Cars: Haul Inngas (Retread)

First of all tonight, I wanted to wish the original Cars a happy 10th anniversary! The film premiered in US theaters on June 9th, 2006 and was directed by none other than the great John Lasseter. For my full thoughts on Cars and the anniversary, check out a previous post I did HERE.

Anyway, onto today's write-up. I thought a car would be most appropriate on this special day in Pixar history...

From Disney·Pixar Cars, here is the newly re-released Mattel 1:55 scale diecast of Haul Inngas, better known by his sponsor Retread (No. 79)! 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 (#7/14). I've been waiting for this one to come back for a long time, so I'm happy he's finally hitting store shelves once again. I'm that much closer to finally having all the Piston Cup racers.

As shown in the screenshot above, Retread is briefly seen speeding by the camera 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. He literally goes by in a blur- so don't blink or you'll miss him.

You can find this one in stores now (I just found him at Target yesterday), or be sure to snag him online by visiting eBay HERE using this direct link or Amazon using the link below. Best of luck on the hunt!
