Hellcat toys for the holidays

by Patrick Rall on

When the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat made the toy world in the form of a red Hot Wheels mainline earlier this year, it proved to be a hot commodity and hard to find in some areas. More of those red Hellcat Challenger toys are hitting local stores and, better yet, there are two new Hellcat Hot Wheels along with a remote control car from Jada.

The first Hellcat Charger this year was the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT which, like the red Hot Wheels Challenger, doesn’t actually sport the Hellcat name. The Hellcat head logo appears on the fenders, and I suspect that it will have the Hellcat head stamped on the chassis, just like the Challenger. This piece was to arrive for 2016, but it has already hit stores in some areas.


Hot Wheels has already made a second 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, but on this new, blue toy muscle car, the Hellcat head logo doesn’t appear on the body; instead, it has black and red stripes package with the Dodge hashmark logos on the sides and hood. This car is part of the Hot Wheels Then and Now series, so there is a matching 1971 Dodge Challenger with the same design scheme. These items are in stores now and seem to be readily available.

Finally, Jada has created a 1:24 scale plastic remote-control car in their Big Time Muscle series. The packaging says “Hellcat” on it, while the plastic car itself appears to have all of the features of the full size car, with the exception of some 5-spoke wheels. These are on sale now, but not all stores have them yet.

As time goes on, we are likely to see more Hellcat Challenger and Charger toys, but for now, Hot Wheels and Jada are your two best shots to take home an affordable Hellcat to sit on your desk or shelf.
