Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: The Everything Released Complete Open Check List 2006 to 2011 (v1.1)

Since we are closing in on the end of CARS Diecast – here is the nearly everything under the Sun released – complete checklist – Mainline singles-oversized-exclusives & haulers.

Expanded Universe complete checklist coming tomorrow.

I totally disregarded the numbering systems of the oversized-haulers, etc as they are just confusing – only the singles numbering system is considered.

There is a key at the end along with some additional notes. Note, this is an OPENER checklist so packaging variants are not considered.

Note: Updated as some lenticulars were not updated correctly – thanks Nikko & Mr. Brownstone for the reminder. This is now version 1.1 of the checklist – for classic collectors, only Rollin’ Bowling Mater was updated so this version won’t make much of a difference.

If anything was released on a card (I counted 3-packs as a ‘card’ also since they started out that way), it is listed as such even if many-most people might’ve bought them first in a box set. For example, most of the Piston Cup racers are listed as available ‘on card’ even though for most people, they probably bought them as launchers or in box sets before the rubber tire versions were released.

Conveniently there are 8 Final Laps on the To-Be-Released List and 8 “empty” unassigned numbers.

Only significant variants are listed (with description). There are certainly others that are variants and of course, you are free to collect them and add them to this list but I decided if you cannot see the difference from 2-feet away, it’s not considered significant. I do not considered accessory variants as variants worthy of listing here.

If I count correctly, there are 290 releases – though while I did not list them separately, you can add 33 rubber tire CARS to the the count for a “basic set” of 323 CARS. I’m going on the presumption that if you bought the Motor Speedway of the South, you either purchased a full set along the way (via launchers, box sets, etc) (minus the Apple CAR) or the rubber tire versions.

Some repeat Pitty’s where the eyes may be slightly different positions are not “re-count” or listed as a variant – however, if they came with a different body shape or tool, the are listed.

“Oversized” is only listed to differentiate it from the smaller release.

Special circumstance notes:

Kori Turbowitz was only available in the US on a WM card version but as an opener collector, the international movie moment 2-pack version is exactly the same CAR.

There were three CHASE CARS that were packaging only – Ferrari F430, Mario Andretti & Chuki so out of packaging, they are not really CHASE CARS and identical to the normal releases so they are subtracted from the overall releases.

While #78 Hugo Fast – Nitroade Pitty was not technically called that on the international only Nitroade Crew Chief & Pitty box set, that is essentially Hugo Fast so he is listed as such.

There are 101 Lenticular releases – yes, there are eye variants and changes so while technically, there are a few dozen more for the ultra completist, I think 101 is a acceptable number for a “complete set” of lenticulars. This does includes Artie & the Luigi-Guido with Paint.

Finish Line McQueen is listed even though he was released in a box set where he was labeled as Tongue Lightning McQueen – an error.

So, we currently stand at 323 + 8 Final Laps + Barry Diesel + Haulers?

Though of course, for anyone collecting since 2006 – you probably would’ve had to sell or give away another 100+ open CARS that were double or many more from box sets and suchΒ  to get to 323. πŸ™‚

  • gabriel says:

  • babychristianscars says:

    I have almost all of them, missing a few final laps of course. Can’t believe it al started with 8 little cars and trying to find a way to celebrate/remember my tiniest angel’s birthday. I just got the first cars 2 cars today and while they are cool, they do not bring the memories of those very first cars and why I got started in this collection.

  • Ryan says:

    MET, what about Stu Bop and Brian?

  • L8rM8r says:

    This list just scares me knowing how many of these are at home on the shelf, being played with, in boxes etc. Whenever I see the volume and size of it all it is pretty overwhelming and glad I got in around the end of the Supercharged line or it would have been so hard to catch up. Another amazing list thanks Met.

  • quercy says:

    I was going trough these checklists and I need some help so know how to know which card, if different, has the variant

    Boost color rim different
    Rescue Squad Trooper correct grill (how I know mine is correct or other?)


    (MET: You can read about Boost HERE and Trooper HERE Also note, Axel Accelerator is available with no tampo ‘window frame’ and without so if you’re collecting all variants).

  • Teekay421 says:

    Thanks for another great list – always appreciated and helpful to let me know where I stand. Am I right that chase Guido and Luigi are #171 & #172? If so, I think there are only seven gaps left to be filled (excluding those we already know we’re missing).

  • jmularczyk says:

    Met can you please add these checklists to the “Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast Cars Recap page” link on the right side of the homepage? It looks like the area of the site has been neglected for quite some time but it sure would be nice to have one place to go to find this checklist about a week from now when I’m trying ot find it but can’t.

    (MET: Yea, I should update that page – I wasn’t sure anyone was looking πŸ™‚ ).

    • jmularczyk says:

      I’ve been looking at it for years!! It would be pretty awesome if you could update it. I know your busy but you’ve done soooooo many checklists since this was updated. It would be nice to have them all together.

    • jmularczyk says:

      for instance I alway have trouble knowing where I’m at as far as final lap cars go. It’s been quite awhile since I found anything new that I’ve kind of given up.

    • taylor says:

      Definately needs update……i look at that a lot hoping it might be updated, and this list is a must!

      Thanks MET!

  • PVHauler_16 says:

    Hugo was released on ROR. And Chase Mario was chase with red rims.
    As an opener, why’d the other 2 pack chases have to have numbers. Now I’ve got gaps. What about Wrecked Hornet? Will we ever see the chases with fixed eyes?

  • buckland-blowouts says:

    Way to go… guess this first one is in the can, eh???

    (MET: If you put a big checkmark – no one will notice. πŸ™‚ ).

  • Jinzo says:

    Thankz MET! Always love the lists πŸ˜€

  • MrBrownstone says:

    As a mainly Lenticular collection I’ve looked through what cars I could get as Lenticular and…..I have almost all of them except a few “variants”.

    I’ve also gone through the list of what was not listed as available as lenticulars, yet I have them as lenticualrs….. These cars are:

    41 RPM
    66 Tar Lightening McQueen (was released as part of a 3 pack with Red & Sally)
    126 Marlon “Clutches” McKay
    127 Lightening McQueen with Cone
    133 Duff Wrecks
    148 – Flo with Tray (was released as part of a 3 pack with Waitress Mia & Tia)
    Dash Boardman (I think…)

    Happy to be proved wrong, but I’m pretty confident…

    I’ll have to count how many I have…

    (MET: Yea, I realized I skipped a page of lenticulars listings in copying them from another sheet so I’ll fix. Thanks).

    • MrBrownstone says:


      Just Seen that Dash Boardman is on the list twice (once as number 137 – and then almost opposite, un-numbered…)

      Also Tar LMQ wasn’t released as Lenticular, I was confusing him with Wet LMQ, apologies….

  • Mariela says:

    You rock Met!! Thanks for this awesome list… 8)

  • LUCA says:

    Fantastico Met..Thank you!

  • HOOKEDonMATER says:

  • taylor says:

    Fantastic list.. cant believe that i still need around 30 to finish the collection.

    • ScoobyDoo says:

      Finish the collection….optimist. πŸ˜‰

      • taylor says:

        Thanks to some great people who collect cars i would like to think i will…Eventually get all the releases.
        Done not too bad getting 303cars considering i live in the UK.

      • taylor says:

        Met Is there a link to the pictures you probably have of peoples collections?

        Now were getting close to the final releases it would be great to get a look at and get some ideas from other peoples displays etc.


        (MET: We have a FLIKR pool page where there are some collection photos).

  • Nial says:

    This is great and heaps alot with checking with what I have and don’t have. Thanks for the hard work and looking forward to the expanded universe list as well.

  • cac1959 says:

    That’s a lot of Cars!

    I know I did not purchase the Octane Gain Semi… and I passed on a few of the lenticular singles and 3 packs… but I believe I have most everything else that’s been released… No wonder I’ve filled 7 display cases and 5 bookcases…

    Thanks for the list, Met!

  • John in Missouri says:

    I love this site!!!

  • Hostile Takeover Banker says:

    One great post. Thanks Met! And thanks to everyone who helped fill in the spots needed in my collection.

  • bobbyjack says:

    We will only have 168 of these if all our pending trades go through. I wonder if the Toons would put us over 200? So we have averaged about 13 a month since we started. Not too bad. I could think of worse hobbies…

  • Micky says:

    OMG…so that’s what’s in all those rubber storage bins in the studio LOL πŸ˜‰

  • jestrjef says:

    Met …. you are amazing … my jaw hit the desk as I started reading this … I really have ALL of these …. WOWOWOWOW … and to think it all started with 12 little cars … what a fantastic ride!! Ready for round two!! πŸ˜€
