Cars 3: River Scott

Cars 3 River Scott diecast review

Tonight I'm taking a look at another Cars 3 Mattel 1:55 scale diecast, a review I've been meaning to get up here for quite some time. It's River Scott, one of the Thomasville "legends" seen in the film! I've already documented Louise Nash and Junior Moon, so it's about time I complete the trio with River here (though I did review Heyday River Scott just a few days ago).

This diecast was released in late 2017 and could be found in several cases. The one I happen to have here comes with a "bonus collector card", but there was also a release with a mini poster/checklist, a release with both the card and the mini poster and, lastly, a standard version that didn't include anything extra.

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

Cars 3 River Scott diecast review

His official bio reads, "River Scott came from modest beginnings, but he always made the very best of what he had. With seven circuit wins from the early 1950s, his unique body style made him a trailblazer in the Piston Cup. He was scrappy and improvisational, and wore his dents proudly as symbols of what he had been through. He was Doc's racing contemporary and friend, and loves to tell tales of the good old days."

Fun Fact: His character is inspired by the late NASCAR driver Wendell Scott.

While this version of River Scott isn't available in stores currently as part of this year's lineup, you can find him easily online at either Amazon using the direct link below or eBay HERE. Have fun on the hunt if you're still looking to add this one to your Cars collection!

Let me know your thoughts down in the comments. Do you have a favorite retro Piston Cup racer?
