The remote control car with a virtual world game makes its UK debut at Toymaster.

ToyNews caught up with Revell’s UK country manager Thomas Randrup at Toymaster for a personal demonstration of the firm’s new feature-loaded Revellutions range. The cars will be at retail from mid-July and feature interchangeable parts. For example, the wheels and suspension can be switched out and upgraded as required. Revellutions is designed for indoor and outdoor use and the cars’ dust and water resistant shell is made from sturdy ABS plastic.

However, Revellutions real USP is its video game - kids can plug into a computer via USB to play with their model with the R/C controller. The controller can also be converted for left or right-handed operators where necessary.

Randrup said: “The first signs from the launch at Nuremberg have been very positive. There’s a great expectation from the trade and from ourselves, as it is our own development.You won’t find anything else in the toy industry quite like it.”


Making this game has been a very nice challenge! We got a lot of freedom in styling the envionments and giving it that NEXT-GEN feel… Revell is a great company to work for and Voxdale, the designers of the cars are a fabulous bunch of technical creatives. At the moment there is just one track available for public, but you can expect new track to come soon!
