Micro Machines

Produced by Galoob in 1987 and currently owned by Hasbro, Micro Machines are a line of miniature scale vehicles and play sets. As well as producing their own vehicles the line held licenses for well-known TV and film franchises such as Star Trek, Star Wars, James Bond, Power Rangers and MIB, as well as producing a series of Rockin’ Wheels sets that featured the touring vehicles of famous bands such as AC/DC, Deep Purple and others. The images below are taken from the 1992 Galoob trade catalogue. Click pics to go bigger.

Rockin’ Wheels by Micro Machines

How cool are these Micro Machines official band tour vehicles! AC/DC, Deep Purple, Mötley Crüe, Cinderella … all logo’d up and ready to rock ‘n roll! 

There was also a Whitesnake set released, but this is not shown on the 1992 Galoob catalogue pages I scanned. As for the other bands in the line… never heard of them.
