Still waiting for my bin to drop. My store has like 12 cars on the pegs.

Target is also getting G case shippers with the latest Red Edition exclusives.

Been hitting toy/collector conventions here in Ontario, Canada! Been to a few Wal-Marts and they have dropped new cars.

Are there Walmart exclusive cars in this case, besides the ZAMAC cars?

The codes on the blisters are DTxxx-D9WMT which is different. Cars seem similar to G case elsewhere.

Interesting that this is the first time I've seen ZAMAC releases in my area Walmarts in a couple of years. Maybe I can thank exclusive packaging in BODs for that. The only time I ever see ZAMACs in Walmart otherwise are when I travel out of the region.

I don't believe there are any exclusive cars in the case. I found the case coding interesting as well. I know that it is for Hot Wheels Month but I don't know if that case will take place of G case.

First I have seen ZAMAC in awhile as well especially seeing these weren't the first 3 releases of the year. Never even saw scraps of the others

I know that once they are out of the blister cards you cant really tell anymore, but wouldnt the Hot Wheels Months logo make them Wal Mart exclusivies?

(There maybe a base date code diffeence between the G and MT cases - no one has reported on that as far as I know as of today, though.)

I seem to remember that the K-Mart exclusives have recently been showing up at other retail outlets eventually as well - Krogers, $ Stores, etc. And they still carry the K-Mart exclusives designation.

I'll try to look later at the basecodes and see if there is a difference.
Keep in mind that sometimes there is a run of 2 or 3 weeks when a car is made so I don't know if that theory would hold any water, but you never know.
The card art would make them "exclusives", I didn't think of that. Good point.

It just dawned on me that the Target Snowflake and Spring cards would fall in that category as well. Take them out of the blister and they wouldn't look any different than a normal carded mainline.
