we've gotten some direct contact with Hot Wheels Elite - and they've provided us with updated tooling images, a video of the scanner in action and a COMPLETE list of all features. Check it out.

Keep up with the questions and I can ask them anything you are curious about. I'm going to ask if the t-tops are going to be "glass" too - and also about the scanner animation - I hope they smooth out that pause. but again, minor nits on a tooling prototype!
