TRU has two new 2-packs in the wooden Cars line, both Xmas themed. (maybe a preview of next year's die-casts?)

Finn & Mater:

and I saw this new version of the classic Mille Bornes with a Cars theme, that's Rip on the 25 milles card:

Old news by now but this same TRU pegged huge quantites of Carlo and Miles today also. Enough so they won't dissapear anytime soon. Laugh

Cool wood Cars… and I remember playing that card game growing up!

 

As for Rip, he is out in the Squinkies line as well… I have all 11 racers in Squinkie form!

Don't know of an actual list, but I guess I could make one if I have the time.  I can list the packs that I know have been released, and the contents are 98% different in each one… I think I only have less than 5 repeats total, if even that many.  Here is what's out:

4 Pack w/Ramp

Series 1

Series 2

Series 3

 

12 Pack

Series 1

Series 2

Series 3 – NEW

Series 4- NEW

 

Playsets

Globe Dispenser (came with 3 or 4 squinkies)

Mack Display (came with 2 squinkies)

 

I have also seen foil packs at TRU of 1 or 2per pack, and they had both series 1 and series 2… not sure what are in those, and what the series number corresponds to, if anything.

I think that covers what I know about, and someone can chime ini  if they know of anything I missed!

Thanks! I've seen sets 1 to 3 for a while, and was wondering if there was a new set out. I'll look it up!!

I looked up their site and found a PDF with the new sets of 12 shown. There are some neat ones like the Allinol globe character but also non-car ones like the camera and a bomb. They're already starting duplicates…with guns, etc.

Their charm escapes me, but I'd try to get a cool rare character if one came along, like the Geargrinder or Leland. (They could easily do a cubed Leland like Lego.) Thanks for the tip, Indykjt!

Yeah, they do have variants, but very few actual duplicates.  A couple of the variant Mater's are even facial expression ones!

I think I like them because of the amount of detail in them, seeing as how small they are and all one mold.  Plus, they are a bit easier to collect!!!

These look pretty cool, but an EASY pass for us.  Unfortunately, our kids love for Cars is fading fast and Mattel is not doing much to keep their attention …. sigh … Cry
