    Aww man it's the micro stuff..... Couldn't they have at least done this in the normal sized Scalextic?

    I'd like to see them do all the cars/trucks in the normal scalextic size.

    Wonder if it'll be possible to buy just the cars. I already have an HO slot car track.

    These are 1:64, though. Isn't HO 1:87?

    It is tempting, and despite the scale difference, would look schweet next to my G1 Tyco train set. How much, Hitch?

    Man, those pop-up robot modes are gonna cause a whole lot of drag.

    HO slot cars are 1/64 scale. Tyco tried marketing them as S scale once, but they didn't sell well that way.

    They retail at £40, thats $80

    Given the weight and size, I can get probably 4 or 5 in a piece of excess baggage
    Baggage is $100 a piece so that adds roughtly $20 to the cost

    SO, before Ive even made any money for me to cover table costs etc, they are costing $100

    Realistically, would probably sell them for $150 ish

    Cheers
