Hot Wheels Mario Kart gets 100% more bling with Pink Gold Peach

Mattel is adding to its Hot Wheels Mario Kart collection with the first Pink Gold Princess Peach, and you’ll be able to get this very bling-up toy at the SDCC if you’re there this week.

Don’t worry if you’re not able to do this, though. In addition to being sold in person at SDCC, this die-cast figure will later be available online via Mattel Creations (opens in a new tab) starting at 9 a.m. PT on July 22. We don’t have pricing yet, but judging by previous models, the Hot Wheels Mario Kart Pink Gold Princess Peach will cost around $20.

For those counting, this isn’t the first metallic figure from the Hot Wheels Mario Kart line to launch at SDCC; Metal Mario was available during the 2019 event, with Gold Mario as a special variant that was only given to a limited number of pre-orders.

While it doesn’t look like there’s an alternate version of Pink Gold Princess Peach (which makes sense, considering it’s the only metallic peach in the video game), it still comes in a cute presentation box. . You can see it closer in the image below.

It’s no surprise that Mattel is back with another Hot Wheels Mario Kart exclusive for SDCC 2022; the range has proven to be very popular in recent years, and it continues to grow with new and increasingly complex tracks. Last year saw the launch of a Rainbow Road course, for example.
