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

An assortment of 1:24 scale die-cast replicas of some of the monster trucks featured in the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live competition. The line includes the Dodge Charger R/T, the Hotweiler, the legendary Bigfoot, and the newest addition for 2020, Megajolt.

This assortment features everything we genuinely enjoyed about the smaller set that we also reviewed, such as the fun tidbits on the case insert, but unfortunately also enhances one of our biggest gripes, namely the generic suspensions. Given how well-detailed the cars are otherwise, and unlike their smaller brethren which we could excuse due to scale, it feels like a missed opportunity that more precision cuts weren't made, or alternate schemes used for this very visible part of the truck's design.


Is It Fun?

Yes; the trucks are fun, impressive playthings that should match well with any larger scale model cars around the house when looking to recreate the excitement of a monster truck rally at home. Because of the resealable packaging, it should also make an excellent piece for those who'd rather display than play.

Who It’s For
Monster truck enthusiasts ages 3+.
