ohhhhh that’s weird. mcdonalds did an attack pack promotion here too, but it must have been with a different set, as the one i got from there was a tiger-striped pickup truck
matchbox also had a monster vehicles line called carnivores, but they were more explicitly monstruous, and also a lot bigger.
i had these (not my pictures):
for some reason, venom spitter ended up being the ruler of all the evil characters. maybe because he was way bigger than most action figures? i dunno.
even as a kid, i always saw right through most of the toy companies’ attempts to get nerdier kids into toy cars, like sci-fi/monster-themed hot wheels tracks and so on
but these lines of monster cars were always something that got my attention for some reason
also, finding the pictures for this post reminds me of a d-list toyline called carzillas
the only one i ever saw of these was illegal wheels, and i guess the line must have been a big flop, as i only ever saw them in discount supermarkets (though to be fair, those places were also where i’d get the first series of spawn figures, as well as mighty max sets and other cool stuff, usually for absurdly low prices like £1-3 each (though the mighty maxes from there all only came with instructions in foreign languages, that was a small price to pay for such a small price to pay))
