Quite a sight, right? Here is what it tells me:
- There are a few collectors who will have their pick of what Cars & Donuts they want.
- This will cause an unnecessary flurry of activity among collectors.
- Most importantly, there are a TON of Cars & Donuts out there.
Many of you have been concerned that you haven’t come across that many Cars & Donuts. And too bad too, because it is a fantastic mix, with two new castings. It seemed to hit a few big box stores briefly, as well as some Walgreens. And then nothing.
Well, this should help you understand what happened. It is all Japan Historics 2’s fault. JH2 hit the stores in a major way at the first of the year, and because of the price change, required retailers to change their pegs. That means no more space for the previous Car Culture mixes at the old price. That left Cars & Donuts in limbo, and my guess is a TON of them are sitting in warehouses waiting for homes. This clearance endcap at Target is one of those solutions.
So while I am speculating, I would think it isn’t time to fret. Just be patient. These models might appear at a store – like Target – near you.
Whatever the story, that is a great pic.
