Spin Master began its foray into Monster Jam. First announced back in 2017, this year marks the official start of a 10-year licensing partnership with Feld Entertainment Inc. as Spin Master takes the wheel as the new master toy partner for Monster Jam.

This season, driver Camden Murphy is taking control of the powerful Bakugan Dragonoid Monster Truck, which made its debut in the Stadium Championship Series this week. Murphy, the 2017 Monster Jam Rookie of the Year, is piloting the first Monster Jam vehicle to be directly inspired by an existing Spin Master franchise. Bakugan relaunched in December as part of a 10th anniversary revamp.

Spin Master’s new Monster Jam toy line is arriving at retail now. The lineup at launch includes:

  • World of Monster Jam TrucksThese Monster Jam play trucks embody the style and swagger of their real-life counterparts, complete with BKT tires, stylized chrome rims, an authentic chassis with chrome detailing and a molded driver. There are more than 100 Monster Jam trucks to collect, including Grave Digger, Max-D, Megalodon, Monster Mutt, and El Toro Loco. Each 1:64 scale single pack truck also comes with an exclusive collector’s poster and driver figure.
  • Rev ‘N Roar Monster Trucks: These 1:43 scale, authentic Monster Jam trucks rev forward or backward and play the iconic sound of Monster Jam trucks. These loud machines feature four wheel drive and a powerful, internal driving system so they can smash and crash like never before.
New toys from Spin Master’s Monster Jam include Kinectic Sand that mimics the action of real dirt.
  • Monster Jam Monster Dirt: From the makers of Kinetic Sand comes the all-new life-like Monster Dirt that mimics real Monster Jam track conditions. This gritty set includes a storage container and a ramp mold that adds a new level of fun and way to play with Monster Jam trucks.
