Good, evil, and the scoundrels in between are all represented in this mini-fleet. The classic Millennium Falcon™ is returning for another exciting run, alongside castings from the hit Lucasfilm series Star Wars: The Mandalorian™ on Disney+ and from the final movie in the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker™. The intimidating TIE Dagger™, a starfighter designed to strike fe
  2. By Gary Barnum Get off the highway and onto the backroads! The racers in our third and final Mystery Models mix of 2020 are daring enough to accept the challenge of any terrain. These 12 bold vehicles feature an Into the Wild deco theme. Be it mud, ice, rocks, or open fields, take your best shot with these. The handling and speed are up to you! Just remember these are Walmart exclusives before you tackle new territories. Note: Some of these cars will be gone faster than others, so be quick to collect the entire set. (Yes, we're saying not all are produced in
  3. By Allen Voivod Our Walmart Premium Sets for 2020 are inspired by notable "garages" – auto shops where you'll find the most amazing cars you've ever seen! For our second set of the year, we're getting our drive from the silver screen – specifically, the movie that kicked off the Fast & Furious franchise, The Fast and the Furious! The diorama packaging images are inspired by the neighborhood where you'd find D•T Precision Auto Shop, the name of Dominic Toretto's garage from that inaugural movie. In the set, you'll find all-metal versions of three street-racing castin
  4. By Gary Barnum Peel back the paint on a Hot Wheels car, and you’ll see more of the polished metal we like to call ZAMAC. These popular editions can be hard to find, but here’s a hint: they are Walmart exclusives. These are the last nine ZAMAC releases for 2020. They will appear in Mainline mixes K, N, and Q respectively. We all love Hot Wheels colors but — for these — we took them off, and you can take ’em home.

    Fast and Furious Mix 3: Full Force!

    By Allen Voivod If there's one awesome thing we can say about the cars from the Fast and Furious franchise – and we can say a lot of awesome things about them – it's that they never do things halfway. Wherever they're going, whatever they're doing, you can bet they're doing it Full Force! Our third mix in this year's series of premium castings features the all-metal castings and Real Riders wheels you've come to expect.

  7. By Allen Voivod In December 2019, we described the last premium Fast & Furious mix of that year as a high-concept idea: "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 was how "Fast Rewind" began, and now the saga continues with this special Amazon-exclusive box set! They come on their original blister cards, which are especially notable. See how the cars are reflected in the nighttime asphalt? The reflection
  8. By Allen Voivod Here we go! You can practically hear the classic soundtrack in your head right now, can't you?

It's our third mix of Gaming Character Cars for 2020, and even though you'll have to take your hands off the gaming controller to take control of these castings, we know you'll have tons of fun with them. You'll have to collect a few coins to get them, but we doubt you'll have to face the kinds of en

  14. By Allen Voivod Last year, the "Desert Rally" mix from our Car Culture series went off the beaten path and found all kinds of new excitement.
