Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Micro Drifters – San Diego Comic Con 2012

More great pics from, “Kevin NascarBronco.”

Mattel is definitely going out on establishing the Micro Drifters are the secondary line to the 1:55 … there is one problem as other than TRU, I’m not sure Target or Walmart is even carrying these? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone with differing results?

Micro Drifters are scooped up so they can zoom down. This is just a demonstration model. They are not actually offering this setup for sale.

Yes, all for show – the only playset for now is the Tokyo track set.

Nice detailing but just a little off on the scale.

The Micro Drifter mini mini Motor Speedway of South set looks nice … so far … will it be like the Mini Adventures where only about 11 are released? And of course, we know one sponsor that won’t get a release …

At the least the World Grand Prix racers only number 11 … will these all be released?

And the town, not real playsets, just made for the show.

Yes, it would be cool if they actually released these but retailers wouldn’t order it – not enough action – maybe if the cones were launchers … that would one speedy checkout!

While I definitely think the Micro Drifters are cute, I’m pretty suspicious that none have shown up on the shelves yet. It seems to have lost out at retail shelf space for the summer reset … will Target & WM actually pencil it in for the Fall reset? Mattel seems to have high hopes for these but is it the current state of CARS 2 overstock that has already made their odds of success a micro at Target & WM? Or is it that retailers think of these as Squinkies in which the fad has passed?

We should find out as the Fall reset is only a few weeks away …

But in either case, thanks for the great pics, “Kevin Nascar Bronco.”

    Just found these at my Target… had everything. But the new endcap all they had was 2 Cars Take Flight, 2 shake and go (I think that’s what they’re called) and that was literally all that was on the pegs. It was kin of funny because the person who moved them apparently sorted out all the Mater, Finn and McQueen so that made hunting 85% easier!

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    I think that if the Micro Drifters are a hit, definitely at least half or more of the 36 Racers will be released. If they start off with cool Cars like this hopefully they do well. They’ve had great marketing, like the ad on the Mattel website for Cars 2, so unless they overstock the first wave, these should do well. Hopefully it’s better than what happened with the Action Agents.

  • NascarFan says:

    Everyone is very welcome.

    ALL single and double ordered Maters, single and double orders of Hotwheels have shipped already!!!!

    All other orders are now going to shipped this week as soon as I get them re organized from the drive up to Utah from San Diego.

    Just got home, I am going to sit and enjoy the peace n quiet for at least an hour and get right back at it.

    I do want to thank:

    Marielas husband, Pablo for coming down 4 or 5 hours out of his way to help wrap and pack.

    Mariela for the use of the postage account, (mine was locked up after repetitive charges)

    Monica: Robin loves the Margarita packs !!, thanks for the packing materials too!!

    If it were not for these three others…I would still be there.

    Dennis, Thanks for the help up through Saturday night

  • Mike Manifold says:

    Wow, that is a really nice display! Thanks for the pics, KevinNascarFan! This is officially the next subline the Manifold family will not be purchasing. Sorry Mattel; please produce more of the central characters in the diecast scale we loooove, try to catch up with Disney Store if you can.

  • I wouldn’t hold a lot of doubt about Mac iCar, because Dale has a release, and Dale is rarely seen in lines of any sort, so you never know.

    But then again there’s no Claude, Aiken or Winford, the most commonly released Piston Cup drivers.

  • taylor says:

    Three dif sets of these are on TRUs shelves in the UK, cute but we wont ever get full sets of cars1 or 2 racers.

    • Dunroamin says:

      All 11 cars 2 racers are pictured…that’s a full set.unless you include super chases 🙂
      I picked up the launcher becasue the 3 packs are not in my area. it was about a third of the size I expected. The cars are really nice. I may collect them…haven’t decided yet.

  • John in Missouri says:

    It’s nice to see a little variety with the Cars 1 racers — what I mean is no Leak Less and Nitroade.
