The 50th Anniversary Celebration of Mattel‘s iconic Hot Wheels collection continues, and today comes news that Knockaround and Hot Wheels have teamed-up for some limited edition sunglasses. Yes, I just bought a pair. I’ve been a fan of Knockaround’s Fort Knocks shades for awhile, particularly some of their limited edition collaborations, so this is right in my wheelhouse. The Rodger Dodger Fort Knocks feature a nitrous blue frame with a hot-rod red interior on the front, and classic speedster flames running down both arms. Reminiscent of the blown engine popping out of the hood, they sport polarized silver chrome lenses that provide full UV400 sun protection. One of the coolest features? They come packaged on a card that’s made to look like a Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary diecast package!

Rodger Dodger is a Hot Wheels car that we have several versions of here at Rock Father HQ. Designed by Larry Wood and originally released as part of Hot Wheels’ 1974 Flying Colors line, the Rodger Dodger was based on a 1973 Dodge Charger and was offered through the late 70s. In 2001, Mattel brought it back, and variations have been offered nearly every year since.

Rodger Dodger Fort Knocks: Designed on the durable and high-quality Fort Knocks frame, these sunglasses have a slightly wider fit than other Knockaround frame styles. Every pair of Rodger Dodger Fort Knocks comes with a custom microfiber pouch all encased in one-of-a-kind, Hot Wheels 50th anniversary commemorative packaging—just like the hundreds of 1:64 die-cast toy cars you’ve been buying over the past 5 decades!
