Mattel Disney Pixar CARS On the Road: Road Trip Mater & Road Trip McQueen for Completists

There is an interesting Road Trip Mater & Road Trip Lightning McQueen that will keep card completists up at night. 🙂

On one hand, it appears to be a 2023 card 2-pack …

Mater looks essentially the same as he did in 2022 and in the CARS On the Road packs.

It’s the “regular” Mater with the normal sized tow hook.

Road Trip Lightning looks the same as with all 2022 Lightning releases that came with the tow hook hole at the base, it looks to be a feature carried over to 2023 *it makes sense just to make one base for all the Lightning McQueen’s*).

As it loses the snipe on the other 2-packs (NEW 2022).

But the card back has the copyright has the © 2021 meaning it’s a 2022 release and not © 2022 which ,means it’s a 2023 release …

On one hand, we should see plenty of these of in 2023 but based on the evidence, it looks to be the last 2022 2-pack release …

    I bought this set as I missed it the first time. Mater actually has the larger tow hook so he can tow Lightning. The back of his car has a notch for the enlarged tow hook. Another thing I didn’t notice before is that Lighting has the “tar” splotches on his right front fender from towing Bessie. So this set represents Lightning in the middle of his sentence repairing the road.

    If shelves in stores were loaded and there was more than one new character per case we would not talking about this 2-pack… it is very sad we are down at this level of excitement…
