Cars 2: Finn McMissile with Breather
From Cars 2, here we have this year's Mattel 1:55 scale diecast release of Finn McMissile with Breather! I had been looking out for this for awhile and I finally found it just a couple days ago (at my local grocery store of all places...totally random). This deluxe size release is part of the 2016 "Oil Rig Getaway" sub-series (#6/8).
As shown in the screenshot above, Finn is seen this way near the beginning of the film after the big oil rig escape sequence. Finn "plays dead" and makes his underwater getaway by using his hidden submarine gear.
This is a really neat, well made, detailed diecast. If it looks familiar to you, that's because a similar release, Submarine Finn McMissile (seen HERE), was available back in 2011 (which was basically the same thing, minus the breather gadget).
This has been showing up sporadically in the US over the past few months (though it seems to just be getting to my area now). Your best bet is to check your local Target, Toys R Us or Walmart if you're looking to track this one down or visit eBay HERE or Amazon using the direct link below.
Best of luck on the hunt!
