Scalextric to do Star Wars sets for Xmas 2012

Scalextric is bumping up its car racing credentials by expanding into the Star Wars universe next Christmas, including speeder bike racing and Death Star trench racing with x-wings versus tie fighters (glow in the dark, no less).

The Scalextric Star Wars range will include Micro and Start sets, as well as collectable solo models. Characters and vehicles will, I am promised, be faithfully reproduced in precise detail, allowing fans to recreate the thrills of intergalactic racing.

As long as you don’t move into Pod Racing from the prequels, I’m cool, guys. Now how about some Hornby Star Wars train sets?


I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.
