What was Kday? I am bummed that I missed something local. They had about 15 of the 57 chevy, maybe 10 of the firebird and about 6 of the camaros along with a ton of other stuff in 4 big storage bins. I almost bought all of them to try my hand at customizing with. I love the 57.
It's just a first to market, I believe. Should start showing up at other retailers soon.
Swag, K-day or Kmart Day, etc. is a quarterly (although this year it was only three times) event held by Kmart and sponsored by Mattel. Various castings will be in colors only available at Kmart. Others will be first to market.
Each store is different, but the official guidelines are that at 9 AM on K-day, tickets will be drawn and those who have them get to open a K-day case (36 count) and pick 5 cars in 5 minutes. This continues until all the tickets are drawn.
Most people view it as a lottery to get a $uper TH.
Very nice. The only ones left over from my Kdays was several '69 Chevelles, a Firebird and the non-exclusives, of course. The DD was predictably the first one to disappear, then the '67 Camaro. Congrats.
I missed the Kday,
But I have been bothering my Wal Mart Toy manager every day now, and just yesterday, scored 4 of those new '67 Firebirds.
I bought some other stuff, so I ran out of money to get all the other good ones.
