LA Auto Show: Nissan Celebrates Star Wars The Last Jedi With 7 Themed Vehicles

Anyone who’s followed this site for a while knows how much I love it when mainstream properties I love cross over with the automotive industry and/or culture.

So, when Nissan revealed the Star Wars: Rogue One edition Nissan Rouge last year, my head just about exploded.  I was seriously considering buying that Nissan Rogue just for the limited edition Death Trooper helmet that came with it.

Yes, I realize I need help…

Anyway, this year Nissan doubled down on their partnership with Lucasfilm and brought not one but seven Star Wars themed vehicles to the LA Auto Show to celebrate the opening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi opening this month (Yes, I bought my tickets like a month ago).

This isn’t the first time Nissan has done this as there was a X-Wing themed Rogue at the LA Auto Show last year as well but this time around they went full on with nearly every vehicle in their current line up.

There’s an Nissan Rogue based off Poe Dameron’s X-Wing complete with BB-8 droid, an A-Wing Nissan Rogue sport, a Nissan Maxima themed after Kylo Ren’s Tie Silencer, a Tie-fighter Altima, two more Maximas themed after Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma’s helmets respectively, and making its debut at the show was a massive Nissan Titan Truck based off the new AT-M6 walker used by “The First Order”.

I wasn’t able to get shots of all the vehicles because my brain was too busy melting but luckily Nissan provided plenty of their own photography as well.

Also, if you didn’t know already, the red carpet premiere for Star Wars The Last Jedi is this Saturday and rumor has it, these vehicles will be making an appearance at the event.

Unfortunately, Nissan didn’t announce any new Star Wars special edition production vehicles but I’m sure there is probably one in the works.

For now check out all the shots of the vehicles in the gallery below.  Also if you want to see how they all came together, check out the behind the scenes video below as well.
