From the left flank, the Disney Stores strike again …

Wingo & DJ WM
Sure, they’ve been selling their 1:43ish CARS (and the tuners) since 2006 …

Snot Rod & Boost WM

But they’ve taken the logical step … added some lights underneath and a plastic base (top is still diecast metal) …

Either press the button for temp on or slide the button to ON. Lights out fun …

BoostSize comparison to Mattel 1:55? That is only problem with the Disney Store CARS. Good solid detailing and sculpting but not that consistent in size … for instance, Disney Boost is only about 20% larger than Mattel 1:55 CARS but others …

Closer to 30-40% larger …

$14.50 for each set of 2 at Disney Stores and now Disney Store Online HERE & HERE.

Their regular 1:43(ish) CARS are normally $5.50 each so for only a fun dollars more, the light up versions are a great deal and very nicely done.

Guess they save money on the twist ties and plastic tabs … the Mattel ones are heavy gauge while the Disney Store ones are much flimsier and shorter … πŸ™‚

Tabs

Er, collect them all!

Guess we know who will be offering the light up Ghostlight Mater first πŸ™‚
