Happy to have these.
The Walmart Zamacs are a little more exclusive than maybe we think. Of course they are only exclusive to Walmart. But even then, many Walmarts get the batch that is supposed to contain the Zamacs, but they aren’t there. We have already seen many people reporting N case Walmart finds, but with no Zamacs at all.
That has happened to us before. The final batch of last year’s Zamacs never hit stores around here, and only one store got the batch containing the AE86 Corolla and Special Edition Camaro. We aren’t complaining, because it is nice when the Zamacs are a little hard to get.
But it does make us nervous when we are anticipating a Zamac batch as much as Batch N. Of course that is no secret. There is a Skyline, and that is all that has to be said. But the Chevelle is a casting I am VERY fond of, and the Mustang is also a real looker.
Well, we are good, as I found the batch today, and all three Zamacs were there, along with a handful of green Kenmeri’s. All is well here, and we hope all of you out there who hope to find them are successful as well.
Not much else to say about these, other than posting the pics. We love the Zamacs, and hope they return to Walmart in 2015. There is an enormous list of models we would love to see get the Zamac treatment, just like the Hako, a casting that gets to really show off its details in unpainted form.

Nice- found the Chevelle Wagon, Chevy pickup, & Continental awhile back, the latter of which seemed to be everywhere for a week or so…
There's a zamac Hoku w/ roll cage on ebay. Very high BIN, but at least a heads up that these are out there. http://www.ebay.com/itm/271563937719?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Hey stew, we linked that last night wondering if it was legit, then a few people reported finding them last night. Hope to get one or ten…
I like the Zamac for 2 reasons. First they make customizing way easier without having to strip them.
But more so because they show off the details of a casting. To make the models durable they have such a thick coat of paint it soften the details of the models. Look at the front and tail lights of the models.
Ah! found these today- got the Skyline & the Mustang 🙂
I want to find these. Have found bins. Noticed that hunts are very few and far in between. And the zamacs are no where to be found. Gonna have to travel to find them. Michael
So far this year I've have only found the first three Zamacs of this years series in the store and I only found two sets from last years series.
I have the set of 4 Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-X Black and zamac, With and without rollcage
why does the skyline look oxidized?
