Cars: "Superfan" Mia & Tia

From Mattel, here we have the brand new Cars release of "Superfan" Mia and "Superfan" Tia! At first glance, one might think that these are just re-releases of the previously released Mia and Tia sculpts. There isn't a ton of difference, but these are in fact new. Their facial expressions are both different from the original release of these characters (they're both making a "melty" "I'm in love" teenage girl fan face here...that's the best I can describe it, but you know what I'm talking about).

These are 1:55 scale diecasts and have just been released in stores as part of the 2015 "Race Fans" sub-series (#7/9 and #8/9).

One thing I can think of that would have made these sculpts even better (and feel even newer) is if they had open "flashing" headlights as seen in the screenshot above. That would have been a funny detail that may have made this 2-pack stand out even more for collectors.

Be sure to keep a lookout for this set in stores now!
