Cars 2: Towga Gremlin
Today I'm taking a closer look at Towga Gremlin from Cars 2...yet another 1:55 scale diecast from Mattel! This was one of the last ones I needed from last year (release was around September) and I finally just acquired it. Woo-hoo! He is part of the 2016 "Oil Rig Gettaway" sub-series (#5/8).
As shown in the screen shot above, Towga is one of the Lemons seen trying to kill Finn McMissile at the beginning of the film (right next to Jerome Ramped and Stefan Gremsky). He actually sports the same awesome blow torch and goggles getup as Stefan, who is ultimately pretty much the same diecast sculpt (just a different color scheme).
As an added detail, Towga's goggles lift up! Cool little touch.
This is another awesome looking "Lemon" diecast for scene building. I really like his brown and orange colors, which is different from all the other Lemons released thus far. The rust, scrapes and dirt details here are top notch once again. Nicely done.
If you still need to find this one for your collection, be sure to check out eBay HERE or Amazon using the direct link below. Happy hunting to all my fellow Cars collectors!
