You may have thought that puzzles were pretty lame, but we’re sure that GreenLight Toys’ MotoBuidz 3D Car Model Puzzles are going to change your mind.
The MotoBuildz Kit pieces are made from durable foam pieces and come with plastic wheels and metal axles. There’s no glue or paint required – you just snap the pieces into place. You can choose from the 2012 Ford Mustang GT, 2012 Ford Raptor Truck, 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SS, 2012 Dodge Charger SRT and the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8.
Once the model is complete, it’s ready to race, thanks to a friction motor. To get it rolling, just set it on the ground and push it forward. The motor uses its own energy created by you from pushing it forward to keep it going.
The GreenLight MotoBuildz Model Kit will be available at Toys “R” Us and other major retailers this April. Be sure to watch the promo video after the jump.
Perhaps it’s just a coincidence, but we doubt it. With sales of the Ford Mustang poised to be surpassed by the Chevy Camaro for the first time in several decades, Ford will look to make its pony car more attractive next year.
So how can you make the new Mustang GT, complete with its impressive 412-hp 5.0-liter V8 engine even better? Easy: make it cheaper.
For 2012 Ford will drop the Mustang GT’s base price by $500 to just under $30,000 – $29,995 in fact. Unfortunately the Premium GT model goes up in price by $200 and the Premium GT Convertible gets a $700 bump.
Upgrades for 2012 include a new Lava Red color with new content including a illuminated vanity mirrors, a universal garage door opener and a three mode (Comfort, Normal and Sport) selector for the electric power steering system.
