Cars 2: Father Burke, Cardinal Antonio & Cardinal Angelo 3-Pack

Here is a new Pixar Cars 2 2014 1:55 scale diecast release from Mattel...Father Burke with included Cardinal Antonio and Cardinal Angelo pitties! This set is part of the "Race Fans" sub-line.

These characters (as seen in the screen shot above) can be seen in the film right at the beginning of the Porto Corsa, Italy race during the World Grand Prix (directly next to the Pope and Popemobile).

Since there are two "Father" characters next to each other in the screen shot that look exactly the same, I'm not exactly sure which one is Father Burke. The one on the left or right?

The same goes for the Cardinal pitties...there are three in the scene, yet only two are included here in this set. Which one is which? If any of you super sleuths have idea, definitely let me know!

These are some really fun designs that I'm glad made it into diecast form. It's hilarious to me, the idea of making cars characters based on iconic religious titles/people.

These are available in stores now and can be found at Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, etc.. however, I wasn't able to find them myself in my area. Again, I have to give thanks to my good friends T.J. and Julie from for finding this great set and hooking me up with it! They're fantastic friends, always knowing which cars I'm still looking for.

If you're having trouble finding this 3-pack as I did, you can pick it up online on Amazon or eBay using the link below:
