Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 1 Diecast: Return of Flo’s Cafe?

Yesterday, we listed the CARS 1 diecast CARS returning to Toys R Us this Christmas.

It looks like Flo’s V8 Cafe might make it back to Toys R Us as an exclusive?

There is a listing called Flo’s for $35 … which sounds about right adjusted for inflation …

Again, don’t bet the farm or hold your breath but just maybe?

So, if you didn’t pick one up a few years ago or you don’t want to pay extra, it just might be coming back?

Here are some fun proto pics from 2006 … note how early on it was. Eyes are stickered onto all the CARS as a demo as to what they might look like …

And the other playsets …

Hey Luigi had eyebrows! And McQueen had a lot of licorice.

Of course, this hand painted set might be worth $2k now … 🙂

    I would like to see the whole town too. My son would be all over that. Especially the Cozy Cone Motel.

    There’s absolutely no reason Mattel/Disney should not re-release the buildings and castings from Cars, The Original. This is too hot a property for Mattel and Disney to lock in the vault for seven years.

    Great to see Flo’s may be coming back. We have an opened one, but I wouldn’t mind getting a mint one to display with the Cars when the boys get older.
    Those old prototype photos are awesome, some of the Cars’ eyes look like Dstore eyes.

      Someone at Mattel said “make the eyes smaller so they have some soul.”

      Someone at the Disney Store found these in the trash and said “uh hey look Mickey, these would be good for our store, duh huh, huh huh!”.

    Good!! Now I can get the stickers I never got with the one I bought! 🙂

    Those original 4 TRU playsets were the best… made of (relatively heavy) plastic… I often hoped they’d release additional buildings, such as the Courthouse, Doc’s, Mater’s Tow Yard, and more…

    • John in Missouri says:

      Agreed! I’d like to see the whole town, even the closed shops. In fact, that’s what turns me off from going to Carsland — they skimped on all the buildings between Ramone’s & Luigi’s and the Courthouse. …you can’t properly go cruisin’.
