Hot Wheels Builds Real X-Wing Race Car For Comic-Con

July 22, 2016

This is the real x-wing race car that Hot Wheels built for this year's Comic-Con (previously: the Darth Vader mask car they built for last year's). It can go from 0 - 60MPH in 12 parsecs and I don't f***ing know I'm just typing words here. It's a car that looks like an x-wing fighter, what else do you want me to say? "Something about your penis." GOOD CALL. You know that scene in The Empire Strikes Back where Luke uses the tow-cable launcher on his snowspeeder to bring down an AT-AT? That was actually inspired by my penis. "The tow-cable launcher?" No, the size of the AT-AT's legs. Nailed it, George!

Keep going for two videos, the second of which shows the actual build.

Thanks to Carlos, who has every intention of going to Comic-Con and getting his picture taken dry humping this car. Dream big!

    0 to 60 mph in 12 parsecs... a parsec being 1.9174x10^13 miles...

    That'd take what... maths* ... about... 8,755,042,056.6 years.

    Over twice the age of the Earth and our Solar system (about 4.5-4.6 billion years), but still not as old as the Milky Way galaxy (about 13.4 billion years).

    Good news is the sun will die in about 5 billion years, so if you set off today, the Earth will be a dead rock before you hit 2 mph.

    Goddamn I'm bored.

    You're sexy when you're mathy.

    Yeah, talk to me nerdy, baby.
