Disney Pixar CARS: The Disney Store CARS 2 Acrylic Box Singles Visual Checklist 2012, Pt. 1

The Disney Stores switched from cards to acrylic boxes for their singles in late 2009, a nice upgrade …

“Unixed” has a nice complete set and has taken photos of everything so if you’re collecting, now you know what a complete set should look like.

(I will call the Disney Store CARS on card from 2006 to 2009 Series 1)

Disney Store CARS, Series 2 (2009-2011)

While “Metallic” Red was the first CHASE CAR on card, when he was almost immediately re-released in the singles box, he was not stickered CHASE.

You can read the story behind Transberry Juice/Lee Revkins here. He looks like the only CAR set at an angle also.

Disney Store CARS, Series 3 (2011-2012) (aka: The CARS 2 Series) … Unlike Mattel releases which tend to use one card design motif during one “series,” the Disney Stores use a random series of background art – matching where the CAR appeared in the film.

In the mix were CARS released with the Radiator Springs backdrop though they are ALL marked with the CARS 2 logo.

The Disney Stores have never released a Lizzie.

Again, throughout 2011 and 2012, the Porto Corsa design motif was released intermixed with the other two themes …

While there have been some re-releases (see Part 2 of this checklist), the re-releases drop the CARS 2 logo for the CARS logo so we we will move those to Part 2 of this Visual Checklist.

So now you know if you’ve got them all – or need a few to complete your set … stackable boxes are nice … you can actually make a dividing wall with them. 🙂

Thanks for the great pics, Unixed!
