San Diego Comic-Con kicks off July 17th, and pre-orders for the Mariokart™ Metal Mario Vehicle at the Mattel Shop ended June 23rd.
However, some people who pre-ordered the Metal Mario vehicle will actually get something different. A limited number will receive the Mariokart™ Gold Mario Vehicle instead!
The details about pre-ordering, and for buying it at Mattel’s SDCC booth, are below. But first, have a look at each of the convention edition collectibles you could score from Mattel!
Mariokart™ Metal Mario Vehicle ($20)
Hot Wheels brings Metal Mario to life from the fan-favorite Mario Kart franchise! Piloting a die-cast replica of a Standard Kart and equipped with a Power Glider, he soars above Rainbow Road on his way to another Lightning Cup victory. Accurate to the finest detail, it’s a display that is sure to have you shouting, “Bravissimo!”
Mariokart™ Gold Mario Vehicle ($20)
Congratulations! Getting this box means you’ve “unlocked” a super-special Gold Mario—a goal only the best racers can achieve!

Now, we need you to take note of the following VERY IMPORTANT DETAILS to ensure that you receive this or any other 2019 SDCC pre-ordered items.
- You MUST be an SDCC ticket holder. If you are not, then you will not receive any of your pre-ordered items.
- You MUST check in at the Mattel Booth (#2945) at SDCC to verify your pre-order. Here are the dates and times for check-ins:
- Wednesday, July 17: 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
- Thursday, July 18: 9:30 AM to 7:00 PM
- Friday, July 19: 9:30 AM to 7:00 PM
- Saturday, July 20: 9:30 AM to 7:00 PM
- Sunday, July 21: 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM
- You MUST present ALL of the following at check-in, and the names MUST match on ALL of them:
- 2019 SDCC badge
- Photo ID
- Order confirmation
- Once we confirm your order at check-in, we will ship your pre-ordered item(s) directly to you after SDCC ends. You WILL NOT pick up your item(s) at SDCC. We know you’ll be carrying around a lot of swag at SDCC, and we want to make it easier on you! Rather than having to carry around your Mattel item(s), we’ll have them shipped to you after the convention.
- If the item(s) you want sell out during the pre-order phase, you still have another opportunity! We’ll have a limited supply on hand for purchase at SDCC, too, so if you’ve got a ticket to the show, you’ll have another shot at them.
Remember – you MUST attend SDCC, you MUST check in at the Mattel Booth at SDCC, and your name MUST match on your SDCC badge, photo ID, and order confirmation for us to verify and ship your pre-order items to you after the convention.
Good luck, and have a great time at SDCC!
