Whenever I feature Auto World cars, I get an influx of inquiries on where to buy them. Obviously Walmart and some Targets, but with a somewhat sporadic distribution, online hobby stores is a great way to go.
Especially now. Auto World and Johnny Lightning, both Round2 brands, have just released the first round of 2017 Hobby Exclusives. These will only be available at hobby stores, and mostly online. I am most interested in Auto World, and this is quite a batch, considering there are two exclusive releases of the very popular Ford GT40, including another take on the Gulf colors.
Back to that question on where to get them. I have been looking for a good online/eBay source, one that can partner with Lamley to get the word out on new product. And after looking around, I am happy to welcome SURPLUSgoodies aboard. You can find the new Hobby Exclusives at their store right now:
I am excited about this partnership, not only because they are great source for all the Auto World models, but because they order all the Hobby Exclusives, including the upcoming MiJo Exclusives. Even better, SURPLUSgoodies will be an exclusive US seller for Tarmac Works. The first models are on their way.
I will dive more into these AW Exclusives soon. For now, grab a set.
