9.5On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the hardest) how difficult would it be to put together a complete set of Racing Dreams?
This includes the k mart, diamond comics and JL direct versions.
You did very well! It is difficult collecting a set with so many exclusives. I feel proud to have the entire mopar or no car series. It is over 100 cars when you have all the real rubber tire variations.I have them all only because I got them as they were released and didn't have to back track and try to find them on the secondary market.
I was asking how difficult it would be because it's been a long time and you never see too many for sale, no matter where you look.
All the Mopar and Monopoly cars WOW THAT IS IMPRESSIVE!You did very well! It is difficult collecting a set with so many exclusives. I feel proud to have the entire mopar or no car series. It is over 100 cars when you have all the real rubber tire variations.
I also was able to complete the Monopoly set including all the ToysRUs, KB, and Target exclusives. Its nice to see people here collecting their hobby's with such great interest and pride!----Al.
I agree with you on both counts. Nothing against OLDs, but being able to find it, take it off the peg and pay for it at the same time was half the fun. The first set of JLs I became interested in was the Top Fuel Legends after seeing them in a KB outlet. I was in sales and on the road so it was easy to hit all the local KBs to complete the set. That led to the Stock Car and Funny Car Legends, Showstoppers, and Racing Machines. Thank goodness for KB.The thing I really miss is being able to go into a store and actually find those JL cars hanging on the pegs, what a rush!
I miss the hunt and it somehow seemed more satisfying trying to track something down physically rather than ordering from an OLD and just waiting for the mail to come.
Also miss the cardboard packaging those cars came in, as well as the price.
Never was a fan of clamshell packaging, except for the Racing Dreams series, which is something that looks better entombed.
