The main character, Dusty.

Dusty plane

Dusty lives in the small town of Propwash Junction, and the single-prop agriculture plane could not be further from the lean, mean, trophy-winning machines he idolizes – and his co-workers remind him constantly. His mentor Skipper is convinced that Dusty has the engine to compete with the best, and helps encourage him to pursue his lifelong dreams. But if Dusty wants to make his dreams a reality, he‟ll need to push himself further than he ever imagined. With the help and support of a crew of all-new and hilarious characters, Dusty wings his way into the biggest challenge of his life.

His competitors – Bulldog.Bulldog plane

 

El Chupacabra – not as scary as the real life mythical creature. 🙂 Plus, the dude has a cape – what was that Edna Mode said about a cape?El Chup plane

And another Rip – Ripslinger, I’m presuming it’s Dusty’s nemesis. Shouldn’t he be sponsored by HTB? Rip plane

I’m presuming around Barney Stormin’ size.

PLANES was originally scheduled as a home video-VOD title in Spring but is now coming to theaters August 9, 2013, while it won’t do as much business as a full fledged Disney release (it’s a Disney Toon studio release, not even Pixar) but it’ll be “free” money as it’ll serve as an ad campaign for a home video-VOD release probably in late November. Monsters University DVD release will get the first Tuesday in November release schedule presumably. Or they might double up since PLANES is not going to cut into Monsters University home video sales. And it has ‘added-value” as a “real” theatrical release so why not. BTW, Jon Cryer has dropped out – it’s unknown who is replacing him.

Based on the rest of the products for PLANES on the schedule from Mattel, it is definitely being treated as a major launch.

Check back later today for Pitty photos!

    As long as the Planes belong to the same universe as Cars its a no brainer for me. I totally dig them.

    If you told someone back in 2006 little metal cars with eyes would be a big toy attraction, they would have told you to back away from the exhaust muffler. What makes you think little Disney die cast airplanes will not have appeal for young kids.

    As to not having a love affair with the public, I would suggest you need to take the kids to an air show. All it costs is $5.00 to sit in the co pilot seat of a B-25 of World War II vintage and, if you want to cough up $300 you can take an hour flight in the same. You can do the same all over the country; crawl through B-17’s and B-24’s. I’ve been through B-25’s, B-17’s, B-24’s, C-17’s, C-141’s. And, you can sit for free inside a Huey of the Vietnam War.

    Of course if you go to a NASCAR track you get to just sit in the stands.

    Yawn…
    People have had a love affair with cars as long as they’ve been around.
    The planes most people relate to are literally flying buses. We don’t have relationships with them, they are not a part of our families. When we do interact with cool planes they are on display behind a barricade or they are thousands of feet away doing tricks in the air.

  • quercy says:

    The cool thing about these planes is you can hangs them from the ceiling in kid’s room… So it does not required shelves and impacting cars storage 🙂

  • hypercarrots says:

    i want the mustang and the corsair too.

    bulldog is the name of the target mascot and he has a biplane.

  • MackDaddy says:

    Not enough play factor or personality and they lack that cool/exotic Cars look. A four wheel car can be launched across a floor and crashed! (Heaven forbid!) I don’t think these will roll very far and you wouldn’t want your kid throwing them. Mattel should have included some sort of attachment that made them roll better. Maybe similar to the 1970s RRRumblers snap on wheels. Unless you have a kid with a high regard for planes, I think these may fizzle out. 😕

  • carslover says:

    any idea when these will start showing up in stores?
    will have to see in person to decide if i want them

  • Fillmore1234 says:

    Ehh… no thanks. I will probably just get Dusty and Skipper, if Skipper gets released. But maybe if they look better in person I’ll buy them.

  • bubba101212 says:

    I think they look kinda cool. Looking forward to the movie and the diecasts.

  • brittanycenter2007 says:

    Love it!! We will be collecting these as well. I can’t wait for my son to see the full movie and not just the trailer that he has made me watch 100 times!

  • John says:

    Will Take 5 A Day be covering Planes die casts?

    < strong>(MET: If you buy them, I’ll cover them. 🙂 ).

    • quercy says:

      Well…. Looks like T5AD already doing a pretty good job covering them and all the previous 12 Take Flight released cars, planes and helicopter which is like an hybrid/transition from CARS to PLANES… (Disney and Mattel… they are sooooo smart 🙂 They really know what they are doing isn’t?)

  • cac1959 says:

    So much for thinking I’d be able to pass on collecting the characters for Planes… great looking characters!

  • bobbyjack says:

    My kids have already watched the trailer a bunch of times. I’m thinking they will be all over this.

  • cars4josh says:

    If my kid never finds out I’ll never have to worry about endlessly searching for these now as well, guess I’m screwed!!!!

  • John in Missouri says:

    OMG, they all look like Francesco Bernoulli with wings — PASS!!
