Oh My God! Hot Wheels Killed Wicket! You Bastards!


It’s one thing to make a car that’s vaguely shaped like Darth Vader or Stormtrooper armor as a cool tie-in. But this might be where somebody should have said, “Hey, ya know what? Skin isn’t a costume.” Yeah, this new Hot Wheels looks like somebody murdered Return of the Jedi‘s primary Ewok and stretched his pelt across the hood of a vehicle because they could. Now, if you were a Stormtrooper on Endor, driving this around might be one way to intimidate the locals into ceasing their log barrages of your Scout Walkers – or, like Achilles with the body of Hector, it could lead to your imminent vengeance-killing demise.

Also, those beady eyes and that grill make it look more like a tarantula with all its legs ripped off than an Ewok – and that may even be a less disturbing notion.
