Had to go to Wal-Mart, needless to say check on cars while I was there. Low & Behold A NEW 2008 1/64. And surprise, surprise, surprise, it was yet another DE Jr AMP car. And Only the AMP, there must have been 20 or more on the pegs. This one is similar to the 2007 Pit Board. Has the same 1/64 AMP car with a square Sign with 88.

How many versions of the 1/64 DE Jr AMP car must we endure?

At least 10-15 is my guess. I am already done with them. I have the hood and the Daytona 500 hood. Let's count what we have already (Winner's Circle only)...

Standard Hood - 1
Daytona 500 hood - 2
4 Car Bowtie set - 3
2 Car Daytona 500 set - 4
and the one you just found - 5

Maybe my 10-15 guess is low!!!! Action has to make back that 60 million they lost last year somehow!!!

i think that 10-15 is a low number, and in the process they will lose about the same amount again.

It would have been nice if the batch had the 88 National Guard like the Daytona 500. Sorry about the Coast Guard Error

I was just counting 1/64's, but I did forget the one's with the base. That makes 6 versions that have actually been seen so far.

You know, I am a Jr. fan, and I think that trinket looks like a big green turd.

anyone have a link to an 08 checklist? About the junior cars, whoever paid big bucks for them is getting screwed with all the rereleases(I don't really care what the "trinket" is, only the car, unless it is really cool)

WC hasn't even released a correct 06 checklist yet, and you want an 08 checklist. Now that's funny right there!!!

No prob. I do it too. I get to reading, and get carried away and answer what I am thinking before it sinks in.

I saw the "blob" car today and PASSED on it. Ugly ass trinket and looks like it was the only one in the case because there were 12 of them on the pegs. Can you say overkill already?????

Spool,

Was this a new case of WC's(what were they?), or just another case of Jr ones?

Jrs cars will become this years version of the Gordon Dupont/ Pepsi releases with the same trinkets within the same waves. but i think it will be worse than Gordon double releases.
