Title: Star Wars Hot Wheels
Post by: Muftak 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...

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.

Saw these at TRU yesterday.  At $5.99 CAD no thanks.  They're neat, they're not that neat.

I found them at TRU too and was blown away by the price.  But I figured since I was only interested in one, Vader of course, I picked it up.  I opened it when I got home and am actually impressed by the weight and quality of the car.  Was it worth $6?  Probably not, but I still like it.

Not sure how prices compare to regular retail since I'm not collecting these, but there are lots of Star Wars Hot Wheels ships/cars in-stock at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=as_li_qf_sp_sr_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=aps&keywords=star%20wars%20hot%20wheels&linkCode=ur2&tag=jedide-20&linkId=QBSFK2274M7FMXW7). 

Falcon, Slave I, Ghost, Y-Wing, Snowspeeder are all there for $6.99 each.

To save not looking?  Well worth the $6.99. :)

Started seeing the ships at retail this past week... ended up grabbing the Falcon and Slave I.
Title: Re: Star Wars Hot Wheels
Post by: Qui-Gon Jim on May 26, 2015, 10:45 AM
I grabbed a few of these at Target a couple weeks ago.  The base is designed to fit on a (child's) finger to simulate flying around.  These ships remind me of metal versions of Micro Machines, same level of detail but a touch bigger.  Pretty cool.  I grabbed the Y-Wing, Snowspeeder and the Falcon.  They also had the Ghost and Slave-1 (both of which seem to be the pegwarmers so far).

Walmart.com has some rolled back to $3.97.  Free ship to store.  Not a bad price.  I believe the Falcon, Ghost are there plus another... Y-wing or snowspeeder.

Got Wave 2 of the Die Cast ships at Target earlier. Red 5 X-Wing (with open S-foils), Red 3 X-Wing (closed S-foils) and the TIE Fighter. There's also a Vulture Droid from ROTS in the wave.

All the WalMarts near here got a huge skid with both waves in it.  They dropped their price to $3.92 as well.

Anyone else collecting the Hot Wheels ships?  I bought my son the remaining ships he was missing for Christmas, and I just picked up the 2-pack with the Star Destroyer and Mon Cal frigate.  The only one that eludes me so far is the Rebels TIE which is in a 2-pack with the Ghost.  I even have the two versions of the snowspeeder (Luke's is packed in with a "playset").

Where did you find the Star Destroyer/ Mon Cal Frigate?

I only have a couple of these, but that sounds like a must have.

I found it at TRU.  My son loves the ships more than he does action figures, so I have gone overboard with these for him.   :)  It is tough finding information on what is out, what to expect, etc.  Hasbro collectors have it good.  :)

I already have the Imperial Star Destroyer with the Mon Calamari cruiser, and Slave 1.

Ordered the AT-At and Snowspeeder 2-Pk from Amazon as well as finally adding the Rebels TIE Fighter.  That 2Pk was going for ~$5 on Amazon.

Been continuing to pick up OT vehicles from this line... I passed on a LOT of TFA stuff on clearance recently. I need to snag the Rebel Blockade Runner (rereleased in the Rogue One line), AT-AT and the Luke Snowspeeder from that playset and I think that's it.

Was this Mandalorian ship easy to find at some point. I don't remember this at all. Now I'm wondering what else I missed. I see there was a rebels a-wing as well.

Not super hard to find but not exactly common either. There have been several ships I have never seen at retail (especially in the 2 packs) but I did see this one. That rebels A-Wing is A huge pegwarmer though as it was in the initial floor shippers when the R1 mercy hit last year.
