WWE action is also expanding beyond the ring with the introduction of WWE Nitro Machines. The fast-rolling, die-cast vehicles feature iconic WWE Superstars bursting out of the top of the cars. Each 1/55th scale vehicle is ready to race and the WWE Superstar is permanently attached to the vehicle. The WWE Nitro Machines collection includes the following:
· WWE Superstar John Cena in Muscle Monster
· WWE Superstar The Rock in Bull Machine
