When I was really young The Addams Family TV series had a tendency to creep me out, but I still tuned in because I loved seeing Gomez blow up his elaborate train sets. And while this train set/slot cars mashup is lacking in explosions and awesome pyrotechnics, something tells me the random (or more likely deliberately staged) collisions would be just as satisfying. All in all both the train set and the slot cars are pretty basic, with a transformer controlling the train’s forward or reverse direction and a couple of trigger controllers for the cars, but it’s that single death-defying intersection that makes it seem so much more exciting. Even if you have to pay $299.95 from Hammacher Schlemmer for a toy that’s one random encounter away from being broken.
