Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 3: Toys R Us Event Today + Kmart Photos

Don’t forget today is the CARS 3 Event at Toys R Us …

It looks like the two freebies will be Lightning or Storm with trophy. NOTE – these are not exclusives but free is free.

Thanks for the heads up, “John H.”

“Michael VN” notes his store has them for sale at $5.99 so I guess the math is – spend $20 to get a free $5.99 vehicle or $40 to get $11.98 of value OR buy 2 for $11.98 …

OR wait until they arrive at other stores (part of the mainline at “normal” pricing) …

OR will these be priced regular singles in a few weeks?


What to do? What to do?

Thanks, “Michael VN.”

Let us know how it goes!

“Christina C.” sends along photos from last Saturday’s Kmart CARS event.

My son and I were the only ones there, so the manager gave us the store posters as they had no intention of displaying them!

And no, we didn’t buy the 6 cases our store received. We’re moving and my son asked for the empty boxes to pack up his collection…well, at least some of it!!!

    Called both Toys R Us stores in my area and both said they didn’t have any event going on. Risked it and went anyway and found that they never received shipment of the free give away and that all the stores in the area cancelled the event without notifying customers. They had the 5 for $10 but the stock was so diminished it was ridiculous. They had no back stock and had no word of any shipments coming in. They weren’t very keen on giving any figures away even spending the $20 in cars product. They claimed there was a problem with the vendor as to why they didn’t receive stock. Wasn’t impressed.

    (MET: Yep, my store had very little to choose from and no trophy CARS).

    Got to TRU around 11:00 got the 5 for $10 deal found Chet Boxkaar, Cal Weathers with “Cal” inscription over the door” and got both trophy cars and my boy won 4 out the 5 swims at his
    competition! What a day ! Hard to ask for more 😉

    (MET: Nice!)

    I went to the Toys R Us “event” today and took advantage of the $2 singles. I use the word event loosely, as they were not advertising the sale at all; however, when I checked out, the sales price did apply. I picked up 10 singles and the Jackson Storm with Piston Cup for $20.

      So as previously noted, my store had the “Event” from noon to two. I walked in at 11:55 — and someone had already swooped in hours before and bought outright all the Jackson Storm with trophy, and most of the LMQ with trophy. Jerks. They had exactly four LMQ remaining. Yesterday the manager had told me that they were getting “a truckload for tomorrow” — well, the pegs were just as bare today so who knows.

      I got the five for $10 to make that deal, and then bought the Jada 1:24 Mack for $20 to get the amount over $20 — and because I wanted him. Got one of the LMQ with trophy, since the trophy doesn’t list the racer’s name anyway.

      Mack is pretty nice, and coincidentally, today I am in the process of removing the Bulldog hood ornament from my old car, and patching the holes — preparatory to moving the Bulldog to my new car.

      • Stouffy says:

        The store I was at didn’t even put the free cars on the pegs. If you spent $20, then they let you choose which one you wanted. I was there at 9, but the sale on singles didn’t start until 10.

    My son had his first t-ball game at 1015 today so we didnt get to the TRU til about 1145. The feature wall was picked pretty clean, save for approximately 40 LmQ, and a few townies. Back in the toy dept they still had a handful of racers and a single RS-Classic, which WAS a part of the promo. No Case A Singles yet, so other than the RS-Classic (Bug Mouth LmQ) they didn’t have anything unique to our collection. So we picked up 4 duplicates and Bug Mouth to get the 5/ $10. The 4 duplicates were purchased on the 5/$15 from earlier this month so those, and the fifth will be going back. When it is all said and done, it’s $5 into my wallet and $2 back out of it. Or 5/$12. Not too bad!

    Oh-and LmQ Jackson w/ Trophies were apparently on sale here if we wanted one, whereas I heard another customer stating that the other store in our area was not selling them. Apparently, at that store they were holding off until tomorrow, to make sure they kept them in supply for the free gifts today. After the event, it’s fair game. As these are not TRU exclusives, we will wait til they hit mainline and probably retail $3.99 or $4.49 at Target or Walmart before buying.

    Hmmm, got to mine at just a bit after opening time, and they weren’t setting out anything until noon. So, back to doing other things until then.

    Love that kid’s enthusiasm!
