Cars: Sally (2018 Movie Accurate Version)

Cars Sally (2018 Movie Accurate Version) diecast

Disney·Pixar "Cars Week" may be over, but my Mattel 1:55 scale diecast collection continues! I know this isn't a very exciting post, but I had to document this one here regardless. Tonight I'm taking a look at the 2018 version of Sally, which is Mattel's most movie accurate version yet (outside of the precision series)! There have been a lot of Sally diecast releases since 2006, but this is for sure the best one as it fixes several issues that were present for over a decade.

Again to be clear, this isn't just a mere re-release. This is literally a brand new version of Sally with:
  • A new expression (both eyes and mouth)
  • A more screen accurate paint job (lighter shade of blue)
  • FINALLY more realistic looking headlights (instead of the plain grey plastic)
  • FINALLY the screen accurate black outline around the windshield (never added until now)
For me, there were enough differences and improvements made with this new sculpt for me to justify getting it (even though I probably have more than enough Sally diecasts). These same improvements were made to the 2018 version of Sally with Tattoo as well (seen HERE).

This version of Sally also comes with a fun little Cozy Cone Motel "Bonus Collector Card" accessory.

Unfortunately you won't find this one on store shelves at this point, but if you're still looking to add this edition of Sally to your Cars collection, your best bet is checking out current eBay listings HERE.

Happy hunting!
