Cars 2: Alexis Wheelson

Tonight I'm taking it easy with a simple post since I've gotten hit with yet another really bad cold...and when I want to keep it simple on here, I post a car! You know how it goes.

Here we have another Cars 2 character from last year that I got late in the game—Alexis Wheelson! She has been showing up at stores (I found mine at Target) since around mid December and can still be found pretty easily. Alexis is a deluxe sized Mattel 1:55 scale diecast vehicle and is #6/6 of the 2016 "Paris Parts Market" sub-series.

As shown in the screenshot above, Alexis Wheelson is briefly seen in the streets of Paris when Mater and Finn arrive at the car parts black market (right next to Justin Partson); a funny and clever little sequence! Characters like this are great for scene building.

I love getting unique cars like this. There definitely isn't any other like it in my collection. As usual, Mattel did an awesome job with the sculpt (especially with all those tires/rims in the back) and paint detailing—just check it out for yourself!

Be on the lookout for this one in stores now or check eBay or Amazon for their current listings. Best of luck out there! Be sure to let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
