Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Kmart CARS Collector CASE K UPDATE #3 – MORE PRE-SALE COMING!!



June 4, 2009 9:45 AM PDT UPDATE

600 more cases are on their way to Kmart.com’s warehouse!! Just got the news – CONFIRMED!

So SOLD OUT for now but check back … NascarBroncosFan got word from a customer service rep that they show they are coming in today to Kmart’s warehouse. Whatever their internal processes are so that they show up and available to order are another question – it’s it’s quick – maybe it shows up early tomorrow morning (like last time) or maybe it might take another day but it should be very soon. Last time it went on sale a little after 5:30 AM EDT (2:30 AM PDT) so it would not be surprising if that happened again.


It’s ..



The Kmart Collectors Day cases are now available to order.

Click on the graphic or the link to go to Kmart.com.


If you click on the link, you get this page below – which is definitely weird – major web stores will list something as SOLD OUT or CHECK BACK but to delete the page, that’s weird so maybe they are going to re-load it elsewhere? Or put up a new URL? Don’t know. For now, we’ll have to guess it’ll be the same url as before but until something goes back up? …


Price by the way is the same for a case from last year – shipping is probably $7 per case but there is an offer of free shipping for purchases over $75 but no additional info or code required (it seems) s0 it should show up automatically when you buy some Martha Stewart dinner gongs and a case of CARS. πŸ™‚


Now for a limited time only, you can purchase all of the actual Kmart Collector Store Event vehicles on Kmart.com. We are offering a limited supply of the Cars Character Cars cases (18 per case) packed especially for this event online! Better grab ’em while you can as these cases will disappear fast! These cartons will feature a unique mix of Cars Character Cars and will feature Kmart Exclusive Cars Racers Vehicles with Real Rubber Tires including: #33 Mood Springs, #35 Shifty Drug, #90 Bumper Save, #79 Retread, #51 Easy Idel, #123 No Stall, #117 Lit Torquey, #121 Clutch Aid, #4 Tow Cap and other highly collectible Pixar Cars Character cars as well.

They only ship to US plus US territories. Plus tax but you’d pay that anyway … except for states with no sales tax, of course.

And great news – available for GIFT WRAP so if you want to be 7-years old and celebrate the year end holidays in June … πŸ™‚

Some people have asked why are they doing this?

Because they love you with all the hearts?

Okay, a more realistic answer?

Why not?

They get to sell you a full case at full retail – saves them a lot of work.

And they probably noticed that in some cities & stores, they simply had too many cases for too few customers and those stores had to mail them back to the fulfillment center (save 1 case) to resell online after the event. So, this way, they can ship less to their stores and more directly saving and making them more money.

So, now – when will pre-sales be “up?” Last time, the “email me” feature was up for about a week before the CARS were available to order so check back … don’t fall asleep on us, soldier!


When will they start shipping? They seem to offer shipping info that it will arrive as soon as June 4th indicating it will ship out today but elsewhere says it won’t ship until June 20 … so I guess for those who ponied up for overnight, we’ll know in a couple days πŸ™‚


Post with rest of details HERE.

Thanks NascarBroncosFan-Kevin for your non-shut eye for 72 hours? 96 hours? 120 hours?Β  … and for being the lonely sentry at Kmart Hill. We salute you!


So how many did you buy?

As a CONFIRMATION of your order, you should receive an email that looks something like this (with your info, of course πŸ™‚ ).


You should be fine if you received this email. But if you typed your email address incorrectly or you thought it be funny to give out a fake email address :-/ … you can always check on ORDER STATUS of order by going to the top right hand side of the front page at Kmart.com and type in the email address you listed and your order number.

Or as NascarBroncosFan did on one order, he received this email (with personal info removed) – clearly the order was canceled.

Dear Kmart.com Customer, Thank you for shopping at Kmart.com. Unfortunately, demand for the item(s) that you ordered was so great; we do not have any more in stock. Consequently, we are not charging your credit card and canceling the order for the following item(s):Shipping Address:

UPDATE -SOLD OUT (for now?)

How many cases did they pre-sell – a thousand or two?

According to NascarBroncosFan, it went up at 2:28 AM PST (5:28 AM EAST) – and a sellout at 7:30 AM PST (10:30 AM EST?)? What’s the earliest attempt to order and you were turned away? Time and your time zone?

As Jericho1 points out, no email from Kmart.com – never received mine – anyone else? Last time, the email notification system seemed to have worked.

  • spartacus says:

    Has anyone gotten their cases from the June 5th order date yet? My order status still says “processing”. Any idea what is going on?

  • rumbler74 says:

    For the sake of argument:

    Expected individual sales price of KMART DAYS II CARS based on last years aftermarket conditions (consider this years as well, which are higher)and current market conditions of new CARS as a whole:

    Racers with Synthetic Rubber Tires (minimum price, not to exceed $25.00 dls).
    Bumper Save $9.99
    Clutch Aid $14.99
    Easy Idle $14.99
    Lil’ Torquey Pistons $14.99
    Mood Springs $9.99
    No Stall $9.99
    Retread $14.99
    Shifty Drug $9.99
    Tow Cap $9.99

    New Debuts:
    Mini (Mrs. Van) $6.99
    Vitoline Pitty $6.99

    Mario Andretti (Red Rims) $9.99

    Fairly New:
    Patty: $4.99
    Todd, Pizza Planet Truck: $4.99

    Expected to be the regular classic:
    Lightning McQueen: $2.99

    Buying this whole set individually would cost you: $146.85
    The case has 2 of each: Bumper Save, Mood Springs, and Shifty Drug, a $29.97 dollar aftermarket value for the extras. (All of this excluding shipping of course.) So we have here a total of $176.82.

    Question: How much should a sealed CASE K be worth in the aftermarket?

  • Steve AKA: Poppa says:

    Success! Now to find my old Wal*Mart receipts to return some of the Cars that will be duplicated! Rest will be garaged sales this summer! We got free shipping by ordering some other items to push it over the requirement-Bird Seed anyone?? πŸ™‚

  • spartacus says:

    Where is everybody?

  • spartacus says:

    So who got what? I got my 2 cases! But I would not care to go through this again anytime soon! I feel like I just gave birth!

  • spartacus says:

    Well, I see we are back in business! So who got how many cases?

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.

  • Bombero1956 says:

    I never got an email notification this time either. This is 2 times I have missed out on the event case. I spoke to a customer service rep who basically said the same things I saw here. So did anyone score a case or was it a waste of time.

    (MET: Go to front page of T5 πŸ™‚ ).

  • John in Missouri says:

    I am waiting for the in-store event on June 20, but I had some fun with a know-nothing Personal Shopper today at Kmart.com:

    Victor L.: Welcome to our Personal Shopper Service. My name is Victor L.. How may I assist you?

    you : Hi Victor, I am just checking in to see if there will be another Disney Collector Cars presale today?

    Victor L.: As your Personal Shopper, I will be happy to help you out with that for you. Our goal is to be the one-stop solution for all your needs. Where did you hear this at?

    you : I saw it was coming soon, and I signed up to be notified by email, but a friend told me it already sold out yesterday. I never got notified by email.

    Victor L.: To be honest there is no Disney Collector Cars sale of any kind. If you signed up for that email, then you should receive an email a day before the sale will begin. I do apologize for any inconvenience. Are there any other questions I can help you with today?

    you : It took place yesterday morning on Kmart.com.

    you : I signed up for the email alert earlier this week, but was notified when this event would take place.

    Victor L.: They are going to be on sale on June 20, 2009. If there is a pre-sale you should receive an email regarding that. I apologize for any inconvenience.

    Victor L.: Are there any other questions I can help you with today?

    you : No, thank you. I am very dissatisfied with Kmart.com.

    Victor L.: I apologize you feel that way. At the end of this chat you may receive a Customer Survey. We welcome you to share your feedback about your experience. Thank you for choosing Personal Shopper today.

    Victor L.: You could express how you feel in the survey. I apologize for any inconvenience and I am sorry you feel like that about Kmart.

    Victor L.: Good-bye, and have a great day!

    • Shelby says:

      They have no clue what they are talking about! First there is no such thing as the Cars sales event. Then they just ignore the fact that they said the wrong thing and gave out misinformation. Then they don’t even respond to the fact that NOBODY received the email notification they signed up for. What a joke!

      Any bozo could be a Kmart personal shopper – I think I will be one for tonight. Does anyone have any questions for me….

      (MET: Funny you should mention ‘questions’ SEE NEW POST πŸ˜‰ ).

  • BrianD says:

    Did anyone select overnight or two day shipping?

    If you picked overnight – did you get yours?

    I selected standard shipping, due after June 8, 2009. Anyone received an email confirming a shipped status?

  • carsaholicgirl says:

    Thank you so much for all the info.

  • mpcarsaholic says:

    does anyone know if the preorder will show with the picture of the item before they actually go on sale? I can then atleast save that page to my favs.

  • EM says:

    Since this appears to be the only thread people are watching at the moment…

    Can someone remind me which case the Dinoco Showgirls are supposed to be in? I have found both the Chick Hicks Fans and Spare Mint Racing packs, but no Dinoco Showgirls. I thought that the Chick Fans were case E and Spare Mint was case D and both of those had Dinoco Showgirls in them. Did I miss an update?


  • Nascarfan says:

    Kmart Day RESET List:

    Kmart has NOT reset its sale on disney cars collector 18 pack.

    But important news: You on this list get notifed FIRST as promised of the information below:

    I had a kmart.com phone call just a few minutes ago.

    customer service supervisor told me that since the one order was placed less than 1 minute with another order (i had several windows open to hit comfirm purchase TOO FAST for each other window) ONE was canceled….flagged it as a possible duplicate charge.

    I asked to replace this order and told her that I know that more are coming can you place the order now?, No she says, BUT I can check on when the restock will be in the warehouse……

    So she told me that New re-stock was going to be in by Tommorrow morning, and after asking her what time, she said probably 6am, I asked what time zone she said I do not know which time zone they are in.

    Again, as promised you on this list hear it first.

    I have copied some overseas buyers and my USA wakeup call people on this 10 minutes ago FIRST. If you are NOT USA 50 states and have NOT paid and want your order, please contact me asap as I am here for the second coming of the 600 (sounds like Charge of the Light Brigade huh?)


    • samurai60 says:

      You the man!

    • Nascarfan says:

      I was told that Kmart.com marketing reps ARE watching this site and i am pretty sure they reconized my email address when I chatted about my canceled order.

      What do wanna bet they offer more Kmart cases?…maybe.

      I bet Matty.com people wish they had this reaction.

      ( I am laid off Mattel-Matty.com. Hire me) See what you could get for free? bet you could get more if you had an actual person running it.

  • joel5bass says:

    Didn’t know where to put this post so if it’s in the wrong place; sorry!!

  • handoe213 says:

  • Chris says:

      • Micky says:

  • stephen farrar says:

    is there going to be a list of particapating stores for this event?

    if so , where can i see it?

    (MET: See first post – last link above).

  • Lorri says:

    did anyone answer the question about whether McQueen has rubber tires or not?

  • Matt says:

    Has anyone who paid for overnight shipping received their cases yet? If so, then the others should be on the way. I am curious as to when we will actually get our cars.

    • Nascarfan says:

      Matt and others that paid for Overnight or expedited / faster shipping:

      IF your credit / debit cards have been charged, YOU WILL be getting them. If No charges appear they have NOT shipped yet.

      • Nascarfan says:

        A D/P Collector wrote me to post this for everyone who had FAST SHIPPING:

        Hi Kevin

        I got my cases today, km sent me an email that I had them in my cart
        and if I would like them, Of course YEA

        Have people check there carts, if there in there, they will get them

    • John in Missouri says:

      Weren’t these pre-orders? Are they really arriving before the June 20th Cars Day itself???

  • John in Missouri says:

  • Albert Hinkey says:

    110 Pacific, 310 Central

    Site still down. Watch it pop back up when you least expect it with the pre order back on. See….they get you to let your guard down then BAM!!! Brilliant strategy. Make it as hard as possible to let people give you their money. I feel like I should have taken better notes in business school.

  • 5oclockshadow says:

    I keep getting from kmart customer service, don’t know when or if well have anymore. Thank the lord for take five a day. Any help would be much appreciated!! Thanks! oh by the way I did not get an email either.

  • Jinzo says:

    ***damn Kmart! No email or nothing…. :-/

  • mike says:

    Hopefully Kmart will learn from this… they tried to limit three cases per person but they do not say anywhere on the page that three was the maximum you could order. Kmart also had the problem of posting it during a free shipping promo… great for customers dumb for them. They also did not anticipate the power of collectors with coupons. I am sure if they have another event it will be processed differently.

  • Nascarfan says:

    hey, this reset of 600 more cases… did we recruit the Hong Kong Couple to help out? giggle

  • Mara says:

    Here is the email I got from Kmart after I thanked them for not emailing me:
    Dear Mara,

    Thank you for contacting kmart.com.

    We appreciate your interest in the Disney Cars Collection Set and apologize you missed the presale. This item is a very popular item and there was only a limited amount of orders that could be placed for presale. The item will need to be ordered on or after 6/20/09. You will need to keep checking on kmart.com to place the order once it comes that time. If you have any other questions, concerns or comments, please feel free to contact Kmart.com at the telephone number listed below or email.

    • Jeanne and Aaron from Joplin Missouri says:

      see!! exactly, they dont say anything about the email at all, and completly avoid your question.. .i posted earlier my husband called in to see what they would say and they couldnt/ didnt respond to anything he said about the email.. so i think they are right maybe it is just because it doesnt come out until the case is physically on hand to sell, not including presales? i dont know but its aggravating thats for sure. πŸ™‚

    • Lorri says:

      so to me that makes it sound like the pre-sell isnt until the 20th or after. Not really a pre-sell then, eh?

    BTW, now that we fortified our spam filter with more rocks and duct tape … if you try to rapid fire post, the filter thinks you’re trying to spam us versus being a helpful CARS commentator (though hopped up on caffeine, licorice and CARS fruit snacks) so you might need to wait :30 seconds or a minute between posts, I know that sounds crazy …

    Looking for a US board member willing to buy an extra case for a collector in the UK. Happy to tranfer funds via Paypal as soon as required or happy to part trade – have several 4WD’s available.

    Will be in Florida early July so possibly ship within US to keep costs down.



    PS looking for Wally to trade for 4wd

  • Albert Hinkey says:

    Met, are these cases intended for the post sale? Or will these also be presale quantities? And did your source give a time frame?

    (MET: They are leaving Mattel’s warehouse as we speak to Kmart’s warehouse – not sure how far it’s going but sholdn’t take more than 2-3 days … my guess is Kmart wants to make sure it’s in their warehouse and inventoried before selling? So, yep, more burning the past midnight-closer to 2AM oil … you are still using whale blubber or kerosene? πŸ˜† ).

  • CaptainChunk says:

    Excellent news on the extra cases becoming available. I guess I’ll be checking Kmart.com bright and early for the next few mornings.

  • A Screamin What? says:

    Anybody in take5 land have an extra case or two? Missed it all, like so many different cars in Arizona right now. I don;t even have a Todd yet….

    600 more cases are on their way to Kmart.com’s warehouse!!

    Just got the news – CONFIRMED!
    I just hope there are some left for the stores on June 20th!!

  • neon2102 says:

    If anyone has an extra case to sell, please let me know. Please contact me at c.pershing@sbcglobal.net

    Thanks in advance


    • John in Missouri says:

      You realize you’ll be paying twice for shipping & PayPal? Is there not a Kmart near you for the June 20th event?

      • neon2102 says:

        yes, there is but I have my cousin’s graduation party to go to that day. I’m was hoping to to make it to Kmart, but I don’t think I will.

        Though with the news of more cases comign to k-mart.com, I may still have a chance at getting one.

    190 comments that fast!>?

  • Sad_In_Detroit says:

    I was one of the unlucky ones this morning with the whole order cancellation thing, and I will be out of town on business during the K-Mart Cars day.

    If anyone has, and is willing to sell me one (1) case, please drop me an email to Sean.Jeric@arcadis-us.com

    Thank you in advance!

  • BMW says:

    Met, the sellout was earlier than you posted in the blog. It quit working around 9:00 AM CDT, 8:00 MDT, 7: PDT for me. Kevin alerted at 4:40 AM CDT (5:40 Eastern). Quick work Kevin!

    • HolyGeekboy says:

      Uh oh. I have a confirmation from 8:47am. No cancellation yet. Kmart.com showing order still active. Here’s hoping I get my one box. πŸ™

  • mpcarsaholic says:

    I missed out. If anyone would like to help out a CARS enthusiast I would be willing to pay extra to get my hands on 2 cases (1 for son to open, 1 to relive his youth by opening when he’s 35) unless I have another chance to buy again online. Please contact me. Thanks and congrats to the lucky!

  • DaddyO says:

    Somebody must have sent them a picture of you…it wasn’t me, I swear!

    • PirateDad says:

      BOY am I ever feeling the love !!! I am laffing my bumper off right now and PirateSon is giving me the “what is wrong with you look?” but you replies have been HILARIOUS!!!

      • DaddyO says:

        I’m sorry to take unfair advantage of a situation that is obviously not too funny to you, but I just can’t help myself…it’s like scratching an itch πŸ˜‰

      • Matt says:

        That really sucks PD…. I think the big question is, had you gotten the confirmation email first, and then the cancellation one, or just the cancellation one…. If you got confirmed first, then I think we will all be on pins and needles.

        BTW – my favorite comment from Daddy O is the Main Coon Cat name and that in iteself being cabable of killing someone. Although I do agree that it appears to be the intent of the cat to kill poor old Fiddleheads.

        (MET: I think if you only got the confirmation email, you are good to go by now).

  • PirateDad says:

    Just got this…

    It is because I am Canadian and they found out right??!?! WTH!?!?!

  • I’m happy to hear most of you guys were able to order cases and hope the folks who couldn’t will get another chance to. πŸ™‚

    The weird thing about this whole Kmart Cars case ordering thing for me was that I was waking up at 5am eastern time without an alarm clock for the past several days. Now I NEVER do that…I tend to sleep until at least 6-6:30am. Last night I brought my laptop into the bedroom so I could check Kmart.com during the night. I get woken up several times a night by my Maine Coon Cat who likes to lay down across my throat to sleep. At 11 weeks old she’s no light weight so needless to say I wake up gasping for air! I seriously think she’s trying to kill me. Anyway…last night she slept at the end of the bed and I ended up sleeping thru the night. My eyes popped open at 5am and in a panic I checked Kmart.com. I was sure I had missed ordering the case. Boy… was I relieved when I didn’t see that “add to cart” button. Tried to go back to sleep. No dice. Got up, made coffee and refreshed the Kmart.com page every 30 minutes or so. Around 6:15am I saw that the cases were available for pre-order. My hands were shaking as I went thru the process of placing my orders. I thought I was going to be waiting ages for pages to load because of customer traffic but it was all smooth sailing. I didn’t catch the $25 off coupon but I did get $5 off plus free ship. I think I might have done my ordering a$$backwards but I registered with Kmart.com using three different email addresses. I got three of those $5 off offers. I used all three be placing three separate orders. Got confirmation about 5 minutes later for my orders. I really hope they aren’t canceled…as well as anyone else’s orders. What a let down that would be.

    I still plan on taking my son to the KM Cars event. We go to all the Hot Wheels events and went to last year’s Cars event. He had so much fun! Not sure if they will get as many Cars cases this year as they did last year but since I have already pre-ordered the cases I won’t have to worry about that. It will be fun just to go to the event with my son and meet other collectors. πŸ™‚

    • DaddyO says:

      Anything with the name “Maine Coon Cat” has to be capable of killing you…I don’t even need to see what it looks like…

      • πŸ˜€

        Actually Maine Coon Cats are very sweet. They get HUGE though. They can reach up to 20-30 lbs in weight. If Marnie gets to be that heavy she is banned from sleeping on the bed! I don’t want anyone reading about me in the obituaries…”Maine Woman Dies, Smothered to Death by Cat”. πŸ˜‰

        (MET: You sure Maine is not an island? – you have a lot of funny critters and plants there πŸ™‚ ).

    • mike says:

      the paragraph above is the same story for me…. when I was entering my credit card number I felt like if I did not do it fast enough I would miss out.

  • Uncle Skippy says:

    Glad I got in to presell the case… Last year was a fiasco…

    Arrived just before 11am with my 4 year old (who was in a cast having broken his arm the week prior)

    3 count ’em 3 people were already in line holding all 6 cases that were made available to this store…

    I actually asked all of them if they would be kind enough to give 1 of each of the new cars to my 4 year old…

    Not ONE would offer anything. The manager of the store clearly had no intention of doing this offer correctly and just shrugged his shoulders saying he could not do anything about it… HOW ‘BOUT stopping these people from buying ALL of them!?!?! They were still in line!!!

    Going to go to this store again this year to see what happens…

    • DaddyO says:

      That has to be the saddest Cars story I’ve ever heard. Should’ve gottemn your son to knock someone out with his cast…he would only have been tried as a minor and at most gotten six months probation…easy time. And of course his record would get expunged when he becomes 18.

      I’m the type of person who holds a grudge, so if I were you I would make sure I was first in line this year and buy all the cases and wait for the same three people to show up so you can show them what revenge is. Of course if those three people bought their cases online today and don’t show, all of your efforts will be for naught, but hey, you can always return the cases…

      • HolyGeekboy says:

        It was really miserable that scalpers wouldn’t share Cars with a 4 year old kid, but encouraging your child to assault strangers over such a minor slight would be much more trashy.

        Good luck at this event, UncleSkippy! Hope the scalpers have developed a conscience in the interim…

    • John in Missouri says:

      Sheesh, even if you had asked me in the parking lot for a spare set, I probably would have GIVEN them to you that day! I cannot believe how unhuman some of us are!

      • Uncle Skippy says:

        I know… it was LONG ride back to my house that day… Luckily I had some other items in the house to appease him…

        But he never forgets those Cars from that day… I had shown him pictures.

        I was able to get them some months later and it made a HUGE hit at his birthday recently. I wish I got his comments on tape… “remember Uncle Skippy… last year… those people were mean to me…”

        In the end he got what he needed Carswise and I didn’t loose my shirt to get them… and hopefully Mickey learned to be kind to people in the process!

        (MET: Glad it ended well … but that day, just too sad πŸ™ …).

    • mike says:

      damn… I would have offered them to your kid… wow some people

  • Nicole H says:

    I never got an email saying they were available! And I put in 3 different email addresses!!

  • swb says:

    glad i missed out on the pre sale now i can just go to the store and buy the cars i want.NNOOOO JUNK!!

    • LiamsMom says:

      That’s what I’m telling myself too. πŸ™‚

    • rumbler74 says:

      JUNK??? just 1 mcqueen, the rest are all pretty much new or exclusive. there is no junk here in this case assortment. hence the success of the CASE presale. now you can go to the store and HOPE to buy the cars that you want. whatever cars you may need after the event, i am sure many of the fine folks around here will hook you up.

      • PirateDad says:

        I agree…even if Rubber Wheels are just a gimmick, it does make them collectable and different…AND if MQ has them too…no JUNK at all!

      • John in Missouri says:

        Lightning McQueen (no Rubber Tires)
        Mario Andretti
        Middle of the Road
        Lightning McQueen (with Rubber Tires)
        Bumper Save
        No Stall
        Shifty Drug
        Tow Cap
        Never Seen in the Wild in These Here Parts
        Vitoline Pitty
        Clutch Aid
        Easy Idle
        Lil’ Torquey Pistons
        Mood Springs
        So you see, I really just need 7 of the 18.

        (MET: On the 20th, you should set up a table by the CARS line and take a Craftsman hammer and smash 11 of the CARS … and shout, “Damn, these are good hammers … John … SMASH! You got anything else you want me to hammer?” Be sure and film it for YouTube … and if they try to arrest you, just yell – Fukudomo to you!” πŸ™‚ ).

        • PirateDad says:

          Okay, I will give you Mario…but if he has Red Rims…then he is NEW…and since I don’t have Todd or Patti, they are NEW to me…now Bumper Save and the other racers are pushing it with their rubbers, but they are grooved for your pleasure!!

        • rumbler74 says:

          don’t you think the rest that you dont want or need would be great trading value for future releases, like..well current salutin sarge. gotta look at the big picture…not just immediate needs..but future..get extras if you can because one mans junk is another man’s treasure. dont you think if i had an extra..say transberry juice or view zeen..that i could trade it right now for a chase salutin sarge?

  • handoe213 says:

    I missed out on the kmart pre sale. Does anyone know if any of the kmarts in the southern california are having kmart days ive been to a few and they dont seem to know what im talking about. Thanks guys.

    (MET: Still too early but we should see a mention in the Sunday circular that goes on June 14, 2009 AND you should see a poster by the 16th).

  • JohnS says:

    Does anyone know if the cases will be available on Kmart.com on June 20th? How did it work on the last Kmart day?

    (MET: Last time, they went on sale a week after … presumably what was left over .. it remains to be seen what will be left over after this pre-sale this time … and on the other hand, how many people here will NOT be going to the stores on the 20th?)

  • DaddyO says:

    Is it too much to hope that someone at Mattel will take notice of the success of this offering and realize what factors contributed to its success (i.e., reasonable case assortment, price and convenient method of purchase)?

    Also, I’m sure this question was probably asked and answered someplace where I missed it, but does anyone know if McQueen will be wearing a rubber…er…I mean have the rubber tires?

    • Matt says:

      I agree Daddy O, I mean, except for the last cars day, which was nice, and the first ever desert back case of cars, have you ever seen such an assortment. Can you say Jackpot!!!

    • Lorri says:

      Maybe he will be called Protection McQueen

    • DaddyO says:

      Martin, I hadn’t read your post above until now. So someone at Mattel has made a note of the success of this offering… If I was the CEO and found out that whoever was in charge of Cars sales didn’t try to make 10 more successful offerings like this one before year-end, I would fire them, and then I would tar and feather them.

      In fact, maybe I will go to the next shareholders meeting and bring this issue up…although I might have to wait a bit since the last one was just in May I believe.

  • acuransx says:

    Ladies & Gentlecars,

    Just heard from my Marketing counterpart that this prebuy K-Mart online offering sold out in one day! Wow, the power of Mattel/Disney/Pixar Racers with Real Rubber Tires!

    Sure wish Matty was here πŸ™‚ Imagine these in a display case available to ship Internationally……….. Yuppers, let’s see what happens with our ’10 SDCC Rescue Mater offering on Matty. Another sell out meltdown?

    Lucy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jeanne and Aaron from Joplin Missouri says:

    question: we didnt get to go to the first kmart day last year because we were on vacation in disney.. soo this year i am curious what time should we get there? because i just called the 2 kmarts that are closest to us and they said they dont start it until 10am? is that true since they open at 8?

    • John in Missouri says:

      They open at 8:00am, but the event should take place at 11:00am.

      • Jeanne and Aaron from Joplin Missouri says:

        lol so should we be there at 8 hah πŸ™‚

        (MET: Keep in mind, you draw numbers so you could show up at 10:58 and draw #1 or you could be there at 8:01 and draw #20 … not saying you shouldn’t get there a little before 11 AM but it all depends on the # of cases and the # of other people at that store).

  • Unclean says:

    If anyone gets an extra case they are willing to post to the UK, I would be delighted. We will never get to see these over here.

    We have only just got the haulers!

    Thanks and keep up the good work.

  • bravo1616 says:

    Anyone have an extra case?

  • Cyclops says:

    I’m in Los Angeles, and if I didn’t work market hours, I don’t think I would have gotten any either. Thank goodness I make it a habit to check takefiveaday before I head to the office at 6am PST. I did order next day shipping, so we’ll see if it gets to me tomorrow.

  • rumbler74 says:

    Free shipping over 75 dls, basically buying at least 2 cases? Did you all notice that Delivery Charges charge? They include the Free shipping charge on the Additional Savings Line, only to add it again on the Delivery Charges line. So you still pay for it. Am I confusing this?

    • rumbler74 says:

      I am confusing it. The Delivery Charges line only mentions basically what you would have paid and it is removed essentially on the Additional Savings line.

  • christine says:

    πŸ™ not fair for people on the west side… i never got a chance to buy it online.

  • matt says:

    This is ridiculous, I got no email, and if anyone has an extra box I will buy it from you. I will be in Florida and out of town, so I will not make it to K mart. This sucks. Please email me at mosalzwi@kent.edu. Thanks

  • Nascarfan says:

    I placed orders about 3:38- 3:40 am mountain time and there were two others mmaybe three others right before me.

  • Jeanne and Aaron from Joplin Missouri says:

    lol so my husband called kmart just to be sneaky hahah and said we didnt get the email and its already sold out just to see if they would do anything.. and they put him through to a supervisor lol and wouldnt let him do anything … so he said ‘i dont want to give my business to kmart if they cant follow through with things they advertise will happen’ haha just to see what she would do and all she said was ‘well thats fine’…. not so nice lol oh well it was worth a shot haha and she didnt say anything about the email whether or not it was or wasnt supposed to be sent out πŸ™‚ of course we are going on june 20 now lol but we will have to watch the site now … 6am central? geeeezz lol i dont get up until 830 and i woke up late sooo darnit lol πŸ™‚

    • Blake from MN says:

      I’m very interested to know how you said this to them because depending on the tone of you, the customer, I may have done the same thing. I work in a call center and no one ever calls to say thank you or good job. And the process of sending an email is 100% automated and it gets old to have to transfer people to supervisors because most know less than the actual employees. LOL and I am sure I make more than my immediate makes.

      • Jeanne and Aaron from Joplin Missouri says:

        i actually work for Disney and get crappy people all the time that yell for supervisors lol we dont even have supervisors the people we transfer to are actual people that are just regular cust service people that actually work in orlando… so no he didnt say it as a jerk he just said it to see where he could get with it.. not sure where you were going with that, but we were just trying to find out why NONE of us got the emails and noone from kmart could even answer that.

        • Jeanne and Aaron from Joplin Missouri says:

          and he didnt ask for a sup πŸ™‚ she just transferred him there.. why?? because she didnt know the answer lol

          • Blake from MN says:

            I am sure they didn’t know the answer. Seems like web centers and store always have two different answers. I wasn’t saying he was a jerk I was just asking LOL πŸ™‚

        • Blake from MN says:

          Supper sad about working for Disney, I have a dream to do that but am second guessing myself after visiting CA. It was a dump and the customer service was horrible there. I would never go back to Disneyland.

  • rumbler74 says:

    i believe the preorder may have gone live around 5:30 am central and may have ended by 9:00 am central, estimated.

    • Josh says:

      Sounds about right. I refreshed my screen around 8:43am central time and it said out of stock.

      • BMW says:

        Actually it went live just before approx 4:40 AM Central CDT. 4:40 AM Central CDT is the exact time stamp on my cell phone when I received the call from NasCarBroncoFans. He was quick on the call. It went dead around 8:50 AM CDT but like Josh said a little earlier (8:43 Central).

        A total of 4 hours to order.

        And when I ordered the first time it would only let you put one case in the preorder.
        I had to order twice to get my two cases. Later on it let you order 3 at a time, but not at 5 am.

  • rumbler74 says:

    i believe the “email me when available” feature is supposed to be sent on june 20th, when they are phsysically and readily available (in physical stock, no preorder) to ship upon ordering. it might not get sent on the 20th because, well, the item sold out via preorder, it will not be readily available anymore by that time. the only way you would get an email notification would be, if by june 20th, they have physical and readily available stock.

  • JohnS says:

    If anyone was able to get an extra case – I would love to buy an extra case for my boys! I am in Canada and sadly cannot make it out on the 20th.

  • Blake from MN says:

    sweet, glad I got mine this morning. I am so happy!

  • DaddyO says:

    Thanks NASCAR and MET!

    Checking this site first thing in the AM paid off. Now I don’t have to run to KMart on 6/21.

    By the way I used the code KMART5OFF50 to get $5 off and went through ebates to get 2% cash back. Total came to $70.21 and I’ll get another whopping $1.40 cash back.

  • CaptainChunk says:

    Well congrats to those of you who were able to get orders pushed through, I can’t believe how poorly KMart has handled this whole thing.

  • Lorri says:

    Wow that was fast – Nascar when did it go live? I think I ordered mine around 6:30 and it would only let me order one at a time. I wonder how many total cases there were? That might have been faster than the MSOS sets sold out!!!!!!

  • Jeanne and Aaron from Joplin Missouri says:

    yah i never got the email either πŸ™

  • Nascarfan says:

    Kmart canceled one of my orders, anyone have extras?

    • Matt says:

      What did they say when they cancelled the order? Did you get an email about it?

      (MET: See second update at bottom of post with example of confirmation and/or cancellation email).

    • iamspeed says:

      It really should have been limited to one per customer, per address.

      Those of us who can’t stay up all night watching for a website link to go “live” can now read things like “I got my 3 cases!” and “Oh no, they canceled 1 of my cases!”

      Plus, I never received the email notice that they were available.

      • Lorri says:

        I dont think anyone got emails. I remember last year, after the event when they sold some online, they had the “email me when available” also and NO email then either.

        • Nascarfan says:

          I didnt get an email either. I was devoted to helping EVERYONE and I am sorry that some couldnt get theirs. This wasnt a last minute post. I tried to break the story asap without to much doubt BEFORE shooting my mouth off.

          However, I am concerned that iamspeed is upset with me?

  • HolyGeekboy says:


  • Jericho1 says:

    So apparently, signing up for the e-mail that was supposed to have been sent to notify you when product was avialable was just a waste of time. Classic K-mart.


    • John in Missouri says:


    • Shelby says:

      Yah – I missed it! I can’t believe Kmart didn’t send the email notification. I am so upset!

    • rumbler74 says:

      Even if Kmart had sent the notifications, doubt that it would have made a difference anyways; because if you had time to check your mail for it, you all would have had time to check the kmart website and take5 to know it was up to preorder. The only notification to have signed up for was with NASCARBRONCOSFANS, whom imediately notified MET to post to TAKE5 in time for us all to preorder. The only culprit here was the early time that it went up. Most of us where asleep. You know what they say, you snooze you lose. Hopefully the second round of preorders will be up soon. Just keep checking both kmart and tfad sites or send your info to nascar..he is always glad to help (though he could use some rest). What a dedicated trooper. We owe alot to him. I can’t thank him enough. I think I read here somewhere someone kind of knocking him for ordering too many cases that there were then none left. Remember, all those extra cases are for tfad members nationally and internationally that asked him for help and paid him in advanced so he could have the funds to do it. Not all have paid from what I know so he is financing some still. He is helping everyone out that ASKED for help. He is not making a single cent on this. It is in his pure nature to help.

  • mike says:

    now the item has vanished…….

  • rumbler74 says:

    for those interested in last years kmart exclusive racers. good deals i think.

    eBay link 1

    eBay link 2

  • Nascarfan says:

    NEW NEWS???

    According to sources, on June 20th Kmart.com might be getting more online.

  • Debbie says:

    It won’t even let you click pre-order now. Does anyone think they will let people order again, or is it completely hopeless?

    • 5oclockshadow says:

      I would say very very likely we will see these pop up again.

      And if not, you should find about 2,000 of these on the trading forum πŸ˜‰

  • stephencc says:

    thanks guys:
    got myself 2 cases. didn’t apply for the discount code. But still a great buy since there are no K-mart here in my states….

    thank you again…

  • neon2102 says:

    Hi All,
    First post…but I’ve been lurking for awhile. I missed out on ordering a case of these for me & my son. If anyone ordered an extra case and can help me out, I’d appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance

  • John in Missouri says:

    Great PhotoShopping on the “Up” photo Met!

  • GOMATERGO says:

    It shows out of stock as of just shortly after 10:00 am

  • Jeanne and Aaron from Joplin Missouri says:

    it wont let me order either its saying item not avail, but on the main page it still says preorder do you think its because im trying to order 2 at the same time?

  • L8rM8r says:

    Looks like it was still working for me. I just tried 3 cases and got all the way to PayPal. I did not order them but I think it is still working.

  • 5oclockshadow says:

    Any consolation. The Hot Wheels collector case sold out 3 different times over the course of several weeks.

  • BrianD says:

    I ordered my case and received confirmation. I have not received any shipping info yet.

  • Chris says:


    (MET: The new shorter red card is FERRARI F430 – Mario is only avail in CASE K).

    Looks like they have sold out

    Looks like you guys already bought them all up. That sucks!!!!!!!!!

    • PirateDad says:

      Keep checking…some of us bought cases, then learned about the $25 coupon and had to re buy the cases, but our first cases may not have been cancelled yet…keep checking!

      • carsmama says:

        I tried the first time to buy 2 cases and it gave me that reply. So I thought maybe if I only ordered 1 case, it would work. NOPE! Still didn’t work.
        I’m so bummed. I’ll keep trying though.

      • Lorri says:

        I also got that message the first time, when I tried to order more than one at a time. I used the KMART5OFF50 code which at least got me $5 off. Try again ordering one at a time!!!!

      • 5oclockshadow says:

        How can they just learn about it when I posted the $25 off link several days ago.

        • Josh says:

          I know. I kept that site on my computer for the last 3 days. I just kept refreshing it. It worked . Thanks!!

          too much “fluff” in the posts to find a link… people tend o read the last few posts and not the entire thing.

          I just hope the $25 off coupon does not cause the order(s) to get canceled since it seems the coupon is a erroneous one. (at least in my view)

    • mike says:

      it was a fun 5 hours…. party over

  • mike says:

    maximize your money… use the $25 link above (you need two cases to qualify) and then the 3% cashback at FW

    case comes to a fun $53 per case plus tax (and you get back 3% of the total price) … shipping is free


  • Chris says:

    Thank NascarB. ordered one case and of course my son, wife and I will be at Kmart for the experience and to get another set of racers

  • Seanus says:

    Nascarfan, or anyone else for that matter be willing to send a case Australia bound?
    Email is seanus.ex@gmail.com

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. πŸ™‚

  • DaddyO says:

    Thanks Nascar and Met!

    I bought one case and used a $5.00 off coupon code that worked: KMART5OFF50

    Also, you can get an additional 2% cash back (don’t spend it all in one place) if you go to the KMart site via Ebates.com

    Hopefully this won’t be like the Amazon/Target Hauler presale.

    As I was typing that I bought one case it reminded me of a scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory when the teacher (Mr. Turkentine?) asks Charlie, for purposes of a math exercise, how many wonka bars he opened and Charlie says “one” and the teacher assumes he means 100 but Charlie corrects him and says “not 100, just one” and the teacher gives him a look of utter contempt and disgust and says “what do you mean you only opened one?”…

    I ordered multiple cases… there seemed to be a limit of 3 cases per transaction. Thank you everyone… Now I can just have fun at the event and meet friends from Indianapolis after… it will be nice not to worry about getting the Cars at the event.

    Kevin the CARS MAN!!!!!

  • rpag says:

    i oredered two also. still going to get a few extras of some cars. Thanks nascarbroncosfan for all the detail!

  • unimog says:

    OK. I got my 2 cases ordered. (One for my 6 year old and one for me.) Now, I’m looking forward to September (or is it October) for the next KMart Day. Any word on the cars that will be offered then?

    • rumbler74 says:

      This is what I have heard regarding the 2nd KMART CARS DAYS EVENT this year, KMART CARS DAY III. It will take place on October 17, 2009. The exclusive cars will be, also with Synthetic Rubber Tires and exclusive packaging:

      1. Leak Less (classic)
      2. N2O Cola (debut as a carded single)
      3. Octane Gain (previously released as launcher)
      4. Rev-N-Go (debut as a carded single, most sought after)
      5. Re-Volting (debut as a carded single)
      6. Trunk Fresh (previously released as launcher)
      7. Vinyl Toupee (debut as a carded single)

  • Nascarfan says:

    Let just hope that Kmart doesnt cancel multiple transactions now.

  • mmatthie says:

    Bought 2 more cases…I just had to…besides my buddy’s nephew will love them, along with my kids, oh and my carded “Collection Wall” as well!!!

  • mike says:

    i am going to the event with son… he is too excited not to go. (even though I ordered 2 case)

  • Okie Dave says:

    I’m still going to attempt to go to the event, but this is perfect for me.
    I guess my next online trial by fire will be the Rescue Squad SDCC adventure. I’m guessing it too will be a hurry up & wait deal.

  • jestrjef says:

    Awesome news for everyone! BUY BUY BUY

  • HolyGeekboy says:

    Got a case shipped to cleveland for $69.75 (was $4.95 shipping and I have a $5 off coupon.)

    Retail price is $69.15 after tax, so it’s pretty much a push!

  • L8rM8r says:

    Yeah big thanks to Nascarfan and everyone for the humor and excitement around getting these. I ordered 3 cases. It was too hard not to resist. I am toying with getting more as I am sure there will be people who need them.

    It will be interesting to see if they ship these on tim, but as long as they come I don’t really care if it is before or after the event. I am still planning on going for the experience and I am sure my son will love it.

  • Indykjt says:

    I ordered one, and yes, I still plan on attending the KMart event… so my question to you is…

    If you ordered any cases, will that change your plans for attending the KMart event?

    • PirateDad says:

      Can;t make it this year, so this was a PERFECT alternative!

    • Micky says:

      I’m still going to the event. There are a few I want 2 of so I’ll (hopefully) pick them up at the event. But it’s nice not to have to worry about getting all of them.

    • Indykjt says:

      Oh yeah… I forgot to add a THANK YOU to Nascarfan for looking out for us!

    • Lorri says:

      I want to so my kids can participate, but it is also my daughters sixth birthday. That and a birthday party might be too much in one day (for mom) We’ll see how organized I am that day!!! At least now I have the option of not going.

      (MET: Ask them to hold the party there and shut down the store – or rope off toys for your daughter’s birthday πŸ™‚ ).

      • AidensMom624 says:

        Same here – my son’t 4th birthday is the 24th, the party is the 20th. I am *hoping* I can order a case online, and not have to figure out how I can be there at 11am on the day of his party !!!

  • okie Dave says:

    Thanks for staying on top of this!!
    I just ordered my case which will be fantastic, we have a family trip planned on event day & was trying to figure a way to get these puppies.
    I’ve never posted before, but enjoy keeping up with the sickness here on tfad.
    Hope everyone gets in to add to the their own collection(s).

  • Clipsawd97 says:

    Just ordered mine!!!! Thanks everyone!!!

  • Edge says:

    GOT MINE! If going to Florida for five weeks wasn’t enough to look forward to, I will now have a nice package arriving in the mail when I’m there!

  • Micky says:

    Just want to add my thanks to Nascarfan. What a trooper! Sarge has nothing on you. πŸ˜‰

  • mmatthie says:

      Overseas customers:

      I initally sent out PP invoices a tic light on total amounts. I will review all of them one by one and send out paypal invoices accordingly. Some, not at all since I corrected the amounts after discovering I forgot to add sales tax. (damm squirrels)

      There is two Overseas Customers that have not got back to me and PLEASE HURRY, these will sell out FAST. I did order an extra case or two BUT if you dont pay, someone will.

      Looking forward to hear from you !!

      Again, thanks a lot !!



      • Nascarfan says:

        Wilgert, Kmart.com canceled an order that was for your order.

        I partially refunded you. lets give the checking account a day to rest and I will see to it you get the difference. Lorri has promised to get you one case she has.

        My apologies.

        Anyone have extras so we can get Wilgert his order?
