From limited edition products, like the SEIKO watch collection, to the countless cosplayers in Stormtrooper outfits parading on the streets of Akihabara, Japan’s love affair with the Star Wars franchise is somewhat fanatical at times. In an effort to capitalize on the legion of Star Wars followers, rumor has it that Nissan created a Star Wars Special Edition vehicle. Based on the funky looking Nissan Juke compact sports utility crossover, the Star Wars Special Edition follows many of the same design elements found on last year’s BATMAN: The Dark Knight Rises x Nissan Juke Nismo one-off. Though no details are available at this time except a 24-second teaser video featuring a squad of Imperial Stormtroopers and the vehicle’s official unveiling date of August 26th.
Announcement Date: August 26th, 2013 (Monday)
