Fast and the Furious meets the Detailed and Collectible
GreenLight Collectibles will join the franchise that shred tires all the way to the box office
Indianapolis, IN (June 14, 2011) GreenLight has jumped into the passenger seat for this adventure, utilizing their NBC Universal licensing for the Fast and the Furious franchise. GreenLight plans to introduce multiple offerings that will be affiliated with the series throughout the next year.
GreenLight will be introducing the following Fast and the Furious offerings for 2011:
Fast Five - 1:18 1963 Chevrolet Convertible Grand Sport
Fast Five - 1:64 1970 Dodge Charger – “Rio Charger”
Fast Five – 1:64 2010 Dodge Charger “Rio Police”
2Fast 2 Furious – 1:64 1970 Dodge Challenger
Fast Five is the fifth entry in the Fast and the Furious series. The film is based on long-time criminal Dominic Torreto (Vin Diesel) teaming up with former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) on the wrong side of the law for a wild ride of fast cars and fiery explosions. Torreto and O’Conner lead a reunion of returning stars from each chapter of the series for the first “heist” film in the franchise. They gather in Rio De Janeiro for an ultimate high stakes race.
The first action sequence of Fast Five stars a silver Grand Sport; the victim of a car theft aboard a running passenger train. Driven by Dom, this scene is impressive and captures the fun and heart pumping adventure that the franchise was built upon. GreenLight chose to replicate this car from Fast Five as it gives the most dramatic representation of the accelerating appeal that fans and car lovers can expect to experience.
These 1:18 and 1:64 die-cast replicas feature detailed engines, real rubber tires, metal body and chassis, detailed graphics, custom license plates and are officially licensed. Their release is scheduled for 2011 and production numbers will vary. These pieces will be available through official GreenLight hobby shops and wholesale dealers.
