Just when we thought the hype of the Tesla Cybertruck seems to have finally died down, toy maker Mattel stirred it up once more with a pair of officially licensed Tesla Cybertruck remote control toys.
Unlike the actual pickup truck, you don’t have wait til 2021 to put it in your driveway (or in this case, inside your home) and you most certainly don’t need to shell out $39,990 for it.
The Hot Wheels Remote Control Cybertruck comes two sizes. A tiny 1/64th scale model that comes with a toy-ish pad-style remote controller and a glorious, pistol grip controller-equipped 1/10th scale with all the details imaginable.
Whichever you are gonna get, you be sure to get the one detail that matters most: cracked windows, in the form of stickers so you can choose whether or not to replicate the failed “bulletproof” window demo. Cheeky.
The 1:64 Hot Wheels R/C Cybertruck is Hot Wheels collectible size, measuring just 3 inches long. It is R/C car, but it also fits regular Hot Wheels track.
It is 2WD and has two modes of ‘drive’: Chill or Sport that enables it to reach up to a scale speed of a whopping 500 mph (805 km/h!!???). It has rechargeable battery, recharged with the controller.
The 1/10th Hot Wheels R/C Cybertruck, on the other hand, is everything you want in a Tesla Cybertruck.
It boasts functioning headlights and taillights, all-wheel drive with Chill and Sport modes, tonneau “vault” cover, telescopic tailgate that folds out into a loading ramp, removable plastic body to reveal a detailed interior, and it packs a 9.9V, 3,300 mAh rechargeable battery.
But here’s the thing. Hot Wheels Radio Control Cybertruck was unveiled today, but already the 1:10 is already sold out – notwithstanding its 400 dollars asking price. The Cybertruck fandom is indeed strong.
