The dolls are not only the women, however. There are droids and there is even a Kylo Ren doll and a Chewbacca one. But, for the most part these are female figures. Much of the voicework on the series is done by the people who play those characters in the movies and on the cartoons like Star Wars Rebels.

Rey and Leia

I found the Jyn Erso Hot Wheels Character Car at Walmart today along with a few other cars. I found a couple of cars that I liked but were not character cars. There was another Hot Wheels ’17 F-150 Raptor as part of the Hot Trucks line. I have a few of them and this one is red. I like the different trucks that Hot Wheels has made so when I find them I pick them up. I also saw a ’55 Chevy Bel Aire Gasser. This is part of the Hot Wheels Flames series. The last car that I picked up was the Slave One Carship. I’m not totally sold on the whole Star Wars Carships series but Slave One looked really good so I got it.
