Cars: Jerry Recycled Batteries

Back in the spring of 2017 (right before Cars 3 products hit), Mattel released five 1:55 scale diecast "Deluxe" size semi truck characters from the original Cars—all Toys R Us exclusives under the "Radiator Springs Classic" banner: Ben Crankleshaft, Gil, Paul Valdez, Chet Boxkaar and, my blog post tonight, Jerry Recycled Batteries! This week I'll be taking a long overdue closer look at each one of them.

As shown in the screenshot above, Jerry appeared in the film when McQueen follows him off the highway thinking he's Mack. Jerry says "Mack? I ain't no Mack! I'm a Peterbilt, for dang sake! Turn on your lights, you moron!"

Jerry was also released as a full hauler over a decade ago (2009 Race O Rama), but I missed out on that one when it was originally available and now prices for it have skyrocketed. This release was the next best thing! Did you pick this one up or any of the semis that hit Toy R Us a couple years back? Let me know your thoughts and look for more right here soon.
