Star Cars: Mixing nostalgia and madness for Great Justice!

1341615766_TMNTVanHeaderCrave

So toylines over the years may or have involved cars once or twice.

Mayyyybe that dedicated fandom acquired too much money and/or time to replicate their favorite characters in a larger, more automotive form. Sure, you’re probably familiar with stuff like KITT from Knight Rider, but a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle PARTY VAN?

That and MORE, after the cut!

Crave Online is cashing in on this lucrative and largely untouched corner of the nerd market with the debut of Star Cars, an uber-nerdy parade of cars and deviant outcasts from society that have poured their hearts, souls and paychecks into restoring and altering perfectly normal vehicles into gigantic toys.

I’m so envious that I’m spitting fire. This episode actually shows a G1 Ratchet, or at least the van Ratchet was based off of decked out as the toy. I’d planned on doing something to that effect with a corvette, but then I decided to hold off. I mean, it’s not like they stopped making the toys or anything, right?

Anyway, keep an eye on this. This could get seriously entertaining given enough time.

    Just wanted to say thank you for the awesome write up. We’ve been shared on a lot of great sites and blogs but I think you’ve nailed what the show and these cars are about better than anyone. Stay tuned for more, and keep up the great work.
