The RacerVerse set is packaged in a box with artwork from Marvel Comics, including the logo’s for Marvel, Hot Wheels, and Mattel Creations on the front, sides and back. Inside, is a black box that requires the tape to be cut to lift it up, to reveal the plastic case and the set.

The plastic case is used for display purposes, and can also be removed by cutting the cape at the bottom and lifting it up.

The set includes Iron Man and Thanos, both inside cars that features a light-up base, and activates by pressing the red Mattel logo button on the front. The light brings up the ramps just below the cars. The cars are not supposed to be removed, but look as though they can be by unscrewing the bottom screws at the bottom of the base. The orange ramp is below the cars, and pays tribute to the Hot Wheels playsets.

Iron Man comes with a blaster beam coming out of his palm, and Thanos comes with the Infinity Gauntlet with the Infinity Stones inside. Iron Man comes in his classic red and gold armor, and Thanos in his metallic gold and blue, with purple skin and the glove has different color infinity stones.

To turn the lights on, make sure the red button on the bottom is flipped to the on position, and since batteries are already included, you won’t need to replace it right away. It would also be recommended to remove the batteries while not in use to prevent battery acid leakage.

Overall, the Marvel RacerVerse set is surely is surely one you need to add to your collection, as it comes with two great Marvel characters that Hot Wheels collectors are surely going to want to add to their collection. This is a great display piece, so make sure to add it to your collection while you can.
