In Topic: New kits with flaws.

Have you tried to get into Wal-Mart ?( I'm not trying to say it like a smartass) , but really try to get your kits on Wal-Mart Shelves?

Oh, I think thats a direction Mobius should be REAL careful about.  I am also on a board with a guy who was a player in a company called 21st Century Toys who put out pre-painted 1:18 and 1:32 scale fighter planes/kits.  Great reviews.  Walmart then froze them out when they tried expanding to other store chains (about 2007).  Just about killed the company.  Dealing with WM is truly like making a deal with the devil.

The last one I've seen in the flesh (metal) was about 8-9 years ago.  The guy had dropped a Chevy 350 in it.  Well, it DID move out of its way.  And I once saw two at Sears Point in the summer of 1981 beat an RX-7 back when the RX was a thing.  Convoluted history-was it a VW, an Audi, or a Porsche?

A situation so horrible that we all thanked God when the Italians came in and saved the day!   :rolleyes:   Things you thought you'd never see in life!

 

Remember that Cerberus main mission is to rob and plunder.   There was a story on news shows (maybe it was 60 MInutes?) about their purchase of an old line store chain called Merv's on the west coast.  They bought the profitable chain, which had employed people for their entire careers.. so what happens?  Cerberus realized that since the chain was so established and old school that they outright owned all their store locations. Prime real estate.  And the sum of which was worth more than they paid for the chain.  So they shut down the chain, fired thousands of people and sold the properties for a profit.   Chrysler got off easy!

Mervyns. And now they are the new owners of the Safeway chain of grocery stores.  Oyy and Oyy.

This is what happens when a guy who sells refrigerators decides he understands the car industry.

Or a capital investment firm thinks it knows how to build cars-Cerberus Capital Management and Chrysler.  Oyyy
