SDCC 2017 Exclusive The Making Of Cars 3 Lightning McQueen

SDCC+Lighting+McQueen

This release is a 3-pack of Lightning McQueen showing three different stages of the making of the character's official die-cast. The first car shows the raw metal and plastic foundation of McQueen, the second car shows added window deco and wheel rims, and the third car is a completed metallic finish of the Rust-eze Lightning McQueen die-cast. The black collector's box also features outside and inside graphics, hand sketches, and line art of Lightning McQueen from early development to final vehicle rendering. It was available for purchase exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con 2017.

Trivia

  • Each veteran racer that has the same model as Cal Weathers is released with the same name as the racer from the first film that carries the same sponsor, unless, of course, there is no racer in the first film carrying said sponsor. This strongly implies that they are the same characters, even though their models are different.
  • Series 1 of the Cars 3 Die-Cast Line marks the first time that Mattel didn't include character poses on the packaging. It's likely that Pixar might not have finalized the poses for minor characters in the film at the time, hence the packaging with just the Cars 3 logo. This was reinstated for the packaging for Series 2 of the Die-Cast Line.
