Jeremy,
We just got release two last week. Check out the Johnny Lightning web site at www.playingmantis.com for updates. I'm guessing we will see release three in June.

I don't know how, but we had release 2 before 1. I finally picked up release 1 last week.

I don't know how you managed to do that either. But you do have the first two sets and that is a good thing.

I was kinda disappointed to see that the 2nd release were just repaints of the 1st release. The way the web site read it was going to be 24 new castings, not 12 new castings and 12 new paint jobs .

Okay, my brain was not working when I first posted this topic. I noticed last night that of the first two releases, there are only 12 cars. So, I am going to assume that there will be 12 more coming out this year to make 24 as stated on the back of the package.

Well, I don't have to assume. Here is the official notice...

I'm hoping for a 68 coupe so I can scrap my Hot Wheels "kit bash" project. I keep breaking A pillars!

Since we are all looking for the next release, it might be a good idea to look out for each other. So far, we have lucked into all six each time they have been released. I hate the idea of paying more these cars. So lets keep each other posted on who needs what.

Let me know what you guys/gals are looing for. One of the stores here in town received another shipment of series 1 & 2. If you need any of those let me know. Otherwise, when they get series 3 I'll buy all they have and then see who needs them here.

Jeremy,
Sounds good to me. I have all of release 1 & 2. So we are all waiting on release 3.

Good deal. I figure if I dont get'em while they are hanging they might not be there when I go back.

BTW, has anyone seen the remote control Muscle Machines? I have seen the Charger but not a Mustang. I wonder if it is available.

I have all of 1 and 2. I also have been buying up all the Boss 302's I see!

That's a good idea,Dave! I have good luck up here. I do have to fight with the old men first thing in the morning to get them,though!
