Cars 2: Alex Vandel

From Mattel's original Cars 2 line, here we have #45, Alex Vandel! This is a 1:55 scale diecast and a "Chase" edition car (meaning a limited quantity were made).

As shown in the screen shot above, Alex was seen in the Tokyo airport going through security. This was a hilarious and clever gag in the film, as you may notice that Alex does not have any tires on (they are on the x-ray conveyer belt); a reference to us having to take our shoes off before going through airport security in real-life.

Trivia: This character is named after Pixar employee, Alex Mandel.

This is a cool looking character that I'd definitely try hunting down for your collection (if you haven't already). After all, it's the only Mattel Cars release that has not included tires, which makes this one unique. You can find Alex on Amazon or eBay using the link below:
