Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Chauncey Fares, the London Taxi Arrives … and The Meter is RUNNING!

Well, since a Big Mac Combo Meal costs about $9 in London and this nice house will cost you about $40 million – what’s 20-quid between friends for a ride with Chauncey?

“Craig K.” sends along pics of the latest Target 7-pack – London Race.

Well, if you turned 2-years old today and got your first box set of CARS – SCCCOOORREE!!!

But for everyone else – I think this can be best described with a UK English swear word that’s okay to shout in the US as we don’t really know it’s true meaning … like dog’s bollocks? Any others come to mind?

So, a ride in Chauncey Fares is like a ride from the airport … $29.99 or if your Target deems you upper middle class – $34.99. Maybe it’s $39.99 in CityTarget’s …

AND you/we/the huddled masses don’t even get a unibody Lighting McQueen but a TWO PIECER from 2011 – the oddball edge windshield.

So, Chauncey Fares looks nice – solid diecast metal but $29.99 or $34.99 is a bit spendy on ONE diecast.

Well, UK Ramone is making his second appearance so if you missed him in the first box set … and Race Team Sarge is not available as a single in 2013 so the glass is 1/5 full if you are the eternal optimist … are you not entertained?

Thanks for the great pics, “Craig K.” – we can certainly see what we are getting into.

GotFrank would like us to write to Matty Mattel, the Taxi Commission about …

    Saw this multi-pack at my local Target this a.m.
    Not ready to pull the trigger, but at least we finally
    have a new multi-pack to look at, and not just “forward to…”

    “The dogs bollocks” actually means the opposite (high praise) but nice try.

    How about “effing rip off”, much more apt given the extortionate cab fare theme ;)

    I’ll wait for the 100% all new exclusive box set featuring 13 never before made really super mega awesome set. Or…there’s always buying 13 box sets to get there.

    Seems so wrong to have just 1 new car in a 7 pack :(, the 4 packs are bad enough!

    What is the Target DCPI for this set? I’m still looking for the Mama Bernoulli and Alloy Hemberger sets myself. None of the Kansas City Targets have them and I check them all a couple times a week. All we have here in the Race Day Fan sets are the Clutch Foster and Marty Brakeburst sets. AAARRRGGGHHH!

  • Wraukn says:

    So maybe the UK Ramone is an exclusive to TARGET? He’ll show up in several Target sets.

    yeah the main problem is that Nigel, LMQ, and Francesco has been stuffed in nearly every other multi-pack out there. I wouldnt mind another UK Ramone or Flo, I mean these cars are reasonably priced if you actually want them ($4.29 each with the redcard, after tax, assuming $30 price).

    I am going back and forth right now about my Alloy Hemberger 4 pack – keep it for the one car? Makes me go back and consider why I have Denise Beam, there are so many other cars that look better now…..that exclusive is less desireable than others.
