Disney does a great job with their toys. I love the Cars line. The Planes line they have in the box stores… not so much. Luckily, there is a Disney store near my house, and occasionally I find a treasure there like Franz Fliegenhosen here. He is a part of the larger scale Planes vehicles that come packaged in the clear acrylic boxes. They are nicer and larger than the figures you can find at Toys R Us, Walmart, and Target.
Seen in Planes, he blends the lines of the two worlds, by transforming himself from a car to a plane. How fun is that? And best yet, we get to do it at home now.
I have 4 other planes that come in the acrylic boxes, and they are great. They are nice and large scale and fit in well with the Cars vehicles. This one though… he really blew me away. What a great figure. Fun to play with, and he is SO cute!
