So, I've been ambivilating over these after spotting the stock yesterday at my TRU. Something feels so so wrong about them, especially at $3.99 a pop. Yet, I don't quite understand why I feel the need to grab a few as ..cough.. stocking stuffers. Thoughts? Anyone else seen the line?

I have looked at them quite a few times, but I really just don't find them interesting...

BUT - if/when they venture into starships/vehicles that look like small film props, I may bite...

:wink:

Snagged the Vader, will get R2 at some point, but those are the only one's that interest me so far.

Just saw a few today at Target and they were $3.49 there. Sadly, the .50 savings over TRU wasn't enough to get me to buy.

I got one (R2) today as a secret santa gift. I've looked at them a few times at Wal-Mart, sadly... that's the only Star Wars toys my Wal-Mart has. The price is really hard to swallow for such a small car. Reminds me of the line of SW cars you can get at Disney... just over priced small cars. They look good... just not that good.

There are some more details on playsets and a carry case on Entertainment Earth, some have pictures. Not seen these reported, only know of the cars, ships and the Death Star track. Oh and there are Marvel sets too.

I've seen the x-wing deathstar set
if they do ship styled cars
It'd be cool to see like a sandcrawler hotrod or something

Saw these at Target today - $4.99 each - not in Hot Wheels section, instead by the empty figure section.

Found the first wave of ships at Target as well - I only bought the Ghost, but the Falcon was very tempting. I decided to wait until they release an episode VII Falcon with modifications. I imagine they'll use the same mold with a different dish, and perhaps some altered deco. What a great sculpt though - better than the Ghost to be honest.

I don't have any interest in these but I saw new Hot Wheels at Walmart in Kirkwood, MO today, including Kylo Ren.
