10/17/2021 — Collectors have been finding the #Kroger Exclusive, 2021 Hot Wheels “N” cases for the last couple weeks at their Kroger affiliate stores here in the U.S. — for example, here in Arizona, our grocery affiliate is Fry’s Food Stores. Kroger has also offered these exclusive cases online for those collectors that don’t have a Kroger affiliate nearby.
I took my case ordering one case online. I usually don’t order by the case but since this is only a 36-count case, and you’re guaranteed the exclusives, I figured it might be best to pick one up. Initially I was worried. Since Kroger’s main warehouse is in Kentucky, collectors in that region reported uneven case packs of exclusives. That goes against the norm for these store exclusive 36-count cases as they have traditionally had two of each of the exclusives. These #Kroger Exclusive cases coincided with the October mail-in promotion for the Collector Edition: ’65 Ford Galaxie, and should have contained two of each of the following:
- ’91 GMC Syclone (HW Turbo 3/5) in YELLOW
- ’87 Buick Regal GNX (Muscle Mania 4/10) in BLACK
- Lancia Delta Integrale (Baja Blazers 6/10) in RED
- Custom ’18 Ford Mustang GT (HW Drift 4/5) in WHITE
Fortunately, my “NB” case DID have the exclusives x2. Check out the photos below to see what I pulled! Lets us know how you fared in the comments below.
