In support of Women’s History Month, today Hot Wheels revealed four new character cars based on female headliners from Marvel, DC, and Star Wars. But the star of today’s miniature auto show is definitely the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman character car.
It looks like Mattel has decided to test the dedication of die-hard Hot Wheels collectors and completionists. The line’s first Minecraft-themed vehicle, the Minecart, is a perfect recreation of the one appearing in the game. So in other words, it’s nothing more than a box on wheels.
