Sometimes it is about the exclusives, sometimes the Super, and sometimes the mail-in. File this one under “Mail-in”.
Kmart Collectors Day is this Saturday, February 18th, so hopefully you are making plans to attend. If you can’t, or there is not a store close, or just want a case to open yourself, the 2/18 cases are now available for purchase at Kmart.com.
There are four exclusives and two first-to-market, and in case you haven’t noticed they are all pretty nice. I will count the Ford pickup as my favorite.
This is an F Case assortment, so if you are lucky enough to pull a Super Treasure Hunt, it will be the Acura NSX in gold, so there is that too.
But from what I have seen most of the excitement is about the special mail-in exclusive the Datsun Bluebird 510.
I have a preview of this beauty coming in a bit, and it is worth getting, so know you can use the receipt from your online case purchase – plus 20 card backs from the case – to redeem the offer. The form is right on the sales page or at hotwheelscollectors.com. Find a way to buy four more cars at a nearby Kmart and you can get a second Datsun.
Nonetheless, have at it. Buzz for the 510 has been strong, and I have heard rumblings that many collectors plan on getting their hoard on for this one, so cases might go quickly. I ordered mine, and even got free shipping with Kmart membership. Not bad…
