The Tesla Cybertruck from Mattel

Hot Wheels and Mattel Creations’ 1:10th scale radio controlled Tesla Cybertruck sold out within minutes of launch. Hot Wheels Cybertruck R/C is a 1:10 scaled version of the groundbreaking electric truck. And at speeds topping 12 MPH, it’s considered one of the fasted R/C cars on the market. But like the real Tesla Cybertruck, you’ll be lucky to get your hands on one, as Mattel’s version sold out within minutes of being launched, despite the limit of two per customer. Customers might have a better chance of buying the Matchbox Tesla Roadster, which will be the company’s first die-cast vehicle made from 99% recycled materials and certified CarbonNeutral, available in 2022. All Matchbox die-cast cars, playsets and packaging will be 100% recycled, recyclable or bio-based plastic by 2030.
