Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: Lenticulars Alive & Blinking

Lenticulars are back and better than ever … as good as ever!

John H spotted these as a toy show …


John says he spotted 9 of them – there are only 11 on the list – 24 in a case so were all 11 released or will there be a case with the few remaining ones released?


As noted in our previous post, these are listed as EMC meaning they are NOT available to WM, Target, Toy R Us and Kmart so either Mattel will get enough orders from drugstores, supermarkets, resellers to continue this or they will get so few orders there’s no Case B. If you’re collecting these, you may want to order a case direct from Children’sToyCloset to assure you actually get all the ones released … but who knows, lenticulars could sweep the Walgreen’s nation …

Thanks for the nice photos, John H.

Full visual checklist.

    Boy some people are really angry about the googly eyes being back. I’m not personally fond of them but I’ll say one thing; they didn’t stay on the pegs too long. Some Cars collectors and fans like the Lentys. There is a market for them so why wouldn’t they make more? Sometimes hard core collectors need to keep in mind that it’s the new collectors that drive the line. Old kids stop collecting and new ones come in. Without the new 2 year kids the line would sink.

    There are 12 to a case NOT 24

    My 6 year old son who (has 99.9% of the cars, been to Carsland & Pixar Studios) says with disdain, and I quote
    “WHY ? Great ! Juuuuust great! Booooo yucky!”

    For Mattel just in case they need interpreting for kidspeak:
    Synonyms for Yucky

    Similarity of adj yucky

    1 sense of yucky

    Sense 1:
    disgusting, disgustful, distasteful, foul, loathly, loathsome, repellent, repellant, repelling, revolting, skanky, wicked, yucky
    offensive (vs. inoffensive)

    The feeling that someone or something is unworthy of one’s consideration or respect; contempt.
    Consider to be unworthy of one’s consideration.
    noun. contempt – scorn – disregard
    verb. despise – scorn – contemn – slight – misprize – disregard

    Oh by the way the only thing he told Santa he wanted for Christmas was: “A Sweden Car” from cars “nothin else” .
    You still listening Mattel?
    For other TAKE5er’s an elf sent me a note that Santa found one for him and to keep it a secret.

    Ick… the picture of Mater in the checklist explains it all…. Either no eyes, or four fuzzy eyes, detracts from the artistic integrity inherent in the Cars-rolling-art.

  • carslover says:

    these things suck
    i only buy them if it’s the only way the car comes
    even the kids i know get tired of the moving eyes quickly
    mattel if you want to sell cars stop making crap
    and put out the “new” ones you are saying are coming

  • slicepie says:

    There’s only 6 characters in the Case A so maybe John saw Case A and Case B???

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    WHY VERN?? Of all the Cars WHY VERN?

    It’s like Mattel has so many they never knew what to do with so they’re just gonna stick em back in with a different cardback..

  • Jinzo says:

    Why? Seriously… why Mattel! Stop releasing trash! 🙁

    This will be fine and all if they only picked up what’s plaguing the pegs for years. All those 100+ Finns on the pegs in each store needs to move. I’m sure they were like…
    “hmn.. how to sell more.. nobody is buying Cars..”
    then they went “I know! Let’s bring back lenticulars!” EPIC FAIL.

  • John in Missouri says:

    I can’t believe they didn’t include Boost and Snot Rod with DJ and Wingo.

  • BMW says:

    I still see a few old ones at Walgreens unsold.

  • 5oclockshadow says:

    ~yay~ more four-eyed Cars.

    This mean they gonna jack the price up a $1 again?

  • cac1959 says:

    While I like the new cardback, I am not going down the lenticular road this time… I kind of liked the ones where the eyebrows changed and the eyes stayed fixed… thanks for the great pictures.

  • Dunroamin says:

    yeah..nothing new
