There has been already one listed on eBay. I don?t recall that the seller was asking a crazy price for it, but there was some markup over the original price.

These limited edition kits must be adding something to the Estes bottom line, else I don?t think they would continue to do them. I have yet to purchase any of them so far.

I'd like to think that it's just the Langfords doing their impression of the McLawhorns, releasing stuff for our nostalgia and not just for the bottom line, but you're probably right.

Everything Estes makes adds something to their bottom line, otherwise they wouldn't be in business.

That is strange, this morning they showed in stock again. Of course now it is showing out of stock.
