Just wondering why some of the thingies 1/24 slot cars of the 60s and 70s never made it to lexan ho bodies. Copyright protection, or something else? As a previous owner of 1/24 scale thingie cars: Dynamic super bandit, Dynamic renegade, Classic stinger, Classic manta ray, Riggen mach 1, to name a few....I would absolutely LOVE to see some of these in ho format, no matter what the cost. Anyone never going to the electric dreams thingie site should view the beautiful slot cars of the past. These designs should have never been forgotten. Maybe just too expensive to do, or a lack of interest? Would be awesome bodies for ho cars. I wish.........Wade

Yes, thats a good one. I meant its a shame that the original designs from the golden thingie age are not available...the ones I mentioned, for example. A thingie can be almost anything...I was just wondering about those old classic shapes that evidently have been abandoned. If you ever owned any of them in 1/24 scale, you would appreciate what Im talking about. But that is a nice thingie you have there. If you can find a picture on line of dynamics super bandit and renegade, youll see what I mean,,,and find a classic stinger! Wade

Check out the RiggenHO.com web site. We did two "Thingie" Limitied Editions. One was based on a body that Richard Picard did. The other was released last month based on the Dreamworks body.

Wizzard HO BBS Rules:
Prelude to the Rules:

I guess when you set down a set of rules, you really need to define the reason for thier existence. This BB is more than a mere property to me. It is a place to communicate with friends as well as customers, and teach. For me, its kind of like home. I would then ask you guys to treat it like you would my home, and like you would want me to treat your home. If we have a problem with a guest, I'll deal with it. If I don't want you in my home, rest assured, I don't want you here either. If you wander over to the neighbors and start bad mouthing me, or anything associated with me, don't expect a warm welcome if you come knocking on the door. If you get booted, we will do everything we can to make it so that you can't even view the BB. I'd rather not spend my time and knowledge teaching somebody who does not appreciate it. From what I can gather, there are 9 former or current national champions presently registered to the BB. Given the vastness of knowledge available, this BB is unparalleled anywhere. I do hope you all enjoy and respect this BB.
