  1. By Allen Voivod The Hot Wheels 50th anniversary year has had its fair share of surprises already, and now we have another one for you. The Car Culture garage is expanding in 2018, with the introduction of Team Transport! Each Team Transport set features a car and a hauler to carry it, with the pair sporting matching decos. And as you’ll see from the photos, the Team Transport mixes build upon the Car Culture mixes that have already been introduced for 2018: Japan Historics 2, Cargo Carriers, and Eurospeed! Both the cars and their transporters will feature all-metal castings and Real Riders wheels – exactly the quality you’ve come to expect from the Car Culture series over the years. This first mix is expected on the pegs in early July. Look for a second mix in September, with more details to come before then!
