The first Super Chase of 2016 is BUD (RV).

Thanks for the great pics, “John H.”

Thanks “John H.” who adds these additional notes:

“Least interesting Super Chase since Ciao Francesco. Sure it’s a new sculpt and a very heavy one with lots of metal, but really devoid of any character.

The one redeeming feature might have been the mural on the rear but it’s done in a very poor quality printing that really detracts.

First example I bought was missing its antenna and the rear mural has a huge fingerprint in it that’s still sticky from the factory after however many months.

When I posted about the missing antenna, someone else posted that theirs was also missing. So you might warn your readers that this seems to be a potential problem.

I bought a second one on a bad card (which was OK since we open them) and found lots of uncleaned flashing in the rectangular window openings. (should have been cleaned off before painting)

So quality is lacking also.

Really wish Mattel would stop doing chases.”

Based on the Pixar short, “Boundin’.”

    I was able to get two of these. One has the jackalope decal off-center, and has the mentioned flashing around the windows. The other is pretty nice, other than the large divots where the casting gates were removed and not fully cleaned up.
    I also agree for a Super Chase, it is a pretty bland looking offering, but I am still happy to add Bud to the collection.

    I will agree that this thing is VERY heavy. I display mine hanging in th card and I have some longterm concerns about the weight pulling off the blister over time. Mine came with the antenna.
