Disney Pixar Cars – Paul Oilkley

A rather unique casting of the Citroen H here which instantly appeals as this is very rarely created as diecast yet the model is totally flawed.

As this character is part of the British pub scene in Cars 2, the inclusion is odd. Firstly the van was never sold in the UK. Secondly production ran from 1947 to 1981 – so why is the model sporting 54 UK plates?!

So the child will not notice this, but I need my questions answered. Surely a MkI or MkII Transit would have been a better choice or has this just been a very poor oversight on the part of Pixar and Mattel.

Don’t get me wrong, I really do like the casting and it is , but it is chronically flawed. All rather annoying – this should have been a good collectors casting.

One thought on “Disney Pixar Cars – Paul Oilkley

  1. Come on, that doesn’t make it a flawed casting… and even if these were not sold in the UK when new, they are realtively common now as food trucks there. I saw two last year, one in London and one in Portsmouth.
