Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 1 Diecast: CARS 1 Now More Regular and Not So Exclusive …

CARS 1 will return to the MAINLINE SINGLES and will be in EVERY Case assortment coming in “2013.”

So, will they sport the Radiator Springs Classic look intermixed with the next card design for CARS 2 (London?) ??

Will they sport the CARS 2 CARS card design?

Will they sport an entirely new and different look/card from Radiator Springs Classics at TRU?

Will Radiator Springs Classic card/line still even be available at TRU?



If we don’t get answers, we don’t have long to wait – the first “2013” singles case will ship in October 2012 …

So, if you’re looking for CARS 1 diecasts, here’s a preview look at the first batch of releases coming …

Yes, Marlon Clutches McKay makes the CUT AGAIN! ๐Ÿ™‚

There is some overlap with the Radiator Springs Classic series but not really, so it seems both will run concurrent – For instance, TRU’s Radiator Springs Classic line has Mater but not original Lightning McQueen on card … a breakdown of each is coming.

But going forward?

Will newbies know that CARS 1 Lightning is on this card but Mater is only at TRU?


There is an abundance of old school classic design automobiles – maybe just left over from the last run of Final Lap CARS?

So, what do you think?

    Greta,hank,rusty,dusty,milo,and the other rusty car are all ones i still need! Mattel, do it right or not at all. Please.

  • ksammut says:

    I missed out on Donna Pits and Jonathon Wrenchworths.
    I also missed on Mini, Sally with Cone, Vitoline pitty, and Easy Idle Pitty.


  • Rollerwings says:

    I would love to be able to find Donna Pits and the rusty green guy this time around!

  • ghostlight says:

    I’d like to add Brian Souvenir and Polly puddlejumper. To think I coulda saved a few bucks on at least 5 of these.

    (MET: Well, unless you bought them yesterday :-/ … who knows what will get re-released – besides Mater & LM (and Marlon Clutches McKay), as you can see from the prelim list, it’s pretty random).

  • babychristiancars says:

    wow, I think we still need the checkered flag. Of course we still need lugi/guido paint cans and a couple of the toons.

    Happy to see them return.

  • jalen says:

    waiting for wedding day and retro ramone

  • taylor says:

    Dexter with checkered flag?? or just Dexter, Its the only one on that list i didnt get, and now is over 100 dollars on Ebay.

  • kelskars says:

    I’d be happy with 2 of the Harley Davidson colored one!!!

    What is the name of the car 2nd down in the middle?

  • Jinzo says:

    Already own all of these ๐Ÿ™ Even though I say this, I’ll probably end up buying them. I really hope these will be numbered though. Don’t know what it is but it just bugs me so much. ๐Ÿ™

  • eltonlin98 says:

    I’m glad I was able to take advantage before the King was released. I sold 2 loose ones online for up to $20 on Ebay. My starting price was $0.99.

  • Cherie says:

    New Cars, please.

  • Refriedbeans says:

    Can I just ask why Marlon seems to be hated? I don’t have him and I thinks he’s really cool!

    (MET: Not hated but seems a odd choice to be available so frequently when others have a longer waiting list).

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    Great assortment. And as for Vern, was he even a pegwarmer as a Final Lap? Wasnโ€™t it just the Lenty?

    Out of these I still need:
    Donna Pitts
    Johnathan Wrenchworths
    Dexter Hoover w/ Checkered Flag (will it be the Checkered Flag for sure?)

    And out of these I have but as Lenticulars are:
    McQueen w/ Cone
    Marlon โ€œClutchesโ€ McKay

    I hope they start releasing new Cars 1 Releases as well, like Mildred Bylane and Dan Sclarkenberg.
    2013 is looking to be a lot better year than this wasโ€ฆ..

    (MET: Yep, says Checkered Flag – that’s not to say it’s 100% but for now, it is … I should have the “new” CARS list ready by next week).

  • BMW says:

    Have all these as classics.

    I could get excited if Mattel would throw a bone to us long time collectors by finishing the original line. what happened to the cars we saw as protos at Peterson, SDCC?

    Mildred Bylane, Bernie Caliper, Percy Hanbrake, Dan Sclarkenberg, Yellow Truck, Wilmar Flatzz non lenticular, Mood Springs Pitty please.
    I know you made them Mattel, as they have been sold back door, so where are you hiding them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • John says:

    Mattel, what are you thinking? Vern the taxi cab was a huge peg warmer, even Big Lots couldn’t give them away. Please bring back some hard to find car, tractors would be great, not Vern.

    Met, how about a T5AD poll, which Cars to reissue?

  • rtteachr says:

    This is cool! Time to stop bidding on ebay with these coming out! New cars to get for my son.

  • Dunroamin says:

    These have all been released as non-lentys and I have them…yet…I want them again. What has mattel done to me?

  • Jack says:

    Everything old is new again. Got to love it.

  • RodredlineM19 says:

    NOOO!!!! I was hoping there would be at least one car I never found in the golden age (excluding Dexter).

    My complete list:

    Milton Calypeer
    Fred Rescale
    Fred Bumper Sticker Chase
    Chuki Kanju Chase
    Vitoline Pitty
    Mario Andretti Chase
    Ferarri Chase
    The King with Piston Cup
    Coriander Widetrack

    Also why the heck is there Nitroade and RPM without Leak Less? Are we free :)?

  • bobbyjack says:

    We have all these cars, but it will be nice to replace the lenty ones we have with painted eyes to go on display.

  • nlg510 says:

    There is a lot that I dont have in here.

  • John in Missouri says:

    More questions:

    Will we ever see Tractor again?

    Did Leak Less finally leave Nitroade?

    Will Sputter Stop be renamed Sputter O Stop?

    Will we see 1:55 scale Fred or 1:110 Fred as pictured?

    Will Dexter Hoover ever get his Final Lap white flag?

    No Doc Hudson?

    Speaking of Doc, did Lizzie also die an unexplainable death?

    Will Sarge ever return as a single* for the first time since the Recall 5+ years ago?

    *painted eyes, no gas can, and not “95” sticker

    (MET: Yes, no and maybe – but you didn’t hear it from me).
