Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 3: Chester “Lightning McQueen” Whipplefilter

Thanks “John H.” for the great photos.

Lightning McQueen masquerading as Chester Whipplefilter is a fun diecast … he comes in two variants.

He is also available in the Demo Derby series with the burning oil drum accessories.

He sports a different expression that the singles/2-pack release.

The “this is not going to end well expression.”

The FIRST singles is on the left with the singles 2-pack eye position and expression. The first release also features a shiny overspray … which they realized did not make much sense while covered in mud so the singles version eventually has the matte look like the Demo Derby version (with original eye position).

In all other aspects, he looks essentially the same.

However, more subtle, they changed his tires to slightly smaller and less shiny also.

    I’m soo excited for this! I love Lightning, I mean, Chester XD

    Hey, I have a question, do you remember your post of the Cars marketing in 2006 http://www.takefiveaday.com/2008/03/12/disney-pixar-cars-a-walk-down-cars-advertising-memory-lane/

    Well, someone told me there was another AT&T commercial, where all the Radiator Springs gang were reunited and Ramone was talking to Flo, I found it interesting and as you’re the one who posted the AT&T commercial with Lightning in the pits then I want to ask you if you have actually seen it, and tell me if it really existed? Thank you 😀

    (MET: Not sure I recall that one – I’ll look through my files … probably still on my hundreds of videotapes still to be transferred … 🙂 ).
