In 2017, Mattel partnered with The Beatles to introduce a series of Hot Wheels cars inspired by the covers of five classic Fab Four albums, and now a new collection of Hot Wheels has arrived saluting five more albums by the legendary band.
The toys feature designs inspired by the 1963 U.K. album With The Beatles, the U.K. version of 1965’s Help! soundtrack, 1966’s Revolver, and 1969’s Yellow Submarine soundtrack and Abbey Road.
Each car’s packaging includes a blister card replicating the album cover that corresponds to the vehicle’s design.
The car models are based on different types of Hot Wheels: With The Beatles is a “Quick D-Livery” model; Help! is a “Custom GMC Panel Van”; Revolver is a “Combat Medic”; Yellow Submarine is a “Deco Delivery”; and Abbey Road is a “Volkswagen T1 Panel Bus.”
The 2017 series of Beatles Hot Wheels featured cars inspired by the U.S. version of the A Hard Day’s Night soundtrack; Rubber Soul; Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band; Magical Mystery Tour; and the band’s 1968 self-titled record, a.k.a. The White Album.
In 2016, Mattel and The Beatles teamed up for a Hot Wheels collection that boasted designs inspired by the 1968 animated Yellow Submarine film.
The new Beatles Hot Wheels are available now at a variety of retail stores. You can check out images of the cars at HotWheelsCollectors.Mattel.com.
