    Here's one you don't see everyday. A promotional piece made about the time the 4th installment of the Mad Max movie series came out, I seem to recall a tie in to a video game as well, only available initially through a video game hobby store franchise (Gamestop?). Since the movie came out in 2015, it's hard to believe this is already 6 years old.
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

      While not something I would collect it is always neat to see models like these that were made as part of a movie promotion.

        I only saw the movie for the first time last week. There were some crazy mad rides! What an imagination the design team had.

          That is one wild ride.

            That is a cool and unique piece. I'd love to stumble across one of those in my diecast hunts- if I could get it at the right price! I've always wondered why the recent Greenlight Falcon XB casting was not branded with the Mad Max packaging. I suspect it must have been a licensing deal gone sour.

              I think Gamestop is correct. I never got it as I don't own a current-gen home console. My Nintendo Wii was the last one I bought, and that was in 2012? I bought a PS2 used some years later, from Gamestop. I later heard that Gamestop sold the promos very cheaply if they had any leftover, but never got my butt to Gamestop. I've mostly been a PC gamer for the past several years.

              Having just got back into consoles, Gran Turismo 4 on the PS2 is an epic game. Unfortunately, that PS2 was in poor shape when I got it (I should have inspected it--the video connector was broken and it had crayon wax all over) and the optical sensor is on the fritz; and it's started giving me trouble.

                TBH, I got it on the aftermarket. I don't recall offhand how much, but this was a few months after they came out, and the price was reasonable (though you can double that with shipping). I only got the one at the time, but it was not incumbent on the game when I bought.

                That seems to be the way with a LOT of these promo issues. I've gone into Ji**y Lube specifically to get one of the promo issues when and while it was a hot commodity...and the guy behind the counter gave me a "what are you talking about?" look. He was clueless. The models seldom (benefit of the doubt) actually made it to the stores, they came instantly onto the collector market...which drove prices up. Big business / hobby lesson to me over that one, on many levels.

                Sorry about the gaming console...we all have stories like that, live and learn. At least you *can* get another one, if you choose to. I'm not much of a gamer. I go all the way back to PONG. I think it was Atari, and I watched the games get more complicated and improved, more depth and detail as the programs got bigger and bigger. I didn't own any myself, but I've played on other folks' machines back in the day.

                I did some of the early arcade video games, favorites were Tempest and Pac Man (the original) and Mr & Mrs Pac Man (which combined my favorite gaming machine....PINBALL!!!!).

                What can I say? I'm an analogue guy in a digital world.

                  I think the PS2 explains, in part, why Gamestop almost went out of business. They closed two of the four stores in my local region in 2020. I bought the console in 2014-ish. It was supposedly inspected and in good condition but obviously wasn't. I had to drive to another Gamestop out of my way to get it (at the time, I didn't buy online; and likely would've just bought one off eBay, which I'm doing pretty soon). If it weren't for that, I would've returned it. That Gamestop was almost 45 minutes from my house. My local Gamestop didn't sell the PS2 at the time. Kids had apparently owned it, as there was also melted crayon wax on it. The optical sensors/lasers going bad with the Slim (mine being from 2005) is a problem many of them had. Not to mention, a lot of the used games I bought from my local Gamestop were also supposedly inspected, and several were duds.

                  I still have Dad's Atari (which had Space Invaders and Breakout), but I couldn't get it to work. I know just enough about electronics to get into trouble, so I think I need to look for someone who restores vintage consoles. I have most of the classic Atari games on a cheap plug and play console (Dollar General carries a later version of mine, which was made about 15 years ago by Jakks Pacific). The "Micro Arcade" series of Atari games in a credit-card size mini emulator is pretty nice. I carry one with me to save my phone's battery when waiting on something.

                  I love Pac Man. I had a "retro" cartridge back when I got my Game Boy SP 20 years ago.
