I HAVE SEARCHED TARGET, WAL-MART, TOYS R US, K-MART, SUPERMARKETS....ANYWHERE THAT SELLS HOT WHEELS, AND I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIND ONE OF THEM!!!! I have been searching for almost 5 months, and it is starting to get on my nerves. I ask you for HELP!!!!! Please, Please-I would really appreciate it.

The problem is probably the dreaded Toy Scalpers!

They know when shipments come in and most of the time they know a guy that works at the store and they buy up all the hot new releases before it ever hits the shelves. If they don't know an employee, then they sure do know when shipments arrive and are placed on shelves and the toys are snatched up right away.

They will even take a toy out of a kids hand (i've seen it before).

The only SURE way right now is eBay. if you don't want to pay 2000% more then retail, then the only thing I know is wait and wait and wait until it is no longer a hot item and they start to collect dust on shelves.

I do feel your pain, if I had an extra, I would send it to you.

Grocery stores and supermarkets at the checkout lane. Its the only place toy scalpers really fail to look. I've gotten lucky many times.
