Ahh, $5 and $6 wallyworld specials. Those were the days.
Those "specials" were the result of AMT/Ertl management producing (WAYYY overproducing!) those kits back in the late 1990's. At one point, AMT/Ertl discovered they had over a million unsold model car kits bulging the walls out of their warehouses in China. That's why the blowout prices. I heard the long, convoluted story of how that came about (several AMT Ertl execs got the axe for that!)
Trust me, that mistake is not likely to be repeated!

got a call from a walmart mgr yesterday(guess HQ of walmart passed on my email). She told me that the stores in st louis would not be getting model kits. She said all the shelf space had been set for the holiday season.
Well, Steve, I guess we're just gonna have to meet in St. Charles then. Like I said earlier, the WM here in Troy has a model section but the selection is Pfft! I MAY buy basic paints if it's something like 11:30 at night and I NEED a color but, other than that MTH (that would be our LHS for those not in the St. Louis area and points west), here I come!

Nothing here in the Phoenix area.
There are a few locations on my side of town that have models, Surprise and El Mirage, and I think the Goodyear location as well

Where are the kits located exactly? I assume somewhere in toys, and from one picture here they look to be near the bike stuff. I've heard that the kits are going in about 500 stores, so not every store will have them. I haven't seen them in the two stores near me...Somers (Kenosha) and Racine, Wisconsin. I'm not a regular Wal-Mart shopper, but I hope this does well (and is profitable for all the companies involved) because this hobby needs more mainstream exposure. Hopefully the Revell contest with Stacy David will continue too and there will be in-store promotion like there was at Hobby Lobby.
Nice to see that Walmart in the photo stocks a nice line of Model Rockets as well as the styrene kits and accessories. Model rocketry is another hobby of mine. Very hard to find any Walmarts in our area here in PA that stock either. Thank god for the internet or wed be up S)#% creek without a paddle lol.
