Cars 3: Dud Throttleman (Mood Springs)

For tonight's post, I'm diving right back into my Cars 3 Mattel 1:55 scale diecast collection to document Dud Throttleman here! Dud, better known by his sponsor Mood Springs, supersedes Chuck Armstrong (who was the racer for this sponsor in the original Cars with the same number, No. 33). This diecast was released clear back in late May/early June in Mattel's second wave (case B) of Cars 3 singles.

This racer can be seen during the film's opening race montage sequence, but is frustratingly hard to spot (like most of them). He literally goes by in a blur (as shown in the screen shot above).

Like all the Piston Cup stock car characters, this is not the most exciting car to review (especially since this one is so similar to the original Cars Mood Springs racer). They round out the collection nicely though and are must haves for Cars diecast completists like me!

Despite being released over six months ago, Dud Throttleman is still very easy to find (at least in my area on the east coast). Check your local Target, Toys R Us or Walmart if you're still trying to add this one to your collection! If not, you can always purchase him using the direct link to Amazon below for a great price.

Happy hunting!
