Here is the breakdown on the "Hot Wheel 5" 5 Packs from TRU:
All cars have a "Born On" date code on the bases. (Reading the date codes is easy. Example-2816AZ...The first 3 numbers are the day of the year and the last number is the year it was made which would be the 281st day of 2006. The last 2 letters are the country of origin code. In this case, the "AZ" code stands for China. Anything ending in "EA" is also made in China.)
