Today I received a few more Cars from the ever useful Chinese backdoor.

 

Brian Fuel (Cars 2, in the pub scene), the newest hydraulic Ramone (red with lightning stripe as seen at the California race in Cars), and "exhausted Van" from the very end of Cars.  Previously I'd received 'exhausted Mini" so that set is done.  All are very nicely done, and the only thing I'll point out is that now Ramone's "legs" are plastic, and not diecast.

 

The tumbleweed in Van's rooftop unit looks less brainlike than it appears in close up pics, luckily.

I re-watched the scene in the Left Turn Inn, and Brian Fuel is the barman.  Also showing up on eBay backdoor is a Krate Rainson-Wash repaint ("Trafalgear") as one of the patrons of the Inn.

 

Also, upon inspection, Brian Fuel is not just another repaint, since his bow tie, mustache, and hat are different than the previously released Muggsy Liftsome.

The red John Lassetire with surfboard is showing up as cheap as $30, and Chuy hit today … I suspect these will be in the product line-up for 2015 as well.  It's going to be a good year for collectors if this is the case.

I agree that Chuy looks to be coming as a Deluxe Toons single. But I really doubt the red Lassetire Surf truck will ever see production. To do so would be a slap in the face to those that received them as thank you gifts at Pixar.

No other special has ever gone on to public sale.

As a "Thank You" gift, it had special packaging and a signature from Lassiter himself, correct? As a product sold to the public, it will just be another toy, so it could be made available.

 

We'll have to wait and see!

Showing up last night were three new ones. A dark blue version of Jonathon Shiftko, a light blue Jaguar (Hobbscapp style) and one of the clown cars. It still looks to be a great year for collecting.
