Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Diecast: San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Mater 2012 Sneak Peek Preview!

The San Diego Comic Con “Restroom Mater,” looks pretty great.

This year’s Comic-Con vehicle captures the hilarious scene from Cars 2 when our beloved Mater finds himself in a Tokyo bathroom stall. Just like in the movie, Mater is surprised with flashing lights, catchy music, and a thorough scrub down! This memorable moment comes to life with moving side jets, as well as a jet that springs up to clean Mater’s undercarriage, lifting his back wheels off the floor. Covered in suds, Mater experiences hi-tech action unlike anything he’s ever seen in Radiator Springs!

Even the packaging is fun.

You get a sudsy Mater in an acrylic case and the Tokyo restroom.

The panel lights flash, there is sound and music, & Mater get rocked. Just like the movie!

Mater looks great and the added lights & sounds pretty much clinches the deal.

While it is $30, this set is definitely packed with value … and honestly, if your plan was to wait and hope it does not sell out at SDCC over the 5 days (+ the voucher pre-order period), you might be barking up the wrong tree or more fitting, you might be all wet.

It’s your decision but this should be the first sellout at the Mattel booth as people will be all hot & lathered. The detailing on Mater looks great and the fact the display/playset has lights & sounds should clinch the deal and make this an evergreen hot, hot display for CARS fans …

The current plan is that the voucher pre-sale starts on Thursday 5/30 at 9 am PT through 6/14 at 11:59 pm PT with limited quantities available for pre-order pickup at SDCC in July. Then the next time it’s available is Wednesday night during Preview night at SDCC, July 11, 2012.

Good luck!

(Maybe these should’ve been the action agents …)

    Okay, as of today. June 6th, 2012.

    I am going to re open the list back up for a limited number of SDCC requests.

    I have another person going with me now and can take on a little more.

    This other person coming with me, Dennis D., has two single day passes and his airline tickets were bought last night.

    We are going to try and ship FROM San Diego with two other TFADer’s help.

    What does NOT get packed and ready for the post office on Monday will be driven back here to Utah and shipped throughout that week and weekend.

    All orders are filled in the order you paid.

    IF YOU are in no hurry, and can wait for the trip back to Utah and mail from here, please let me know, and I will take those notes on to the Buyers List and get others’ items out ahead of yours.

    We have had alot of requests for Monster High Dolls

    Monster High Dolls: 40.00 each plus shipping.


    All other items are 12.00 over cost.

    For now, you can be on the “Secondary SDCC List” by emailing your requests.

    ONCE you pay, we are committed, you are committed.

    I have spots open for K.I.T.T. and Scooby now again.

    I also have spots open for other Mattel items.

    Mattycollector page is all but sold out, only K.I.T.T.car is still up

    We MIGHT have time to get to Hasbro booth.
    no guarantees on hasbro or any other items.

    Thank you


  • NascarFan says:


    I am going to be canceling invoices that are not paid and that have not made arrangements.

    Those canceled invoices will be removed from the list.

    Most of these invoices have been out there a while and no replies from those that wanted these items.

    I do not and will not be getting extras from SDCC.

    If you are “on the fence” about getting anything, you might want to make a choice.
    VERY FEW Maters are still up on Mattycollector page for preorder.

    Very few K.I.T.T. cars still up also. I expect this and the Scoobys to sell out by Friday noon July 13th, 2012
    The K.I.T.T. has lights and sounds and I have a fair list for them.
    52.00 each plus shipping.

    I do have 3 spares for Scooby that were never paid for.
    32.00 each plus shipping.

  • NascarFan says:

    Okay, 2012 SDCC Update:

    ALL “Locked In” emails have been sent out to those that have paid in advance.

    If you did NOT get a “Locked In” email and you have PAID in advance, please let me know, I will correct this.

  • NascarFan says:

    A cool 2012 SDCC Batman Dark Knight Rises figure video was just released.


    Scott Neitlich, aka Toy Guru, gives you a preview of three 2012 figures: The Dark Knight Rises Batman (in amazing packaging featuring Wayne Manor and the Bat Cave, plus lights and sounds) and from MOTUC, the Snake Men 2-pack and Horde Prime.

  • NascarFan says:


    Several invoices have been sent out and most of you have paid. Thank you.

    Some invoices are not paid.

    If you have not received an invoice, please contact me as soon as possible. I will correct this.

    If you have received an invoice and have not paid, please let me know if you need more time or cancel your order.

    I would like to get these prepaid by May 28th, 2012 at midnight mountain time.

    Prepayments that are paid are moved up in order on the list from “being on the list”

    Since some people do not track comments on all SDCC posts, this is cross posted on all SDCC posts.



  • NascarFan says:

    If any of you that have ordered that live in the Los Angeles / San Diego California or on the Interstate 15 corridor, you MAY make some sort of arrangement with me to pick up / drop off your SDCC item(s) at no extra charge.

    This also applies to ANYONE who has ordered and who does not live in that area and has an order PENDING with anyone who does live in that area, that you can ship your SDCC items all at once.

  • Wraukn says:

    I thought Mater was covered in bacon!

  • netmatrix says:

    if u ask me, i think this Mater is pretty scary. It looks like he is covered in boils rather than bubbles. Couldn’t they take another scene from the movie? I think they should name him Cancer Mater because it looks aweful! Well thats what it looks like to me anyway.

    • Jack says:

      Yep have to agree I’m not that fond of this Mater either. Don’t think we need Mater in the bathroom to go with the dozens of other Maters. I have to wonder what type of chemicals they are using for the fake bubbles too.
      Anyway to each his own but I think it could have been a much better exclusive.

      • NascarFan says:

        I still Think a light up Todd the Pizza Planet truck would have been huge instead of another Mater.

        Maybe we should petition for this.?

        • sodabear says:

          Oh, I wish. That would be awesome.

        • NascarFan says:


          Petition Start:

          I Kevin, NascarFan, West Valley, Utah…

          Dedicated Cars movie fan…think that we HAVE SEEN ENOUGH of the Maters…

          Lets see a special lighted Todd The Pizza Planet Truck, ( lighted blinking sign on top of the truck ) maybe the SDCC version would have a few pizza boxes, Wall E, Eva and that dog from UP?

          (anyone else can copy this above and use their own name and city, country)

          I think I remember Martin A talking about it around Lightning Storm Mc Queen purchases in 2008.

    • 5oclockshadow says:

      I was thinking it looked like he was covered in acid. Maybe can call him alternate ending mater.

      All in all he is growing on me though. I wish the bubbles were bright pink like the movie. I said I wouldn’t buy any cars 2 diecast; but I may end up picking one of these up.

  • bubba101212 says:

    How an someone who lives in Chicago get one?? Huge Mater fan.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

  • John in Missouri says:

    So is it officially called “Restroom Mater”?

    (MET: No, it looks like it’s officially just called Comic Con 2012 Mater).

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    Something makes me feel like it’s gonna be such a great item, and then BAM, we figure out Mater cannot be detached from the playset.

  • D J says:

    If i had the chance, i’d definatly get this!

  • Bumper Save says:

    This looks nice. Now how should I get one without paying $$$$$$$$$………

  • BMW says:

    Met, is this a prototype?
    I thought Mater would have pink foam as in the movie.
    Really want to see your video.

    (MET: Those were the official photos. I’ll take some more when I shoot the video but it looks pretty much as in the photos now. It might be a little more transparent looking. I think the original scene foam was a little odd looking to begin with and I think pretty hard to replicate exactly on a diecast – the balance between recognizing its Mater and that he’s a bulbous blob.:-) ).

  • Jayp7 says:

    What is our preorder limit for these during the preorder voucher period at SDCC?

  • Mariela says:

    Very very very nice!!!

  • NascarFan says:

    I have been getting asked :

    How much is plastic vs. Metal?

    (MET: More preview posts coming plus video in the next few …).

  • DDD says:

    Looks like an airbrush-effect metal body with plastic bubble clumps attached?

  • Mike Manifold says:

    I’m salivating – with sudsy saliva! Just amazing….

  • bobbyjack says:

    I would love to get that Mater, but I’m not sure if I would be able to explain to my kids that this Mater is just to look at and not open.

  • John says:

    Any idea if sudsy Mater will be released as a single later on? Not a lot of play value for the kids.

    We’ve been using a modderfied Disney Store bathroom, ‘tho the boys seem to have tired of it.

  • Outlawbak says:

    Does Mater REALLY move?…or gets rocked??

  • hostile takeover banker says:

    Bahahaha. That’s awesome!

  • bubbabob says:

    That’s a nice one!

  • NascarFan says:

    Cool..looks great


  • cac1959 says:

    Wow… what a great looking item… Glad I’ve placed an order, and I may get more if they go live on MattyCollector.com after Comic Con ends.

  • BMW says:


    One fine Mater!
