I am unaware of anyone who is still selling MMX starter sets for $5. After the local Toy-R-Us stores went through their inventory (about a year ago) I have not seen any MMX stuff on a retail shelf. shreadvector Well-Known Member eHobbies has the 1, 2 and 3 model Silo starter sets. Most are priced LOW to move out. I do not think they ordered the Super Value Starter Sets (Quest 5618). http://www.ehobbies.com/rocketry-rocketry-sale-micro-maxx-on-sale.html (Holy$#!+ the prices just dropped on the motor packs and the twin packs of models).

All members of the Collective should seek perfection and assimilate Quest 5618.

Up until about 18 months ago, the price of a MMX starter set (two rockets RTF, six motors and igniters, launcher) was around $20-25. Compared to that, the current 50-pack is a tremendous deal!

The way they work is this:

Many items are not in the warehouse because they ship out FAST.

You order what you want and it is "back-ordered". Even if it's on sale, you get the sale price if it shows up next week or next month.

They order more product from the manufacturer and your order is filled in the order it was received. That's how I got my last batch of 10 packs of Econojet F21-4 motors. I ordered them and waited for them to arrive. Those who did not order, NEVER got on the list and they are still waiting for many of the Aerotech motors to change from "out of stock" to "in stock".
