I didn't pick it up today, but this Maisto 10 pack caught my eye at Walmart this morning. It contains what looks like a vintage Mercedes Sprinter tow truck! I haven't seen it before, has anybody else? Worth going back for?

I want to say that someone showed a picture of this Maisto Mercedes tow truck in another thread - I have yet to see it in stores and not sure I want to buy the multi pack just to get one model.

From that angle it looks more like a 407D (1977-1995) - the "Sprinter" of that era. Awesome - love that tow bar thing.

I actually posted it a while ago. I bought a set for a child's birthday, removed the Mercedes tower as it was the only thing new in the set, and replaced it with a singular new Maisto Fresh Metal truck and resealed the box!

Thank you - I knew I had seen something about it posted before :wave:

The black one was featured as Car Of The Day last year: http://swiftysgarage.net/topic/9042368/1/

I found a white/blue version in 2016, but I haven't seen another since.

Mh, overall nice thing ...but would be much more awesome if they had not made the front generic.

But nevertheless a cute thing...

Here is the real one...
