Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Lenticular 3-Pack With Fred, Marco & Kensington

“Mariela P.” found these a few days ago and sent along these nice pics – thanks. “John in MO” also contributed a pic – thanks!

Seems like they have been found at WM, Target & TRU so happy hunting!

Yes, Fred looks a lot like Fred with Fallen Bumper but there are two crucial cromulant differences.

Fred in the three pack has slightly different eye positions AND he has no stickers …

But you knew that … you spotted that as soon as you passed the Charleston Chew Beef Jerky by register 6 …

So, so, so DIFFERENT – so, collect them all!

And of course, the first “megasize-deluxe” lenticulars …

Marco is the happy go lucky security cop.

Collect them all!

    I feel like I might quit being a Cars collector. Help me MET!

    (MET: Well, if you are looking for LEN 3-packs, that’s a little tougher … for CARS 2 – as for now, TRU may be your only retail option – selection is looking pretty slim at Target, and WM … everyone agree? You might have to start buying cases or team up with someone … ).

  • cooldude9 says:

    Why does everyone hate the Lenticulars?

    (MET: It wasn;t so much the lenticulars themselves but that it meant the regular classic CARS got shuffled off to the sideline when it should have been the other way around).

    Case assortment for this case is terrible. Found 1 in Walmart and another one in Target. It is as follows 2 x Ferrari, Costanzo, Antonio, 2 x Finish Line McQueen, Damaged King, Chick Hicks, 1 x Darrel Cartrip, Bob Cutlass, Race Official Tom and ONLY 1 of the new Richard Clayton Kensington, Fred, and Marco Axelbender. You would think they would have added at least 2 or maybe 3 of this new one. It will be scarce.

    I’m surprised so many people in this thread seem to like the lenticulars. Personally I dislike them simply because they look like garbage to me. Even looking at the top picture in this thread you can see all 4 eyes on each security van.

    Recently I bought my first lenticular, which was McQueen with Rust-Eze can. I just wanted the can and will toss the car. No matter what angle I look at that car from, I can almost always see more than 2 eyes. No thank you. These are just horrible.

    If kids like ’em, that’s fine. I think there’s room for both lines. It’s just frustrating how Mattel likes to release lenticular versions of a lot of cars before the fixed-eyed version. I don’t understand why they do this, other than trying to see which collectors don’t have enough will power to hold out for the fixed-eyed version of the car they want.

    It’s too bad Mattel has done such a poor job with taking this line lenticular. There is no consistency no matter which side of the fence you sit on. Some singles are lenticular, others aren’t. No haulers are. No megasize are… but wait, now they are. Some 3-packs are, but the TRU exclusives aren’t. Launchers aren’t. Casual collectors must be so confused.

  • I would and will buy this set if I see it…. Smiles

    Ladies & Gentle Cars,

    Always fun too see what the take is with the lenticular segment……….I designed/developed this segment & it was a wild ride……….

    Would I have done it different? Wasn’t my call. Some like them, some don’t. Subjectivity. I’ll say no more.

    I do miss you morons 🙂

  • Carlos says:

    Bring on lenticular Toons.

  • morris.w1@sky.com says:

    aww wear did you get it i would love to buy one

  • I might get that thing only for Marco.

  • MrBrownstone says:

    Glad these are finally out on the “streets”

  • NeoSK says:

    pardon me but to me it seems both the security vans are the same?!

    if thats the case my original Kensington will do

    • John in Missouri says:

      One is smiling, the other is not.

      • Jack says:

        Yep just another slight variation to give us more to buy. I know for the next movie they will include a ton of characters to give us many more Cars to buy.
        With only 4 or 5 cases left of the final laps and lenticulars to go it looks like we are getting closer to the end of Cars 1 releases.

  • oliversmom says:

    I got it yesterday, despite of “googly” eyes they are gorgeous.
    it was 10.99 not 14

  • lou says:

    Hey Mattel BREAKING NEWS:


    • Jeaks says:

      Each to their own. I have no problems with Lenticulars and both my sons love the moving eyes.

      We should never assume to speak for others

      • lou says:

        just making a comment that is shared AND voiced by many, if you read at least the comments from the last two posts you will see i am not alone. no one is speaking for others here, just expressing MY opinion, which i assume we are all still free to do.

    • Dunroamin says:

      Totally dig the lenticulars and find them more attractive in the display…why you ask…gives the windshield depth…especially Lightning..but do I care, I collect them all anyways 🙂

    • CaptainChunk says:

      My feelings exactly. This googly eyed nonsense is why my days of collecting these is over. Now I just occasionally buy non-lenticulars for my kids. Even they don’t want the “funny eyed ones”.

      • Carlos says:

        I hate lenticulars too. Look what Mattel did to us, they’re ruining the line this way. I did get Richard at Ross today. I’m waiting on Marco to be a non lenty megasize single.

  • BMW says:

    Another 3 pack with one new car. The TRU cube here is still full of the lenticular 3 packs at 14.99. Checking the cube yesterday, most of the lenticulars were still there. All the new classic eyed cars toons singled were gone except for a few Komodos and Dr Mater Mask up. No Franks left, Marco planes were plentiful. The Deluxe Wrestling Cars had lots of selection.
    Marco security suv with fixed eyes is on ebay, so will wait to get him and not have to rebuy Richard and Fred. 3 for 15 dollars is a nice price if you don’t already have 2 of them.

  • kdthomas says:

    I would have bought it if it was normal-eyed…

  • Hostile Takeover Banker says:

    Awesome find and awesome cars!

  • Kevin W says:

    Met, any hope down the road of the classic eye Kensington and Axelbender? Perhaps a TRU exclusive?

    • BrianD says:

      I was going to ask the same question… any chance of non-lenc Marco?

      • ScoobyDoo says:

        So far all cars have been released in non-lenc fashion. Patience is advised. What baffles me is that Mattel keeps releasing lenticulars. My impression is that no one likes them, or is it just me.

        Met, do you have any sales figures about normal vs. Lenticulars ?

        • John in Missouri says:

          I don’t think my kids have a single Lenticular Car in their toy boxes, but don’t forget that everyday, hundreds of kids across the world are turning 2 and seeing “Cars” for the first time. For the most part, all they know are Lenticulars, and they probably love them as much as my kids loved their Classic-eyed Cars 4 years ago.

    • Daniel says:

      Marco will be coming in mega-size format with non-moving eyes.

  • cac1959 says:

    Looking forward to these as well as the classic eye Deluxe Marco…
