They are a buck in the stores. What am I missing?

If you can find them in Walmart, more power to you.

There is actually a big difference in quality and detail between the grocery store $1 USD ones and the $6 USD-9 ones. The more expensive ones have much more movable detail and I would categorize them as a die cast scale model as opposed to a toy.

These are from the "Real Working Rigs" series, which has been OOP for two or three years now. As mentioned they are all large trucks, with working features and were originally in the $5 USD to $6 USD range in stores. They had a number of military vehicles in the line, too – Strykers and MRLVs, as I recall.
