This amazing set of Star Wars toy car concept art comes from a car designer that goes by the name of phenotyp. He says he was going through his archives and working on some portfolio stuff when he rediscovered these sketches he did for Hasbro back in 2008. As you will see in the images, each car design is based on a character from the the Star Wars universe. Here's what the artist had to say about them:
"I'd worked for them for a while (both at their HQ and freelance) a few years prior, and one day one of the dudes I'd worked with called me out of the blue and asked me if I'd like to work on one of their Lucasfilm license projects. The wanted to make a line of cars based on Star Wars characters, and wondered if I'd like to throw in.
"Um, does the Pope shit in the woods?
"They'd give me a character to design around, I'd spend one night sketching, send them for review, then render the chosen design the next night, and sketch on the next one, and send them for review. This was all in the evenings, after my 'real' job. Anyway, enough talk. Here are some of the sketches."
These things would have made for some pretty badass Star Wars toys. Too bad Hasbro decided not to move forward with them and bring them to life. Thanks to Oppositelock for the heads up!
