What It Is
Hot Wheels Monster Jam Off-Road Maximum Destruction Battle Set is an action-packed playset that brings the bashing, crashing, and monster-mashing action to basic Hot Wheels play. The set includes one Hot Wheels Monster Jam vehicle. To play, set up the figure and use the plunger to power the car under the monster. Or lift the ramp with the lever on the side and try to shoot the car at the monster's chest plate for some explosive action. To make it even more challenging, you can give the monster's torso a push to get it spinning. Mattel notes that for even more action, you can buy additional sets to connect via the Hot Wheels track system.
Is It Fun?
Overall, we think this is a fun and very well-engineered set. It's easy to reassemble the monster after it comes apart, and the unique kid-powered action will inspire all kinds of imaginative play. This will make a great stand-alone set or a dramatic addition to any Hot Wheels collection.
Who It’s For
The Hot Wheels Monster Jam Off-Road Maximum Destruction Battle is for ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
You can also use regular Hot Wheels cars on the track instead of the Monster Jam vehicles. However, while the Monster Jam car hit the monster's chest virtually every time, the basic Hot Wheels cars were much less predictable.
This set took us about 10 minutes to assemble, including applying the labels.
