Cars 3: Superfly ("Demo Derby")

cars 3 demo derby superfly 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. This past week I posted on Bill, Jambalaya Chimichanga, Airborne and Liability...tonight we're moving on to "Superfly"! This will be last one I post since I realized I didn't end up buying the Lightning McQueen as Chester Wipplefilter. I remember now that I figured he was essentially the same as the standard release and without any unique accessories, so I didn't need him.

As shown in the screen shot above, Superfly (racing no. 72) can be seen briefly during the Thunder Hollow Demolition Derby Crazy 8 race. He's the one that drives into some tires and then flies through the air saying "WOO-HOO-HOO! I'M FLYING! NO, I'M NOT FLY--[hits the ground]". As always with these racers, he has such a fun, colorful and unique character design! This diecast comes with two stacks of tires to help recreate the scene (the same tires that came with Jambalaya).

So far, this is the first and only release of Superfly. 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! Thanks for following along as I've reviewed all these "Demo Derby" cars. :)
