Cars 2: Ruka

From Cars 2, here we have the Mattel 1:55 scale diecast release of Ruka! Who's Ruka you say? Good question. As shown in the screen shot above, Ruka can be seen in the Tokyo airport as an airpot costumer service/ticket agent. However, there are four or five of these airline employees behind desks throughout the airport sequence that look exactly the same, so it's hard to know exactly which one is Ruka!

She was released last year as a "Chase" edition car. That means she had a much more limited release compared to other characters. Ruka was part of the 2013 "Airport Adventure" sub-line (number 7/7).

This is a fun release that I'm glad to have in my collection. She definitely has a unique look that is much different than any other characters released thus far in Mattel's line of Cars. Now, if only we could get the cancelled "Inflight Mater" and flight attendant 3-pack (seen here)! I have hopes those characters will still be released in the near future.

Naturally, Ruka has long since come and gone and is not available in stores currently. Of course, if you're still trying to track this one down, you can always pick her up on Amazon or eBay using the link below:
