    My friend and I have been searching all over to find out where this is from. It's a purple racing car with a "flight" mode. The underside says copyright 2000 Mattel. and nothing else. I apologize for the low quality pictures, I don't have my camera on me so I used my phone.

    I tried every single google combination of Purple, transforming, shifting, changing, mattel, 2000, car, racer, yellow, spy, mask like, and tons of others and still didn't come up with anything. I'm stumped, sorry.

    It's distressing to me how much this resembles the upcoming "Stealth Force" line. Hopefully there isn't some odd copyright that Hasbro is gona get sued over.

    Yeah, we had given up looking around until we saw the new stealth force line, we thought there might be a link. I don't think Hasbro will have any legal problems, if anything, stealth force resembles the M.A.S.K. toys.

    It's not from the old Nascar line is it? Looks like it could be.

    I don't think so. I tried searching around for that and still came up with nothing.

    After wading through metric shitloads of Hotwheels and Pixar's Cars toys I found them.

    Shogun Racers

    Looks like it was a brief Hotwheels spin off.

    A tad smaller than a deluxe class Transformer.

    No worries, It was one of those things that was going to bug me until it was solved.

    There's not a lot of info online about these. The only other thing I could find was this site:
    ƒzƒr￾[ƒTƒCƒh‰ß‹Ž‚̃gƒbƒv
    (scroll all the way down)

    Even the Hotwheels collector site and Wiki (yes, there's a HW wiki) have nothing on them.
