Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Trainees – Collect ‘Em All

From CARS 3, the trainees set is almost complete (well, they are getting re-released with eyelid lines) …

Yes, the gray is not too exciting but the rims are nice … and it’s a nice range of colors.

You win as the ultimate CARS collector if you can actually name them. 🙂

    It is very hard to name only 10 ultimate Cars collector die cast since 2006. I did a list going through the years and pull out the ones in my opinion who deserve to be listed. My selection was based on many criteria such as the look of the car, how hard to find it was, how popular it is among the collectors, how I was able to get them and finally I let my heart make the final call. 🙂 I did separate SDCC, promo and D23 but still must be underline.
