Weird Toys For Adults

A Ferrari 512 TR on Sainte Catherine's in Montreal.

Just passing the Promenades de la Cathedrale shopping centre and Union. :P

Nah, just yet another backdrop photo.

This is a 1:39 scale Ferrari 512 TR (the early 1990s variation of the Testarossa with a front borrowing elements from the F-348), made by Maisto, that I bought the other day from Zellers. The weird thing about this is that it was an "Assembly Line" kit, found in the section with the model kits rather than the pre-assembled model cars. Basically, the parts are pre-painted and pre-labeled, you just snap the individual pieces in place and then screw the top of the car to the chassis with the enclosed Phillips screwdriver... if you're an adult, it takes about 5 minutes, tops. It hardly deserves to even be called a "kit".

What I suspect the deal about calling this a "kit" is that Maisto wanted its own line of medium-scale (around 1:43) Ferrari toy cars, but, either the official Ferrari license for that scale was too expensive, or other companies, like BBR Models and Ixo/Hot Wheels, had the Ferrari medium-scale toy car license already for the various parts of the word. But, if they acquire the license to sell it as a "kit", it's either more affordable for Maisto than the pre-assembled Ferrari toy car license or they don't have the competing license issues with other toy/model companies, so they sell it as a "kit" even though it's already 95% complete and the purchaser only has to perform a couple of token screw turns. That's just idle speculation... I really have no idea.

It's not nearly as detailed as the 1:43 scale Ixo/Hot Wheels models, but it looks pretty decent, at least on the exterior, and I only paid about $6 Canadian for it, so I ain't complaining. Plus, unlike the Ixo/Hot Wheels versions, it has a pull-back wind-up motor, so I can annoy my dogs with it.

Trivia fact: In the Sailor Moon anime, the villain Nephryte a.k.a. Masato Sanjouin/Maxfield Stanton drives a Ferrari that is obviously meant to be a F-512 TR, though the design is inconsistent from episode to episode.
