    I probably won't have the money in time, but preordered anyway. By hook or by crook I'm getting this set, goddammit.

    Far too expensive for me given that I'm really only interested in Dragstrip.

    Preordered as well - I'm not missing this. You KNOW some 3rd party company is going to come up with a way for these clowns to all combine, you just KNOW it.

    I only want Motormaster. He isn't worth the $430.

    Thats interesting. I thought they were not going this year? I guess they have people who pcik them up or they did the non attending. I always thought they just purchased a set for all the people working their booths? Just a side note, nothing more.....

    Wow! Basically no mark up? That's kinda shocking.

    Looks like they have around 34 sets.

    Edit: Oh duh... it's marked up like $115. For some reason I was thinking $415 for the original price.

    I'm extremely tempted to buy one of these only to resell later. I don't want them at all.

    True enough but thats likely to be chicken feed compared to what they will go for once the hit Ebay.

    Exactly. And the worse case scenario (at least for me) is I get tired of looking at it and just sell it later... I DOUBT that I'll LOSE money on it. If anyone has the extra $430 (or WILL in June/July), why not go for it? If you change your mind you can always cancel it or sell it, right? Someone somewhere IS going to want your set.

    Agreed. I think they're going conservative while they have 34 sets and the price will probably creep up if they sell out.
