Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Security! Security!

Making his first “classic-eyes” appearance in the UK …

Marco Axelbender – aka #21

And while he arrived in the US a few months back, not in a lot of shipments …

Richard Clayton Kensington (aka #17) …

Yea, they are pretty much the same ‘cept the eyes & mouth …

Just remember, Marco is the smiling one and Richard is the frowny one.

Thanks for the great pics, “Rippers.”

  • lily says:

    is that true Rippers,you find this first?

  • Jonny2scarves says:

    Rippers, you are always the first guy in the UK to find everything. Are you an inside-man? I never see half the stuff you find, let alone be the first one to find it. Can you share your secrets?! I am in Kent and rarely have much luck finding new stuff.

    I have found mega size Richard Kensington in Ross several times now. It’s weird because he is the only mega size I can find, no others from the case.

  • Rich says:

    I found the Lenticular 3 pack with Richard, Marco and Fred today at Target in Chicago. Finally something. Also found Bert w Camera. I kept missing him.

  • cac1959 says:

    Once again, great find, Rippers!

    I can’t believe how many items are coming out as quickly as they are… I am glad to see friends in the UK and Canada are getting new Cars… it’s about time…

    On another note, I went to 5 Target stores yesterday in southwestern Ohio… At all 5, when I scanned the Team Crew sets (087070418), they came up as NCF… not carry over (discontinued)… 1 store had them in the back stockroom… and brought out another case of HTB/Dinoco/Leakless… I wonder where they’ll be for sale in the US…

  • Roswell says:

    saw him today in Tesco,

    got me confused cus on the packaging he is angry but the die-cast shows him smiling, thought it was an error and they packed the wrong one…

    • Man-I-Fold says:

      good point. It seems that Richard’s expression on the card doesn’t match his die-cast expression, either. Maybe a different team designs the cards vs the actual die casts? Or something. Very glad to see Marco in fixed eyes, and with 3 in each case maybe we’ll have a chance to buy one from a store before the eBayers snatch them up. Cheers, Rippers!

  • jestrjef says:

    Sweet!!! Look forward to seeing him with classic eyes … well … in a box …. from some one else … cuz he will NEVER show up near me. 🙁

    BTW, does anyone know what #15 is on the megasized/deluxe checklist???? THANKS! 🙂

  • Carlos says:

    I know Marco A. is in the U.S. The stores just refuse to bring out shipments. He should be in the U.S. very soon. And, since they’re both in the same case, I think it would be intresting to see Marco in Richard packaging and vice versa. I actually prefer Marco to Bessie. Bessie is ugly, out of scale, and, it’s not a character, just an it. In my numbering, Frank Pinkerton (AKA Pinky) is 19.
    Also, next after Marco is Brian, and after Brian id Chuck “Choke” Cables. Also, I hope the U.S. switches to International packaging. That may mean nnew stuff faster. I think it’s about time everywhere in the world gets all Cars stuff at the same time.

    • I-am-speed says:

      The problem with your idea is that many Cars collectors ONLY want the US card backs, free of multiple languages that detract from the card design.

      I supply US-card backed Cars items to a friend overseas who refuses to buy the International card backs(except for “openers”) because the US-back cards are so much “cleaner”.

      So, there are two sides to collecting US & International versions, based on personal preference.

      Personally, I’d rather wait a little longer for the US version, rather than get the International version sooner and be looking at multiple languages covering up the graphics.

    • cool_john10 says:

      I think so. I live in Puerto Rico (USA Territory) and on Friday I got three Marcos in Walmart.In the back of the card you can see the frase “colect them all” n different languages. Also I have some Van San and Teki and Paki pack that I found in Walmart yesterday.

  • I can’t wait for Marco without dumb eyes to arrive in the US!

  • John in Missouri says:

    Perhaps the Mega Size Semi’s are truly dead? (besides the 18,000,000 still out there languishing on pegs)

  • rpag says:

    man rippers, you guys are getting tons of stuff lately! Great scores!
