Mike,
What series of Johnny Lightnings are you looking for??? The Mustang Illustrateds, the Monopoly mustangs, or the Pro Collector Series? We have several and have managed to get all the Mustang Illustrated J/L's. We even have a few doubles.

Great. Still no '68 Coupe. I guess I'll have to finish my custom Hot Wheel project.

I found a pro series Shinoda 94 Boss today at Wally's. I also picked up the PHR Hotwheels Cougar too. They came out with a PEZ series of cars,but I didn't notice any Fords.

Either I'm blind or it's on another page. Where did you get 24 from?

It says it on the front of the package,on the left in small print. They didn't list all the models they will offer though. I'd expect the second release in March/April.

J/L likes to do series of cars and will release four to six cars over time.
Also, check out the J/L Mustang Illustrated series.

Mike,
We made it to Hobby Lobby today and bought all six of the Mustangs in this series! I took us longer to find where the J/L's were in the store, than it took to buy them.

If anyone wants a set, there are still plenty at our local Hobby Lobby. E-mail us and we will see what we can do.

I also spotted these at hobby lobby. I found 4 of the 6. I need the 66 and the Boss 302. I may shoot you an email Dave.

Also, does anyone else have the 6 car set "Monster Mustangs", also from J/L?

I haven't come across any of the monster mustangs. But that does not mean that they don't exist. I do need to go back to Hobby Lobby since they have put away all the Chritsmas stuff and will have pulled all the J/L's back out.

No problem on the e-mail and pickup of needed cars.

I wasn't saying that they don't exist, because I know for a fact they do, because the 6 car package deal is hanging on my wall.
I was just wondering if anyone else came across this deal.

It consists of:
66 Shelby GT350
68 Shelby GT350
65 Convertable
67 Shelby GT350
68 GTA
73 Mach 1

I got mine at Toys R Us for 17.99!

Sounds like you are talking about the Mustang Illustrated Series that J/L did. If you are, I have all 24 of them. Took a little work and some help from E-bay to get them all together.

no, I think its just the six, but I could be wrong. They say "monster mustangs" on them, and all six came in one big package together. In the corner it says "A Toys 'R' Us exclusive". I've never seen another one.

If I send you a money order, could you get me the 66 and the Boss from this new series? They're are the only ones I'm missing of the first release.
I might send a pic of the monster mustangs too.

Should be no problem to pick them up for you. Don't send a money order yet. I should be able to get by Hobby Lobby Saturday and see if they have them. If they, do I will get both for you and we will work out payment and shipment via e-mail.

Bad news. Hobby Lobby was a bust. I could find four of the six cars in the series. Of course the two you are looking for were long gone. Terri told me I should have bought to full sets of the six mustangs. I should have listened to her then. Sorry that we couldn't get our hands on them for you. Keep checking around or hit E-bay. We will also keep looking for you.
