Cars 3: Primer Lightning McQueen (Radiator Springs Classic)

cars 3 primer lightning mcqueen

Available now only at Toys R Us, tonight I'm taking a look at the brand new Mattel Cars 3 Primer Lightning McQueen 1:55 diecast—as part of the ongoing "Radiator Springs Classic" collection! This has just been released in a wave with Cars 3 Intro Ramone, Flo, Fillmore and Sally with Tattoo, which I'll be showing off here soon as well.

I've been waiting for this release for a while. Though a version of "Primer Lightning McQueen" was already available last summer in a "Return to Radiator Springs 10-Pack" (seen HERE), I never got that one since the pack was pricey and featured no other new characters I needed. This release isn't just a mere re-issue though; it's actually quite different from the multi-pack one! Main differences below:

Return to Radiator Springs 10-Pack Primer McQueen:
  • Happy expression
  • Shiny finish
  • Video phone included (exclusive)
This Radiator Springs Classic Single Primer McQueen:
  • Sad expression
  • Matte finish (which I like better and feel is more accurate)
  • No video phone included

As shown in the screen shot above, McQueen is seen this way while in repair after his life-altering crash in the first act of the film. This diecast looks seriously great and really captures the scene when McQueen pours over old racing footage of Doc Hudson (one of my favorite moments). Really nice detailing!
