It's as cool as you've dreamed it was. A little cramped, but very cool.
Didn't think there was a point in collecting S&H Figures? This bad boy will change your mind in a hurry and be one of the prizes on the toy shelf. It's pretty hard to find these days. The American Version of the car is motorized, one large wheel in the center of the car to propel it, and a swiveled "crazy wheel" on the front to spin the car in random different directions. The American version also came with police barricades, trash cans and a fire hydrant. The UK version shows up now and again, without the motor or extra accessories. Both versions have a working police light on top. You lucky folk with one in a box are invited to get some pictures in...This loose one is from my collection. It was a great day when I drove it home.
Below is the Palitoy (UK) release of the Torino. Palitoy removed the Alley playset pieces and the "Twist out" motor (most likely to keep cost down) but LOOK AT THAT SWEET BOX! Palitoy never seemed to slouch on Mego packaging, they obviously used many of the same artist that created artwork for the Action Man line of toys.
