An Interesting Find


That Ain't Falco

Recommended Posts

Today, I stumbled across an oddity in a small game store two hours away from where I life: a die-cast (I think) metal toy car, sort of like even cheaper Hot Wheels.

What made it interesting was the branding, which was, inexplicably, Star Fox 64. It was made by Johnny Lightning as part of the Racing Dreams series and looks so stupid that I'm definitely uploading a photo of it, once my phone starts cooperating. It also includes a "Logo Card" with various bits of almost cleverly alliterated information.

Has anyone else seen one of these things?

I think I saw something like that once. If I'm not mistaken, it was on a thread on these very forums. I think the thread was something to do with Star Fox merch.

A few moments of googling brought these two photos up.  It's definitely an interesting special edition.  I like how close it is to the game's artwork style.

I think I might have a slightly different version. I don't believe it has any of the art on the roof or hood, but this could just be my memory messing with me.

Was it new or more a vintage item? Because here there are tiny hot wheels with Mario, Link and so on and so forth as a paint design and it's simply a gimmick to get kids to like hot wheels again lol.

Vintage. Dated 1998. Smelled like old cardboard (your guarantee of quality).

I have one of these. Johnny Lightning cars are collectible.

Any idea where I can get one online?
