Two new Star Wars: The Force Awakens ships were announced today as part of Mattel’s Hot Wheels Elite series, as well as details concerning the mystery ship first announced several months back but never fully discussed. Expected some time in March 2016, the undisclosed 1:18 scale ship is actually Poe Dameron’s X-Wing fighter (HWDAG08), a central protagonist in the upcoming film and likely an important figure in the Sequel trilogy.
Slated for September, look forward to nabbing an X-Wing Resistance Fighter (MTDMK63) as well as a First Order TIE Fighter (MTDMT90).
As many of you already know, September 4th is when licensed Stars Wars vendors are allowed to discuss details concerning all of the new Star Wars-related merchandise connected with the upcoming feature film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, scheduled to open on December 18th. As fate would have it, we are headed out-of-town this Friday, so we’re going to have to wait until next week to start listing all of The Force Awakens collectible products we intend to stock. Happily, you can find more information concerning the announcement here: http://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-the-force-awakens-products-to-arrive-on-force-friday-september-4
Remember, may the Force be with you.
