Cars 3: Morgan Martins

Hey everyone! Tonight I'm taking a look at another Mattel Cars 3 1:55 scale diecast...Morgan Martins! This character was released last summer as a "Super Chase" and is part of the "Deluxe" sized assortment. And if you're new to Cars collecting, cars designated/labeled Super Chase are just ultra rare releases—no more than 4,000 units are produced per Super Chase (they're also not included on the year's visual checklist, so they're lesser known). They're very, very hard to spot in stores. I've had to get most of mine online over the years.

This is an odd choice for a Super Chase; not that it isn't a cool vehicle (it looks great and it's definitely unique to get a new ambulance/rescue vehicle), but because Morgan didn't actually ever appear in movie. Maybe his part was cut from the film after Mattel got the designs? I feel like he would have originally been in McQueen's crash scene, but I'm not 100% sure where this character was set to appear (if ever).

Like usual with the bigger Mattel releases, the only diecast metal part to this toy is the front cab. Everything else is plastic (which I understand, but it's always a tad disappointing). Overall though, for what it is, it looks good!

If you're a diehard Cars collector like myself (with that completist mentality), this is a must have just because of the rarity of it. For you casual collectors, unless you're able to spot it in stores (which if that's the case, grab it!!), you can probably skip this one (especially since he's not even in the film).

I picked this one up on eBay for around $13 (which is not bad at all for a Super Chase) and I'll include a link below. You can also check eBay HERE using this direct link.

Happy hunting! Let me know your thoughts or any question you might have in the comments. Have you spotted Morgan in stores?
