Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Easter CARS For Every One

Thanks for the nice pics, “BMW.”

While on the surface, it appears that the Easter CARS are a TRU exclusive.

Normally, a “direct import” is an exclusive. If you can convince Mattel to sell you an exclusive, you pay upfront and they ship it to you as a direct import.

But in this case, more are coming. GetMeCollectibles says they are getting their shipment next week. If you’re interested in a full case, shoot them an email.

So,it is a little confusing as to why TRU got a special “direct import” marking on their cases – maybe they didn’t buy enough? Or they bought themselves a few week exclusive?

Thanks for the photos, “BMW.”

    You are welcome Met. This direct import marketing is interesting.

    There are a lot of items that can be direct import or bought normal. DI gives me lower prices, but then i need to handle the shipping of the items through a broker which, depending on how many of an item i get, could mean it cost more. Some items are DI only, most can be DI or buy from Mattel

    Or with TRU in such tight financial straights, Mattel told them to pony up with cash first if they wanted something with an obvious shelf life that Mattel won’t take in return.
