Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Where Be The CARS (at Retail) …

Carl P asks, “Where are all 2021 Deluxe by the way?” (or CARS?)

Stuck on a sea cruise or in ports …

“A record-breaking 44 container ships are stuck off the coast of California.” (READ HERE)

You can click on each dot to check the ship info (LINK). Of course, you have to pay to see it in detail (like which port it left from).

Each container ship can hold 10,000 to 22,000 containers so you can do the math and that’s just the ones on shis, there are a few hundred thousand at the port waiting for trucks/truck drivers and trains.

Since CARS are not perishable, presuming Target, Walmart and Amazon does not cancel – WE will get an huge (insane?) amount of CARS on the pegs in a month/two months? Will 2022 CARS be pushed back or will we just get a massive mix? And Target which is quick to mark down might mean a massive sale on massive stock of CARS in early 2022 since they just follow whatever the computer says?

It’s going to be a wild few months whatever happens.

    It gives me a headache thinking about who’s in charge of putting what containers where, putting them on these trucks or trains to go to these cities… yikes. Apparently Amazon and Walmart are paying dock workers premium wages to get their ships unloaded first. So, I guess if you’re looking for new CARS, head to Walmart?

    Remember though that the 10,000 to 22,000 number is for “TEU” — “Twenty Foot Equivalents” — so halve that number for the loading of standard 40 foot containers.

    At Home Depot, we’re not quite so far behind, but then, we tend to load ships 80% to 90% full of just our product. Mattel likely shares space with many other vendors; and some smaller manufacturers may only get 15 to 20 containers a year.

    Uh, it’s been a pretty wild last year and a half! I’m just praying that all this craziness is over soon! 🙂
