Cars: Circus Cab (Super Chase)

Here we have another "super" exciting new addition to my collection...the circus cab from the original Cars end credits sequence! One of the reasons this is such a cool car is because he's a "Super Chase" (Deluxe size), which basically just means he's ultra rare (no more than 4,000 units are produced). Super Chase cars are extremely difficult to spot in stores, so I'm thrilled to have this! I was able to find just one on the shelf at my local Toys R Us store a couple nights ago.

Per usual, this is a 1:55 scale diecast from Mattel and was just released a month or two back.

One of the funniest and most creative scenes in Cars is during the end credits when Mack is parked at the Radiator Springs Drive-In Theater. There we see many of our favorite Pixar characters in car form such as Buzz, Woody, Hamm, Mike, Sulley, the Yeti, PT Flea, Flik and the "circus cars" (as seen in the screen shot  above). The scene is hilarious because it pokes fun at how actor John Ratzenberger has had a cameo in every single Pixar film. The scene can be watched here. Never gets old!

There have been five "circus car" super chase releases this year: this Circus Cab, the Circus Sedan, the Circus Pickup and the Circus Van (which I was also able to snag, see post HERE) and the Circus Forklift & Circus GT 2-Pack.  

This is such an awesome and unique car and I'm so glad it's finally released. It's too bad it's so hard to find. If you're having trouble tracking this one down in stores as well, eBay or Amazon might be your best bet.

Good luck on the hunt!
