Cars 3: "Fan Favorites" Team 95 Mater

As part of Mattel's Cars 3 Target exclusive "Fan Favorites" sub-line (released over the summer), here we have the 1:55 scale diecast of Team 95 Mater! This little secondary collection is separate from the main line and is made up of both canon and non-canon versions of some of our favorite characters (as usual, I collected only the "canon" characters—or in other words, the ones that actually appeared on screen in the film). Other than Mater here, this wave also features:
  • Team 95 and 51 Maddy McGear (Canon)
  • Dinoco Cruz Ramirez with tool cart (Canon)
  • Team 51 Ramone (Non-Canon
  • Team 95 Sarge (Non-Canon)
  • Team 95 and 51 Sheriff (Non-Canon)
Gotta love all Mater's hats, right? As shown in the screenshot above, Mater is seen wearing this oversized Piston Cup trophy hat at the end of Cars 3 during the climactic Florida 500 race. Yes, relative to Mater's size, you can tell that the hat is much bigger in the film. I think this should have been a deluxe size diecast release with the proper sized hat, but this off-scale version gets the point across just fine I suppose.

You can also find this "Fan Favorites" version of Mater in a Target exclusive 4-pack (seen HERE). Pick up this and any of the "Fan Favorites" collection at your local Target today! They're all still surprisingly pretty easy to find in stores, but I've also included a direct Amazon link below for your convenience.

Happy hunting!
