This beautiful vehicle still needs the single-barrel projectile weapon on the right and the Minigun-type projectile weapon on the left, however this restored Mega Destroyer is perfect.

Restored film used dune buggy from 1982 movie MegaForce.


The Mega Destroyer was produced as two Hot Wheels miniatures, and has been reprinted under different model names and color themes since 1982.

The MegaForce The Movie Fan Site is an excellent resource for the movie.

It will be interesting to see if they do it this time, or if this becomes another design study that isn't followed up on.

Will previously-published sedan designs become prohibited in Car Wars arena events if production of sedans ends in the real world? :o)

This tweet has a February 2019 photo that shows two cargo containers (appear to be van trailers with wheels removed) and one tanker trailer blocking an international highway entering Venezuela.

This photo reminds me of an overturned tractor-trailer counter printed for Car Wars. I cannot remember if it was included in Car Wars Deluxe Edition, Dueltrack, or a Car Wars Deluxe Road Sections set.
