting thing is that it doesn't really scale with anything (well duh, it's Hot Wheels), but I think it looks nice next to both 28mm and 15mm figures. If I'm lucky I'll be able to make it work with both. Here's some out of the box pictures:

The "garage"; I've already removed the car platform (the clearest indicator of any intended scale). There are actually doors on both buildings, but one was the sticker and the other doesn't stand out much.

A good view of the garage glass windows. I rather like them, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to preserve them (since it seems impossible to disassemble the building without breaking it).

The red building, whatever it is. The protrusion is part of a car launching mechanism that I'll probably dress up a bit.

I don't know where I'm going to go with these buildings, but I at least expect they'll see some use in my Janitoria games.


  1. Are you going to spray paint the buildings? you could masking tape the windows and preserve them, I think its worth it.

  2. I probably will end up doing it that way. Just would've been easier if I could disassemble the whole thing.

  3. Fancy. I'd be curious as to what you'll do with that ramp.
