Own the fabulous "Game Carry" Model Car

[Thanks to Oga Shi for the tip!]

Kids everywhere can never get enough of the ice cream truck, assuming they have money for it. But what if someone made a car that offered other on-the-go services sort of like an ice cream truck, like a mobile arcade? Well, you can own something just like that, sort of, with the Game Carry toy model car from Japan. Just to reiterate – this is a fictional van and as far as we know, no one has made a real life-sized one of these things. But if you want a toy model of one, they are selling them in Japan and they are battery operated too! Apparently this is based upon a series of similar model cars that manufacturer AOSHIMA used to make in the 80’s and while I am not sure exactly how much they want for these things, you can get them from Yahoo! Japan Auctions according to our source. Heck, these are so cool I’d pick up a few just to sell at my arcade if they didn’t cost too much.

We don’t focus a lot of attention on redemption here at AH but we do understand that it is an important (and redemp_gcextremely profitable) part of the industry. As part of an effort to help drum up attention for redemption product, The Stinger Report will launch a new e-newsletter service starting in May called The Redemption Report or TRR. TRR will follow the same format and circulation as The Stinger Report newsletter service does but it will feature a new Senior Editor to overlook it’s overall content – Frank “The Crank” Seninsky, a man who has 40+ years of experience in the industry. For more details, check out the press release after the break.
