    Has anyone spotted these in the wild yet?

    Yesterday morning, I asked our Wal-Mart Toy Mangler if she knew anything about the Greenlight 5-pack of Volkswagen’s, but she gave me the deer in the headlights look for about 10 seconds, thought about it for a little longer, pointed at the green “Exclusive Vehicle” badge on a Cars package, and asked if that’s what I meant. So I yelled out, “RAMPART! RAMPART! I need some life support over here!!!!”.

    Love that last Beetle!

    Still cannot believe they didn’t have 4 Beetles crossing Abbey Road in “Cars 2”. 🙁

    Hmmm… Perhaps not so impressive after all. The castings represent a Deluxe Microbus, but the “skylight” windows around the perimiter of the roof are painted over (as is the “canvas” sunroof). There weren’t that many Deluxes sold in the US, making them unlikely to be seen in “hippie van” usage, and even if they had been, why would anyone paint out the overhead windows? I can see why someone might have painted over all of them (i.e.,”if this van’s rockin’…”), but not just the overheads.

    Of course, I was barely a year old during the “Summer of Love,” so what do I know?

    The panel van at least appears to be correct, and the Beetles look good, too.
