Anyone buying these?

I find these really, really appealing, despite never having seen the show. Does anyone know how solid their construction is? I'd love to have a couple of them around, but they would instantly become Target Number One for my F1-obsessed five-year-old. If they can stand a little "enthusiastic" handling now and then without falling apart, I may take a chance; otherwise, I think there are Tomica versions of the same cars that are smaller but presumably much tougher.

This doesn't answer your question

I haven't handled one, but they are unbelievably gorgeous in person (and I have no attachment to the show). I was really blown away by how good this line looks. They're also bigger than what I had thought. Somehow I doubt that they would hold up against a five year old though, even if it's a five year old with really good taste in motor sports.

I'm sure someone will be along shortly who can actually answer the question.

This is megahouse, so they

This is megahouse, so they are pretty expensive, with pretty shoddy QC and weird design choices. My Super Asurada is a floppy mess, the flaps barely stay on and its got some kinda crappy paint apps. With that said, I still have the 11 and exsperion ordered and the ogre when it goes up. They would not stand up to anything other than a gentle glance. The smaller cyber formula collection are all plastic too with lots of easily breakable bits as well. The only durable ones I could think of are probably the original wind up model kits and the chara wheels asurada.

I appreciate the answer. I've got enough experience with similar toys that I figured they'd be delicate, but I was hoping that this lot might buck the trend. Thanks also for letting me know about the fragility of the small ones...guess I'll just have to wait for a more durable line (or a gentler kid...)
