Part of my personal collection, this Hot Wheels Emoticar was released as part of the 2017 Experimotors Series.

This is one of two releases of this casting that are both included as part of the 2017 Experimotors Series as 5/10 in the Series; however each release has it’s own distinct collector number and color scheme.

An interesting feature of this casting is the movable plastic drum that features two “faces”, a “happy face” or “sad face”, along with two blank areas on the drum that can be used to design your own custom “face” to display. Another unique design aspect of this casting is that the designer, Kevin Cao, has creatively incorporated seven different popular emoticons directly into the design of the casting – happy face with glasses on the front, grumpy skull face on the back, happy face on top of the model, winky eyes on the bottom, squeaky eyes on the bottom, two thumbs up on the bottom, and of course the two faces on the movable drum.
