You might have dropped interest in collecting Hot Wheels cars around age seven, but possess we got a collection to get you back in the swing of things.

To be premiered at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con, these red incredibly hot little toys are scheduled to hit shelves in October, so you can start saving your allowance money now.

Just remember not to take these types of out of the package and lose all of them in the yard.

Also, who are we kidding? Buy two, and play with one.


Chewbacca: Han Solo’s trusted Wookiee companion really would make a hell of a workhorse. Scorching Wheels reimagines him as a big, brawny, Unimog-style flatbed. Which, by the way, is carrying the Falcon.


Yoda: Imagine an innovative Fiat 500 Abarth, only taken and modeled after a frail-looking small green alien who’s not almost as helpless as he looks, and you’ve got the new Yoda car.

Full tale at Car and Driver through HASO.

Toys for those ages.
