    I've looked in a couple of Toysrus and Walmart... no luck...

    Kijiji sells them for $5, while I believe their price should be $1.25 I think.

    I don't mind paying $5... but I would be much more grateful to know I bought at a regular price.

    I saw them at Walmart and Target in the states. I assume they’re anywhere hot wheels are sold, but you might need to wait a bit for stock to cycle through.

    I just kept looking. Finally a local Wal-mart had like 5 of them tossed about in bins. There for a few months they were nowhere to be found.

    Found a couple of Model X hot wheel cars at a local supermarket. I think they were $1 each.

    I kept looking at my local Walmarts (started feeling a bit like a Wal-Martian, I was in there so often), never found one. Finally broke down and bought one from eBay. Should be delivered today.

    I check the Hot Wheels rack every time I go to Target or Walmart, but I don't make trips to those stores just for Hot Wheels. I haven't found the Model 3 yet and will probably pay a premium on eBay if I don't find it by the end of the year.

    Just got my Model 3 Hot Wheels car this weekend. Actually not a bad rendition. The wheels stick a bit too far out, but other than that, I'm happy. The one I got had a pretty big paint chip on it. I sent a message to the seller, and he immediately sent out a replacement (5 stars to that seller!!). He didn't want the defective one back, so may try drilling the rivets out to separate the body and see what kind of a job I can do painting it black.

    Feel like a kid again, playing with model cars!!!

    I emailed Kyosho to make Tesla Model 3 in 1/64 scale.
    They are pricier but worth the price for the level of detail.

    Keep the one with the paint chip as is - it is authentic to the Model 3 delivery experience .

    Paint chips on Hot Wheels are "within spec." Some people collect Hot Wheels mistake cars.

    I happened to stumble upon one by accident in Walmart. I was going through all hot wheels hanging on the pegs, looking for a couple good ones for my kid. When I was ready to leave I looked down at the lower shelf and there was a Model 3 just sitting there. I grabbed it and was delighted to find it.

    Note: they also had a Roadster with Starman driving.
