In addition to a line of character cars that sees Star Wars characters mashed up with hot rods, trucks, and convertibles, Hot Wheels also has a line of tiny but wonderfully detailed spaceships including everything from Poe’s new X-Wing to a gold-plated version of Fett’s Slave I.
And for the imaginationally-challenged Hot Wheels is even introducing a new accessory called the Flight Navigator that’s a handheld joystick you can attach any of the ships to. It features a handful of button-triggered sound effects that can be changed depending on if your ship is ‘bad’ or ‘good’. There doesn’t seem to be a neutral option, but would that ship actually make any noises? [Hot Wheels]
