Wild Blue: RLC Exclusive sELECTIONs ’41 Willys Gasser!

By Gary Barnum

 

Where did it come from? Released for the first time only last year, the ’41 Willys Gasser became the edition of choice by RLC members for our RLC sELECTIONs series. Pre-order yours beginning August 25, 2020, and remember – there are no purchase limits on this item.

 

Besides the opening hood casting, members voted for a few details. You chose Spectraflame ice blue, a vintage drag racing deco theme, and Real Riders 5-spoke mag wheels for the front with Real Riders 5-spoke mag cheater wheels on the rear. HWC Van took your details and created this masterpiece! Better hang it in your collection.

 

Please note: Orders will be taken for approximately one week, and we will produce enough quantities to match the number of orders we receive – every RLC member should have the opportunity to order and receive one. This means the item is made-to-order; made-to-order items may not reach you for approximately one (1) year after placing your order. Your method of payment will be charged on the date you make your made-to-order purchase.

Will there really be Reward Points?

 

Everyone says that there are never reward points on sELECTIONS models.

 

Just like what is written above, last year's article also said Reward Points, but none were given:

 

If none are to be given, please remove them from the above description.   (And feel free to delete this post too)

Thanks.

There's no rewards points for sELECTIONS, I wonder how last year's article stayed there saying people would get 20 reward points, the same way as it's misleading this year. 🤔

It says individually numbered. That's great, not like the gold Gasser from last year. Thanks RLC for going back to that!

YES, agree with those above:

 * will there be rewards points?

 * will this release be numbered?

I will order regardless, but please confirm/clarify.  Expectations are key in almost every transaction.

Yes please clear this up, if no reward point then remove it or just do not include it in the first place. This is false advertising, stating what a customer gets and then redacting it apon completed sale. 

Yet they are now charging you when the order is placed instead of when the order is shipped.  Reward points would be very nice seeing as getting somthing on sale days has not been very successful for me this year.

This IS a beautiful car!  I hope the headers are turned, like they were on the '55 Gasser.

I'll order a BUNCH... & have to open one.

There won’t be rewards points, they’ll literally be giving away cars for free at the end of the year.

Note that this year you have to pay up front... I imagine to slow down the guys that ordered a few hundred, presold them, collected the money for a year, and then paid Mattel.  

 

Also nice to see they are individually numbering them.  Regardless of how many are made, it is nice to know.

They are just pre selling them ahead of time. There are a ton on ebay right now. No one is asking a $150 this time though...😂

Charging these from day one might keep the guys who want to buy 100 to think again, wow $2500 upfront from 1 member.

I'm still in for 2!

I'll buy a couple, but I don't expect them to be numbered or come with Rewards Points.

JUST to confirm...

sELECTIONs Willys Gasser will NOT be numbered. As noted, these cars are never shipped in numbered packaging. 

 

But we ARE allowing Reward Points for this sale. That one is not a typo. 🙂

Can I use my $24.99 promo code that I was sent due to the Mustang situation that I still haven't used yet?
