I have already talked about several Micro Machines series, but there are still many more to be commented... Today I want to focus on the Drivers Collections.
It was a rather short subline in which every model came with a (not removable/detachable) miniature driver/pilot. Just as simple. Most models were actually cabrios or race cars, although there were also motorbikes and military collections. The figures are made is a softer gum plastic, so my guess is that they are simply glued to re-decorated old models.
There were 4 collections made in 1991, and other 4 collections in 1992, each of them with four miniatures (except “bonus” vehicles). Each “drivers” collections have a subtitle.
I own “Hotfoot Collection #1”, that includes:
- Kurtis Kraft Racer
- March 707
- `88 Camaro Cabrio
- Corvette Cabrio
Maybe not the most imaginative sub-series, but most vehicles look really nicer with drivers on top! Motorbikes especially.
