Colorful Nostalgia: 2020 Flying Customs at Target

By Gary Barnum

 

Hot Wheels caught the eyes of collectors in a new, colorful way in the mid-1970s — with the “Flying Colors” releases. With a nostalgic eye, we present the 2020 Flying Customs! These editions recall the spirit of another time and place.

 

Transformed with retro deco, each of these eight castings becomes like comfort food to the collector. Each blister card features classic representational art of the vehicle within. Take a trip to your local Target, or these will be gone like the past. (And watch for a second mix later this year, too!)

Are these Target exclusives?

We're in March, not February.

They sould of skip the Audacious and put in a another manufacture car or made them half fantasy half regular cars. Still a nice set that I'll be keeping an eye out for.

Well.. maybe we might see this line before the end of March, if not the start of April.

The other gripe (and this one's bigger), and this is Target specific, is that when the 2nd mix does come out...

they'll keep stocking mix 1 OVER & OVER & OVER! 

It seems every time a Target Exclusive line debuts.. they'll keep running the first mix until it's so stale, but they NEVER run the 2nd mix ON TIME or sometimes.. not much at all!

Get your crap together Target!

I'm hoping these will show up in Canada somehow since we don't have Targets here. I do remember previous Flying Customs showing up at Toys R Us years ago.

Found the Nova yesterday. The green metallic paint is absolutely stunning in person and sets off the deco perfectly. True eye candy.

The TARGET 50th 10 Pack was available online at Hudsons Bay..........who would have thought!

Canadian Tire had the 5 car set that had the later mix with the 3 Mustangs, Delorean etc same year as the 10 pack.

These were Marketed as TARGET Only.

Couple of years Prior to that Great Canadian Super Store had the mix with the White Mustang Funny Car..........so you never know.

Saw these at Target and almost bought a set, then I looked up and saw the Japanese 3 series and grabbed those instead.

Target came and left Canada pretty quickly. I wish Zellers would come back. I would love to have a set and a few doubles.
