Mattel Hot Wheels Glow Racers Lindster Prototype Die-Cast Metal VehicleWhile not necessarily awesome in and of itself, the Glow Racers Lindster Prototype had some chrome and some glow and for a buck, I said "OK, gimme one." In 2020 the car came with clear red or clear green parts, and in 2021 the mold came back with some nice glow wheels and a glow chassis. Good enough for me!

The tooling is the same, but the glow version has an entirely new pattern printed on the glow plastic.

The glow plastic is pretty fantastic, as is the norm for Mattel's cars. There's a fair amount of it with chrome helping to highlight it even more. It's bright, it's shiny, it's good.

What's less good are the characteristics of glow plastic and painted detail - it's easily absorbed. The orange and red printing on the car is surprisingly ornate but difficult to see the halftone dots and various words, particularly the orange ones. If you shine a UV black light on the car, everything pops wonderfully and it's much easier to read or see the graphic design work they put into this. It's nothing too fancy, but I do like seeing a glow toy that sings nicely under the UV lights. What's more, there's more chrome in the interior under the clear red windshield which also pops a little bit, even in low-light conditions. Vac-metal plastic and glow plastic are frequently excellent choices for low-light situations, because glow will shine light back at you and the chrome will reflect any tiny amount of light in the room back. Since this does both, I assume it may make it harder to step on.

As of my writing this there are five Glow Racers for 2021 - the blue Warp Speeder, the green Hi-Roller, the pink and clear Cloak and Dagger, plus the Duck and Roll - the latter of which I'd like to pick up at some point. The Lindster Prototype isn't anything particularly remarkable on its own, but it's a nice futuristic car that is a lot of fun to play with if you've got various flashlights and other bright shining things at your disposal. It's a buck, and worth the asking price to add to your glowing toy motorpool. Mine also rolls particularly nicely, so it's fun.
