My K-Mart K-Day promotional mail in cars have arrived. They are the Datsun Bluebird 510, as expected. Unfortunately, there were a few people who were receiving a Toyota truck instead of the Datsun. Mattel was quick to address the issue if you called them to let them know, but it left many wondering if they would actually get the correct casting. Fortunately, it looks like Mattel learned of the issue and corrected it rather quickly.
The Toyota truck is actually there next mail in, which you can get by participating in a promotion Walmart is hosting.
The car itself is very high quality. It features a metal body and metal chassis. The tires are rubber Real Riders on 4 spoke wheels. The car itself is black and yellow. The yellow might be “spectra flame” but I do not know if that’s official. The yellow paint is semi-translucent. I am very happy to add this car to my collection and hope that you have been able to get one too! If you haven’t, at the time of posting this article, I have a few for trade on the trade page.
You can find the database entry for the car by clicking here.
Below you’ll find some pictures and a YouTube video I put together. I’ll be experimenting with YouTube going forward, so please like the video, subscribe, or leave a comment to let me know what you think.
