Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: CARS Comes to India


From the Business Standard:

“Leading toy manufacturer, Mattel India has launched the Disney Pixar Cars range for Christmas in India. The Pixar Car range features 14 models based on the characters from the movie like Lightning McQueen, Sally, Mater, the Tow Truck and Doc Hudson amongst others and will be available at a price of Rs 250.”

Welcome India to the CARS Collecting Universe!

I hope your experience is different than collectors in Europe, Australia, Canada & California …

Mainly, that your account at EBay India & PaisaPay is all cleared and set up for action.


(don’t be fooled, PaisaPay is PayPal – nice try, Paypal).

The Top 10 Things Overheard while shopping for Disney CARS in India.

10 ) Why are there 300 Radiator Springs McQueen’s with a sticker that reads KB Toys?

09) I bought that 2 years ago in a Silicon Valley Walmart when it was called Dirt Track McQueen and not this sticker placed over it called RAJ McQUEEN.

08) Damn, 200 Rollin’ Bowlin’ Mater’s on desert back card and not one Lizzie on a Supercharged Card!

07) That fat guy holding EDWIN KRANKS? He was the same guy who beat me to a DALE JR. in Walla, Walla. Those scalpers are EVERYWHERE!

06) What’s Hindi for ‘pegwarmer?’

05) There’s supposed to be a pallet with 300 new singles … you don’t suppose it’s under the giant Indian weaves covering something in the gardening section?

04) This line should be easy to collect, there’s only photos of 6 on the back.

03) What do you mean this is all you got for 6 months? It says COLLECT THEM All in 19 dialects on the back! You canot have received just one box in 6 months?! That’s crazy. Why are there 200 McQueen’s on the shelves? (one continuous rant counts as one one)

02) Curry popsicle? Quite refreshing!

01) सिर्फ शेयर करने के लिए इस तरह से पागल हो यार, कितना मुश्किल यह कुछ कारें खोजने के लिए किया जा सकता है – तुम एक दुकान में जाओ, आप कुछ खरीदना, ये है – मैं यह इस यूरोप, कनाडा, ऑस्ट्रेलिया या अमेरिका – जो कहते हैं में पसंद नहीं है शर्त इस के साथ?

(In other words – Man, how hard can it be to find some CARS – you go in a store, you buy some, that’s just crazy – I’ll bet it isn’t like this in Europe, Canada, Australia or the US – who puts up with this?)

Note, I do not know Hindi so blame Google Translation!

For our Japanese readers:


Remember, at TakeFiveADay.com, we’re always here for 24/7  for CARS related matter (or when the server is down) (or if you live in a country where we’re banned 🙂 ).

More from the article (follow link) but also …

“The company is test marketing the entire range from scaled-down toy vehicles to playsets like the Mountain Challenge Playset and the Radiator Springs Town Playset Assortment.”

So, be sure and send us a pic 🙂

Thanks for the heads up Jeaks … I guess now the Aussie pie of CARS is split again … 🙁
