Cars 3: Jimmy Cables

Ready or not, I have another Mattel Cars 3 1:55 scale diecast to share with you tonight—Jimmy Cables, the Piston Cup stock car racer sponsored by team Intersection (No. 00)! Jimmy was originally available way back in 2017 as an exclusive in THIS Motor Speedway of the South 11-Pack. There was no way I was forking out $45 for just this and one other "first look" character in that set though, so I'm happy my patience has finally paid off. This diecast started hitting Target shelves just this past month (2021 singles Case E) and is the very first time Jimmy has ever been released as a single. 

As shown in the screen shot above, Jimmy Cables can be briefly spotted at the beginning of Cars 3 during the opening "Run That Race" montage. Blink and you miss him! Later on in the film, he is replaced by next-gen racer Flip Dover.

I will note, Jimmy's colors appear much more pinkish/purple in the film compared to this diecast's red/pink look (not sure why Mattel's colors are off with this one)—so keep that in mind when looking out for him while watching the movie. Maybe Mattel will correct his colors one day; they tend to go back and do stuff like that.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Jimmy at your nearest Target (or on eBay HERE) and stay tuned for more from my Disney·Pixar Cars collection right here soon. Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below!
