Vintage Transformers box art
8 Share This

Time for a trip down memory lane…remember the original Transformers cartoon? Hopefully some of you are old enough to remember the cheesy music, high-pitched voices and very serious narrator. I loved the show as a kid but what I really loved were the toys. Too bad they were expensive as hell back then, that didn’t stop me from staring at them at the toy shop. Back then all the artwork for toy boxes were done by great artists including the Transformers line up. Check em out, they don’t make them like they use to anymore.

Epic 2,000 foot Hot Wheels track

I’ve always been envious of kids with Hot Wheels tracks since I never had one as a kid. Probably because the person who create this track was hoarding all the parts, the track literally goes through and around the entire house. Hope he bought rechargeable batteries for his launchers.

1,200 Hot Wheels track

Nothing brings backs memories like Hot Wheels, these miniature cars were nothing short of awesome and the tracks I built for them were limited only by imagination. Chris Burden pretty much built the ultimate Hot Wheels track by building a massive track that houses 1,200 cars. Fully automated, the track is a new art installation at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. We need more art like this!

Do want: Razor Ground Force Drifter
8 Share This

Check out the new Ground Force Drifter by Razor (same guys that made the annoying scooter), it’s a small electric go cart that can go up to a blazing 12 MPH. This would be amazing during the winter storms in Edmonton with some winter tires, it would handle better then half the cars in Edmonton. I’d probably get one but with my weight the top speed would probably drop to 4 MPH. Commercial for the Ground Force Drifter after the jump.
