So there's a new Night Burnerz 5-Pack out these days, and the highlight of it is obvious. We'll get to that, but first let's look at the rest of the pack.
First there is the Volkswagen New Beetle Cup:
...which is interesting for two reasons, firstly because it doesn't separate the body shell from the rest of the car the way previous incarnations of this casting did; and secondly because of the non-standard spelling of the car's country of origin:
Secondly is this Audacious, which seems to be a play on the word "Audi" -- even though the resulting car doesn't look anything like any Audi I've seen:
Then, the why-did-they-invent-this called the Pony-Up:
And last, but not least -- thanks to the Pony-Up being in the same set -- is the Chrysler 300C Hemi, a car which embodies "meh" to me but is interesting in that it is the only car in this set with a metal, rather than a plastic, base:
...but the highlight, the one that's got everyone talking, the one that will make this 5-Pack a hot seller (and a hot accidentally-returned-to-the-store) is this Nissan Skyline.
Unusually for a car in such a 5-Pack, this car has tampos on the side and rear, in three colors, including detail on the brake lights. With the metal spoiler and tinted windows, this is a must-have. And now I have it.
I referred to this car causing this 5-Pack to get returned to stores in greater numbers -- I've already seen discussion on the internet regarding 5-Packs on the pegs which had a car different from the Skyline. The speculation is that people are buying the 5-Packs, replacing the Skylines with something else, then returning the 5-Packs to the store of purchase for a refund. Presto, free Skyline! Seems like a dirty trick to me, and I can't really see it being worth while doing. If you can't eat $6 for a car you'll want to turn for $10 or $20, you are in the wrong business. On the other hand, since the numbers involved for each physical car are so low, maximising profit on any car you can sell like this helps the overall bottom line. It still seems like a low-down dirty trick to me.
One interesting thing is that the base of the car identifies it as a Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) instead of the original Nissan Skyline.
