Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: I See It All Clearly Now, Luigi & Guido with Glasses

“John H.” sends along nice photos of the new Luigi & Guido with Glasses …


Guido is all new with “twisting forks” and of course, the three glasses accessory.


And it’s immediately obvious that Luigi is different also – they have added the black “mold” line around his windshield/eyes. This line was added to all of the Race Team Luigi’s for CARS 2 but this is the first regular Luigi with the windshield line.


However, since his eyes are different, for now, we’ll call him a different version (not a variant) until the next release of Luigi to get a final answer.


BTW, Luigi 2006 to 2011 (including lenticular) sported the silver frame and smaller license plate on the left. As Race Team Luigi, he was also available that way but was later switched to the larger black license plate variant without the silver frame – as is this release.

Presumably the same mold as V2 of Race Team Luigi.


From this angle, Guido’s bowtie looks like lips. FREAKY!

So, this is the most canon and correct of Luigi releases now so if you needed a reason to buy this single, time to replace your Luigi with a more canon one.

Thanks for the nice photos, “John H.”

    Love Guido’s expression on this one 🙂

  • pwschuh says:

    Is this scene from CARS or CARS2?

    • John in Missouri says:

      That last photo is from the courthouse scene from the original “Cars”, but Met is showing it to compare Guido’s mouth’s expression to how his bow tie looks on the “Cars 2” toy.

        Thanks. But what I meant was this set of “Luigi and Guido with shaker and glasses.” Is this set supposed to represent a scene from CARS or CARS2 ? (Is there a Wagon Wheel scene in the second movie?)

        • MoMcQueen says:

          You betcha. Near the start of Cars 2, Luigi and Guido moonlight as bartenders in the newly-refurbished Wheel Well Motel. There’s a scene that takes place in the restaurant/lounge where the diecast Waiter Mater is born as he serves drinks to the two-pack Lightning McQueen and Sally at their tiny plastic table.

    From the pics, it looks like the vents on his trunk are different too. He also got a larger aftermarket tailpipe.

    Another fine article Met. Always something new to learn about our favorite characters. I immediately noticed the eyes up look on Luigi when I found several Case Q’s, but didn’t notice the change to the license plate until your article.
