Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Case G Singles Leaves the Warehouse

What, did you want to buy new CARS singles in the last 3 months? Maybe Mattel was hoping you’d want to buy some Hydro CARS, some Micro Drifters, some play sets or some silver launchers … but damn it if you did not wait them out and bought not much of the flanker CARS lines – curse you shoppers who would not buy everything stamped CARS & MATTEL! What’s kind of target value shopper are you? :-)

The warehouse cried uncle and released CASE G …

main Case G

Even the “new” CARS in this case are essentially re-releases but it’s a nice retail case – highlighting the wide spectrum of characters (well, maybe not yet more Francesco’s) so while it might not be enticing enough to buy as an entire case but here’s to note:

“New”

Darrell Cartrip with headset is technically new though of course, he’s been often released, just the first time with headset and of course, he does not look much different than the lights and sounds version.

Mama Topolino while new to the singles packaging is not really new – released in a 2-pack last year though she has been upgraded to a unibody and while available in the 2-pack in Europe as a unibody, this is her first US release as a unibody. Unibody.

Miles Axelrod with opening hood is the first CHASE CARS of Themes 2013 cards.

Hard to Find Re-Releases

Sputter Stop has not available as a plastic tire CAR for a while (as a launcher or in a box set) and not as a single until way back in Kmart CARS Day 1.

Edwin Kranks – a few releases but hard to find.

And the rest.

If you are interested in a case, Children’sToyCloset is shipping these.

    Just scored Miles, Mama and Cartrip at Target this morning, yayayayayay! I went looking for planes 4 packs though and they had no Planes out at all yet. Maybe they are waiting to replace the Turbo end cap?

  • tiki-mon says:

    Is there suppose to be Miles Axlerod with open hood, or no? I’m seeing these at Targets now, but no Miles… Am I too late, or are they the super, super chase that only one in a few boxes?

  • D J says:

    Chase Mater Fan is out too, so isn’t that arguably the first Chase release?

  • gargan123 says:

    Speaking of extraneous Disney Cars merchandise that Mattel was hoping we would buy in the interim of few diecasts available…what ever happened to the last plastic hauler after Sal and Andre? I believe it was suppose to be Max Schnell’s hauler. I still picked these up even though they are not diecast they still display well with the Mattel Cars and I don’t think we are going to get anymore diecast haulers from Mattel at this point. Did we even get a name for the last hauler in this series?

  • JB says:

    I truly do not understand the marketing for Mattel’s Cars funnel. There are eight to ten of those per case that are not worth the retail asking price. I can name five replacements easily, Todd, Leroy Traffic, Lizzie, Hamm, Yeti. Three Rips per case seems like a smarter move. You have people paying over $30 bucks for him at this time. A re-release of the Monster Cars two pack would have been smart with the new movie coming out. Want to make a cool chase series Mattel? Number 1-10, Mood Springs, Tank Coat, Tach-O-Mint, Dale Jr, Bumper Save, Retread, Fiber Fuel, No Stall, Tow Cap, and Easy Idle. Bunch of freaking rocks, I am for hire .

      Just as a side note, I’ll bet Dale Jr never gets released again. That’s his old car design from his former employer (which is now out of business). So who would sign off on allowing it to come out again?

  • MackDaddy says:

    Yawn… :eek:

  • BMW says:

    Saving for Convoy Bros. Not much in this case for long time collectors.

  • Tom says:

    Eh, more Francesco, really? Nice to see Edwin, Sputter Stop & Darrel are in there is good numbers. I like the idea of a moveable piece on Miles too. Wish more Cars did something besides sit there.

  • jjaredd says:

    How do the chase cars work for 2013? Is it 1 per case or 1 in every other case?
    Is there a pattern for them?

    Any response would be helpful.

    Thanks

    (MET: yes, there will be a CHASE in every case and when the Super Chases come later on, it looks like a repeat of 2012 – one SUPER CHASE in evry special case).

    Can’t wait to get mama, I have been wanting her for a long time but could never find her in the previous 2 pack release.

  • Ferris says:

    As a new collector, I am excited for Edwin and Sputter!

  • bubba101212 says:

    I already have Francesco pegwarming nightmares. For months on end that is all my Walmart had.
    Thanks Mattel 3 more is exactly what we needed.

    Evetyone knows that there is no “I” in T-E-A-M, but there’s certainly a “G” in P-E-G-W-A-R-M-E-R-S, sheesh Mattel!!
