Let me start this off by saying I'm a longtime fan of the movie Star Wars. Most of my Halloween costumes growing up had me playing out some role in my parents' basement where I save the planet from would-be attackers from the Death Star. So, when I heard that Hot Wheels was building a ride for Darth Vader on a Corvette platform, I felt like a kid being left the keys to the candy store.
Hell, whether you're 12 or 62, who cares if the whole thing is fantasy as long as you keep it all in perspective?
The car, designed by Hot Wheels, will be unveiled this week at the annual San Diego Comic-Con, according to a Road & Track report, where some of the wildest fantasy stuff in the world of comics comes to life.
