Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS 2: CARS 2 Diecasts Coming Sooner or Later

While there’s no list of CARS 2 coming as diecasts yet, it doesn’t take a leap of your imagination to guess which ones are coming first. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mater sports a Lightning Team logo on his doors now and of course, who’s betting against a Pit Crew Member Mater release? ๐Ÿ™‚

And Lightning McQueen 2.0 …

The spy who partners up with Mater, Finn McMissile …

And his assistant, Holly Shiftwell … um, she certainly does!

Plus the bad guys …

“Chase” quickly ID’s the main villian as “… with glasses is a 1956-57 Janus built and powered by a Zundapp two stroke motour. A very obscure microcar from Germany and very cool!”


Of course, there are also henchmen Gremlins and Pacers …

And of course … the nearly certain CHASE version with rockets (slight upgrade from CHASE FRED with Bad Teeth) ๐Ÿ™‚

Diecast door must be mismatched color – we’re double checking! ๐Ÿ™‚

Challenger in the fight scene …

And of course, the racers McQueen competes against … looks like there are 10 other racers?

Looking at all the visual clues … the green racer at the very end is clearly an F1 racer (shown off earlier).

There is a yellow Corvette and a Green Aston Martin (tail lights) …

Be sure and check out the Pit Crews below …

Blue & Red up front is some rally car … plus we can pretty much make out the name of the Japanese racer … Shu something …

Some more names … including a British racer named LEWIS … humm, who could he named after? Or will he be play “himself?”

More Pitty’s plus the new “Flag Man.” Honda?

Rally racer not from the grid?

So, just counting the main characters plus race crew – we’re pretty at 100 CARS? ๐Ÿ™‚

Not bad for 25 seconds of footage of just the main characters & the racers (minus the titles and the scene of Radiator Springs ๐Ÿ™‚ ) … plus another post tomorrow covering the “background” CARS2 CARS of the FIRST trailer … imagine when the movie comes out. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Monica says:

    I am loving McQ with flames! Can’t wait! Definitely going to see this at the El Capitan theatre next Summer hooray! Bring them on!

  • Knightrider says:

    I’m gonna Hazard a guess that the World Grand Prix is a Best of the Best event whereby all of the entrants have win a trophy in their respective country, hence the different car types and low number of racers.

  • Shagon says:

    the guy identifid as “…with glasses is a 1956-57 Janus built and powered by a Zundapp two stroke motour. A very obscure microcar from Germany and very cool!โ€ His real name is Professor Zรผndapp. it is told so on http://pixar.wikia.com/Category:Cars_2_Characters

  • oliversmom says:

    loving it
    will have to open attic for exhibitions!

  • PirateDad says:

    My first car was an AMC Pacer and it most certainly was EVIl!!! An evil fishbowl!

    These are gonna be HARD to resisit!!!

  • Man-I-Fold says:

    I wonder if we’ll see the “Lug Nuts In A Cup” sponsor (a la Tokyo Mater) in the new movie, or will it stay in Mater’s head?

  • BMW says:

    If you look at the rules for Formula 1 racing it is 24 cars maximum.

  • hypercarrots says:

    i saw a mini cooper and audi tt in the trailer also

  • John in Missouri says:

    With all the speculation on the other 10 racers, don’t forget that this is just a trailer folks. If any of you recall the original Cars trailer, most — if not all — of the footage did not make the actual movie, so 10 racers here could become 36 in the movie.

  • Crazy Cars says:

    Awsome pics Met…. I was not going to collect these but after I saw the pacer and gremlin, I have too now.. I remember when my dad had those cars as I was growing up.. MY son now has models he has done of those cars in his room…. So we gotta have them

  • carslovermom says:

    Can’t wait for the movie. Comes out 1 day before my oldest son’s birthday. Happy Birthday!

  • Mariela says:

    Very nice pics Met!!
    We were stopping every second in the video trying to see the racers better! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • babychristianscars says:

    Awesome cars.

    I also wonder about the theme of the movie and hope the little kids still love it.

  • Uncle Skip says:

    he-he… all in ol… he-he…

    Not a bad preview… kids seem to like it a lot so far. Secret agent themes seem to do well with the kiddies… of course, Michael wanted to know why McQueen was at the back of the line of racers… what happened to speed???

    all-in-ol a great preview!

    • quercy says:

      I’m sure there is a very good reason for that. I was sking myself the same question yesterday night… But after reviewing the top view pic… he is not the last one… He is taking 10th spot out of 11… I cannot believe all (almost all of them ๐Ÿ™‚ ) these cars will be mine one day… the diecast ones of course!! Isn’t that exciting ???

  • kdthomas says:

    Most of these have been sold on eBay already.

    • BMW says:

      Actually no. Mattel had them removed.

    • BMW says:

      Greyish blue car is Finn McMissle (as stated)
      Purple race car with #4 on side, red\yellow stripes AND Wtcl LOGO is DTM Racer
      Green formula racer is Carla Veloso
      Dark blue Challenger is Rod Torque Redline
      purple car is Holly Shiftwell (as Met noted)
      Monocled car is Professor Zundapp
      dark green race car #9 is Aston Martin DB9R
      yellow racer #24 is Jeff Gorvette

      Gleaned the names from the pulled ebay auctions.

  • danieljkurz says:

    “Finn McMissile” is meant to be James Bondโ€™s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 from โ€œGoldfingerโ€.

    They apparently changed the grill ( and a few other minor details ) to get around licensing issues.

    • por356 says:

      To call Finn an Aston Martin DB5 (the James Bond car) is really stretching a point. The whole front end is different, the DB5 had headlights inset into the fenders, not forming the ends as shown. There are also two characteristic “valleys” on either side of the grill that Finn does not have. Finn’s grill is obviously a mustasche ala Van or Luigi.
      I believe the character is supposed to evoke the flavor of a secret agent sports car without treading on the licensing ground held by Aston Martin.
      Finn is much closer to a BMW 507 than anything else, but that does not make much sense from a historical standpoint unless it is some kind of inside Pixar joke about BMW now owning two iconic British brands (Mini and Bentley).

      • Tizmanian says:

        Good points! I find it eerily reminiscent of the old early 70’s Volvo P1800 two door coupe as well. Definitely a mosh up.

        • por356 says:

          I agree. The 507 was a convertible and the hardtop roof line was curved. Finn’s roof line does look a lot like the Volvos. The little fins (another joke) on his rear fenders could be from the Volvo but they also look like the eye candy the Italian design houses used to put on their prototypes. The Japanese used to call this kind of thing “surface entertainment”.
          Actually, I believe Pixar does this sort of thing just to get Cars nuts involved in endless rounds of discussion about angels and pin heads. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • danieljkurz says:

        “I believe the character is supposed to evoke the flavor of a secret agent sports car without treading on the licensing ground held by Aston Martin.”

        Ummmm, that is basically the EXACT SAME THING THAT I SAID.

  • jambouk says:

    All will become clear my friends, But my guess at some cars is this.
    Flag guy is a Honda civic, finn mc missile seems to be either a bmw (wrong badge though) or an early volvo,
    Also behind the aston is a Caparo t1, and accross from that is a nissan gtr,Ford fiesta rallycross up front and the black car behind corvette is an Ascari A10, Also a nissan le mans car is in there.

    Anyone else help?

    Also world grand prix set with ten cars???? not quite the same as the SOS set but then again about the same amount of diff moulds so same cost overall?
    Anyway BRING THEM ON!!!!

  • John in Missouri says:

    Check out the photo with all the red Pitty’s — is that a new Dinoco logo just under the Take5 logo??? And if so, McQueen doesn’t have a Rust-eze logo on his hood, so maybe Dinoco bought out Rust-eze, and now McQueen’s dream has come true — he’s racing for Dinoco and they sent him overseas to race in the World Grand Prix?

  • TarheelBill says:

    I wonder if it will take as long to get the Apple car as it did to get The Beatles on iTunes ???

  • apklimon says:

    Can’t wait, besides it’s Pixar and they haven’t let us down yet. However, with that being said it doesn’t (on the surface) look to have the normal amount of emotional depth and development that normally comes with a Pixar production. Most of their previews bring tears to your eyes but this one feels almost like a “Dreamworks” type film. But I’ll say it again, It’s Pixar….when they start making bad movies is when I’ll start doubting them.

    • Uncle Skip says:

      Just re-watched the very first Cars trailer… this first Cars 2 trailer seems pretty similar in theme and tone to that one…

      Maybe the tear-jerker will come in the second trailer release???

  • John in Missouri says:

    In the photo with all the red pittyโ€™s in Japan, Iโ€™d swear thatโ€™s a new Dinoco logo just below the Take5 logo. And I donโ€™t see Rust-eze on McQueen anymore, so is it possible Dinoco bought them out and he now races for Dinoco???

  • Kevin W says:

    Herb, the Love Buggy was on TV this morning. I couldn’t help but see the similarities between that show and Cars 2. A big European race set on the backdrop of a spy ring. Nevertheless, I can’t wait for Cars 2. I wonder if K-Mart will have Cars 2 days with the new set of racers ๐Ÿ™‚

  • buckland-blowouts says:

    Need another room again!!! I will build this one out of those extra ransburg red McQueens we have kickin’ around somewhere…

  • NascarFan says:

    cant wait for this movie to come out, gonna be good

  • collectormom says:

    Finn McMissile sounds like Michael Cain?

  • Hostile Takeover Banker says:

    Collect them all!!!

  • jestrjef says:

    WOW!! I always joked about adding a second wing to the garage for Cars 2 …. I think I better start REALLY planning now …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • cac1959 says:

      I’m going to ask my landlord if he will add onto the house so I have enough room to collect them all…

      And while the spy co-theme may seem like a stretch to some, I think it’s a brilliant idea to expand the audience and number of collectors by having a more adult theme.

      I was going to stop after the first movie…and then after Dr. Mater… and then after Mater the Greater… and then El Materdor… and then Tokyo Mater… and then UFM… but I am not able or willing to stop now. The first Cars 2 cases should be all new Cars… Think those are gonna sell well? I do.

      Thanks again, Met.

  • Mr. T says:

    I will definitely see the movie but as I told my wife last night – she wrinkled her nose at the idea of a ‘secret agent theme’ and said why not stay a with the radiator springs story line. Like how about some land developer coming in wanting to wipe out the town and put something in it’s place – and McQueen and the gang do some kind of Route 66 race – older cars through history – and new ones as well.

    I do like the characters in the new one – but the idea is a stretch for me.
