“This is a dream come true,” said Block. “I never thought I’d actually have my own line of Hot Wheels cars!”

“When I was a kid they were all I played with. I’d collect them, jump them over things, send them flying off of stuff, race them around on the floor. I loved my Hot Wheels die-casts. So to be where I am now with my driving career and this new collaboration with Hot Wheels – not just for my own1:64 scale cars, but also for two different remote control versions – it’s amazing, I’m beyond stoked!”

Available at retailers like Toys”R”Us, Wal-Mart, Target, Kmart and Pep Boys, the Ken Block lineup consists of three products. The first is the 1:64 scale die-cast 2011 Ken Block Ford Fiesta Hot Wheels car. Available in both black and white, these toys have been benchmark of toy cars since Block was a child himself. They’re priced at just $1 so make a great gift option.

The second piece is the Hot Wheels RC Nitro Speeders Ken Block Fiesta. It’s a small, self-containing RC car and controller that lets you make Gymkhana 4-style stunts wherever you go. It also has the ability to go from 0-600mph in scale speed in just 1-second. It’s priced at just under $26.

Finally, the last piece is the 1:16 scale Hot Wheels RC Ken Block RC Stunt Car. It’s a fully functional remote control car that allows users to pretend they’re Block in one of his Gymkhana videos thanks to two different drift modes that allow the user to pull both wide and tight drifts with a one-touch control unit. Featuring a scale speed of 0-80mph in less than 2 seconds, it transforms any area it into an instant Gymkhana playground and is priced at just under $45.
