Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: It’s Beginning to Feel Like a Target Winter Reset

It’s the most wonderful Target on your wallet time of the year …

The empty space for a Holiday 5-pack will surely fill the hole in your collection … or make you cry the holiday blues … Please come home for Christmas …

Or for those DPCI collectors …

This zoom is great, I can tell you it’s time to flip the burgers on your backyard BBQ 🙂

That’s the DPCI number beginning with 087 …

Great photos, Kevin T. of CARS CARES …

Might be soon as the post Halloween reset is a-here.

This was last year’s 5-pack …

It seems very likely we’re getting a whole new 5-pack this year with this Lightning replacing the “oversized” Reindeer Mater …


And there’s a Winter Luigi & Guido …


Plus Fillmore (no Sarge apparently)

Sarge Fillmore

So that’s 4 of the 5 … presuming Luigi & Guido count as 1 each of the 5 … so, who’s the 5th CAR of the new Mater Christmas 5-pack? Doc? Sally? Sheriff? Or a surprise winter CAR?

Icy Dan Sclarkenberger?


It is believed last year’s singles will be back but for sure, for sure?

Send us a pic when you find the box itself.

Happy hunting!

    Thornton, CO

    Check out TRU’s web-site. They do have the Christmas car set with McQueen with lights, although the other cars are the same as last years version excluding Ramone and Sally. They are selling for $19.99 plus shipping. They state on the box as being a TRU exclusive.

      The product description does not match the picture……picture shows Snow plow and Lights McQueen with Mater, Doc and Sheriff; and the description says Santa Car, Whee-Hoo Winter Mater and Holiday Hotshot McQueen (only saw the Santa Car set at TRU yesterday and picked one up, did not see any Christmas Cars singles out yet). Will TRU get a second Christmas Cars set? Will the Snow plow and Lights McQueen be a single or in Target’s Christmas pack?

  • Stig McQueen says:

    Went to Target on Tuesday after voting; kids were off (schools are used as polling places), and Stig Jr. needed new pants. Took a detour through the CARS aisle, and lo and behold, there were the 9-packs! Too expensive for me, but it was the first sign of new CARS in that store since May. they had also moved a lot of their Toons peg-warmers to an end-cap, freeing up space for more new singles (one can hope!).

    The staff was still in the process of switching over from Halloween to Christmas, which kinda surprised me. With all of the talk about “black Friday” coming early this year, I figured they’d have pulled an all-nighter on Halloween and had everything reset by Monday morning. I need to run some errands this evening; maybe I’ll stop by and see if anything “interesting” has hit the shelves since then.

    I saw singles with “Rollback” pricing at WalMart. They were $.03 cheaper! I was tempted to stock up on Lightning McQueens but held myself back. 🙂

  • Rich says:

    I passed on the $39 set and really hope the camera cars come as
    singles. Actually, I really only need the two middle camera cars and the 95 fan. I already have the little green camera car, Lenticular, but that’s ok, so I’m not spending that much for 3 cars I need.

  • Mr. T says:

    Headed out to get the 9 pack tomorrow – ouch…..

    Fingers crossed for a repeat of last year – Yeah, yeah, shoulda coulda woulda……. darn it….

  • kdthomas says:

    Also of note was still plenty of Final Lap case H on the pegs as well as three 9-Packs and a few Bumper Save Crew sets. Also went to TRU and picked up their Mater Saves Christmas 3-Pack. It’s a nice little set. They had around 10 of these on the shelf so I was able to get the best looking one. Look out for scuffs on the cars (especially the eyes) and clearly check the box for creases.

  • jestrjef says:

    Just called my closet Target …. none in the store yet … and in fact … none in ANY store in my district yet … I am ahead of the avalanche … glad I have my snow mobile ready. 😉

  • PVHaulerNo.16 says:

    Well, I think the 5 pack will be this, and I hope:
    McQ with Shovel
    Luigi and Guido (THese always were 1 car together to Mattel since the movie moments)
    Suprise Sarge (One can only hope)

    But, we’ll find out sooner or later what the pack has. I mainly collect new characters, so I hope we can get Dan, and I like these. I don’t care about clean of snowy, I just want the character, and saving buyin FL Dan in 2011.

  • kdthomas says:

    Stopped by at lunch and they were in the middle of the reset. I asked where the toys would be and they said where the Halloween clearance stuff was. Another clerk said she saw the toys in the back but they weren’t putting them out yet. They did bring up the DPCI but it came back with “No Location”. Told me to check back in a few days. So wanted to dress in in a Red t-shirt and Khaki pants and look for it in the warehouse 🙂

  • MWH80 says:

    Icy Dan Sclarkenberger?

    Sounds like one guy on my old hometown news team: Mark Schnackenburg.

  • moe says:

    They were doing reset Monday at our 3 Targets. Took down Halloween and was already stocking X-Mas items. Will be on the prowl for them. 🙂

  • scott says:

    last years set was actually a 6 pack so i am sure this one will be different.

  • Carsaholic says:

    Singles DPCI is 087-07-1006

    (MET: This singles DPCI is for the Holiday “Stocking Stuffers” Christmas packaging CARS not Storytellers Christmas CARS).

    • Eric says:

      Yeah, as MET notes that is for the cruddy Stocking Stuffers I just saw at Target. Looks like an amazing assortment of Mater, LMQ, Doc and King (fixed eyes) … all for the low, low price of $4.99 each! Aren’t there enough $5 LMQs laying around in the toy section, Target? 50% off on 12/26? Maybe they could do that with the Final Laps too? They seem to be the only Cars item not on sale at Target this week. Bummer since that is where we need the most peg relief in anticipation for the next case shipment. Any details on who is next in the Final Lap series?

  • I-am-speed says:

    I think it’s a safe bet that it will be some seasonal form of Mater in the 5-pack. Any multi-pack is surely going to include the stars, Lightning and Mater.

  • Jinzo says:

    Damn it! Really wanted Santa Car to be in this new boxset 🙁 Man…

  • Indykjt says:

    Curious to see what the 5 pack will be. The McQueen with lights, Guido, Luigi, and Fillmore shown above have all been seen on Ebay, as well as some kind of green Sheriff. Will those be the five? It’s hard to imagine that any Christmas set wouldn’t include Mater, so… ????
