Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Diecast: Kmart CARS Day #9 Cases Pre-Order Up … Yes, You Read That Right

“Eli D.” gives us an interesting heads up …

“I did want to point out that using a link from the last kmart pre-sale from the front page of your site, I was already able to pre-order a case of the October Kmart cars day #9 cars. I’m not sure exactly how it worked, but a few weeks ago, I added a case of the Cars day #8 to a cart on the site. Of course it told me that they were not available at that time but I didn’t bother deleting it from the cart. I went back to the virtual cart yesterday after adding a different item and found that the #8 day case had changed to #9 and was available so I figured why not, and bought one.”

Sure, enough, I gave it a go … it’s not obviously when you click the link as they have not updated the ad photo from the last one (as on the front right side of T5) or the CARS photographed underneath but if you click on the link … the next page clearly is marked PRE-ORDER and says it will not ship until October 20, 2012.

Not only does “Eli D.” give us the nice heads up, he even sends along a coupon code:



So, click on the link on the front page of Take5 or HERE. (the coupon seems to work better with our direct link versus going on the KM site as some people report).

I got the confirmation at the end of my order that it was a pre-order and I would get it October 20th to October 23rd. So far so good.

Will Kmart actually honor these pre-orders before the normal pre-order (about a week or two before October 20, the in-store event?)

Your guess is as good as a moth eaten squirrel.

It’s like that age old behind two doors question – will we get a beautiful shiny case of Kmart CARS #9 sealed CARS? Or punched in the mouth by a UFC sore loser?

In any Kmart case, thanks, Eli D for the heads up on the pre-order and the coupon code – hopefully you’ve saved us all a lot of grief in trying to guess when the pre-sale pre-order will actually go live …

Now? Now? Now? How about now? Yes NOW. 🙂

Now, what’s actually in the case? No one knows 100% certain yet but it’s 100% certain we’ll get chrome metallic WGP racers: Lewis, Max, Miguel & Nigel … it seems virtually certain we’re getting Rip but since he’s such a mystery, it’s hard to go out the limb 100% but as far as all info points, he’s included … what’s the assortment of the overall 24 (to a case)?


Chase? Probably?



(the photos are the early concept ones when the plan was to release them as clearcoat cars and not chrome metallic …).

BTW, on the page above, they will also offer you the 2-packs so if you’re still missing those, looks like KM still has some Security Finn’s …

It’s never dull!

    I don’t get it. 9 each of 5 designs, so 45 in a box? I thought it was 24 to a box, no? Or is this a different box?

    Anyone know where to find out which Kmart is participating in Cars Day?

  • Lorri says:

    Gawd, its always such a dilemma – order online and not have to fight the crowds just to get one each, but then still have to go anyway because worry they wont ship right case. Grrrr.

    When it comes to buying anything from K-Mart, the customer is always the loser.

    Direct from Kmart:

    HI Kevin, I saw your note and link this morning and forwarded it over to my online team for their review. The collector product that is on website is from the last event – they had some units they put up to sell through. That is why they left image up and description up from the June event. The October presell usually goes up 2 weeks before the event so around October 7. Please let your group members know.

    Please note your posting is correct, we will have the balance of the Silver Racers and there are other exclusives to Kmart but right now I cannot give you those details nor can I confirm Rip being in there.



    • Tom says:

      “nor can I confirm Rip being in there” – UGH!

      We should have a pretty good idea soon. The Kday 8 Cars were all on fleabay about a month before that event, I think…

    • Indykjt says:

      Kevin… thanks for looking into this, and providing us with the information.

      But geez… C’MON KMART!!! I did see the description was the same, but that has happened before. I did see the picture was the same, but that happened before. I also noticed the listing said this item wouldn’t ship until 10/20, so are they holding them until the same day as K9? I placed an order for one case hoping they were K9 but I guess I really should have known better.

      Fool me once, shame on me… fool me over and over and over again, well, here we are, and shame on me for thinking it would be any different.

      Hopefully I’ll be able to order a case prior to the event, and even get an actual K9 case, as I won’t be able to attend. I really don’t mind missing it this time around though, as we will be in Disney for my son’s Wish Trip!!!

    • taylor says:

      “we will have the balance of the balance of the silver racers” that to me says Rip will be there ?

  • 5oclockshadow says:

    Knowing Kmart, they will just ship out a #8 case if you preorder now.

  • Jack says:

    With just over a month to go it would be nice to get the assortment soon.

  • Greg says:

    Great find. I was able to successfully order with the 10% discount. 🙂

  • nlg510 says:

    I agreee Jinzo,I am going to flip when I get Rip,and Im allready flippping but I didnt get Rip.

  • NascarFan says:

    I tried to add them to the cart:

    Item not added to cart.
    We are sorry, this item couldn’t be added to your cart. Please try again later.

  • NascarFan says:

    If anyone overseas wants cases let me know.


  • Jinzo says:

    I’m all set for this KCD 😀 Already ask for the day off from work. Can’t wait. Really curious to see what, if any non racers will be in the case assortment. Maybe few Galloping Gear Grinders in there… I can hope 😀
