Cars 3: Roscoe

cars 3 roscoe
"We always let our guests start right up front." -Roscoe

Today I'm taking a look at another fun Mattel 1:55 scale Cars 3 diecast...and hey, what do you know— it's not Piston Cup racer this time! Here we have Roscoe, a brand new character just released a few weeks back (I found him at Target). It's about time I found something new on store shelves, right?

As shown in the screenshot above (sorry for the bad quality, but I snapped it from the only video I could find of this scene), Roscoe is the host (also known as the "gatekeeper") of the Crazy 8 demolition derby at the Thunder Hollow Speedway. This is a fun and unique character that I'm excited to have and the perfect addition to my collection of demo derby cars.

He has a great expression and an overall fantastic likeness to the character in the film—not to mention some nice mud detailing! A solid effort from Mattel.

If you're having a fun time collecting all the super awesome cars from the Cars 3 demolition derby scene, then you won't want to miss Roscoe here. Snag him if you have the chance since he's a bit rare at this point! This release even comes with a sweet mini poster checklist to help you keep track of your collection (seen in a previous post HERE).

If you're having trouble finding Roscoe in stores, be sure to check out current eBay listings HERE or Amazon using the direct link below.

Cars: "Race Around Radiator Springs" Art by Joey Chou

Cars "Race Around Radiator Springs" Art by Joey Chou

As mentioned in yesterday's post, I had a lot of fun visiting Cars Land this past summer and seeing all the new artwork released celebrating its five year anniversary. I purchased most of the prints there (in the 4x5" postcard size), one of them being this "Race Around Radiator Springs" piece by one of my favorite Disney/Pixar artists, Joey Chou!

If you've been following my posts (or social media) for a while, you know how much I've gushed about Chou's work in the past. If you missed my reviews on his previous works, check them out HERE! He's done some amazing Pixar prints based on The Good Dinosaur, Up, Finding Dory and now Cars.

Chou's style is incredibly adorable. It's the perfect balance of minimal designs, bright and soft colors and simple shapes/lines. I couldn't begin to pick a favorite of his, but this one is up there for sure! It just may be his most detailed yet.

Cars "Race Around Radiator Springs" Art by Joey Chou

I love the inclusion of the minimalistic Radiator Springs buildings, Willy's Butte, and the field of tractors. I also really appreciate how the car light flowers, cactuses and mountains fill the foreground and background, giving the art fantastic depth—everything is composed masterfully. Not to mention best friends Mater and McQueen look out of this world cute!

Below is a photo of inside Ramone's House of Body art in Cars Land where I found this print and many more. I've already reviewed most of them (check my "art" label to the right of this page), but there's still a couple more to go which I'm excited about.

Note: This should also be currently available at the Wonderground Gallery shop at Disney Springs and Downtown Disney

cars land house of body art pixar cars

Disney·Pixar Cars fans, you won't want to miss out on this print. Get it while you can! And, if you have the space, it's also available in a bigger matted print size and an even bigger wrapped canvas size (as seen in the pic above). This postcard size is a convenient size (as much as I wanted to go bigger) and affordable at only $4.95.

As usual, I greatly look forward to what's next from Mr. Joey Chou. Hopefully a Pixar Coco piece or something for Incredibles 2? Time will tell! Whatever it might be, consider it purchased. Find out more about Joey Chou and his art on his Tumblr, blog, and Facebook page. If you like what you see, give him a follow on Instagram and Twitter as well!

Cars: "Cozy Cone Arrival" Art by Michael Murphy

pixar Cars "Cozy Cone Arrival" Art by Michael Murphy

While visiting Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure this past summer, I was excited to stumble across a bunch of new artwork by various artists—each bringing their own style and giving their own take on the world of Cars. I hadn't seen some of the pieces prior to going, so it was a fun surprise to behold when I walked into the Ramone's House of Body Art shop. One of the prints that stood out to me is this one right here called "Cozy Cone Arrival" by artist Michael Murphy, which I picked up in this affordable 5x7" postcard size for $4.95.

I had never seen anything from or heard anything about this artist before seeing this design, so his unique style really caught my eye. Ultimately he focuses on modern architecture and emphasizes it using bold colors, straight lines and minimal details—and that's exactly what he does here with the iconic Cozy Cone Motel. It's very retro looking, which I really like. It's an interesting style for sure and may not be for everyone, but I thought it would be a worthy addition to Pixar art collection!

Learn more about Michael Murphy on his site "Super Sonic Modern" HERE and be sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

Cars 3: Tommy Highbanks

Cars 3: Tommy Highbanks

Today I'm jumping right back into my Mattel Cars 3 1:55 scale diecast collection and taking a look at Tommy Highbanks, also known by his sponsor Faux Wheel Drive No. 54! I know, these Piston Cup stock car racers aren't the most exciting of the diecasts (since they're all more or less the same mold), but hey, they must be documented with the rest of my collection. Tommy here is no exception!

As shown in the screen shot above (sorry that it's a blurry image, but I had to resort to one of the Cars 3 trailers), Tommy can be seen whizzing by the camera in several shots at the beginning of the film. Tommy superseded Johnny Blamer, who was the Faux Wheel Drive racer seen in the original Cars. And yes, Tommy and Johnny look almost identical to each other; so much to the point I wish there was a bit more of a contrast in their designs. 

Cars 3 mattel tommy Highbanks Cars 3 mattel tommy Highbanks

However, Tommy does get replaced by "next-gen" racer Herb Cubler in Cars 3—who we'll also be getting as a diecast single later on this year. Now THAT one is different and cool looking. I'm excited for that release. This one is pretty average, but us Cars collector have to get all the Piston Cup racers! They're essential.

Even though Tommy here was released clear back on May 1st (with the initial launch of Cars 3 products), he is still very easy to find on store shelves (If you're in the US, Walmart, Target and Toys R Us are your best bets). If you're looking for this one still and would rather just pick him up online, check out my direct link to Amazon below.

Happy hunting!

Cars 3: Piston Cup Showdown Game

cars 3 piston cup showdown game review

Start your engines! Tonight I'm taking a look at this super fun Cars 3 inspired game from Spin Master called "Piston Cup Showdown." This is essentially a plastic, kid powered racing game version of the classic "Red Light, Green Light" with a simple premise: the first racer to reach the Piston Cup wins!

HOW TO PLAY—
It's Lightning McQueen VS Jackson Storm. Who will win? After the batteries are inserted (requires 3 AAA, not included), hit the top of the Piston Cup to turn on/begin the game. When the light turns green, each player pumps their "gas pedal" button as fast as they can and the cars will inch forward towards the Piston Cup trophy. Slow down when the light turns yellow and be sure to be stopped before it turns red! If either or both racers are caught pumping after the light turns red, the announcer will tell you to move back to start and that "you don't win the Piston Cup by cheatin'..."

As mentioned, just reach that Piston Cup before the other racer does and you win the game! Pull back the cars to the starting point and play again. It really is that simple, but it's very fun and very effective—even for us grown-ups! Admittedly, my wife and I have played this a few times on our own and even she had a fun time.

cars 3 piston cup showdown game review

Here's everything that comes in the box. There's really only nine pieces and it only takes about two minutes to put together. Once assembled, the entire game/track measures about 22" long.

NOTE: See it in action on YouTube HERE.

cars 3 piston cup showdown game review
cars 3 piston cup showdown game review
cars 3 piston cup showdown game review

This game is fast pace and features lights, sound effects and phrases. The box suggests that it's best for kids ages 5+ and I would agree. My four year old nephew had fun with it when I tested it out with him, but he didn't master the whole concept of stopping when the light turned yellow and didn't want to keep pushing his racer back to start. I could understand his frustration at that age, so I just went with it. It does require some strength to hit that button and to do so rapidly.

I picked this up at Toys R Us for my birthday back in May, but I'm sure you can find it wherever games like this are sold (Target and Walmart perhaps?). If you'd rather just pick it up online, I've included a direct link to Amazon below! Retail is $19.99.

I can highly recommended this for all those Cars 3 fans out there! What do you think? Do you have this game? Let me know your thoughts on it in the comments below.

Pixar Animation Studios Store Stickers

pixar ball animation studios stickers

Tonight I'm taking a look at several AWESOME Pixar stickers that were purchased—and only available at—the famed Pixar Studio Store in Emeryville, CA! In case you didn't know, the Pixar Studio Store is located in the Steve Jobs Building on the Pixar Animation Studios campus and is only open to employees and their families (that's right—sadly it's not open to the public). However, some "strangers from the outside" are welcome to shop the store if they're invited to tour the studio. Inside you'll find a ton of amazing exclusive/limited items. A Pixar fan's dream.

Some of you out there reading this have been lucky enough to visit Pixar and shop there...and that is amazing! To that I say...jealous. I've always wanted to go, but have yet to have that opportunity. One day though! Until then, I'm again grateful for my friends who have sent some really fun items to me from their visits to the store. With that said, another big thanks to my friend [Disney freelance Artist] Jerrod Maruyama who surprised me with these in a recent care package! Super generous.

These stickers are SO cool. They are for sure the quality type of stickers that can be used to decorate a notebook, laptop, desk, car windshield...whatever! I haven't decided where they're going to go, but you know I will soon enough. On my iMac maybe? Either way, I'm so thrilled to have a Luxo ball sticker—plus anything with the basic "Pixar Animation Studios" logo automatically wins in my book. I'm excited to place these around, wherever they might go!

What do you think of these stickers? Do you have a fave? If you've been to the Pixar Studio Store, what was your experience like? Shout out all your thoughts in the comments below.

Cars 3: Jack DePost

Cars 3: Jack DePost

Hello and welcome once again to another Mattel Cars 3 1:55 scale diecast review! Today I'm taking a look at Jack DePost (or better known by his sponsor, Tow Cap No. 4), yet another Piston Cup racer seen at the beginning of the film. Jack is the successor of Rusty Cornfuel, who was the Tow Cap racer (with the same number) seen in the original Cars. Their designs are different, but ultimately extremely similar.

This diecast was first available at Kmart stores during this year's Kmart Cars 3 event on Saturday, June 17 (that's where I picked him up). This is not a Kmart exclusive however; it was more of what they called a "first to market", as in Kmart was the first to get him, but I believe he's already had a wider release.

Cars 3 mattel Jack DePost

Currently Jack is only available on a single card like the one I have here, but I'm assuming we'll see him re-released in other multipacks in the future. Be sure to visit your local Target, Kmart, Walmart or Toys R Us if you're still looking to track this one down! He should be pretty easy to find. This is a very basic release (not too much to go into here, hence the short review), but he's essential if you're trying to complete your Piston Cup racer collection.

Cars 3 Buck Bearingly (View Zeen)

Today I'm coming back to my Disney·Pixar Cars 3 collection to give you a brief look at another Mattel 1:55 scale diecast...Buck Bearingly, or better known by his sponsor View Zeen (No. 39)! He was one of the first Cars 3 characters to be released this year back on May 1st.

As shown in the screen shot above, Buck Bearingly is a background Piston Cup racer seen at the beginning of the film—only to be replaced by a "next-gen" rookie soon after. Buck is the successor of Ryan Shields, who was the View Zeen racer (with the same number) seen in the original Cars. Their designs are different, but ultimately extremely similar.

Top 10 Toy Story Toys That Need to be Made

Top 10 Toy Story Toys That Need to be Made

I'm going to start off by stating the obvious here, but in case you missed it, I'm a gigantic Toy Story fan and collector. The original Toy Story is what started my love for Pixar back in 1995 and remains my favorite Pixar film (well, can I count the whole trilogy as one?) all these years later.

I started collecting Toy Story toys (now, to be specific, we're talking the full scale/movie size versions of the characters here) virtually as soon as the movie hit; but even as a five year old, I realized that a lot of Andy's toys weren't available and desperately hoped they would get made. The main characters were produced, sure—Buzz: ✅  Woody:  ✅  Rex: ✅  Hamm: ✅  Slinky: ✅  Mr. Potato Head: ✅ Green Army Men: ✅  RC: ✅ ...and so on. Heck, even a full scale Mr. Mike came out—but what about all the other secondary toys? I got what I could, and still continue to get what's made available, but there are some seriously cool characters missing that I'm still hoping (almost 22 years later) get made one day.

Over the more recent years, a couple gaps have been filled, but they've been few and far between. Like I was ecstatic when a full scale Zurg finally hit shelves, when we finally got a trio of Pizza Planet aliens and when an official "Toy Story Ball" was finally made. With the release of the "Toy Story Signature Collection" by Thinkway Toys (2009-2011), new and updated versions of the main characters were released, which was awesome, but I was still left clamoring for certain others.

Top 10 Toy Story Toys That Need to be Made

With all that said, here is my TOP 10 list of Toy Story toys that STILL need to be made!
Note: I know some of these characters are available out there in roundabout ways (like obscure foreign limited releases, customs, etc.), but I'm talking about wanting official mainstream (Disney Store/Parks, Mattel or Thinkway) definitive replicas of these characters.

10.) TROLL
Yes, the Troll in Toy Story is based on the real life Troll toy (from the classic early 90's line) and yes there are plenty out there with pink hair that you can purchase and customize (which many fans have done). BUT there has never been an official release of Andy's troll with the flower bikini. I would love to see that release happen.
 

9.) CHUCKLES
There has never been a full scale Chuckles toy released. If you Google him, you'll see some pretty convincing customs, but none of them are official. The closest thing out there (which I ended up settling for) is the Disney Store plush version. I haven't given up hope quite yet though!


8.) MR. SHARK
"Look, I'm Woody! Howdy, howdy, howdy..." Everyone remembers the hilarious rubber shark that resides in Andy's toy chest (even if his screen time is limited to only a few seconds). Despite being a fan favorite (due to his one classic line), an official version of this character has never been made. Diehard Toy Story collectors often find and buy real life rubber shark toys to fill the gap in their collection, but it's just not the same.


7.) ROCKY GIBRALTAR
Rocky here has a decent amount of screen time in the first Toy Story, so I'm shocked that there has never been a full scale, mainstream release! I mean, come one. Along with Mr. Shark, he would be one of the easiest and cheapest Toy Story characters to produce. I have a 4" action figure of him, but it's so small that I don't even count it as a replica. Some fans fork out a few hundred bucks for the Japan exclusive Medicom vinyl Rocky figure, but even that isn't completely to scale (it comes closer than the other figures out there of this character, but it's still too small).


6.) MR. SPELL
Mr. Spell is another one of those secondary Toy Story characters who has become pretty iconic. There's even a giant one hanging from a "jump rope" at Hollywood Studios in the Pixar Place section of the park! Yet, once again, there has never been an official full scale release of this character. This is a toy that is fun, educational AND a Toy Story character (not to mention it has lights and sounds). If you ask me, that all sounds super marketable! I know Mr. Spell is loosely based on the Speak & Spell toy from the 80's, but this design is completely Pixar's own creation. It needs to be made.


5.) BO PEEP
There are several official versions of Bo Beep out there. I even have one of them (which is the best one right now in my opinion—the Thinkway Toys Bo Peep with sheep from 1995). Then how is she on this list you might ask? For me, I still don't feel like any of the Toy Story Bo Peep toys out there have really captured the actual character from the film. They all just just remind me of some kind of standard Barbie type doll. If you remember, Bo Peep and her sheep aren't technically toys at all; she's made of porcelain and is actually a part of Molly's lamp. I would love to see an actual porcelain (or at least a quality vinyl) version of her and her sheep with a working lamp—base and all! How cool would that be?


4.) SNAKE & ROBOT
OK, this might be cheating since these are two separate characters—but hey. I had to narrow it down to a Top 10 and, since Snake and Robot are always seen together in the film, I took the liberty to lump them under one. I have ALWAYS wanted these two and STILL hope that they will be made. Even if they're a limited release (how cool would a 2-pack be?) at a convention or whatnot, a release needs to happen. I can see Robot's lights and hear his signature sounds now! And as far as Snake, he literally would be the easiest toy to produce. Just make it happen people.


3.) TRIXIE 
That's right—Trixie, one of the main characters from Toy Story 3 (and star of Toy Story That Time Forgot as well as featured in all the Toy Story Toons) has never seen a full scale/replica release. A couple small scale action figures? Yes. But none that are even close to being in scale with the film. Currently I just have a Disney Parks plush version as a filler to at least have the character represented in my collection. I believe this release is inevitable, even if it takes a few more years.  


2.) WHEEZY
This one bothers me a lot. Here's another simple, easy to make toy (as easy as Mr. Shark or Snake would be) that would make a LOT of Toy Story fans happy; yet for some reason, he remains unproduced after 18 years! Yes, a rubber full scale Wheezy squeak toy was available for a brief time at the Disney Store overseas in 1999 (limited to the European and Japan markets). Apparently that same Wheezy was also available at select shows of Toy Story 2 "On Ice" (again, overseas). However, how many people actually have him out there? A handful? I know some fans who are lucky enough to have him (the ones who paid $100+ for him on eBay), but let's be real. You can barely even call that a release. If Disney Parks released a basic rubber Wheezy squeeze toy, that thing would FLY off the shelf. Why are they missing that great opportunity? Wheezy without a doubt needs to be made.


1.) STINKY PETE (THE PROSPECTOR) 
You've made it to my #1 Toy Story toy that needs to be made...That's right, it's none other than Stinky Pete the prospector! This one still baffles me; another main character who got completely snubbed. Are they afraid that he'll suffer the same fate as in the film and become a shelf warmer? That no one will want to buy him? Well I know that there are thousands of Toy Story fans out there who wouldn't hesitate getting him for a second if he was released. Why not make him a limited release if that's really the worry? If that's not the reason for him not being released, what is? So many questions. 

And yes, once again, I know there is a full scale version of Stinky Pete from the company Young Epoch, but that is yet another Japanese exclusive, is very limited and sells for upwards $600 or more. Let's please just make Stinky Pete widely available in the US for all us dedicated fans. How funny is it that the one toy with packaging seen in the film is the toy that never gets a real release?


HONORABLE MENTIONS: Lenny, Troikas, Roly Poly Clown, Stretch (the purple Sunnyside octopus), and Sid's mutant toys. 

That's it everyone! There we have my top 10 Toy Story toys that need to be made. With Toy Story 4 coming in 2019, let's just hope a Toy Story toys resurgence will bring about some of these characters. What do you think of my list? Do you agree? Who would you add or take away? I can't wait to hear all your thoughts in the comment section below.

Monsters Inc: METALFIGS Mike & Sulley (by Jada Toys)

monsters inc jada toys metalfigs mike sulley

New from Jada Toys, here we have a couple of figures from their METALFIGS collection (a line which seems to be growing in popularity as of late)...Mike and Sulley from Monsters Inc.! These characters are about 2"-2 1/2" tall and are made up of over 50% solid diecast metal.

I saw that these were being released not too long ago and had been keeping my eyes open for them over the last few weeks. I was super pumped when I stumbled upon them at Walmart this past weekend! I just absolutely love the designs of these figures and knew they would be irresistible. Retail price is $4.68 each.

On the back you'll notice a few other non-Pixar (though Disney nonetheless) characters in this line that are also available: Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Jack Skellington and Stitch.

monsters inc jada toys metalfigs mike sulley

Check them out a bit closer below— loose from the packaging and ready to scare! It's hard to tell from my photos, but each one has a fantastic sparkly/metallic paint job. What a cool touch! These are going to look perfect on display in my office and are great pieces overall for adult collectors.

As mentioned, I found these at Walmart...but I'm sure they're available elsewhere as well. Keep a look out at Target and Toy R Us as they might be showing up there too! If you want to order them online using Amazon, check out my direct links below.

I can't recommend these enough for any Monsters Inc. fan! They're cute, they're well made, have a solid weight to them and don't take up very much space. You really can't go wrong here.

monsters inc jada toys metalfigs mike sulley

 


FINAL NOTE: Here's a shot I took of the Jada Toys METALFIGS section at Walmart. 

 jada toys metalfigs

You can see here that there's also a "NANO METALFIGS" line, which now features a boxed set of several teeny tiny metal Pixar figures (about 1.5" tall). I didn't go for those ones, since I was shocked at the difference in quality when compared to the Mike and Sulley figures I reviewed above. The ones in this set (especially Sulley) look just so off to me. Their sculpts are awkward and the paint jobs are sloppy. It's weird to me that these are from the same company as the ones I purchased. Oh well—what do you think?

LOU: Pixar Studio Store Exclusive Pin

pixar studio store LOU pin

If you've been following along with me on social media (and/or if you've read my glowing soundtrack review), you may already know that I adore Pixar's latest short film, LOU (directed by Dave Mullins), which premiered this summer in front of the theatrical release of Cars 3.

To my dismay (though expected), there has been no sign of any LOU merchandise—or at least any that's available to the general public. However, thanks to my good friends over at PixarPost.com (who totally surprised me), I was able to obtain this amazing LOU limited edition pin! This is currently available only at the Pixar Studio Store in Emeryville, CA.

The overall design of the pin is adorable and completely captures the brilliantly designed title character of the film. The back of the pin has a standard authentic Disney pins Mickey Mouse clamp.

pixar studio store LOU pin
 
As I've mentioned countless times, I consider anything from the Pixar Studio Store to be the "holy grail" of Pixar collecting. This is such a rare treat! Perhaps one day I'll be able to live my dream and shop the store myself, but until then, I'm grateful for my friends in the community who think of me when they're able to visit.

If you're interested in snagging this for your Disney pin collection, there is one available on eBay as of right now—though it might cost you an arm and a leg. Be sure to check out all the current listings for this pin right HERE.

Something else that I'll be keeping a lookout for is this incredible LOU maquette, which will also be a Pixar Studio Store exclusive, set to arrive sometime later this year. Maybe we'll get a plush too? Time will tell! Let me know your thoughts on this or any upcoming LOU releases in the comments below.

Cars 3: Dr. Damage

cars 3 dr. damage

Straight from one of my favorite scenes in Cars 3, here we have the Mattel "Deluxe" size 1:55 scale diecast of Dr. Damage! For me, the most fun characters to collect so far in the Cars 3 line have been the demolition derby/crazy 8 race contenders. They're just so wacky and odd, which make for diecasts unlike any that have been released in the past! Plus they have some amazing detailing with all their "dirt" and "grime."

The character design for this one is just too funny and Mattel did a fantastic job translating it into a diecast toy. I mean, come on... "Dr. Damage"? "Rambulance"? That flat line graphic? I imagine all the concept artists had a blast working on that scene during the production of the film.

cars 3 dr. damage mattel diecast

Let's take a closer look at Dr. Damage out of the package! He really looks great. One thing to note is that he's not 100% diecast metal. The front "face part " (for lack of better wording) of him is, but the whole back portion of the ambulance, as well as the tires and exhaust pipes, is plastic. That's not necessarily a bad thing, unless perhaps you were going to purchase this with expectations that he was completely made of metal.

cars 3 dr. damage mattel diecast
cars 3 dr. damage mattel diecast

As of right now, this single carded release of Dr. Damage is the only way to get him. If you're any kind of Cars 3 diecast collector, this one is a must have for sure! At this point he may be hard to find in stores (since he started hitting shelves months ago), but it wouldn't hurt to check your local Walmart, Target or Toys R Us for availability. If you'd rather just snag him online, check out current eBay listings HERE or Amazon using the direct link below.

Happy hunting!
