Disney Pixar D23 Expo: Finn McMissile, CARS Presentation + Rest

The event runs 3-days, you can buy tickets by day or for all three days.

For CARS 2, Mattel has created a Finn McMissile.

No additional photos but here’s a shot of the outside PAPER box. Yes, it looks like wood but no, it’s not a mini wood crate …

Original post HERE.

You can pre-order at Matty to pick up at Mattel’s booth at the D2 Expo. There is an apparent limit of 6 pre-orders and your credit card info has to match your badge. But beyond that, you should be able to place as many separate orders as you can handle.

They will also sell these at the Mattel booth – of course, pre-ordering means you can pick them up at your leisure any of the three days but at SDCC, they managed to screw that up and some people were left holding a voucher and no merchandise because they sold out or couldn’t figure out the correct inventory.

Keep in mind this is NOT SDCC and there will not be 120,000 people. Most people going are Disney-Disneyana fans and there are shows, presentations and events going on all day to pull people away from the shopping areas.

I have no idea how many they produced but for geeks, I can tell you there’s 16 to a case.

So, what day should you go?

Obviously, if you’re most interested in buying merchandise, you can be pretty safe going on Friday.
