Hot Wheels Legends to Life Don “the Snake” Prudhomme Electronic Funny Car. Scale 1:24. Mint in the box. Matching serial number and paperwork. This phenomenal model is truly a work of art and coupled with the finest electronics at the time of manufacturing, it is unparalleled in quality. Some of the many features of this model are a synchronized cassette tape that coincides with the functions of the car; the lifting of the funny car body, firing sound of the engine, which features flashing header pipes and spinning blower belt on the engine front. Spinning tires, wheelie action, count down lights on the starting line tree, just so many features and actions all working at the same time, and the ability to repeat these actions for continued demonstration. The base unit requires 4 ‘D’ cell batteries for operation. I highly recommend only using fresh, brand-new batteries each time this is operated and NEVER leave the batteries in the base. It is NOT recommended for unsupervised children.
The display also offers the ability to run the second feature in manual mode and plays the ‘B’ side of the tape, which is a conversation/interview with the ‘Snake’ himself.
All in all, there is nothing but action packed into this tremendous offering from Mattel. The serialized model matches the packaging and included documentation and is extremely important to maintaining the overall rarity and value of the item. You can be sure that there are very few of these available in this condition and most are in private collections. No disappointments here!
