Oh man, is Cabbie sharp looking! Grandpa will be taking a day off of work on July 18 so we can bring our 6 and 2 year old grandsons to see Disney's "Planes" sequel, and they're SO excited! We understand Cabbie used to be a military transport plane, modeled after a Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar, who's now back in action carrying the Smokejumpers (Dynamite, Pinecone, Avalanche, Blackout and Drip) to fight fires at "Piston Peak" (none of the Smokejumpers are included with Cabbie - you have to purchase those separately.) The back hatch of this oversized 1:55 scale plane drops down, so up to three of the Smokejumpers can "parachute out" and help save the day! Cabbie measures @ 16"L with an 18" wing span, and stands @ 6-3/4"H at the top of his tail. Walmart originally listed him at $18.97, but then raised the price to $24.99 - still the best price we've seen so far. Unless Amazon comes down (the lowest price as of today is $39.50 & $4.01 shipping, and even more - $51.99! - with "free" shipping on orders over $35... guess they're trying to take advantage of the pre-release hype!), we'll probably go ahead and pick one up there and hide him away until Christmas. The only negative we see about Cabbie is that he's got stickers... we'll see how they hold up, as compared to the tampograph decals that were etched into the super durable plastic of the R/C Everett plane transporter and Stephenson train transporter we purchased as part of our "Cars" collection.

We started collecting Mattel 1:55 scale diecasts for our older grandson with "Cars 2", and our satisfaction with the quality led us to starting a "Planes" collection for him last Christmas. He really enjoys lining up these sturdy little guys for races, with Grandpa and I in the family room "grandstands" rooting for our favorites, and they're durable enough that his little brother can occasionally snatch one and hurl it through the air with no damage done. We've got another grandson due to arrive around Labor Day, so all of these diecast collections will do triple duty, and we really believe they're tough enough that we'll be able to box them up one day to be shared a generation later with our GREAT grandchildren!

(P.S. I did end up purchasing this from Amazon for $19.99 on 11/19, and a few other Fire & Rescue items as well.)

Cabbie is a great addition to my son's collection of Planes characters. This one is plastic (the win
gs have some flex, as opposed to the Bravo plane, which doesn't and we've had to do some glue of the tail more than once). He got it for his birthday and it has been a fairly constant companion since then. There is a cargo space beneath the tail area. He has stuffed all sorts of stuff in there (I had to get an orca out of there at one Trek-like moment). It doesn't say anything like some of the Planes items, the only parts that are actionable are the wheels, propellers and that cargo door. We're off to seek out the little characters that fit in Cabbie soon.

great toy. cabbie plane does not come with smoke jumpers. Which is great since we bought the jumper set at target. cabbie holds up to 3 jumpers.
The packaging is not like the store display packaging. It comes in the brown shipping box that has a planes logo and reads cabbie on the side.

My son turned 5 today and we surprised him with this awesome plane! He's wanted a plane for forever that you can load things into and I finally found one. It's very large and super cool looking! You can put any type of cars inside (we for four hot wheels) of it. The only negative I would say is that the emblems on it are mostly stickers (already put on for you) which I though was pretty cheap because stickers wear off. It's very hollow and lightweight but seems like it'll hold up over time. He is very pleased with it and thinks its "awesome"!

I gave this to my son for his fourth birthday and he absolutely loves it. Just a bit of extra information about it. If your kids also like the Transformers one step changers, the smaller cars such as Prowl and Drift fit in the bay. This was a big plus for my son and he couldn't be happier with this item.

Purchased as a birthday present for our son's 3rd birthday. His birthday isn't for 2 more weeks but the package arrived on time as promised and the package was in great shape. I know he's going to love this present! Thank you!! Will definitely order again :)

Not like the one in ToysRUs. I should have paid the couple extra dollars. Decals are already coming loose from the plane, right out of the box, and are placed really crooked. Not the quality I hoped for. May pick up one at ToysRUs and return this.

This is WAY COOL and huge...well, sort of huge. Very substantial size and great quality. Your little ones will love it. Great delivery and packaging. Be sure to buy some little cars or planes to go along with this. Great gift.

Solid Plane. Feel most parts and pieces are built to last. Owned for about 1 month and one of the fins on the propeller has snapped off. Wings are not hard plastic, but have some give to them. It would take a lot to break them though. Easy to assemble. Comes packaged in about 5 pieces that just need to be snapped in place. Wheels turn, but do not retract. The hull is hollow all the way to the nose of the plane for lots of transporting capacity and is door is sturdy. A generous measurement of the opening in the back is about 2in wide by 1.5in tall. Little green army men or matchbox cars easily go inside along with the other Planes Fire & Rescue vehicles. From wingtip to wingtip, the plane is 18in wide and from front to back, the plane is about 16.5in. Height of plane's tail fins is just over 6in; rest of plane is about 3.5in.

Overall a really great plane, but I'm a little disappointed to find the propeller fin busted, but that's probably more my 2yr old's fault than the toy.

I'd buy this toy again without hesitation and my boys love it.

My 2.5 year old went balistic when this came in the mail. Very happy with it. Fits 3 air jumpers as stated. Maybe a little wiggle room for one more but I wouldn't know, I only have 3 jumpers.
