Cars 2: Interview Francesco

As a Disney/Pixar Cars collector, you know that there is no shortage of supply out there when it comes to Mattel's 1:55 scale Francesco Bernoulli diecasts. Since 2011 with the release of Cars 2, you really can't go to a store without still seeing about 15 of them- you know what I'm talking about! Well, we have yet another one that has just been released, but this time it's a somewhat new version of the character! It's not much different, but hey, it was different enough for me to pick up.

Here we have the newly released "Interview Francesco" based on the scene in the film when Francesco was shown as a guest on the "Mel Dorado Show." The main, yet subtle, difference with this version compared to the standard release is the facial expression; this one appears to be angry and yelling just as he did during this scene when Mcqueen insults him by calling him "fragile" (screen shot from that moment above).

This release is #9/9 of the 2014 "Mel Dorado Show" sub-series. He just came out within the last month and I was able to find him just a couple days ago. If you're looking to find this one for your collection, head to your local store for a good chance at finding him. Otherwise, you can pretty easily just find him online on Amazon or eBay. Good luck on the hunt as you fellow collectors finish up your 2014 Cars collection!
