Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Doc’s Precision Series Playset – PRE ORDER to Get it Made!

The Precision Series Doc’s Ornamental Valley Mechanical Clinic Playset will ONLY be made if they get pre-orders of 3,000.

So, if we don’t order, it does not get produced!

It’s a GREAT LOOKING set with tons of details.

Available ONLY at Shop.Mattel.

Priced at $129.99 – about the same as the other great sets.

The outside Sign and interior shop lights up!

Back office – amazingly detailed looking!

Become a backer of the Doc’s Clinic Campaign and make the next entry in the Disney and Pixar Cars Precision Series a reality! This Radiator Springs set includes premium features, true-to-movie play areas, lights that glow in multiple modes, and an exclusive 1:55 scale die-cast Doc Hudson vehicle.

  • Pre-orders open from 4/24/19 through 5/21/19
  • Minimum 3,000 backers needed before 5/15/19 to move this campaign into production no later than Fall 2020
  • Pre-orders will be accepted throughout the campaign period, even if the minimum backing goal is met before the end of the campaign
  • If the minimum backing goal is not met by the end of the campaign, the campaign will not go into production, and all pre-orders will be canceled

So, get your orders in or some cute kid dressed in a Lightning shirt is going to cry on your lawn.  🙂

Great details – Doc has a nice big screen.

You can practically feel the fire danger.

You also get the Precision Series Doc Hudson with light up headlamps!

AND if we don’t get this one, we are not going to get ay of the remaining ones!

And when the Precision Series Playsets go out of production? Flo’s V8 Cafe is going for $1,200! So, unlike voting, buy early and buy often!

    If we ever needed someone to stay late a few nights and just bust out a 1000 of these babies for the true of heart, it’s now. Maybe some bootlegger out there will make his bones by pulling this off.

  • BMW says:


    Counter stopped at 824.

    • quercy says:

      Anyone got his pre-order cancelled so far???

      • kfalcon77 says:

        I have not. I can’t give up. When HBO cancelled DEADWOOD right in the midst of the storyline the fans lost their minds, me inparticular. But 10,12 years later they made us the feature length film to wrap it up. Sometimes we get thrown a bone is what I’m saying.

  • quercy says:

    Very sad day…. Precision set is now dead.

  • John says:

    (extended through 6/4/19)

    705 ordered as of May 22

    • BMW says:

      Good news if Mattel would get the word out.

      • mlebowman says:

        With this being Doc Hudson’s building, has anyone tried reaching out to the Newman’s Own company and/or to Paul Newman’s estate to see if they could help out with the publicity?

        This just seems like Doc Hudson’s story from the original Cars movie playing out in real life: the steadfast racer being left in the dust for the next new hot thing. Why Mattel didn’t bring this set out 10 years ago instead of waiting until the Cars merchandising franchise was in its last gasps is beyond me.

        • quercy says:

          It is obvious the marketing team assigned for this product line are not serious long time collectors like us and will never be able to feed our appetite…. Again, we are unfortunately just a very small community interested to get the complete set of Precisions Radiator Springs sets… My project to build Radiator Springs is turning into ashes… ( a la Avengers end game) I am glad I did not invest yet on the infrastructure to install them…. Now I am wondering what I will do with them since their value will severely drop when collectors realize the announced complete precisions series will be, once again, like many others series… incomplete…

  • MackDaddy says:

    Okay. I pulled the trigger on 2 sets! So I must be number 600 & 601 seeing that the backer gauge at Mattel said 599 pre-ordered as of 5-14-19. I guess we all need to cross our fingers!

    Only 2399 to go! LOL!

    Hey Met, You should get a spiff from Mattel if we pull this off! That 600 came from T5AD!

    (MET: Nice! 🙂 ).

  • Adam says:

    This is such a shame. I have all the other cars and sets still in their shipping boxes waiting for when I finally had all the buildings to complete Radiator Springs. Looks like that’s never going to happen now…

    At this point I’d be happy if they made the outsides of the buildings with no interior features just to complete the look of the town.

    AT what point do I give up and list all my collection on ebay? 🙁

  • quercy says:

    Normally we see a very strong demand the first days, then the orders are fading… SDCC, collectors are aware long time before the event… we do not have this luxury this time. I do not see how they will have an average of 150 pre-order per day during the next 18 days when they did not reach 500 over a week… I am terribly desperate, frustrated and disappointed.

    (MET: There are still a few stores/re-sellers hoping to be able to place an order direct so they have not placed an order yet … there is no limit on the orders so spread the word but all hope is not lost. Still plenty of time …).

    • BMW says:

      The counter went up a few around 500. Its just a short period of time especially when Mattel has done zero advertising except to send out a email to Hot Wheels Collectors! Ugh!

  • shaunnydee says:

    I sent an email to a few of our toy stores in Aus. I doubt it will get anywhere, but at least I tried

  • mikecee81 says:

    They added a counter… 449 of 3000 so far but only 18 days left. They should have given this at least a 2 month window.

  • Later Mater says:

    Maybe John Lasseter, and/or the whole Pixar/Disney Entourage should order the 3000 units, to sell it off later. I’m sure they would get a discounted price, for the bulk order. Then at least it will get made. Just my two cents worth… 🙂

  • Later Mater says:

    The same goes for me, as does for Tad Ghostal. It doesn’t appear to be well publicized.

  • Mapplesoft says:

    I was really disappointed when rumors of cancellation started popping up… At least they’re giving customers a chance.

  • Mack_me_Bucko says:

    So Mattel is in essence running a “Kickstarter” style campaign for the future production of limited release items. It doesn’t bode well for the future, when they could have used an established and already operational system such as Kickstarter itself for their first attempt.

  • mikecee81 says:

    Could you possibly pin this somewhere on the front page so it may have a chance?

    (MET: Good idea, I can do that).

  • shaunnydee says:

    Done!!! Let’s get behind this and complete our towns!!!

  • Dickbaer says:

    I do not like to pay for a thing which is planned to be ready in Fall 2020! Is Mattel such a poor company that they could not afford getting it paid itself?

    (MET: Without a TRU, it was hard to get retailer commitment. Unlike TRU, this set is not by itself exciting enough – nothing shooting ut or popping out … non TRU toy stores are willing to carry almost anything under $40 but above that, they want things that shoot off for the 6-year old crowd … keep in mind, they will not charge you until they get ready to ship, they just want to know if you want it).

    • Dickbaer says:

      Hi Met, this is not correct. Here is the original text from the FAQ
      “You will be charged at the end of the campaign period if the minimum backing total has been reached. If not, you will not be charged, and your pre-order will be canceled.”

      (MET: I guess that makes sense so they know it’s not just a bunch of random ones).

  • quercy says:

    Not too surprising from Mattel to act this way… a little less than a month to get 3,000 pre order!!! I will be shocked if we reach 1,000 in that very short period of time. I do not have Facebook or Twitter like many others… I would never know… Any stores will publicize this ????… thank you T5AD but I am really pessimist about this… I feel like a hostage and only cars collectors have to pay the ransom… if they ever get contacted. 🙁

    • quercy says:

      I am doing a reply to my own comment to emphasis the lack of time to get 3,000 pre order of a $130 set…. 4-6 weeks is way too short. We need at least 6 months to get there…. sad, very sad this is happening to this particular set… and the next to follow… McQueen museum…. I am wondering if this situation would be if they started with these instead the repeated ones… just saying…

  • BMW says:

    The news on this set is on Facebook groups, twitter, and Mattel’s face book this morning.

  • Tad Ghostal says:

    I will preorder this because I MUST have it to continue building my Precision Radiator Springs, but I don’t have high hopes of this getting made. I hope it does, but this is the first I’m hearing of this.

    T5AD is my only source of Mattel Cars news, and if we’re only hearing about this now, it doesn’t appear that this drive is well-publicized.

    Fingers crossed!
