Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet was originally an 2010 April Fool's prank, but there was such a demand by fans that Mattel actually made it into a "real" product. This is Mattel's April Fool's message:
"Hey, Hot Wheels fans. We’ve got a special sneak peek of one of our hot vehicle releases for 2011…it’s Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet! We worked really closely with our friends at DC comics to make sure the details were perfect. Check it out here!"
This is Mattel's reaction to the massive fan request:
"After seeing your response to last week's April Fool's hoax (Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet), we're talking to our partners over at DC Comics and Warner Bros. about making this joke a "limited edition" reality. Details to come!"
The Invisible Jet cost $5 at San Diego Comic Con.
In 2017 the Invisible Jet was "rereleased". It was used as a Walmart Mail In promotion. Spend $20 at Walmart from 05/28/17 to 07/08/17 and mail the receipts to Mattel.
The Invisible Jet has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:

From the back of the 2010 card:

Specialty: Created by Amazon engineering, Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet can make trans-Atlantic flights without refueling. Wonder Woman can interact with her jet via telepathy and sometimes uses electronic devices in her tiara to command course and flight path.
FYI: Did you see our April 1st post on Facebook? This is what we were talking about, and we think we've captured every detail!
From the back of the 2017 card:
The original idea for Hot Wheels® Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet™ was an April Fool's prank on Hot Wheels® collectors. Hot Wheels® announced that it was going to show a sneak peek of a new model for the upcoming year and posted an image of Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet™ online. The response was so positive that Hot Wheels® decided to make the joke a reality and offer it as a Comic Con exclusive.
Now the story continues with the exclusive 2017 edition. Epically posed with her Lasso of Truth atop the impossibly fast Invisible Jet™, Wonder Woman is ready to tackle whatever obstacles come her way. Villains beware, her superhuman strength, speed and trademark bulletproof-bracelets are even more powerful when you don't see them coming!
