Track Building and BuyingNoodlehead VS Noodlist

Wrong video link! I did find it in the similar videos though. Interesting comparison! I was very tempted to get that Noodlist when i saw it, but it was kind of expensive so I didn't bite.

I think the original "Noodlehead" was 100% metal(except for the interior)...did Mattel 'cheap-out' on the "Noodlist" with a plastic engine or base? They look pretty, but it certainly won't buy you any extra momentum.

If you click on the list of videos, it's right there.

That is a good looking track Mattel has. I love the start gate.

Please allow me to clarify something...I do commend Mattel for nice looking car though.

I'm pretty sure that the Noodlist (reissue) has a metal base
but I will double-check in a few days. This should be the link
to my video:

Thanx, markkaz. I watched your vid again and that exposed engine & base appear to be awefully *shiny*. Did Mattel decide to chrome-dip some of their metal parts?

The HWC website claims that its "Full-metal, polished-chrome-plated chassis, engine and pipes." Although I do agree, based on the video the chrome looks a lot like the cheap plastic stuff they use on the mainlines.

...nice!

Thanks for the clarification, WorpeX.
