Like Star Wars? Like Die Cast Pixar Cars Characters? You’re in luck!

Star Wars Diecast Pixar Cars Announcement

If you’re a fan of the Disney Pixar die-cast Cars characters, you’ll be happy to hear that a new line has just been announced. The team at Inside The Magic is at the Disney Consumer Products press event, “Star Wars Celebration VI – Collector Panel”. Among the many announcements revealed, one that particularly caught our eye was the release of seven die-cast Cars characters based on Star Wars. Six of the characters have been revealed in photos posted on Inside The Magic’s Twitter feed, with a seventh slated to be revealed soon.

Here are a few photos of the Cars characters that were posted by Inside The Magic (click to enlarge).

UPDATE (08/26/2012) – The final car was released today and although many people speculated it would be Doc Hudson as Obi-Wan Kenobi, the final car will be Fillmore as Yoda. Who knows, maybe they’ll continue the line and end up releasing an Obi-Wan version later – one can only hope. Thanks again to Inside the Magic for this update!

Personally, I think the tractors as the Stormtroopers and Luigi / Guido as C-3PO / R2-D2 are hilarious!

It was also announced that the characters would also be released as a set of pins as well.

UPDATED – As a side note, the folks over at http://www.takefiveaday.com (the authority on all things Pixar die-cast cars), sent an email reminding me of the original Mattel Darth Mater that was created in 2008 as a one-off for a children’s charity. To view the original Darth Mater, signed by John Lasseter, view some additional photos below or click here for more info.
