Out running errands today, just “happened” to run by the Target I hadn’t been to for a while and lo and behold, I managed to snag most of the current cars that I needed but didn’t have yet, even though the HW pegs were not overflowing.
An interesting thing, though:
Note the (marked down!) repackage sticker on these two. There were a couple more like this (I think another Long Gone and something else). These have been opened and taped back up. But I think they kind of opened themselves. Upon closer inspection, the GTO wagon blister was glued down none too tight:
Maybe just a bad glue batch or something, but the Star Trek car that I picked up last week had a little tab of tape on each end of the blister, so I wonder now if Mattel is trying to keep the cars from falling out. Anyway, they ended up being marked down and I’m gonna DLM anyway, so I’m cool.
All that to say, check for marked down prices on these, and make sure they ring up correctly (I had to bring it to the attention of my cashier).
