Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: Schuco German Lightning 1:18

“Frank F” sends along an interesting heads-up on a German-only release from old school diecast company, Schuco – an 1:18 scale Lightning McQueen.

But they’ve taken it a step further! Opening hood!



Well, I guess we now know that his engine is where you’d think it should be. I guess his tongue is under the engine block. 🙂

Lightning appears to be old school – is that a distributor cap with plugs?

The clasps that hold on his back spoiler look nice and detailed – actually removeable? (as Lightning did to appear as Cruisin’ Lightning in CARS 1) – nice even if it’s not removeable – just that it looks like it could be is a great touch.LM backThere’s not much direct distribution in the US but a few of these will probably sneak over. It looks like it’s limited to 2,500 and “Frank F.” thinks it’ll be around 60€.

Of course, every Schuco diecast from 1:87 and on up is always nicely done like this cool 1:18 scale MicroBus coming …markin

Thanks for the nice heads up, “Frank F.”
