Question  - Sorry been away for a long time..But is there a reason why these are so hard to find anymore on ebay?  I would've though they would be a dime a dozen since it was available to all.  Unfortunately I missed this being away from the hobby for quite some time...

When the promotion was available, I assumed that there was nothing special about the car on offer; that it would be available for purchase later on.  So I passed on it.  I also think that because Cars collecting has been on a decline, and Kmart itself has been in decline as well, not many people bothered.  Maybe I will regret that decision, but we may still yet see Precision Series Fabulous LMQ.

I think PCC nailed it.  And most hardcore collectors only needed a couple/few Cars from that case.
So unless they were planning on flipping them.  Not a lot of incentive to get multiples.

Maybe when Kmart goes belly up they'll end up at stores to be liquidated. (One can dream 😉.)

I was convinced it was going to be released on Walmart/Amazon since there were listings of it. I think I may also play a part in convincing people to not bother with the mail in promo, haha

The only two "new" Cars from their "special" Case were Lil Torquey Pistons and Tow Cap iirc, and both of those have since been released elsewhere. The promo never really felt like a promo to me

Found one of these at T.J. Maxx last week. Anyone interested might want to check at their local store.
