Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Retail Says – We Go By Money, Not No Calendar

CARS 2 CARS are appearing every which but loose.

It might be easier to list the stores where you cannot find CARS 2 CARS.

The IRS Store
Larry’s Banjo Barn
The Toothpick Party Store
Raw Milk R Us
& MuleRental.com (though I hear they are getting in 3 packs so check back in)

Many supermarkets should get one of these … plus get a free backpack for buying CARS 2 CARS … humm, in 3-6 weeks, I’ll expect to see the new Guiness record holder for most redeemed backpacks …

It looks like WM will get an exclusive LIGHT & SOUNDS – Spy Mater (aka: mater with weapons). You can view a demo of the first wave of releases from our post HERE.

Some assembly required.

Some of the first wave.

The Finn Gear Up & Go looks like hours of play and assembly – disassembly …

So, last, last, last chance to get some CARS 1 CARS … though at $8.45, you might not need to really, really hurry.

Thought Kmart.com still has the rubber tire 3-pack still in stock at $11.99 AND now there is free ship to store so if they don’t ship you the right item, just move 2-feet to the left to return department 🙂

Kmart.com doesn’t have a lot left but the lenticular Ferrari F430 3-pack with Antonio & Costanza … plus a few playsets. Not clearance priced but harder to find now.

And the Mack as carrying case has been updated to Dinoco 400 graphics …

And I can’t imagine why a junkyard fridge playset didn’t sell (not CARS).

Thanks Mariela, MackDaddy, & Dacar for the nice photos.

    Just came back from khols & scored all 3 launchers. They also had all 3 of the 3 packs but I passed on those !!The launchers at khols were $11.00 each & the 3 packs were about $14.00 each !!

  • I really want that Mater! Also, I might get Gear up and Go Finn McMissile.

    Met, you forgot SDCC 2011 Mattel booth

  • DDD says:

    Just got back from my second-closest Kohl’s…SCORE! It was so neat to round that corner and see everything out (as someone said yesterday). They had the three-packs, a lot of singles, pull-backs, the big sound/lights Mater and McQueen, and a neat playset with Finn, the doctor, and even a crane! (It’s amazing how close the plastic and diecast versions look…I had to study Finn to see he wasn’t diecast.)

    Everything was oddly discounted, but it amounted to a little more than 25% off. (The singles were $3.60.) After soaking it all in, I only picked up a Grem! The three-packs were tempting, but I didn’t want another Mater and McQueen to get the bus, and even though the other two sets had all the other singles I want first (Dr., Grem, Acer, and Petrov…I got a Finn a while back on eBay), I didn’t want the deluxe Finn or Holly, so even on sale it would cost more than waiting for singles (Grem was the only one they had of the four). But still…what a great line!

    After stopping at a CVS and finding Submarine Finn I checked the K-Mart next door for new releases. Their pegs were loaded with the Cars 2 singles which I grabbed 1 of each. At the check-out it rang up as “not available for sale”. The girl told me she couldn’t sell them to me to which I replied “then why are they on the sales floor?” She said I had a point so she scanned a nail file from the last chance aisle and sold them to me for $3.99 each. Target and Walmart are the only 2 retailers not selling the Cars 2 items.

    • Eric says:

      Actually Cars 2 have been found on the floor and bought at both Target and Walmart as well. We found the movie moments (not the exclusive ones) at Walmart today as a matter of fact. Thanks sodabear for the hot tip!

    • Mariela says:

      Good that she sold them to you!
      We scored Cars 2 in 3 stores this week..
      We got today at Walmart some movie moments, and on tuesday the singles at the grocery store, and mega sizes at CVS!! 😀

  • TarheelBill says:

    MET…So since there seems to be no information at all given in regards to Cars 1 and the Cars 2 Tsunami is already covering the globe, should we assume that there is no chance, no way, no how for us to ever see, other than Ebay, those Cars 1 Singles, Chase, Final Laps, Deluxe Size and Haulers that were released or were to be released at the end of the Cars 1 line??? Seems like we, who just wanted to finish out our Cars 1 collections have been hung out to dry. I have heard from more than one who say they “won’t get suckered in a second time”. 😉

    • quercy says:

      As far as I know, Matell are done with the distribution on CARS 1. No, you won’t see the international edition or any expected “missing” cars get released by our main stores. However some third parties may have put their hands on some part of what the manufacture have produced at one point but that’s it for line 1. Matell have done this several time in their history with other products and will continue to do. Welcome to their world!

  • jestrjef says:

    Love that Mater!! A Must have!! 🙂

    • bobbyjack says:

      Can’t pass up a Mater with two machine guns. Never thought our Cars characters would start committing drive-bys.

    • bobbyjack says:

      If all the Walmarts are putting their Cars stuff out, I’m sure Target will be forced to follow along. Can’t give the competition a 10 day head start on selling out their inventory.

  • cac1959 says:

    I wonder if there is any truth to a rumor that launch date is being moved up a week?

    I’ve only see Cars2 toys at 3 stores… but am hoping to find them at others shortly…

    The good news about the early release has been not having to buy on eBay and spreading out my purchases by starting early… the bad news is I am spending more money than I’d anticipated… and I’m sure I’m not the only one…

    I agree about the 1:55 diecast Lights and Sounds Cars being cool… I also bought a large Lights and Sounds Mater earlier this week – it is nice but I may take it back… it’s awfully big…

  • Rollerwings says:

    Aren’t we supposed to be encouraging people to take the doors off old fridges before disposing of them AND discouraging kids from playing with them? Bad idea for a playset, IMHO.

  • DDD says:

    The regular L&S Mater was at cvs yesterday for just $7.99. Amazingly like the regular diecast, not obviously different in some weird way. So they look good among the regular diecast, unlike the lenticulars. I like these!!

  • John in Missouri says:

    Wow, hard to believe the official Launch Date is only 10 days away!

    And the movie is only 7 weeks away!!

  • John in Missouri says:

    Met, you can cross Raw Milk R Us off the list — I just found singles from Case E & Case F there on the way to work this morning.
