Fast & Furious Dodge Charger Off-Road 1970 Review (Mattel)

Fast & Furious Dodge Charger Off-Road 1970
What It Is
This is the 1970 Off Road Dodge Charger, part of a collection of die-cast replica cars from Furious 7. This collection of four key cars from the movie is part of a full line of part of die-cast replicas of cars from the franchise by Mattel. 

In the movie this car endures all kinds of insane attacks, drives out of the hangar of a plane and helps Dom be successful a doing in a band of terrorists. Lots of heroic action, to be sure, but the car doesn't get out in one piece. 

As with all the cars in this collection, this one is super sturdy with a freewheeling chassis and ready for great play or cool display. Kids can also use them with Mattel's Fast & Furious filmmaker app to create dramatic videos they can save and share. There are tons more of the iconic, replica cars from this series in this scale, all grouped by the movies in which the appear.

Is It Fun?
Ever since this car first showed up, it's been one of the favorites of the fans. The sharp detailing and accurate look make this a great toy and a sweet collectible. And, unlike the cars in the movies,  it won't break the bank to add this car your collection.. 
Who It’s For
The cars are graded for kids ages 5 and up, but they really are for fans of the movies...or fans of cool die-cast cars.
What To Be Aware Of
These cars are a bit more expensive than traditional die-cast of this scale. That's partly because the license, but if you look closely you'll see there's greater attention to detail in the car.

Given the  PG-13 rating of the movies, many younger kids probably won't see them, but they may very well be caught up in the cultural excitement around the films (ads, promotions, etc.) so don't be surprised if they want the cars. 

The filmmaker app is free and allows kids to film cars in action and add special effects. We found it somewhat cumbersome to use. Kids who are into filming their cars will probably have other apps or programs that will work as well.
