Certainly not one of the better designs over the years. It's like the person doing the designing stopped about midway through the project and rushed it into production.
Even if you can get past all the stark white-space on the boxcar, the $85 price tag is a deal-breaker for me. These kinds of boxcars don't even sell for $25 in the aftermarket at train shows. So why even think about spending $85? Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
In prior years, Macy's offered all kinds of coupons, free shipping, and promo codes that got these gems into your hands for under $40 easily. But that never happened in 2018. So it's no surprise they still have these in inventory.
I don't collect cars like that, it's like collecting some of the York show cars. I love the York show, but you can buy the cars on the secondary market for around $10! And, those are top quality MTH Premier boxcars. I have about twenty of them in a large box that I'm going to paint for a unit train. I know someone paid a ton more than the $10 I did for them.
