    For those of us that are just looking to get one of each character from the Cars2 line, I'd recommend the TRU exclusive 5 packs as a starting point They're on sale this week for $15.99 which is a better value than getting all those cars as singles.

    Also, TRU has an exclusive McQueen with metallic finish so keep an eye out for those.

    Those Lego sets look quite tempting, especially the V8 Cafe!

    That's weird. The TRU i went to had them still listed at $22.99. Even when I scanned them! But I'm conflicted as to which exclusive sets to get because I'm tired of getting Lightning McQueen already! I think the TRU sets only had one exclusive car in there didn't they?

    Here's so far what I did get:

    SINGLES - $3.99 each ($4.14 at Toys'R'Us)
    -#5 Holley Shiftwell
    -#6 Professor Z
    -#12 Acer


    DELUXE - $7.99 each
    -Red
    -Double Decker Bus

    TWIN PACKS - $7.99 each ($8+ at ToysRUs)
    -Mater / Zen Master Pitty (exclusive car)
    -Darrel Cartrip / Brent Mustangburger (exclusive car)
    -Grem / "Damaged" Rod Torque Redline (exclusive car)
    -Luigi & Guido / Uncle Topolino (exclusive car)
    -Finn McMissile / Tomber (exclusive car) - purchased weeks ago for $10

    EXCLUSIVES
    -Toys'R'Us Lighting McQueen w/ Metallic Finish - $6.99
    -Target Racing 4-Pack: Lightning McQueen, Max Schnell, Jeff Corvette, Carla Veloso - $18.99
    -Target Racing 4-Pack: Francesco Bernoulli, Shu Todoroki, Nigel Gearsley, Raoul CaRoule - $18.99

    There's a THIRD Target Racing 4-Pack with the unfortunate combination: Lightning McQueen, Francesco Bernoulli, Shu Todoroki, and one exclusive vehicle unavailable anywhere else (Miguel Camino). It's making it a real pain to to "collect them all" without having any duplicates.



    so far I'm missing:
    -Race Team Fillmore
    -#15 Race Team Sarge
    -#16 Rod Torque Redline (normal - easy to find just haven't picked it up)
    -#17 Miles Axelrod
    -Deluxe Kingpin Nobunaga
    -#18 Petrov Trunkov
    -Miguel Camino



    But searching Ebay I found an upcoming 3packs release so... maybe you should decide if these "Character Stars 3packs" fit your fancy:
    -Mater, Lightning, Double Decker Bus
    -Grem, Professor Z, deluxe submarine Finn McMissle
    -Acer, Petrov, Holley Shiftwell w/ spy wings


    there's also special Wal-Mart 2packs!
    -Finn McMissile w/ weapon & Grem
    -Mater w/ spy glasses & Acer

    I went to TARGET and a scalper was out in full force. Filled his shopping basket.

    I bought a few things.... Target had these Race Car 4packs, one of which included Lightning. I also bought the Deluxe carded RED.

    I'll swing by and take a look! Thanks for the tip! From what I'm seeing, the british flag Ramone is a Disney Store exclusive as well.

    Hey justjohn, is it Brett Mustangberger that you're talking about? Disney Store has a slightly larger scaled version of him for $6.50.

    Got a 2010 Canada Convention Ramone for $16 shipped on eBay. Its supposed to be 1/25 so it looks like a custom. There is another listed at $100 so I probably got a decent deal.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/2010-PIXAR-Cars-...c#ht_500wt_689

    This guy has another convention ramone listed. Nice blue with flames but I'm not spending $100 on a car.

    They've hit our local WalMart now. Need to get the 65 mustang for
    Bree as a single. They only had it in a 2 pack


    The two packs include ONE exclusive car. Not sure if the 65 mustang or the other car is the single as of yet.

    Coheteboy: Nice score! Tomber makes me laugh--the word means "To Fall" in French

    I found the first 10 singles of Cars 2 at a Family Dollar, but they were $5. May not keep them when the big release happens in a couple weeks. I'm still trying to figure out the most efficient way to purchase these (singles, 2-packs, 3-packs, etc) to avoid getting too many duplicates.

    YES! A Robin Reliant! I hope he falls over as funnily as he did in that episodes of Top Gear.

    Here's Barry Diesel...he's actually pretty good scale. Almost bigger than the haulers.






    And... I got this from scalpers.

    Glad I'm not the only one who picked up one of those puppies on clearance without knowing what to do with it

    Barry Diesel arrived today from MattyCollector. He looks cool, but rather pricey with the shipping, etc.

    My local Targets are completely wiped clean of their CARS product. I was able to snag one more set (the one with all the cameracars and photogs) for only $15 which is 50% off. Dunno what I'll do with it yet.

    I decided to call Disneyland Delivears about the 3 Cars and found out, at least for now, that they are only available at WDW. So I ordered them via phone and can check that off the list

    Nothing new here lately. I did get Barry Diesel ordered and he should be here soon. No sign of Miles or Leroy Traffik w/snow tires. I keep checking the Target codes at my local store to see if Cars 2 stuff is in back but no luck. I've got a friend headed to Disneyland next weekend and have asked him to look for Pirate Mater, Goofy Mater & Mickey McQueen for me. Anyone seen those at DL yet? He'll be in the Parks the first week of May.

    That's about it. I'm expecting to see a lot of cars mid-May, and hope some of those are from the original Cars movie too

    They're not supposed to be but that particular Target location had no other Cars product to fill the shelves with and so they put them out early.
