The last JL '91 GMC Syclone, which was a revision of the '98-'01 issued 1991 Syclone, was offered in 2005 or 2006 and more accurately looked like the actual Syclone. I have been on the hunt for this version for a long time; I may just have to buckle down and buy it on eBay (I like searching for diecast at car & toy shows - so far, no luck with this one).

If anyone has access to actual Johnny Lightning collector lists (not the online ones) from 2005 and 2006, I'd like to know what the Trucks & SUVs R3 (Release 3) contained. On JL's website I found every release for that series but R3, which is the one I believe has the '91 GMC Syclone I mentioned above. For reference, the Trucks & SUVs R2 was in August 2005, and Trucks & SUVs R4 was in February 2006 - but I can't find in the online archives when R3 came out.

On Wyatt's JLCollector site, this is Trucks and SUVs R3..


IIRC, I have most of these..

All the known variations of the Syclone are here.

I ran across the red one today, but didnt pick it up. JL has downgraded their cars to a Hot Wheels like package but still charging over $2 for each.

I think I saw a white one somewhere here lately too.
