40th anniversary EVERYWHERE! JTA reader James F. sends us a couple images from his local HEB grocery store where he found repacked Hot Wheels vehicles in new 40th anniversary packaging. I see a trend with licensees. How about you?

We told you all at Toy Fair, now Hot Wheels comes clean and announces via their Twitter page that there is indeed a new relationship between Hot Wheels and Star Wars. Click through to read their Tweet and how you can find out more about it!
We told you they were coming back in February. But non-Star Wars sites claimed that our report was just old news and that they were just the previously announced "animated style" Cars-themed in Star Wars "costumes". Nope. We were right. JTA sponsors BBTS and EE are now taking pre-orders for REAL Star Wars themed Hot Wheels.

What? A logo that isn't Hasbro? Whatever could that mean? We have just learned that Mattel may have some Star Wars themed Hot Wheels items in the works and the debut could come in the form of a SDCC exclusive later this year. Stay tuned as we hopefully learn more soon!
