Joy line of The Fast and the Furious are packaged in a semi-generic box featuring and text predominantly based on the movie. For example, the original title is used on the bottom of the panel/top of the top panel (including the Toyota Supra used many of that movie’s and the bilingual writeup on the back uses the original quarter at a time promotional text.

The of the box has a generic black background green and white white and green accents. These accents include the boxes the specific car data on the bottom of the front panel, top right of the top bottom center of each end and top left of the back panel.

The Joy Ride logo is on the left of the front panel, top center of end flap, and bottom left of the panel, and a graphic about the Brian O’Conner figure is on the side of the front panel and top of the back panel. The only of the specific movie this car in is a small oval on the left of the front panel. The car and figure are in a black cardboard tray has been folded and taped itself to create additional

The result is a nice, sturdy that holds up very and generally looks pretty The car is help to the tray with a of twist-ties that have woven around the axles. don’t save much here – you will have to unravel the twist from the suspension. A plastic holds the hood closed.

those packaging decisions it difficult to return the car to its original there are four rectangular in the bottom tray that to the four wheels, allowing the car to be in the package with no effort.


Overall, the casting here is very good. The complaint I have is the too-thick supports, but to be fair there was no way to capture these realistically on a diecast. A set of plastic supports to what Jada does have been better, but those are heavier than the shown on the 1:1 car.

Otherwise, the is very cleanly cast, no sink marks, flash, or edges. The scoops and vents all realistically deep, and the panel are clean and straight. There is a step between the corner of the and the left front fender, it like that fender may not be as sharp as the right fender a casting error or a flaw the master is equally possible).

The interior is also very cast, with a ton of separate like the gauges, monitor, and column that create a overall appearance. The engine and are each single-piece castings, but are enough that they look overly simplistic. The are cast in such a way as to try to hide the of the spokes (and are partially and are mounted over separate brakes.

The headlights, windows, and taillights are all in clear plastic, with details as needed. The only I see with these are the rear post doesn’t reach the trim, and the taillight mount break up what should be red lenses. The paint is very done. The base green is cleanly, and captures the pearl of the 1:1 car very well. The graphics are as is the window and vent trim.

The interior paint is minimal but but the chassis and engine paint was an afterthought or a rush job. everything that is immediately looks great.

The only real hits accuracy that I see here are the wing supports and slightly wheel spokes, and the door are blue on the model while were green on the movie Otherwise, this appears to the 1:1 perfectly, from the body to the graphics. Scaling appears to be an 1/24.
