    Re: Mattel's Cars & Cars 2 - discussion

    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?

    I got the last metallic paint Jeff Gorvette in stock at my local TRU yesterday. Also picked up Cars Toon Mator (finally!) at another TRU.

    I'm s ure you can convince Brand to hook it up.

    I'd do it but I rather not... I was telling myself NO on these. If I help you, I will be forced to get myself a set.

    Disney Store has a Siddeley Spy Jet but he is even more underscaled than the Mattel version.
    They also have a diecast of Crabby (boat that transports McMissile in the beginning). He is large enough that they charge around $20 for him but he too is not to scale with anything, you certainly wouldn't be able to fit a McMissile on him.

    I got Hydrofoil McMissile yesterday and the best part was that he was only $5.99 (on sale at K-mart). Also got the Stephenson Spy Train from Walmart.

    I found Holley and the other lemon car today. Once for each of you. I know I saw Prof Z at some point. I go to the good Walmart tomorrow.

    Melonballer, you may look for me and CB. I'll let you know if I find them before you do.

    My friend got that Stephenson spy train for his collection so I'll wait to hear from him before deciding if I want or not.

    I saw the spy train at Wal-Mart today, it came with Mater. And I'll have to check out the spy jet at Disney Store to see if it's better there. It'll be more in scale that's for sure.

    This weekend I also bought me Raoul Caroule and Carla Veloso. I returned all the stuff I bought the first day. And darn it, Target, I just saw their Tokyo Party 7-pack. Comes with the new Lewis Hamilton and another exclusive vehicle and more rehashes for $30.


    Oh yah... Kmart gave me a poster checklist. Here's what's still to come:

    Next KMART event in October includes the following with synthetic tires:

    -Cars 2 Lightning McQueen
    -Jeff Gorvette
    -Lewis Hamilton
    -Miguel Camino
    -Carla Veloso
    -Max Schnell
    -Raoul CaRoule

    So basically... no need to go unless you really love the rubber tires!


    Also coming up for Character Cars:

    20 - Nigel Gearsley
    21 - Max Schnell
    22 - Shu Todoroki
    23 - Miguel Camino
    24 - Lewis Hamilton
    25 - Carlo Maserati

    2-PACKS
    -Race Team Fillmore & Lightning McQueen w/ Travel Wheels (already spotted this one)
    -Security Guard Finn & Acer
    -Race Team Mater & Sal Machiani


    DELUXE
    5 Kingpin Nobunaga
    6 Hydrofoil Finn McMissile
    7 Finion Tanaka
    8 Pope Pinion IV
    9 The Popemobile



    Having seen the movie, I dunno if I'm gonna go crazy with variants and background characters.

    I enjoyed the film so much that I went out and bought a Siddeley Spy Jet today! I'll hold onto the receipt in case he goes in sale soon.

    At my local Target, the pegs for the single cardeds are jam packed with Mater and McMissile. Come on people, start buying these two!

    As for my wishlist of future releases...I definitely want to army build Lemons and I want Stephenson (Finn and Holley's superspeed train). John Lassetyre (Jeff Gorvette's crew chief) is a must too.

    There were maybe 6-10 of us and they had a TON of cases. They gave us all raffle tickets. Then 5 at a time, they would call out 5 tickets and then that person would have 5 minutes to go through a fresh case and pick FOUR CARS. There were 7 new exclusives btw.

    After everyone got their four, then we would be able to go back and get what we wanted. IT WAS SO ANNOYING.

    But I picked up for myself:
    -shu
    -ramone
    -nigel gearsley

    I also picked up a bunch of 2packs because they were on sale for $5.99. I'm gonna return the ones i bought at Target for $7.99.
    It's funny because when we went at about 4, there were shopping carts FULL of the leftovers. I guess there wasn't as much demand as they thought. Easily found all of them (though only interested in the Pit Crew and Rubber tires McQueen). Just amazing how many left there were that late in the day.

    Picked up a Holley Shiftwell at TRU. Almost sprang for the Metallic finish McQueen, but seriously, how many of him do I need?
