This morning in New York at a CARS 2 event, Disney, Mattel, LEGO and more revealed toys and games based on the upcoming summer movie release CARS 2. The film is coming to theaters on June 24, 2011.
Mattel will release more than 150 toys including Lightning McQueen Alive. After reading about this new toy and seeing the video that we have posted for you below, we are 100% convinced this will be one of the hottest toys of 2011. Mattel and Disney have done one phenomenal job at creating a toy that embraces CARS 2 and will treat the fans to a toy like never before. (We’re a wee bit excited. Can you tell?)
This is a very exciting toy release for toy enthusiasts like ourselves because it features innovation like we’ve never seen before in the 1:55 scale! Watch this video so that you can really appreciate what Lightning McQueen Alive is all about.
Description: With a simple touch sensor, everyone‟s favorite Cars racer comes to life with Lightning McQueen Alive. Featuring never before seen innovation in 1:55 scale, Lightning McQueen Alive packs big personality in a small package utilizing cutting-edge micro technology. Ready to interact with kids and collectors, Lightning McQueen can drive around all by himself, both forwards backwards and complete 360s. He can move his eyes, shrug his shoulders and his lifelike moving mouth captures all the on-screen magic as Lightning McQueen Alive says his signature phrases. When Lightning McQueen needs to refuel after a long day‟s play, simply place him back on the included gas station charger to refresh his batteries.
What do you think? We bet you would like to know when this will be available right? Not until Fall of 2011!!!
Stay tuned for much more about CARS 2 toys, games and….yes, video game.
