In a "Ho Racing Guide" prepared by Racemasters there are pictures of (2) VW Bugs: The Boss Bug #9450 and the Bad Bug 9451. These are not baja bugs.

I've never seen them on ebay or anywhere else. Did they ever produce them?

I wanted those 2 cars so bad! VW simply said NO! They will not be produced by Tomy. (I, however, am building a master of my own to cast, eh!)

yeah, the last thing a car company should want are toy cars made of their real cars... I guess the concept of creating brand loyality and recongnition with kids is too much for these people to grasp.

Never really understood the license procedure. Companies pay millions to get their logos on a NASCAR, yet they want to be paid if you want to put their logo on a toy car. As far as I'm concerned, if a company doesn't want the free advertising for putting their company logo on one of my toy cars, I'll find someone who does.
If someone wanted to put my company logo and website address on their toy cars, I wouldn't mind at all.
