Sandblaster

This is a solid model that throws the flashiness aside and brings forth the adventure of exploring and exciting up front. 




Sandblaster
Name: Sandblaster
Debut series: 2010 New Models
Produced year: 2010
Designed: -





The story behind:  The Sandblaster is based on the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. From hard, rutted dirt to steep grades of rock, the F-150 SVT Raptor can take the most unforgiving terrain a truck can set its tires on. Crawling over hills. Racing through brutal desert.* And ready for the kind of off-roading that’s off-limits for the conventional 4-wheeler.

Off track fun
The looks:  So I went as far as to check the price for this one, this bad boy is priced as $44.705 USD. As per description this is an off road terrain truck, which Hot Wheels took the inspiration and took it forward making it a monster. I actually  have a liking for this model and its accuracy, the headlamps, the details in the cockpit, the front and back of the truck, everything seems legit, but of course being a toy they had to add the height factor which makes this model one of the tallest ones.

The model itself is very solid being almost complete die cast, only chassis, headlamps , the bumpers and interiors are plastic. Probably its is raw nature which is appealing or the fact that there aren't many trucks in the overall HW collection but this is a solid model that throws the flashiness of lets say a Camaro aside and brings forth the adventure of exploring and exciting up front.
