Rare and Bare: 2020 ZAMAC Editions at Walmart

By Gary Barnum

 

Our rare “naked” Hot Wheels releases – the popular ZAMAC editions – return for 2020 with some exciting vehicles. They’ll be showing off at your local Walmart stores beginning with Mix E in February.

 

Stripped of paint, polished to a shine, these editions have become collector legends. They’re sure to stand out in your collection! Here we expose the first nine releases of the year; there will be nine more for us to reveal at a later date.

They would have a hard time topping the flamed 50th ones.

I agree, another set I'll never see. I think I found 2 zamacs last year. It is a nice looking set though.

They look great. 

 

No chance of finding a single at Walmart. Employees thin out the boxes before they get the shelves and most multipacks get ripped open right on the shelves. 

 

The hunt is what I love the most.

Good luck.

I got all the zamacs last year. And I will be on the hunt for all the zamacs this year and I can't wait to add all of those to my hotwheels collection. 👍

Zamac distribution is TERRIBLE around here. Will be lucky to find a quarter of them. The cases and bins we get just don't have them in it.

Can Mattel tell us why they don't appear in Canada anymore?

 

Is that on purpose? Do they not make them on international cards anymore?

Just more ZAMACs that will never see the light of day at my local Walmarts.  I've found numerous hunts but never a ZAMAC.

How about offering these Zamac sets through the Red Line Club. No one gets them but Walmart employees.

Do these ever make it out of the stockroom? I'm so tired of seeing cases from the stockroom at WM opened on the bottom and top when they come out.

I've been collecting 10 years now and it's unbelievable the amount of Walmart & Target employees that are skimming cases or setting hunts aside for later. One store was hiding the zamacs in generic boxes and putting everything they didn't want on the pegs. I always encourage other collectors to call the manager of their local store and if that doesn't work get the general manager and tell him whats up. Even if it goes nowhere you've started a paper trail and paper trails eventually change things.

Same problem around my area. I always find the case in between the zamacs in bins.

I've been going to the same stores everyday for years. I clean up the area. Ask people how they are doing. Employees ask me what I'm looking for when they see I don't buy nothing for a while. I let them know and in a little while I have fresh case of whatever waiting for me when I go in. They always take care of me. Walmart target or dollar store.

Zamacs commonly come in bins. Problem with bins are they are usually one-and-done by case mix. Takes a small handful of people to go through a bin and have mostly generic castings left. If zamac cases were stocked 1 or 2 at a time more people might get their hands on them.

Some zamacs have been found in 9 packs, but not very common, it would be nice if they put them in those more often, good way to move 9 packs.

Sure was great to see them while they lasted.

Posed a similar why not in Canada question once and was advised that it was due in part to a different distribution system for the Canadian market.

Not the answer I was looking for either..................

I've found 3 Zamac's today, all from 2019 but cool just as well. I love these 2020's, I'm really impressed with what Hotwheels comes up with.  Happy Collecting everyone..
