I searched the threads and didn't see any similar posts.
Forgive me if this is a duplicate thread.
But tonight I found the 2012 Halloween Hot Wheels at a nearby Kroger store:











I don't know if Target is going to do their annual Halloween 5-Pack.
I've noticed Target stores putting out their Halloween stuff, but I haven't spotted any Hot Wheels yet.

I really like the Hyper Mite as a Jack-O'-Lantern. The purple '66 Batmobile also looks kewl. Dunno about the Ecto-1; if they're not going to put the Ghostbusters logo on it so far as I can tell, why not just take off the rooftop equipment and market it as a '59 Cadillac Ambulance and not have to pay licensing fees to Sony/Columbia?

I never see the Holiday cars in Canada, excluding specialty stores in Toronto.

Being in CT, I'll probably have to revert to the secondary market since these are Kroger exclusives. No Krogers in New England.....:(

Target is doing the 5 pack. The only problem is that they are doing it just like they did for the Valentine Cars from this year. They have standard mainlines in them, no special paint theme, the only thing related to Haloween is the package of the 5 pack.

Yeah, I finally saw a pic of the Target Halloween set and I was disappointed they're not doing repaints of these single-carded cars. They've always done it in the past. Oh well, I'm glad I got these.

I'm guessing that Target doesn't want to pay any extra money to have seasonal themed cars any more.
That is a shame because I always liked the idea of either a different line up of cars for the same season like the Halloween cars from 08 or the same cars but different colors like the Valentine cars from 09.
I know they are for kids but I'm sure Mattel knows that collectors would want them as well.

Talked with the manager at my local Kroger today.....these arrived, of all times, last week while I was out of town on vacation. They lasted all of a day and a half and I was informed that this would be the only shipment they receive of them. I guess I'm SOL.....and I'm almost willing to bet I can find them at the flea market from my local scalper.....

Nothing to get too excited about. I guess the orange Skull Crusher is my favorite of the bunch. The Kroger set is MUCH better, in my opinion.

OIC. I couldn't tell from the earlier photos that it was the Sedgewick Hotel Ghost a.k.a. "Slimer" on the hood of the Ecto-1. Now I see the point of putting out a new variant of the ECTO-1 without the Ghostbusters logo.

Damn, I wish there were Kroger supermarkets in Canada.
