I have seen those new Hotwheels Amphicars around and I am disappointed big time. We have tried for years to get somebody to do a nice Amphicar model preferably in a larger scale than the 1:43 scale out there. Now Hotwheels comes out with this butt ugly version that I think is even beyond what Hotwheels are known for. ICK! I have spoken with about every manufacturer of mid to high end larger scale models (1:24 to 1:18), some are nice and listen but respectfully tell you they will "consider" it. Some are harsh telling me that they only consider ideas from within the company and could care less about outside influence or they talk about sales numbers they believe are not enough to warrant it. The number mentioned is about 10,000 units min. So far none have expressed much interest in making a quality Amphicar model. There are so many others available for unpopular cars and the many versions of bizarre offerings Franklin mint has and yet still no love for the Amphi!
