Cars: Michael Sparkber
Mattel doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon with the Disney·Pixar Cars releases...and I can't believe we have Cars 3 next year which will bring hundreds of new characters! Just when I thought I was catching up.
Today we have another never before released car from the original film...Michael Sparkber! As usual, this is a 1:55 scale diecast and is part of the 2016 "Rust-eze Racing" sub-series (#6/12). As shown in the screenshot above, Michael is a rusty car briefly seen in the Rust-eze sponsor tent after the film's opening Dinoco 400 race.
This is another nice scene builder car from Mattel with some really good detail. I wonder if they're eventually going to make every rusty car under the tent? You can find this one in stores now (I found mine a few weeks back at Target). Best of luck to all my fellow Cars collectors! Be sure to share your finds with me in the comments below.
