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 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.
