Hot Wheels unveils new Star Wars Armour Boba Fett Character Car

Mattel has unveiled a new Hot Wheels Star Wars Prototype Armour Boba Fett Character Car to commemorate the upcoming Star Wars celebration event.

Hot Wheels has created a new look for the Boba Fett Character Car, which comes complete with an all-white colour, twin turbo engines, a rear jet pack and several of the bounty hunter’s weapons extending from the hood.

“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 designer at Hot Wheels.

“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.”

Fans will be able to get their hands on the new car at the event, which takes place at London’s ExCel centre next month.
