THE HISTORY OF JOHNNY LIGHTNING DIECAST MODELS

The Johnny Lightning brand dates back to 1969, operating under its parent company Deluxe Reading. This business was a toy manufacturer working out of Elizabeth, New Jersey. Deluxe Reading created original toy products sold under names including Topper Toys, Deluxe Topper and Topper Corporation. A series of custom castings with speed-type wheels and metal bases were the first products for the Johnny Lightning brand.

Johnny Lightning focused on the diecast car model audience. The late 1960s brought consumers Johnny Lightning vehicle models and tracks. The Johnny Lightning company went on to develop castings with inflatable bladders for a new Jet-Powered line in 1970. Consumers could move these diecast model cars across tracks.

An unsuccessful public stock sale resulted in the Johnny Lightning diecast model line ceasing production in 1971. However, Johnny Lightning diecast molds and trademarks were acquired in 1994 by Tom Lowe, the founder of Playing Mantis. The Playing Mantis brand continued to build the Johnny Lightning name by creating 1:64 scale diecast models celebrating U.S. muscle cars, pickup trucks, race cars and Hollywood vehicles during the 1990s.

The Johnny Lightning brand was sold again in 2004 to RC2, giving the diecast models a branding transformation in 2006. Johnny Lightning saw new branding logos and packaging until the Japanese toy brand TOMY stepped into the picture in 2011 and ended production temporarily.

The company Round 2 LLC wanted to produce Johnny Lightning products once more, and in 2016, they purchased the licensing to Johnny Lightning. Today, you can find select Johnny Lightning diecast model cars commercially through retailers.
