Scalextric Brings Slot Cars To The Movies And TV

Scalextric, the British toymaker famous for its slot cars and tracks, is releasing a new line of model vehicles in homage to some famous cars of film, and two from a long-running television show.

New this year, slot racers will be able to be like Marty McFly and try to travel back in time with the DeLorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future, though hitting 88mph might be a stretch.

 

There is also a Batmobile with a companion homage Joker car for superhero chases around the streets of Gotham. Or, in a nod to the upcoming film No Time To Die, they could play superspy James Bond with his famous Aston Martin DB5 and not-as-famous but still cool Aston Martin V8 Vantage, which will both appear in the film.

 

The quirky two here are from the British TV show Only Fools and Horses, a BBC comedy series that ran from 1981 to 1991. Imagine the fun pretending to be Del Boy and Rodney as they race from one get-rich-quick scheme to another in a Ford Capri Mk III and a three-wheeled Robin Reliant Regal van. Lovely jubbly!

Great toys. However, I now prefer to play online games such as online casinos without a deposit as described here: https://casinospieles.de/casino-bonus/ohne-einzahlung/ . It is quite convenient and helps to win something without spending a lot of money.
