Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: UK Promo CAR & France Promo Update

As suspected, the UK Promo CAR is Faux Wheel Drive …

Original Offer …

And over in France, they have changed the promo sheet from this …

to this …

As “David V.” notes, “The French promo has changed. As it was written in the first ad but in very small letters : if they run out Faux Wheel Drive, they will send another yellow car. As you can guess, the yellow car is Sidewall Shine.”

Thanks for the update and pics, “David V.” & “Rippers.”

    Can anybody tell me which K-Mart day had Faux Wheel Drive, View Zeen and Gask-Its? I found these three last year in some leftover Cars 1 stuff and wasn’t sure what K-Mart day they were. Can anybody tell me?

    (MET: KM Day #5)

    News From France:

  • madbob says:

    Thanks for sharing the info Jammy…

  • Carlos says:

    when will Gaskits and Tach O Mint be out? Are the launchers still scheduled? If not, then how will I get them? I thought, worse case, I’ll trade or buy one from an international collector, but, now how will I?

    • Sandy says:

      These will be coming out at Kmart day 5 with rubber tires in October. I dont think anyone has confirmed these but I think Im pretty sure. Why are you looking for plastic tires versions?

      • Sandy says:

        Heres are the cars that are suppose to release in October:
        Tach O Mint #101
        Gask-Its #80
        Faux Wheel Drive #54
        Tank Coat #36
        Sidewall Shine #74
        Shiny Wax #82
        View Zeen #39
        Nitroade #28
        Chase- Paint Mask Lightning McQueen #131 google eyes

        • Carlos says:

          Will Paint Mask McQ be exclusive? Also, I wish these were all non lenticular plastic tires. I think I’m the only one who hates rubber tires. All of my racers have plastic tires, and I want them all to be like that. I just like plastic tires better.

          • Sandy says:

            Paint mask Mcqueen is exclusive to this case. These are non lenticular but rubber tires. So if you want the harder to find cars this might be your only option unless you wanna pay big bucks for these. Dont know if they are coming out as launchers.
            And your probably not the only one who doesnt like the rubber tires. I personally like them but what kills me is that my 3 yr old son tries and does take the rubber tires off with his teeth. What a hazard! So I have to keep those away from him until he knows a little better.

            • Carlos says:

              I kind of like rubber tires, but I have the same problems you do. If Paint Mask McQ is exclusive, then there’s a change of plans. I usually associate “Chase” to something that’s tough to find, and you’ll have to chase all over towm to find, not something that’s right there and so easy, a cavecar can find.

  • JMBoost says:

    I still need this car, but as the two TRU stores closest to me have sod all in I ain’t holding my breath on getting my 5 reciepts needed to claim it!

    @jammywin, where the hells your Disney store? My local one is run like crap, hardly any cars out apart from Disney Stores own brand cars!

    • jammywin says:

    And we got it in a JAR for € 599 hahahaha…… 🙂

  • cac1959 says:

    Shame on Mattel… sending out the exact same promo Car to the UK as they did 2 years ago… If they knew in advance they were using the same promo Car that they did 2 years ago, they should have listed it. To have the same promo that they did 2 years ago with the original literature is misleading the customer at best.

    The good news about the promo being FWD is that I won’t be buying any additional promo UK Cars this month, which leaves more money for the other new releases that may show up in the US, the UK, Canada, and Australia this month.

  • Aw man! I thought the UK promo was gonna be the Apple car! I’m very disappointed! I guess the UK likes having FWD as a promo car.

  • jammywin says:
