Hot Wheels unveil Beatles' 'Yellow Submarine' 50th anniversary collection — exclusive
From ew, Hot Wheels aren’t just for kids anymore; they’re for the Beatles fanatic, too.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ 1966 song “Yellow Submarine,” Hot Wheels will release a special collection, which EW can debut below, to accompany the animated film.
The collection includes the Hot Wheels Yellow Submarine replica, complete with orange track-compatible wheels, as well as an assortment of six cars featuring the art of the iconic 1968 Yellow Submarine film. Fans will appreciate the collection’s nod to the movie, with vivid colors, creative designs, and, of course, John, Paul, Ringo, and George adorning the packaging. And even though the film’s Blue Meanies were music-haters, they get some love from Hot Wheels with their own “Kool Kombi” tour van.
The Beatles-themed assortment pack will first hit shelves on June 9 at The Cirque du Soleil Beatles Shop at the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, before rolling out to Walmart stores in the U.S. on June 15.
