List of Hot Wheels 2018 Mail-In Promotions (UPDATED 8/15)

02/01/2018 — Hot Wheels is once again partnering with the big box retailers to offer promotional vehicles for buying cars at retail. So far, Walmart and Kmart (yes, there are still a few Kmarts that exist) have been announced as promotional partners for 2018 mail-ins, and there remains a likely chance we will see one from Toys R Us as well.

    • Hey Jim! It hasn’t started yet. Going off of last year’s schedule.. the Walmart promo should start somewhere around the first week of April.

    • I’ve heard that it may not happen. Not sure yet on the reasoning, but if that is the case, they will be distributed/sold another way since they are already produced.

    • Nope, however, the “Walmart Mail-In” ’70 Blazer is showing up as a promo internationally and in the vending machine at the Hot Wheels Legends (Car Show) events.

  1. Any news on that illusive Walmart blazer? Did we miss it? I know things got wacky with the loss of TRU and Kdays…..any info would be greatly appreciated.
    TIA

    • No new news on the Walmart Blazer. Last I heard, theres a good chance they aren’t doing the promotion. With that said, they will be offered another way. I have seen them appear in stores in Asia, and they have had them in the Vending Machine at the Legends Tour. But thats it for now.

  2. Has there been any other word on the next main in? They seem to be running slow this year with only 2 realeased and 1/2 way through the year already….

    • Not right now, unfortunately.

      I actually have one coming from a friend whose brother traveled to the Philippines and brought a couple Blazers and Chevelles back. Apparently they sell them at retail there. I have also seen other countries where they offer them as an in-store promo item (ie. buy x, get it free).
