    Re: Mattel's Cars & Cars 2 - discussion

    Forgot to mention that a couple days ago I found the Deluxe Pinion Tanaka too, so he's starting to show.

    Max showed up at Smith's Marketplace here in Utah too, but I have him from the box set. The one I'm really looking forward to is Miguel since I opted to not get the box set with him and have 3 repeats.

    I think I saw one today but since I already had it from one of the box sets, it didn't register with me that it was new.

    The single carded Max Schnell is starting to appear in Walmarts. That's where I found one yesterday.

    I'm out of town in Wyoming and found the first 2 KMart 2-packs in Jackson, which was a surprising but fun find.

    No worries. You may very well have posted it--I'm not too good at keeping up on here If anyone else is interested, let me know in the next couple days. I'm glad these things are pretty easy to find--hopefully more new stuff will be that way too!

    The extra is for Brand, if you want it. If not, it's fair game for anyone. So Brand, just let me know. It was $7.47 with the tax and I can ship it however you want. I realize shipping on just one car might not be worth it, so I can EASILY return this if you've found it already or if you (or someone else here) doesn't want it. No pressure, no worries...

    Otherwise, nothing really on the Cars front. I did decide to splurge and had the Disney Store ship me the Diecast Siddeley and Crabby and also the Union Jack Ramone when they had a free shipping deal. Pegs here are still clogged with Finn. I do see Ramone Hi-Lo from time to time. Nothing new with Deluxe from the second wrestler on. Of course, since the Cars 2 movie came out, I've added 50+ cars to the collection, so I really can't complain about 2011...
    Hey Dr. G, thanks so much for thinking of me. I am good on the Metallic Nigel Gearsley though. I guess I forgot to post about it when I got it, at one of my local TRU's, I could have bought 10 of them if I wanted to.

    Thanks once again though!

    On the contrary, you can get Vader on the vintage card, Vader in Saga Legends, and I'm sure there's some battlepack with Vader that's on store shelves. Oh yeah, and Vader in Target's Vintage 3 packs.

    Ah yes, but Vader sells and he's been around for decades. For a brand new line of toys, they wouldn't do that.

    OR... just gave people too many options to buy them. Hasbro's not going to release a Luke figure at the same time that Luke figure is packed with another character. That's just dumb.

    That's insane.




    My Finn McMissile collection is expanding. Now I'm REALLY glad i didn't get the deluxe one in the store. It's the same thing! I wish the exclusive gave him the breathing apparatus the he uses in the movie.




    And the check list shows off some new cars...





    And these are all pack-ins with a bunch of stuff we already have...

    I got mine as well. No wait at all. I don't think enough people knew about it. AND... in 2009, Mattel gave free CARS to everyone who came by. Too bad they didn't do that again.

    I never saw anyone in line for the Mattel exclusives and in hindsight the preorder system was probably unnecessary.
    Awesome! Thanks so much! PM me with the details and I'll get $ on the way. Anything you are still looking for that I can keep eyes on?

    Hey what's the diff between the D23 exclusive Finn McMissile submarine and the one in the stores? Just special paint and some floatie tires?
    Mattel claims "double Ransburg paint" so he should look more metallic.
