It's 72 hours or until the first ham-fisted friend of yours picks it up and breaks the hood, trunk, or turnable wheels. According to Maisto, few make it to 72 hours.Patrick96LT4 said:Warranty? Is it 3 years or 36,000 pushes?
FOUND ONE!!!!!!BIG LAW MAN said:Find me a die cast model of my car! I have been looking for someone that makes a 1:18 scale replica of my 2002 Electron Blue Z06. Well it turns out the big die cast maker Maisto made an EB Z06 EXCLUSIVELY for Target stores. You cant find this car anywhere else. I have been to MANY MANY Targets in my area and ZERO luck. If you would be so kind to help me while your there picking up whatever else you need, just trot over to the toy section and look for the car. I will pay you the cost of the car and shipping costs of course. If they have more than one, I will take them all.
It comes in a black box with clear plastic top to see the car. The car is 1:18 scale, approximately 8 inches long. It says Special Edition Corvette Z06 on the front and it is obviously blue in color. I think they cost between $10-15 dollars.
MUCH THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!
P.S. I posted this request over in the CF but I know my loyal die hard DC guys/gals can find these first!!!
Nice work Brian! You managed to locate something that the manufacturer swears doesn't exisit. :thumbsup:bkuper said:FOUND ONE!!!!!!

Okay, great, that gives me something concrete to work with.BIG LAW MAN said:Ray, for what its worth, the UPC number on the box is 90159 31889
Well at least now I understand why the auction frenzy. The box says "2001" but the car is Electron Blue, a color not offered on the Z06 until 2002. So what makes this particular one prized among "collectors" is that simple fact. It's kind of like the airmail stamp that's worth a gillion dollars because the airplane is upside-down. There is nothing intrinsically valuable about the stamp. It commands that price because it's an oddity and it's rare. The question is, despite the fact that the model you seek is an "oddity", is it truly rare?BIG LAW MAN said:No. I asked both Maisto and Target that when I emailed them and was never given a response. I wanted to know the release date and approximate production numbers, but got no response.
That's what I'm thinking. That's why no one at Maisto could tell me what Target had to put on the order form to get EB.BIG LAW MAN said:I fear it is a totally random selection that gets sent to Target.
