Burger King "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" Bronto King Drive-thru

This is the last toy in the Burger King "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" tie-ins to the 2000 movie of the same name. It's the Bronto-King Drive Through and it's the most elaborate of the set. It features the building proper, a porte-cochere, a large palm tree supporting the porte-cochere, and a car with Fred and Barney. The car has a wind-up handle on its right side and when placed along the edge of the building is supposed to hug the walls of the building while driving round-&-round. It will stop by means of a small lever below the porte-cochere roof which, when one presses down on the crown, releases the car for another drive.

You'll notice there's no video with today's entry. The surface I photograph these toys on is pretty slick and many of them simply have a hard time getting the right traction. I've had that problem with several battery operated planes as well as this toy. So no video - sorry! I'll have to come up with something to photograph these toys on that will look good and allow for traction, but that's a project for another day. For now though Enjoy The Pictures Bettina & Fritz Berg :)
