Mater and the Ghostlight: Ghostlight Ramone

Based on his appearance in the Disney·Pixar Cars short film Mater and the Ghostlight (which was released in 2006 as a DVD bonus feature), here we have the latest Mattel 1:55 scale diecast re-release of "Ghostlight Ramone." While there are a heck of a lot of versions of Ramone out there, this is actually the only time we see him with a blue paint job. That makes this version automatically pretty awesome!

This is the fourth time this particular Ramone has been released. He was first available as a Walmart exclusive in 2007, then as part of the "World of Cars" series in 2008, and then in the "Race O Rama" series in 2009; so it's been eight years since he was last available! I'm happy for this re-release, since I missed getting him in years past.

Ghostlight Ramone here is one of the very first 2017 mainline singles to be released. In fact, he started hitting stores before the new year even hit (I found him at Walmart right around Christmas). He's #3/19 of this year's "Radiator Springs" sub-series.

Now I just need the rare 2009 Mater with "glow in the dark lamp" (AKA Ghostlight) to go along with this Ramone. I'm sure you can expect an update with that here soon enough though (knowing me).

You can find this Ghostlight Ramone in stores now or on eBay HERE. I've also included a direct link to Amazon below. Best of luck to all my fellow Cars collectors out there!
