Sorry, Hot Wheels, We Prefer These Wacky Star Wars Die-cast Cars

When Hot Wheels started making die-cast toy cars inspired by everyone’s favorite Star Wars characters, it seemed like a match made in heaven—or in a galaxy far, far away. But now that Tomica has revealed its own line of Star Wars-themed die-cast cars, we have to admit we actually prefer these wackier designs, especially the low-riding Vader.

The small collection features just five vehicles inspired by Darth Vader, R2-D2, C-3PO, Yoda, and a Stormtrooper. But the way Tomica has incorporated each character’s face into the front of every vehicle reminds us of Pixar’s Cars—but in a good way. The complete set looks like it might be a little hard to come by, though, based on the pre-order price of around $225. But you have until July, when they’re officially available, to save up.
