Mattel Disney Pixar Storyteller Diecast: Mattelrad Has Downed Santa’s Reindeer (Apparently)

Mattel seems to have given the word to NORAD to shoot down the idea of a reindeer CARS Christmas.

While it’s not 100% 100% – there seems to be no listing for the Christmas CARS reindeer anymore … and of course, since it’s December, it seems pretty unlikely they are just in the warehouse or the backroom of some store … they would be out by now … and of course, there’s always a leak somewhere …

So, while there’s no official word, the fact their product number is no longer listed means almost 100%, no Christmas CARS and no reindeer this year.

Here’s the UPC: 7-46775-06874-5



Santa Reindeer

Mater Saves Christmas.

    I saw entertainment earth has a caae of 6 on pre-order for January. They don’t list which 6 Christmas Cars it includes. Does anyone have any more info on this?

    (MET: That’s the 6-pack of reindeer not coming. EE tends to list everything and shows it as pre-order which it technically is but will cancel eventually).

    Sadly disappointing!

    It was bad enough that the stores in the Sacramento area were getting backed up with overstocks on the old cards with McQueens, Francescos and Finns, now, in addition to those, there are also the NEW cards with McQueens, Francescos and Finns warming the pegs, right on top of the old ones.!

    I would hazard a guess that the percentage of new singles which filtered through area stores over the past 4 to 6 months was about 1 percent of the total.

    Very sad!

    My educated guess? Maybe the answer (to the question of what happened to the snowmobiles) is on the cover of the current holiday edition of the California Adventure visitor guide. 😉

    Now I know how Grandma felt when she got ran over by the reindeer. Mattel gave Cars collectors the old Bah Humbag for sure this year.

  • Mariela says:

    Yeah…keep making Finns Mattel, because that’s what you really are selling!
    Too bad there’s no Christmas Cars this year 🙁

    It would be cool if capitalists ran Mattel…
    It would also be cool if they took just a few minutes to listen to their customers, or maybe send their merchandisers out into the world to see and rectify the sorry state of affairs at retail.
    Here we are 3 weeks before Christmas, in the biggest time of the retail season, if they can’t figure out how to make money now they are apparently lost.
    My Walmart has 25 Francescos, 1 LMQ and 3 Sub Finns. My Targets and TRUs are restocking with 2011 Case A…
    What happens at Cars sales report meetings? Does the emperor wear clothes of the finest silk?

    Bah! Humbug!

    Mattel is lost, maybe they’ll release it in January …..maybe some reps should go around and clean up all the junk from the stores and they’d make more money. Supply and demand, mattel please do google search and take notes

    Great comment, John in Missouri.

    Too bad about the the Reindeer – Santa and 8 Reindeer would have been an awesome set to add to the Cars Christmas display.

    No retailers wanted the set? That says something about distribution, and it’s not good… It’s not that Cars aren’t selling… it’s that the same old pegwarmers are not selling.

    I’ll have a blue Christmas without you (and you and you and you and you and you and you and you and you).
