Star Wars Hot Wheels
« on: June 8, 2014, 08:11 AM »
Saw the design for the Darth Vader car in the new Insider.  Not where I was expecting this line to go,  but if I see one around it is definitely something I would pick up for the boys to add to their car bin.

Hoping to see more authentic designs from the movies, but I'm sure they will follow up with Fetts,  Stormies and Clones...
I live my life with no regrets...by taking absolutely no risks.

Looks like Hot Wheels is taking it to the next level...

Wonder if this one will end up in the Corvette museum after it hits Comic Con 2015.

Those are pretty clever.  I like them.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

The first case is up for pre-order at Entertainment Earth.  Case Pack = 12 cars for $48. 

No case breakdown available yet but based on the pics tweeted by Mattel, I believe these five are in the first wave -
- Darth Vader
- Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot)
- R2-D2
- Yoda
- Chewbacca
