Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS 2: Next 4-Packs + Crew Chief Check List

The next four packs are listed.

I predict there will not be much rejoicing.

Plus Raoul’s Caroule’s Crew Chief … Bruno Motoreau

He is/was scheduled as a KM 2-pack – is he still? The 4-packs have NOT contained any exclusive CARS so far – will that change?

(and yes, that is the “puzzle” Raoul Caroule – I was too lazy to look for the other one).


And the other “new” 4-pack?

+ Nigel Gearsley Crew Chief.

I think if I recall, it’s actually a MINI COOPER – kind of hard to tell from this but I vaguely recall noting that while I was watching the film. Is my memory right?

So, who’s left? Lewis Hamilton’s Crew Chief …

I’m presuming his crew chief is “British,” also – too tall for any Astin Martin’s – a Lotus?

And it looks like Max Schnell’s crew chief is a Porsche? (logical – German and Pixar has the license to do Porsche cars in CARS).

Miguel Camino’s crew chief is probably an Opel since Pixar has an advertising deal with Opel for CARS/CARS 2 – though technically, there are a lot of EU econobox hatchbacks.

Shu Todoroki’s Crew Chief is clearly a 240Z and confirmed with the Japan Takara Tomy release of him. So I borrowed their photo here – presumably the US release will feature headphones (he’s not officially scheduled yet in the US).

That leaves Rip Clutchgonkeski who seems to have no pit nor crew chief … and has never appeared on any release schedule …

The next two 4-packs are not listed as Target exclusives so maybe Target is not carrying them? Maybe TRU exclusive?

    PixarWiki says that Lewis’ chief is “the same kind of car as Bob Cutlass.” I don’t know how reliable that is or what kind of car Bob is, but it’s a possibility.

  • Matersgrlfriend says:

    We want pitties! We want pitties! We want pitties!

  • deal or no cars says:

    Could someone at MATTEL realise that there’s more than USA/France/Uk and Australia .. CANADA is here too and would like a piece of pie ! ….GRrrrrr……. NO crew chief at all .. the same Sh*t happened with Cars 1 .. Mattel piece of cr*p

  • sodabear says:

    Is Ronnie Cooper not an exclusive?

  • Jack says:

    I like the chiefs. Hate the idea of one new car in a 4 or 5 pack just like many others. Not going to do it. I bet we see sales and clearances on these sets like we have already seen though. For the 12.99 or less they will probably get me. They will be worth picking up on sale and stashing a few for when they are not around anymore.

  • Mike Manifold says:

    Hang on… what about Carla’s fan, Denise Beam? Is her 4-pack no longer on the schedule?

  • Tom says:

    This is an outrage! I thumb my nose and flick my teeth to you, Mattel.
    Camino’s crew chief should be a Seat, which is a Spanish-made VW.
    Mattel wins, they will get my money, but when the Cars diecast ride is over I won’t forget this.
    They will probably release chief/pittys sets in the future and laugh at all of us when we buy those too.

  • Mike Manifold says:

    That’s cool that you were able to get a screen shot of the pit crews, Met. While watching the movie, their screen time flies by so fast that it’s hard to see any one chief. The good part about these 4-packs is that they may actually be easier to find than the KMart 2-packs have been – fingers crossed. It’s kind of funny to see Lassetire and Motorosi with a big red check mark, though. Who here can actually check them off your list besides some international members and Oliversmom 🙂 ?

  • babychristiancars says:

    Love the crew chiefs and wish more were out. I can’t even find pope in my area.

  • cac1959 says:

    As I currently only have 1 Lewis Hamilton, I might get the 4 pack with Lewis and Raoul’s crew chief… but I don’t see myself getting the other ones for 1 few Car…

    Mattel is killing this line.

    Bring back the 4 packs (or 3 packs) with racer/crew chief/2 pittys or racer/crew chief/pitty.

  • bobbyjack says:

    If they sold the four packs as racer, crew chief, and 2 pitties, imagine how many more would sell. The way they are packed now, the first two waves will sit on the shelf and rot. Just like all the other box sets released in the middle of May. After how they almost killed the Toons line, and what has happened so far with this one, will Mattel ever learn from their past mistakes?

  • LUCA says:

    Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed ALL them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • hypercarrots says:

    i think shu’s chief’s name is “mach matsuo”. look at the translation from speed racer (mach 5)

  • hypercarrots says:

    max’s crew chief looks like an audi tt and nigel’s looks like the same car as bob cutlass.

  • toffman says:

    I’m pretty sure Max Schnell’s crew chief is an Audi TT. There were a couple of other TTs in the movie as well.

  • Corey'sDaddy says:

    If the chiefs are now only to be in 4 packs it tells me that Mattel knows exactly who they are selling to and are kind of abusing it.

    In a 4 pack they are not for kids asking their parents for a toy as they walk down the toy aisle (we have all been there), at almost $20 they are too expensive for that so they are geared for collectors who they know will buy it no matter how many repeats they have to buy to get it.

    Perhaps in their eyes, they sell more cars and collectors get a new car so everybody wins, personally I think its taking advantage. The 2 packs are good (if you can find them) the Cars One 3 pack crew sets were better and I sure that if they released C2 cars, chiefs and pitties like C1 then they would sell even better and without the leaving their customers with a bad taste in their mouths. Or perhaps 3 packs will come later and we will buy them all over again.

    Hope everyone has a good week ahead and that this weeks cars news has something to get really excited about.

  • spider says:

    These new fangled crew chiefs are great but when are Target and Tru going to stock some #1 Race Team Maters and #2 Finn McMissiles?

    • Stig McQueen says:

      LOL! I actually counted the leftovers at my local Target the other day; there were 47 Maters, a dozen LMQs and a dozen FMMs. But hey, the inventory computer says the pegs are full, so no need to order another case!

  • sodabear says:

    It would not surprise me in the least if Miguel’s crew chief was a repainted Frank Clutchington and Max’s a Sally repaint. The less said about the 4-packs the better. It seems like all these cars are just clogging the pegs as singles- why Mattel would assume they’d sell in 4-packs is beyond comprehension.

  • jestrjef says:

    Bring on the crew chiefs!!! Pitty’s not far behind????????????

  • BMW says:

    I have been a mint on card collector, but this Cars 2 line is changing my collecting. Running out of room for all these 4 packs with one new car.
    Its not the money its the lack of room.

  • Mariela says:

    So no more 2-packs with chiefs now and will have to buy a 4-pack to get the chiefs? 😕

  • John in Missouri says:

    I’ll continue to savor the Cars 2 poster I found at Kmart that pictures and names Rip Clutchgoneski. I would think whatever lawsuit against his likeness exists, there are probably thousands of his discast character made and awaiting distribution in some sort of Raiders of the Ark-like warehouse.
