No, these aren’t a new type of walker in the Star Wars Universe. They are a new die cast segment from Hot Wheels where they take the familiar character car concept and apply it to all-terrain vehicles. The All-Terrain Character Cars feature die cast parts and working suspension and come in four and six wheel configurations. The cars have been found at Walmart include Luke Skywalker X-wing Pilot, BB-8, First Order Stormtrooper and Darth Vader.
Speaking of playsets… it looks like Hot Wheels is going to have a Millennium Falcon Ahch-To Playset for Force Friday II. It feature Light Up features and 20 sounds and an exclusive Chewbacca (repack) character car.

Well if this doesn’t scream vintage flashback, I don’t know what does. There are multiple reports on the 6″ Elite Series Facebook Group of collectors finding brown hair and yellow hair variants of the Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise at Disney Stores.

A new Disney Store Elite Series Droid Gift Pack has been found at the Imagineering Campus Disney Store in Glendale, CA. The set includes BB-8, C-3PO and R2-D2 and retails for $60.00. Thanks to luchador71 for the heads-up.
A couple weeks ago we shared word that the Disney Store would soon be offering three updated Elite Series Die Cast figures in the US. Disney Store has confirmed via Instagram that they will be available in early April.
Members of the Elite Series Collectors group on Facebook are reporting* the discovery for 3 “new” Elite Series figures coming soon to Disney Stores in the UK (and the US). Soon, you be able to add Riot Gear Stormtrooper, Finn with Lightsaber and Squad Leader Stormtrooper to your collection. Also of interest is a slight packaging refresh for the line which looks to universalize the box to cut down the cost of printing, requiring only a sticker to differentiate each character.
Thanks to Corey for First Order Transmissions for the heads-up.
