Ollie's

Postby GLMFAA1 on Thu Feb 17, 2011 9:54 pm

My local paper had an 'Ollie's' ad insert that listed a sale of Lindberg kits, Story was that a fire in a LA warehouse smoke damaged these kits, Listed were Crown Vic plain, F11 Tiger, Display cases, 53 Ford conv, the Dodge p/u monster truck, the large Hemi engines. Hopefully there's one near you

I noticed 'code adam' on the door and the shopping carts are old wallymart. I was just wondering if it's not a long lost cousin who gets the hand me downs, O if only the motormax would show up.

My Ollie's has a Lot of OLD W-M carts too
They buy ALL second hand, Fixtures etc, Not just merchandise!!!!

And as far as I know, W-M's "Code-Adam" is in MANY Other stores too
I I think Targer uses that Missing/Lost child code too.
It is in rememberance of Adam Walsh

W-M May have been the First to use the code, But Most have adopted it.

Yea, I would like to see the Motormas there too

Mine had some 1/25 scale Bobcatlike diecast skidsteer loaders & scrapers and a
few JADA Speedracer plastic kits, but No other 1/24-1/25
scale diecast or kits.

I was in my area "Ollie's" Saturday
Besides the kits in the sales flyer, They had the Pace car & hardtop 53 Ford
Washington Mint Diecast 71 Hemi Cuda in Sublime/Sassy Grass green & Panther Pink,
67 Charger in black ($16.oo Each)
37 Cord ex Pyro kit, 48 Lincoln -ex Pyro kit
32 Ford Street Pick Up (Last issue B Utility Sloop rod)
34 Roadster Pick up
Chrysler Atlantic Concept.
Thom Taylor Xtreme Custom Cruiser Beach Reacher kit & Chezoom* ready built ($13.oo)
Plastic & Diecast 1/4 scale 426 Hemi ($20.oo each)
48 Ford Flathead Diecast Kit & ready built (13.oo)

Sadly The 1/32 scale kits were the same price as the 1/25 kits $8.oo!!
I expected them to be less
They had the 40 Ford convertible, 34 Ford 3 window, 32 B Roadster, & 23 T Street Rod
They had 2 different Weird-Ohs 'Wade A. Minut' & Endsville Eddie
I did not look at the price on these
Aircraft included F4F Phanto Battle Damaged
F86A Sabre
F11F Tiger
XFY-100 VTO "Pogo"
Junkers JU88

They also had ONE 1/8 scale Bobtail T $40.oo
a few Blue Devil Destroyer (Ready for R/C) $50.oo
and a couple USS Yorktown $20.oo I think
But these 3 are VERY LARGE Kits!!!! Yourtown being 32 inches, Blue Devil 3 ft even
& the Bobtail box is about 2 ft by 3 ft!!!!

If anyone is interested in something let me know.
I need to make some $$ to repair or replace my Primary PC

I forgot,
They had an Antique Pistol kit & a Flintlock type Rifle kit too I think these are Full size replicas, a Pirate ship
and some Dinosaurs

Resurrecting this thread.

Ollie's just made another big model buyout, mainly Lindberg/Revell/AMT kits. Found the Revell Dodge Ram VTS ($7.99), Lindberg ALF 900 series open cab pumper ($7.99), and the Lindberg L-700 tanker ($19.99) at the Mt. Sterling, KY store. They also had the Robert E Lee steam boat, a North Atlantic fishing boat, and some planes.

Just wish Lindberg had made the Ford C-800 instead of the Dodge L-700, I'm running out of build ideas for the L-700s.
