I had been convinced that some of these JL pegwarmers were going to be around forever, and would most likely still be hanging there ten years from now (the die cast equivalent of cockroaches!).

But more and more of the Wally's are dropping the prices to a buck and, wonder of wonders, these things are finally going away!!!!!!!

It is sooooooo nice to walk into a Wally and see the pegs free of these things. Just hope that they don't stay empty for too long (it appears that each store just got in one shot of the new cars so far :rolleyes: )

Rich, don't waste a trip to the Seekonk WM. For the past few weeks the only "NEW" car was the Torino, hanging there all by itself. No 1/24ths either.

The new Coventry WM on the other hand had some of the new Coke cars, and about 3 or 4 pegs of the other new stuff.

Some stores still have them, they are still in the clearance aisle. :) It's still nice to see fresh stock on the pegs where stores have received shipments. It's even nicer to see empty pegs than those old pegwarmers.

I found a couple Import Heats buried deep in a bin with a bunch of other $1 toy-junk. I thought that was a good place for them. The CARS assortment was out on the mainline pegs. Now they just need to get part II of the CARS assortment out there.

Now If they would just get more new JLs in. The wallys near where I work has just 2 new JLs from the Classic Gold series. The Lincoln and the Caddy.

Still a lot of empty peg space around here. Some of the "junk" is still hanging, although I've noticed it's moved. Not marked down, from what I can see.

That's going to be the real sign as to how things go this year. How often they replenish. I'm thinking WM is going to be like Target, only a case every couple months. Store finds may be few and far between this year.

Our WM still has about 60 unwanted SFs on clearance for $3.24 each (although they were originally priced $2.99 when they were first put out!) The scanner verifies the $3.24 price.

The 40 or so Pokers are marked down to $3.00 each & not showing any signs of depletion.

The Precision pegs are nearly empty (one Retros Talledega & one Pony Power 'stang left); that's a double-edged sword here: empty pegs mean the product sold out quickly, which means that it's popular and should be re-ordered immediately, but empty pegs also seem to take many months to be refilled at WM. (Hmmm...toe is tapping impatiently...)

Last week I saw some Clue castings hanging on a peg with some original Import Heat.
Yellow price tag of only $1.00. Still no buyers on these ones.

Cheers. Cobra

Those and the Monopoly and Saturday Evening Post cars.

Around here they are going to have to offer us a buck each to take them. :tongue:
