In the lead up to San Diego Comic-Con, Mattel has been posting images of the cars from their upcoming Star Wars line of Hot Wheels on their official Facebook page. You can get a look at those images below, and you can expect to find them in stores starting in October.






Our friends at Jedi News also have your first look at the 501st Clone Trooper Car


… and the Tusken Raider car.


If you’re at SDCC, or plan on being there this weekend, you can see all these cars on display at the Hot Wheels booth. You will also be able to feast your eyes on the ultimate fanboy – and fangirl! – hot rod. Presenting the life-size Darth Vader Hot Wheels car!

Hot Wheels® and Star Wars™ join forces to create the ultimate ride for the dark side! The Hot Wheels ® Star Wars™ Darth Vader™ life-size car is complete with an LS3 engine, 526 horsepower, custom red line tires and heavy breathing sounds from the Sith Lord himself. Don’t miss the Darth Vader™ car when it rolls into San Diego Comic-Con International on Wednesday, July 23rd. At Comic-Con, you can also catch a sneak peek of the amazing Star Wars™ inspired Hot Wheels® character cars and a world of replica die-cast starships and play sets coming later this year, too!

Now you can vroooooooom all the way to the Dark Side in style! 😉

    These are absolutely adorable AND wonderful!!! I thought I was beyond buying Hot Wheels (etc.) vehicles once the girls grew up (our house was quite the motor cross circuit in the cars’ heyday in our household!), but I see I will HAVE to make at least one or two purchases. 😉 Too bad they aren’t full size. Now, wouldn’t that be fun to drive down the street in one of these cool cars! 🙂
