Well I went to all the stores that they have listed under their "PURCHASE ONLINE" section, and none of the stores have it. I sent an email to maistro customer service to see what they suggest.

I would suggest calling one of the distributors to see if they could put you on a list to call when they come available.

Some of us early buyers were given all sorts of grief for paying a 3% to 10% premium, Wow, you are an idiot 1580% :2:

(Just kidding)

Well not sure how much help they were at Maisto. Below I have copied the email they sent back to me.

Dear Sir/Madam,

You may locate the item you are inquiring at your local Walmart Stores. Thank you for your interest in Maisto products.

Sincerely,

Customer Service


I checked the Walmart.com site out and did not find it there. Maybe it is only in the physical (B&M) stores. If anyone finds them, can you please post.

I went to all of the distributor sites listed on Kemo's site and found no mention of the Pilot diecast. This only goes to prove how ahead of events we are on this forum. Kemo found it before the manufacturer even shipped it.

Kudos Kemo!!! :18:

Maisto in Fontana?

I just realized that my brother lives about 1/2 mile from the Maisto company headquarters in Fontana, CA. In fact, I purchased my Pilot about 10 miles from there. Next time I go to visit him I'll try to give the place a visit and see if I can't fanagle a Pilot from them in SBP. What do you think?

By definition, only Redrock Pearl is actually a rock. Therefore, only Redrock Pearl can be the one that rocks.

I called up Walmart - both the local store and their headquarters and they have advised that my local store does not stock it. When I asked them if they could order it for me, they checked with Maisto and it turns out that these are what they call "toys" and are actually sold in assortments - ie random packs of about 24 or more and that the models included in each assortment are random. As such they could not order them for me since they cannot guarantee that I would get the Pilot. This would suggest that this particular model is different from the one that Kemo got from eBay.

I called up Maisto to see if this (being unable to order individually) was correct and they confirmed that this was indeed the case. They added that the Honda Pilot is a 'hot' item and that they were hard to get. Hmmm demand greater than supply for the Honda Pilot - now that's hardly news to us right ? :p

Anyway, if anyone does find one in their local Walmart, can you please post. Thanks.

Costco?

Seemsd like something they would sell at Costco. I'll have to check this weekend.

When we find them we should buy extras..for those that can't get them.
