The "SALE" sign at the door entrance (which might be a bit too large for scale, but who cares about that when you look at everything else!) raises up, allowing the top tire to flip up and down, so Luigi's assistant, little Guido (modeled as an Alza/Tutto forklift) can obsess about fixing it "just-so" when it falls (just as in the Cars movie!) And the light show - well, it's simply spectacular, inside and out of the shop! The main sign above the door lights up in the colors of the Italian flag and looks just beautiful. The light strands attached to it from the Leaning Tower of Tires (which is all one piece and nicely detailed, a knod to Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa, of course!), don't actually light up themselves, but they seem to since they're clear and reflect the light from the rest of the set. On the back of the set, there's a switch for "normal" mode, and you can press down the "Quality Service" tire sign jutting out on the right side of the set to turn it on (with the lights flickering as they come on!), and press it again for another lightning pattern; an "off" mode; a "light sensor" mode that can be used to turn the set on automatically when the room the set is in becomes dark; and there's also a hole in the back of the set to plug in an AC adapter if you choose to rather than use the 3 C batteries required (as of today, this listing incorrectly states 3 AA batteries.)
It comes with a sidewalk piece that snaps onto the left, and a road piece (all nicely re-paved by Lightning McQueen and Bessie!) that snaps onto the front, as well as a connecting piece to hook it up to story sets. There are a couple of loose, nicely detailed plastic flower pieces (inside of tires, of course!) to set out (in case Red stops by to water them), and also a little loose arrow sign that fits nicely onto Guido's prongs. There's just too much detailing on this set to go into in one review!
Which leads me to the included car/forklift models themselves... though Guido's pretty similar to Mattel's conventional 1:55 scale models (just a hair shorter), he has hinges at the bottom of his prongs that allow them to move up and down! All of the Precision models have more detail than the conventional ones, including rubbers tires, and among various other differences, this model of Luigi's headlights and tail lights light up when you press his little black cap (hair?) on top (which is textured, unlike the conventional models!) There are several differences in Luigi's appearance versus the conventional models... he's a brighter yellow, and he's just a bit larger (to accommodate the batteries inside, I assume... it comes with demo batteries, but they recommend replacing them with 2 new AG13 button cell batteries by easily unscrewing the compartment on his underside.) This is a playset you simply have to see to believe as far as the amount of detailing that went into it - QUITE impressive, just an awesome set, and heads above the formerly released Casa Della Tires set.
Our oldest grandson (now 8) became a Cars fanatic right before his 4th birthday, and we've been collecting Mattel's incredibly durable, detailed 1:55 scale models ever since. The one thing we never invested in were playsets, but all four of these Precision sets that've already been released (this one along with Flo's, Fillmore's, and just released Tow Mater's Towing & Salvage) are already placed in my Amazon "cart" in anticipation of giving our grandsons (we now have two more, 4 and almost-2) a HUGE thrill this Christmas! The remaining Precision sets (listed on a little map poster inside this set) will be the Radiator Springs Courthouse & Fire Department, Ramone's House of Body Art, Lizzie's Radiator Springs Curios, Sally's Cozy Cone Motel, Doc's Ornament Valley Mechanical Clinic, Sarge's Surplus Hut, and the Piston Cup Racing Museum. I know they originally said they'd be released incrementally through 2018, but I'm wondering - with the release of Cars 3 slated for June 2017 if that plan will be accelerated? Something tells me the market will be saturated with Cars 3-related merchandise after the new movie's release, as has been the case in the past. There are Precision singles being released as well (Lightning McQueen, Doc Hudson and Ramone so far, Mater, Sarge and Sheriff soon to arrive, and there's bound to be more) - and the packaging on both the sets and singles is very attractive to boot.
The ONE drawback... the hefty $99.99 list price Mattel has set. Mattel lists these sets with "Age Grade: Adult"... adults certainly will enjoy them, but I think the main reason they did that was as part of the pricing strategy. As of today, Amazon's listings for the sets so far show "manufacturer recommended age" of "8-15" for this set and Mater's, "4-15" for Fillmore's, and "32 months - 15" for Flo's. Now, I think 32 months is a bit too young, but certainly 4 years old is fine (the loose pieces preclude toddlers due to the choking hazard), and the 16+ set will love these as well! Those I refer to as "super-collectors" are going to snatch this up right away, but my husband and I live on a fixed income and despite how unbelievable this set is, a hundred bucks is just way too aggressive in our opinion. Flo's has the same list price, but once it was out for a while, the price came down - I sure hope it's the same with this set.
