Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS 2: Buying Check List & Matrix

This version includes an updated to the singles that should be available by the time the film opens on June 24 so some of the new additions might not be part of the first wave available on May 16, 2011 but will be available soon after – including – yes, Ramone Hi-Lo though I’m not sure if that will still be his name and or if he’ll be lime green or purple.


Plus, Miles Axelrod joins the list of singles – not a startling addition …

This revised check list & buying matrix now includes the corrected 3-packs and the newly added Target only 4-packs.

First person to 10 open Lightning McQueen with Racing Wheels WINS! 🙂

I also dropped “Sebastian,” it’s unclear if that was the original name of Raoul or if there really is a ‘Sebastian,’ in either case, it does not appear ‘Sebastian’ is coming out in the first waves and even if he does exist as a character, he won’t be out until later.

Next – 5 packs, 7 packs, and 10-packs and then I believe the buying matrix is complete.

… Well – wave 1 & 2.

    i hate to burst anyones bubble but hi lo ramone does not go up or down.

  • John says:

    Excellent choice of cars for the display but due the money’s tight I was looking foreward the car collection but I’ve found the Ertl to the Transformers to the micro machine cars to the piggy bank cars first of the difficult spending but the Hot Wheels to the Johnny Lightning and the Chevron cars might be interesting with the Disney pixar cars after the budget of the other toys will be covered after the budget’s done thank you

  • rj says:

    I thought cars 2 cars were not coming out until May but there are some out at one of our local stores now.

  • Lorri says:

    I have been waiting for Hi-Lo forever!!!!

  • quercy says:

    I am getting almost scared of how fast these new cars will be removed from the pegs on May 16th… Tonight I have set my 27inch monitor background with the TripTych high resolution… So coool. My 4 years old enter the room and let a huge WOW come out and run to sit on my lap and the first character he has finger pointed is the double deck bus and asked me “Who’s that papa? I love it” I knew it! I knew kids will instantly fall in love with that icon vehicle and many non-collectors will buy it just because it is “THE” double deck…. Be ready guys never hunting will be so exciting and I expect a little elbow game in some alleys… 😉

    saw the singles, 2 packs and launchers in a boutique store in Hilton head, SC (shelter Cove)…prices were totally off base…9.95 for singles…22.95 for 2 packs…26.95 for launchers…hilarios…passed on them all…but it was great to see them all in person…(not that MET’s photos aren’t awesome or anything :))…
    anxiously waiting for May!

    • Dunroamin says:

      MET, came across Mater with Zen master (2 pack)…the package said “exclusive vehicle”…exclusive to who? Any thoughts or does it mean only avilable in the 2 pack…meaning no single?

      (MET: Yes, it looks like all 2-packs will contain an “exclusive’ vehicle … how exclusive is hard to say – it might be different rims as in the McQ’s, a different expression, a different part (Finn with Weapon) or a CAR available nowhere else – hard to say).

      • John in Missouri says:

        Yes, not a single, so exclusive to that 2-pack. Those prices are nuts!!

      • cac1959 says:

        The exclusive vehicles in the 2 packs are:
        Brent Mustangburger (comes with Darrell Cartrip)
        Tomber (comes with Finn McMissile)
        Uncle Topolino (comes with Guido and Luigi)
        Damaged Rod Torque Redline (comes with Grem)
        Zen Master Pitty (comes with Race Team Mater)
        Lightning McQueen with Party Wheels (comes with Francesco Bernoulli)

        They are exclusive until Mattel releases them at another time.

  • Hostile Takeover Banker says:

    Off topic but I had the small luxury of seeing a Cars 2 preview at the cinema today and it looked and sounded so awesome on the big screen. I was bursting with anticipation of seeing this film before but now even more so.

  • cac1959 says:

    Well, I now know that I won’t be able to buy everything that may come out on May 16th on May 16th… I am crossing the 7 pack off my list… for me, that 7 pack for $29.99 at Target is an easy pass… Carla, Raoul, McQueen, Francesco, and Race Team Mater, Sarge, and Fillmore – all available as singles.

    And I’m hearing the Carly Simon song “Anticipation” in my head… with new lyrics… “It’s saturation… It’s saturation… Mattel’s making me broke… making me crazy…”

  • pwschuh says:

    Why isn’t HI/LO Ramone a CARS 1 release??

    (MET: The rational was that they thought he was too small to fit in the deluxe lineup and just didn’t fit into the singles release plan … so presumably he appears jacked up and ready for action in CARS 2 …).

  • Man-I-Fold says:

    Cool! Thanks, Met!

  • VDC says:

    jezeez…this will be a costly weekend right before Mothers Day

  • MWH80 says:

    I’m gonna play conspiracy theorist, and assume that Miles is somehow in league with Prof. Z. All this ‘Allinol’ and clean energy promotion is a scheme to cripple the world of Cars, and then force them to pay huge prices to guzzle gas again.

    • bobbyjack says:

      Kind of like the oil companies today?
      “It’s a conspiracy, man!”

    • boogity says:

      miles is voiced by I think, eddie izzard, now he is the man (although he does dress as a woman at times), met eddie in the airport and he is a top bloke, he also ran umteen marathons round the uk a couple of years ago, total respect

  • cac1959 says:

    Thanks for the work on this great list… I’m almost feeling that there’s too much coming out too soon… but not soon enough… 25 or 26 days…

  • BMW says:

    I am going to wait to put together a strategic buying plan until the 5 packs 7 pack and 10 pack contents are added.

  • Shelby says:

    “Holy crap!”

  • bobbyjack says:

    Who is Sonia?

  • jestrjef says:

    Thanks for the wonderful check list Met!! Awesome work. 🙂

  • bobbyjack says:

    Why no Rip Clutchgonski? Maybe one of the Kmart racers?

    (MET: Rip might be ‘Sebastian.’ (name changed?)).

  • John in Missouri says:

    Hi and Lo Ramone will be cool, but seems so out of place now. At least make him Lime Green!

  • Indykjt says:

    Well… ummm… where to start??? WOW!!! This is gonna be a fun (and expensive) ride!!! Can’t wait!!!
