Cars 3: Airborne ("Demo Derby")

Cars 3 Airborne ("Demo Derby") diecast

Back in the summer of 2017, Mattel introduced a little side series in their Cars 3 1:55 scale diecast collection called "Demo Derby". This series was a Walmart exclusive and featured six unique demolition derby cars with "synthetic rubber tires"; each packaged on oversized cards and with a demolition derby inspired accessory. On Wednesday I posted on Bill and yesterday I posted on Jambalaya Chimichanga—tonight we're moving on to Airborne! I'll be posting on the rest over the next few days.

As shown in the screen shot above, Airborne (racing no. 90) can be seen very briefly during the Thunder Hollow Demolition Derby Crazy 8 race (unfortunately the clearest moment I could find was him face down in the mud). Once again, such a fun, colorful and unique character design! This diecast comes with a break apart "Wild Bill's Racing Cones" sign to help recreate the iconic scene.

So far, this is the first and only release of Airbone. You won't find him in stores at this point, but it's possible he could get a re-release as a regular single in the near future. You can also check out current eBay listings HERE or Amazon using the link below if you interested in adding this one to your collection.

Happy hunting!
