Mattel Disney Pixar CARS Diecast: Tach O Mint – And Then There Was One

Coming in the first singles case for 2015 …

Tach O Mint

That makes it 35 of 36 Plastic Tire Piston Cup Racers.*

Tach O Mint

And yes, he’s a real member of the O-Mint family, unlike SpareMint, the ******* blue headed galoot trying to horn in on the old-money O-Mint name.

* Though technically, it’s still 34 out of 36 if you count that the aggro Dale Jr. expression while available as a rubber tire release has never been re-released with plastic tires.

Dale Jr MSOS

For those joining us today … the other Piston Cup re-release racer missing is the Apple Piston Cup racer (still only available from the MSOS set).

Our post on spotting counterfeits from 2009.

    I’m with MET, The all time #1 is the Speedway of the South, then Complete 1st year Set in the red box with only 500 made & the UK Release of Desert Art with No Name plate. WOW!

    I found my first ‘No Stall’ 2 days ago so now I’m down to missing just 8 plastic tire speedway cars. I nearly passed on him thinking I had him but I fortunately had my list in my wallet. There’s nothing like checking off another needed car.

    This may possibly be the funniest ******* I have read here and the kind of thing that keeps me coming!

    I love your sense of humor Met! Keep up the good posts!! 😆

    (You even had my wife laughing!)

    Sounds like 2015 is definitely off to a great start! I’ll be scooping up as many Tach O Mints as I can find.

    So glad I didn’t buy him off of eBay. This is great news for me. I hope they put more than one tachomint per case… yeah right!

    I think a lot of people will be pleased on reading this. So my Motor speedway Set’s uniqueness is now down to 2 cars and a nice display box. But the Cars in the set are still the originals with their impressive finishes and that is for me the holy grail of Cars regardless of how many times the race cars get re released.
