No guys I dont have one but I wish I did. I went to Toys R Us today and saw them going for 40 dollars. Seems sort of steep but only 5K made. I saw it in black looks nice. The tires and rims looked fine to me. What do you guys think I need some advising. I know I cant afford it but since its in the store not too far from me its a reality.

I have the Anson one, which I am sure this Ertl is based on it. It seems a bit steep for $40 if Ertl just re-package it in a new box. Also, if I remember correctly, I read somewhere that it was not 1:18 scale but more like 1:19.X

It is steep when you consider that it is simply an Anson re-boxed in an Ertl box. They didn't even change the color. Check this link to an eBay auction (no.. it is not mine.) or just go to eBay and search on "Anson Escalade" and you will find the exact same truck for much less.

This auction starts at $15.99 and Buy it now at $16.99

Whats the deal with TRU pricing on Ertl models :confused

Did they pay regular retail and inorder to recoup their monies, they are now having to raise the price to almost double of what an Ertl is really worth :badidea

I don't get it :confused

I was looking at some of the Ertl Corvettes going for $39.99, and I know I must have looked at the car for a total of 20 minutes trying to figure out was worth $40 about it, I couldn't figure it out.

You might want to hold out for the Ricko model. I've got a pre-production version of the thing and it's pretty sweet; it's carpeted, the seats tilt (and there's a third-row fold-down jump seat inside, too) has a spring-loaded suspension, and everything opens up.



Definitely worth a look see, if you can hold out for a month or so, in my opinion! And it should go really well with their CTS-V and Sixteen.

Love dem Caddys!

Thanks for the info, Ricko sounds like they have a better approach to these Cadillacs from the looks of it. :cheers

What about the CTS-V? Good detail? and the Sixteen? :cheers
Yeah - the pre-pro I saw at NY was pretty sweet, and looked a whole lot like a real CTS (I have a non-V '03), but was still in the tweaking phase for door fitment and nuts and bolts stuff like that. Nice looking model, though. I think they're doing just the black and silver. Hope they do a V6, non-V version as well.

The Sixteen was amazing, too, and was right alongside the CTS-V for tweaks. I'm hoping those guys keep me in mind when press samples come in. Should be really soon.

And wait 'til you see that '61 Lincoln they're tooling up - OMG..... :cool1
