Disney Pixar Cars – Bob Pulley

This is somewhat of a rare sight. Not your normal find on the pegs, but I like this very much. Whilst I am having kittens over my 1/43 Cedric from Tomy, I think that for a standard Pixar Cars release, this is bordering on exceptional. The detail on this model is mental and more to…

Pixar blow out

Rip off merchants Wheel Collectors boasted that they got these first when they first came out on release. Looking to mug people right off, they whacked up the retail prices of these standard cars to almost double what they were worth – Jackson Storm was approaching double the retail! So upon a visit to Toy…

Disney Pixar Cars: Brad Winmiler

Just adding to the Pixar collection – nothing really exciting about this casting, but different enough from the protagonists. I am surprised that Mattel did not release an entire arena of characters – that would have been special. You do wonder what or how many of these will be released when Cars 3 comes out.…

Disney Pixar Cars: Towga Gremlin

More additions to the Pixar stash. I dread to think what will happen when Cars 3 comes out, but for the moment I am back filling where I can. I like the fact that the visor comes down on this character and as is normal with Pixar castings, the accuracy and capture is nigh perfect.…

Disney Pixar Cars: Japeth

Prior to the glut of Pixar models that are to be imminently there has been a spate of what I would say are final releases from the 2016 range. I quite like these Rust-eze fans cars. I know Jon Lassiter has a massive eye for attention to detail (as told by the VP head of…

Disney Pixar Cars: Dan Sclarkenberg

This character comes as part of the twin pack with Kim Carrlins. It looks a little on the bloated side to me and possibly not one of the better castings that has come out from the Pixar range. TBH, I am not sure how popular this twin pack will actually be………I can see only the…

Disney Pixar Cars: Kim Carrlins

Similar casting re-used for characters from the supporting crowd at the Piston Cup, this casting comes as a two pack with Dan Sclarkenberg (musings to appear shortly). Nothing special at all – for me, this is just a variation casting on an existing mould. Unless you are a completist, this will really add not huge value…

Disney Pixar Cars: Andy Vaporlock

I am beginning to like these Pixar models that are from the Lightning McQueen Rust-eze fanzone. The weathered, rusty look is applied really well. I have mentioned this a few times now, but these models are simply not for the child. They are not protagonists, they are not significant. But the collector will sniff them…

Disney Pixar Cars: Galloping Geargrinder

He only had a role which lasted less than one minute in Cars 2, so I have no idea why I bought this model. Completion/completionist?? TBH, this model is a bit useless – it does not have go faster wheels nor is it robust in the hands of a little person – so why on earth…

Disney Pixar Cars – Frank

Wow, this was one I had been after for ages. Mattel’s oversized models are few and far between, so when you get the opportunity don’t miss it up. Frank was one of the original characters from the first movie, so it is apt that this has found its way into the Pixar collection. The wheels…
