There is no weird dream quite like the one where a tow truck shaped into the visage of Chewbacca hauls away a car version of C-3PO. Wait, sorry, what? That’s real? You can buy an actual toy of that delirious dreamscape? Well. Huh.


We loved the first series of Tomica’s bizarre Star Wars die-cast cars, but now the company is back with a whole series of 3” vehicles based on The Force Awakens, and they’re just as delightfully absurd (and slightly creepy).

Aside from Chewbacca, The new set features three villains—Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, a First Order Stormtrooper—and one hero, BB-8, who looks like an obscenely adorable Star Wars version of “The Homer” from The Simpsons’ second season. Like before, they’ve done a fantastic job of injecting the personality of these Star Wars designs into cute little vehicles. Somehow, even Kylo Ren looks strangely perky as a teeny matchbox care.

The Force Awakens series will be available next month, and will set you back $10 each.
