Ok guys here is what i have so far, its due out Spring to summer of this year,the box Art i saw was very cool,and the car was yellow ,and it had a logo on the side with a smiley face looking dude with sunglasses and pointy gotee beard,and the words down the side said VEGASTAR.Tom told me though its coming in red,and blue,and maybe I guess yellow.Ok now dont freak out on the price,because remember this he is a small company,and he doesnt have places like walmart buying them,and lets face it they were $25.00 over 30yrs ago,and that back then was pricey....He says around $140.00,but it does come with the Car,the Launcher,the Tether Line Drag strip, Parachutes. much like they came back in the day.and think of it thisway ,if you find one of the drag cars in great condition in Ebay,thye sell for over $200,and if they have the box and any accessories they go for well over $300.00 to $400.00.
Ok alos he says they should run Over 30Mph down the the tether line.and now that doesnt seem really fast but the car is like only 17 inch long,made of plastic,iam sure it will run faster that that on alittle longer tether line.
And Tom says if this one sells good they will do other Models,two he is thinking about doing next is either the Dune Buggy Or the Baja Beetle!!!!Yes right now they dont have any info on their site,but if you go to the link above and go to the contact section and email them ,they will confirm this info.all i know iam excited about it.
