Flathead Fury is a Metal Maniacs car that was Mark Wylde's second car, after Spine Buster.

History

Beginning construction before Spine Buster was even destroyed, this car was partially seen being built in the Cliffside realm Mini-episode. It appears to be reminiscent of a Dragster, with an exposed cockpit and streamlined design. The car makes its debut in Breaking Point, when Wylde races Tork for leadership of the Metal Maniacs. Afterwards, Wylde uses this car in the Junk Realm, but collides with a spike ball near the end when he doesn't follow the apex, crashing the car. It is not seen again after this, as Wylde is captured by the drones.

Trivia

  • This is one of the only cars to have entered only one realm, others being Deora II, Slingshot, Rat-ified and ‘70 Plymouth Roadrunner.
  • The Metal Maniacs insignia is nowhere to be seen on Flathead Fury, perfectly representing Wylde’s situation in Breaking Point: even meaner, furious, completely reckless, only try to settle score with his brother and no longer care about his own team.
  • The die-cast car has Black flames instead of Gold-outlined Red flames.
    • It also has a metal unpainted spoiler instead of the Red spoiler in the movies
    • The model has a translucent canopy instead of the opaque Light Grey in the movies
