New Information About Transformers Movie Racing Set

Postby Hotrod » Tue Jan 30, 2007 6:46 pm

Recently we reported here that Scalextric would be releasing a slot car set based on the upcoming Transformers Movie in the United Kingdom. At that time not much was known about the set. Now new information about the set has come out of UK Toyfair. Break of Transformers @ The Moon reported the following:

"I went to the UK Toyfair too and the scalextric set was there but was 'hidden' in a secret room on the Hornby stand apparently by Hasbro's request. The set features Bumblebee and Barricade and the figures/cars are very similar to the old scalextric set of the 80's as in they flip up to robot mode but can carry on racing. The Hornby rep. said there were plans for other sets (featuring other characters) depending on the films success. The secret room was decked out with pictures of Bumblebee & Barricade on the walls and they really looked impressive. Someone also commented on how amazing the 'bots look in the film."

Sounds pretty sweet. I like the old HO electric sets, I may get this.

I'm picturing crappy renditions of these to standing perfectly upright and zooming around. I can't wait to get this and throw stuff at them as they race along.
