At Walmart (at least one store)


Recommended Posts

Hit my local Wally World last Monday night, almost a full display of kits, all of what’s been mentioned so far. Stopped again today, display almost empty……, but did grab a pro street chevelle for $15 and the garage lift for $20

The "car aisle" of my Walmart was almost COMPLETELY empty today! Empty shelves! Empty wall hooks! No Hot Wheels! No Hot Wheels sets! No diecasts! No Tonkas or RC cars! It looked like it had been hit by Toy Car Locusts! :blink:

Same here, and they never did get any models.

Yes. What's up with the die cast cars? Are they being sold on Facebook marketplace or eBay? I've never seen tat isle so bare. And for months.

Mine used to always have maybe 2-3 dozen diecasts on the shelf--Welly, M2 and Jada--and I probably bought one every two months or so. When covid started, the diecasts got scarcer and scarcer. You'd be lucky to see 2 or 3 new ones a month, most of those just color variations of stuff I already had. I don't think I bought a single diecast there in 2021. I think I bought a total of 8 diecasts at Rite-Aid or the local toy show this year, and then got 3 new ones last week from diecastmodelswholesale.com.

New Hudson, Mi store has successfully sold out of their Round-two stock . Just 4 kits left- 1 wacky racer, 2 star trek and 1 pinto popper .Walmart  Novi, Mi store still had a full end-cap of coke reissues  in the toy section as of yesterday at  reg-full price!

I've yet to see a display in walmart too.  Crazy at some of the kits on the display how cheap they are when i paid $30+ for some of them.  My local hobbytown store sells the coca cola kits for $38 no lie.
