Cars: Sally with Tattoo (2018 Radiator Springs Classic)

Continuing on with the new wave of 2018 "Radiator Springs Classic" Cars 3 Toys R Us exclusive singles, tonight I'm taking a look at the brand new Sally with Tattoo! Though this is labeled "Cars 3" on the cardback, this version of Sally is most definitely based on her memorable "little pinstriping tattoo" moment from the original film (screen shot above). As usual, this is a 1:55 scale diecast from Mattel.

If you're thinking, "wait, wasn't Sally with Tatoo already released back in 2014?", you would be correct (see my original post HERE). That was the first and only time a tattoo version of Sally was ever released—until now. However, once again with this wave, this isn't just a mere re-release. This is literally a brand new version with:
  • A new expression (both eyes and mouth)
  • A more screen accurate paint job (lighter shade of blue)
  • FINALLY more realistic looking headlights (instead of the plain grey plastic)
  • FINALLY the screen accurate black outline around the windshield (never added until now)
This version 100% wins for being the better of the two! For me, there were enough differences and improvements for me to justify getting this (even though I probably have more than enough Sally diecasts).

Check her out in more detail in my loose pics below. Looks so good! Like always with the Sally diecasts, I love her subtle glittery paint (it's hard to see in the photos, but look closely).

Whether you have the original Sally with Tattoo already OR you're needing this version of the character for the first time, I recommend picking this one up if you see it! It's a perfectly executed diecast. Be sure to check your local Toys R Us ASAP for availability!
