9/21/2018 — After noticing collectors finding the latest wave of Hot Wheels #Car Culture / Team Transport yesterday, I decided to hit up my local Walmart to see if I could catch it. Much to my dismay, there wasn’t even a peg for the series. I had turned away, ready to leave when I ultimately, decided to glance down at the track sets. Woah! There they were!
It appears some Walmart store aren’t even pegging these 2-Packs. Rather, they have dedicated shelf space for them. So be warned. If you like to dip in and out of stores like I do, stop for a moment as these may be sitting on the shelf right in front of you!

First @hotwheelsofficial #teamtransport I’ve found at retail. Super pumped to get #snakeandmongoose and the #momo #porsche962. Also grabbed the GReddy Sakura Sprinter since I didn’t have that one. #hotwheels #hotwheelsfinds #hotwheelshunter #hotwheelshunters #hotwheelshunting #hotwheelspics #hotwheelscarculture #hotwheelsphoto #hotwheelshauler #orangetrackdiecast
I’ve always loved #Snake & Mongoose Hot Wheels releases so I was determined to find these. After striking out on the first wave — yeah, haven’t even seen one on the pegs yet — I knew my best chance to catch this wave was to strike when these started to show up. Needless to say, I was a very pleased to be in the right place at the right time tonight. I even picked up the 4th set which was the lone carryover from the first wave: GReddy Nissan Laurel / Sakura Sprinter.
So if you’re like me and you have to have these, check your local Walmarts as they are getting these in, in addition to the second wave of #HW 50th Favorites. Also, showing up: Car Culture / Circuit Legends! Its going to be an expensive end of the month with all these awesome series hitting. Stay tuned, and happy hunting!
