Report: Hot Wheels Unveils First Star Wars Car in 'Insider'


By Chris Seekell

The latest edition of Star Wars Insider magazine has revealed Mattel's first Star Wars model car. Pictured above, the 1:64 scale Darth Vader car will be the first in a continuing line of Star Wars merchandise from Hot Wheels. According to Insider, the Vader car will be first sold at San Diego Comic Con this summer, and will come in a special lightsaber display case. Mattel also will display a life size, drive-able version of the car at the convention.

Mattel's Jean Gomez told Insider, "We're going to launch a full line of Star Wars cars in the fall. All cars are cool and fast-looking, but we make sure the type of vehicle matches the character. So, for example, in the Hot Wheels world, Yoda is a mini car and Chewbacca is a big, powerful hauler."
