They run around $2 at K-Mart ($2.19 has been reported at some), so $25 for a case of 12 is reasonable. They're definitely worth that if you ask me.

Has anyone used Laughing Pants? Are they reliable?

Thanks,
Mark

LOL. Could be worse, be glad it's not the Scion xB.

Is that the toaster on wheels? I think I saw an episode of "Pimp my ride" on MTV where they bought this kid one of these Scion thingys and "pimped" it out. And.....well.....it still looked horrible...worse actually.

They put a huge spoiler on top in the back, like they thought it was gonna fly away or something. :freak: Then they added this big groud effects bumper in the from that stuck out, literally, almost 3 feet. Looked like a brand new bumper car. It was hilarious watching them TRY to make this car cooler, but it just wasn't happening. :lol:


Anyway, back to the MB cars....the Honda Element has all that gray plastic paneling that just makes it look worse. IMO.

Click on 'Online Store'. There's a list of buttons along the left side of the screen. Click 'Search' button, 3 buttons up from the bottom.

Well, I was able to rifle through wave one at megal low-mart, and was not impressed with the diecast itself. The box art was really nice. Reminiscent of matchbox years ago. I just couldn't justify the price of buying them when they looked cheap. I swear you pay more for the box than the car. They seemed a little on the cheesy side to me(the diecast itself).

I got an e-mail from them the other day, said their allotment is sold out and don't expect to get any more. Bummer, their price was pretty good.

This is without a doubt the best thing Matchbox has come out with in years. Us Matchbox collectors are going nuts trying to get them, but we're having to compete with scalpers. The only thing I would change is a little more variety in the wheels. They're putting the new 5 spokes on all the modern era cars.

those wheels arent to good the beetle conv looks bad with them and the vw bus wasnt too good either think the gto judge looks the best with them

so far i only need 2 from wave 1



sucks laughingpants sold out i was gonna buy a case of wave 1

collectorsnetusa.com has wave three for 39.90 shipped for a box of all 12
