Friday Auction Block: Playing Mantis Johnny Lightnings

Illustration for article titled Friday Auction Block: Playing Mantis Johnny Lightnings

There's been a lot of talk about Johnny Lightnings the last few weeks. I have lots of them, as I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time when they were readily available on retail pegs all over.


As part of my effort to keep my collection from getting more out of control than it already is, I present to you this block of 25 14 Playing Mantis era Johnny Lightnings for sale. Prices for models of this era on ebay are completely schizoid, so lets just call them $3 a piece, plus shipping. I will also consider trades for Auto Worlds.

Here's the list. I can take detailed pictures of anything you're interested in tonight.
