    Default Atari themed hotwheels!

    I noticed there was some cool new Atari themed cars at my local store. I got the 2600 GMC motorhome. Funny, the games on the package aren't all 2600 games. I also noticed a centipede, pong, tempest, breakout and tempest cars too.

    Neat! I have the Sega Hotwheels, so I'm definitely going to snag these. Thanks for the heads up!

    Wow, that wasn't in the first set of Atari Arcade Hot Wheels, was it?

    Damn, I have to get my hands on a couple of those GMCs. My parents own a couple and go to GMC rallys and such. My dad is one of the 'go-to' guys for programming the computers people put on them when they add fuel injection, he'd love one of these hot wheels.

    I didn't see any of these at Walmart. I did pick up a DC Universe Wonder Woman car though.

    The Video Game Critic has a very nice review of them:

    Where else have people found them? So far the only reports I've seen are Kmart and Kroger (or Fred Meyer which apparently is a Kroger affiliate). We don't have Kroger here. And the Kmarts we've checked didn't have any in stock. Hope we haven't missed out.

    Kroger owned Food4Less out west too so maybe try that? I've never seen Atari cars, just Nintendo and Sega themed stuff.

    I can second that they are available in K-Marts as there are some Atari Hot Wheels here at our local store.

    Actually, it is part of the set. Somehow I must have missed it. Great stuff.

    A different KMart had two of them, but I had to dig to find them. But it was only $1.75 ea. So worth the dig. We'll go to another KMart today or tomorrow to see if we can find the rest.
