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
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
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.
