2021 Flying Customs Mix 1 at Target

By Gary Barnum

The flashy Flying Colors series appeared from Hot Wheels way back in 1974. At the time, the deco mirrored the style of the day. In 2013, we got nostalgic and paid homage to that series and those old-school style with Flying Customs! Last year, we restored the series from 2013 for you. Ready to fly again?

Here’s the first mix from 2021 of Target exclusives. Relive the glory days in glorious color!

Good looking set.  Rich colors and I dig the old school striping!  I also like the clean looking card, it really makes them pop!

I'll be checking them out for sure!

Thanks

I like them, but i dont really understand why half of them have modern wheels....kinda kills it for me imo.

That's a nice set!  I will be tracking these down.  I too wish they all had throwback wheels, but other than that, I have no complaints.

Those new flying customs cars are all awesome. 👍I will be on the hunt for all of those and I can't wait to add all of those to my hotwheels collection. 👍

Unlike previous mixes, I look forward to adding each of these to my collection. Wonder which one I'll have trouble finding?

I'm with KOMPRESSOR, why all the 5 spokes, these should all have been done with basic wheels, hot ones or ultra hots.

The Custom Mustang & Beetle card art show Hot Ones wheels, perhaps a wheel variation to look out for?

Great set! Gotta have it. No bandwagon Japanese cars, so I should be able to complete the set (sad to say).

My chief complaint as well. The other being thst I didn’t see these once in 2020. Not sure of COVID-19 is the reason or Target just didn’t order them more than once. But yeah...the modern mainline rims on half of them (the Firebird would be so much better with BW style) ruins the series for me.

The flying customs are a nice set. Target seems to do these themed sets in 2 year increments;

-2016/17 Retro Series (with the light blue 80's blue card)

-2018/19 Throwback (with the orange card)

-2020/21 Flying Customs (with the white card)

What's next, a new installment of Hot Ones? Mid-late 80's Speed Fleet? Early 1990's Solid blue card Set?

 

Been a while since the last 50 states set (this would take 3 years to produce at the current rate of 2 (8-9 car [state] mixes per year).

Nice set, though I've only been able to get a couple from the 2020 series, all the local Targets keep getting the Decades cars, so I missed out on quite a few of the 2020 Flying colors that I wanted to grab.

Definitely some nice ones in this set! Though it's weird on the wheel selection on a few..... Will be grabbing the Mustangs for sure.

I like the old school wheels and theme but it is disappointing so many have unrealistic blue windows. Too many cars with raked stances too. So ultimately I dont think I'll buy any.

I wonder if my store will see them at all. They keep restocking last years retro. Only seen the second mix of the 2020 Flying Customs once.

I am always looking forward to finding Flying Customs. There are four Target stores near me, and I visit all of them in search of Hot Wheels worthy of my Great Find episodes. It does pay off to be persistent in searching for them. See my result on below:
