Cars 2: Lubewig

 From Mattel, here we have Lubewig, a new 1:55 scale vehicle as seen in Cars 2. He is part of the 2014 "Paris Tour" sub-line (number 4/7).

As shown in the screenshot above, he can be seen with his wife Geartrude (who was also released this year, seen HERE), posing for a flattering painting done of them during the "Paris arrival montage."

This is the very first time this character has been released as a diecast. It's really a breath of fresh air to have the release of a new character amongst all of the re-packs and re-releases this year so far! This is a fun diecast with a unique look (love the luggage rack and goofy smile). If you're any kind of Cars/Cars 2 collector, I'd definitely try to track this one down.

Lubewig was released a couple of months ago, but you may be able to still find him at your local store if you're lucky. I for one never actually found him in store as he ended up being super rare here in my area. A big thanks to my good friends T.J. and Julie over at who were able to help me out here by picking one up for me!

If you'd rather just pick him up online, you can snag him on Amazon for a pretty decent price or eBay using the link below:
