Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: CARS 1 Collectors Checklist 2006 to 2013, Part 2

PART 1 is HERE of the CARS 1 checklists.

There is a bubble circle to indicate a Classic (fixed eyes release); a lenticular release and/or a Kmart release with Rubber Tires.

There is also another column to indicate minor (yellow) or major variants (green).

It is subjective but generally, it’s the 2-foot rule. If you can spot it from 2-feet away, it’s a major variant. Obvious ones are Al Oft going from a 3″ single to a 6″ oversized re-release.

You could argue it’s hard to tell the rubber tire releases from the plastic tire releases but since they’re considered major releases, the rubber tire Piston Cup racers get the green “go” button.

In 2013, there were some surprising upgrades in that previous segmented, 2-piece “plastic face” diecasts were re-released/replaced with all metal unibodies diecast versions. Now, some are very hard to tell like Fred but instead of being subjective here, any diecast re-released as a unibody gets the green.

In some cases, there are more than 2 variant releases but most are minor so I drew the line at 2.

Brown indicates a Disney Store release.

This is Part 2 of 2. You can right click to PRINT.

This is ONLY CARS 1 diecasts released through 2013. Technically Nelson Blindspot is considered 2014 but since it arrived so early, I included it here.

I don’t promise these are mistake free. 🙂 So, you may need to pull out some markers and fix them yourself. (Yep, I forgot Jay W.  & Pit Crew Member Flo (with large oil can – since I haven’t opened those yet, oops).

So, you should have around 481 CARS 1 diecasts* if you also collect lenticulars, rubber tire racers, and all the variants.

* Includes Jay W. & Pit Crew Member Flo.

If you didn’t collect lenticulars, you can subtract 97 (lenticular variants are not counted). If you don’t collect racers separate, you can subtract another 35.

So, how close are you to 481? What’s your over/under?
