New From Johnny Lightning for 2015 / 2016 

1994, Thomas Lowe established a new kind of collectible toy company... Playing Mantis. Tom premised his new venture on the idea that the collector was king. “Keeping a close and on going relationship with the collector/consumer not only made good business sense, but also made all of the hard work involved with designing and producing die-cast cars a whole lot of fun.” Playing Mantis also pioneered the White Lightning® chase cars. White Lightning® vehicles were randomly inserted into sealed cases at the factory and made up 1-3% of the production run, making them not only extremely rare, but extremely desirable to the collectors. The Johnny Lightning® name was once again “Beating Them All” with the introduction of numerous new high quality muscle car replicas. Johnny Lightning® brand continued as a cornerstone in the collectible die-cast automotive world. In 2004, RC2 (now TOMY International, Inc.) purchased Playing Mantis.
2015, Round 2 is taking the die-cast automotive world by storm with the relaunch of Johnny Lightning® collector die-cast vehicles! Said Kerry Cunnion, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales at TOMY International, Inc.- “It's great to partner with Tom and his Round 2 team by licensing them the rights to market Johnny Lightning® die-cast collectibles. Tom and his team are very impassioned about the die-cast collector market... I know that Round 2 will do an excellent job relaunching the collector brand.” Thomas Lowe responded, “I grew up playing with and collecting Johnny Lightning® vehicles and having the opportunity to reintroduce this classic brand not just once, but twice is simply amazing. I feel extremely passionate and confident that by both bringing back classic Johnny Lightning® programs, in their original-styled packaging and introducing newly tooled vehicles... Die-cast collectors young and old will once again join with me in “Beating Them All”.
The new product will hit store shelves in January of 2016! “The Johnny Lightning tool bank is absolutely incredible, with over 900 different tools to choose from! Our first 4 releases, consisting of 6 cars each, will be the following themes: Muscle Cars U.S.A., Classic Gold, Street Freaks and Monster Trucks. You’ll find everything the die-cast collector craves from American iron, classic imports and car culture customs. Some of these cars were produced only once and most have not been seen on store shelves in over 10 years. The Johnny Lightning design team and myself have done our research and picked the best of the best to offer to our fellow enthusiasts.” says Lowe. Coming soon, Round 2 also plans all-new tooling with the Dodge Challenger and Charger, Hellcat versions. So, strap-in and hold on tight as we stomp on the gas with the new
