Cars 2: Gearett Taylor

gearett taylor

Here we have yet another new Mattel Cars 2 diecast character...Gearett Taylor! He is part of this year's 2015 "Palace Chaos" sub-line (#7/7) and is Mattel's signature 1:55 scale.

In the film, Gearett is one of the several Range Rover security officers seen protecting the Queen from Miles Axlerod's "bomb." However, since there are many of these body guards that look completely identical during the film's London scenes, it's hard to know exactly which one is actually Gearett. The screenshot above is my best bet.

Gearett here almost 100% identical to another Range Rover car released in 2013 (Mike Lorengine, see post HERE). The only slight differences are his facial expression (mouth and eyes are different), no weapon (Mike has a gun attached to his side; this one does not) and a couple other very minor details. The license plate number is the same.

Note: for a great comparison of the two, head over to Take5aDay HERE to check out their post on the differences.

Even though I do have one just like this, it was different enough that I couldn't help but snag it (being the "completist" I am). If anything, it will work great for scene/diorama building!

You can find Gearett in stores now (I just found him at my local Target). If you'd rather snag him online, be sure to check out current eBay listings HERE or visit Amazon using the direct link below. Happy hunting!
