Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Final Laps Here in USA

I suppose this can be classified as a decent case …

… Even though there’s no Radiator Springs McQueen.

Now starting to appear nationwide …

… I wonder if they might’ve been able to sell a few cases online …

Thanks for the nice pics, “I Am Speed.”

    Just found these for the first time on the shelves today! Exactly one month after they were first encountered in the wild.

  • DDD says:

    Can someone share the DPCI code for the new case? Can it be entered into their scanners like previous posts have shown? Thanks!!

  • AidensMom624 says:

    Okay – so did anyone get any extras they would like to sell … or possibly ? I’d like a set for Aiden.

    I am not a Disney Cars collector, I just have an interest in them for my son so please forgive the ignorant question.

    What is the significance of the Final Lap collection? What makes a Final Lap car different from the same character in a different package?

    (MET: The “Final Lap” is the current “name” and design of this year’s current releases. It is a little complicated as they have split the line in two – there is a lenticular series (cars with eyes that have the lenticular plate and ‘move.’) and the continuation of the ‘classic-non moving eyes’ lineup (started in 2006). Normally, we get a lot of re-releases as part of making sure everyone has all the older CARS, in this case, the Final Lap series is 75% all new releases. If you want, here’s our visual checklist of all the Final Laps released so far this year – unfortunately you will not find the much older releases on the shelf but list what you are missing in our trading forum. Here is the checklist for all the lenticular & Final Lap CARS. We also have a magazine available for purchase that shows every CAR released from June 2006 to June 2010. Good luck and feel free to ask questions. We’re here to help and some readers might be able to scrap a few CARS together to sell you. πŸ™‚ ).

    I guess somebody beat me to the case at my local Target; only had one Valerie Veate left. But I DID score the Christmas set! There were about six of them on the shelf.

  • mistertwistermom says:

    They were in Oshkosh, WI – now they’re in my trunk! I have a couple extra cars if anyone is interested! I got a full set +3 – but my co-collector found them as well….Michelle

  • NascarFan says:

    Ordered online?…. Did anyone have the link?

  • Mikey says:

    Found these today at Target at 1:30 this afternoon! All cars were there in mint shape!

  • jestrjef says:

    I found 5 of the six at my local Target today! More hunting tomorrow morning!! Weeeeee hooooooo!! πŸ˜€

  • migrif says:

    Found all but Milo today in the Seattle area…..finally something new!!!

  • flophunter says:

    went this morning to look at all local targets somebody beat me to the case. only sign of the case was at one target. found one beat up duff. but hay it’s a find. that same store has 52 cars so i’m going back after shift change. and buying all 52 picking out the news and returning to diff location. then they have to pick from stockroom for me. i just don’t like it when some people don’t want to help a costomer out because it’s on the other side of the store!!!!!


    • Man-I-Fold says:

      Congrats on Duff! Where are you Flop?

      • flophunter says:

        i’m in grand rapids michigan. went back and found a girl that was so nice. she brought every final lap out of the back room. it was great one of the best cars days ive had for awhile. bought 11 of the 12, since i already had the damaged duuf wrecks from this morning. yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        happy hunting

        • Man-I-Fold says:

          Nice going, Flop! So cool when customer service will help you out! A really nice woman in the Maternity section helped me retrieve the case from the back room this evening in Norridge, IL. Inside was…. another repeats case, ick. But my local Target in Evanston had 4 of the 6 remaining. Just Tim Timezone and Jonathan Wrenchworths to go – yayyy!

  • Monica says:

    Dang! I knew I should have stopped at Target on my way in to the office this morning!

  • babychristianscars says:


    NO target near me either but awesome take5ers help keep me up to date.

  • L8rM8r says:

    Amazing case, I can’t wait to find these, but my guess it will be a few weeks with most of the Target’s in my area getting what looks like a repack of a few of the older cases.

  • CORINNE says:


  • Piston Car Hunter says:

    Well, at least I got a little break between cases. πŸ˜€ Guess I’ll have to call around during lunch!

  • snosno says:

    Will be checking Target @ lunch.

  • buckland-blowouts says:

    Matty must have had a late night with the ghostbusters or smoked too much ectoplasm or somethin’!!!

    What gives?!?!?!

    Unfortunately – We don’t get the Final lappers up here in the Great White North… Do you think we will get such a nice assortment of a case up here!?!?! Lenticular style of course?!?!?! EH, Dude-Met-Dude?!?!?

    PS – Like I said – we already have Duff on the shelves… Which is great too!

    ∫∫∫All I want for Christmas is my two Buck teeth , my two Buck teeth, oh my two Buck teeth, and a case of lovely assorted Cars with eyes!!!

  • jestrjef says:

    I am glad to see a case full of GOOD stuff!! Hope I see them here before Christmas!! πŸ™‚

  • cac1959 says:

    I would definitely have ordered a couple cases online… I have no Target within 50 miles and am still not permitted to drive, a little after 2 weeks after reconstructive surgery on my right elbow… it may be January.

    Of course, what you order online may not be what you receive… first Kmart, and now ToysRUs – I ordered 3 Snowplow McQueen and the Radiator Springs 5 pack with Lizzie on Saturday… the box came yesterday… 3 Snowplow McQueen, and the 5 pack with Sheriff and the 4 Tunerz, which I already had. Receiving what you order online should not be that difficult.

    Great score and photo, I-am-speed.

    • quercy says:

      I have ordered last november 30th also the McQueen and the Radiator Springs 5 pack with Lizzie as per the picture shown on the website. Then after I have read your post I went to my ToysRus account and effectively they have replaced the picture to what you have received… Sheriff and the rebel group. I must return it… What those people are thinking? How can you trust the online shopping if what they show you is not what you get… As far as I know I didn’t ordered a crackerjack box with an unknown surprise inside!!! Well I learn my lesson… No more online purchase from these stores.

      (MET: As I suspected but I hoped they found something in the back of the warehouse, oh well …).

  • I-am-speed says:

    That’s a photo that I sent to Met on Thursday after finding 2 sets at Target in the morning.

    Definitely made my day! πŸ™‚

    Not to be seen in Australia, sadly
