We opened our McQueen Alive! today that we got from Santa Claus and he doesn't work.  When I plug in the gas nozzle, the red light on the Allinol just flickers and cuts off.  It will not stay on, so I'm thinking it will not charge.  After leaving it and trying to turn it on, Lightning will begin to say Ka-Chow but cut off and not do anything.  Has anyone else had this problem?Cry

I never even saw a McQueen Alive except right when it came out. It was not on sale so I didn't even bother getting it. Sad to hear that yours doesn't work.

Man, return shipping back to the North Pole is going to be expensive too. Sorry to hear this! Frown

The Mcqueen Alive I got for Christmas is fine.  Sorry to hear about yours.

The little plug in is hard to see and the packaging is just as Met said, very difficult to remove without damaging the box.

I found it was pretty cool for about 15 minutes then it got too repetitive, probably need to give it more time.  Were your batteries fresh?

Ours wasn't DOA, but after playing with it a little it seems the third mode has disappeared, it just says the same things over and over and scoots back and forth a few inches, doesn't drive much…

Going to attempt to return it to Kmart today, but they are horrible about taking stuff back when you don't have the receipt.  Hopefully they will let me exchange the item for a new one and I won't have to go ballistic in front of the few customers they have left.Laugh

Do you have the Kmart rewards thing? If so, they should have emailed a copy of your receipt to you… otherwise, "Now let me see your war face!"

Yeah, I realized that after I posted so I took my e-receipt with me to customer service so I didn't have any problem exchanging it.  The new one seems to be charging fine with a steady red light, so I hope it will work good.  Didn't need to use the warface yet.Laugh

Final update:  Thanks for your responses.  The new McQueen Alive works great.  It is hard to get him into the third mode, but he is really cool when you do.  The kids thought he was great when he drove underneath the oven and complained about taking the wrong exit.Laugh

Eight Alives have sat on the top shelf at our local Kmart since they were released. Now moved to the endcap and priced at $23 each.

Mine just showed up yesterday from the Target deal.  I haven't gotten him into the 3rd mode yet, but it took hours for him to charge and work properly.

$23.50 on line from Kmart:

Probably OK to order since Alive has its own SKU number.

We went out of town and left ours at home so I didn't have much time to fool with him. How do you get him into the third mode? Up, down, up, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start?

Are you talking about some video game cheat code? Laugh Just kidding, but that seems pretty complicated.
