    No purple blanket for this one
    *insert pickup pun*

    Grabbed the cars at Walmart. Was hoping to find one of the more recent store exclusive sets, found the elusive Power Wagon (which brings me up to 9/10 of that set) and some cool M2 Machines instead (In classic M2 Machines style, one of the Nissan's mirrors is slightly not existing and the front axle is broken. Still in better shape than most of them... $7 for these things and they always have quality issues...)

    Got the vinyl at the book store after, figured I'd throw it in.

    (Yes, that's some of my HW collection in the two bins in the background)

    Edit: The black Plymouth's doors and hood weren't closing. Took it apart and loosened some screws, things close now. Mostly.

    Purple shirt instead of a purple blanket now. I've been wanting some M2 trucks (especially tow trucks) for awhile, these are my first aside from 3 auto haulers. In true M2 fashion, the wheel axels on both are bent badly and the steering wheel in the Dodge is nearly perpendicular to where it should be and the Ford has 3 Goodyear tires and 1 blackwall.

    Went to try and find the new HW Larry Wood set, as usual the pegs were virtually empty. Can't find anything in stores anymore...

    For anyone wondering why I am always complaining about my local stores stock. This is everything 1/64th scale at a Target I stopped at this morning, for all brands (except for HW 5 packs, which are sneaking into the shot anyway).
    I have a long daily commute and my area was more or less unaffected by the Kmart closures, which means I have access to a lot of Targets/Walmarts/Kmarts. About 5 of each. Sights like this are fairly typical at all of them. No HW premium or special lines, only 1 store has M2 machines, no other brands anywhere at all, maybe 1 shipment of each case a couple months after they hit everywhere else.

    (Almost all of those are throwback Boneshakers. There was a lot more than that until recently, those were mega peg warmers but everything else in the line sold as soon as they got the shipments in)

    Went to Walmart. Baren shelves as always but they had 5 Series 2 mystery machines. Checked the # and picked them all up, one of them was the Manfred F1 indy car ;)

    Went to Walmart today for some random stuff, stopped in the toy section. A couple days ago I got the HW 2019 Mystery models series 2 car # 4,5,9,10 and 12. Hoped to find the other non-chase ones today (employees at all the stores on the island snatch the good stuff usually, so I don't bother hoping for them. This isn't me being cynical either, they will openly admit it sometimes...)

    There was a guy already there. Of course it's kinda sad that he probably got the good stuff, but he only walked away with 2 mystery cars since these stores just don't stock much. We were talking for a couple minutes, it's nice that most people in this hobby are nice people. Anyway, I picked up #6,7,8. Which are the cool ones, so that's nice. Still missing the Datsun though.

    While the other guy was looking through the mysery models I looked through Matchbox and M2 to kill time. Picked up the M2 1960 Chrysler 300F just because it's so weird. The passenger door on it doesn't close and the headlights are in bad condition for anyone wondering what the mandatory quality issue is on this one. I would love it if Mattel replaced Matchbox with an M2/Autoworld/Greenlight competitor
    -_-

    Edit: Just looked at the lineup for series 3. There's a bluebird, so that'll be ransacked well. Happy to see a cruise bruiser there, that's one of my favorite unappreciated castings. It seems like they are using better castings for mystery models, they use to use mostly the older worn out toolings from my experience.
