Cars 3: Roscoe (Deluxe Version)

Cars 3: Roscoe (Deluxe Version)

Happy Near Year everyone! It's pretty unreal that another year is over and that I'm entering my seventh year of blogging here. Where has the time gone??

Tonight I'm taking a quick look at yet another 1:55 scale Mattel Cars 3 diecast: Roscoe (2018 DELUXE version as part of the "Thunder Hollow" sub-series). Back when Roscoe was first released in 2017, he was produced as a normal size diecast on a standard card. At the time, it didn't even cross my mind that Mattel actually made a mistake releasing him in that size. Given his scale in the movie, his diecast should have been much bigger. Well it didn't take too long for Mattel to correct this error, as this Deluxe size Roscoe hit shelves in the late spring of 2018—only a year after the character's initial release. It's quite the upgrade.

As shown in the Cars 3 screenshot above, Roscoe is the host (also known as the "gatekeeper") of the Crazy 8 demolition derby at the Thunder Hollow Speedway.

Not only is this Deluxe version far more film-accurate in terms of scale (almost double the size of the original), but Mattel also improved his color and other small details as well. This one looks much more like the Roscoe we see on screen, so if you're trying to decide which version to get for your collection, this is the one.
