A Tiny Spock Leaning On A 1964 Buick Riviera Is The Best Hot Wheels Car Ever

1

San Diego Comic-Con is just around the corner, which not only means we’re about to get tantalizing looks at next summer’s blockbuster films, but also a mountain of exclusive toys and collectibles. The convention hasn’t even started yet, but Hot Wheels might have already won the whole thing with this exclusive 1964 Buick Riviera featuring a badass-looking Spock leaning on the hood.

The die-cast car is based on a well-known photo of Leonard Nimoy, in his full Spock getup, who celebrated the success of the original Star Trek TV series by buying himself a 1964 Buick Riviera and then posing with his new ride on the studio’s backlot.

It’s weird to see Spock standing near a vehicle not destined for space travel, but from the looks of it, the 1964 Buick Riviera was at least as large as the USS Enterprise, and it was probably able to carry more passengers and crew.

So how can you add this to either your Star Trek or Hot Wheels collection? The good news is you don’t need to be at Comic-Con to buy the car and its included 3D diorama. It will be exclusively available online from MattyCollector.com for $20 once the convention gets under way, although presumably in limited numbers, so don’t drag your feet.

Hot Wheels Unveil Beatles’ Yellow Submarine 50th Anniversary Collection

Hot Wheels aren’t just for kids anymore; they’re for the Beatles fanatic, too. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ 1966 song “Yellow Submarine,” Hot Wheels will release a special collection to accompany the animated film.

The collection includes the Hot Wheels Yellow Submarine replica, complete with orange track-compatible wheels, as well as an assortment of six cars featuring the art of the iconic 1968 Yellow Submarine film. Fans will appreciate the collection’s nod to the movie, with vivid colors, creative designs, and, of course, John, Paul, Ringo, and George adorning the packaging. And even though the film’s Blue Meanies were music-haters, they get some love from Hot Wheels with their own “Kool Kombi” tour van.

The Beatles-themed assortment pack will first hit shelves on June 9 at The Cirque du Soleil Beatles Shop at the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, before rolling out to Walmart stores in the U.S. on June 15.
