Lightening McQueen Cars 2

I’m not so sure that as a kid I’d want my toy cars talking to me. I mean hell, there’s got to be something left to the imagination right? This is Mattel’s new 1:55 scale version of Lightening McQueen for the upcoming “Cars 2″ movie from Pixar and Walt Disney Studio’s. It’s actually pretty amazing in the fact that not only do the eyes in the windshield move back and forth, but it also has a fully functional mouth that opens and closes. He’s also got working headlights and performs tricks like loopty-loops, figure-8’s and circles. Now while I think this is all well and good from a technology standpoint, I’m just curious as to what ever happened to just rolling a few Matchbox cars around on the floor and calling it a day. Who knows, maybe it’s me and I’m just getting old, but the last thing I’d want as a kid is Owen Wilson talking to me day in and day out while I’m playing with my cars. Click through for the video.

    I can’t speak for everyone but my 5 year old would HATE this. He much prefers his $0.99 Matchbox/Hot Wheels cars to the techno-laden stuff my family insists on buying him every Christmas. And this is a kid who loves “Cars” and this character

    Now see MrAngry, here’s the flaw in your thinking.

    Kids today don’t have an imagination. They don’t need it. They don’t have to think of something to keep them occupied for a few hours. All they have to do is go sit in front of the tube and watch some kids show, which will make them all into Einsteins, or play video games, which numbs them to real world consequences.

    I mean what kind of parent would let their child go out and play in the mud and dirt building dams and forts and such. Can’t have them doing something like that, they won’t learn anything and they’ll get dirty.
