Hot Wheels Boulevard is the premium series all about dream cars you’d drool over and wish for a chance to drive if you saw them on the street. As premium releases, the editions in this series feature full-diecast construction, Real Riders wheels, and classically executed deco that will rev your engines. When you spot them, you’ll recognize some high-profile liveries, too! Unfortunately (for online shops like Geek Slop), the series is exclusive to Walmart.

Mix 1:

The Volkswagen Deluxe Station Wagon marks Mattel’s first collaboration with SE Bikes. It’s inspired by the custom 1:1 version, owned by Damon Dayton, SE Bike collector and Volkswagen restorationist. Speaking of Volkswagens, the Drag Bus—arguably the most popular casting ever—throws its weight into this mix. Catch your collection up by adding the Acura, with graphics inspired by their race car, and the Baja Bouncer in our HW Race Team deco. The Nissan Laurel, that popular JDM model known for a wide rear, completes this miraculous motorcade.

Hot Wheels Boulevard Mix 1 Checklist:

  • Acura NSX GT3
  • Volkswagen Drag Bus
  • Baja Bouncer™
  • Volkswagen Deluxe Station Wagon
  • Nissan Laurel 2000 SGX

First up, check out the first edition with the Hot Wheels casting debut of the ’67 Austin Mini Pickup in this mix. The ’75 Datsun Sunny Truck (B120) makes its third appearance, this time sporting the ultra-popular BRE racing livery. The Volvo P220 Amazon Estate makes its second showing since debuting last year; the low wagon sports cream yellow for this outing. Next, this edition of the Land Rover Defender 90 is based on the real car of the Hot Wheels casting’s designer, Dima Shakhmatov. Finally, the Lykan Hypersport is reportedly the 3rd most expensively produced vehicle of all time, and there are only seven in existence—and one belongs to the Abu Dhabi police, so don’t try speeding there.

  • ’75 BRE Datsun Sunny Truck (B120)
  • Land Rover Defender 90
  • ’67 Austin Mini Pickup (new casting!)
