Cars 2: Pope Pinion IV

From Cars 2, here we have the Mattel 1:55 scale diecast of Pope Pinion IV! This character was released in late 2011 and is number eight in this line's "Deluxe" over-sized assortment.

In the film, The Pope is briefly seen in Italy at the Porto Corsa World Grand Prix race; he is transported and protected by the Popemobile. He is modeled after, of course, the real life Pope of the Catholic church (but makes no reference to any particular Pope. The name Pinion IV is completely fictitious).

You can find Pope Pinion IV on Amazon or eBay (for pretty decent prices) if you're still looking to add this one to your collection...and look for my write up on the Popemobile as well- right here soon!
