It’s that magical time of year when pallets of 1/18 models arrive at your local Sam’s Club, Costco, and BJ’s wholesale club stores. Even though Maisto is on the lower rungs of the desirability ladder as far as quality and detail go, even the most discriminating collectors can’t say no to a 1/18 scale model for under $15 bucks. This year’s batch looks to include Maisto’s new Huracan Performante model, the new “Heritage edition” Ford GT, and rebranded models from their sister company: Bburago.
I feel like these are popping up early this year. Typically, these pallets hit the warehouse floors sometime between back to school and the start of the holiday shopping season. The photos you see here are from a Facebook group member who already found these at his local Sam’s Club. I guess I really need to renew my membership and get to hunting... along with scoring deals on 64-rolls of 2-ply toilet paper and a three pack of 40oz. ketchups.
