Sonic Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Scorpion Special Glow Edition Action FigureMonster trucks are not my area of expertise. Sure I know Bigfoot and Gravedigger, and that Mattel let Monster Jam go to Jakks while just doing their own thing. Which seems to have worked, because now I got a Scorpion Special Glow Edition being distributed at Sonic Drive-Ins as a "Wacky Pack" (Happy Meal) prize.

This came bagged with some food and I had no idea it existed before we brought it home. Also I don't understand how it's a truck, or Hot Wheels at all. It's just awesome for what it is - a large, cheap glow-in-the-dark mechanical scorpion. You don't need to be told that it's great. It just is. You can and indeed should put large chunks of glowing plastic out as often as possible.

The toy is a thin - but not too thin - robot with a tail that's articulated in two spots, so it can swivel and it can "sting" a bit. There's also a silver version of it, but you don't want it. You want this one, with the weird buzzsaw around the mouth, the truckasaurus legs, and no specific obvious way of how it interacts with your toy trucks. I assume you can just shove them at each other and you can let them fight. That makes some sense.

Other than the moving tail, it doesn't do much - but it does glow pretty well for a thin toy. It's about 4-inches tall and 4 1/2-inches long, meaning it could fight some decent size Transformers, although those claws aren't pinching anything. And the buzzsaw doesn't spin. But it will go great in a closet with a black light bulb in it.

With minimal detail work, odds are this is one of those toys you'll find in a Goodwill bin for a quarter in a few years and should absolutely buy. I hope it holds up to the rigors of the toy box, where survival of the fittest is not always guaranteed. There is little here that should amaze in a technical sense, but given that it's a big piece of glowing plastic there's not a lot I should need to say or do to convince you to give this one a look. If you see it, get it. What else are you doing with your money? Get it. Do it now.
