I don’t photograph every batch of Hot Wheels Walmart Exclusive Zamacs, but this latest one I did. I even did a video on them (and others):
It is a Zamac assortment that definitely deserves it. To me, it is the epitome of why I love the Zamacs. I collect them for two main reasons. The first reason is easy: Because they just look really good.
Unpainted models are not cool just because they are unpainted. The raw look works, but these models would look just unfinished without anything else. That is why raw (and with a finishing coat) with deco makes these look finished. And some decos just look better than others. The black and grey flames on the ’32 Ford make that one of the best looking Zamacs Hot Wheels has done. Same goes for the Porsche.
The other reason I collect them is that the Zamacs give me a nice cross section of the Hot Wheels castings being used at the moment. Surely some of my favorite castings are used, but there are many that I don’t collect, and keeping the Zamacs mean I have at least one. The ’32 Ford is once again a great example. I don’t have any in my collection, until now.
I am now up-to-date on the Walmart Zamacs from 2013 on. This trio is one of their best releases.
