    this cool die cast 58' vet model, the box was damaged so he let my son have it, he went with me when I went to make a payment this morning. there was no damage to any parts of the model, just the box is all. I just thought that was kinda cool of him. as you can see in one pic the new scorpion rock krawler I got him yesterday, so now he has the bigger jeep and the small scorpion too.

    I kept him home from school and he and I went to breakfast and the beach then to several toy stores. I let him pick out what ever he wanted so he got some superhero action figures and a rock krawler, we had a good day. I love my boy.

    That's pretty cool. And talk about good marketing.

    Cost of toy model = $25
    $ spent by future customer = $$$$$$$$$

    Can you take me shopping too:D. You know you're gonna have to go back to the store anyways to get yourself one of the crawlers. It looks way too new--time to cut the tires, pull the springs out, lengthen it, trim the belly, etc...

    Watch out for that little rock crawler. We got one for Tommy and the first day it stripped out the rear gears. Now it's only front wheel drive.:(

    yup thats how I ended up with my crawler how it is now:D. It actually still works pretty well. I just need to make a spacer--as in the write up--for the front gears, they slip now but aren't broken.
