Hot Wheels

Hot Wheels has had a few Nintendo collaborations in the past, and that partnership is continuing with a new Mario Kart product. As revealed by an Amazon listing, Hot Wheels Mario Kart Rainbow Road Raceway will launch in May.

The Amazon page actually doesn’t have much in terms of actual information. However, based on official photos, you’ll be able to race with Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, and King Boo down the Rainbow Road-inspired track. Lakitu is also hanging out at the front of the course.

Here’s a closer look:

Last year, Mattel teamed up with Nintendo on Hot Wheels Mario Kart die-cast vehicles and track sets. The line is now expanding with a few new products. As part of a recent [email protected] panel, Mattel gave a sneak peek as to what’s planned for the future.

First up are new drivers Cat Peach and Diddy Kong. The two characters will drive a standard kart and Pipe Frame Kart respectively.

Hot Wheels developer Mattel has revealed that Metal Mario will be joining the roster of the Mario Kart Hot Wheels collection later this Summer.

Combined with paraglider and all, Metal Mario will be available to purchase from Mattel’s website for $20 starting June 17th. The toy will also be coming to San Diego Comic Con a month later on July 17th. 

A couple more images of Metal Mario can be viewed below.

The Mario Hot Wheels we heard about previously are coming to store shelves soon. According to Nintendo’s Facebook page, they’ll be available this month.

A few different toys are planned for release. We’ll be seeing Hot Wheels based on the various Super Mario Bros. games, Mario Kart, and Dr. Mario.


Mattel is teaming up with Nintendo for an interesting product collaboration. As discovered by Brazilian toy site T-Hunted, six Hot Wheels cars based on Mario games are on the way.

Four of the designs are inspired by Mario platformers, and feature a Super Mario Bros. 30th anniversary logo. The other two tie into Super Mario Kart and Dr. Mario.

Here’s the full lineup:

8 Crate Delivery (Dr. Mario)
A-OK (Mario Kart)
Cool-One (Super Mario Bros. 2)
Dairy Delivery (Super Mario Bros.)
School Busted (Super Mario 3)
Volkswagen T1 Panel Bus (Super Mario World)

All of these Mario Hot Wheels are releasing in October.
