Disney Pixar CARS: Mater & the Easter Buggy Book

Mater & the Easter Buggy.

Cute new story about Mater & the whole VW Dune Buggy as the Easter Bunny/Buggy story bringing giant bolts/nuts & oil cans … er, not exactly like the Alsace tradition of an Easter Hare bringing Easter Eggs but close enough*.

But of course, the more important – will we see Expanded Universe diecasts based on these? Well, certainly not in 2012 but next year? It’s not out of the question …

Mater is essentially a Easterized door and hub caps – easy to do.

Lightning sports ears for a couple scenes … a couple pennies worth of plastic, no new diecast mold required … so easy to add on …

Other than Ramone looking slightly different, the rest of the townies look no different … other than accessories such as Fillmore with Easter motif oil cans or Guido with Easter motif tires … again, easy … as in easy piece of plastic accessory equals another $2 at retail …


This requires a little more production planning, McQueen in the Easter Egg design … but certainly relatively easy as it’s just deco …

The only real complicated commitment – the Easter Buggy …

While they have a generic VW Bug-Beetle mold done, this one would require more work … but they could certainly put this in a box set with Guido with blue tires and Lightning with Bunny Ears and call it an Easter box set.

So, if it happens, it won’t be until 2013 … for the book collectors, you should know it’s the exact same size as the Christmas book so if you shelf books by size. 🙂

There are plenty of holidays left …

Mater & the Easter Buggy – available at Amazon. There is also a Kindle Fire color version (only works on Kindle Fire’s – not the Kindle software nor other Kindle’s).

There is also a Mater Easter Painting book with watercolors.

    I can bet the next book will be Halloween themed, starring once again…mater. I like him, but i think they should focus more on lightning sometimes too.

    I bought this book along with The Art of Cars and The Art of Cars2 from Amazon a few weeks ago… my grandchildren enjoyed Mater and the Easter Buggy… the other 2 books are very nice but are geared towards the adult collector.

    I think most of us would have paid the $30 for a boxed set with the Easter Buggy as a new Car and 4 repeats and not really complained about it… that’s how dry it’s been on store shelves and pegs for the last couple of months.

    Mattel drops the ball again…

    I wonder if I have any friends who could turn a Cruz Besouro into an Easter Buggy for me…

    OMG, I have got to have an Easter Buggy! Guess that means the geniuses at Mattel will never release it…

    Don’t overlook Flo, she sports a neat new pink & green paint scheme with a pinstripe “V8” on the hood.
