Happy mistake!

Postby dragonhead00 » Sun Jun 07, 2009 2:22 am

I went to TRU expecting to be disappointed and what do I find - a 1/25 VW 21-window Samba "splitty"! Of course, because of finances, I expected to be leaving it on the shelf, but I was shocked when I scanned it just for S&G's. $1.00!!!!! Happy dance doesn't begin to describe my celebration. :lol: The clerk didn't even bat an eye when she rung it up. This is my kind of treasure hunt!

Thanks! Mark just got the same deal at a TRU in his area. I guess it's a pricing error. Better catch 'em before they catch the mistake.

The funny thing is all of the other 1:24 Maistos, except the VW Van, are being sold at their regular price of $12.99.

Funny, but lucky for us VW collectors! :D And look at the scale. 1:25! I've never seen the actual scale printed on the packaging.
