Don't ask me why, but Hasbro and Takara Tomy keep trying to make small die-cast type cars... In 2003, the Japanese candy toy company Kabaya teamed up with Majorette of France to produce a one of series of die-cast Matchbox style cars for the Micron Legends series. The toys were packed on similar style Matchbox J-Cards that all featured an image of the Micron Legends (Densetsu) Convoy with the word CONVOY behind him, regardless of the car in side, with a roll of tart candies packed in.
