IDEA: Vanguard Pictures won plenty of fans with its first two, unbranded Nitro Warriors films—see them here and here—exquisitely made stop-motion shorts that showed toy cars in wonderfully frenetic car chases. Among them was Mattel's Hot Wheels brand itself, which loved the way the films showed off its miniature vehicles.
