02/08/2018 — After seeing my local counts for the 100 Years of Chevrolet Trucks Series go up by 72 yesterday, I decided to do some late-night pallet searching in hopes of bringing home this new Hot Wheels series. Much to my dismay, I was unsuccessful in finding the 72 ct. cases I had thought these were in. That was, until today, when I went back to one of the Walmart locations that had the uptick in stock. As I round the corner, I see this brand-new display that wasn’t there last night — well, I don’t think it was. It is surely an unconventional display as you usually don’t see whole endcaps dedicated to Hot Wheels at Walmart, so this may be a new thing for all you who hate those Hot Wheels Themed Assortment dump bins. Anyways, I netted all eight trucks from this display which also had track sets (front) and 5-Packs (left side), and of course left plenty behind for my fellow Phoenix-area collectors.
