Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Time Travel Mater Beginnings – Stanley & Lizzie’s Wedding Day

“John H.” sends along great photos of his open set.

The newest Mater Tall Tales Toons Box Sets are only available at the Disney Theme Parks …

The nice thing about this set is they are NOT sepia colored – nice to see all the colors on Stanley.

The back … Wedding Day Lizzie is the “China” version of Lizzie’s mold (with the slightly larger front license plate area) – the Thailand Lizzie is on the left.*

Veil – plastic – glued down.

Still – very nicely done. Newer sharper mold – the first China Lizzie’s mold was softer.

Repeated from yesterday’s post on the other box set but in case you missed – Yes, it’s 1:55 in scale. Yes, it’s from Mattel – special order by the Disney Theme Parks group.

And if that’s not about to convince you, the bottom of the box has the Mattel logo.

Thanks for the great pics, “John H!”

As for ordering them, they are available at the Theme Parks (including the stores outside the park) – the last reports were the stores outside & inside the parks had enough on hand and that more trucks were coming. Those who wish to place their own orders can call the 800-number, 1-877-560-6477 – their stock situation no doubt changes from day to day. Good luck! They do accept international orders!

People have asked how limited are these?

Of course, that’s hard to say. While these are “1st Anniversary CARS Land Box” sets so in theory, after a few more months, maybe they think it’s past due and drop this set. Or they simply delete the snipe in the second printing of the outside box paper tab – a very easy change as nothing else on this set ties this into CARS Land’s 1st Anniversary. I’m sure it’ll be available through the summer and most likely through this Christmas season – after that? Maybe not but there are theme park items that are still available years later – the Disney Theme Park items are priced that they’re not really afraid of losing money on them and they are not very quick to discount them … :-)

The big question is whether based on the sales after the first few weeks, they place a re-order or already had one planned … a re-order will take a minimum of 3-4 months if it was NOT already planned.

Generally exclusives are granted a one-year timetable so my guess would be that the Disney Theme Park group planned for sales to last until next spring so they already booked production for re-orders … the only question is whether they change the printed snipe which ultimately means nothing as no one will NOT buy one simply because in Spring of 2014, it’s approaching the 2ND ANNIVERSARY, right? :-) Unless your kid is a mini Shelly Cooper. :-)

    Just found these at Once Apon a Toy at the Downtown Disney Marketplace in Orlando. Looked like they had 3 left. And a few of the 3 pack with Mater, Lightning, and Stanley.

    so how do you get one of these cool sets? Can you order them?
    Will they ship them?

    Thanks so much for the help!

    (MET: You can try the 800 number if you’re in the US, or post your needs in our forum).

    The two Stanley have different license plate numbers. Is one of them an error?

    • John says:

      A number of years pass between Stanley’s discovery of Radiator Springs and his marriage to Lizzie,. Maybe Carburetor County began issuing new plates with the letter after the number? ;-)

      • quercy says:

        I tought the license plate sticker was just flipped down since the number is reversed from 5101 to 1015 but the letters are both on the left hand side ! … You guys have noticed the Sepia version have more bottom teeth than the younger version ? I tought it was the opposite… unless the “ye olde” Stanley has a denture… :-)

    Sche-oot! Just called the 800 number. “Stopped taking orders on Monday. There will not be a restock on this item. Sorry.” At least you can get the Tall Tail on iTunes for $2.99 HD, $1.99 SD.
