Toy Story Scalextric set on the way

Toy Story Scalextric.jpgScalextric are set to release a Toy Story themed 1:64 scale circuit, just in time for Father’s Day and the upcoming release of Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 3 animated movie.

Recreating the classic “Falling with style” van chase scene from the first movie, the cars feature Woody and Buzz Lightyear as drivers, while the track-side decorations feature Sid the Dinosaur, Slink the Dog and my personal favourites, the green soldier army. The track itself features a near-vertical hairpin turn that is set to challenge even the most seasoned of Scalextric fans.

Paul Chandler, Scalextric Marketing Manager, told Tech Digest: “The Toy Story films are a favourite with both adults and children and we are very excited to be bringing this landmark film to life in our Disney-Pixar Toy Story micro set.”

The set will cost £50 and will be hitting shops on July 23rd 2010.
