    I laugh so hard at this comment that it brought tears to my eyes. It's so funny! No offense to snoble. I'm happy for you you got 8 458's.
    But where I lived we got 4 Wal-Marts, 3 K-Marts, 2 Targets, and a TRU that's been dead for years. I can't even find 1 458. Or worse yet I have yet to see the blue 308 GTS hanging on the pegs. Thanks to ( blue62 ) for mailing me 1.

    Hawaiian35 if you PM me your address I will send you a few :) I only have 2 of the 308's so far, one with the keychain and one without. The only other interesting thing I have is a spare Tyrell.

    I found and purchased a 1:87 scale F430 Challenge from Toys R Us last week. It was a hotwheels special edition.

    I also found (bumbo?) 458 Italia garage scene with two-post lift and rolling tool box. The setting (the box) is the front of a Ferrari shop complete with cinder block walls and the Italia stripe running the perimeter.

    I also picked up the Enzo garage scene.

    The Italia has working headlights and engine sounds.....kinda goofy, but theyre pretty neat.

    I appreciate your concern. I know you are just trying to help and thank you. But out of the 50 mailine cars in this 50 pack special I only want no more than 10 cars in there.
    1. 458
    2. DBS
    3. LP 560-4 ( white )
    4. GT2
    5. 67 Camaro ( orange )
    6. Reventon roadster
    7 Superleggera ( green )
    8. GT500 KR ( blue )

    So if these 8 cars are worth $1.15 each that's $9 bucks. Just wasted $40 if I order this 50 pack. Unless in this 50 pack they include all the new Speed Machines and the red, yellow, and black Phils Garage 288GTO then I'm sold! I'll even order 2, 50 packs. This way one pack I can open and the other for display.

    Rob, you had me excited. If that was the $50 w/e pack, I would buy that instead of hunting for individual cars. :eek:

    I don't think Hotwheels will let us customize our own 50 Pack cars. They'll lose out. Plus I guess it's not fun this way. The hunting stops at the stores if we can do our own customization. It kills the beauty and the thrill of hunting pegs.
    But in my case I think customization is the best way if it's possible to do so because the 50 cars I just listed will take me a year or longer to obtain all 50 cars on my wall. With the way stores are doing their operations here I might not even see the new cars like the 458 Italia or the 911 GT2 on the pegs until December.
    Heck, I have yet to see the blue 308GTS on the pegs here. My eyes are very tired of seeing Gold ( DeLoreans ). For 8 weeks that's all I ever get to see. That's torture for a collector!

    Stopped at my closest WM this morning before work.

    The 2010 Q case cars were on the pegs, as well as a shipper with 2011 cards. I saw a G37, DBS, and a black DeLorean. First time I've seen the black one. I grabbed it, but then I noticed that the rear hatch was crooked, so I left it.

    The weird thing was that they had a handful of really old cars in the corner of the peg display. Some "Fossil Fuels" dragster from 2001 (?!?), a Maserati MC12, and a Hemi Cuda from 2002. I guess someone did a return?

    I left empty handed. No new Speed Machines, which is what I was really looking for.

    Has anyone else seen the new Mattel Hot Wheels-branded 1/43 scale Ferraris that I strongly believe are actually Ixo? I bought 4 at Toys R' Us (St. Laurent Centre, Ottawa) yesterday, a red Ferrari Testarossa, a silver 550 Barchetta (awesome in silver), a red 612 Scaglietti, and a yellow 360 Spider.

    Here's a photo I took of them at Flickr.

    They're not model geek-quality, but for ~$13 Canadian each, they're a lot nicer than the blister-packed 1/43 scale Ferraris Hot Wheels sold around 2 years ago. My only quibble is that, while they're on the older-style Ixo bases, there's no transparent plastic cube on top so I have to stack them in the boxes which are not the same thing as display cases.

    I checked a second Ottawa-area Toys R' Us today (Merivale Road, Nepean), but had no luck finding any more of the 1/43 scale Hot Wheels-branded Ixo Ferraris (maybe they were all sold out?). I guess I'll have to make a unanticipated trek to Gatineau, Quebec to visit the only other Toys R' Us in the Ottawa area (Greber near Mahoney).

    As for 1/64's, after a two-month-or-so dry spell in seeing new Ferraris anywhere, I was able to find both the Phil's Hot Wheels Garage 288 GTO and the mainline blue Ferrari P4. I still haven't found the 458 Italia anywhere.

    so far, nothing has been said about mix B, which is weird considering mix A came out half a year ago. I'm waiting for the 599GTB and the F40
