Mattel Reveals Its SDCC 2019 Exclusive Hot Wheels Spider Machine GP-7
Mattel's version of Spidey's super-powered vehicle from the 1978 Japanese Spider-Man TV show will debut at San Diego Comic Con!
The countdown to San Diego Comic Con 2019 kicks off today! Mattel revealed one of its SDCC 2019 exclusive toys, and it's a classic -- the Hot Wheels® Comic Con Marvel Spider Machine GP-7! As seen in Japan's 1978 Spider-Man series, this flying four-wheeler was equipped with weapons galore, including machine guns and missile launchers inside its bonnet. It was driven by motocross racer Takuya Yamashiro, who gained his arachnid-like super powers from an alien.
Once he became Spider-Man, it became Takuya’s responsibility to protect the citizens of Earth from the Iron Cross Army -- and the Spider Machine GP-7 served as his wheels. But while the souped-up buggy could fly and fire weapons, that was just the beginning of its super powers. It was also a component in the transformation into the giant robot superweapon the Leopardon, which is used to defeat Spider-Man’s biggest, toughest enemies. (And it was probably even better at defeating rush hour traffic!)
Hot Wheels® authentically recreated the Spider Machine GP-7 in 1/64 scale, with full die-cast construction and Real Riders® wheels.
And you'll be able to buy it at SDCC 2019 for the pristine price of $15! You can pre-order your very own SDCC 2019 Exclusive Spider Machine GP-7 at shop.mattel.com starting today or purchase it in person at Mattel’s SDCC retail booth starting July 17. Limited quantities available.
Here's the fine print: All pre-sale orders will be shipped directly to the customer after SDCC. Pre-sale orders will NOT be available for pick-up at the event. Attendees will need to stop by the Mattel Toy Store booth to check in with their SDCC-issued badge. Once checked in, their orders will be released for shipping.
