Disney Pixar CARS: Mega Bloks Are a Mega, Mega Blast O’Fun! (UPDATED)

Okay, I admit I’m not really collecting them but if I had an extra, extra bedroom, I might break down and add them to my list.

They are definitely cool though it loos like this will be the last year we will see these blocky fun CARS from Mega as Lego has signed a master deal with Disney so in 2010, they are doing the switchover to Duplo. CARS will not be getting the LEGO treatment, just Duplo … we can probably blame Speed Racer for that also.

So, a little tribute and a visual checklist if you’re collecting the Mega Bloks …

My feeling is that some of these are oddly name so Pixar & Mattel do not get them confused with what’s going with the 1:55 series and other of the “more traditional” sets at retail.

The prices are listed so you get an idea of what original retail was and all links are to Amazon.

Thanks MiaSenorita!

There is also a Mega Bloks Dale Jr but I don’t know the scale …

So, it looks like Mega Bloks is being squeezed out Lego’s DUPLO … BTW, “Mega,” is Canada’a largest toy company … they actually make some pretty interesting Mega Bloks items that I’m not sure available in the US like this one …
