Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: DK Cars Character Encyclopedia + Metallic Lightning McQueen

Disney Pixar CARS: Character Encyclopedia publishing date has been updated – it is now coming out July 30, 2012 (and not 2013).

There is a cover photo on Amazon with a stand-in Lightning McQueen as the CAR included with this book – but here is the actual CAR you will get with the book.

It is a metallic version of Lightning McQueen that appears early in CARS 2.

You can see photos of the back cover in our previous post along with some answers to questions in the comments. If you missed the earlier post, I did make contributions to the editorial and to the CARS included so let’s make it the greatest selling CARS book of all time!

Order early and often.   🙂

    To me pre-ordering makes no sense. It seems to be wasting time and money

    • Fillmore1234 says:

      It is cheaper. I paid $14 for the book and the price to get it at Barnes and Noble or other bookstores is over $20.

      So it’s not wasting time because I don’t have to drive all over to look for it, and I’m saving money because I bought it early on Amazon. Simple as that.

    Wow! Very cool, can’t wait to get mine. Congrats Met! Will you be doing any stops in SD for a book signing, say in late July ish?

    (MET: Hope to see you there! Would a giant spaceship landing and me materialzing out of thin air be too much? 🙂 ).

  • Tom says:

    Just ordered mine, will be nice to receive some hot summer day!

  • Mike Manifold says:

    Oh, that explains the appearance of this car on eBay and in some collectors’ collections. Cool car. With contributions by Met, I won’t be able to pass on this one. Of course, it could never replace the T5AD checklist magazines!
