Thanks to Break of the boards at TF @ The Moon for the following:
Just thought I'd point out that it's a slot car race track, not a train set.
Sounds quite nifty though.
sounds waaaaay cool. For kids.........(like me) ^_^
That does sound pretty sweet.
You know, I knew that since I posted the original story up there as well...Wow what a brain fart. Don't know how "train set" got stuck in my head and I typed that up there so many times.
Thanks for pointing that out to me though!
i must say they are doing a movie toy overkill
Damn! That title got me all excited. A Transformers trainset would have been the marriage of two of my three favorite things from my childhood. The third would be Legos, but we all know how BTR turned out...
Was really hoping for an electric, HO or O scale Rail Racer set... Or maybe a G scale Astrotrain! Perhaps MP-06 would not be a Seeker repaint after all.
Sorry sorry for the confusion all! Every reference should be fixed!
For some reason I had "train set" on the mind every time I was going to type "slot car".
I blame sleep deprivation
we didnt talk about more upcoming movie toys?
Hornby is a company that produces train sets, so it's an easy mistake to make especially as it was shown on their stand.
Incidentally, there was a small bit in the business pages of Metro today that said Hornby made something like 9 million in profit last year.
Sounds pretty sweet!
I had a slot car set once, the cars would jump off at max speed. I thought it was funny, but then, I was a little kid.
Nitpicking, I know, but 'twas I who posted the original story last week:
And to Mad Dawg--there *was* a TF train set released in the 80's. See the thread linked above.
I was referencing the frontpage I gave you when I said "up there" in reference to "up on the frontpage".
First TF's owned Gobots... now they "pwn" Morphodroids XD.
That's funny, when I posted this news a couple of days ago over at OTCA, I also mentioned then that a technic Lego set for movie characters would have made the ultimate joygasm upon this slot car set news to me.
How cool would that be? A proper technic set with all its complexities and gears and stuff. Even cooler would be an auto transform set using the latest electric motor.
