In the run up to San Diego Comic-Con, Mattel have been releasing images on their Facebook page of five cars that will form the first wave of Hot Wheels Star Wars characters cars coming this October – these include Darth Vader, R2-D2, C-3PO, Yoda and Chewbacca.

Expect to get new cars in the range every 2-3 months, and we have two exclusive reveals today/tomorrow thanks to our friends at Mattel. First up is a the 501st Clone Trooper from the prequels, click on the image for a closer look…

See this vehicle and more at San Diego Comic-Con later this week where you can also purchase the first Hot Wheel Star Wars car – Darth Vader in exclusive packaging featuring lights and sounds.
