  • Harvick, All-Star Galaxy finish...

    Hate to post an entirely new thread for this one - did anyone else get this car today? Want to know your thoughts.... but nothing about it says Galaxy finish to me. Maybe cause the drop out is white, but I am baffled by this one. It almost looks like a white drop out LC.

    I thought Lionel only offered Galaxy for black parts of scheme.

        Really strange. Factory issue/error with the paint drop out?

        Galaxy was discontinued. Only to be then offered for black schemes etc

        Unless it's due to the decal/wraps because white was the drop out for CC etc

          It’s defintely interesting. Nothing like an old Galaxy - I guess they shouldn’t have dropped out the white even though it was the dominant color.

          I got the door though, so at least there is that.

            that was my first thought... almost like it was packaged wrong and was actually the LC... glad Fred488 posted a pic to confirm I wasn’t going crazy.

              Galaxy color - and white is most likely the galaxy color part of the car.

                Yes Galaxy Color is what they do now and it goes on the predominant color in the car design. I like Galaxy Color white personally but much like Galaxy Black everyone has their own preference. I feel it is a mix between standard metallic and flashcoat on the white especially.

                    Correct... when the listings say galaxy now, that is what they mean. Galaxy Color, and which ever the drop is, is the color with the finish treatment.

                      Ahh, got it. Thanks for the clarification all. In that case, I miss the OG Galaxy.

                          Standard metallic flake with flake on steroids. It is very nice depending on the car its on. For Dale Jr's Halo it was like having a star sky space them to it. Really neat.
