Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Diecast: Are You Ready For 2013 Mainline Singles Cases?

Well, since 2012 turned out to be a mockery of a travesty of a sham for mainline diecast singles releases, perhaps it’s good to start all fresh, rosy and apple cheeked for 2013.*

Not finalized but a nice sneak peek at the contents.

Yep, CARS 1 is back with a vengeance: Chick, Dusty, Sally, Sheriff, Tow Truck Tom, Mater and the most oddball of all – Hank Halloween Murphy.

CARS 2 is repped by returning: Francesco, CARS 2 LM, & Vladimir Trunkov.

New to CARS 2 as a single: Uncle Topolino (previously available in a Movie Moment and in a Box Set).

New NEW … Finally coming … J Curby Gremlin …

    This is the continuation of the 2012 disaster (this would be like having Bobby Valentine manage the Red Sox another year). One new car (excluding the Chase)???? There are tons of Rubber Tire Chick Hicks from a couple of Cars Day ago at KMart. Just awful-LMQ?? Tow Truck Tom? Francesco? Sally? I don’t like adding Cars diecasts to the mix when there are so many Cars 2 diecast that haven’t been released due to the glut of Finns, LMQ, Race Team Maters and FBs on the pegs. Just awful.

  • 5oclockshadow says:

    Ultimate Chase = Sepia tint Hudson Hornet. yeah right.

    Maybe the chase car is the girl with the open umbrella?

  • mattmartin says:

    Yet ANOTHER stupid idea! Who on earth is making these decisions? Now if they were releasing new Cars 1 characters previously not released it would be sensible but keep the lines separate.

    • Fillmore1234 says:

      It’s better than keeping them exclusive to one store. I hate having to drive 2 hours just to find stuff at Toys R Us that may not even be there. Which is why I never collected the Metallics, Color Changers, Radiator Springs Classics (I did buy Chick and McQ)

      I’m actually a lot more glad Mattel decided to do this than keep rereleasing Jeff Gorvette, Finn McMissile, Raoul Caroule, Petrov Trunkov etc… Too many Pegwarmers, and hopefully it keeps the shelves empty for new stuff.

  • MrBrownstone says:

    A few too many LMQ’s and Francesco’s for my liking, but can’t complain at all given the other 15 cars in the case. To be honest I’m quite happy with this selection.

    6 cars that I don’t have in there…

    I’ll be a happy man with an unhappy bank balance when this case hits the shelves

  • Jack says:

    Not complaining but find it really surprising that we will be getting Cars 1 and 2 in the same cases. It should have been this way since Spring 2011. Opens up many possibilities. Let’s hope we see some new Cars 1 cars out of this too. I’m still waiting for Wrecked Hudson Hornet and others we were promised.

    • Mike Manifold says:

      Yes, wrecked Doc would be awesome! They could finish the Final Lap cars as well. I am glad about this combination of both movies into one series, so long as they move well enough for multiple stores to stock well. The choice of Cars is a little odd though. Mattel should just spend an afternoon reviewing eBay sales to determine which cars are actually in demand.

  • John says:

    We already have a purple Gremlin, Don Crumlin; isn’t he J Curby Gremlin? I am confused.

    Could girl car on the bridge be from the kissing pair of cars from Paris? (Bridge over the Seine.)

    (MET: The main difference between J Curby from Don is J Curby has a yellow stripe… I’m presuming they’ll be a eyes and expression difference also).

  • taylor says:

    I suppose it makes sense to have Cars1 cars included for the new collectors and for people like me who have around 30-40 cars1 cars still too get. Bring them all on please.

  • Raekwonn says:

    so what about the 2012 cars we havent seen in stores yet which are NOT on the re-release list Met previously posted? I’m thinking Galloping Gear Grinder, Sir Wheeliam, Blue Maserati, Alex Hugo, Erik Laneley, Cartney Brakin, Sir Harley Gassup, Otis, Fabrizio, Alex Vandel….I havent even seen Becky Wheelin or Don Crumlin in a store. I guess all these may be a tough find if you dont order whole cases. It seems like they are all the cars everybody is waiting for, and they arent even going to be distributed in 2013…

    (MET: My current theory is on some of them is in this post. Becky & Don have already had their release. You probably need to buy it online (on the T5 forums or otherwise). Cartney is in CASE Q – not canceled. As for the CARS from the canceled case F – most likely they’ll show up on new cards in 2013 but they have NOT been rescheduled – and who knows, they might show up in the WM cases also?).

  • John in Missouri says:

    There were two Cars kissing on a bridge in Paris, I think it’ll be her; otherwise wouldn’t they have named one of the Japanese girls?

  • RodredlineM19 says:

    Okay what what what what what is with the Cars 1?

    Is it combining Radiator Springs Classic?

    Is that the new card art?

  • cac1959 says:

    So Cars and Cars2 Cars are in the same mainline singles case… the selection puzzles me… too many McQueens and Francescos… Ultimate Chase? Gotta think about ordering this case.

    (MET: The ULT CHASE is still not 100% confirmed – which would obviously tipped the tide).

  • elixirdream says:

    Girl CAR #1 on a bridge

    Would that referred to the scene where Kabuto and Yokoza is standing together?
    There are 4 girls on the bridge / platform.

    Suki was supposed to release on Case F.. or the red colour girl that we seen on the SDCC exhibition

  • bobbyjack says:

    This case sounds great. Except for 5 McQueens and 4 Francescos.
