Hot Wheels has rolled out a new series of die-cast toys aimed directly at our nostalgic hearts. The Retro Entertainment Series plucks iconic cars from movie and television past, shrinks them down to 1:64 scale and packages them up for your buying enjoyment. The collection includes machines like the 1932 Ford from American Graffiti and DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future to the Ecto 1 from Ghostbusters and The Bandit's '77 Firebird from Smokey and The Bandit. There's even a 1971 Plymouth Satellite from The Brady Bunch. All told there will be seven mixes, each with five distinct vehicles.

The sets won't just be land bound, either. Hot Wheels also plans to produce a few aircraft, including the Island Hopper from Magnum P.I. and Cylon Raider from Battlestar Galactica. Awesome.

If you want one, expect to pay around $3 for the privilege. Just be prepared for the quotient of badly-sung theme songs in your household to increase exponentially.

      Half my childhood was driving hot wheels over a rug that simulated a city or just crashing them head on and seeing which would flip. Good times

        My "city" was a chair in the living room. Good times indeed. I still have my Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars in my storage shed.

      Awesome! I'd buy just for the Knight Rider car, I had that when I was a kid. Would also love KARR, Street Hawk & and the General Lee if they continue w/ this Series.
