I was at one of the local Walmarts looking for something with the girlfriend and I pulled one of my "vanishing acts" (she turns around and I head straight for the Die Cast area). I was shocked and surprised to see that Walmart had most of the stuff on Clearance.


I found three M2 Machines that just jumped out at me and they had to come home and be set free.

And of course as I mentioned in another post I found this M2 Machines Wild Card and I could not leave it there. I really like the whole model including the wheels and rims.

I almost forgot to add this one. My two dogs Moejoe and Gizzy decided to guard my photo booth and cars from their big mean brother (the cat) Jeager.

When ever me and the wife are in WM, I always get seperated from her somehow:tongue: And then when we find each other, for some odd reason, I have a bunch of diecast in my hands. She just smiles. Love the yellow one!

Thanks bro when I was taking pictures the two of them were laying on either side of me wanting attention. The black and white one (Moejoe) always lays by my side when I am taking pictures of my collection as if she is supervising me, The little white one is Gizzy and he just has to be where his sister is.

Lucky you. They're all $5.88 here.

My girlfriend use to be a Assistant Manager for Wal Mart and she said this is the time of year that most stores start discounting most stuff to get ready for the Christmas shipment which arrive starting in September.

Nice finds. Great dogs!

Thank you bro on both counts. Both dogs and the cat are rescue animals. Moejoe my dog was left at a truck stop when I got her, the little white one was wondering around the complex when I brought him home a year ago. He was suppose to be here for a couple of days and we have had him over a year. The cat was rescued from the pound.

I'll check it out soon. The only time I saw clearance on the diecast were 1:87 being $1 each instead of $2.99.
