Yesterday I ordered a Silver Solstice Model from Solstice Stuff.
http://www.solsticestuff.com/catalog/
Click on Merchandise on the upper right to see the model.
When it arrives I'll let the forum know my opinion of it.
Anyone have this and if so is it a good replica and a quality item. Hopefully!

Here's the same thing for more than $10 less ($17.99, same scale), although only in dark green for now. I suspect this is where SolStuff is getting them.

this is the same one that we were given at the Detroit party. It is pretty cute, very realistic. The girl that handed one to us told us to go home and put it in a tub of water and watch it grow to full size :lol:

...my preference

I have only seen the pics of course, but to me the Maisto model I cite above looks better than the one from Solstice Stuff. Maybe it's just the color or the bigger pic. They may be the same car, but Maisto isn't marked up ten bucks yet. It doesn't start shipping til Nov, tho. Could it be they have been too busy sending the first ones to GM?

I purchased a model in Sly with 2 tone shortly after I ordered my car. The model pays great attention to detail, has a die-cast body (except front bumper), wheels that turn with the steering wheel and fully functional doors, hood and trunk. The wheels roll nice and it has a pretty nice engine bay and trunk. It was a great buy for me (around $20 including shipping off ebay) and I play with it daily while at work. It helps fill the void of not having one for real!

Since Mysterious is not offered in the model, mine goes out to the shop immediately to get repainted. Plus, has to have ebony leather seats, plus mud flaps. Then when I get that baby back, I'm gonna Zaino the crap outta it! It'll be the envy of all the 1/18th scale model cars!! :rolleyes:

Stopped into my dealership to check on my car and he had them in the parts department. Sold me one at cost $25.00 since I bought a car. My model and car are sly with two tone. I'm at 3100 as of 10/5. Any guesses on when I might see my car!

I went 3100 briefly last Wednesday and as of 10/5 I'm 3400.
