So while they are a little shorter than they could be – dimension-wise, it looks pretty good.

Echo-Chug-&-Dusty

Solid diecast metal – of course, some plastic parts like the landing gar, wheels and missiles. Also the wheels turn and visors go up and down.

Echo-belly

Yep. Danger Zone for your wallet. Good luck getting that song out of your head now. :-)

Echo-&-Bravo-tails

If you want a slightly longer version, the Disney Store has Lights & Sounds ones that are about 13″ in length – so if you want 1:55 scale, these are it!

They are pretty cool looking though unlike the regular deluxe versions – these are plastic.

So, that’s the trade off, scale to CARS and plastic or diecast metal but scale closer to 1:96.

Echo Lights & Sounds (plastic).
