Nerd News: Mattel Hot Wheels RC Tesla Cybertruck Sells out at Super Speed

I don’t usually write much about Hot Wheels, it’s a collectors market I’m not that familiar with so sadly I do over look it a little some times – although I do always check them out when I go shopping – that’s weekly… So I’m surprised I don’t have a decent collection of them already! However this is a story I really couldn’t pass up on because this product is seriously cool and it combines the cool design of not just Hot Wheels but also Tesla and throws in the awesome world of RC… Coming soon is this quite frankly amazing looking Tesla Cybertruck remote control car.

The remote control is modelled on the actual steering wheel design of the Tesla Cybertruck and it even comes with a free rolling cyberquad… This release is just too cool and only worked out at $100 a piece with a 2 per customer sales limit… This release was so cool in fact that it sold out – right away! To give you an idea of what we all missed out on though the numbers for this awesome vehicle are:

  • Run time of 20 – 25 minutes per charge
  • 12 mph top speed
  • Working headlights & taillights
  • The cyberquad can sit in the truck bed
  • 1:10 scale model
  • Will ship by September 15th 2021 for those who were lucky enough to snag one

As I said I don’t usually write about this sort of thing, especially remote controlled cars, however this item is so cool, and will one day be so iconic that I have no doubt that this is going to be an incredible collectible item. Even the box combines cool future tech looks with a retro feel that could easily contain a DeLorean model!

I'm a collector of pop culture items, with by far my biggest collection being in excess of 1,200 DVDs (yeah I still stay old school - can't wrap my head around the whole streaming thing yet), as well as various figures and Memorabilia (with most of these being McFarlane Walking Dead 5 inch figures, Funko Pop and Funko Pint Size Heroes, with a few other exceptions too). I'm a massive nerd and giant child at heart so feel free to have a chat about anything toy and movie related. My biggest movie passions are horror by far (especially slasher and zombie), sci fi and to a lesser extent action and comedy.
