I don't do video games (I sucked at Pong, fer gosh sakes!), listen to music the way God meant us to (on the radio), and I've run a Grand National down the track many times (can't imagine a Hemi being much better except for the noise :tongue: :p )


3. Does any of this Learning Curve/RC2 talk scare you?
All this talk concerns me; dropping models and some diecast lines, talking about the profit in Thomas the Tank, the Learning Curve name emphasis ...... JLs are my first and best diecast love, and I'd hate to see it go down the tubes)

4. You kind of bummed that Hot Wheels snagged the Batmobile license?
Batman, Schatman ...... not my cup of tea anyway (they've got the pockets for licensing like this, and Ferarri, etc.)

5. How awesome does this movie look? Would you buy a JL casting of this?


How could I enjoy any movie that demolishes an older car????
Nice to see the return of Matt's Five Questions franchise :thumbsup:
Thanks.

Scare? No. but it does worrie me that our worst fears
about the buyout may come true.

4. You kind of bummed that Hot Wheels snagged the Batmobile license?

No, not really.

5. How awesome does this movie look? Would you buy a JL casting of this?


Looks Awesome, The Nova looks kinda like the PiP
Nova. And sure, I'd buy a replica.
Looks like its using an import for a landing pad.

Nope because as RC2 said JL's will not change. Talk is of other brands. But people like to talk, so......

4. You kind of bummed that Hot Wheels snagged the Batmobile license?
Yes was hoping it would be RC2.

5. How awesome does this movie look? Would you buy a JL casting of this?

I am guessing that is a '70 Nova. Great ride!

D for me and probably b around the Holidays as a family gift?


3. Does any of this Learning Curve/RC2 talk scare you?
Hmmmmmm? I'll have to pass on this one. A potential scare, maybe

4. You kind of bummed that Hot Wheels snagged the Batmobile license?

Not at all. I think they are the only ones who could swing it. It tooks big bucks, big lawyers etc. I'm just glad it's happening. Sure I prefer JL but I prefer HW to nothing.

5. How awesome does this movie look? Would you buy a JL casting of this?

Sorry, can't see the picture. Is it the new movie with the motorcycle and rider on fire? If so, I'm there.

No interest in an IPOD, too many game consoles laying around the house already and I have done 1/4 mile passes in a SD 455 Trans Am, 427 Cobra and a twin Turbo Porsche 930, so I don't think I am missing too much


3. Does any of this Learning Curve/RC2 talk scare you?
Nope, it is either true or its not and there is nothing I can do either way

4. You kind of bummed that Hot Wheels snagged the Batmobile license?
Nope, at least somebody is doing it!!!

BTW, did you hear that Barris started out wanting $75 for a signed copy and is now up to $200 to get one. WHo does he think he is? Carroll Shelby??? :eek:


5. How awesome does this movie look? Would you buy a JL casting of this?

Only if they both looked EXACTLY like the picture!!

2. What would you rather:

E. Whichever one would cost the most. :D

3. Does any of this Learning Curve/RC2 talk scare you?

Nope, just the same gloom and doom forecasts as have been around for a long time now. I have a nice collection and aside from a few important holes I want to fill to finish some sets, if it all ended tomorrow, I could move on to something else with no regrets.

4. You kind of bummed that Hot Wheels snagged the Batmobile license?

More bummed about the Ferrari license. Imagine some JL Ferraris....Wow.

5. How awesome does this movie look? Would you buy a JL casting of this?

Looks pretty good, but all movies are made to look good, otherwise no one would go see them. ;) I might buy the castings, but I HAVE TO ACTUALLY SEE THEM first. :wave:

Really the Hemi Cuda would be good, let them try and stop me- Vroom Vroom ;)

3. Does any of this Learning Curve/RC2 talk scare you?
No- I believe that JL will continue forever. I would not look for any Barris cars to be done though.

4. You kind of bummed that Hot Wheels snagged the Batmobile license?
Nope, they all-ready proved they'd do it good.
5. How awesome does this movie look? Would you buy a JL casting of this?

Is this some new thing from you tube I've missed? :confused:

3. Does any of this Learning Curve/RC2 talk scare you?
I guess not. I would miss buying JLs for a while, but knowing how I am, I would find something else to take their place. What I do worry about is that the annual gatherings of our friends would come to an end.

4. You kind of bummed that Hot Wheels snagged the Batmobile license?
I really don't know

Our annual gathering of friends will continue no matter what manufacturers come and go or lose interest in us, the true collectors. We will always have a place to go once a year to get together and have fun... I can say this with certainty :thumbsup:

3. I'm not surprised. Seems like whenever I like something. It either gets changed, or becomes non-existant. (Course, on somethings, I fall out of favor with the product and then a couple of years later, return to love it again.)

4. Not really surprised or shocked. They probably have the most $$$ of any of the current diecast companies.

5. Eh. No thanks.
