The "Pre-Orders" for the 1:10 Cybertruck are already listed on eBay for as high as $5k. Even the 1:64 pre-orders are being listed for sale on eBay for around $50 right now. However, as of now, you can still order the 1:64 from Hot Wheels for the $20.Wow there's a waiting list for the RC Cybertruck too?! That's how popular the Cybertruck is.
Who's going to make the tracking spreadsheet? I bet when the 1:10 model starts being shipped we'll see it being flipped on Ebay for big markups.
Guess this was a marketing department decision and not every last decision goes all the way up to Elon. Still, the Cybertruck started as Elon's pet project and is his favorite model by far so I'm surprised at his reaction too.
So the Chief designer made a deal with Hot Wheels without Elon knowing about it????
