Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecasts: Radiator Springs Classics Good Supply

Good news – it looks the Radiator Springs Classic line is not some short supply-one shipment-one shot deal.

Several Toys R Us stores have actually gotten a second shipment. I’m presuming there’s more Dexter Hoover with Yellow Flag in this shipment as most stores seem to have 3-4 on the pegs.

This is much nicer than the debacle that was the Final Lap plan at Target. It’ll be nice that this line is actually here to stay and in plentiful supply for new collectors – that they don’t have to rush down to every TRU just to pick over one case.

Thanks for the nice photos, “Nikko.”

    I may have missed a post or two on the ‘Classic’ line. Has anyone researched the production dates on the bottom of the castings? Are these newly manufactured castings or leftovers and returns from the first production runs.

    (MET: I didn’t check every one but they all have current production dates, which is not too surprising … if there was a lull of 4-6 months, it’s possible for something to be sitting around that long but generally not much longer – they just trash it, recycle it or sell it for cheap somewhere).

    last week we found classics at our tru. i asked if there were more and she said no. but there where 6000 on order. not sure how vast that will be but. thats quite a bit.

    happy hunting

    My local TRU doesn’t have any pegs for these. 🙁

  • Dolly says:

    We got this cases already here in Austria. Saw them also in Switzerland and Germany. Al mit Doc Hudson, Shiny Wax, Chick Hicks, McQueen and Dexter. Hope they release Lisi again 🙂

    I’m looking forward to seeing some of these at the 10 TRU near me that haven’t had them, or perhaps have had only one instant sell-out case.

    The “Three Way Tie” set is very animated and well done! A good selection of 10 cars, a multi-level display, an actual screen shot background photo and very unique package graphics! Hats off to Mattel for really putting in the effort on this one! I actually didn’t mind shelling out the $40 bucks! Wait, did I say that? 😯

    Looking for the reset myself… and looking forward to the next releases.

    This is not a bad spot for Cars and Cars 2 cars.

  • Dunroamin says:

    3 visits = three restocks…and it took all 3 to get all 8…finally found Doc on the last visit…

  • taylor says:

    Everyone with Dexter with checkered flag breathes a sigh of relief! Not me I might add, I knew it wouldn’t be him 🙁

  • bobbyjack says:

    I just saw the second shipment in my local TRU yesterday. They only put 1 case out again.

  • John in Missouri says:

    I’ve only seen 2 Chick Hicks and 2 McQueens singles over three visits to the same store. I’ll look again this weekend.
