AutoWorld still produces slot cars (see them at Hobby Lobby when I'm looking for M2s). The two TRUs I've been to recently had two of each color still hanging. I wouldn't mind having them, but not for $30.
There are a 3-4 of them left at my local TRU. Gathering dust, getting beat up. I said early on that making a custom car such as a widebody was a bad idea. If a company really wanted to show off their prowess they would first produce a "stock" car that everyone is familiar with. I think just about anybody (Jada included) can make a decent representation of a given car when creative liberties can be taken and the body distorted. I would like to be able to compare what I am seeing to the other popular, less expensive brands before commiting to a $15 1:64.
