Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: TRU Green Friday & Sale Friday

First the good news …


The TRU Early Doorbuster sale that runs from Friday afternoon to Saturday morning (minus the hours they are closed) starting tomorrow includes a CARS item …

playset sale

Luigi’s & Ramone’s playsets are $10 off and reduced to $14.99 so if you’ve been holding out … hold out no more … and for those looking for Lizzie Curio’s Shop, you might want to wander by your TRU to check it out. Even though it’s not listed on sale, if TRU actually ordered cases to put out, Lizzie is short packed in some of the cases … you might get lucky.

The ad …

Remember, this sale ends Saturday afternoon!

Well, now for the not so good news …

TRU Green

TRU is getting ready for Green Friday (what they are calling the day after Thanksgiving).

The nutcracker tin soldier looks a little leery …

“Santa’s Little Helper” was kind enough to look in the backroom to give us the scoop … thanks for the nice pics and info.

Boxes pallet
Ohhh, purple banded Mattel boxes that read CARS!

Green Day Box
But the nutcracker dude was right to be a little leery …

It’s not terrible news but it’s also not terribly exciting …

Mack carrying

Rumor is it will be $20 – down from the normal $29.99 …

So, when you are busting down the doors at TRU next Friday morning, as you are grabbing hamsters, remember to shout RED ZHU ZHU Carrying CASE! πŸ™‚

Happy Green Day!

(And come back Monday for the FULL BLACK FRIDAY/GREEN FRIDAY/RED FRIDAY roundup & post).

    I don’t have Luigi’s and ramone’s shops yet.

  • For those who are unaware, TRU is opening at midnight Friday morning and the 1st 100 people in line get a ticket to buy 1 Zhu Zhu Pet Hamster. In addition, TRU will be randomly stocking more Zhu Zhu Pets throughout the day to try to maximize the number of shoppers that will be able to get them, and it’s an attempt to prevent resellers from getting their hands on the furry little critters.

    i don’t have a TRU in my town,just Wal-mart.

    It is funny the TRU nearest to me only seems to have a stock of the Ramone’s House of Body art. I don’t think I have ever seen anything but that and the V8 cafe of course. It would be nice to get the other sets, but I have yet to ever see the Curio shop either.

  • RichardP43 says:

    Just checked out a local TRU and they had Sarge’s Boot Camp also on sale for $24.99. Did not see this announced in the sale flyer but it’s there on the shelf. This is in SoCal – Torrance store. This price might be because there is another special flyer that says if you spend $25 on CARS you can get a free CARS – theme backpack. Hmmm, 24.99 not quite equal to 25.00. Maybe I’m being cynical πŸ™

    No Casa Della Tires in stock either, and I need one!

    It is green friday because the corporations make plenty of green on those days. Some corporation see black friday as having negative impact. exe a black-out. Green friday is a more friendly term.

    Those are awesome prices on the playsets I wish i had time to stop by and look at them .

  • MiaSenorita says:

    Is this thing any fun? We don’t have a TRU so I don’t know anything about this Mack….

    $20 even seems a little steep… especially for Black Friday.

    The deal going on for the playsets seems much better!

    Disney Store has their playsets on sale too.. I think $15-$16 – Mater’s yard and the courthouse are on there I think.

  • jestrjef says:

    I saw these at a TRU stacked on the top of the shelving units Wednesday. I thought they might be for Black Friday. No excitment there …at least not for us!

  • Steve AKA: Poppa says:

    I don’t expect much to happen at any of the big retailers on Black or Green Friday. If you’re a die hard and suffer from CCCD, you already have everything that’s been out for years. The big issue is the lack of fresh inventory/castings. If a retailer doesn’t stock based on demand, then the retailer is not going to blow out toys on Black Friday and lose $$$.

    As to changing from Black Friday to Green Friday, that’s a joke. I’m the primary toy buyer for the family, and, my daughter in law was surprised as to the higher prices this year. Anything made with plastic has gone up appreciably. How can you claim “green” when your product is made from oil? Then, you package it is plastic bubbles. Then, you ship it thousands of miles using oil. The only thing ‘green’ is the card board shipping box.

    My TRU has one of the poorest selection of Cars products. I’m running more and more into McQueen’s again. Target sucks. A retailer with an exclusive line cannot even stock new castings. I have not seen a fresh shipment of Final Laps (case A) since the second shipment sold out a month ago.

  • Nicole H says:

    The price on Mack for “Green Friday” is $19.99. The ad has been on the internet for over a week already. I have seen all the black Friday ads and they are not too excting cars wise.

  • JacobsMom says:

    I saw the tru add yesterday: http://bfads.net/Adscans – go to the bottom and look for tru. The Mac truck carrying case is $19.99, not much else in the way of cars except for the mega blocks sets. But they do open at midnight on Friday with great deals for the little ones! Happy shopping.

  • babychristianscars says:

    I have all those sets, I just need flo’s for a good price. Our walmart never got that one way back in 2006ish and I didn’t know bout take 5 back than.

  • iamspeed says:

    I just left TRU, found a Casa Della Tires, but they also had 3 Curio Shops on the shelf with the sale sign right in front of them, so they’d have a tough time arguing that they’re not included.

  • chuki_mama says:

    Time to visit TRU again… πŸ™‚

  • GMinNJ says:

    At first I was disappointed, but now I’m not. The die-hards who visit this site (like me) won’t have to fight the lunatics on what has turned into an insane day to shop. Did anyone really want to get up at 4 in the morning and get on a line?…

  • Hostile Takeover Banker says:

    black Friday? Green Friday? Thank goodness it’s Friday!
