Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Supercharged Race Case Released? (UPDATE)

Hey, old school CARS collectors …I was doing some folder housekeeping and ran across this … was this released? Of course, I remember the original “Desert Art” release and I bought the SC re-release of this but was there an actual release of this one with the two CARS? Exclusive? If you recall, jog our memories in the comments – thanks.

The quick recap. The first version …

The “main” re-release …

So, now, the main difference is obviously the extra cardboard in addition to the two CARS …

Or you can make your own as John in Mo did … apparently he’s a little behind in this project list – looks like he’s done #2 of #40 … we’re all waiting. πŸ™‚

He does have some ‘xplaining to do on the direction of Red. πŸ™‚

For those who were not part of the Supercharged era memory to jog, here’s a quick flash back to so many releases! Week after week! πŸ™‚


What, another set?


Or who knew he’s be as uncommon as his real name …

    I think we had to lay Red on his side to fit.

    Does anyone remember how hot these cases were for a time in the Summer of 2006? They retailed for less than $20 at Target but were going for $75 on eBay. By the time Kmart got the exclusive, they were shelfwarmers.

  • UP here in Canada,I found a couple dozen of these in a Sears discount outlet store – They were marked down to $12.99 an I think I finally got it for $4.99 – Or something like that…

    I didn’t recall there being any cars attached and so I went to check…

    Sure enough – The middle part containing the two cars (or one as it may have been) was ripped off – I had no idea when I bought it cause they were all like that I suppose, and most of the other packages were pretty much destroyed – So I only took the one.

    Any pics out there of the single car release?

    (MET: So I included pics of release 1 and re-release without CARS and without the extra cardboard – so, did your just have the top cardboard or all the cardboard but missing the CARS).

    I’m not sure Cars Drive In Gallery is correct.

    As I mentioned in my comment below from this morning, I seem to recall only one Car included in the Kmart exclusive set. I have no photos to prove that however; maybe I just recall The King and quickly erased Lightning McQueen from my memory.

    Met, I just sent you a photo of a custom Race Case and Track I made for my kids 5 1/2 years ago (I made a total of four — two for my kids and two for eBay). It holds 4 of the original 21 that the first case didn’t contain (Lizzie, Snot Rod, Red, and Stanley), the next 4 singles (Dinoco McQueen, Green Ramone, Leak Less, and Nitroade), plus the 8 characters released after that (Radiator Springs McQueen, Dirt Track McQueen, Cruisin’ McQueen, Yellow Ramone, Brand New Mater, Fabulous Hudson Hornet, Ferrari Fan Luigi, and Ferrari Fan Guido).

    I removed the original images, took photos, and inserted them into the best slots they would fit into. I would have made later versions, but the hundreds of Cars that came out stopped me dead in my tracks!

    • John in Missouri says:

      By the way, I don’t think we could fit Tractor in this, so that is why we didn’t make a custom spot for him, so “the original 21” should really read “20 of the original 21”.

  • Mike Manifold says:

    Wow, I love that schematic thingy for My Name Is Not Chuck. His name is Tough Guy? Cool.

    (MET: Found a higher res version).

  • BMW says:


    Cars drivingallery shows it released in 2007 with pictures.

    • John in Missouri says:

      That site’s single picture is identical to Met’s. Does anyone out there have an actual photo of this case? I really remember only seeing one Car included with the Kmart one.

      • John in Missouri says:

        The Pixar Wikia site also uses the same stock photo.

        (MET: The photo is an official Mattel photo but every once in a while, there are photos of CARS that are prototypes never actually released (such as the KM Chrome metallic cars that were only released as unibody CARS but the proto photos show 2-piece face CARS) so that’s why I’m hoping an actual human will admit to seeing or buying this as I do not recall ever seeing this).

    i think the case was from wal-mart aruond the same time as the wal-mart 8 collection. i remember thinking, i wish i would of waited on buy some of the cars when we seen the 10 pack.

    happy hunting

  • 5oclockshadow says:

    The Supercharged era was my favorite.

    All those boxed sets.

    Neon art card backs.

    The case assortments most of the time had 1 of each car.

    No silly β€˜Chase’ cars.

    … and Yes, this case was released. I don’t remember where I saw them though. Probably ToysRus or Big Lots.

  • John in Missouri says:

    They had an exclusive release at Kmart with one Car, forget who it was though.

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    I have the Supercharged version I believe but I know it did not come with 2 Cars. Or maybe it did I can not remember. All I know is it is a great place to store your duplicates!
