Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Holiday CARS 2010

All signs point to the holiday CARS returning to Target … will they return to other retailers? That’s unknown as of now.

For those who can’t remember back that far, Target got the rounded velcro packaging (much like normal Storytellers) and TRU got the mock snowglobe … of course, Target also got the 5-pack …

Holiday CARS Checklist

Will the Mater Saves Christmas box be back?

Unknown as of now.

Though the Santa CAR will probably only be available at Target …

Santa Reindeer

And I believe there are only 6 Pitty Reindeers and not eight in diecast form though I suppose you buy two and cobble two sets together with a backup Santa.

Santa Rein

And we are getting one more – Guido & Luigi packaged together on one card.


These are part of the EXPANDED UNIVERSE CARS from this book,Β  Mater Saves Christmas – available from Amazon.

    I live in Springfield Missouri and I’ve been searching for the Mater Holiday Box Set (Target Exclusive) since I heard about it back in November when someone posted large photos of each model. Now it’s nearly two weeks till Christmas and nary a sign of this set at any of the three TRU stores in this region. They have never been displayed. All Target has available is the nine car exclusive racing set with the photographer’s. They have these sets literally stacked to the ceiling. They must have at least sixty sets and they are discounting them heavily with few takers. As for the Christmas sets, looks like the Target Grinch stole the Christmas Cars this year in Missouri.

    Hey, I also am disappointed that Mattel has put repeat Xmas cars from last year in both of the new 2010 Xmas sets. What’s with charging us a fortune for duplicates of last years cars, just so we can get a few new ones? I’d gladly pay the price for a full set of brand new versions, but this is just taking advantage of the folks supporting these little cars by buying them for the kids, or by us collector’s. How greedy can Mattel get?? They’re selling millions of these cars. Geez!!!!

    I just left my local Toys R Us with a Mater Saves Christmas Gift Pack for 19.99. It included Santa Car, Whee-Hoo Winter Mater, and Holiday Hotshot Lightning McQueen. It says only at Toys R Us. If anyone would like one contact me at ravenlolo2@Gmail.com.

    the diseny always do the xzmas ones lets hope they get them this year

  • Monica says:

    Can’t wait, I love these so much and am stoked they are doing Santa, the reindeer, Guido and Luigi. I think I will do my Cars Christmas village again this year :).

  • BMW says:

    Any news on Storytellers 3.0? Is Mattel making any new Storytellers from the book.

  • Dinoco-Si says:

    Could this be one of the extra Mater tall tales on the new DVD?? Hope so.

  • lou says:

    anyone else concerned that there isn’t a lot of news about upcoming releases coming out? come on Mattel- where are the rest of the haulers, pit crews, el Materdor cars, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. as usual, we are ready and waiting.

  • Jinzo says:

    I’m so happy with the boxset I got last year @ Target. It was worth $29.99 πŸ˜€ Can’t wait for the new boxset! By the way, are we expected to see the other Storytellers Sets like Mater’s Cousins, Show Stopper Girls, Bubba/Mater… etc? I’m only missing Mater’s Cousins 3-pack? I really hope so πŸ˜€

    (MET: Yea, they should be back. I guess start looking for them in a few weeks? Give a shout out when you see them again).

  • jambouk says:

    Off subject i know but foud the latest FL cars in the UK, disney store. marti matthew ETC.

  • Carlos says:

    Awesome! I can’t wait. When will the new haulers we saw at SDCC come out here in the U.S.?

  • Indykjt says:

    Can. Not. Wait! I am sooo hoping for a box set with the Santa Car and reindeer pitty’s!!! Christmas box set has been a favorite part of my collection!

    • Stig McQueen says:

      The reindeer aren’t pittys; they’re snowmobiles! At least they are in the illustrations; does Mattel plan to use pittys and hope we won’t notice?

      (MET: Apparently … as far as I heard …).

  • John in Missouri says:

    I ran past Target today to see if the Halloween stuff was out yet. It wasn’t, but they had all the tags in place. I didn’t see any Cars items. Met, do you know if their will be anything this year?

  • Stig McQueen says:

    If you think about it, you’re going to need at least 12 “reindeer” for a complete set, anyway. In addition to the 8 “canon” reindeer, there are:

    *Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer;

    *Clarice, his love-interest from the same Rankin-Bass special;

    *Hallmark’s Rodney the Reindeer;

    *Olive, the Other Reindeer.

  • Marni says:

    Are they really making the Santa car? That will make my whole day!!

  • collectormom says:

    I wish this story was part of Mater’s Tall Tales instead of Story Tellers so they would actually make an animated short of this story.

    These are great to have around the house at Christmas. Last year we opened the box set and hid the loose Cars in the presents under the tree. The boys loved finding them. Some new ones for this year would be great

  • uncle skip says:

    Now these I really like…

    Christmas Cars look great on my shelf next to Darth Vader building a big snowball Death Star…

    I even have found the holiday R2, 3PO and Yoda to go with Darth…

    So, obviously I need to add the Dusenberg Santa and company to the Christmas Toy Display!!

    • Stig McQueen says:

      Stig Jr. and I wanted to get the Yoda tree-topper, but Mrs. Stig and Stigette wouldn’t go for it…

      Gonna try and sneak a couple of small AT-AT Walkers into the undertree-world this year instead; they can do battle behind Cinderella’s castle next to Sodor Station beneath the monorail, as LMQ and Doc speed by. (With Aang flying overhead on Appa, of course!)

      Hey, you may only be young once, but you can be immature forever!

      • Uncle Skip says:

        Try telling that to my wife!!! Between the toy shelves I set up at Christmas and the Hallmark Star Wars collection that adorns the tree, I have my hands full with her…

        Doesn’t help that I was able to fill in all my missing ornaments recently… yup… I Collected them ALL!!!

      • por356 says:

        Last year, our Target had Star Wars light strings. Each of the lights was a Star Wars character. I really wanted the R2D2 set but passed because our Christmas tree is only two feet high.

  • buckland-blowouts says:

    Santa Car – Luigi and Guido come second to that for sure!!!

    How’s about Chick hicks with an elf’s hat or something – Maybe mistletoe or something?

  • deal or no cars says:

    of course, Target also got the 5-pack …

    6 PACK .. MET .. 6 Pack it was!

  • Kevin W says:

    I got a second Christmas set (except for Mater of course) at TRU on “After Christmas Clearance” last year! Woohoo! Now on the serious side, gotta have that Santa Car!
