Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Lost in the Desert Van & Mini

Coming in 2015 – “John H.” sends along some early open pics … Coming as a 2-pack?


With the other “Van’s.”



& Van San …




Segmented Mini and the new Desert Mini.

They might’ve overdone what should be weeds – looks like Martian BRAIN …

Too bad we didn’t get this expression. 🙂

In CARS 2, Van’s case is filled with maps – yea, that GPS still has some bugs, obviously.


John H. also sends along a screenshot of Toys 3 where Van & Mini makes an appearance.


Thanks for the great pics, “John H.”

    I think they look great and can’t wait to pick up this 2 pack.

    Are these guys from a scene in the first CARS?

  • Mack_me_Bucko says:

    What’s really weird is that the dust effect appears to be several decals that cover the entire body, it’s not a painted on effect. I’ve got a Mini sitting here, she looks grand.

  • cooltrainerpaul says:

    I’ve just noticed in that pic there of van with the maps blowing away who is the black mustang on the far right have they ever been named, they look pretty neat, and I love all things mustang! Never noticed it before are the eyes in headlights like Celine? Never never knew there were any other cars like this!

    Ps I actually like the dust effect mini and van!

      No their eyes are just closed probably, they were celebrating and the still frame was taken just as they closed their eyes to cheer, there is another red car on the far left that is doing the same thing. If the eyes were in the headlights the windows would be clear.

        The eyelids are the same color as their paint.

        I bet the reason we haven’t been seeing a lot of distribution since 2014 has something to do with the shipping problems they have been having at the harbor. It’s a huge mess, I collect marvel legends and the new series has not even been solicited yet. I finally finished my cars 2014 set this past Saturday. I walked into Kroger late that night to find Henry motisse, Marco and Marcelo and interview Francesco just sitting on the pegs. Huge shocker. I haven’t seen anything so ce Sally with tattoo case and that was late November. So I just need the last two super chases and I’m done. I hope they can get this problem fixed this year, I would love for it to go back to the way it was in 2013, I founds multiples of everything.

      Nope, it’s just blinking.

    Hi, I would ask John in Missouri, if you have a photo
    Van (cars1) with Stickers?
    Thanks bye and GOOD YEAR-SEDEMA

  • Mack_me_Bucko says:

    They’re already showing up back-door on eBay, they aren’t customs, sadly.

  • John in Missouri says:

    Are these rough prototypes or just customs by a 6-year-old? Very disappointing.
