I agree. That whole set looks pretty good to me.
I like the Nova, Cougar, and I'm really diggin the retro custom scheme on the Camaro.
Goes for me too. What set is that? Isn't it like Hot Rod Magazine or something?

Jeez...

Al's comment was generous and the otherwise relative quiet about it speaks volumes. Somebody has to try to put it in words...

A culturally iconic experience that was Looney Tunes is represented by this? I am a lover of both muscle cars and Looney Tunes. There's no better way to describe it... This release pretty much kicks me in the balls!

The Road Runner on a Chevy Suburban?
Daffy Duck on a VW Karmann Ghia?
Wile E. Coyote on a Ford Truck?
All with clown blue wheels?

I'm hurt.

I'm a little more appalled by the last few price increases, which limit my purchasing. In the $9-$11 price range a few years ago, I would buy at least a master case of each release.

Now, 2 or 3 cars per release is it for me. I like the coyote, only because its an ice cream truck. the suburban is another of my must haves. only need one ecto, and 4 cars in the hotrod set.

With having the Monkeemobile licensing, I thought for sure we would see a monkee mobile in the platinum screens release.

I'm hurt.

What were the thoughts they gave to matching cars
with 'Toons?
Was it what* would fit where* and mayhaps esthetic
over all shape? I believe they actually thought about the
Character of the Car, not the maker. Then again, how do you
marry silly cartoons to serious automobiles without getting the
"clown car" effect?


I love the ACME truck as it is tongue-in-cheek serious like Wile E.

I love the bug because it lends itself so well to whimsey. Tweety is a good fit.

The Ghia needs a tweed hat type chap who takes himself TOO seriously.
Isn't Daffy Duck such a character?

Marvin Martian is a natural for the Sandvan. It IS kinda spacy looking.

It does look like they missed with Bugs Bunny and RoadRunner.
I believe those were chosen to fit the big graphic on the roof.


Based on my observation, I will collect the first four I mentioned to
leave as they are (when the hubbub dies down). I like them.
The last two, I will collect when the price is right. (they may become custom fodder)

Thanks for the read!:wave:

I like Looney Tunes, I like slots, but other than the Wile E and Bugs Bunny cars, I can't see me buying any others (My fave obviously is Wile E., the TM's fave is Bugs).

The Hot rod series is a bit more appealing. The retro striping on the Camaro looks very 70's-ish which fits well. The Nova looks like it has good potential. I'm curious to see it with better pix. The "stang looks okay, and the Vega is iffy.
What bugs me (and more than a few others) is the Cougar. They've already done a green one. Was that just filler until the whole set is ready for release?

Found these pics...
What's with the; "What Drugs Were U On ???..." deal about making a "Penguin-Mobile' out of the BatMobile ??? ... "PITHETIC" :freak:

Scooby-Van, is just another 2 w/ different color schemes...

& NOT from either live action OR the Hanna-Barabara Animation...
(AW got the Hanna-Barbara 1 the first time it released..)...

along with that metalic greenish in the 1st release.. (WHY??)...

Again; see above 4 ; "What Drugs Were U On ???..."

the "Ecto-1" is the ONLY 1 that is somewhat correct...
I predict; look 4 an "Ecto-1A", 2 probably be released later...

( I believe I Predicted that AW would make this 1...
due to the 59 caddy ambulance/hearse originally earlier released..)

Version "B"......... "PLEASE!!!!!!!" :(

the "Wille E. Coyote" seems to have the best bet 4 making sales...
in the "Looney-Tunes" collection...
a "TAZ" version, WOULD have been a hit-sales item...

still confused by the "Hot-Rod Magazine" release...:confused:
but there ARE some nice color schemes in there :thumbsup:

hopefully, that "Rat-Fink" chassis quality-control curse, will be lifted/fixed by the time these releases come out...

We are NOT; "IGNORANT-CHUMPS"....
Who will buy ANYTHING-Made out here....

(sales will/HAVE proven that....)

Please take my advice..............
Get some REAL-People 4 u'r "THINK-TANK"...........
B-4 it's "2-LATE"...........:thumbsup:

"The ice cream truck will probably be released again...most likely with flames or graffiti or something silly like that. "

Even money says flames are around the corner. :rolleyes:
