Cars: Chuck Armstrong (Mood Springs)

From Disney·Pixar Cars, here is the newly re-released Mattel 1:55 scale diecast of Chuck Armstrong, better known by his sponsor Mood Springs (No. 33)! This character has been released a couple other times over the last 10 years, but this particular single pack release is from this year's 2016 "Piston Cup" sub series (#9/14). I've been waiting for this one to come back for a long time!

As shown in the screenshot above, Mood Springs is briefly seen in the film's opening Motor Speedway of the South (Dinoco 400) race. He is one of the 36 race cars competing for the Piston Cup.

I'm so happy to finally have this one as part of my collection. Now if they'll only re-release the ultra rare (like we're talking eBay prices well over $100), highly sought after "Race Damaged Mood Springs" (seen HERE)! Here's to hoping.

You can find Chuck here in stores now (I just found him tonight at Target), or be sure to purchase him online soon. This one hasn't quite hit eBay or Amazon yet, but I'll update the post here with links when he does. Best of luck on the hunt!
