    See ya walkin' right down the middle of o'l Main Street USA
    I was referring to them as toys in Stanley's bag that was mentioned in Al's report, not full size cars.

    It's not that big of a deal IMO.

    The same way they didn't want a find Jack Sparrow game?

    The guys in marketing care about one thing: promoting the Disney brand any way they can. That is why Buena Vista street could not remain the star if the show, why a bakery in a a turn-of-the century small American town has a British nanny running it, and why it is so hard to find land-specific merchandise anymore. if those guys had ther way there would not only be Toy Story nods, but princess, pirate, and Marvel as well. And they wouldn't be subtle either. They would be as in-your-face as Miley's picture on Lincoln.

    Surely the mountain of generic merchandise in Cars Land already lets other stories and characters creep in.

    Al's update about Cars Land

    So there is a lot of talk about Al's newest update. Of everything everybody is saying, only 1 thing really surprises me:

    "The original concept had a small Woody doll sticking out of the bag, as a sly nod to other Pixar successes. But John Lasseter and Pixar nixed that idea, not wanting to let other stories and characters creep into the Cars Land environment."

    That seems wrong to me. I know for a fact, as I have seen them, there are toy Story characters in cars land. In the cozy Cone Motel office you will find Buzz, Hammy, Rex. Also in one of the stores you can see on display the snowman globe from one of the short stories they did.
    So why would they nix adding woody to the display. I think it would be great, I always enjoy looking for "Hidden Mickeys" and other hidden gems around the Disney parks.

    I hope John Lasseter isn't trying to stop that tradition....

    edit: sorry for the title typo apparently you can't change the title after submitting it.
