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

The Marvel Hot Wheels character cars line is a set of reissues from past assortments, in addition to three new entries for 2020. Returning to the line are Deadpool, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Hulk; new to the line are Storm, Cyclops, and Magneto. All cars are sold separately, and feature some very fun and creative designs.

The Street Fighter V Hot Wheels character cars line features equally creative vehicles themed around characters from Capcom's Street Fighter line. Included in this set are mainstays Ryu, Chun-Li, Blanka, M. Bison, and Vega.

Is It Fun?

Absolutely! Despite the distinct lack of a "Mango Sentinel" in the Marvel set, both sets feature some really fun and creative designs, such as the '60s-vision-of-the-future-inspired Magneto design and the wonderfully '90s aesthetic of Cyclops' car...right down to the Jim Lee-designed torso strap! The Street Fighter V set impressed with items such as Ryu's car (featuring the character's hair and headband being intact) and Bison's truck form feeling like a knowing reference to the 1994 animated film's post-credit scene.

Who It’s For
Marvel, Street Fighter, and Hot Wheels enthusiasts ages 3+.
