Stand back and gaze in wonder as two limited-time Hot Wheels™ Monster Tanks rise from the darkness: the Dread Dozer M48A2 Räumpanzer and the Fangula™ AE Phase 1!

The Hot Wheels™ challenge inspires people of all ages to let their imaginations run free and dream of becoming something bigger. This Halloween, we’re putting a new twist on that idea!

Based on two classic Hot Wheels™ vehicles, these Monster Tanks are ferocious, formidable, and fun. Like other Monster Tanks acquired from the Store, they’re eligible for both the x2 Crew XP bonus and the Monster Drops as part of our Halloween events. And yes, come Halloween week, their true monster forms will awaken…

Take a closer look at these two fiendish vehicles…if you dare!


Dread Dozer M48A2 Räumpanzer

The German Tier VIII Dread Dozer M48A2 Räumpanzer Medium Tank is inspired by the real-life M48A2 Räumpanzer in service with West German military forces after World War II. Fitted with the dozer blade from the M48A1, this vehicle was used by the Bundeswehr’s engineering units.

Given that history, the Hot Wheels™ Dread Dozer was the perfect basis for the Dread Dozer M48A2 Räumpanzer, which has its own blade fitted to the front of the vehicle for extra protection. Take advantage of this tank’s solid armor stats to plow through enemy lines!

The Dread Dozer M48A2 Räumpanzer also comes with a unique Crew: The Creeping Eye.

Fangula™ AE Phase 1

The American Tier IX Fangula™ AE Phase 1 Heavy Tank is based on the experimental AE Phase 1 that was developed in 1951. The design incorporated a four-track system that would keep the tank moving even if two of its tracks were damaged.

We’ve honored that development history by fitting the Fangula™ AE Phase 1 with a visually distinct set of tracks. Additionally, this tank combines excellent gun depression and solid penetration values with a well-armored turret to serve as an all-around battlefield behemoth and hull-down monster!

The Fangula™ AE Phase 1 also comes with the unique Hellion Crew.
