Disney Store Sale: CARS Character Encyclopedia

If you haven’t picked up a copy of this:

Disney Pixar CARS: Character Encyclopedia – $12.95 at the Disney Store.

It sells for $18-$22 elsewhere. I don’t think it’s available in stores – maybe if you have a mega sized Disney Store.

You even get a free diecast, a metallic paint version of “Lightning McQueen with Piston Cup (decal).” (aka: Hudson Hornet Lightning McQueen) + a poster!

It is authored by yours truly so I highly recommend it! 🙂

You can see sample pages here.

So, it does not include every diecast released … unlike say, our checklist magazine that covers everything from 2006-2011. Of course, I also don’t have a world class art director at my disposal and the photos are much larger in the book.

Yes, I’m just about ready to start on CARS: Themes 2013 that covers the last year.

    We found this book at Toys R Us!

    This book is very nice. But I think there are enough new cars to make a new one 🙂

    I’ll admit I did commit a serious crime on this book though. I stripped off the hard covers, and rebound it after trimming the covers to size to match the pages of the book itself. It fits the bookshelf better that way.

    (MET: That’s no crime. It’s only a crime if you leave a bad review … just kidding! 🙂 ).

  • Wraukn says:

    Was there supposed to be a 2nd printing that had a different paint color on the car?

    (MET: That was just my speculation when the metallic McQueen with stickers started turning up – but ultimately, that turned out to be the German promo … so nothing as of now).

    We bought this book about 6 months ago (here in Sydney Australia) and it’s a fantastic book. Our little guy was even happy to have it as his bedtime story book on a few occasion by just going through the characters.

    I think it cost us $25AUD, buy everything in Australia is a touch more expensive that the US. It has a £15.99 price printed on the back for UK buyers.

    We know it doesn’t cover every variation, but it doesn’t miss much. Well done to the authors Jo Casey and Ken T Chang.

    Along with the Checklists and visual guides, this book is another great reference — and you get a nice LMQ!
