Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Diecast: Canada Overstock Over The Top

“Frank DF” sends along some of the scariest, and saddest CARS photos you might see in a while – so brace yourself …

Here’s overstock in a Montreal, Canada store …

Um, yea, note the RED BAND from May 2011 … yea, not May 2012, May 2011.

These are the international cases so I do not know if it matches the US case F but it appears to: 2 Double Decker Bus, Hydrofoil Finn McMissile, Kingpin Nonbunga, Pinion Tanaka & Submarine Finn McMissile (only 6 to a case so 1 of everything but the bus?)

Closeup pics of the RED BAND F case?

At least 9 full or close to full cases plus what’s floating around outside?

(Because the film opened in different territories at different times through the entire summer, international cases had the red band not to open early but no specific date).

And on the right side, 9 more cases … perhaps 2 more cases of red band CASE F?

Case H – What’s that old saying about insult to injury, you fall into a waste sewer and after you climb out, you discovered they towed your car?

It looks like a match as there is a Pope, the US case was: Hydrofoil Finn McMissile, Red, Submarine Finn McMissile, Pinion Tanaka & Pope Pinion IV.

So, if you have time at work – tally it up for us. I’m too sleepy.


The overstock shelf does not end THERE.

Yep, MORE.

I’m presuming that’s Lights & Sounds CARS … At 4 cases plus a few in the front … and what’s that to the right of the L&S?

Holy snickey! It’s MORE CASE F & CASE H’s. Presuming all the ones in the back are CASE H’s, that’s another 10 CASES of CASE H and 1 more of F.

NOW, add it all up.

AND that’s the overstock. I’m presuming the pegs are packed – along with Action Agents & Air Hogs.

As Frank notes, they never even got the Popemobile … who wants that when you can get another Hydrofoil Finn or Sub Finn?

And they’re priced to sell …stick on the overstock shelf.

Singles are still 6.99$ + 14.5% tax

Deluxe are 9.99$ + 14.5% tax

As Frank sadly notes, they will not be any more CARS until 2020? 2025? When the next Mayan calendar cycle through?

Thanks for the scary & sad photos, “Frank.”

And more insult, Tim Horton’s is offering a free donut if you buy a cup of coffee on their US Facebook page.

But hey, if you need a Pope CAR, they are available in Canada with a ladder and $12 CAD – all you need!

    We still see the odd box with the red band in the UK stores, but nothing on this scale πŸ™

  • Refriedbeans says:

    My goodness, someone please send me the blue sumo wrestler! Is he easy to find, I’ve never seen him…I have the other one though.

    • CalgaryGuy says:

      I was at a store today and saw at least 4 of the blue sumos, 4 of the purple sumos. I don’t know if they finally got around to opening some old deluxe cases, they also had some Topper Deckingtons (haven’t seen those on the shelves in awhile). They easily had at least 20 deluxes on the shelves and not just McMissiles.

  • Jinzo says:

    Wow… just sad… pretty much how it is at most stores in the US. Well at least at my location πŸ™ I don’t even think Toys 4 Tots will take them. You’ll probably get fined if you tried that… just sad

    Not much different in Frederick, MD.
    Again, how did this happen?
    If Mattel were one of my vendors there would be he!! to pay.

    This Daddy of two young boys is in a state of despair. Christmas looks to be bleak here in Montreal.

      Hello, Pitcures are from me .. Frank from Canada…

      This is exactly the only contents Canada have been supplied with since almost a year !.. But now it’s worst with Christmas time they bought and brought more of this ” @rap” .. That picture was took in a Zellers store.. but WM and TRU have almost the same problem… Only thing we had before everyone was RAOULE CAROULE metallic finish from TRU .. but at 10.99$ + 14.5% a pop .. they stayed on the pegs ! Now I’m asking everyone to wake me up in 2020 when Cars 40 will be playing in Theatre, we CANADIAN might have a chance to score new items !.. πŸ™‚ Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a splendid evening !

      • CalgaryGuy says:

        They still have Zellers’ in your neck of the wood? I thought they had closed down all the stores a few months ago. Only 3 more months before most of the ones here in Calgary are converted into Targets. Like many Canadians, I’m eagerly awaiting the introduction of Target into Canada but it still won’t be quite the same as making those over the border runs.

        • deal or no cars says:

          I’m sorry … and I don’t want to blow your “balloons”.. but even if some Zellers are converted to TARGET .. we might not get more cars .. ONLY because of QUEBEC and our STUPID laws .. ( everything needs to be written in both languages..,) so if Mattel CANADA don’t start to re-think their packaging system .. well we are done ! .. I don’t get it at all.. since LEGO either the one you find in USA or in Canada .. they are written in English, French and Spanish .. LET’S say welcome to MATTEL piece of Crap Canada …
