Cars 3: Eric Braker & Spikey Fillups 2-Pack

cars Eric Braker & Spikey Fillups 2-Pack

Tonight I'm back with another quick Cars 3 Mattel 1:55 diecast review—this "movie moments" 2-pack featuring next-generation racers Eric Braker and Spikey Fillups! At the time of this release a couple summers back, these two were both brand new, never before released characters. That's rare for a 2-pack, as usually one is an old character/re-release. This set is part of the 2018 "Next-Gen Piston Cup Racers" sub-series.

As shown in the screen shot above, both these racers can be seen very briefly during the climatic Florida 500 race. From what I understand though, their names have been reversed on this packaging. The blue car is actually Spikey Fillups (no. 117) and is sponsored by Lil' Torquey Piston, replacing stock car Ralph Carlow. The green car is Eric Braker (no. 5), who races for team SynerG and replaces stock car Lane Locke. The card error was corrected later on (seen HERE).

Since then, Eric Braker (again, the green one) has been released as a single and this 2-pack has been released again recently in 2020 packaging (with the correct names). You can find them currently in-store at your nearest Target or Walmart if you looking to add these two to your Cars collection! If you'd rather just pick this set up online, you can find it on Amazon using the direct link below.

Have fun on the hunt and stay safe out there!
