I visited my area diecast dealer today to get some new 1/18 stuff & he had these JL 6 packs of Muscle cars in interlocking cases on the counter ! New colors ,ID # 55310 . Owner said he didnt know if they were special deal or not . Just ordered them from Ertls new products lists .
Had $15 price on them . All I saw had mushed boxes .. Anyone see them before ?

All the stores have them now, nobodys buying them, i quess they are kinda expensive, and there is something about the paint job that makes them look bland, that is my opinion, they don't look like the cars that you get in the package, which look like real cars.

They look to have the same quality as all other JL's . Just different because no picture card with each car . Most are authentic colors .. At $15 - its less per car than buying 6 new cars induvidually ..... & you get the display cases if you want them .... Ive not seen them anywhere before ....

If They continue releasing series like that, it would be good for the Regular Car Collectors - I think its more bang for the buck with the Showcases included :thumbsup: But on the other hand, I can see how it would make the WL Only Collectors upset. WL's would have no single card individuality and would cost them more to acquire. Just think, it might drive some Scalpers out of the game.

Great idea. Who cares if there are no WLs.
6 vehicles and an acrylic case for $15.00.
Sounds like a sweet deal to me. And they appear to be all muscle cars.
Even better IMHO.

Cheers. Cobra

Seems to be a better deal than $7.99 for a $5.99 case with a "free" car!

I saw one of these for the first time at Meijers tonight. IMHO I thought that the quality level was more like the "red card" series rather than what JL is doing now.

Those do look nice, to me. As far as "Red Card" quality, I think the Red Cards had a lot of fine detail, just lousy rims. Like this...



I love this car! If they had used Cragars on this it would have been perfect.

:)

My sentiments exactly!

Still looking for a red card red cobra with orange stripes. :D
