The Homer Hot Wheels Toy Car

After months of searching I finally found “The Homer” toy car at Dollarama.  This toy car was made by Hot Wheels in 2013 (although it was for the HW City 2014 line).  The Homer was featured in the episode called "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" of the second season.  In that episode, Homer meets his long-lost half brother, Herb.  Herb owns a car company, and asks Homer to build his dream car.

As a Simpsons fan, I love collecting unusual items such as this.  I never thought they’d make a toy car out of this episode, but thankfully Mattel did.  The car is die-cast making it strong and durable, with plastic windows, and a chrome bottom and grill.  The paint is nice, and exactly like the cartoon version.  I only paid $1.50 for this car, making me thankfully it didn’t retail for $82,000, lol.
