    man I want to see those taillights light up on Flo, like the 1960 Cadillac’s

  • Mack_me_Bucko says:

    In a quick look, this is all new tooling on the Precision set. The way parts fit is much nicer, and the allowances for lights makes it an all different thing. The spark plugs actually fire red, then turn to yellow, for example. When you turn it on, it just doens’t “turn on” all at once. First the Flo’s street sign blinks into life, then each successive light flickers on — sort of how Flo’s turns off the lights in the film, just in reverse.

    Also, in “ready” mode, the wingnut on top when pressed, sets up a light show of nearly psychedelic proportions …

  • Mack_me_Bucko says:

    This is a fantastic set, mine just arrived and I am very impressed! Flo has working head and tail lights, and the base unit can be set up to run off a plug-in adaptor (not included) — so no batteries to drain! The switch has three positions: on-off-ready. At “ready” it will automatically light up if the room is dark enough, and then cycle through its routine.

    For those who wondered, the odd shaped zig-zag piece used to connect to the other play sets doesn’t have to be installed, it can be left off. I say, bring on the rest of the series!!

      Jeff, thanks for posting the update. Glad to know it really was a light sensor and not a motion sensor as all the press releases kept saying.

      Do you plan to kitbash two of them to make a Flo’s with the right number of fuel bays? Did they use the same molds from the older Flo’s set, could we use parts from an older set interchangeably with the Precision version?

      It would be great if you can send Met some side-by-side comparison photos of the two generations of Flo’s. (and the two Flos)


      • Mack_me_Bucko says:

        To your kitbashing comment … the plastic in this one is not a hard styrene plastic, so cutting and gluing it would be a really difficult job, especially to make it look nice afterwards. I think I shall just admire it even if it doesn’t match the film precisely.

          This should have been called the Pseudo-Precision Series then.

          • tzdtmm says:

            hahah funny, pseudo precision…..I would have liked it to have the extra pumps/connecting rod pillars too.


            • Mack_me_Bucko says:

              If you bought two sets, you could bash a new one with the correct number of piston rods — but it would mean a new longer baseplate, and new heads, as the four sparkplugs would need to be stretched apart on the new roof. If I were to do it, I’d just use the baseplate and heads as patterns and make new ones, since getting this soft plastic to join back up would be difficult. In the end, it is enjoyable as it is, even if it is wrong.

              (MET: Of course, in CARS 2, Flo’s adds a restaurant).
