Get the Power of American Steel at Walmart!

By Gary Barnum

 

 

The first mass-produced cars in America began to roll out of Detroit right about the turn of the century (1900, not 2000). But it appears the automobile production really accelerated in the mid-century with heavy-duty steel vehicles. Today, estimates put the number of cars produced in Michigan close to two million! We pay homage to some of the many classics with our American Steel series at Walmart.

 

These editions really highlight some of the muscle behind American Steel, and it seems like everyone has a favorite or, most likely, favorites. If you’re strong enough, you can pull these favorites out of your local Walmart beginning in December.

You would think they would just fix this issue.  It's simple  database management, but by all means, don't let that stop you from taking longer than a week to fix it.

Give them a call then and tell them to hurry.

I had sent an email into customer service last week. They said when the full IT staff comes back on the 6th they'd get looking into it.  All RLC accounts got converted into Spectraflame accounts. You can see that when you click on the Forums tab, and on the "fork in the road" screen, click on your account name (with the avatar)  for the forums, not the one saying your first name. Your page should have Spectraflame written in it.

Not here to argue... as soon as the accounts are reactivated everything should be okie dokie

 

You may not be here to argue, but arguing is the majority of what Taz does on the boards. And since they're down now, he's got nothing else to do. lol

Wrong answer, call customer service give them your RLC number which has been deactivated automatically as of January 1st .

 

Costumer service gives wrong info all the time. I am still showing as an rlc member. Active. Just bought rlc only item from the shop to make sure that work. I knew it would. We are only locked out of the forum side. Our accounts are not deactivated. U can see that just by poking around the site urself

And u can tell it's not just the normal deactivation, end of the year, time to renew, thing because it also says not an hwc member. If accounts were deactivated I wouldn't be able to buy something right now. And I did. It's only the forums. Even if there was a sale we would be able to access that and buy.

 I do spend a lot of time talking with other members, and sharing information.

it is not my fault people quote me when they disagree with me.,

 for the record.

I'm not the one  that said wrong answere.. just because the information shared was a lil, different then the other persons.

nor did I say any one could not do something, even tho they never said they could.

 

just like it is not my fault when some one comes along and pokes me with a stick.

If you haven't tried to get into the forums lately, try now. When you click on FORUMS in the top tab, at least with mine, it didn't show NOT an HWC/NOT an RLC member blah blah. It was kind of blank. I then clicked on Forums at the left and BAM, there they were!

Wal-Mart has so many strikes against it as a retailer for collectibles. 9 out of 10 stores are a total dump with bare pegs and shelves. 
I finally found this set but the cards were so mangled I didn’t bother to buy them. Shameful.
