Ps....

FYI, I WASN'T the one who deleted the old thread, I guess the Admin did that.
Soooo.... do you think that Penguin VW Bus is an X-Traction or 4 Gear model ?:rolleyes:

What the hey? That was a good conversation.

It would behoove any moderator worth his salt to explain what violations were made...so we could perhaps avoid it next time?

The word I heard on the Dukes set is, the track is dark brown, the cars make the jump 9 out of 10 times and the picture of the production set I saw had the General in all his glory! :thumbsup:

The photos of the set boxes I posted, are of actual Delivered Sets. And although the Box Art doesn't show the Roof Decal on General Lee, the set car actually Does HAVE the Decal of the Rebel Flag !

Dang. When do we get the set with the cow-pasture bumps-and-twists track running between the cattle and kudzu-smothered utility poles? And Daisy's jeep chasing ... well, something. The point is not what it's chasing, the point is Daisy's jeep and the bumps and twists and the cows.

And would it be so hard this time to put a figure of Daisy driving it? Maybe with one of the boys, sitting in the passenger seat, holding onto his hat? Talk about a hot-selling car! If it was available only in the set, it would be a hot-selling set.

Yeah, I know. You'd have to give the furschlugginer low-clearance X-traction chassis bigger tires and special pickup shoes, so it could actually get over the bumps and twists.

:devil: ... Maybe Catherine Bach's Daisy in the white jeep could be chasing Jessica Simpson's Daisy in the Black Jeep off the property. Hnyuk hnyuk.

Yep Brian thats where I got my info on the Dukes set.
I got the new Auto World catalog today, of all the pictures of sets in it, the Dukes one is the only one they don't show all set up. There a is set that is supposed to be out with the Ghostbusters Ecto 1 and a NYPD police car that looks pretty neat. No picture of the Legends of the Quarter Mile race set, but further in the catalog theres pictures of their die cast funny cars that will be avaliable, '71 Mustangs, and '71 Chargers. It says Jungle Jim's car but not which one it'll be. It'd be neat to see that '71 Charger funny car in HO.

I got my 2013 Auto World catalog today.
according to the catalog, the Batman set has a 4 gear(Batmobile) and X-Traction(Penguin VW van).
the Dukes set shows the G Lee as it was on TV.

Say, here's a Dukes set they haven't done:



The surviving General Lee TV cars being hauled out of the studio.

Got a few excess bodies lying around?
