Walmart Exclusive Star Wars Hot Wheels Preview

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Walmart just got new big bins of Fast & Furious and Batman assortments this week for 86 cents a pop.  It's a good deal.  Later this year, they'll get Star Wars Hot Wheels based on the 6 movies and the 2 most recent TV shows - 8 in all.   Hot Wheels has the scoop.


2733 Each vehicle is based on an existing Hot Wheels car, but with deco inspired by the movies - the Gearonimo is based on Anakin's Pod Racer, and the Spectyre looks like Luke's X-Wing helmet.

While not based on vehicles from the movies or the characters themselves, this batch continues a proud tradition from over the years.   Believe it or not, there are a lot of nifty cars dating back from the likes of Sega, Barbie, and more recently Star Trek on the chassis of these collectible cars - but the window for getting the good ones tends to be short, so your vigilance is required here.   Anticipate disappointment in your hunting, is what I'm saying.
