7/16/2019 — About a month ago, Walmarts around the United States started getting in “flat” 72 ct. cases of the ’79 Ford F-150 “Sam Walton” Truck. Collectors that were first-to-find grabbed these by the case as its not often you find 94¢ #Real Riders these days unless we are talking about Super Treasure Hunts — which most would not leave behind either. This isn’t the first time that Walmart has sold the Sam Walton truck as it was a 100% Hot Wheels “black box” car in 1999, and more recently came in the HW Jukebox series — very similar to this one — in 2013. Alas, this ’79 Ford F-150 is back at Walmart. If you haven’t been so fortunate to score one of these yet, try sparkshop.com — the Walmart Museum’s online shop — as they have them for $1.89 (+ shipping). It may not be the same as finding them for 94¢ in-store, but its still a reasonable price to pay for one. I splurged for one and it came today… well wrapped, might I add. Thanks, sparkshop.com! It definitely brought “a little spark to [my] day”.
UPDATED 7/18/2019 — It appears Spark Shop has pulled the listing after being inundated with hundreds (if not thousands) of orders. Since this article went live two days ago, stock had dropped over 6,000 units per the site’s inventory number.
