Takara brings Dream Tomica racers and fires up Bowser's Castle with Choro-Q
Takara Tomy is enjoying its license for Mario Kart 7. It has introduced a new Choro-Q racing set, which are motorized RC tracks that feature obstacles found in-game. This track has Thwomps and lava. Mario and Bowser are shown on the track in the pics after the break, but they do not come with the track. There are several other Choro-Q racers that are compatible with these tracks as well. Not a cheap collection though. This track is over at AmiAmi for 2340 yen. The individual karts can be 3000 yen each. Weird that the karts would be more expensive than the track, but the real tech is in the karts and controllers.
Takara Tomy has also introduced a "Dream Tomica" line, featuring Yoshi in the Bumble V kart. Both Mario and Yoshi are at AmiAmi for 470 yen. Mario in the standard kart can be seen after the break. I hope to see more racers in special karts from the line!
