Marvel Monster Trucks: With Great Power!

Spidey MobileIf you're a fan of Marvel Comics, then you know about Marvel's monsters like Fin Fang Foom and Tim Boo Bah. But are you ready for Marvel's Monster Trucks?

Well get ready to rumble, you V-8ers, Red Staters and Import Haters!

Marvel Entertainment, no doubt a division that rests somewhere between Marvel Comics and Disney, has expanded its deal with Feld Motor Sports, the motor sports entertainment company (and owners of the Ringling Bros And Barnum & Bailey Circus, go figure).

That expansion includes "new products featuring Iron Man and Spider-Man custom-designed monster trucks to be featured on the Monster Jam tour."

Oh yeah!

And if you can't get to the stadium to watch the action live, Mattel will be making die-cast replicas of the trucks to display on your shelves or race down your Hot Wheels track.

Feld also has plans to add trading cards, posters, calendars and other toys featuring the mighty Marvel Monster Trucks. Some of the products are scheduled for early 2011, and the t-shirts and other branded apparel will be on sale in time for Christmas this year.

Now when will DC team-up with Volkswagen to launch the Swamp Thing?
