"Last year in conjunction with the annual Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios, collectors of Pixar's die cast Cars characters were excited to find out that a new series of characters based on the Star Wars franchise would be released. Well, this year is no different as five new sets of Cars characters are hitting shelves starting today, May 16:
- Chick Hicks as Boba Fett
- Red as Chewbacca
- Ramone as Han Solo
- 3-pack featuring Luigi as C-3PO and 2 Pitties as Jawas
- 2-pack featuring Mater as Darth Vader and Doc as Obi-Wan Kenobi

Much like last year's characters, they will be available at shops throughout Hollywood Studios, but if you can't make it to the parks be sure to give the Disney Theme Parks ordering line a call at (877) 560-6477 and you should be able to order them at the regular retail price starting next Friday (May 23 - the first weekend is exclusive to the parks). If you would like to order any of the characters from the 2013 Star Wars Weekends, you can most likely order those still as well.
