Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: Convoy Brothers Almost Unboxed

First step of the D23 Expo Convoy Brothers is to admire the exterior box – awesome.

Today, it’s time to snap a few more photos close up.

Convoy Bros

Well, not quite take the plastic lid off just yet … you must approach by stealth.


Yea, if you’re going to quibble on the .01%, it would’ve been fun to get actual barrels of Dinoco Oil and just cardboard representations …

But otherwise, not much to quibble about.

convoy k

Convoy K.


You can spell team with an I.

convoy n

Great detailing on the N as if it were roller painted. Sweet!

convoy G2

Same with the G, has the extra space in the G like it was home-made painted. Nice!

convoy G

This here is an RV.

The back is a little weird – why are two of the flags for Chick Hicks, the CARS geek might ask. 🙂

Next step, hack the plastic! Soon!

People have asked if this will be available on Matty after D23 … well, it seems unlikely they will have many left over but it might be possible – it’s unknown if Mattel will have anything else there – perhaps Disney Princess something? Matty still has the Disney Pixar page up so it would be simple to update it. People have mentioned that Mattel’s Outlet stores have it in the system … so that may be the second possibility. If they only have a few dozen left, it’s not worth the bother to update the website and ship everything to Digital River for fulfillment when they can just hand it over to the store down the street in El Segundo. But if they have hundreds left, they will probably first try and sell it on Matty.

    Just spent a big amount on the 2 Carsland boxsets, including the DHL cost

    Now there’s this Convoy Brothers! Its nice but the price tag as well as the shipping cost will be crazy. Cannot imagine how much poorer I’ll be with this set (if I could find it on ebay)

  • Mr. T says:

    Awesome post Met – (although it makes my heart ache a bit…..) I definitely see this in the collection. Been a long time since something from the first came out. Not going to pay the hefty Ebay price though. Going to hold my breath and pray to the car gods they will appear on Matty.


  • xoxorose says:

    Thanks for the update and pics. I love them. I hope they will appear on matty collector as well. Right now a few sets have appeared on ebay 200.00 and up. If that is what I have to pay then I do not hold out much hope.

    They are so cute! I think K is my fav so far.

  • jlprjlpr says:

    Does anyone know exactly where inside the D23 Expo these will be sold? There are many different stores. Is it at the office D23 Expo Disney Store? Or at the Disney Store booth? Or is there a Mattel booth where it will be sold?

  • nlg510 says:

    I wonder why G has a LM flag and not a king flag.

  • MoMcQueen says:

    Are they nicely done, or do you see paint flaws, bubbles, chips, flakes and/or glue blobs? I ask only because I’m hoping Mattel may have increased quality control on the production line for these, given their exclusive nature and the asking price. I’ll be disappointed if they look like they’ve been assembled by the graveyard shift.

    This is a beautiful set…

  • John in Missouri says:

    I continue to hold out hope that this will be on MattyCollector.com.

  • BMW says:

    The I is eye catching.
    Met how do they compare to the ones auctioned at the Peterson museum, detail wise? I know those were resin or something similar. Are these metal? What else is different? need details. Congrats on getting them first!

  • NascarFan says:

    Thanks for the write up. Is there any interior support for the window inside the box?

    I haven’t been this excited about a Cars exclusive since Barry Diesel.
