Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: WM Winter Reset – For Some, Fun Snow Day – Others, Days of Darkness

The WM reset is coming – for some, a fun snow day – for others, gloom of night and months of darkness …

Lenticular Singles get 8 pegs and the oversized get 4 pegs … which is about the only nice thing as the oversized-deluxe were not listed on any of WM’s last reset.

There is space for the 3-packs though there is nothing new on the list so it’s either a carry-over or maybe there’s a new 3-pack list coming.

Trucks & Trailers – same situation.

There are NO Toons listed (singles or deluxe) at this store.

However, at another WM, all is full (well, when they re-stocked):

Everything is listed …

Including both Toons and Toons Oversized + Color Changers …

So, be sure to go to the right WM.

WM does have CARS2 CARS in the system but not coming until late Spring-early Summer. Either the next reset or definitely the one after.

(BTW, S & G stands for Shake ‘N Go).

For Shake ‘n Go collectors, more are coming for CARS2 – there will be at least 8 releases including the new Lightning, Finn McMissile, Mater, Professor Zundapp, Jeff Gorvette and Holly Shiftwell + 2 racers. So, er Collect them all!

    i want the cars 2 diecasts but i can’t find them they must be in some stores.

  • Michigander says:

    Should not be too hard of a reset since our Wal-Mart did NOT stock much in the first place!?!

    Just means more of NOTHING for next year!!!

    Thanks for nothing Wal-Mart.

  • Dekoy says:

    Just checked a smaller WM (closes at 10 PM every night) here in Canada and we are really in for it.

    It shows on the pegs exactly 12 of Colour Changers and 20 of Lent./Eyes.

    That’s all.

    Nothing Toons, nothing deluxe. Even haulers may be gone…….

    The Walmart closest to my house has a smaller toy section, and they finished the reset in the last couple days. The Disney Cars moved over one aisle and they actually ADDED pegs for toons. The Toon singles WERE down to one peg and the MEGAS had NO PEG! They had no megas but they did just put out a fresh case of Singles. Can you say hello Yojimbo!! 🙂

  • The Collector says:

    there is no near walmart in my area but once my Smorz cereal runs out i may come back to see if i need cars i go to my target i found mater with oil can and a len. tim rimmer there yesterday =)

  • TarheelBill says:

    Around here the WM re-set usually means the same old same old….just rearranged. 🙁

  • old hippie says:

    One of the two Walmarts here had starting the reset last night. No new CARS, but I did find a lot of new Jada diecasts; which I collect.

  • Mariela says:

    All that I see in my Walmart is this paper..almost no Cars on the pegs, other than PC Sarge or Vern..

  • Steve AKA: Poppa says:

    Resets do not mean anything new in the pipeline. I do not collect any Cars Toons, but, I enjoy looking at them from the viewpoint of art work and creativity. If I want to see lenticulars (at least until the promised termination of them, hey!) etc I’ll stick with Target. Right now and looking at the resets for the entire toy section, Wal-Mart leaves much to be desired.

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    Our Wal-Mart already had it’s reset. The lentys stayed the same, but the Cars Toons were filled with the Yojimbo case. Spent $40 on all the ones I didn’t have, like 3 Yojimbos, Stripped Kabuto, Manji, Kaa Reesu, Komodo, and 2 Referee Pittys with Bell. Finally our Wal-Mart saw that we were out of Cars Toons, and I cleaned them out again. 😀 There was only 1 more Manji and 2 more Yojimbos. Was that the right Case Assortment? No Tabinu, but I may see him, Kyandee, and Drift Party Mater in the future!

    • Fillmore1234 says:

      And is $4.00 each how much they are at other stores around the country? Because here, Lentys and Cars Toons are $4.00 each, and everyone was cheering when we heard that Cars 2 were going to be $4.00 again.

  • quercy says:

    Definitively something BIG is coming at WM, Target and TRU…. Maybe a BIG joke but it will be BIG 🙂

  • DDD says:

    My nearest Walmart is going through this now. Also, they had a ton of the holiday packs (Guido 5-packs and Sarge 4-packs only, no more of the Boost ones) for $5, and the Wrastlin’ playset on clearance for $21 (like Target’s had it). That thing was just too much at $30.

  • BMW says:

    Met said, “be sure and go to the right WM.”

    Just as the pics Met posted, the newer “Green” remodeled Walmarts here have fewer pegs/aisles for toys. The manager at one new green Walmart told me they do not carry near the toys stock as the other Walmarts. I now know which Walmarts to avoid, as we have 3 of those redesigned ones nearby.

  • I-am-speed says:

    I told the WM toy manager at our nearest store, straight to his face, that after the way WM has treated Cars(slow/poor replenishment, old stock, etc.) that I hope WM gets NO exclusives or other special treatment with regards to Cars 2. I told him that this store in particular has been a joke regarding Cars merchandise, and that I truly hope and and all exclusives go to TRU and Target, as they’ve at least tried to keep stock at a decent level as the popularity of Cars merchandise increased over time since the original movie’s release.

    I should note that this store also started their “reset” about 10 days before Christmas, pulling all shelf tags on the Cars/Matchbox/Hot Wheels, etc. aisle and basically letting everything sit bare and in total disarray.

    This store had not begun any part of the reset merchandise restock, not even the plan-o-grams, as of Monday.

    Thornton, CO
    I noticed on these resets implement week as 1/10/11. Does that mean the reset has started?

  • collectormom says:

    The WM by me is nothing but empty pegs, and 1 Octane Gain cab. Looks very sad. But I did find some 1/2 price Lego sets in the clearance section so all is not lost

  • John in Missouri says:

    Has anyone seen plain ol’ Doc Hudson Shake ‘n’ Go lately? I’m talking like the last 2-3 years? Ever since Fabulous Hudson Hornet came out, Doc seems to have been retired.

  • jestrjef says:

    These are all over our Walmarts down here in Florida. Most stores had started this past weekend. I hope to see something NEW pop out on the pegs when they finish. Guess we shall see. There are a few stores that NEEEEEED to recognized that some of the lenticulars & toons have been on the pegs for over a YEAR. They need to be clearanced out on an item by item basis, but probably too much to ask for. Most stores should be finished up with the reset this weekend. 🙂

    • Micky says:

      I haven’t seen this yet at any of the 3/4 Walmart’s I go to here. The pegs and shelves have been pretty bare, except for oldies, for a few weeks. Looking forward to seeing some new stuff soon.
