While Treasure Hunts are reportedly more common than they were in years past, it’s still exciting to find one. If you’ve been following me on Instagram (@mydiecastcollection_com) you’ll know I’ve been fairly lucky recently picking up a few regular Treasure Hunts and even a Super Treasure Hunt!
Today, I would like to showcase the 2017 Mainline “B” Case regular Treasure Hunt – Fangula. The Mystery Machine is the “B” Case’s Super, but I haven’t found that one yet.
For some reason, when it comes to Fangula, it seems you either really like it or hate it. I’m from the “like it” camp, and honestly don’t understand some of the dislike some people have for the casting.
Fangula was introduced in the 2010 Mainline series. To me, it’s a stylized Hot Rod. It has a low sleek appearance that I really appreciate and this sample of the casting has a matte black paint job with pin-striping. I could be imagining things, but I think the pin-striping on the hood looks like a bat and the doors have a dragon. The car reminds me of something that you might see the Munsters driving.
What are your thoughts on the casting?
