    2019 Hot Wheels Legends Tour Hits the Road!

    By Gary Barnum The Hot Wheels Legends Tour, a nationwide traveling car show, launched in 2018 in partnership with Walmart, was a full-throttle success! Hot Wheels will be on the road again in 2019, and we’re looking for another mind-blowing 1:1 custom car worthy of being one of our world-renowned die-cast editions! At each stop, fans will show off their unique custom builds to a panel of judges, which consists of members of the Hot Wheels design team, automotive experts and promoters, and Walmart Store Managers. Based on the criteria of authenticity, creativity, and garage spirit, these judges will select one finalist. At the end of the tour, one finalist from each of the 18 stops will win a trip to the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, where their custom creations will be judged side-by-side to determine which one will become a Hot Wheels 1:64 casting. Between stops, Hot Wheels will keep the fun rolling with a custom “vending machine + play” truck. They will appear at over 75 additional Walmart stores so fans of all ages have a chance to get their hands on their own Hot Wheels toys and exclusive merchandise. Will there be Collector Edition Legends Tour releases? Yes! Two, in fact: Dairy Delivery Chevy® Silverado™ Off-Road These two items will be some of the exciting merchandise in the vending machine, so you may receive other items. Note that, in order to get a pull at the vending machine, you will be required to spend $20 (before tax) on any mix of Hot Wheels, Mechanix, Dickies, and/or Mobil 1. Outside of the vending machine, another special Hot Wheels edition will be available to buy for $20. Watch for the beautiful Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary limited edition ’71 Datsun Bluebird 510 Wagon in green. This will only be available at the vending truck! ’71 Datsun Bluebird 510 Wagon Visit Walmart.com/hotwheelslegends and Hot Wheels Instagram for where the vending truck is going to be next!

  10. By Allen Voivod In mining, “pay dirt” refers to earth that may contain the kind of ore, gems, and precious metals to make your life rich beyond your wildest dreams.

Our Walmart Auto Series hearkens back to those heady days with Off Road Trucks, the third mix in this 2019 series. Each of the six castings in this set features race-inspired decos, and card backs that show each of these beasts grabbing big air as they ride the desert’s idea of waves.
