The New G Gets a Mini Me

Earlier this week, we took a closer look at the all-new G 580 EQG — an electrified version of Mercedes’ iconic G-Wagen.

Now, let’s take an even closer look (like, seriously, you have to get closer to even see it) at Mattel’s latest die-cast model in honor of the new release.

This little number, crafted at a 1:64 scale, nails the robust design of the G-Class with meticulous details, and it sports a chic South Seas Blue Magno finish with a classic black interior, just like the original.

Plus, it’s eco-friendly like it’s life size counterpart — made from 99.5% recycled metal and over 81% ISCC-certified plastic. It's all part of their grand plan, dubbed “Driving Toward a Better Future,” which aims to green up all their toys and packaging by 2030.

If you want to park one of these lil’ blue babies in your collection, it's currently going for about 0.02% of the cost of the real thing at $29.99, so it’s really quite a deal if you think about it.
