GREENLIGHT MOTORWORLD IN STOCK
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (UPDATED JULY 16, 2009) GreenLight Collectibles first stormed onto the collector die-cast scene in 2005 with a fresh new look for 1:64 scale die-cast model car replicas that immediately captivated the high-end die-cast collector. The introduction of successful lines such as Corvette Collection and Muscle Car Garage simultaneously in late-2005 quickly spawned into a wide range of collector die-cast product lines that are widely distributed by mass market and hobby outlets around the globe. As a compliment to the GreenLight Collectibles product mix, GreenLight is launching 1:64 scale Motor World as the first GreenLight Toys product line.
Motor World is presented as an affordable collectible die-cast line that features vehicles from global car manufacturers headquartered in the United States, Japan and in several European nations. Under a three-pronged sub-series branding system, Motor World is brought to market with color-coded blistercard packaging that designates the individual product designations Classics Series, All-American Series and Speed Series. Well known domestic brands such as Corvette, Mustang and Viper are paired with some of the most popular global car brands such as Jaguar, Lamborghini and Porsche to create an eclectic mix that appeals to die-cast collectors in every corner of the globe. Motor World is the first line of GreenLight die-cast model cars to include vehicle replicas from outside of the United States.
1:64 Motor World Series One includes the following twelve vehicles:
Classics Jaguar E-Type
Classics Porsche 356A
Classics Shelby Cobra 427 S/C

All twelve cars from Series One will be available at Toys R Us stores throughout the United States and through GreenLight Hobby Distributors/Wholesalers and Online Dealers around the world beginning in early August 2009.
Motor World die-cast model cars feature 100% authentic metal bodies in true 1:64 scale, plastic chassis, authentic detailed wheels and are officially licensed by the respective automobile companies. As with GreenLight Collectibles offerings, the Green Machine chase car program carries over into the Motor World line with 2% of the production run manufactured in alternate schemes to provide the marketplace with the rare vehicles the collector craves. In addition to the model features, Motor World die-cast replicas are presented in blistercard packages that feature individual unique car art for each vehicle in the assortment. The Suggested Retail Price for 1:64 Motor World is $2.99 USD.
On the heels of 1:64 Motor World will be a 1:43 scale counterpart. This line will premier later in 2009 and will include the same type of global vehicle mix found in the smaller assortment.
