Anyone who grew up in the ’80s probably came across small scale toy cars at some point. These toys or “Hot Wheels” usually were produced with bright colours and sometime had catchy gimmicks, like colour changing paint jobs or cars cribbed from popular films.
Founded in 1999, Jada Toys Inc. is an American based company which specializes in producing die-cast collectibles such as model cars, figures, model kits and RC vehicles. Now Jada Toys is unveiling a in its 1:24 scale car based on the 1984 horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street. The JADA TOYS HOLLYWOOD RIDES NIGHTMARE ON ELM’S STREET FREDDY KRUEGER AND 1958 CADILLAC SERIES 62 collectibles come with a 2.75 inch die cast Freddy figure and the Krueger based Cadillac featured near the end of the film (complete with a die cast Nancy sitting in the passenger seat).
This hauntingly sculpted vehicle measures 9 inches long, 3.25 inches wide and 2.25 inches in height, and features a die-cast body, working wheels and rubber tires. If this wasn’t enough, the car’s hood (with a red and green striped roof, just like Freddy’s sweater), doors and truck also open to give the collectible a more realistic feel.
Look for this car to make its way to stores and online retailers sometime in June (Amazon.com has the price listed at $21.99 USD), and don’t fall asleep at the wheel on this one. Find more announcements and die-cast collectibles on Jada Toys, Inc. website and Social media accounts.
