Collecting and OrganizingSpeed Rebels???

So, what is known about these cars? Playing Mantis is/was behind them, so what's the deal with this corner of the diecast universe?

I noticed that as well, oh and that not my hand holding the car

I bought some when KB was still open before my racing days started. JL collectors supposedly didn't care for them because they didn't think they were realistic enough looking. The few I have are not fast and with narrow bases/short axle lengths they tend to be all over the track.  I think there were 8 different castings and each was released in a variety of colors. They weren't available in the White Lightning chase version either so if you were a WL collector you didn't waste your time on them.

Good to hear from you, and good info thanks

Thanks for the heads up

They are 3/4 size versions of all the same cars from Johnny Lightning Muscle Cars I release.  There are 2 wheel types they came with and a ton of different colors.  I have a quite a few of them.  They can be good to use the wheels on something else.
