First Look At Zero-Gravity Finn McMissile

The Cars franchise has produced some real gems in the merchandise department. This week at Toy Fair, Spin Master gave the media a first look at what is destined to be a sought after toy, the Zero-Gravity Finn McMissile radio control vehicle. Remote-controlled-cars have always been a blast to play with, but driving them on walls just takes them to a whole new level! Read on for more details.

Spin Master is very excited about this specific vehicle because of its ability to transition between the floor and the ground. You read that right – not only can the Finn car drive on the walls, but it can also move back and forth between the ground. Before, ‘zero-gravity’ cars had to be manually placed on the wall and the ground to move from one to the other, but Finn is fully controlled with the remote.

Watching Finn McMissile being driven on walls was an eye-opening experience. It really demonstrates the leap that the technology in toys has made. I have always been a fan of remote-controlled cars – this one’s ability to transition between the floor and the ground is just icing on the cake. I actually own a toy car that can drive on walls, but it pales in comparison to Finn. While I did not personally get to use the remote control, the car seemed to be moving fluidly in the hands of the demonstrator. I am looking forward to this one.

Spin Master’s Transitioning Zero Gravity Finn McMissile is scheduled to hit shelves in May with a suggested retail price of $39.99.
