Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Plenty of Stock at Plus Pricing

There’s still plenty of CARS 1 CARS on the shelves in Europe …

It’s a puzzler as to why there’s plenty of CARS 1 CARS still on the shelves …

Hey, is that the real price?

1 € is 1.46 USD today …

$20.37 …

$26.21 – yikes … is there also like 20% VAT tax?

What do you mean you don’t want to pay $13.84 for Lug & Nutty?

Er, thanks for the France retail pics, “David V.” – so let’s salute all our European and International collectors!

Looks like there are idiots worldwide … though I thought people wanted Finish Line McQueen?

Of course, if you’re trapped in a snowbank town and be forced to shop at CVS, it’s like being in Paris …

I’m still puzzled by the YOU PAY thing on their tags … were people confused by a dollar sign followed by a number with a decimal point? Excuse me, is X-785443271-4 the price or $8.49?

Last week, they did have a sale …

And if you need a lot of Spare O Mint launchers …

Priced just like being in EU …

Happy shopping!

    pricing in europe inclusive salestax

  • gipsy_02 says:

    Yes, these are exactly the prices we pay here in Germany for cars as well. Glad I found some great people here on the board who are willing to help my son with his collection. Thanks to all of them.

    I saw those 3 pack where “idiots” took out Finish Line McQueen instead of King…weird! The King must be hard to find in Europe..I guess?

  • Dolly says:

    Well, here in Austria, we pay for Haulers at our Supermarket and other shops €19,90, at TRS they are €14,99 but they have only Paul Valdez and Gil at the moment.
    In other hand, we pay for a Deluxe, in one of our stores €11,99 and at our Supermarket €12,99. The single ones between €6,99 and €7,99 and the 3er packs also for €19,99.
    I try to avoid the Toy Shops because they are much expensive there. I remember i saw Mack Trailer for about €34,99, almost had a Heart attack 🙁
    In other hand, i should be happy to leave in the cheapest European Country for Cars 🙂

    18 euros ($26.00) for a Brian, is way too much. Received 2 Brians from the UK for a lot less through a trade. With shipping they were much less than 26.00 per car.

  • LUCA says:

    25,90 euros for 1 hauler is a good price!!!
    i see them at 30 euro,usually….

    I would give my right leg for that PT Flea and Flik!!!!

  • ScoobyDoo says:

    Now you know why we don’t buy each car twice like most of you seem to do ;-(

  • bobbyjack says:

    If they raised them to these prices, people would still collect them because they are pieces of art. You just wouldn’t be able to afford as many. We collect Thomas wooden engines as well but at 3 times the price of Cars, for every one Thomas engine we have, we have 10 Disney Cars.

    • Stig McQueen says:

      The die cast Thomas trains are about on par with the Mattel CARS price-wise. Much easier to collect than the wooden ones. Stig Jr. has a whole bunch of them.

      • bobbyjack says:

        Since he doesn’t drive on the track, we got a die-cast Bertie the bus. Very nice. Somebody had bought my son a Thomas and Percy wooden starter set when his little sister was born on Thanksgiving of ’09. Then he got a whole bunch of wooden engines for Christmas that year. I knew the die-cast were less expensive but were not compatable with the wooden tracks. So I looked for something else to collect for him that Christmas. I kept seeing these toy cars on the pegs that said LOOK! My Eyes Change! I thought, hey that looks pretty cool. We had just watched the movie together last week and he really liked it. So I started buying him the Cars and here we are today.

    I always felt for international collectors….
    I am glad you posted this info.

  • cac1959 says:

    Ouch is right… I stopped at the local Kmart last night… they had 2 dozen lightyear launchers… Lil Torquey Pistons, View Zeen, and other pegwarmers at way too expensive of a price… they had a few old WOC launchers too that were well over $10 each… Plenty of Octane Gain Semis… nothing that the can sell at full retail price…

    • I-am-speed says:

      Kmart had their singles running at $1.99 for at least 2 weeks(a “Price Drop”), ending the weekend before this as I recall. That had to have helped to move a few Cars in some stores.

  • 5oclockshadow says:

    with the way the dollar is dropping in value, these prices may come to the US soon.
