As you might know from reading my overview of Mattel's new Fast and Furious line for 2017, they have started to release 1/55 diecast vehicles from The Fast and Furious movie franchise across all the films. This section is going to attempt to keep track of what has been released. Picture this as a work-in-progress guide to what is out there and not a definite guide with some mistakes slipping through. Check the main reviews section for other diecast, model cars and radio control write-ups and comparisons. All of my reviews unless otherwise stated are products that were purchased directly from a retail establishment or spotted there either in-person or online.
Mattel's Fast & Furious 1/55 Diecast Line Reference Chart / Checklist for Series 1 / 2017
This table lists all of the Mattel Fast & Furious 1/55 single diecast vehicles released so far that I know of from the Fast and Furious movie franchise and have either saw personally myself or online for sale in actual packages. Vehicles which are exclusive to gift packs such as three or five packs are listed with EX for the # (car number) and listed here as a bonus. By all means this is not a complete listing and not toted as a definitive guide. I will try to include some feature photos here and there but do not plan to include links to photos of all of the cars or collector sets. I doubt the first rounds of cars from late 2016 and 2017 will become harder to find as many had to be discounted with the glut of the first singles out there of the original releases like the 1970s Ford Escort and 1969 Charger Daytona but the Eclipse and others seem to be not as quick to get out there - these are not serial numbered or limited except of course to cars being exclusive in the various gift packs instead of being released as singles. I am not listing cars in the playsets as they look identical to what is available in single packs unless later they include an exclusive vehicle. The vehicle years and car names including the movies are taken directly off the 1/55 line packages. I will add anything noteworthy about the vehicle in the Comments section if there is any. Looks like Mattel has discontinued this 1/55 line-up for the moment so we will see what the future brings as for 2019 they are focusing on their Hot Wheels 1/64 Premium Line-Up of Fast and Furious cars.
A big Thank You goes out to the many people who have provided me with tips, photos and information for this guide as it wouldn't be as complete or detailed without your help. Some that I'd like to specially thank include Chris Lee who helped provide Toys-R-Us exclusive and new release single car information. The many others who have noted auctions and spotted prototypes, test shots and other items to confirm they are out in the retail market such as people like Sigi, Chris Lee, Colin, Damin, Emmanuelle from Mexico, Steve J., etc.. I appreciate all your help with this guide and series of Mattel 1/55 cars from the Fast and Furious movie franchise as without all you collectors this guide wouldn't be possible.
LAST UPDATED 11/30/2019 - PAST UPDATES:
LATE 2019: Sigi reports that many of the harder to find cars are turning up in other parts of the world thus being listed on the famous auction site for the UK area. They could have gotten new stock in by chance. There are some interesting variations such as the Elite-8 pack you can read about below such as color variations and different packages.
EARLY 2019: 1/55 Car Found in Blu-Ray Pack of 1 to 7 Fast & Furious Movies - Sigi informed me that he had found a special Blu-Ray set of one to seven movies that includes a bonus diecast vehicle: The Ram Armored Truck w/Snow Plow from F8 / Fate of the Furious which previously was only found in the Road Muscle Pack -Five Car Set. No idea why they decided to include that vehicle unless Mattel had extra stock on-hand for that. I'd still go for the Road Muscle Pack - Five Car Set unless you would like the first seven movies on Blu-Ray - check your Region codes and such before buying. View a photo of this Blu-Ray set and truck via Sigi's Flickr album.
DISCOUNT STORE FIND: Check Ollie's Discount Outlet, their website is at www.ollies.us for locations near you within the USA. I'm not guaranteeing you'll find any 1/55 Fast and Furious Mattel cars but I did come across some stock of them at my local store. They didn't have any of the latest releases but you never know. I did find one each of the Mitsubishi Eclipses for my collection, the green 1996 and the 2F2F convertible in purple. They also had some of the first issues and the Corvette Grand Sport roadster in silver as of early July 2018. Each store is different so the caveat is that they might not have any but be sure to check the toy section where they hang cars and such on the pegs behind other items, etc.
EIGHT PACK: There is a pack of eight 1/55 cars out as spotted by Chris Lee on eBay called "Fate of the Legends". This doesn't included any special exclusive cars but does have the 2012 Nissan GT-R [R35] in Blue (Ben Sopra), 2015 Jaguar F-Type, Mercedes AMG GT, 1956 Ford Victoria, 1970 Dodge Charger Off-Road, 1961 Chevy Impala, 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse (Brian's Green Car from the first movie) and the Local Motors Rally Fighter. The set also includes a mini poster. No word what stores are going to carry this but it is another brown box set like the first Elite 8 pack that Amazon carries.
POSTER: In April 2018, Colin M. emailed me a photo of the front and back of the mini poster included in the later issues of these cars. The poster says Series 2017. Sadly they haven't hit the US in plentiful supply if at all for everyone looking to get these new ones for their collection like the 2F2F Pink Honda S2000 and Eclipse, etc. They do show all 32 cars as Sigi pointed out to me, a fellow collector and has an extensive photo album of F&F merchandise to showcase. The package says about a free mini poster, they seem to be in the latest release of cars such as the white Subaru.
SPECIAL NOTE - Late February 2018: An interesting note, I got emailed a few photos of the newer cars coming out which also helped me fill in the guide along with confirmation from Steve J. These are going to include a mini poster according to an email I got from a site visitor Damin M. who I thank for this info. Unfortunately, I don't know when the rest of this series will be released as some areas have them but I haven't spotted them myself locally in the US in person or online like Amazon, Walmart.com or Mattel.com They haven't hit the US shelves but are spotted online on auction websites Internationally so other areas / counties seem to have the last batch. I wish I could be of more help to collectors of this series. Number 7 and 25 are the only open spots as the 1972 Plymouth GTX is numbered at 32 the same as the Ford GT-40 most likely as an error I presume.
OTHER PAST UPDATES: Sigi pointed out this post on T-Hunted that shows a poster which has a three car pack that I haven't seen around with a yellow Ferrari 458 Italia exclusive car. Also got info from Steve J. on the Mercedes AMG-GT and Koenigsegg CCXR to fit them in two empty slots on the list. As confirmed with Sigi, the '12 Subaru Impreza WRX STI has not been spotted out for sale in the retail market.
Looking for photos and detailed shots of these cars? Check out Sigi D's 1/55 Fast & Furious album on Flickr.
The Elite-8 Pack comes in two variations - one in a flat cardboard box and one in a display box avaialble from Mexico such as pictured here on Sigi's Flickr from his collection - Display Box Variation Elite 8 Pack.(Mexico Only?)
The Furiously Fueled Seven Pack include the #17 2010 Koenigsegg CCXR from Fast Five and #8 Letty's Local Motors Rally Fighter from F8. The seven pack also includes the harder to find #30 1966 Corvette and #4 1956 Ford Victoria.
Interesting variation as told from a Mexican collector and I thank Sigi for the info - seems that there are two variations as well of the Furiously Fueled Seven Pack. The rarer second version includes metallic paint on the Roadrunner plus the Koenigsegg has only silver front lights like on a single card. More common is the one with the plain orange Roadrunner and front lights are detailed.
There are more variations such as on the packaging themselves from text in different languages and white / black colors, etc. but that would be for someone else to cover those as I don't want this guide to get too complicated or overwhelming for myself to keep current and updated. Thanks to everyone who have helped and are helping to keep the guide current with your finds out there in the world. It is great to have collectors like you.
Street Price (Retail - 2017): $4.00 for Single 1/55 Vehicles, $12.00 for Three Packs, $20.00 for Five Packs, $30 for Seven Packs (Toys-R-Us Exclusive) $Varies for Eight
Pros: Great Looking, Bigger Size (1/55
vs. 1/64), All-New Molds, Better Detailing and New Replicas from the
Prototypes / Test Shots - Pre-Production Samples - Usually one-offs for the Research and Development Department which probably had thoughts for a Series 2 in the future but for now that's unknown (These have not been released to the Retail Market but found their way onto certain auction sites, etc.)
This guide should get you started on what is out there for Series 1 (2017) and I'll keep it updated as best I can. Feel free to email me your comments / questions and updates regarding this list.
