    Hot Wheels 2020 Team Transport Mix 1!

    By Allen Voivod A third year of Team Transport mixes – an extension of the collector-beloved Car Culture series – is already hauling some remarkable racers to the pegs this year! Represented in 2020's Team Transport Mix 1? Muscle from the '70s, endurance from the '90s, and tuners from the '10s. As with previous entries in these perfectly paired mixes, the cars and their transporters feature coordinated decos and premium detailing, with all-metal castings and Real Riders wheels. And the three car castings you see here aren't commonly produced ones by us, so you won’t want to miss them this time around! Mazda 787B / Sakura Sprinter RWB Porsche 930 / Aero Lift '70 Plymouth Superbird / Wide Open (Click here for more images!) 2020 Team Transport Mix 1 Checklist: '70 Plymouth Superbird / Wide Open Mazda 787B / Sakura Sprinter RWB Porsche 930 / Aero Lift Items and dates subject to change.

  2. By Gary Barnum The first mass-produced cars in America began to roll out of Detroit right about the turn of the century (1900, not 2000). But it appears the automobile production really accelerated in the mid-century with heavy-duty steel vehicles. Today, estimates put the number of cars produced in Michigan close to two million! We pay homage to some of the many classics with our American Steel series at Walmart. These editions really highlight some of the muscle behind American Steel, and it seems like everyone has a favorite or, most likely, favorites. If you’re strong enough, you can pull these favorites out of your local Walmart beginning in December.

  3. By Allen Voivod Very few people ever get to set foot inside the Nissan DNA Garage in Zama, a city in the Kanagawa Prefecture of Japan. For the launch of our Hot Wheels 2020 Walmart Premium Sets, we're giving you the feel of it with our first mix, "Nissan Garage" – featuring our own Aero Lift and three iconic castings from the innovative automaker! The diorama packaging images are inspired by the inside of the Nissan DNA Garage itself, and the deco on the Datsun 510 Wagon is inspired by Hot Wheels designer Jun Imai's own 1:1 version of the car. We wouldn't be surprised if you wanted to get two of each, so you can open one and display the other. Which means you should probably get to your local Walmart at least as fast as the real-life versions of these castings can go!

  4. 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!)

  7. By Gary Barnum Get ready to rock & roll! Our Pop Culture series will ramble on into 2020 with the first mix dedicated to Led Zeppelin, among the greatest rock bands of all time. The near-mythical band released its first album 50 years ago (yes, just the year after Hot Wheels debuted). They followed with a string of hit records that showcased their talent and versatility and made them one of the most successful rock acts of all time. These editions pay tribute to the covers of their first four albums, plus the iconic Swan Song logo which became their label. Our premium Pop Culture series vehicles feature top-notch deco, Real Riders wheels, and die-cast/die-cast construction. If you listen for them rocking in stores now, finding them might not be as hard, hard, hard as it seems.

  18. By Gary Barnum Customizers started lowering their cars and trucks as early as the late ’40s by using sandbags in their trunks, cutting their spring coils, etc. By the late ’50s, the practice was outlawed.

Our RLC Exclusive 1969 Chevy® C-10 pays tribute to the lowrider—with a new Hot Wheels feature allowing you to raise or lower it! SOLD OUT With a twist of the switch on the C-10’s chassis, you can raise the car to “Street” mode, or lower it to “Slam’d” mode. You can run it “low and slow,” or you can run it raised. Take a little trip and see… Make sure you’re not too slow when this edition is offered at HWC on 1/21/20. Besides the new special feature, this release sports a Spectraflame root beer finish, cream side and rear panels, and Real Riders 5-spoke wheels.

    Fast & Furious Mix 5 Rewinds Time!

    By Allen Voivod Our last Fast & Furious Premium Assortment mix for 2019 is a bit of a high-concept idea. It started like this: What if we took some of the freewheeling cars you know from the global blockbuster franchise, looked at previous generations of those cars, and made them look like their modern-day movie counterparts? That's how you get "Fast Rewind," the fifth and final mix of the year! All-metal castings and Real Riders wheels come standard, as does the level of detail any car aficionado would deeply appreciate. As for the extras, look carefully at the blister cards. You'll see each of the five racing against the backdrop of a nighttime cityscape. But if you look at each one's reflection in the asphalt, you'll see the newer-generation version of the car that appears onscreen!
