Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS 2: Diecast Collectors, Ready, Set …

Get ready …

Clear some room – in your room and clear some room on your home equity credit line …

Our good friend “JD” tells us diecast CARS 2 CARS are in the Walmart system …

Singles will be $3.97

Movie Moments (or the equivalent namesake) will be $7.97

And the Deluxe-Oversized Lineup will be $6.97

In lieu of COLOR CHANGERS, there’s something about “face making assortment,” presumably some sort of assemble-it-yourself CAR or face plate changing CARS? No price listing but probably in the $5-$7 range – just guessing – diecast or plastic??

Unknown as of now.

And 5 playsets listed – one named, “Barrel Blowout.”

And the Spring 2011 WM reset will start THIS SUNDAY …

Spring 2011 reset NOT CARS 2 so calm down and relax. Breath. Breath. Breath. Get a breath mint. Breath. Breath. Breath.

NOT for CARS 2 CARS … that is scheduled for May 2011 – though that means they will be shipping before then and some store and some clerk out in a land of 80,000 retail stores will break the embargo … so who will be first in America to buy a legitimate ON THE RETAIL SHELF CARS 2 CAR?

Will it be you?

Will you round the corner and drop an S-F-H bomb?

Will some tiny 3-year old kid wonder why an adult needs 114 CARS in his arms? And whether he can stagger to the register without dropping any?

Will you game the system by buying a blue or red vest and carry a pricing gun starting April 1? πŸ™‚

Thanks for the update, “JD.”

Oh and GeoTrax collectors can rejoice, GeoTrax CARS 2 is on the list …

    MAY!?

    I find that hard to believe that Disney would wait that ‘late’ in the marketing season to unleash Cars 2 merchandise. I recall when the first Cars came out, I find them in stores just being put out at the end of March.

    Though I shall still remain strong, and say no to Cars 2 merch. I won’t go through another 5-7 years of this collecting runaround that Mattel gave me.

  • RampagingRex says:

    NO….MUST RESIST…
    I really want to know when they finish the Cars 1 line so I know when to stop buying up those and start on Cars 2!!

  • damian says:

    What is S-F-H?

  • I-LUV-RACE-CARS says:

    Sigh…well all I can say is they will probably never get here so if I cannot resist I will have to spend more to pay for shipping! AAAARRRR!!! And for those of you who are not happy with spending almost $6 a car.. That is what I always have to pay and it is usually more like $7 a car with shipping and all that πŸ™

  • buckland-blowouts says:

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! So exciting!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

  • It’s true, I will have to avoid the toy aisle to quit, it will be tough, grrrr

  • Cars started out at 2.99 each, fair and a nice price. Now Cars are almost 6.00 each after tax. Yes… not only have I run out of room to display them, but who wants to pay over 5.00 each? I just got the xmas tru cars for 1.24 each, now that is a price that entices me to collect. Over $5.00 each. Safe to say…………..I retire from Car collecting.

    It’s not that I can or can’t afford it, it’s more about common sense. Maybe those hot wheel collectors are smarter, they spend “One dollar Bob” for each car. That is what I call….. The Price is Right, come on down!

    (MET: How many HW collectors resist the $2.99, $4.99, $14.95 cars? πŸ™‚ ).

  • babychristianscars says:

    Awesome and makes sense why all the cars have disappeared in our Walmart. Hoping they are back as of Sunday.

    and really happy to see the prices back to 2007 prices no more paying $6 a car.

  • quercy says:

    Wife – “Honey why are you doing overtime? All our bills are paid… We are just find!!???”

    Husband – “TFAD have just confirmed it… We’ve better to be ready when time will come… :-)”

  • Monica says:

    I am so screwed. all my WalMarts have terrible Cars stocking πŸ™

  • sootyhull says:

    IT WOULD BE NICE FOR THE CARS 1 LINE TO BE FINISHED FIRST.

    • Jack says:

      It seems pretty obvious that they plan on running the Cars 1 line concurrently with the Cars 2 line for awhile. It’s a great idea to entice the collectors of the original line to keep collecting.
      Most collectors of the original line will find it hard to pass up the Cars 2 cars just sitting on the pegs while shopping for the cars 1 cars they have been collecting already. As opposed to if they just ended one line and started another.
      We won’t even consider resisting collecting for Cars 2. My Son and I will be collecting Cars for as long as they are making them. So bring em on.
      I also believe we will see Cars 2 cars long before May. Look for TRU to be a big player. A look into who bought up all the stock in TRU when the stock price was low and made it a privately owned company will show some truly mega rich and powerful people now on TRU. I wouldn’t bet against TRU.

      • Piston Car Hunter says:

        Noooo! We’re wanting to draw the line when Cars 2 cars start up. I was hoping it would be an abrupt end to the original Cars collection when the Cars 2 ones hit. It will be much harder to quit and resist the temptation if they’re sitting right there next to the others. But that might be Mattel’s strategy to reel in folks like me that were wanting to stop. Then again, we’ve been able to steer clear (mostly) of the Toons. πŸ˜€

  • I-am-speed says:

    I found Finn McMissile at Big Lots yesterday! You guys are already behind!

  • Kevin W says:

    So, do we start looking for the toons at Big Lots?

  • L8rM8r says:

    May that seems like so long to wait, but as you stated I am sure they will leak out before then from some retailer who does not know any better.

  • LUCA says:

    I’m ready!! I’ve bought a bigger house right now!!! πŸ™‚

    • quercy says:

      I’m thinking about that too…. Just insane πŸ™‚ Really I didn’t enjoy so much doing a collection in my life. It’s a lot more fun than coins or stamps isn’t it???

    • quercy says:

      To answer you about the shelves you want to built. Looks great but my son is still too young to understyand the “collection concept” so for now they are in boxes way up in closets… and I mean boxeS… lots of boxeS… Then the next step will be to make him understand why these must not be opened… it breaks my heart already… πŸ™

      • babychristianscars says:

        What is the fun to the child if he can never touch the cars. Open them up let him play and enjoy his childhood.

        My son died in 1993, I bought the first cars for his 13th birthday in 2006 and took them to the cemetary. Yep some of the first got dirt in the wheels or had to have cake taken off of them but that’s why I collect.

        Now they only go to the cemetary a small group at a time, over 400 cars is too many to travel with.

        2 Years ago flying home with precious cars in a carry on got a lot of looks from security.

        • quercy says:

          Don’t worry he have a lot to play with. He has 60-80 loose CARS and I still buy one here and there for him to play of course. I should have explained I want to show him later on, some are for a collection, that’s all. I’m 46 and I am not shy to tell to everyone how much I like to lay down on the floor with my son and play for hours with CARS and make stories. This is so fun for me also to go back in time and remember when I was playing with my HotWheels and Matchbox cars doing pretty much the same things… I’m sorry for your lost and I cannot imagine how painful it can be. I am lucky to have such a wonderful boy and be able to play with him like I do. Maybe if I was 25-30 I won’t do that much because today I know how much time is precious…

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    I can’t wait! FINALLY a new Car at my Wal-Mart! I am so phyched!

  • cac1959 says:

    This gives me a little time to start saving up for them… Hopefully there will be good case assortments.

  • jestrjef says:

    AWESOME NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the heads up. Time to start camping outside Walmart!! πŸ˜‰

  • Jack says:

    It is going to be great to get the First Cars from Cars 2! :)-
