Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: TRU Sale on Original Flo’s V8 Cafe
By
[24 Aug 2014|No Comment]

“Danrio” spotted this nice deal at TRU. It’s unclear how long the sale lasts or if it’s in store – but you can ship/pick up at store for free in case you don’t hit the $49 free shipping offer. This might even be lower than the original price back in 2006. I think I paid […]

Mattel Disney Planes Fire & Rescue: Smokejumpers Size Sized
By
[24 Aug 2014|3 Comments]

The Disney Store diecast metal Smokejumpers have finally been released so now we have all the major contenders checking in and frankly, no one has done all 5 (6 counting Maru) correctly so basically, you can mix and match or just go with one line. Tomy from Japan are mostly right sized but their Dynamite […]

Mattel Disney Planes F&R: Deluxe Oversized – Ryker v. Disney Ryker
By
[24 Aug 2014|2 Comments]

Thanks for the great comparison pics, “Cars4MySon.” In a nice surprise, Ryker from Mattel is actually larger than the Disney Store AND it also comes with a moving water canon arm (there’s probably an official word for the pointy hose thing) … This is one of the few instances where the Mattel version is larger […]

Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: Many Ways to Look at New TRU Pricing
By
[23 Aug 2014|8 Comments]

Great news! TRU seems to have doubled the value of your CARS diecast! Well, technically 71% increase in value … that is the only way to look at it, right? Right? Right? Or if you prefer, 42% inflation. Not so good. Of course, you don’t mind paying extra as charity to Bain Capital Partners LLC, […]

Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: Piston Cup Racers 5-Packs
By
[23 Aug 2014|5 Comments]

There’s no listing for how many box sets there will be … this might be the first one? It might make sense since they are producing Tach-O-Mint for the first case of singles, this might be the 1st 5-pack. The most basic math is that we’ll get 35 of the Piston Cup racers in 7 […]

Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Costanzo Della Corsa Returns
By
[22 Aug 2014|7 Comments]

One more Radiator Springs Classic release to go after the arrival of Costanzo Della Corsa … same as the last release, segmented face. Milton Calypeer is the only one left on the list – does this line continue to 2015? Nothing new yet. Tweet This Post

Mattel Disney Planes Fire & Rescue: Corn Fest Vitaminamulch
By
[22 Aug 2014|4 Comments]

At first, this looked like a fantastic set too good to be true … sadly I think it’s too good to be true … all the evidence points to this NOT as diecast metal. If you look closely, Dusty just has too many seams, clearly no real reason to create a new diecast body just […]

Mattel Disney Planes Fire & Rescue: Race to the Rescue Play Pack
By
[21 Aug 2014|6 Comments]

Something new, an all-plastic 1:55 release (not diecast metal) in a box called Race to the Rescue Play Pack. Looks cute. The log actually seems like the best thing – it splits open and the flames protrude. The plastic Maru hooks up the wagon but neither of the diecast releases of Maru work with this […]
