Fast & Furious | Ripsaw

09.01.2017 – The Ripsaw is one of the vehicles that stood out as the one the highlights in “Fate of the Furious” that Ludacris Bridges has driven in the final act of the latest instalment of the franchise.

“Fate of the Furious” was an instant hit that produced several merchandise based on the past films and its current one. Mattel produced several lines of “The Fast and The Furious” diecast cars based from the franchise and the Ripsaw is one of them.

Originally the Ripsaw was an experimental military-type vehicle as a family project, that was created by the Howe Brothers of Discovery Channel’s Howe and Howe Technologies introduced in 2001 at the Dallas vehicle show that caught the attention of the United States Army.

In fiction the Ripsaw first appeared in G.I. Joe Retaliation that featured Dwayne “The Rock “Johnson’s portrayal of Roadblock in the live action sequel. The vehicle was known as the “Thread Ripper” and for “Fate of the Furious” as its original name.

It’s actually a 2016 release with no change when The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine was released for 2017. This certainly stands out from the obscure Hot Wheels cars and other type of vehicles. Its shape and color palette certainly is something that jumps off the animated feature film.

The unique design of the Yellow Submarine have the elements that’s based from its screen counterpart that includes four periscopes extend from the top and the double four port holes are also present on each side. And it even has the two four-bladed propellers on the back. This fictional submersible does not match to the “real” world submarines, but it certainly captures all the elements based in the animated film.

“Ripsaw” is part of “The Fast and The Furious” series of diecast collectibles as part of F8 numbered 22 of 32 in the entire range that was originally priced at $7.00 AUD (PHP 280.00 pesos), which was on 20% off at Coles in Westfield Marion going for $5.60 AUD (PHP 224.00 pesos) until August 29, 2017.
