Cars 3: Bob Cutlass

Tonight I'm going to briefly document another Cars 3 Mattel 1:55 scale diecast released earlier this year...Bob Cutlass (part of the 2019 "Florida 500" sub-series)! As shown in the screen shot above, Bob Cutlass is a Piston Cup announcer for RSN (Racing Sports Network) seen alongside Darrell Cartrip. The character originally appeared in the first Cars film, but then was absent from Cars 2 for whatever reason. It was fun to see him back for Cars 3, seen several times throughout the film (mainly during the races at the beginning and end of the film).

The original diecast of Bob, based on his appearance in the first film, was released back in 2007 and then many times since (I got mine in a 10-pack later on, but he was also available in single packs and other multi-packs over the years). This here is the first ever release of Bob as he appears in Cars 3 and, as you can tell, he looks just a little different. He now sports the RSN logo on both sides and Mattel gave him a much lighter paint job (which honestly looks more blue than gray/silver).

FUN FACT: Bob is based on the real life racing announcer, Bob Costas.

If you're still looking for this diecast for your collection, you can still sometimes spot him at either Target or Walmart. I've also included an Amazon link below (as usual) for your convenience. Happy hunting! Let me know your thoughts down below.
