Disney Pixar CARS: Official Crew Chief Look (Not For Release) (UPDATE!)

While none of these Crew Chiefs are scheduled for release, from the Italian CARS magazines, here is the official Pixar approved look & body type for the Crew Chiefs…

Pickup body?

SUV Body?

The controversial – is he white like the letter R in RPM or did they forget to render him correctly?

Of course, the Pitty is released.

So, we now what know what these 5 Crew Chiefs will look like – will they get a release?

And I’m no auto expert but aren’t most of the Crew Chief tires wildly underinflated … is that some ‘pants on the ground’ thing for CARS? Are they planning on drifting later on? High pressure job, low pressure tires? Did someone substitute the nitrogen mix with helium?

UPDATE – CAC1959 was kind enough to upload a pic from the UK version of the CARS magazine which shows some top views … and since Nitrorade Chief (released in the int’l crew chief pack) is definitely an open pickup truck, further evidence there are “approved” designs for many other crew chiefs.

Bring ’em on!

    Also, notice how there’s the Nitroade Crew Chief in 2 sizes. Odd? I hope they do finish the crew chiefs, and fix Chief RPM. The one made looks so different it isn’t even Chief RPM. Maybe a 4 pack w/ corrected Chief RPM, Tough Guy (Not Chuck) pitty, wide, and wide w/ gun.

    Some of these are online at target.com, but of course unavailable at this time.

    Love the crew chiefs! Is this magazine an official release or produced by fans? It looks very interesting.

    (MET: It’s official from Disney but it’s only published in various EU countries. Here’s a preview from a couple years ago – it’s very nice).

    Only question I have… WHERE IS VINYL TOUPEE Team at? Can’t wait to complete my Vinyl Toupee set 😀

  • babychristianscars says:

    Awesome cars. I love the crew chief sets. Just wish online would get them.

  • MWH80 says:

    I think the low front tire pressure is meant to give the impression that they are leaning heavily on their front tires, leaning forward for intensity.

  • Jambouk says:

    There tyres are soft as they been hanging around waiting for release for an age.
    I am really surprised we didnt get all the pittys as singles.

  • cac1959 says:

    Page 15 of issue 30 of the UK Cars magazine shows photos (viewed from the top) of Rev N Go, Trunk Fresh, Gask-Its, N2O Cola, and Nitroade crew chiefs.

    In the caption, it also says “These pick-ups are missing their cargo. Use the outlines to work out which group of crates on the right should be in each truck.”

    Here’s hoping that Mattel does release the team crew sets sooner rather than later.

  • BMW says:

    I don’t get this either. Pictures of approved chief designs but not scheduled. Why do the designs if you are not gonna make them?

  • Dunroamin says:

    Not released?…wasn’t N2o cola part of your original “to be released” post? along with Nitroade and Easy Idle… I thought I remebered a crazy graphic in “bubble case” listing the upcoming releases…

  • Jack says:

    Very nice. Most collectors love the crew chiefs. I believe sooner or later we there will be a bunch released.
    We have to be getting the ones pictured on Target.com very soon.
    All my Targets are getting very bare in the Cars section. I feel a change coming.
    By Back Friday if they still don’t get some new crew chiefs at Target than where the heck are they?

    • Dunroamin says:

      Some re-setters at a Target near me told em that the stocking stufefr aisle will be complete in a few days…Whee-Hoo Holiday singles!

      • Jack says:

        Yes but Stocking stuffer cars aren’t holiday cars. Just regular cars in different packaging.
        The Target Christmas sets I do expect to see any day with some Holiday cars like Luigi and Guido.
        At least one member found the Holiday Cars in the balls at TRU in the US already also.

        • Dunroamin says:

          I disagree…(which i normally would never do with you, jack) My local targets had all the storytellers (in the book format, snowday sally, etc.) last year in with the stocking stuffers..never on the pegs…TRU, on the other hand…right in the CARS aisle…
          Box Sets in the Christmas aisle last year at target, but tagged for the CARS aisle this year at target…

          Guess the stores are reset differently, depending on the location…

          Jack, Do you know what cars were found in the holiday BALLS at TRU (sorry kids, I tried to keep it G rated)

  • Kevin W says:

    Maybe K-Mart Collectors’ Days?????????

  • NascarFan says:

  • Hostile Takeover Banker says:

    Very nice! Here is hoping they do get released.
