Six months after the first half of the puzzle came out the second two boxes have finally been released. All of the boxes at the store had their little car display shelves dislodged so you could not see what car was in the box. I wonder if bad glue in the packaging might have held up shipment of these two puzzles?

3/4 is London and contains a silver accented Lightning McQueen; almost identical to the silver McQ that comes in the "Finish Line Frenzy" game except the wheel rim is silver and the tires have painted lettering on them. Not very exclusive and a bit lazy from Mattel. (They have changed to box art and dropped the "exclusive vehicle" claim.)

4/4 is Porto Corsa and comes with a very nice Bernoulli with silver everywhere that is white on the regular car.

Pictures below. (last photo is all the 2011 specials together… unless I am forgetting something?)

A little underwhelming, especially the McQueen. Thanks for the info John, and congrats on being the first. It was starting to look like numbers 3 and 4 were never going to come out.

Corinne, here are the numbers on the boxes:

1/4 Radiator Springs   27084 93774

2/4 Tokyo                      27084 93775

3/4 London                   27084 95133

4/4 Porto Corsa           27084 95134

They were about $7.95-ish, basically you pay for the collector car and get a free puzzle. It took my four year olds all of two minutes to put together all four puzzles. The puzzles aren't challenging and they are very small too. (the road isn't wide enough to race 1:55 Cars on it)

If you aren't a completist I'd say grab the Bernoulli and pass on the McQ; especially if you already have the Finish Line Frenzy (silver) version.

They are in the puzzle area, very small boxes mixed in with all the other Cars puzzles. I think Met once said Mattel has a separate puzzle division?

The head designer after M came from games & puzzles and then went back after 8 months … probably the first item this person cranked out (took 3-minutes, went on schedule and budget as 2-month project? 🙂  ).

I will pick these up if I see them.  I got the first one on sale at CVS for $3, the 2nd one in a trade.  Haven't opened them yet, but my son is just now starting to be interested in puzzles, so it will be fun to open all four at once.  Too bad they aren't wide enough to race on.  He still stages a World Grand Prix on his play rug a few times a week.

My Target finally stocks the puzzles but, alas, only the Mater and Raoul ones. Can't catch a break here.

I've never seen them again; I wonder if they were recalled (defective packaging) and I happened upon two that escaped the recall? So far no one else seems to have found them.

I found #3 & #4 at a Target in Florida. Francesco in box was OK but McQueen was loose in his box.

Just an update. I've occasionally seen puzzles 3 & 4 at Target, always with the internal platform broken off.

TRU seems to have never received 3 & 4, I still see unsold 1s & 2s on their shelves. I used to move the puzzles over to the diecast aisle but that game got old eventually. Laugh

I predict there won't be any more made in this series.
