Can someone from Greenlight explain why the Mustang Series.... Cruise In, rang up as - 1:64 County Road Trucks, and more importantly why they are $5.99?
fuddmiester, there is no other answer from GreenLight other than what I posted earlier in this thread - prices are determined by individual retailers, as is the data reading pulled from a UPC. You'll find GreenLight at mass market stores anywhere from $3.99-$5.99 based on the individual chain's mark-up requirements or profit margin decisions.
Regarding the Toys 'R' Us "1:64 County Road Trucks" UPC scan data, they are working to update that information currently. The SKN for all GreenLight SE items is the same - County Roads, Hot Pursuit and Cruise-In - all fall under the same product line umbrella and in turn, the same pegs at the store-level. Since the item was originally set up as "1:64 County Road Trucks" and then transitioned to "1:64 GreenLight SE", it appears to have taken a while for them to update their systems, which is not uncommon in the mass market.
I hope that clarifies the situation. As always, we have our "Where to Buy" section at www.greenlighttoys.com, which will provide our collectors with many purchasing options around the country from OLDs to hobby shops to mass market stores.

$6 is insane to pay for a regular 1:64 vehicle. All the GMs will be gone, but the rest should stay put at TRUs.
Well considering that I was buying one set to open and 2-3 & 4 extras in some cases.... I'd say I was hard core!The hardcore Greenlight collector will still buy regular Greenlight issues for $5.99 each, but, How many hardcore Greenlight collectors are there?
If the production run was 1000 of each car for the series, I would buy the GL cars that I like. I doubt if I would be a completist for every GL series though.
