/ Auto Kit
are made by Playmates Toys, Inc. and can currently be found on store shelves in
the U.S. They are the same size as Micro Machines. This is why I
decided to add them to my collection. It appears that some of the sets
have been retired already, with new sets due out soon. Playmates does not
state the names of vehicles on their packages. The names on my site were
assigned based on known car names.
Kit cars were made by Famosa Toys in Europe. The 2003 series used some of
the Speedeez body castings, as well as some new ones. The 2003 series also
had the ball bearing in the bottom of the car like the Speedeez. The 2004
series do not have the ball bearing and look very much like a Micro Machine.
