Pixar Truck Hauler Mack with two Lightning Mcqueen
Found this awesome truck hauler Mack at my local Disney Store, it was the last one available there. Great addition to my Pixar collection! This is a Mattel truck from pixar cars, he's the one who carries Lightning McQueen. This toy box comes with two small Lightning McQueen, one with Rust-eze stickers and the other with the custom paint job from the end of the movie.
Mack is a 1980s-era Mack Super-Liner truck bearing license plate "RUSTEZ3", voiced by John Ratzenberger. A dedicated member of the Rust-eze Medicated Bumper Ointment Team, Mack pulls Lightning McQueen's trailer to his races. After McQueen's entire pit team quits, Mack remains as the rookie racer's only friend. McQueen exhorts Mack to drive through the night to his tiebreaker race with Chick Hicks and Strip Weathers in Los Angeles, California, hoping to reach the venue first and to hang out with the Dinoco team. During the long drive, Mack falls asleep and falls victim to the Delinquent Road Hazards, a group of reckless street racers. The Delinquent Road Hazards knock Mack all over the road, causing one of McQueen's bobble heads to fall off its perch and hit a button, opening his trailer door and dump a sleeping McQueen onto the road.
When Mack awakens, he is unaware that McQueen has gotten lost and has ended up in Radiator Springs. Eventually, Mack travels to Radiator Springs and, under threat of being fired by McQueen's agent, Harv, transports McQueen to Los Angeles. There he serves as McQueen's pit crew until a group of McQueen's friends from Radiator Springs show up to help. After the race, Mack moves to Radiator Springs with McQueen.
During the end credits, Mack is at the drive-in theater watching car versions of other Pixar films (A Bug's Life, Toy Story, Monster's Inc) and while he enjoys the car-versions of other characters his voice actor played (Hamm, The Piggy Bank, P.T Flea, and The Abominable Snowman), he realizes that they're all the same actor and says "They're just using the same actor over and over. What kind of cut-rate production is this?" He is also shown at Flo's Cafe in the short film Mater and the Ghostlight, as well as in the video game based on the film. Mack will reappear in Cars 2.
Lightning McQueen, typically referred to by his surname McQueen, and occasionally called "Stickers" by Sally, is the main protagonist and is voiced by actor Owen Wilson in the films and by Keith Ferguson on other occasions. He is named after Glenn McQueen, a Pixar Animator who died of melanoma in October 2002, although the car shares certain traits with actor and race car driver Steve McQueen. His overall profile was inspired by stock cars and a "more curvaceous Le Mans endurance racer", e.g., Lola and Ford GT40. His number, 95, is a reference to the year Pixar released its first feature-length movie, Toy Story.
