    Why are they no longer producing Cars shorts? Mater Tales? Protect and Serve would have been very welcome on that DVD/BluRay/Digital. What is happening with all this?… I would not have been surprised if the surprise was to find a short about Road Trip to explain the story behind that mysterious release (incomplete by the way) last year… What a curious parallel universe Cars is would say Doc Brown…

    I know what the best Cars3 diecast is going to be: end credits mater covered with Rust-Eze red and gold foil

  • Later Mater says:

    No 3D version again???

  • toyfountain says:

    In the bonus BlueRay, make sure to view the clip titled “Cars to die(cast) for” if it is included in your version. There’s a special appearance, I won’t say more……

  • quercy says:

    I was expecting like a bunch of new cars items into an aisle display or end cap to underline the movie… no…. nothing.

  • John says:

    The Walmart exclusive may be the only way to get the Radiator Springs 500½ short on DVD other than the large scale McQueen model released in 2014.

    So I believe if you buy it from Target today you get a free book with the DVD, I don’t believe anyone else has any ‘extras’ like that?

    I remember when Cars 1 was released, I had bought the Walmart 2-pack to get the Rascal Flatts DVD with it, and Best Buy had the neat 4 Car diecast packaging and a lenticular poster (which I still have).

        The Walmart version sounds pretty good with RS 500 1/2
