ive had these since i was a kid. they have to be 15+ years old. when i first saw road warrior and mad max i was probably 7 years old i loved it, so of course i would want my mom to buy me apocalypse style toy cars :D

i have no idea what theyre called, ive seen them posted one other time on the internet and they didnt know what they where either. i have a few other old mad max style toys i can post later if i can find them.

they have launchers to shoot the cars at each other, i lost a few of the blade and ram pieces though. they look more fury road than road warrior actually.

If those are Matchbox, I believe they are Roadblasters, named after an arcade game at the time.
I didn't recognize any of yours against these pics, though.

those are before my time but i would have loved those if i was born a few years earlier :D

the cars i posted have the hotwheels insignia on them and a few numbers on the bottom. but from my searching i found one other person that posted some and no one knew what they were.

i cant find my other road warrior style toy cars i had. they are larger scale than the 1/64 scale hotwheels i posted.

i also have a tiny plastic car from the board game thunder road. no idea where that one came from but ive had it since i was really little.

The cars in the photos are from the Road Wars line by Hot Wheels released in the 1990s.
