UPDATE: HW Throwback Series at Target: Old Becomes New Again!

By Gary Barnum

Eventually, old school becomes new! But we've tried to stay true to our old school with the HW Throwback series at Target. The first mix rolled out in July; the second mix pulls up now in September. 

Each mix consists of favorite Hot Wheels castings from various years. They celebrate our 50th anniversary by capturing the feeling of our legacy with looks that still catch your eye. Make sure you catch them before they become a thing of the past!

Would have been cool if the Police Mustang was a fox ssp. Saw plenty of those, but never saw a new edge cruiser.

No offence at all intended to HW personnel, but this assortment is VERY mediocre. I had 3 of them and returned all 3 to Target. They are also more than $0.99 each which is absurd for regular mainlines. Well, you guys still have 7 months left in the Calendar year. You can utilize it very effectively I mean after all, you still have tons of molds.

Would have rather seen 60's rather than 10's. But they all look great

Although available for awhile now ( I had bought a case through a dealer) it's nice to know these will be at Target soon. I think it's a nice set....those that don't like the cars well, more cars for us collectors!

Glad there's nothing I'd want (once again), no Targets close enough to make it worth the trip.

I got a set from a friend, I like most of them but some variety of the wheels would have been nice.
Who knows what cars are in the next set? I'm anxious to see them.

Went hunting for Wave 2 at Target yesterday found all but one at two stores 20+ miles out. So on the way home I stopped at the store 2 miles from my house and they had the Buick Grand National. Wave 2 set now complete.

Very nice mix of vehicles. Completed both sets a few weeks ago, hit up 2 Targets 1st thing in the morning. Was able to snag up a few extra 83's too!

Am I missing something here? The so-called "September" Mix 2 came out a couple months ago, about 2 weeks after Mix 1. These cars are now clogging pegs at Target stores all over the northeastern Illinois, southeastern Wisconsin area. Perhaps elsewhere they're just arriving? Oddly enough, Target started these out at $1.29, but once they started clogging the pegs, the price was raised to $1.49. (As a follow-up to my above post, I have since found the Silverado.)
