Tesla Cybertruck gets the Hot Wheels treatment
Upon its debuted, one or two of the reveal attendees may have mentioned something about it looking more like a toy than a for-real truck. Now, Hot Wheels is giving the Tesla Cybertruck the full toy (and collectable) treatment. In the true spirit of Tesla, the new models are electrified.
The two radio-controlled Hot Wheels toys are described by MattelCreations.com as, "Hot Wheels packs the power and performance of the futuristic Cybertruck into two small-scale, remote-control vehicles: a track-compatible 1:64 scale and a limited-edition hobby grade 1:10 scale. It's the only way to drive the Cybertruck in 2020!"

Hot Wheels, which is owned by Mattel, the same company that sells Barbie dolls, has already sold out of the larger 1:10 scale size model, which retailed for $400. It will likely hit an eBay store near you shortly after shipments begin for a much higher price .
There is a chance that Hot Wheels will opt to make more of the models available. They're offering a signup page where prospective buyers can input their email address to be notified if additional production capacity is confirmed.
The 1:64 model is just $20 and will be available to ship on December 15, 2020.
