I've got two of the silver ones with the RoughRider tires, two brown ones, a black one with the grill altered and the Jeep name removed, and a blue one that was sold in Mexico.
Do we know if that one there is a regular release? I'll need to hunt it down.

I have a silver one with black top. It has 1982 stamped on the bottom.

All of them that I have seen have a metal flake paint job which seems more appropriate for a power boat than a Scrambler.

I think I have about 100 matchbox/hotwheels jeeps. Most are older ones that I paid too much for on Ebay. They're normally displayed in racks designed to hold blister packs, but right not they're still boxed up from the move. I also have one extra scrambler that I have cut the hard top off and am trying to modify and paint to match mine.

Have a blue one for my son (age 3).

But this new release looks even better with more detail. Not crazy about the wheels, but I'm sure I'll stock up.

I work for a major Midwest retailer who carries Hot Wheels, and the Scrambler is coming out in a May (timeframe) assortment of vehicles. I'm going to see if I can get ahold of a couple of them once they're available.

Finally found some!

I have been keeping my eye out for the Hot Wheels Jeep Scrambler for a while now.

Well, the wife came home with three of them today. The store was just stocked and she bought the three they had. One is for my daughter, another for my son, and the last one for my godson. I am still going to look for a few more, as I would like to paint up a few customs.

Has anybody else found them in their area yet?

I picked up a case of 12 Scramblers not long ago...benefits of working at a retailer who carries them. :D I have yet to see them in a store, though.
