For the first time in the line, fans can now own a vehicle and McFarlane Toys told us at New York ToyFair 2014 that more vehicles and playsets are planned if this set performs well.
Update: We were asked by IJustLiketheToys on twitter if the tires can move around or if the flat part of the motorcycle prohibits that. The answer is yes – the flat part does prohibit the back tire from going all the way around. Sorry we missed that in the review.
