Yes I said Hot Wheels question. It seem their collector's club is having an exclusive CARS (the movie) Motor Speedway set sometime this May. I was wondering if anyone here is a member and would be willing to order one for me. It's my son's birthday in mid-May and he'd love this set.

Thanks,
Zamps

If I think of it, I will ask the Hot Wheels collectors around here to see if they can get this for you.

Thanks. I'll have to see what the price is when they announce the release date and price. Rumor has it might be $250+, which at that price will make my decision easy.

Wow! 250.00 sounds like a lot of money for something like that. The big Millennium Falcon isn't even going to be that much.

I agree. It does have 35+ race cars from the opening scene. And much like Star Wars Exclusives, they can charge what they want for it and people will buy them.

Thanks for the link. I think it's going to be too expensive for me. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

True. But I was eyeing up the Young Indiana Jones Series that are on sale this week. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

OUCH! That's $8.69 per car! I'm willing to bet that they are going to be sold out to RLC members before it's even open to the rest of us.

Yea...300 bux for those cars or 2 BMF or 3 AT TE come July 26.

I bet my wife would be happier with the 3 AT TE's instead

Looks like it's sold out....too bad so sad...now to check Ebay pricing.

Checked and they are going for $365 and higher....This is what irks me about Scalpers in general.

I figured non-RLC members wouldn't get a chance at ordering one of these.

Ebay: BIN $499!!!!!!

Yea, me too....but the auction of the scalper mentioning their child with a tumor. I find that very distasteful. Buying and reselling toys and using a child in that fashion is just weak and pathetic (IMHO).
