That's right – inspired by the upcoming film Fury Road, ThinkGeek has released the Desert Drifter series of Power Wheels battery operated vehicles for kids.

Who wouldn't want their child to have a skull-topped gear shift, working machine gun or flame-spouting exhaust pipes on their car?

Power Wheels Desert Drifter Mad Max 1ThinkGeek asks,

Have you noticed your child likes to play with cars, but in a very violent and anarchistic way? Do they set up elaborate chases complete with explosions and insane vehicular stunts? Think your young child could be the next Max Rockatansky (commonly known as Mad Max)? Well, it's time to find out with these Power Wheels Desert Drifters!

These really are what most of us adults would have wanted as a child – spikes, gears, the ability to crush skulls under out tires. It's wonderful.

Power Wheels Desert Drifter Mad Max 5

Says ThinkGeek

Your kids can pretend to be rogue gangs, by-the-book or disillusioned MFP officers, or just regular folks trying desperately to survive in a dystopian version of the future Land Down Under. These Power Wheels Desert Drifters have a top forward speed of 7.5 mph and can take quite a lot of hits (and driving) before needing a battery recharge. That's right, with Power Wheels Desert Drifters, your kids won't be fighting over gasoline – they'll be fighting over the extension cord. Just make sure they understand who runs Bartertown. YOU run Bartertown!
