Cars 2: Combat Ship

 Welcome to today's post! Today we have the Disney Store exclusive Cars 2 Combat Ship! This is such a cool item for fans of Pixar's Cars series. I don't typically collect the 1:43 scale Disney Store cars (in fact I don't have any and sold the three that came with this ship; hydrofoil Finn, welding torch Acer and welding torch Pacer ). I've only ever focused on collecting Mattel's 1:55 scale line but this was too awesome an item to pass up! Mattel never made a Combat Ship in scale with their diecasts (they did have one for their action agents though but I found that too small) so this was my chance to get this character! It works great with Mattel's cars and I feel it may be even more to scale.

It's big, it has lights, sounds, pop out weapons, rolling wheels and even works as a carrying case! This was originally released in 2011 (I missed it then-it also had different cars included) but had a brief re-release in 2012! It's pretty rare now unfortunately, but if you're willing to fork out $100-$200, there's a few on eBay right now. Get them while you have the chance! Sometimes they take a while to show up online. You won't want to miss this great addition to your Cars collection!

Open it up to store as many cars as you can fit in the two levels!
