Usually we come to an end of a series and then it goes away. Disney is not letting the Cars line die out any time soon. As Cars 2 toys still warm the pegs at every major toy aisle in existence, every so often we are gifted with a new car or two. In this case, we get 4 of the large scale “oversized” vehicles. Lightning and Mater in their space clothes, as well as a couple of support aircraft for their return to Earth.
Lightning looks great. Take a general Lightning model, add a jetpack, wheels, and a really great helmet, and you have one of the best Cars figures to date.
I will say one of the best for Lightning, because Mater IS the best figure to date. There was so much work done with him. Boosters all over, a hood, white paint, touches of gold paint, an external fuel tank, and of course the great clear helmet.
I was pretty sure I was done collecting the Cars line of vehicles. But these two were too good to pass-up. They stand out in the collection with a great unique look.
