Cars 3: Kris Revstopski (White Flag Version)

For tonight's Cars Mattel 1:55 scale diecast review, I'm taking a quick look at a new version of a Cars 3 character that was previously released...Kris Revstopski, this time with a white flag! The original version of Kris had a checkered flag and was available back in late 2017 (full review HERE) and then again in 2018 as featured in THIS 2-Pack. She was then released with a green flag in late 2019/early 2020 (seen HERE). Now we have this new white flag version, which is just hitting stores now as part of this year's new "Copper Canyon Speedway" sub-series. I was able to find this one at Walmart just a few days back.

As shown in the screenshot above, Kris is a flag waver for the Piston Cup racing series. She can be spotted at just about every race seen in the film, but the moment I chose to feature matches with the series she was released in—her at the Copper Canyon Speedway! This is the final race of the film's opening montage where McQueen first meets Jackson Storm. FYI: in racing, the white flag means "last lap".

Kris's official bio reads: Being a Piston Cup flag car like Kris Revstopski is hard work. Many fans of racing don't realize the rigorous training and testing a vehicle needs to go through in order to prove they are worthy of holding that checkered flag. When a race begins or ends, it's all eyes on Kris Revstopski.

I'd like to make a note that this isn't a straight repack of the original Kris diecast. This is actually the new (and more movie accurate) sculpt that was also used for the green flag version! The main difference is that her truck bed is now sealed off, rather than open. She's also a little smaller (and thinner) and has a different facial expression. Lastly, this one's flag is permanently attached, while the first version's flag was removable.

If you're still looking to add this Kris Revstopski to your collection, head to the Walmart or Target nearest to you to check for availability. If you'd rather just pick her up online, you can use the direct link below for the best current Amazon listing. 
Happy hunting!
