So I just received one of these, and WTF. She's bright purple. I mean bright purple, muppet-like colors, not her previous sort of pale metallic lavender color.

 

Glaringly different when placed next to other Holley models …

 

Thoughts?

No, it wasn't carded, t'was loose. Also, no pics, as it has already been passed on to a local urchin for destruction as a toy, since it was so god-awful ugly in color.

back door garbage I guess…maybe it's all the color rejects…

the carded one better come with more than a plastic gun on the tire…hopefully a new expression, etc.

"Back door" or not, they are still coming from Mattel. They've got a direct distribution route to eliminate Walmart, K-Mart, TRU, etc. It's the way of the future.

 

The new Holley with taser has a slightly different mouth, and the gun isn't on her tire, it is mounted on her wheel well in a custom slot — like the Ramone with spray gun.  This wasn't a cheapy knock-off.

 

The ones that are being sold loose from China are from the same exact factory.  The carded ones just have cards, which for me is pure trash for the landfill.  The "Holley with taser" on card is the same awful purple as the one I got loose.  Someone at Mattel just screwed up the color choice.

 

Seriously, when "back door" sellers are moving thousands of Cars, and Mattel doesn't stop them — it is because it is Mattel selling them.

Here's the US card from a US case. Color is wrong on all of them. The factory appears to have matched the color to the scene and not to Holley's established color.

Jeff, I expected you to repaint her the correct shade as custom.

I suppose I might if I had the ambition (or color matching skills) to do her right. That metallic pink/purple color she should be is a real bear to get correct.

SI have not been on the site for some time & what I don't see is the articles about the new stuff coming out or case pictures. I maybe doing something wrong or for some reason I'm not seeing the color articles. Also to Mack me Bucks I feel you are way off base about Card Backs.
I feel each set & series is important. If you ever collected Baseball cards you would value these different Card Backs.
Each series has its special items & later we discover a car has changed or you have a item like confetti snot rod that only about 100 exist. & I wouldn't sell for less then $
If card backs don't matter them would someone send me a Chick Hicks Lightyear launcher with the New Logo on it.

I did note that for me, personally, card backs are just trash.  I am an opener, and cards are just packaging. I respect that others collect cards, that's their thing, just not mine.

I've opened far too many Cars only to find that the hidden side (against the card) has a mar or other damage.
