To celebrate Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary, Mattel is releasing this really neat San Diego Comic-Con 2016 Exclusive Star Trek ’64 Buick Riviera Hot Wheels Car and Spock 1:64 Figure Set! The Blot especially loves the toy’s backstory. As the story goes…when the Star Trek series first blasted off into the stratosphere, Leonard Nimoy, the soon-to-be-famous actor who made Mr. Spock one of TV’s best known sci-fi characters, rewarded himself by becoming the proud owner of a stellar ’64 Buick Riviera. So proud, in fact, that he posed for an iconic photo while dressed in full Starfleet uniform with his car on the back lot of the TV studio.
Hot Wheels proudly pays tribute to that photo and the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek with this 3D diorama featuring a beautiful Hot Wheels edition of the ’64 Riviera in a full die-cast body and chassis, with Real Riders wheels and a 1/64 scale Mr. Spock figurine. It’s a highly logical way to honor the milestone and the actor! This collectible box set will retail for $20 exclusively at the Mattel SDCC booth.
