Totally a very very late post and a thank you to my international buddies. I had gotten a few international carded Disney CARS Tunerz. The card art is really the only difference but a difference I think is kind of cool.
The last few weeks have been GREAT for any Disney CARS collector. As various stores have been dropping multiple new releases,exclusives, and gift sets. The following have been my pickuos in various formats that didn’t fit into a specific category.
Starting it off with the newest lenticular singles case stuff either case P or R or S. whichever its is the contents were good stuff.
Chase Mater with oil can is ok at best. It might have been better if the oil can was actually ATTACHED TO Mater not just a separate accessory.
Toys R Us EXCLUSIVE Radiator Springs Chase set with the Tunerz and Sheriff.
Toys R US Mater Saves Christmas 3 pack with Santa Car Whoo Hee Mater and Hot Shot Lightning McQueen
This was a cool Lenticular Toyko Mater puzzle from the Disney Store.
Target stores exclusive 9 pack Speedway Set with 4 exclusive media/fan guys : Tim Rimmer, Houser Boone, Timothy Twostroke , and Dash Boardman
I had heard several reports of people finding brand new HOT Disney Tokyo Mater TOON CARS at Toys R Us across the United States. So I figured I would check my local Toys R Us and I SCORED!!! Very nice pickups since there had been a HUGE DROUGHT! I had hit several other TOYS R US stores to hopefully hook up fellow collectors with no luck.
The Disney Shorts version of Tokyo Mater and Dragon McQueen models have been struck on first by Tomica/Tomy. Mattel has yet to announce any release of these two yet, beyond the CARS TOONS that were showcased at The San Diego Comic Convention. To most these don’t hold weight to the Godfather that is Mattel. But I like them very much.
Their box art:
They also come with their own collectors cards:If anyone out there can translate the script on the cards shoot me a comment or email. I am very curious to know what it says.
