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.

Yakface and Flyguy are back after the holidays and the release of Rogue One to ring in the new year with the latest in Star Wars collecting and news – including the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope. New, unannounced items have been hitting retail as well as huge clearances. This and much more on Episode 108 of The Realm Recap.
The unofficial “Go Rogue: A Star Wars Collecting Checklist” is now available for download. As additional information comes to light, we will amend the checklist and post a notice when a new update/download is available.
UPDATE: The third and final version (3.0) of the checklist is now available for download.

Good luck to everyone heading out tonight!
Yakface and Flyguy are back again this week to discuss the latest leaks and reveals for Go Rogue Friday on September 30. Grab a warm cup of Jawa Juice and get the scoop on news from Hasbro, Hot Toys, Hot Wheels, Gentle Giant, Funko and more on Episode #104 of The Realm Recap!
We are “going rogue” and producing an independent downloadable PDF checklist (similar to last year) to guide collectors through the toy aisles on September 30 and beyond. As of now, we are including most products announced (and unannounced) for Hasbro, LEGO, Funko, Jakks Pacific, Hot Wheels, and Disney Store.
And as last year, not all items will be available on Rogue/Force Friday, but in lieu of any of those brands providing anything “official”, we felt it would be in collector’s best interest to know what to expect/budget.

While browsing a few new product listings at Entertainment Earth, I came across this item in one of the Hot Wheels Starship assortment cases:
2x Starship Raven Deluxe vs. X-Wing
Is this the name of a Rogue One specific vehicle? It looks like it based on a quick Google search of “Rogue One” and “Raven Deluxe”.
