Mars Curiosity Rover Die Cast Model - White and Black with 6 Wheels - From Hot Wheels

 

Launched in late 2011, NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover will be making its way to the red planet with an approximate landing date of August the 6th. To commemorate the occasion, Hot Wheels will be releasing a model of the rover in September as part of its 2012 assortment, which consists of 247 different vehicles. The Mars Curiosity Rover cost $2.5 billion to build and is nuclear powered, but fortunately, the Hot Wheels version is radiation free and should only cost a little over $1.
