I picked this up the other day along with a few others. I was rummaging through the isle end bin, and right before I was going to walk away, I did one last sweep, and there it was! Under my nose the whole time... I had to do the Datsun HotWheels dance.

I used to only pick up Japanese HotWheels, then I started getting the old BMW 2002s; now I get anything that's worthy enough to hang on the wall.

Oh, and about those wagons I wasn't able to get my hands on... I got two from a friend, along with a treasure hunt 240z. I wanted his super treasure hunt 240z, but he wouldn't part with it as he only had one. I'm still happy though.

I have more HotWheels coming soon, along with a wall card hanger I'm planning on building. It should be finished after we move to a new location. The 510 will probably have to be towed to the new home for the third time in ten years.

DAMN!! You got the wagon!! I think they will be hitting the shelves everywhere soon. I have yet to see any of that series so they must be coming soon. That's a good score on a Treasure hunt 240, they are really hard to find.

They just seem to not be around...time for another "sweep" I guess, I will buy any and all if I find them.

It's about time my luck turns around... Picked up three more today. Luckily my friend LOVES the 240, so I get to make a few bucks off him. :D

Word on the street is that if they arent in your area yet, they wont be. It looks like the Boulevard Series has been cancelled due to lack of interest. So I imagine that if yoiu havent found one now, youre a bit SOL. There is also work that there will be another 510 coming out in the Flying Customs Series at one point. No definitive date though.

You will have to buy those second hand as they sold out within the first 30mins of going up.

I never saw many of the Boulevard series anywhere. Ralphs supermarket has the most at any place I've ever seen, but they were way old. Last time I was at Walmart (3 months or so), they said they won't be restocking them, and Walmart too had the older series, not the series with the wagon. I got two of them, so I'm happy. There's still a few Datsun HotWheels that I want to have in my hands.

The idea of a new 510 coming out is awesome. I want more. Since the real 510 can't drive, at least I can enjoy my Datsun HotWheels collection.

Score..major score.....4 score and 7 years..no..wait, that is something to do with you U.S. guys....

I took it upon myself as a challenge to track down some of these wagons, figuring the U.S did get some, somewhere! After cruising many of my usual sites die cast sites, etc, I decided to think outside of the box so to speak.

Finally, I stumbled up a source, and got 4 of these baby's. My daughter picked them up today from her U.S. drop box.
