I found the Super Mario Themed Hot Wheels cars today at Walmart. These cars are on cards that, when put together make a side scrolling scene. The cars that have been recolored to represent Mario Bros Characters: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Wario, Bowser, Toad, Yoshi and Donkey Kong. The vehicles are The Vandetta, Ryura LX, RD-08, Cruise Bruiser, Bully Goat, Bread Box, Flathead Fury and Super Van. I”ll probably keep these on the cards because of the scene that they create. I do like it when Hot Wheels takes something like this and makes a great set of cards and cars that work together. I liked the Stars and Stripes set that makes an American Flag with two large eagles on the top and bottom. That was a great series. You can see all of the cars in my video below. And after that is an image of all 8 of them.
Ever since I heard the news earlier today about Donkey Kong and Bowser I’ve been so excited. I’m excited most of all that there will finally be some great looking figures for these characters. No more random plastic posts keeping the figures up. The sculpts on the Skylanders SuperChargers figures are incredible. Donkey Kong with a hand plant on the engine, just amazing. Bowser there with his giant hammer is also perfect. I watched a fun video from CoinOpTv that had Robert speaking with Lou from Activision about the attacks each character can do and they take great care to keep the long history of each character in place when they do their attacks. For instance Donkey Kong has an attack that goes all the way back to the original Donkey Kong. Wow!
