VaultDoor

A closer look at the weapons on the vault door was shown in The Making of a Hero.

A closeup shot of the vault door was shown in the Making of a Hero promotional documentary. The documentary has yet to appear in full on any home video release to date. WB has has used short clips from it but always avoid showing these parts in their modern documentaries.

The Ninja Wheels were also shown in trading cards and movie guides.
