Cars 3: Xanadu Bumpers

Cars 3 Xanadu Bumpers

Welcome back everyone! Tonight I'll be briefly documenting another new Cars 3 Mattel 1:55 scale diecast—an old school Volkswagen Beetle by the name of Xanadu Bumpers. She is part of the 2019 "The Cotter Pin" sub-series.

Now onto her appearance in the film. As shown in the screenshot above, Xanadu can be spotted very briefly (and only from the back) during the Cotter Pin Bar scene. She is watching the band perform just as Lightning and Smokey roll in.

With such a unique name such as "Xanadu", I figured this had to be a reference to some Pixar employee. I did some digging and sure enough that's the case! This character appears to be named after Xanadu Bruggers, who was employed at Pixar in various roles from 2014-2019. 

You can find Xanadu on shelves right now, so I'd suggest checking your nearest Target or Walmart for availability. If you'd rather just snag her online, I've provided the Amazon link below as usual. Happy hunting!
