Just a question for those of you who are in the Know.... I recieved my (2) Bronco's in the mail today, one with a number stamp of 033, and one with a 526! I had the understanding that this release was limited to 500!!!??? Not sure if this is a mis-print, or if perhaps the release was larger than stated.... This guy is VERY HAPPY WITH THE BRONC's...but CONFUSED!! Simple minded guy here.......doesnt take much! :) Thanks much folks!

I'm not sure on that one, but I do not that sometimes the runs go a little bit over, but wow 26. Im sure someone here will have a better answer. You might also want to call RC2 customer service and speak with them, they could probably give you the best answer. I'm still waiting on my broncos, they got my order all messed up :cry:

I posted the same question about the Ford GT couple of days ago and got virtually no responses. Someone posted that they had number 755 on that one of a run of 750.

It probably boils down to a run of x plus 10% to allow for defects, etc.
So if they have few or no defects, the number could run over x, I suppose.
That is just a theory, but I understand that something like that is normal
in a production run.
So if the run was 700 + 10% with no defects you could end up with 770.
And that would explain the serial number above the posted production run.

The other possibility could be caused by packaging and shipping.
12 casting to a box times 4 inners per master box equals 48 castings.
16 master boxes times 48 castings would give you 768 castings total.
11 master boxes times 48 castings would give you 528 castings total
in a limited production run of 500.
This also is just a theory, but I am sure there are others who can shed
some light on this subject.

I know that the 40th anniversary Broncos from http://www.broncodiecast.com/ were supposed to be a run of 2500, but due to case quantites, they're issuing a total of 2544. They ship 48 per case and to get 2500 Broncos, they would have to have 52.083 cases, so to get a full case, they make 2544 Broncos. I'm sure it's a similar thing with all of the other limited JLs.

I have seen those but I also saw their disclaimor at the bottom.
