Spider-Man Gets a New Car - As A Hot Wheels SDCC-Exclusive

Of all the various iterations and adaptations of Spider-Man over the years, one of the most beloved and bizarre is the live-action Japanese Spider-Man series from 1978. After gaining his spider powers from an alien, motocross racer Takuya Yamashiro received a super Spider-Man car outfitted with weapons and gadgets that served as a key component of the Leopardon, a giant Spider-Man robot.

Spidey's souped up Japanese ride is getting the Hot Wheels treatment next month at Comic-Con International in San Diego as an exclusive die-cast re-creation of the Spider Machine GP-7.

Built at 1/64 the scale of the version seen in the series, the car may not be able to transform into a robot like its television counterpart, but it does comes in a cool, stylish box reflecting its Japanese origins with meticulous attention to detail.

The model car is available for pre-order directly through Mattel's website for the retail price of $15. Models will also be available to purchase at the Mattel booth at Comic-Con International next month while supplies last. Pre-orders will be shipped to online customers directly and will not be available for pickup at Comic-Con International.

Comic-Con International in San Diego runs Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21.
