Every time a kid sends a Hot Wheels car hurdling down a twisty track, in the back of their mind they’re imagining what it would be like to be at the wheel of that tiny vehicle. With a GoPro Hero4 Session strapped to the roof, this video, featuring eight different track sections cleverly edited together, is as close as…
The A-10 Warthog was built around the GAU-8: a 600 pound seven-barrel cannon barfing out 30mm tank-slaying rounds so fast that 1,000 of them make a single sound, which became the plane’s signature song. Not quite as vicious as a Nerf gun, but awesome in a different way.
Don’t bother asking where or how you can buy one, because this is clearly a one-off creation for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, which gets underway today. But Mattel and Hot Wheels have gone and created a full-size, drivable version of the X-Wing car that will be available as part of a limited edition set during the…
The board game Operation is a great example of how negative feedback can also negatively affect your performance. But instead of playing in constant fear of that loud buzzing sound, when you touch the sides while playing this sadistic version of Operation, you get blasted with a paintball gun. Sounds like a lot of fun.
Do you like cars? Small versions of big things? How about putting drinks on tables made of fragile material? If you answered yes to any of the above, today’s a good day for you, my friend.
Land Rover used to run an intense annual cross-country driving challenge to show off the capabilities of their 4x4s. We’re talking long slogs epic landscape panoramas and lots of digging in the mud. A real event hasn’t been hosted in years, but some creative fans found a practical way to bring it back.
Man, Jeep Wranglers sure are expensive, apparently even when they’re 1/8th scale. The detail on this two-foot replica is incredible, but is any toy worth what you could spend on a real car from Craigslist?
The early years of parenting can decide whether a child is hooked on cars for the rest of their life, or something more boring, like golf. That’s a lot of power to hold, so use it wisely. These ten toys should have your kid begging for a license.
If you had a jet engine strapped to a truck, the first thing you should want to do should be obvious – that’s right, you’d strap a Tickle Me Elmo to a post and shoot it with screaming hot fire.
There’s nothing wrong with grown men liking R/C cars! At least I hope not, because I could watch these things all day. Check out this adorable little truck springing over a jump, landing in a lake, and just keep on driving!
Matthew Inman made this vintage Toyota Land Cruiser with a lot dedication, some superhuman sense of detail and 1,700 Lego bricks. It’s simply amazing. It’s got a tiny little transfer case! Leaf Springs! Look at that little bitty fan belt!
Starting this summer, Lego Technic will be selling the Mercedes Arocs 3245 construction truck as a buildable model. A beautiful, complex, technically advanced model. In fact from here looks better-engineered than the last three real trucks I’ve actually owned.
“Hajime” means “beginning” in Japanese, and with that Toyota promises this adorable mini-Jeep is the first of many fun machines they’ve got planned.
The new “Ford 3D Store” has downloadable 3D-printer files so you can make your own F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350R, Focus ST, or Fiesta ST at home in whatever scale or substance you want!
I finally found the Range Rover variant you can buy for a bargain, and actually have a chance of making money on your investment!
Letting 1930s GM teach you how a transmission works is great and all, but 1930s technology was limited in that it couldn’t actually show you the internal bits of a transmission in motion. Luckily, humanity has advanced to the point where there is a new solution, for your internal-transmission-workings desires. It’s…
Since I (allegedly) won't fit in the 2015 Ford F-150 Power Wheels, I roped my cousin's kid into helping me review it. He rated its attributes on a numerical scale; Looks? "Nine. Actually, 90." Functionality? "F150." Ok, I see what you did there you cheeky little bastard... this isn't going to be easy.
Xinlexin Electronic Toys' Lego-like line called "Gudi," (even the logo is cribbed) has tons of warfighter-themed sets, including this bearded fellow and his "Terrorist Air Car." I guess it makes sense to give your peacekeeping pieces somebody to fight, but somehow I feel like this would not fly in America.
