Spider-Man walks in the footsteps of Thanos and gets a Mattel Hot Wheels exclusive vehicle! Sort of!

It isn’t Peter Parker’s Spider-Man and his famous (infamous?) Spider-Buggy or anything (which already got a Hot Wheels version). No, this is Supaidaman aka Japanese Spider-Man and his Spider Machine GP-7. And you can get yours at San Diego Comic Con 2019.

Supaidaman aka Japanese Spider-Man is a weird, weird, weird thing. It was a live action Spider-Man show from 1979/1979 that has very little to do with Spider-Man but helped bird the Super Sentai (Power Rangers) world. For reasons unknown to everyone but the Japanese creators of the show, Spidey got a giant robot named Leopardon and a car, the Spider Machine GP-7.

Several versions have been released previously of Leopardon and the Spider Machine, but now you can own your very own American Hot Wheels version… If you make it to SDCC.
