Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Diecast: Planes, Train & Automobiles Take Flight for 2012, Pt 1 – Air Mater

While we’re not quite out of the woods yet, it seems there are CARS scheduled for 2012. Whether they straighten out the mix issue, the retail issue, the planning issues, the strategic issues, the timeline of line extensions and the collector issue remains to be seen … but at least these have been designed, molds made and UPC numbers made … other than that, there are no promises.

There is a new oversized line called CARS TAKE FLIGHT which is a convenient umbrella line extension that encompasses the “sky-space” themed TOONS and the forthcoming PLANES full length feature (home video 2013).

So, in that sense, TOONS are back – at least for this line extension. Whether there will still be a regular Toons line is unknown at this point – it certainly seems likely.

There is a rumor that everything might be called “CARS World,” as the major motif which makes sense as there are characters that encompass CARS, CARS 2 and Toons (like Radiator Springs McQueen, Flo and others) where they look exactly the same in each – so why bother splitting hairs – so maybe the Toons only might just get a snipe.

Anyway, if you’re interested  🙂  , here are the AIR MATER diecasts from CARS TAKE FLIGHT …

Falcon Hawk 1

Mater Hawk

Mater Plane

Lightning McQueen Plane

Falcon Hawk with Bandage

(alt view)

And Barney Stormin’ (since we now knows he lives in Propwash Junction …)

These are only the oversized singles of CARS TAKES FLIGHT so we don’t know what else will be coming from AIR MATER in the way of regular singles, 2-packs? 3-packs? Or box sets …

In case you’re on board with this series, be sure and come back later in the day to read Part II of III … ya’ll come back now … or should I pitch it as, “Yaw come back now.”

Get it? It’s plain plane humor … 🙂

    Wait a minute, here. Where is… Mater Private Eye & Moon Mater Diecasts!!!!

    What kind of cut-rate production is this.

    Excuse me Mattel but haven’t you missed some very important installments in the Toon Series!

    Are the Falcon Hawks Marco repaints?

    (MET: My feeling is no since they look slightly different … since my guess is this plane-type will appear in PLANES, Mattel will go ahead and do up the new molds since they already have Hawk 1 & the bandage one planned, the new mold will get plenty of payback …).

    Bobbyjack, a good place to go to find more uncommon Cars like her would be at stores people don’t normally go to for Cars. Bergners is my example. Ive seen my first Pinion Tanaka there, and there were lots of Double Decker Buses and a couple Holley w/ Wings.

    Very nice! Any idea when these beauties might show up on the shelves! Can’t wait! 😉

    Very interesting… crew chief 2 packs will not be Kmart exclusives… and now this… bring back the unmade Cars from the first movie… haulers, launchers, team crew sets… and any other announced Cars.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! Cannot wait for these. Look forward to new life in the Toon line! Bring them ALLLLLLLL back!

  • bobbyjack says:

    Awesome! My son plays with Marco almost as much as he does Finn McMissile and the Lemons. (He keeps asking me for a Holley w/ Wings, but I’m having trouble finding her in a store.) These new planes will be great. I hope they make Moon Mater stuff too. With Mater plane coming out, I will be alright if I don’t ever get Aviator Mater.

    Cool! Loving that rusty Air Plane Mater.
