Thanks.  I was concerned there might be two versions (no idea why they'd do that, musta been thinking of clones).  That set was at the same store as Luigi and friends.  We'll see if they're both still there.  Gimme a couple of days please.

No confusion, I knew that.  I think two showed on ebay, claiming to be in hand but it turned out they were just a pre-order.  I still expect them to hit shortly.

The confusion was mine.  Dan and I had been discussing this as well, just via pm.  I wasn't sure what the 'fan' versions of Luigi and Guido looked like.

Nice - looks like my house a few weeks back.

Minus the cowboy hat of course.

Picked up the new sets today at Walmart.  Really like Guido & Luigi.

Wow, these have totally dried up around here.  Anything that was left post Christmas is gone.  Talking to a couple of retailers and this was THE toy line for them this year, apparently putting a sizable hit on Hot Wheels even, though those sold well as stocking stuffers in the end.

No help from me for Mikey/Dan at this point, sorry fellas.  I'll keep looking, but lmk if you find what you want before I do.

Our situation is just the opposite here - nothing on the pegs pre-Xmas and now it's quite easy to find almost every character.

They're really nice vehicles - from the detailed tampos (see Chick and Filmore) to the shiny paint jobs, they are quality die cast toys.

Just the right scale too.

Single vehicle packs are restocked now, but no multi-packs at the moment.

Yeah?  See any Hamms, Chicks, Kings or Dinoco McQueens?

Mikey, I've seen the movie, but unless someone tells me what I'm looking for, I'm only seeing cars with eyes on them.  I think I saw the Dinoco McQueen but don't remember the rest.  I'll start looking for those though now that I have an idea what someone is after.

You know, the car's name is on the package  ::)  :P

Chick

King

I didn't see any Hamms or Dinoco McQueens on ebay looking quickly, but Hamm is the pig from Toy Story done as a car and Dinoco McQueen is Lighting McQueen just in blue (see King's color).

Thanks.

PS - I don't have your **** together yet, mainly because I've been slacking off, but hope to get to it this weekend.  I'll shoot you a PM when I do.
