Metal Mario has a need for speed and he finally has an outlet for it now that he’s going to be a Hot Wheels toy.

Metal Mario is joining the Mario Kart Hot Wheels lineup this summer, ready to race regular flesh Mario and the rest of the non-metallic gang on the bright orange tracks. 

Take a look at him, paraglider and all:

If we’re talking metallic Mario Kart racers, Metal Mario has gotta be one of the top metallic racers out there. Sure, Pink Gold Peach is a good one too, but Metal Mario is the original, debuting back in 1996 in Super Mario 64.

This particular Metal Mario Hot Wheels toy is inspired by the character in Mario Kart 8 with a matching metallic kart and paraglider to match.
