I picked up 2 Mopar 10 car box sets with a Blue Daytona WL in each set today!

Hey Al, I hit Times square, the 5 boros, and the island. I'm all over! But on the island you just gotta hit it right. There's so many others looking too. But it does amaze me how I can hit the stores and find a WL hanging on the pegs as late as 6 or 7 PM at times.

Most people were at the Elmont toy show this weekend. Did you go?

The only whites I got lately were some 10 car sets. 19 Toys R Us stores in one day, and I only got a few! Tough work, Glad I got a couple, because I think they were all put out right in the beginning? I see a retired guy at Massapequa often, He buys on speculation (many things) then a few weeks later he is returning them? 9 ToysRUs today, cause I saw the 5 car SUV/Truck set in Levitown. Bayshore also had them, but no whites! By the way, neither store had them out yesterday!

I'm not sure if thats the same guy Al. The one at the Massapequa store I'm thinking of is about 50-60 years old. He's a stocky guy. drives a station wagon.
He's nails most of them.
The Bayshore store has an insider who's hooked up with 2 scalpers/collectors that get first crack at the cases before they go out.

You CAN find stuff at these 2 store BUT its very iffy. You guys should both meet me at the next St. Vincent's show. We could do some trades. The Bronx is very good to me. I always score when I go their.

There is a hobby shop on Hempstead Tpk. But they pull all the whites and scalp em off. Willis ave hobbies I have never hit yet, but I did get some WL model kits from there. And the hobby store on sunrise Hwy in the Kohl's shopping lot( near carlton ave) i only got a WT out of. I think the guy who has massapequa TRU also has this store hooked up.

I got more info on more stores but email me for the rest! Too many ears around here :lol:
