    Mario Kart Item Boxes at Walmart!

    By Allen Voivod If you've ever played any iteration of the fantastic Mario Kart™ racing games, you're familiar with the item boxes – in-game objects you can pick up and use to defend your kart and to attack the karts of other racers. Well, that inspired us to create our new blind box series exclusively for Walmart! The first mix of Mario Kart™ Item Boxes features seven items you might see in the game, including the coveted Shell Trophy! The other six items in this mix are each mounted on their own little karts, with the Mario Kart™ logo in front, and a Hot Wheels logo on the back. Which ones will you get? We'll keep our hands on the racing controller while we cross our fingers in hopes that you can collect them all. Note: Some of these items will be gone faster than others! Not all are produced in the same quantities — we just can’t tell you which ones… Banana (New casting!) Bob-omb (New casting!) Bullet Bill (New casting!) Goomba (New casting!)

    Fast & Furious Amazon Box Set!

    By Allen Voivod Last year, we took the standard we set for our premium Car Culture series, and applied it to cars from the adrenaline-infused Fast & Furious franchise! They all featured super detailed deco, all-metal castings, and Real Riders wheels. The blister card art was pretty impressive, too. The first mix to debut was "Fast Imports," which collected five of the fiercest speedsters from four different movies. Now, we've collected all five into an exclusive Amazon box set! They come on their original blister cards, and though all five are depicted on the sides of the box, the Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR34) takes the prize as our cover model. If you missed them before, now's your chance to get them in one fell swoop! Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR34) (2 Fast 2 Furious) Nissan Silvia (S15) (The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift) 1970 Ford Escort RS 1600 (Fast & Furious 6) Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera (Fast & Furious 6) Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR32) (Furious 7) 2020 Fast & Furious Box Set – Fast Imports Checklist: 1970 Ford Escort RS 1600 (Fast & Furious 6) Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera (Fast & Furious 6) Nissan Silvia (S15) (The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift) Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR32) (Furious 7) Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR34) (2 Fast 2 Furious) Items and dates subject to change.

    Old Glory in New Series at Walmart!

    By Gary Barnum The flag of the United States has a complex history. Did you know there have been more than 25 designs of the “Stars and Stripes” version used since it first unfurled in 1777? And did you also know historians can’t definitively credit Betsy Ross with its first design? Let’s celebrate this interesting emblem of liberty with a Hot Wheels Stars & Stripes series at Walmart! While generally credited with the design of the first Stars and Stripes flag, Betsy Ross was likely part of a small group of individuals who had input into its development. Francis Hopkinson, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, claimed credit for its initial design — and he was a naval flag designer! As for what the colors mean, it is said that red represents valor and hardiness, white represents purity and innocence, and blue represents vigilance, perseverance, and justice. Paying tribute to the Star-Spangled Banner (a term courtesy of Francis Scott Key), these Hot Wheels editions take the elements of our flag to new heights. Wave them proudly in your collection! Find them at Walmart. One last tidbit for you. Do you know where the “Old Glory” nickname came from? It was first uttered by Captain William Driver in 1831, a shipmaster out of Salem, Massachusetts.

  10. By Allen Voivod It's becoming a bit of a tradition, this Japan Historics thing! The very first Car Culture mix, in its very first year (2016), was a Japan Historics mix. Two years later, a new mix of Japan Historics was included in the line. Now, it's 2020, and it's time for Japan Historics to make another appearance in this premium series of vehicles! All five entries in Mix 2 celebrate JDM stars with authentic deco and details, all-metal castings and Real Riders wheels. And just because it's our third time around the block, that doesn't mean this mix is without surprises. We've added two brand-new castings to the line, the '68 Mazda Cosmo Sport and the '75 Datsun Sunny Truck (B120). Looks like another must-own set to us!

  12. By Gary Barnum One of the most exciting things about Hot Wheels each year is seeing all the new editions on the pegs … everything from the new castings to familiar ones we already love with new deco. The hard part is trying to decide which ones are your favorites! We’ll give your tough decision a start with our list of the 2020 Hot Wheels Mainline list. This year’s Mainline is comprised of 250 castings, and — when you add variations and more — will add as many as 400 editions to your collection! Beginning with 30 thrilling Mini Collections, you can also expect the following: 50 New Models 15 Treasure Hunts 15 Super Treasure Hunts Check out the list, and note that the Treasure Hunts are highlighted in green (you’ll have to discover the Super Treasure Hunts for yourself, though)!

  13. By Allen Voivod Mobs, mobs, and more mobs! When you play Minecraft, you may encounter some dangerous groups of creatures – and some comparatively mild ones, too. For our second mix of Gaming Character Cars for 2020, we've gone to the overworld and brought back designs inspired by hostile, neutral, and passive mobs you may encounter. New to our Minecraft Character Cars is the Ocelot, rare in the game and found in jungles. We have to warn you, though – offering our version raw cod or raw salmon won't get it to trust you, or to breed more ocelots. But that's a good thing, right? No smelly fish mess, no wild kittens running around, and no sweaty jungle to endure – just awesome castings to remind you why Minecraft is one of the best-selling video games of all time!

    Star Wars 2020 Starships Mix 2!

    By Allen Voivod Sometimes, the second installment in a Star Wars™ trilogy can have a darker tone. And for the second mix of our 2020 Star Wars™ Starships series, we're leaning toward the dark side, with four of the six castings representing bad guys from the blockbuster franchise. In this next mix, you'll find castings that span the saga. The Super Star Destroyer™, a brand-new Starships casting for 2020, is back for a second appearance. And joining the ranks of our Starships for the very first time is Darth Maul's Speeder™, the one he rode in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace on Tatooine™. (Darth Maul™ is molded into the casting, too!) In Star Wars™, there's always a push for balance, so we've sent the heroic Millennium Falcon™ and awesome B-wing Fighter™ flying into this mix for the Rebel Alliance. These additions will make even the most cynical of space smugglers say, "I've got a good feeling about this..." B-wing Fighter™ Darth Maul's Speeder™ (New casting!)

    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!

  24. 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.

  25. 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!
