Now, I have read PLENTY of things swirling through the interweb regarding this Collectors event and the CARS that were released. Hopefully I can clarify for anyone who reads this. NONE of these CARS characters are EXCLUSIVE to this event. The ONLY THING EXCLUSIVE is the packaging. This will be the ONLY time you will see these CARS on a World of CARS package. Edwin Kranks will be released in the next 2009 B case, but he will be on a Race O Rama cardback. Rescaled Fred with bumper stickers (CHASE) was released in the 2008 T case. And expect the regular rescaled Fred to be released either in the C case or shortly after also on a Race O Rama cardback. Shiny Wax and Sparemint have been released in the 3 pack G case. Expect to see all the other racers come out in 2009 most likely with a Race O Rama cardback as well! I hope this helps to clear the air somewhat from all the rumors floating around.
I came home with 2 of these overflowing with goodies!
