If it’s something Disney/Pixar Cars related, chances are pretty good it’s going to be added to my collection. Since my Cars Collecting started in 2007, in addition to the diecast releases, have collected metal/tin signs, Shake ‘n Go and Crash ‘Em releases.
This week, Funko released its first releases from Disney/Pixar Cars. The release consisted of Mater, Lightning McQueen, Doc Hudson and Ramone. Mater, being my favorite character from the film, was a no-brainer that I would be adding him to my collection. How can you have Mater without his best buddy, Lightning McQueen? I liked these immediately from the photo when announced (see below), even more so in person.
There is great detail on all four. Their designs still look like Pop! Vinyls, but have a style all their own. I also like how Funko redesigned the boxes to fit the characters, instead of trying to fit the characters to the boxes. I appreciate them adding in Mater’s teeth, but I feel a mouth of some sort would have made Lightning, Ramone and Doc’s design look that much better.
As of this writing, I picked up three of the four, how soon before Doc joins my collection? ☺
It didn’t take long. As of this posting, Doc Hudson has joined the rest of the gang from Radiator Springs. The gang’s all here… Ka Chow!
