Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Diecast: Metallic Rip – Kmart CARS Day Next Preview?

“Toyfountain” sends along these early pics of Silver/Chrome Metallic Rip Clutchgoneski …

Rip Chrome Pro

Presumably, he will be part of the mix at the next Kmart CARS Day – June, 2013.

What else will we get since the other 10 racers have already been released as crome metallic CARS?

Since the Hudson Hornet (sticker) Lightning McQueen (CARS 1 body) is available in Europe already, has not been released in the US* and they always include at least 1 Lightning McQueen in every set, that one seems pretty likely also.

* Of course, there is a chrome metallic red version included with the CARS Encyclopedia book.

But what else is/will be included?

In January, Disney alluded to a “silver series” line extension backed with a magazine encompassing CARS 1 and CARS 2 so will get the other non-racers done up in metallic chrome silver? Stay tuned.

Thanks for the fun pics of metallic Rip – thanks, “ToyFountain.”

    In silver and the colors, Rip looks like Francesco. Just my option.

    If the UK gets these silver racers on a 2013 style cardback, it’s a safe bet they’ll be out in the US and Kmart is the ideal time to launch them, maybe in two waves.

    It would also be an appropriate time for Mattel to add Rip as the 11th silver racer. It would be unforgivable if Rip wasn’t included, indeed now he is officially available as a diecast, then it would be unforgivable for Rip not to be included in any subsequent racer set!

    John, I know it’s Mattel we’re talking about here, but be positive, Rip WILL be released as a silver racer (at Kmart 10/11)!

    Note:

    The 2013 range (singles/deluxe/doubles) haven’t been launched in the UK yet! We ‘did’ have the ten silver racers, but they are now all but sold out, with maybe a few stores having residue stocks.

    The 2013 range proper isn’t due to be shipped to stores until the end of March at the earliest, meaning they won’t appear until early/mid April in stores in the UK! In spite of my advice, it’s difficult to be positive when Mattel UK is calling the shots!

    I’m not sure Rip will make it to the UK as a silver racer though. Mattel UK don’t use their imagination (put a silver rip in a regular box). They could easily have put the four unreleased cars from Cars 2 (Fabrizio etc)into 2013 cases, but the smart money says they won’t!

    Every time i read about this new “silver series” it always brings back memories of the GIJoe Sky Patrol line. they took old figures and vehicles, and slapped some silver paint on them. created some hokey story about how this shiny metallic silver paint made their vehicles stealthy; and re-released them. Good times.

    LOL@MET – after the fact confirmation from Kmart is not that much of an exaggeration.

    Rip, Hudson Hornet McQueen, Jeff Gorvette with the Corvette Logo (out in the UK and in Europe)… As SCAVENGER said, Chick and King are likely… and if we’re going to dream… how about Tach O Mint and Race Damaged Fabulous Hudson Hornet.

    I think it’d be awesome. Not holding my breath but would love to see it.

  • SCAVENGER says:

    I could easily see a metallic chick & king thrown into the mix as well. Which would cover 4 metallic cars and maybe a couple exclusive’s and there’s your kday + maybe a couple more??

  • Wraukn says:

    I’ve seen him on ebay for the past 8 months or so. Hopefully we’ll get him at the next Kmart day.

  • John in Missouri says:

    Has Kmart actually announced Rip as part of the mix, or is it pure conjecture at this point?

    (MET: Seems pretty likely but no definite word nor an official listing yet but KM CARS ted to get confirmation listings a few weeks after the event …).
