” … utilize touch sensors and cutting-edge micro technology to capture the look, sound, moves and animated personality of everyone’s favorite red racer with never-before-seen features in a 1:55 scale car.”

His high-power micro motors drive forward, reverse and full 360° turns. McQueen Alive also moves his eyes, shrugs his shoulders and speaks with an incredibly lifelike moving mouth. Capture all the on-screen magic as Lightning McQueen Alive says over 40 signature phrases, squeals his tires and interacts with you. When Lightning McQueen needs to refuel after a long day’s play, simply place him back on the included gas station charger to refresh his batteries.
