Hot Wheels Concept Series

I haven’t seen these anywhere besides Gamestop, but for $4.99 these little Hot Wheels Concept Series vehicles scream old school Star Wars to me and are an automatic purchase.

For all I know, they’re hitting Walmart, Target, etc. – but I’ve seen no evidence of this in my neck of the woods but they really are fun oddball items.

Thoughts?  Would anyone like the see an upsized 3.75″ scale TIE Fighter like this at some point from Hasbro?  I think I would.

What would be even better than Hole in the Ground Pro’s custom resin diorama props?  How about actual injection molded plastic accessories and playsets?
