Johnny Lightning is Making a Comeback. . . Again!

Johnny Lightning has had a storied history. Introduced in 1969 by Topper Toys to compete with Hot Wheels, Johnny Lightning was a hit for the high speeds achieved by their early models. Topper Toys went out of business in 1971, and in 1994 Playing Mantis toys picked up the Johnny Lightning name. In 2005, Playing Mantis was purchased by RC2, which was later purchased by TOMY. TOMY stopped production of Johnny Lightning in 2013, and Round 2 Corp. has just picked it up. 

Round 2 is the natural destination for this classic American line. They have done a great job bringing back other discontinued products and reestablishing them in today's market. They have revamped such brands as AMT, MPC, Polar Lights, and (of course) the mighty American Muscle. We are proud to showcase the first releases that Round 2 has concocted for Johnny Lightning!
