Cars: Luigi & Guido (w/Tires & Bumper Sticker)—"Welcome to Radiator Springs"

Late this past summer, I posted about some new Target exclusive Mattel Disney·Pixar Cars diecasts that were released as part of an unexpected (at least to me as they weren't on the official 2020 poster) "Welcome to Radiator Springs" series. At the time, there were six single cars in this little side-series (each of which comes with a brand new/unique bumper sticker and a neat little character specific accessory): Radiator Springs Lightning McQueen (with video phone), Blowing Bubbles Mater (with hay bail), Sally with Tattoo (with dinner table), Ramone (with oil can), Doc Hudson (with Piston Cup trophy) and Sheriff (the only one with no accessory). You can see them all HERE. A "Welcome to Radiator Springs 4-Pack" (with Sarge w/traffic cone) was released at that time as well. 

Flash forward to early fall and a second "Welcome to Radiator Springs" wave hit with three additional characters—which was just as surprising as the first! It featured Fillmore (with organic fuel gas can), Lizzie (with radio) and this here Lugi & Guido 2-pack (with tires)! I was able to find these at Target a little while back. Now I certainly didn't need to pick up yet another Luigi and Guido, but I'm a sucker for any kind of extra accessories for world-building. I know I have a similar, if not the same, tire stack (came with THIS Pit Crew Member Guido from 2015), but can you really have too many of them? This is the world of Cars we're talking about after all.

Sure, not the most exciting release (or blog post for that matter), but I had to document it. You can still find this 2-pack, and essentially all the "Welcome to Radiator Springs" diecasts, at your nearest Target—so be sure to get them while you can! If you'd rather snag this one online, I've included an Amazon affiliate link below. You can also check out current eBay listings HERE.
 Good luck on the hunt! Let me know if you have any questions.
