Cars: Nicky B. & Flo 2-Pack

Cars diecast Nicky B. & Flo 2-Pack review

From the original Cars, here we have the brand new Mattel 1:55 scale diecast 2-pack of Nicky B. and Flo! This set started hitting shelves just last month and can still be found pretty easily at you nearest Target or Walmart. It is part of the 2020 "Radiator Springs" sub-series. Nicky B. is an all-new diecast (this is the first ever release of this character), while Flo of course has been released countless times since 2006 (this isn't an exclusive variant). Nicky was cancelled back in 2017, so it's cool to see him finally on store shelves after all these years.

As shown in the screen shot above, both Flo and Nicky can be seen at the V8 Cafe during the touching "Our Town" flashback sequence (one of my favorite scenes in the whole Cars franchise).

Yet again, my only complaint with this set is that Mattel included Flo with Nicky B., instead of a another new character from that same flashback scene. It's not a huge deal, but it's always just a little annoying when you have to get a previously released character (especially one as common as Flo) to get a new character. Just my two cents.

If you'd like to add this 2-pack to your collection, but can't find it at the store, no worries! You can snag it on eBay HERE or Amazon using the direct link below.

Good luck on the hunt!
