Cars: Darla Vanderson

Cars Darla Vanderson

My ever growing (and never ending) Disney·Pixar Cars collection continues today with another brand new 1:55 scale diecast release from Mattel...Darla Vanderson! She is part of the 2016 "LA Speedway" sub-series (#7/11).

As shown in the screenshot above, Darla is another obscure race fan (specifically a fan of Strip "The King" Weathers) briefly seen at the start of the big Los Angeles tiebreaker Piston Cup race. How Mattel decides which cars to produce out of the thousands in the stands is beyond me, but hey, I'll take her!

FUN FACT: "Darla Vanderson" is another example of a car who's name was "carified"/modeled after a Pixar employee's. She is named after Pixar producer Darla Anderson (A Bug's Life, Monsters Inc., Cars, Toy Story 3, etc...).

I found this one at my local Target just this past week, so be sure to check yours if you're on the hunt! Best of luck out there to all my fellow Disney·Pixar Cars collectors.
