Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™ 40th Anniversary X-Wing Fighter (Dagobah™) – $25
Luke Skywalker™ is marooned after crash-landing in a swamp on Dagobah™. He came in search of a legendary Jedi Master. Upon their first meeting, Yoda™ did not reveal that he was indeed the Jedi Master Luke was seeking. Instead, he tried to get a sense of who Luke was as a person, and found that the young Rebel was impatient and angry. Yoda™ agreed to instruct Luke, teaching him to be calm and developing his Jedi abilities. Yet the student was still reckless. He left Dagobah™ – without completing his training. Hot Wheels is giving homage to the cinematic masterpiece with this authentic highly-detailed die-cast starship. Re-create this iconic scene with a lever on the side of the packaging that lets you lift the X-wing Fighter™ out of the Dagobah™ swamp!
