The prototype will be unveiled at London’s Star Wars Celebration event in July.
Star Wars fans can see the new Hot Wheels Star Wars Prototype Armour Boba Fett Character Car, a European exclusive to London’s Star Wars Celebration event at ExCeL London Exhibition Centre, 15th-17th July.
To commemorate the early conception of one of cinema’s most popular characters, Hot Wheels has created a new look for the Boba Fett Character Car. Complete with an all-white colour palette, twin turbo engines, a rear jet pack and several of the bounty hunter’s weapons extending from the hood, this character car is a must-have for Hot Wheels and Star Wars collectors alike.
“I am a huge fan of Star Wars, so to get the opportunity to recreate classic characters as part of my job is a huge honour,” said Bryan Benedict, senior Hot Wheels designer. “I am excited to be amongst the fans and to unveil our exclusive Boba Fett car that I designed as a rat rod, because to me Boba Fett is basically a walking rat rod – with his banged up helmet and cool attitude. But this is a rat rod with super-advanced technology, and, in the case of our Celebration exclusive, he’s been given a pristine white paint scheme to match the prototype armour.”
Those visiting the Hot Wheels stand (S502) will be able to meet Bryan, who will be present on Saturday morning for a special car signing. There will also be a Hot Wheels panel at the Behind the Scenes Stage on Saturday afternoon, where Bryan will provide a preview of the upcoming autumn/winter Hot Wheels Star Wars diecast line. Bryan will also explain the design process of a Hot Wheels Character Car and poll the audience on what they would like next year’s Hot Wheels Star Wars Celebration exclusive car to be.
