Fifty years after The Beatles released their classic tune “Yellow Submarine,” Mattel has partnered with the band to create a new collection of Hot Wheels cars based on the 1968 animated film inspired by the song. The toy line features seven vehicles, including a replica of the yellow submarine from the movie.
The other six cars are collectively called The Beatles Themed Yellow Submarine Assortment, and feature a variety of chassis shapes along with graphics from the film. Among the images depicted on the vehicles are cartoon versions of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, as well as one of the evil Blue Meanies. The names of the cars are the Bump Around, the Cockney Cab II, the Fish’d n Chip’d, the Morris Mini, the Fast Felion and the Kool Kombi. EW.com has posted photos of all of the new Yellow Submarine-themed toys.
The basic Yellow Submarine Hot Wheel will be available starting this month at all major retailers. The six-car assortment went on sale today exclusively in Las Vegas at The Beatles Shop in the Mirage Hotel & Casino, home of the Fab Four-themed Cirque du Soleil show LOVE. The collection also will be sold at Walmart stores throughout the U.S. beginning on Wednesday, June 15.
