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.
Back in February a leaked image was floating about showing a 3.75″ scale TIE FIGHTER heading to the Force Link 2 line from Hasbro. Surprisingly, it didn’t drop with the release of the first wave of Solo merchandise, but we can now report, thanks to Brickseek, it is coming soon. Slotted in as the first “Class C” vehicle for this line look, the price is expected to be $39.99. Due to the angle of the leaked image, it is unclear if this is the standard TIE or the cool TIE BRUTE that we briefly saw during the pursuit in the maelstrom, but I’d expect the standard TIE configuration based on products already released by Mattel and LEGO. The UPC, DPCI and Walmart SKU have been added to our Master List. Expect to see the first images of this at SDCC (if not sooner).

I made a couple late additions and corrections to the official “Unofficial Checklist” for tomorrow’s Solo: A Star Wars Story merchandise launch. Give it another peek to so you have the most recent information including today’s surprise reveals.
Here it is! Our official “unofficial” checklist for this Friday’s merchandise launch for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Within the pages you will find the recent officially announced products as well unannounced products that we’ve been revealing exclusively here for months. Brands covered are Hasbro, Funko, LEGO, Mattel, and Jakks Pacific. There are several products that are on the list that will come out throughout the year* (i.e. not available on Friday, April 13) but I felt it best to include them anyway so you can plan ahead. They are coded with red boxes for easy identification.
This is version 1.0 so if there are any major announcements prior to Friday, I will add them.
*Subject to change/cancellation
Fans of Hot Wheels character cars can look forward to several new models tied to the launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story as well as other characters from the saga. I managed to find about 16 new individual UPCs and SKU for Han, Chewbacca, Lando, “Nemesis”, “Hades”, Nien Nunb and others. I also found what looks to be a new line of “Lightsaber Series Vehicles” featuring Rey and Darth Vader. You can find all of the UPCs/SKUs listed toward the bottom of our 2018 Master List.
