Soon, Mattel will be releasing a Commemorative Series of Star Wars Hot Wheels vehicles to celebrate the 9 film Star Wars saga. These special vehicles will have a raw (ZAMAC-like) finish and as a special bonus, will each include a part to build a Death Star. You can see in our Master List the 9 vehicles being released. The first case mix can be preordered now through Entertainment Earth.
It looks like a few of the vehicles from Star Wars Resistance will get some sort of recognition in the toy aisle this year as Amazon.ca has listed 3 entries for the Hot Wheels Starships line. They include Kaz Xiono’s Fireball, Torra Doza’s Blue Ace and Hype Fazon’s Green Ace.
We’ve had listing for 3 long-rumored Hot Wheels Characters for some time on our Master List and today, via Tim C. in the Star Wars Hot Wheels Collectors Facebook Group, we get the first look Jar Jar, R5-D4 and R2-Q5. Click on through for a closer look.
Jayson and Flyguy are back after 6 months to discuss our thoughts on 2018, what’s to come in 2019 and the latest news in collecting. We touch on our purchases for the past few months and dive into some of the rumors revealed lately. All this and more on the triumphant return of the Realm Recap!
UPDATE: MP3 audio file now available for download
Mattel also is repacking several previously released character cars for 2019 but introducing a couple new “First Appearance” car molds as well, including a great Porg car! Click on through to check them out. Codes for these and more have been added to out Master UPC/DPCI/SKU List as well.
Hot Wheels continues to expand their line of character cars with new takes of existing cars. The Action Feature Series comprising of 4 cars feature deployable weaponry! Click on through through to check out hi-res images.
We’ve updated our running list of upcoming and rumored products slated to hit stores and online throughout 2019. We’ve purged most of the released 2018 items from the list but they can still be found here for your reference.
We’ve had these two in our master list for some time but Walmart has finally updated with images for the TIE Fighter Pilot and Chewbacca & Porg Character Cars from Hot Wheels. As you can see, the packaging features a black Star Wars logo on a white background — like Hasbro’s Star Wars: Resistance line and LEGO’s (leaked) packaging mockups. Plan on seeing a lot of this look for 2019. Click on through for the carded shots.
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.
