In line with the latest Fast & Furious movie release, toy maker Mattel will launch the newest edition of its Hot Wheels NFT Garage Series on May 22. The collection will include iconic vehicles from the movies, such as Dominic Toretto’s 1970 Dodge Charger, Brian O’Conner’s 1969 Camaro and Suki’s Honda S2000 featured in 2 Fast 2 Furious.
The Hot Wheels NFT Garage x Fast & Furious, priced at $20 per pack, will be hosted on the Flow Blockchain, which uses a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism.
According to the official website, this mechanism is more energy-efficient than the traditional proof-of-work method. The energy required to create a virtual collectible on Flow is significantly lower than when uploading an image on Instagram.
Within this feature drop, collectors will find four distinct rarities to explore. Each pack consists of three items classified as Common, two classified as Uncommon and they also have the potential to get one Rare or Super Rare item.
Collectors can obtain virtual collectibles from Mattel by purchasing virtual packs through the Mattel Creations platform, similar to buying physical items from their store.
Each NFT in the collection has distinctive features, such as original artwork and detailed narratives about the showcased vehicles. These tokens offer fans more than just ownership — they provide an immersive and meaningful experience that strengthens their connection to the Fast & Furious universe.
Mattel’s other NFT collections to release in May
The Fast and Furious collection is among Mattel’s most recent NFT collections. In collaboration with OnChain Studios, Mattel launched a series of Star Wars-inspired digital collectibles known as Cryptoys on May 4.
Cryptoys’ collection of Star Wars NFTs comprises 15 distinct “digital toys” featuring famous characters such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Darth Vader. The NFTs are also minted on the Flow blockchain.
The Star Wars NFTs will be distributed via digital “holocrons” inspired by the Star Wars universe, resembling data storage devices from the iconic science fiction films.
These NFTs come in five distinct cartoonish skin styles. If collectors choose to purchase a “blind box,” the character they receive will remain a mystery until it is opened, adding an element of surprise to the collecting experience.
Mattel also has collaborated with Boss Beauties to introduce the Boss Beauties x Barbie digital collectibles. This collection pays homage to the diverse range of 250 careers in the Barbie line.
It aspires to empower women and girls by instilling the belief that they can accomplish anything. The collection merges the distinctive styles of both Barbie and Boss Beauties. It showcases various career paths, such as artists, astronauts, CEOs, doctors, pet vets and pilots.
The Barbie NFTs, available at MattelCreations.com for $25 per pack, are designed to be easily accessible for newcomers to Web3. The collection presents various rarities, and each pack includes four Boss Beauties x Barbie collectibles that are randomly selected.
Early access to the collection started on May 10, preceding the official launch on May 18, which aligns with a collaborative event at Veecon.
The Boss Beauties x Barbie virtual collectible packs will contain NFTs of different rarity levels, offering access to exclusive digital and real-world benefits. Each pack will have two Common cards and one Uncommon card. The fourth card can be of any rarity, which includes Super Rare, Ultra Rare and Exclusive.
The Ultra Rare NFTs, accounting for only 0.67 percent of the total supply, provide access to a special limited-edition Barbie Career of the Year doll set. On the other hand, the Exclusive NFTs, comprising just 0.47 percent of the cards, grant the holder a ticket to the captivating World of Barbie exhibition in Los Angeles.
