The next Micro Machines subseries are the Micro Lights. There is also the Super Micro Lights Series (#166), but although they are similar subseries, they are not the same. The Micro Lights are cars with front are rear lights, that can be activated when the car is pushed down, while the Super Micro Lights are generally bigger vehicles (trucks, vans, camper vans, limos, buses...) and they don´t have rear and front lights, but lights in the interior that reveals the silhouettes of the passagers.
Both lines were launched in 1990. The Micro Lights subseries comprised 18 collections of 2 cars each, however, Micro Lights and Super Micro Lights were merged the next year into the Micro Lights series. Cars were the same (partly in the same colours/decorations), but "remixed".
The two cars presented here are a BMW 635 and a T-Bird Super Coupé (Collection #6), both decorated in rally colours and patterns.
