Disney Store: Travelin’ Through Tokyo Box Set

The Disney Store Travelin’ Through Tokyo Box Set is an interesting set …

How does it compare to the Mattel 1:55’s?

Strangely the Sumo CARS are smaller than the Mattel ones … but equally strangely, they are actually heavier …

Because the sumo belt is plastic on the Mattel version but metal on the Disney Store one … the fringes are plastic.

And Pinion Jr …

Not a huge difference on Security Finn.

And equally strangely, the Japanese dancers, Okuni & Shigeko are larger than the Mattel versions …

There differences are the Mattel version (below right) has more flowers on the “cloth” portion of the side but the Disney Store CARS have much more detailing on the flowers in the “hair.” (the side of the fan are both technically correct as the two Red Kabuki Dancer in CARS 2 each hold the fan on two different sdes).

Mattel Tomiko’s has the umbrella (but unreleased and not scheduled yet). This is the Disney Store version below.

The Sushi Pitty’s are HUGE though …

(Comparison to the Toon like-version).

The Flight Attendant is an interesting size … it’s in scale to the Mattel 1:55’s …

(Next to to Mattel 1:55 Lightning). There is a Mattel Flight Attendant scheduled.

The Box Set is way down to $9.99 now but SOLD OUT at the Disney Store – available in stores?

    I wouldn’t have guessed that the flight attendant would be in scale with the Matty line. This would be worth it for $10, and just donate the rest of the cars to Salvation Army etc. I’m sure we’ll be paying close to that much, if not more, if and when the Matty version comes out in the 2-pack, or for some multipack with exclusive.

    Looks like i missed some deals, but i’m exited to be able to get other great deals soon. I like ds a lot,even if they don’t all look as nice, they are bigger and are all metal. that’s what i prefer most.

    Snagged this for my son during Christmas. Mattel has really dropped the ball with their Cars 2 lines, and Disney is completely capitalizing on their mistakes.

      With only 220 locations in the entire United States, I wouldn’t exactly say “completely” capitalizing. Besides, their versions have no soul. The only decent character the Disney Store has ever given us is Frank. They really blew it by not making a version of Bessie.

    As appealing as the DS cars are, they are ugly. I’m Mattel all the way, even if it kills me (and it likely will the way things are going).

  • John says:

    Also a great deal considering the Security Finn two pack has been selling for $40 on Amazon lately!

    Disney Store Bessie — now THAT would be news!
