1986 Buick Grand National Chick Hicks (Dinoco) Disney Pixar Cars Movie Diecast Scale 1:55 by Mattel


Es muy difícil que una buena historia sea, ya saben, buena... Si no hay un personaje malo, que trate de echar a perder todo. 

Ajá !!!... Nuestro invitado para el día de hoy, destila envidia por cada uno de sus metálicos poros y tiene, sin saberlo, un letrero enorme en su parabrisas que dice: "Tengo un ego con 4 turbocargadores y caballos de potencia de sobra, así que, ódiame cuanto quieras !!!"...

No sé si sea casualidad (y realmente no lo creo) que hayan escogido al "maloso" Buick Grand National modelo 1986, para "personificar" a Chick Hicks (claro, había otros Buick en la pista, pero sólo uno era Hicks), pues este "Auto de Alto Desempeño" tiene una reputación (buena/mala, dependiendo de tu punto de vista...) en las competencia de 1/4 de milla, como "Dragster" y se ve bastante bien para ser un villano !!!...

No necesito repetir (o si ???) lo mucho que me han gustado estos diecast de Mattel y son un bocadillo delicioso para el niño que vive en mí. 


Su trabajo de pintura y tampografía es bastante bueno (vieron el detalle de los logos de los patrocinadores ???) y estamos hablando de una pieza de 3 1/2" de largo !!!... 

Y la expresión de sus ojos "tapatíos" lo dice todo: "no ves el desprecio que siento por tí en mis ojos ???"...

It’s very difficult for a good story to be, you know, good... If there is not a bad guy, who tries to ruin everything. 

Yeah !!!... Our guest for today, distills envy by each one of his metallic pores and he has, unknowingly, a huge sign on his windscreen which says: "I have an ego with 4 turbochargers and horse power to spare, so hate me all you want !!!"...

I don’t know if it was by chance (and actually, I don’t think so) that they have chosen the "badass" Buick Grand National model 1986, to "embody" Chick Hicks (of course, there were other Buicks on the racetrack, but only one was Hicks), because this "High Performance Car" has a reputation (good/bad depending on you point of view...) in the quarter mile competitions, as a "Dragster" and he looks pretty good to be a villain !!!...

I don’t need to repeat (do I ???) how much I liked these Mattel diecasts and they are a delicious snack for my inner child. 


Its paint and pad printing job is pretty good (did all of you see the tiny sponsors’ logos ???) and we are talking about a 3 1/2" long piece !!!... 

And the look in his "Guadalajara" eyes says it all: "don’t you see the contempt I feel for you in my eyes ???"...
