Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Diecasts: Kmart CARS Day #8 Case Assortment Buying Guide & Checklist

It looks like the next Kmart CARS Day on June 16, 2012 will feature the entire 11-CAR World Grand Prix racers CARS 2 set – including Rip! – with what they are calling double zamak paint.

Now, I do not have a 100% confirmation but it’s certainly looking like it.

The case will contain 24 CARS so with the 13 (presumed) CARS listed in this release, obviously there is not going to be 2 in each case … The first 7 listed are pretty much confirmed including Acer with Welding Torch.

The last 6 are “probable.” There are only low res versions of the other 5 racers but since they are available, it seems to make sense they are included in Day #8 but no guarantees as of now. The other non-racer is just listed as “Paris Scene CAR,” but since this windshield eyes CAR has popped up on other lists as coming soon, I’m going to guess that it’s this one but it’s listed as probable as of now.

So it looks like Kmart will definitely sell a lot more cases this time.

You in?

    I asked an eBay Seller with 8 carded singles what the case contents are, and he replied with the following:

    2 VELOSO
    2 SHU

    So unless there is a second case with different contents, it look like we won’t see Rip, Lewis, Miguel, Max and Nigel until Kmart Day #9.

    (MET: That does make sense since otherwise, they would have to go think, think, think, think for October though there are non-carded versions of all them on eBay).

  • NascarFan says:

    Overseas people that want cases, I will be ordering them again this time, please let me know.


  • D J says:

    I never thought it would be possible,but it appears this will be the best cars event yet! I only got rubber lewis at the last event…if this this is true, i think ill get them all!

    • BMW says:

      Kmart 2 was the BEST Cars event of all. The best mix of 9 new racers and rare cars. Mini, Todd, Patti, Lightning McQueen Rusteze, Vitoline Pitty, Chase Mario Andretti.

      This one won’t top that one, but it will be nice IF it has new castings.

      • slicepie says:

        Todd, Patti, and Lightning with Rust-Eze spoiler were not exclusives though.

      • John in Missouri says:

        Kmart Day #2 and the introduction of rubber tires made no sense after Kmart Day #1: 5 exclusive racers on awesome cards, plus Chase Fred with Stickers and Edwin Kranks? That was the best event by far, just for the originality.

        • BMW says:

          The story I heard from a forum member was that Kmart 1 Cars with the plastic tires were leftovers from the Speedway Sets. True or not I don’t know and checking the date codes would probably confirm or deny the rumor, but those 5 still had the best paint and finish of all the Kmart Cars. I never opened any of the Kmart 1 Cars.
          Kmart 2 was case wise the best assortment imo.

      • sodabear says:

        Right on. Day 2 was a glorious assortment. Hopefully one of these days we’ll get a C2 case that comes close in it’s sweetness.

  • Jack says:

    I am curious if they do in fact put all 11 racers in this case then will there be a Knart 9? Obviously there wouldn’t be any racers left unless they get really gimmicky and release Zamac racers with rubber tires. That would be really cheesy if they did.
    Otherwise I guess they would have to put out a case without racers for the first time.

  • Tom says:

    Wow! Looks good.

  • Jack says:

    I may be in the minority, not quite sure but I just don’t care for these non canon Zamac cars. Especially with the exception of Rip that all the racers are the same old same old. So wish they would have put more racers in Cars 2.
    The 2 other cars are really cool though. I will be getting some of those if they are in fact in the Kmart 8 case.

    • Mike Manifold says:

      I’m with you. Although, it may be necessary to get a Rip just as a precaution. I imagine the Zamak/silver could be filled in with his proper paint.

    • sodabear says:

      I’m with you on this one, Jack, although I’ll probably end up getting these anyway (what’s a Cars addict to do when this is all they give us?). Mattel is gimmick-ing us to death here. Looking forward to seeing the Acer and headlight vendor, though.

    • Steve AKA: Poppa says:

      I’m with you on this one. Zamak is nothing more than a gimmick tried with Hot Wheels several years ago. Completists will buy them-maybe? Given the dwindling peg space devoted to Cars 2, any gimmick to move product needs to be tried.

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    Will need to see a high res photo of Rip before I make any ratings on him, but as of right now I don’t really care for him in zamac. Nigel and Miguel look really cool and was totally surprised on Acer and the French Vendor. I heard Acer with Welding Torch is supposed to be in a future Case though, will it make it here before summer?

  • DDD says:

    Wow! Is this for real? This is a Kmart Day to get excited about! It’s the first I’ve read that the headlight vendor is coming…and in just two months?! Where are the sneak photos?? I knew there were some Paris Scene cars coming like the mime and kissing cars, but not her!!

    • Mike Manifold says:

      It’ll be interesting to see how their rendition of the street vendor compares to your amazing custom, assuming that they do carry this one out.

      • DDD says:

        That’s really nice of you, Mike…but that was a heavily Photoshopped job. I’m so surprised that this one is coming, and so soon in the pipeline. I hope it’s for real!

  • hypercarrots says:

    looks more like silver paint than zamak/zamac but ok.

  • Lorri says:

    cant wait! finally some new stuff.
    Today got this from Amazon: We’re writing about the order you placed on March 30, 2012 (Order# 103-3663999-8111467). Unfortunately, the release date for the item(s) listed below has changed, and we need to provide you with a new delivery estimate based on the new release date:

    DK Publishing “Disney Pixar Cars: Character Encyclopedia”
    New Delivery Estimate: August 05, 2013 – August 08, 2013


    (MET: I’m guessing it should be 2012 but I’ll double check).

  • BMW says:

    I called Mattel CS a few weeks ago. Mattel customer service told me that all 11 racers are on their list listed as for a Kmart event. But since it was a list she did not know which event, other than all 11 Zamac racers are listed under Kmart event with no specific date info.

    These will sell much better as a 11 car set at one event rather than parceled out over Kmart 8 and 9, IMO.

  • Mike Manifold says:

    I’m in for the street vendor and accessory acer should they really be included. I wonder if we’ll see Zamak Rip before regular or rubber tire Rip…

  • corinne says:

    WOW, AWSOME !!!!

  • John in Missouri says:

    Common sense would say 2 of each Racer, plus one each of the other 2 Cars, but when exactly has Mattel had common sense?

  • BMW says:

    Wonderful. these will be hot.
