Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Kmart CARS on the Spied on the Shelves …

“BrianD.” in the US and “MrBrownstone,” in the UK already have Kmart CARS on the shelf …

On the shelf at his Kmart in the US …

He got almost all of the racers …

Interestingly enough, he was not able to snag Faux Wheel Drive, View Zeen or Gask-its …

Though View Zeen was apparently selling in the $30 range a while back so … I guess someone pawed past Tach O Mint to shout – VIEW ZEEN, FINALLY! I SEE YOU!

And in the UK, “Mr. Brownstone,” found the Kmart CARS at the Disney Stores …

I predict there will not be a lot of Tach O Mint’s left. πŸ™‚

Looks like they are Β£6 at the Disney Stores UK or €8 at the Disney Stores on the continent?

Nice to see them just hanging on the pegs.

And one of the two new lenticulars (Race Tow Truck) Tom and CHASE Lightning … not sure if Dash Boardman made the trip? Presumably?

And it looks like the Disney Stores are getting a new box design for the 20-pack … more of the “Night Skyline,” look.

This probably explains why the current 20-pack is about 29% off at the Disney Stores – $69.99.

Happy shopping!

    Fun With Kmart.com “Customer Service”

    You are now chatting with Desmond.

    Desmond: Hi, my name is Desmond, and it’s my pleasure to assist you today as your Personal Shopper.

    You: Hi, I’ve never received email confirmations for my recent pre-orders. Do you know when they will ship?

    Desmond: I’ll be glad to assist you with that. May I have the order number please?

    You: *********

    Desmond: Okay. Please stay online while I check with the order.

    You: Thank you

    Desmond: For verification purposes, may I have the name on the account and the billing address along with the email that was used to place the order?

    You: ****

    Desmond: Thank you for the information. As your order is a pre order, you will receive the notification e-mail as soon as the item arrives.

    Desmond: Is that the answer for your query?

    You: So it’s not being shipped today? Do you know the date it will ship?

    Desmond: Please give me a moment while I check that for you.

    Desmond: I am sorry, as soon as it arrives it will be shipped. There is no information given about the shipping date.

    You: The in-store Cars Collector event is tomorrow, so I was expecting word today. Is there anyone who can tell me the shipping date?

    Desmond: Yes, I request you to contact our delivery team at 1-800-732-7747.

    You: Thank You.

    Desmond: They have real time track of the items. Is there anything else I can assist you with?

    You: No thank you.

    Desmond: There is a brief survey after this chat, I request you to provide us the feedback which will help us to assist you better in future.

    You: Mwuu hah hah hah!!!….

    OK, so I didn’t say last last part to “Desmond”, but I did call the phone number he gave me. On the first 2 attempts, the line went did when I waited for someone to speak with, but when I finally got through and talked to them for a little bit, I realized I was given the number for Sears Appliances. They transferred me to the “delivery team”, who basically told me what Desmond did online.

    So I have to ask myself once again, why oh why do I continue to do pre-orders with Kmart.com?????

    • John in Missouri says:

      The most ironic part of this whole episode is that they just emailed me a survey based on my phone call — that is the first email I’ve gotten from Kmart PERIOD! πŸ™‚

      (MET: You made a new LIFELONG FACEBOOK-LIKE FRIEND! πŸ™‚ ).

  • jammywin says:

  • Rebecca says:

    Finally found the 3 pack with synthetic tires in Colorado Springs today. They had about 8 of them. Yay!!!

  • JMBoost says:

    Managed to get 6 of the race cars from my Disney store here in the UK (didn’t need nitroade or view zeen) thanks to the young lady working there who remembered I was hunting new additions to my sons collection. She had seen them come in and thought of me, 2 mins later I walk in the shop! She brought them out for me from the delivery area.
    Now I have one very happy son.
    Nice to see these over here, now for some more final lap stuff!

  • BrianD says:

    I didn’t buy the Gask-it or Faux Wheel Drive since I purchased the three pack.

  • Chiesurin says:

    I found the Kmart CARS at the Disney Stores, in LONDON-UK!………..

  • scott says:

    thats $5 off $5 toy purchase guarantees me free cars awesome awesome awesome

  • TarheelBill says:

    Is Dash Boardman still coming out on the Final Lap card? I assume the one in the Kmart case is lenticular.

  • I-LUV-RACE-CARS says:

    May I ask a question?

    Since when is the tow truck called “Tom”?

    On the original package and on the blue-ray disc he is called “Tow”

    Do you think they mixed him and “Race official Tom” up?

    (MET: What I sort of suspect is it might be the result of some bored trademark lawyer at Disney … hard to trademark a Tow truck called Tow (too broad) so my guess they randomly slapped a longer moniker which you can trademark … Look for it on the back of Tow’s trading card – Used to be known as Tow but international trademark lawyers said ‘You Hasta Pick Another More Legally Distinctive & Descriptive Name.”β„’).

  • Matias Sosa says:

    HEY! The tow truck its called TOW , not Tom ;S . Tom its that piston cup official , color blue and yellow that appeared when the officials where watching the race video
    (well , it appeared like Tow in the bluray car finder game)

  • Frank says:

    Good to see that some of the Kmart cars are making it across the pond, but we probably won’t see them in Germany (no more Disney stores here). The closest one to me is probably the one in Paris, just 650 km east. πŸ™‚

  • Adam says:

    Also, check end caps facing the walls, rather than the open aisles. That’s where I found them, along with a small box full of hot wheel batmobiles and ecto-1’s. I think some collectors are bribing stockers to hide/place good new stuff in sneaky places.

  • cac1959 says:

    I got a set a month ago from a friend in Australia… I can’t wait to add more of them… I still haven’t seen the 3 pack in stores but thanks to friends have several…

    I’m still super excited about the even this Saturday which is now in 47 hours and 6 minutes…

    No e-mails from Kmart for me either…

  • Rippers says:

    At Β£6 each in the UK I’ll be getting mine from my friend in the US

  • jestrjef says:

    Its ok … a few more days and these will be FLOODING the pegs and ebay … I can wait a little while longer!! πŸ™‚ I am glad that some of you are finding them. Cannot WAIT for Saturday! πŸ™‚

  • John in Missouri says:

    I wish Kmart had a S.W.A.T. team that would descend upon the U.S. stores that are stocking these early and close them down for good. I wonder what Dev thinks of all this?

  • erno2 says:

    Cant wait to finally complete the racers! I will be very picky with what I buy for Cars II or so I tell myself. I hope they do Formula 1 type cars.

  • Adam says:

    Have 3 sets of KM5 already, the local kmart had them on pegs since last Friday, and has been restocking as well.

  • MrBrownstone says:

    Yes, Dash also made the trip across (I saw him in a boxed case where I got the chase from) someone had obviously beat me to him from the case that was on the pegs.

    Interstingly both SWS’s were bought from the case on display – presumably as most people will have the Hauler and so want the car to go with him.
