Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: Audi 2-Pack Movie Moment

One of the next 2-packs will be an Audi with a Sal Machiani repaint …

Blue audi

Nice expression … if you know his name, chime in below …

This is the “Sal Repaint” souvenir vendor that makes it a “Movie Moment.”

Though, the vendor does not seem to appear in the scene with the Audi at the exact same frame(s). Maybe they got confused and thought the BMW (?) MB (?) on the right is the “Audi,” since they vaguely share the same color?

The Audi appears to drive from the right side of the frame and actually is the first to knock down the Allinol sign out of anger – which then Magen Carrar, the Porsche drives over the sign a couple times to prove he’s much more angry than the Audi.

The Audi then drives and parks next to “Bindo,” but technically never appears in the same frame as the “Sal Souvenir Vendor,” so be sure and point that out to the clerk when you are buying this 2-pack that it’s not quite canon and it should cost less … let us know what kind of response you get. 🙂 … and no, we will not bail you out of Walmart jail. 🙂

    No place else relevant to put this, but today the postman brought me a new Audi TT from the Chinese ‘back door’. Same as the Jonathan Shiftko design, but in a dark blue. Any clue “who” it is? The smirk is reversed from the above Shiftko image, and the eyelids make him look angry as well.

  • Mack_me_Bucko says:

    Resurrecting this thread. Apparently since Jonathon Shiftko is now a single, this MM / two pack is no longer in the production queue? Was the variant of the Ape released elsewhere, or are we still limited to just the Sal Machiani version?

    Great funny post Met! Learned a bunch too about those scenes.

    I think you older collectors are stuck on the term “Movie Moment”, when they actually haven’t called them that since the latest cardback redesign.

      I found an older 2 pack at Target recently (must’ve been a return), and I saw that it said “Movie Moment” right on it. Now I know where the term comes from! I always thought it was odd when I heard people calling a 2 pack a Movie Moment, but now I know why! lol

      (MET: Mattel owns the term Movie Moment and yes, until CARS 2, it was called MM’s at retail – internally, they still call the 2-packs MM’s and it seems they try to adhere to putting 2-packs of CARS that are in a scene together).

      I still call Deluxe “Mega Size” too.

      Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to rotate the tennis balls on my walker.

  • Mack_me_Bucko says:

    I’m still surprised at this late date we have no idea on the character’s name. I have had one of these Audi for quite a while already … though I’ll buy it again just for the Ape repaint.
