Cars 3: Jambalaya Chimichanga ("Demo Derby")

Cars 3 Jambalaya Chimichanga diecast review

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. Yesterday I posted on Bill and now we're moving onto Jambalaya Chimichanga (what a name, right?)! I'll be posting on the rest over the next few days.

As shown in the screen shot above, Jambalaya (racing no. 27) can be seen during the Demolition Derby Crazy 8 race AND later on in the film when the Thunder Hollow cars are seen at a bar watching McQueen's final race on TV. Such a fun, colorful and unique character design! This diecast comes with two stacks of tires to help recreate the scene.

At the time of this release, this was the only way to get this character. She has since been released as a single (without rubber tires) on the 2020 cardback and can be found in-store (Walmart or Target) right now! If you'd rather just pick up this diecast online, you can check out current eBay listings or Amazon using the direct links below.

Let me know your thoughts down in the comments! Do you have a favorite demo derby racer?
