Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: A New WM Cube + Mater with Hood + New Tokyo Mater Playset

“RPAG” sends us a nice pic of a new WM cube – I did not see in my trips to two WM’s in my area …

It’s got the CHASE Mater with Glow in the Dark Lamp. It’s also got Hot Wheels on the other side …

“Rob (We’ve Lost Track of How Many Kids He Has)” sends us some beautiful pics of the NEXT CHASE after the Mater with Glow Lamp, “Mater with Hood.”

Nice …

“Nikko” sends along pics of a NEW Tokyo Mater playset …

“Pass or Crash.” Your insider tip to passing the California’s DMV Driving Test.

Yes, the police cars are plastic … (Police CAR is coming as a metal single, “Patokaa.”)

But this looks like one of the few playsets with THREE vehicles – even if they are plastic …

“SlicePie” sends along an open pic of the playset.

So, happy shopping!

Thanks for the great photos, “RPAG,” “Rob,” “Nikko,” and “SlicePie.”

    love all these comments as it gives me a clue as what to look out for in UK as we always end up a few weeks behind.
    Chase card mater with hood arrived in today. Plus had a green chick hicks which are like gold dust in UK shops this year.
    RPM cheif as well which has not shown up all year
    Mater with lantern as well.

    Picked up Sarges Boot camp off ebay (not for sale in UK).

    Keep up the posts as to what is arriving with you so i know whats coming my way.

    In Tokyo Mater, I didnt understand why the Japanese police car gave up chasing Mater, and then took part in the donut spinnings?

    Then I found it at the Cars wiki
    ■ The cops love donuts as a food, and the donut is a drifting move in which to spin in a circle.

    My local TRU is playing “Hide the Cars” again. This time they put them on the little 3 foot tall stands that are right in front of the cash registers. You know, the ones that usually have the flashlights, keychains and other stuff that you don’t care about. I almost walked right past but just happened to be looking down. Hiding them in plain sight (although, if I was a four foot tall kid, they would be perfectly placed. :))

    I found Duff Wrecks, but can’t have it until Christmas. Didn’t find Mater with lamp, but that doesn’t mean another family member got it for me.

  • DDD says:

    Thanks for the tip about these being in the garden section! Just picked up the lantern Mater…not a fan of lenties, but looks great with the Banshee! (nice mouth expression too!)

  • Jacob says:

    They had HUNDREDS of duff wrecks and ghostlight maters at my wal-mart. I did not pick any up though because I think lenticulars stink!

  • 5oclockshadow says:

    we have enough 4-packs here to last a few months. 1 store has almost a complete pallet, another has half a pallet.

    haven’t seen the chase hood Mater yet though.

    love the donut shop playset, but no donut shop pitty?

  • babychristianscars says:

    Awesome find. eBay has had these listed all week so figured it would show up at stores soon.

    Our walmart didn’t have this cube and nothing new on the shelves since wed.

    The 4 packs came and were hidden behind the hot wheel 10 packs. Only 20 total in our store.

    Interesting is they got 10 cases of the talking mack hauler but its still 19.97, not sure why they have so many of that hauler out. He takes up a full 3 4′ shelves in the christmas toy promotion area. He is also fully stocked on the main shelf.

  • NascarFan says:

    I cant believe the 4 pack boxes were only about 2 or 3 boxes per store. They went fast

  • jestrjef says:

    This Walmart “PDQ” (as a Walmart associate so kindly corrected me 😆 ) is hit or miss. I went to a number of different Walmarts on Wednesday and only saw this set up at ONE Walmart.

    It seems that the Walmarts had many of these Xmas Shelf set ups and some did puts cars on them, some didn’t. I saw a ton of barbie and board games in my travels. I did find Case S on the pegs at most of them, with Chase Lamp Mater already gone. 🙁

    I did get lucky at the last Walmart I visited … there was a uboat parked in the Toys area … it was filled with 20 or so boxes … 8 of them were Case S lentis!! On top of that, they had just put 2 cases on the Pegs, so the store got at least 10 CASES!! I picked up 2 Chase Mater there. WOO HOO! 🙂

  • Ryan says:

    I saw what was left of this cube. No Chase Maters left 🙁

  • NascarFan says:

    I got lost in pallets and pallets and pallets at our local walmarts….

    never saw anything labeled Cars pallet either, must have been saving the little guns for later

  • Shawn says:

    I was wondering about the police car. It would seem a no-brainer, as it was a prominent character. of course, there’s little rhyme or reason to what gets released and when.

    • Teekay421 says:

      The police car is supposed to be released – Patokaa (in my head, sounds like “Patrol Car”).

      • Fillmore1234 says:

        What about Tansou, Sanban, and Goodbye Kar? Have they been canceled? I really hope they haven’t.

        • PVHauler_16 says:

          Tansou should come in early 2011, I heard. Sanban and the other 2 signal cars are rumored to be in a 4 pack with Tokyo Mater. The rumor is Goodbye kar was cancelled, and the Kmart poster supports it, too.

          • Fillmore1234 says:

            Thanks for the help! Goodbye Kar wasn’t really on my list anyway, and I couldn’t even find her in the Movie! Is she in the end dancing scene?

            Checked my Wal-mart for new Cars. Nothing. SHOCKER. And why the ******* are Haulers $20 at my Shop-Ko? Quote from Shellsea in Fish Hooks on Disney Channel, “Yer Cah-ray-zayy.” 😛

  • Hostile Takeover Banker says:

    Mater with hood has an excellent expression, particularly in his eyes. Why they would then ruin that by making him Lenticular is beyond me.
