Disney Pixar CARS: Disney Store Europe Lightning Series Revealed
Thanks to the sleuthing powers of “David V.,” we can rest a little easier. The Disney Store Country Flag Lightning McQueen series is 1:43 scale.
So, if you are a Mattel 1:55 series collector, you can relax and the nightmare thought of chasing down an Isle of Man Lightning McQueen to trade for a Lichtenstein one is not happening.
If you’re a Disney Store 1:43 completist collector, you’ve got work to do and make some European buddies …
Based on this design, we can guess that the Spain design will look like Miguel Camino’s motif on the roof and sides, Francesco’s for the Italian, Max Schnell for Germany, Shu for Japan and Nigel Gearsley for GB … Lightning presumably will look pretty much the same except for an American flag on the hood? US Disney claims it will NOT be Stars & Stripes Lightning McQueen.
So, the designers will have more free rein on the remaining 5 countries – it will be interesting to see what they come up with.
So, US Disney Store diecast collectors will have a new set of CARS to add to your collector. If you’re strictly a 1:55 collector, we all dodged a bullet.
I’m not exactly sure why these are not going to be available in the US, it would seem that collectors would like the option of collecting this series …
Thanks for the info and pics, “David V.”
