Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2: Disney D23 Exclusive Submarine Finn McMissile

D23 is Disney’s own “fan expo.” It’s August 19-21 at the Anaheim Convention Center. John Lasseter & Pixar will present on Saturday, I think.

This year, they are offering a Toy Story item (Woody) and for CARS 2, Submarine Finn McMissile.

This, of course is a scene from early in the movie where Finn drops in the ocean & releases his tires. You get three “floating’ tires …

Finn is also Double Ransburg- metallic paint.

MattyCollector.com will offer a pre-sale but THEY WILL NOT SHIP IT.

You can ONLY pick it up at D23.

Repeat – You can preorder but ONLY for pickup at D23.

Available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com from 8/8/11 9 a.m. PT through 8/12/11 11:59 p.m. PT, while supplies last. There are no refunds and pre-orders must be picked-up at D23 Expo. Limit 6.

# Your credit card will be charged and a confirmation email voucher will be sent.

# Bring a printout of your email voucher, the credit card you used for the transaction and your identification to the Mattel booth in the Disney Living Pavilion.

# Pick up your product between open of show Friday 8/19/11 and close of show Sunday 8/21/11.

# Products cannot be shipped. This option is for pick-up at the D23 Expo only.

# All sales are final. There are NO REFUNDS so please be sure you can personally pick up your purchase(s) at D23 Expo no later than close of show.

You can check our previous post when there was discount D23 Expo tickets. (You can join the D23 Club but you do not need to join D23 to buy D23 Expo tickets).

So, who’s making a list?

    Submarine Finn is not double Ransburg paint. Where did Mattel say he was?
    Was that stated on Matty Collector?

    (MET: It must’ve been in the P Release … ).

        I found it. The words “double ransburg” originally used on Matty collector.com for the D23 Sub floating Finn. (see the blurb below from the original posting on Matty) and then later edited, but not edited fast enough, because other websites on August 9, picked up and posted the original blurb. eg., like Pixar Times, and here at Take5ADay.
        So it really started with Matty..
        See the wording below

        These two collectibles are currently available for pre-order on mattycollector.com for $19.99. However, all pre-orders must be picked up at the show and are not available for shipping. (UPDATE: The Finn McMissile has sold through its pre-orders. It is only available for sale at the show now.)

    • BMW says:

      I found it on Pixar Times, and the ad blurb DID state double ransburg. So Mattel must have changed it after other websites already copied the original wording.

      I don’t know why, but glad they gave the dark blue Finn, which really does look like a double ransburg.

  • NascarFan says:

    If anyone still wants on the Buyers List for D 23 items now is the time.

    Buyers List will be closing soon

    nascarnbroncosfans@msn,com

  • Bumper Save says:

    The only good thing I can see coming out of this is that the car will be in good condition, not all beat up like the way it gets when Matty ships them.

    • DDD says:

      That’s no guarantee…it’s still luck-of-the-draw when it comes to scratches and flaws on the eyes and finish. By the way, is this an acrylic case or plastic?

      • NascarFan says:

        looks like it is going to be a heavy plastic. At least we can see if the car is inside it or not.

        Unlike the drama going on with the 2011 SDCC Back to the Future cars NOT being in the boxes.

        Yeap, a bunch were sent out with NO De Lorean and no display case, just an empty box.

  • Refriedbeans says:

    If the site operators don’t mind I would like to share a story with the members of the site. Recently I became very interested in the changing eyes line from 2010. So naturally I decided to go to Big Lots. Upon arriving in the Cars section I found many wonderful cars my eyes have never gazed upon. But somethings I found were disgusting and weird. First I found a nearly destroyed Chick Hicks out of the package and with a price sticker placed on his roof (they wanted $3.00 for him). I then found a three pack with some gum stuck to it (nasty). But the last and worse thing I found was a Nitroade hauler opened (torn) missing the trailer. Big lots seems to not care about the products they sell in their stores. Or maybe it’s just my store. Well that’s all I have to say. Also if anyone has a Five Below store check it out I found CHASE Mater with hood and Flo with tray ($3.50 each)!

  • kdthomas says:

    If you’re willing to pay an extra $47 for one of these I’ll pick you one up on Saturday. Limit is 6 per person. If interested email me at kdthomas1@hotmail.com

  • Mariela says:

    I will gladly go, but the problem is that you can only pick up 6??
    Is it 6 at a time, I mean, I grab 6 then 2 hs. later can I go back and grab another 6? Or is it just 6 per day?

    I don’t know how this works, but will try to buy as many as we can..
    We need more SoCal member to join in; like Marcus, Henry, John, Julia, Christine…c’mon people!! πŸ™‚

    Another question, you have to pay to get it, or just you go and that’s it? I never heard of D23 Expo…what is it?
    And who pays for them? You people order them online and then I’ll just pick up or I have to pay directly there?

    • NascarFan says:

      it should work the same as SDCC. Maybe. you should be able to get 6 per person with you in line, then immediately return and get another 6. It will more than likely be a counter like SDCC does, but as far as the presale I am not sure, however, I was able to place multiple orders.

      People should be Pre paying you Mariela. Do not forget the costs of Paypal and their Mafia cut, parking and some for tickets, and of course gas.

      • NascarFan says:

        One other thing, be prepared to do nothing BUT getting these items FIRST. if you do not then you run the risk of them being sold out. Also if you Presale buy them on Mattycollector.com you also run the risk of NOT getting them if you wait to long to pick them up.

        For instance: 2011 SDCC over at the Marriot several hundred people did NOT get their pre paid items. They are supposed to get a refund and then another person states they will ship them.

        Be prepared for this also:

        Last SDCC trips that I made for TFAD and CTT people totaled about 184 items and then another one was about 238 items.

        Prepare for ALOT of boxes

    • John says:

      Mariela, it is $47 per adult to get in. $12 to park at the Anaheim Convention Center. (kids are, I think, $37, age 3-12) The pre-order is tied to your credit card (6/card), don’t know if they will try to police the limit at the show and how they would do that. It comes out to about $42/Finn if you assume $10 shipping cost to the end buyer and don’t take any mark-up for your time, gas, etc.

      There is some precedent that if they don’t all sell they will show up at the Mattel Outlet stores after a while.

      • NascarFan says:

        6 per pre order. I bet you will be able to pre order a few times. Simultaneously on two computers. SDCC presale I could hit mutilple orders on the same computer

        (MET: It does say 6 per person and since you have to pickup, they clearly know who you are but that might just be a standard disclamer. I hope to have more answers tomorrow or soon …).

        • Mariela says:

          Ok that’s my question, so I get there and what do I show them that I have “pre-order items” ?
          You guys each are going to order 6 because of the limit? I mean I send 6 items per order and then you distribute them between your buyers..how do it? They are not going to make any trouble to me because I’m getting 100 items at once?

        • Mariela says:

          Yes please..let me know Met, because this is driving me crazy!

          • BMW says:

            Mariela, it says:

            # Bring a printout of your email voucher, the credit card you used for the transaction and your identification to the Mattel booth in the Disney Living Pavilion.

            So I don’t see how someone else could preorder for themselves, and you pick up for them.

      • oliversmom says:

        + $2.50 per ticket – handling fees

  • Stig McQueen says:

    Cool packaging, but in the end that’s all it really is — the packaging. I’m sure Finn looks great in double-Ransburg, but I’m fine with the Deluxe version that I already have.

  • John in Missouri says:

    Wow, so much demand for Finn McMissile???

    • Jack says:

      John you should know the deal by now. Collecting them all is a way of life for many. Collecting can become very obsessive and compulsive.
      Yes in reality it’s only another Submarine Finn but a different packaging and or finish is more than enough variation to make some want this.

      • John in Missouri says:

        Yeah I know, but FINN McMISSILE? At least SDCC Mater’s fire ladder was operational, but this thing would have to be a full-fledged working water toy for me to look twice.

    • BuddhaMike says:

      You know, I can’t find a Finn McMissile anywhere! I’ve checked Walmart, Target, Kmart, TRU, and still no Finn’s. They must not have made very many of them. It’s like Nurse GTO very rare…

      … of course you know I’m just kidding, right? πŸ˜‰

      I was really looking forward to an SDCC car this year, and then NOTHING. So for the D23 release I was hoping for something really cool. Finn is NOT it. And it’s even harder to get one than an SDCC because you cannot order it online. And as much as I didn’t want another “Mater” exclusive, I think Mater with guns and a rocket pack would have been better than Sub-Finn. In a way, I’m happy with my disappointment. It’s one less car I have to have for my collection. Well, at least until I realize later that I have to have it πŸ˜‰

  • rpag says:

    I am in if someone can get me two! Kevin, email sent!

    I agree he does not look like a double Ransburg paint job. Could the picture be a prototype?

  • NascarFan says:

    I can go, but I have no vacation saved up.

    I will find out if anyone else from the Utah group can go and get some of these

    nascarnbroncosfans@msn.com

  • hostile takeover banker says:

    This is nice and I would really like one 2. I am hoping (as many others are) that someone is nice enough to get some of these at close to cost for Take5 members and supporters. Please don’t make this an ebay fiasco.

    So who is making the list????

    • NascarFan says:

      I am making reservations right now for leaving Salt lake City, Utah on friday the 19th of august right after work, and getting there strictly for Saturday and Sunday at the D23 expo and jump back on the road here Sunday at noon from Anaheim, California to get back to Salt Lake City, Utah Sunday night and be ready to get to work on monday.

      11 – 12 hour drive each way.

      I would need to add gas and ticket costs to these. Say 9.00 each?

      If you want to jump on a list, I guess I can always forward the list to someone in case I cannot make it.

      nascarnbroncosfansATmsn.com

      But someone needs to start a list anyway.

      • hostile takeover banker says:

        Sounds like a massive ask. I’ll support you but hopefully someone else closer can get on board to do it. Nonetheless I take my hat off to you for your generosity and willingness to help others.

      • hostile takeover banker says:

        Still can’t access forum links either. πŸ™

      • NascarFan says:

        So far the amount of people we have these are going to be right about 41.25 each PLUS shipping.

        The more people we have on this list the better, brings down the price per item.

        I am hoping to get it under 39.00 each

        Lets bring the price down some.

        • NascarFan says:

          Okay here goes:

          Mariela is going to take the list of people I have compiled so far.

          This makes it cheaper yet for those of you that asked me. Saves you a few bucks here n there.

          After the math it comes out to about 37.00 a pop PLUS shipping….

          You will be asked to PRE PAY by regular Paypal payments NOT GIFT

          You will have shipping billed to later as I have done in the past.

          I have my email address here for anyone who wants to get on the list and I will be here to help you help her out.

          nascarnbroncosfansATmsn.com

          • Mariela says:

            Ok people!! I’m not emailing anyone asking if you want to buy it or not, just email Kevin and he’ll add you to the list.
            Hopefully I can order them without any troubles..wish me luck!!
