New “Hot Wheels Boulevard” Series: Good Things Emerge from the “Bin of Death”!

Dec 11, 2011 5 Comments by

Mattel has just released the all new Hot Wheels Boulevard Series, featuring an all metal body and chassis with Real Riders tires. Included in the 7 car set are: A-OK, Fangula, Tucker Torpedo, `52 Hudson Hornet, Classic Packard, Chevy “Camaro” Concept and the Ford GTX1.
They are selling for around $3.50 each, depending on where you find them. I found these in the “Bin of Death” at my local Walmart along with the Main-Line cars. The sign said $1.07, and that’s just what I got them for, once I got the front-end manager to go look in the bin where there were many more!
It’s always good to pay attention to signs….

    Hi Andrea,
    Thanx for stopping by.
    What you have there is just a packaging error. It is not rare or valuable.
