Cars: Chick Hicks

From Mattel, here is their 1:55 scale diecast release of Chick Hicks (also known by race fans as "the Runner-Up") from the original Cars! Being one of the film's featured characters and Lightning's Mcqueen main antagonist, Chick Hicks has been around since the diecast line began back in 2006. Since then, he has been released too many times to count (in both single and multi-packs).

The one I have loose here, as you may notice, is the "lenticular" (moving eyes) version. I also have a fixed eyes release (seen HERE in the "Three Way Tie Gift Pack") as well as a Dinoco version (seen HERE).

His latest release was just last year, so you may even be able to find him in stores still at this point. If not, he's scheduled for yet another release later this year. If you're still trying to add Chick to your Cars collection, don't worry- he'll be around again soon..

Did you know? Chick's racing number is 86- the year that Pixar was officially established and the year that their short film, Luxo Jr., was released!
