We have received notification from ERTL that the “435” Toy will be the last Award replica available through the Two-Cylinder Club. Licensed overseas manufacturing facilities will no longer set up production lines for exceptionally limited toys unless a minimum quantity is met. Two-Cylinder recognizes that over-producing toys with a limited buying market will only cause the collector value to decline. With that in mind, it has been determined that the “435” Industrial Yellow Toy will be the last Award version from the two-cylinder era. Also, please bear in mind that the 4000 Low-Profile Award Toy is the last Award version from the New Generation Era. As in most cases, when a product line is discontinued, the demand increases as those who have not purchased these units suddenly realize the need to complete their collection. The 4000 Low-Profile Show Toy is also 90% sold out while Award units are about 70% sold out.
