    Re: Mattel's Cars & Cars 2 - discussion

    I did Kmart this morning too but was really annoyed with the way they handled it. Rainman was right.

    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.

    I picked up a few at K-Mart today, also:

    Shu Todoroki- synth rubber tires
    Nigel Gearsley - synth rubber tires
    Francessco Bernoulli -synth rubber tires
    Hydraulic Ramone

    the all of those had the Cars 2 logo, but McQueen, The King, Chick Hicks all just said Cars, not Cars 2.

    I also stopped by a grocery store and they had a large display of cars merchandise, and found a few that I hadn't seen before:

    Wilmar Flattz (small pink car with a lightning mcqueen flag)
    Bye Bye Kar (pink van) in a Cars -toon package
    Dex (Cars toon package)
    small UFO Mator with oil cans (Cars toon package(

    Plus for some odd reason, they had several Professor Z, which was challenge trying to track down at Target, Walmart, and TRU.

    Picked up the Kmart McQueen with rubber tires and Pit Crew Mater today. Also NNL picked up Professor Z. Slowly gaining more of these than we thought.

    After seeing the movie, I think Holly Shiftwell might be on the list too.

    Gah, Proffesor Z with Tyler Gremlin? Glad I haven't opened any of these yet. Gonna have to get that one.

    I also found a different Target Racing 4pack. This set came with:
    -Lightning McQueen
    -Max Schnell
    -Jeff Gorvette

    and....

    -Ronnie Del Cooper


    Basically it means I'm returning the 4pack that comes with McQueen, Max Schnell, Jeff Gorvette, and Carla Veloso (since Carla is available as a single though harder to find right now).

    I'll also be returning the 4pack that comes with Francesco, Shu, Nigel Gearsley, and Raoul CaRoule. Raoul is a single, Francesco comes in enough other sets, and Shu and Nigel are Kmart exclusive singles.

    Man, this is so complicated!

    CB: Thanks for posting the info from Mattel--glad to hear that Cars 1 will still be represented in the line.

    This morning I found the Professor Z/Tyler Gremlin (red) Walmart exclusive 2-pack. I think that checks the Walmart and Target exclusives off the list (for now). Still looking forward to the TRU 10-pack and also the KMart cars this weekend. Hopefully the crew chief 2-packs will be showing up at Kmart soon too.

    Wow, there's so much for me to find now!

    In other news, I contributed to a question for Matty to answer and I thought you'd be interested:

    With CARS 2 dominating the shelves this summer, are there any plans to continue releasing characters from the first film? Barry Diesel was an interesting surprise on mattycollector.com.

    We know that collectors are still interested in finishing their collection from CARS 1, and while CARS 2 will be the focus for 2011, there will definitely be more CARS 1 characters coming your way. Please stay tuned in the upcoming months (especially as we get closer to Comic Con and D23), for more information about upcoming chase releases across both the CARS 1 and CARS 2 world. It’s a good time to be a CARS collector.



    Ay? Ay?? Cool right?

    Been a bit since I've been here. I'm still looking for Trunkov and Axelrod but I'm guessing they'll show up here eventually so I'll hold off and hopefully save shipping.

    This morning was productive. I found the Target 4-pack with the Mini Cooper and also found the Spy Train, Kingpin Nobunaga, Hydrofoil McMissile, and the Holley/Fred 2-pack at Walmart. So far so good on stores getting these things out.

    I know you're looking for the single but I have an extra 2pack if you need it! Brent Mustangburger is the exclusive vehicle so they may not release it as a single for awhile.

    The Target Race packs may be the way to go if they have a sale. $18.99 for four CARS means they're $4.75 each before tax.

    I should have mentioned this sooner but if you go to Target.com, click on coupons at the bottom and you can download/print one good for 10% off a Cars 2 item.

    My 2 metallic finish LMQ's are on the way from TRU.com...it'll be interesting to see what condition they arrive in, given my spotty experience with their shipping.

    Re: Mattel's Cars & Cars 2 - discussion

    I went a little crazy with some Car 2 purchases yesterday, and found an interesting variation on Rod. Found one Rod that did not have the tail lights painted red, like the others were.

    Got to Target a minute or two after they opened, and they were still finishing setting up the Cars 2 Display. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any single Chase vehicles. I do like a few of the cars that were in the 4 packs at Target. I did see the special painted McQueen at TRU, but really didn't like it that much. BUT I love the double decker bus! I might have to go back to TRU for the 2 pack with the damaged Rod.
