Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Diecast – WGP Racers & Crew Chief Checklist

The CARS 2 World Grand Prix Racers are easy to collect – they get released in nearly every configuration …

You can see pics of the new launchers HERE.

As the Toys R Us metallic series is an exclusive, it’s impossible to say when and if it ends after the next three so for now, it’s a question after the next three.

And of course, it’s still up in the air in regards to the Zamak Metallic CARS for the next Kmart CARS Day in June but as of now, it’s listed … and no, the go or no go is not because of Kmart’s store closing situation but other factors, it might end up being a financial decision but not due to Kmart’s P&L but more that the last Kmart CARS Day was not a huge success.

And yes, I know there are variants but it’s way too complicated to list here – just wait for the magazine checklist. πŸ™‚

The accompanying crew chiefs for the CARS 2 World Grand Prix racers are much more complicated.

The next two crew chiefs seem to be scheduled for Target 4-packs (Raoul’s and Nigel’s). Raoul’s crew chief is also scheduled as a single.

While the remaining un-released ones (Shu’s, Max & Lewis Hamilton’s) are unannounced, I did not want to raise false hope by listing them as a possible singles – it seems most likely they will come out in a 2-pack or in a 4-pack … but anything is possible – but for now, this list is accurate based on the current info.

Happy New Year!

    I LOVE THESE CHARTS!

    Wooow, awesome post to ring in the New Year. Ohhh yeah, bringing it back to the racing…. Sweet! I’m in for the racers and the chiefs. I hope Mattel gives us the final three Pit Stop launchers before getting too carried away with the new camera launchers. Have a great year, all!

    Speaking of magazine checklists – where is that pesky lenticular issue?

    (MET: It is pesky πŸ™‚ … Working on it now – stopped to answer comments πŸ™‚ ).

    Metallic Francesco and Raoul should be the next TRU releases since these have already been sold on ebay from China. Looking forward to those.
    Austin Littleton has the headset.

    Mattel should realize that they offered nothing new at the last Kmart Days, all they offered was rubber tired Cars with some minor variations.
    Its not a surprise that event went undersold.
    Thats why people were not flocking to buy them.
    If Mattel wants a successful Kmart 8 event they should offer some new castings (like Kmart 2 had) with the Zamac race cars, and maybe a true Kmart event exclusive.

    Happy 2012 everyone.

    Metallic Miguel at TRU? SWEET!

    And Francesco’s and Raoul’s Pit Row Launchers have already been released, you have them marked as Scheduled. Not to sound ungrateful and nitpicky at all, this is very helpful, thanks!

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    Seems odd that only Raoul’s chief is coming as a Single. Hopefully they make Shu’s and Lewis’s the same. Tired of 4 packs so I may skip Nigel Gearsley’s Crew Chief entirely– you know, until I actually see him in the wild and notice just how cool he is. πŸ™‚

    • Stig McQueen says:

      Agreed; why not just make them singles? It’s not like I need a 5th WGP LMQ, or a 3rd Jeff Gorvette, Francesco or Carla. I don’t even want a second Max, Shu or Nigel. (And that’s after many unhappy returns to minimize duplicates…)

      Guess I should be thankful that at least they won’t be exclusives anymore…

  • bobbyjack says:

    I decided to start collecting the crew chiefs for Cars 2 because there are only eleven and they should be easy to get. We didn’t get any of the Cars 1 crew chiefs or pitties because they didn’t release very many. I hope they at least finish the 11 crew chiefs and metallic racers because I hate not finishing what I start.

  • John says:

    You might also add the super chase cars as yet another version of some racers. (or is it ultimate chase?)

  • LUCA says:

    Thanks Met… And happy new cars πŸ™‚

  • cac1959 says:

    Here’s hoping that they do release:

    The crew chiefs
    The rest of the racers with metallic finish
    Rip

    I don’t see myself buying the new style launchers for Cars I already have multiples of…

    Thanks for the checklists…

  • hostile takeover banker says:

    Happy New Year! I’m already resolved to buying those crew chiefs! The Shu crew cheif is already on ebay as well.
