Cars 2: Vic Vanley
From Disney·Pixar's Cars 2, here we have Vic Vanley... yet another relatively new, never before released Mattel 1:55 scale diecast! This character hit shelves back in September (but only just started showing up in my area a few weeks back) and is part of the 2016 "Cruisin' Tokyo" sub-series (#4/9).
As shown in the screenshot above, sleepy Vic is briefly seen in the streets of Toyko checking in for the night at the Capsule Motel (during, what I call, the "You Might Think" arrival to Japan montage).
Though nothing too unique or special, Vic is another solid addition to my ever growing Cars collection. I do like the paint color, which also seems to have a little bit of a metallic sparkle.
Looking to pick this one up but can't find it in stores? No worries— here's a link to current eBay listings or be sure to check out Amazon using the direct link below. Happy hunting!
