Cars: Artie and Brian Fee Clamp 2-Pack

Now here's a release I got very late in the game last year...this Disney·Pixar Cars Artie and Brian Fee Clamp 2-pack! This set was available around last May, but it never showed up in my area. In the end I finally had to resort to Amazon (well, my mother in-law did, who got this for me for this past Christmas). As usual, these are 1:55 scale diecast vehicles from Mattel and are part of the 2016 "LA Speedway" sub-series (#10/11 and #11/11).

As shown in the screenshot above, both Artie and Brian are directors for the RSN Racing Network. They can be briefly seen [a couple of times] during the film's final climatic race at the Los Angeles Speedway.

Though I already have an Artie diecast (seen in my post from years ago HERE), the version I have has lenticular eyes. With that said, it was pretty easy justifying getting another one here with this set, since this version has standard "fixed" eyes (plus the coloring is a tad different, the windows are darker and the mold is now a unibody). Brian Fee Clamp, however, is a brand new never before released character.

Interestingly, Brian Fee is being released AGAIN this year as a 2017 "Deluxe" size single. That was a quick re-release.

Let's take a closer look at these guys...

Fun Fact: "Brian Fee Clamp" is named after Cars 3 director Brian Fee! Brian has been in the art department at Pixar since work began on the original Cars.
