Cars: Wilmar Flattz
From the original Cars, here we have the newly released Mattel 1:55 diecast of Wilmar Flattz! This is one of the very first 2017 cars released thus far and is part of this year's "Race Fans" sub-series (#7/14). Though Wilmar has been available in the past (right around the 2009/2010 time frame) this is the first release of this character featuring fixed, non-lenticular eyes.
As shown in the screen shot above, Wilmar is one of Mcqueen's fans seen in in the crowds during the film's opening race (specifically right after Lightning blows a tire). This diecast captures her worried expression accurately!
I found this one at Target a couple weeks back, so you might want to check your local store for availability. If you're not having any luck, you might want to check out current eBay listings or Amazon using the direct link below. Best of luck my fellow Cars fans!
Oh and random note- just 139 days left until Cars 3!
