Cars 3: Louise Nash

Hey everyone! So yesterday I took a little break after Wednesday's day long project of reviewing the Coco Blu-Ray (which you can read HERE if you missed it). I wanted to let the blog breathe a little and allow people to take the time to read that before I continued on with new posts. Today I'm back with another Mattel Cars 3 1:55 diecast review!  

Here we we have Louise Nash, one of the Thomasville "legends" seen in the film! She was released in the fourth quarter of last year in several cases. She was in case L (the original release with no bonus items), case M (with a both bonus collector card AND mini poster), case T (with only a bonus collector card), and this release here (with only the mini poster—not sure which case it's from). Though she was represented in plenty of cases, I only just found her at my local Walmart this week! I didn't care which release it was, I was thrilled to finally add this character to my collection. It's about time!

I've been waiting for the "legends" racers to hit my area for months now. I feel like my stores are always the last to get any new cases, which can be frustrating. The good news is, along with Louise here, I was also also able to find Junior Moon (which I'll review soon)! Now I just need River Scott.

As far as the diecast itself goes, everything about it looks great! Nice details, good looking sculpt, perfect paint app and no complaints from me.

FUN FACT: Nash's character is inspired by real life NASCAR driver Louise Smith (AKA "the first lady of racing"). In Smith's first race (at the Daytona Beach Road Course in 1949), she drove a 1950 Nash Ambassador—the same model used for Nash's look in Cars 3 and the inspiration for the character's name. Oh and yes, her real life racing number was also 94! Pretty cool stuff.

If you're still looking to add Louise Nash to your Disney·Pixar Cars collection, hope isn't lost! If I can still find her in my area, there's a possibility you can too. Definitely check your local Walmart and Target stores for availability or you can order her online using the direct Amazon link below.

Happy hunting!
