EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

An assortment of trucks featured in the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live show, this 2020-released line of die cast trucks (for ages 3+) includes The '70 Dodge Charger R/T, 5 Alarm, Demo Derby, Dairy Delivery, All Beefed Up, El Superfasto, the Hot Wheels Racing truck, and the legendary Bigfoot! All trucks are sold separately and include not just crushable cars (which can be quickly folded for crushing), but also fun information about the trucks on the back of the packaging.

We generally enjoyed the cars, however, we were disappointed by the generic suspensions featured across all the trucks. We understand it's very difficult to get the kind of precision pictured on the box for a mass produced item of this scale, but still expected a little better from a company such as Mattel. We also found the cars a little difficult to crush without applying excessive pressure.

Is It Fun?

Yes; the trucks look great, move well, and for the most part are excellent recreations of their real life counterparts (aside from the suspension issue we mentioned).

Who It’s For
Monster truck enthusiasts ages 3+.
What To Be Aware Of
The crushing cars are a little too sturdy.
