Mattel has announced a Hot Wheels-branded remote-controlled version of Tesla’s Cybertruck. It is available to preorder now and will come in two sizes: there’s a 1:64 scale RC Cybertruck that costs $20 and a much bigger 1:10 scale version that runs for $400. Both are expected to ship in December 2020, but they’re limited editions and will only be available until they’re sold out, Mattel says.
The 1:10 scale version is described on Mattel’s website as a “hobby grade-radio-controlled vehicle that is off-road and rugged terrain capable.” It has functioning headlights and taillights, and two driving modes: “chill” and “sport.” Just like the real Cybertruck, it has a telescoping tailgate that slides out into a loading ramp for the bed.
Mattel says the body can be removed to reveal the “interior and access internal battery and drivetrain system.” The bigger RC Cybertruck even comes with a “cracked window vinyl sticker” in a nod to the now-infamous mishap from the real truck’s big reveal.
The 1:64 scale version is the size of a typical Hot Wheels car. It also has two driving speeds but fewer moving parts. Both versions were designed with help from Tesla.
