Retail Now: Replica Entertainment FORZA MOTORSPORT series hitting at Walgreens

10/2/2018 — Thanks to a local Phoenix-area collector — @diecastsrus on Instagram — I was alerted to the fact that Walgreens had gotten in the newest wave of Replica Entertainment vehicles: FORZA Motorsport. Yes, this is the wave with the brand-new Nissan Silvia S15 and four other favorites like the Morris Mini, AMC Rebel Machine, BMW 2002 and the Lamborghini Huracán. My local Walgreens had pegged the whole case of 10 which I didn’t even think was possible, but sure enough, I walked away with a set… and made sure to leave the 2nd set behind for the next person — fighting every urge to grab another Silvia and Mini. I will get duplicates of those in time. So, get out and hunt Hot Wheels collectors… happy hunting!

  1. Well, that’s good news, but by the time it hits the east coast.. probably be about November! Seems whenever someone reports something around the west, we won’t see for maybe about 6-8 weeks.
    I’ll keep searching though!

    • These came in to my local Walmart in the Chicagoland area tonight so they shouldn’t be far from the East coast 😂

      • Well.. we’ll see. Thinking December at this point. Heck, might go out on a limb and say start of January.

    • Makes me wonder.. do shipments head towards the west coast for delivery and are distributed by truck and train towards the east coast? It just seems as though someone reports on a new prospect and it’s pinpointed somewhere west. Being on the eastern seaboard, we won’t see the stuff for a while from that time!
