  2. By Allen Voivod Muscle cars and rockin' beats – that's music to our ears! It's also a formula for success in the Fast and Furious franchise, and we're celebrating both with the second 2020 mix of this series: Motor City Muscle, sporting some of Detroit's greatest hits! And two of them are new castings: the '87 Buick® Grand National™ GNX and the Ford F-150 SVT Lightning. This high-octane series of premium castings features all-metal castings and Real Riders wheels. And as with the previous mix in the 2020 series, the blister cards each give you a taste of a location from the movie in which the car appeared. Can you guess them all before you make it down to the checklist? We'll give you a hint – four total movies are represented by the five cars in this mix.

  6. By Allen Voivod Welcome to a new year of Car Culture from Hot Wheels! Our first mix of the year, Door Slammers, features racers like the ones you might have seen in Trans-Am events from back in the early 1970s. All five entries in this mix hug the turns with authentic deco and details. They looked highly customized, but the all-metal castings and Real Riders wheels always come standard on Car Culture castings. And the artwork on the blister cards is exactly that – art! The scenes depicted on each tie together to form a picture of one historic race to the finish! ’71 Porsche 911 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA ’71 Datsun 510 BMW 2002 ’70 Ford Escort RS1600 (Click here for more images!) 2020 Car Culture Mix 1 – Door Slammers Checklist: ’70 Ford Escort RS1600 ’71 Datsun 510 ’71 Porsche 911 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA BMW 2002 Items and dates subject to change.

  7. 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!

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.

  9. 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!

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.

  25. 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. But in 1959, a hydraulic system was developed so riders could raise or lower their cars and beat the law. 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. It rests in a felt-lined blister frame within a decorative outer box. Specs: Features: Switch to raise or lower truck suspension Body Color: Spectraflame root beer Deco: Authentic manufacturer logos Body Type: ZAMAC Wheels: Real Riders 5-spoke wheels Base: Full-metal, matte-black-painted chassis Window Color: Medium smoke-tinted Interior Color: Brown Packaging: Felt-lined blister frame in decorative outer box Each vehicle features an individually numbered sticker (xxx/12,500) Availability: Available Only to 2019 RLC Members (until item is sold out): 1/21/20 at 9 a.m. PT Pricing and Purchase Limits: Priced at $24.99 plus shipping and processing each; extra charges may apply for express shipping or special handling (customers shipping to Canada may be required to pay additional shipping charges or taxes) We do offer international shipping to other countries – please see shipping costs and details here (international shipping availability subject to change) Limit of ONE (1) per 2019 RLC Membership (if quantities remain, limits may be increased or lifted at our sole discretion) Refunds only, no exchanges Production cars may vary from the photos shown.
