Agreed It became depressing when they started to back out of pretty much every store around here. The only places that seem to still have whisps of JL's are TRU(who've had the same pegwarmer Racing Legends since last spring) and WalMart(who count on always having the ugly, cheap looking 40th sets to keep their pegs nice and warm)Not a good sign with the holidays fast approaching. Just look at this board and count how many threads are about cars LOL.
I have collected JL since I found those first Muscle Cars in 1994 at a Walmart in Manassass, VA.
DadsCoronet, I'm in total agreement with you.Personally, the Forever 64 line isn't gonna do it for me; I will be very selective with those. What I want are rubber tires, metal bases and great paint jobs!:thumbsup:
Leave the guitars and pizzas at home, please......:tongue:
Sounds like the 'Forever 64' series, which is the replacement for the 40th series. But secretly, I hope I'm wrong and it's a new release of the JL mainline!!! One can only hope......I found some JL release 1 cars at Wally World today. Would these be the 2010 release? They are on a nice new-er looking card.
You said it all for me right there....RC2 has killed pretty much everything they have ever touched. I knew the writing was on the wall the day they purchased JL.Ah, RC2/Ertl.......................The Grinch who killed diecast.:tongue:
