Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: Barry Diesel Warehouse Find CTC

If you missed out on Barry Diesel in 2011, Children’s Toy Closet was able to uncover some in a warehouse …

More photos in this post.

He’s a BIG BOY – next to the Convoy Brothers … He’s the Andre the Giant of CARS … though he weighs the same as Convoy Brothers G-Man (Barry’s roof is plastic).

Barry & the boys

So, if you missed him before, here’s your second chance.

    Does CTC charge tax for every US State?

  • question:
    does CTC have more than 6 to sell? If so, it is being devious since you have to have had more than one Matty account.
    Why does Matty tolerate this?
    Did CTC find these in their warehouse or a Mattel Digital River ware house?
    I bet no one answers this question…

    (MET: See tomorrow’s post).

    • Blowhard,

      I will answer your questions:

      First of all I don’t have more than one Matty account! I have bought these from Mattel and yes I have had more than 6 to sell and still do. Anyother questions?

      Traver

      • Did you buy them from the mattycollector.com site or some other way from MATTEL?
        If you bought more than 10, how many did you buy?
        Were these in your warehouse before your sale or a MATTEL warehouse?

          This reminds me of people (which is none of their, our YOUR business) how many Convoy sets, Lightning Storm McQueens, Kmart cases, Rescue Mater sets, Tokyo Maters, Ecto-1′s, Monster High dolls, and other SDCC items I bought for others on My Buyers Lists:….

          Do I ask you Blowhard or ALL the other nosy people:

          How much do you make at your job / per hour / weekly / monthly?

          How many hours do you work?

          How do you spend your income on non essential items?

          How many items do you buy for ebay and for what price per month?

          How many ebay items do you sell and for what price per month?

          What are your monthly bills?

          I never release ANY of my info as I do not need “accountants” or people trying to be my mother….

          I am sure that if Traver wanted everyone to be HIS accountant he would hire you…. or post this information publicly.

          You see…. it works both ways.

            Hear, hear. 

            Badger Your Friendly Neighbourhood Toy Seller Day is the first and fifteenth of every third month. Please mark your calendar accordingly, Mr. DanversMABlowhard, and come back to it then if this is still important to you. 

        • Blowhard,

          I don’t hide behind numbers, I bought something like 1600 units! With that said, I have less than 500 left!

          Would you like to know how many of the Super chase case N i have bought as well? Over 700.
          What information are you looking for?

          You can always email me if you would like!

    • NascarFan says:

      In regards to buying more than 6 at a time when these were on Mattycollector:

      You could have bought more than 6, by logging out then logging back in and purchase another 6…. as long as your credit card lasted into it’s limits or your credit card fraud division stopped you from buying.

      I bought several sets of 6 for The Utah Group when they were on mattycollector.

      Last time they were on mattycollector you could have bought 10 pieces a pop – per transaction.

      http://www.mattycollector.com/store/matty/en_US/DisplayProductDetailsPage/ThemeID.1298800/productID.227034300#.Ui0fuDasg4s

      This is still true with most any mattycollector item, even on subscriptions.

      Kmart does the same thing, either limit one per transaction or two or three.

      Disney store does the one per transaction per Designer Collector Series dolls and probably other items.

      Mattel sells toys, period.

  • Wraukn says:

    I generally equate the shipping charge from something with what I would spend on gas, time, dunkin donuts coffee. Two gallons of gas is about $7.00, and how much is an hour of your time worth? $10.00? $20.00? $18.00 for 10 minutes on the computer seems alright to me.

    • John in Missouri says:

      Hmm, well uh, you would have a good point if Barry Diesel could actually be found at retail.

      • Jack says:

        That’s also if you go out for an hour, visit 1 store and buy 1 item. Not a very efficient way to Cars hunt. Most Cars buyers visit more than 1 store, take more than an hour and buy as many good cars as they can find. LOL.

    • Wraukn says:

      If someone were to spend 6 or so hours on a Saturday driving hundreds of miles to hit several stores, I would personally just invest in case buying. You may not get that many sweet new releases but you will now have your entire Saturday to do something else. Like play with cars! Unless you have a hybrid. Then it might be worth it!

      • In my area,my commuting to work area, I have let’s see about 6 targets I could go to.before work. On my day off I have a bunch more in area I like to go to.
        Going all over and finding litttle drains me quickly.
        I don’t like to go anywhere cold…so I do some homework with dcpi and my phone b4 I get there.

  • by the way, that is the cost of the shipping not included are fees, boxes, tape, etc……….

    (MET: And hand inspected and packed by Traver himself! :-) ).

  • Here you go, this is going from me to hollywood, ca. This is just to give you an estimate, more rural areas cost more!!

  • The bizarre thing when Matty sold Barry, it was on the web site far longer than anything else they sell. Most items have sold out in a week or two, even though most observers of Matty know that it was BS marketing strategy. Barry never had to come back cause it sold straight through. Took couple months I recall.

  • BMW says:

    These were $30.00 shipped from Matty. $25.00 plus 5.00 shipping.

    I saw the DC and Ghostbusters at Big Lots. Matty dumped them and sure made a lot of people angry, who vented on Matty Collectors facebook page.

  • MackDaddy says:

    I thought about buying one until I saw the $18.00 UPS shipping charge! :shock:

    • where do you live? you do realize that ups comes with the insurance added in, correct?

      • Jack says:

        Regardless if insurance is included 18.00 to ship is too high. I understand you ship a bunch and you prefer to do everything through UPS but the consumer does get overcharged. You can ship to most places in the US USPS priority with 50.00 worth of insurance for less than half that and to anywherein the US with insurance for much less than 18.00.
        18.00 is just more than people are used to paying for a shippment this size so it does stand out.

        • TopherDawg says:

          I understand what you are saying Jack and I agree, but have you ever tried to process a claim with the USPS vs UPS? From a business standpoint, UPS is the way to go.

          • Jack says:

             You’re entitled to your opinion. However I have shipped many thousands of packages through USPS and had a problem with exactly 2. A 99.99 success rate is good enough for me. Combine that with faster shipment ( happier customers) and a lower cost to ship per unit and from a business standpoint USPS has been far better for me than UPS could ever be, even if the claim response is slower through USPS. Chances are you won’t have to file many if any claims anyway. 

            • John in Missouri says:

              About once a month at work, we order a large box of UPS envelopes from them, and they have successfully crushed every single one of them. They can’t even be nice to THEIR OWN packages!!

              UPS also sent all of my Ivan packages through the grinder — literally!

              On the other hand, I’ve never had a problrm with a package via the Post Office.

            • Jack,

              From a business standpoint, I have never had an issue from ups! Clients can track the package from start to finish, if for some reason there is an issue, no questions asked money returned from both ups and myself. MOST people are honest, however there have been a few bad apples that have ruined it for the bushel when learning the system with usps! I do ship items using the usps system, but any and all shipments will be paid for by check or money order, not through paypal as I have been taken for a number of times. It is not a matter of package being damaged, but more of an honesty issue with people claiming they never received items.

            • MoMcQueen says:

              As a Canadian customer, I can honestly say that I look forward to the service I receive through UPS from Children’s Toy Closet. My parcels are shipped to me at light speed in comparison to USPS Priority Mail… and for less. (The only drawback is the customs charges and brokerage fee which UPS never overlooks but that’s neither here nor there from the shipper’s point of view.)

              Due to the fact my UPS parcels spend a fraction of the time in transit, they arrive at my doorstep in WAY better shape. When it’s postal, I’ve had cases arrive that look literally as if they were run over by the mail truck — twice — but when that case is delivered by UPS it looks as if it sat in someone’s lap wrapped in a blanket the whole way. I’m always really, really happy with the price and service from UPS and Children’s Toy Closet! 

              • Mariela says:

                Not always. Both shippers have their pros and cons.
                UPS is more expensive and faster/secure yet sometimes packages arrived like they were in a war zone (my Ivans for example)
                USPS is almost the same just cheaper! Their only problem is their Firat Class Mail International.

  • Ferris says:

    I saw this on Amazon a few months back for $39.99 with free shipping. I thought about it, but still didn’t want to spend that much for one car.

  • NascarFan says:

    Hopefully some of you will grab these. I sent out a note on my groups last night about it.

  • bobbyjack says:

    If you don’t have this yet, get it. It is awesome. I hope they release Albert Hinkey one day.

  • John in Missouri says:

    Weren’t a bunch of these at the Mattel Store a few months back?
