    My Monorail Mark I Blue Arrived Today!

    Better than Christmas.

    It was sitting on my desk when I got back from a meeting. It is gorgeous. I don't have a screwdriver so I haven't put the batteries in yet.

    Very happy with the purchase.

    Pics!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I'll try to get some pictures in next day or two.

    Looking at the DisneyDirect.com web-site, I don't see the Blue Monorail listed so I am assuming that they sold out of the LE of 500.

    That's awesome. Can't wait for pics!
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

    Hey! My Monorail Red is just as pretty!

    If I knew how to post pics I would...

    I'm clueless about the distinctions... is this the Mono with Golden Gate accessory? Or a totally different series?

    This is the Mark I Monorail that was sold by Disney Direct. It looks really nice. It's non-operational, but is highly detailed. The front headlights are really bright. For the red version, visit disneydirect.com and search for "monorail" or item # 95507. The blue one is sold out it seems, and was item # 95508. Both were $299.00 (red version limited to 1959 units, blue version limited to 500 units). Even though the blue version was more limited, I liked the red one better, so I ended up picking up that one. Mine arrived yesterday!

    Thanks... looks like another brilliant attempt to separate me from my money!

    I recieved mine damaged, the Winshield was loose as well a seat inside. I got the Red. I hope that the Red one 's are not sold out. Disney Direct sent me a Return Label. The outside Box was fine. They didn't check it before it left.
    I really wanted this, soon.
