Cars 3: Hot Rod River Scott

Hey everyone and welcome back to the blog! Tonight I'm taking a quick look at another Cars 3 1:55 scale diecast from Mattel—Hot Rod River Scott. This brand new release just hit shelves a few weeks back (as part of Singles Case C for 2021) and I was lucky enough to score it at my nearest Target.

Despite what you might think when initially seeing this release, this diecast is actually canon! At first I thought it was totally made up my Mattel, but then realized that River Scott IS actually seen with this "hot rod" paint job in Cars 3—during the end credits in a photograph as shown in the screenshot above. Pretty cool and very subtle! A "hot rod" Smokey was also released (seen HERE), however that design was never seen in the film and therefore is not canon. Hot Rod Junior Moon was released in 2019 (see my review HERE) and Hot Rod Louise Nash is slated to come out later this year to complete the moment.

You can find Hot Rod River Scott currently at your local Walmart, Target or Amazon using the link below. As usual, happy hunting and let me know your thoughts down in the comments!
