Mattel Disney Pixar CARS & Mattel Hot Wheels MIA Retail

Well, one store got stock in – though it’s not 2014 anymore and wasn’t this case out about a year ago?


This box set was finally spotted at one Target – good price.


But this Target has so few CARS, they put what they had of Hot Wheels on the pegs.

Cars HW

Apparently Mattel’s plan is to supply so few CARS that you buy Hot Wheels – oops, the wheels are off on that plan.


Er, what is wrong with this picture?


You can now do your own Back to the Future – Original ST crossover story …

    I’ve always felt sorry for the child who has a birthday during the summer. Totally skunked if he or she wants anything but video games.

  • BMW says:

    Targets in Texas got in many cases of 2014 cars in April to early May. Luckily they were all Super Chase J cases with Caratekas.

  • carslover says:

    my local target looks just like that

    they have had 3 singles, one deluxe, one ice racer and one neon on the pegs for over a month

    and their distribution center is right here

    the closest store to their DC and and they have not had a new case of cars in the last 2 months

    and when you tell the employees their stock count is wrong they could care less

    it is a good thing walmart has most of the new cars as target is a complete waste of time

    My target here has not restocked once since November last year. On the other hand I have been able to find cars at one walmart, I have scored their restock every time. Other than that nothing.i am caught up though because of that one wal mart except for frank. I have yet to see him anywhere.

  • tzdtmm says:

    there has been nothing new at the stores since the Easter bins at Walmart with Greg Candyman, Hooman, Chauncy Fares, absolutely nothing


    • John in Missouri says:

      When I search Cars singles on BrickSeek.com, the number of Targets in the U.S. that have singles in stock has dropped to 84%. It was in the high-90’s just a couple months ago.

      • Capitalregionnycarsfan says:

        I saw that too and that is counting the ones like around me that have less than 10 in stock.

        • quercy says:

          Oh ! My Target are full of singles !!!… from 2014… and way too many Neons and Ice racers from the first wave… we are still running on the 2014 calendar extension… 😉

  • John in Missouri says:

    My local Target has 590 Hot Wheels in stock (down from 1,122 on February 20). The next two closest have 71 and 1,200.

    That is what the Cars section looks like in some stores around here the last couple of months. It has picked back up though. I’ve also never seen a Hot Wheels section so empty.
