The weathering on the fake wood siding really makes me chuckle.

I found one at my local Walmart yesterday - $1.18 + tax.   Its now happily sitting on my desk with my other little AMCs.

Tried for the last week but it seems either my Wal-Mart isn't stocking them or the earlybirds are picking them out when the store opens.

Thinking of buying them at Walmart. I did get one there on Saturday, I looked for others but came up empty. Might have had the same idea I had, buy every one in stock.
I did a search on ebay and found a bunch. Most about the same price my wife spent ordering me one from amazon last week.

I checked 3 Walmarts here, none to be found. I suspect Canada is not the top priority for getting new stock. I'm not paying inflated pricing so I'll just wait and keep checking Walmart for one.

Found another Matchbox Eagle at WallyWorld yesterday, so I grabbed it - but don't need it.   If anyone wants it, its available for cost plus postage.
