    Technicaly it's not a KO just a very coincidal use of paint and vechcial molds.
    Pretty cheap next the the x-mods at least :D 
    Found at K-Mart
    Sorry for the crappy pic, had to use my camera phone

    1:24? Dude, that's awesome - Alternators scale! (I just checked - Xmods are 1:28.)
    The cop car could probably be customized to be more like Barricade, too. I wonder how easy these sets are to come by...maybe Delta Star could do decals for it....

    Wow. There has to be some intentional connection to the movie here. I mean, the odds of these two exact RC models, in exactly these paint schemes, being paired accidentally...just astronomical.

    Hell, the Mustang is even Saleen, it looks like. Would the number be the same as Barricade's, by any chance?

    ^ lol
    The number on barricade is 05 i believe, funnier if it would have been 5 0, and on the side it has a 5 point star crest with Highway Patrol something on it.

    I'll be back in Great Falls, (bout 110 miles from where I live) on monday for a business trip for the wife, I'll take some better pics of barricade.

    I'm sure if you can get some repolables wipped up he'd be a dead ringer

    That is not a Saleen. Looks to be a regular GT. Saleen's don't have the second set of lights in the grill, and you can even see the Mustang logo.

    I doubt this is a coincidence, though. To paint those cars in those colors has to be an attempt to cash in on the TF movie craze.

    Managed to snag a few more pics with my camera, I'm thinking the scale is more 1:28 now, about 1 to 1&1/2 inches longer than a deluxe
    I took a size comparision pic but am having trouble emailing it to my computer. O well.
