Sometimes you don’t think too much about what you found. You just find it, enjoy it, and move on. That happened several years ago when I came across a dump bin at a rural Kmart and pulled not one, not two, but seven Super Ford Focus (Focii?). It was there, and I enjoyed the find. Obviously I remember it.
That happened today. Actually, a bit of a strange find, but a new kind of find for me. I stopped off at a Walmart after lunch, checked the diecast aisle, and looked up at this:
5 cases of M2. One opened and four sealed. I asked the toy manager if I could have a look, and she told me to go for it, and that were two others as well. Seven cases!?! I usually only see one per store.
So, I did what any collector would do. I opened all of them. Most were Edelbrock, and a couple were Auto-Trucks. Out of the seven cases? A ton of cool models, and four chases.
I put all the cases back up on the top shelf, went and thanked the toy manager – she was happy I found a few models to buy – and went on my way. I doubt I will see that again. File it under unique find experiences.
