Cars 2: Okuni

From Mattel, here is the brand new 2015 Okuni  from Cars 2! This character was originally only available in a Target exclusive 10-pack (called Tokyo Spy Mix-Up, seen HERE) a few years back, but has just been recently released as a single for the first time. She is #4/10 of the new "Tokyo Party" sub-series and is a 1:55 scale diescast.

As shown in the screen shot above, Okuni was seen in the film only for only a brief moment. She is one of the Japanese fan dancers near the entrance of the Tokyo WGP welcome party. Shigeko (the blue dancer), was also released earlier this year (see post HERE).

Since this car was only ever available in that 10-pack, I was never able to get my hands on it until now. This is a most welcome (and anticipated by me) addition to my Cars collection! Hopefully Tamiko (the pink one seen in the middle between Okuni and Shigeko, who was also only released in multi-pack years back) will also get a release this year as well; so look for those updates here in the near future.

Look for Okuni in stores now.
