When it comes to diecast rides, there's a lot that we love, and our fleet increases regularly here at Rock Father HQ. Among the latest to start rockin' the road with The Rock Daughters are the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES T-Machines - reviewed here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine earlier this Fall. Created by Playmates Toys and available in the diecast aisles of your favorite toy emporiums right now, these vehicles take inspiration from Nickelodeon's hit TMNT animated series, placing each character (heroes and villains alike) in vehicles that would be totally appropriate for "raising shell" on the streets of NYC. An official entry into The Rock Father's 2015 Holiday Wish Guide, the T-Machines are also the very first Holiday Wish Guide Giveaway for the season, with one lucky reader taking home a seriously Turtle-riffic prize pack that includes two (2) basic vehicles, two (2) vehicles with sound, and one (1) basic playset - all chosen at random from the available assortment!
