After a little bit of a wait , a collector buddy in Japan gathered quite a load of JDM toy goodness for me. He amassed quite a LARGE assortment of the newely released Tomica/Tomy Disney CARS 2 and CARS repackaged items for me. I was patiently waiting the shipment of the goods and looked forward to them but there was no comparison to when I opened the box to view them all in front of me.
He kindly included a few mini poster/pamphlet type literature’s which of course were in Japanese but the images of course are universal!
I asked the collector friend to grab the re-released CARS 1 characters that were repackaged in the new CARS 2 box decos. And I have heard that they may or may not have different expressions.
Part of the goodie box was the CARS 2 new release of the Tomica launchers. The first was includes Fransceco, Lightning McQueen, and Shu. The launchers double as cases for each car. And an added bonus with these, you can connect them together. In the individual pictures of the cars you may notice they have different expressions than the boxed singles.
The VERY FRESH released Disney CARS 2 Characters:
There was also a kick butt “PIT CREW” 3 car set released which was a must have. It included Luigi, Guido, and Fillmore all who have earphones included to wear. Very nice touch!
The last cool editions were the 2 newer variations to the mack hauler and mack hauler Lightning McQueen combo.
And last but not least is a very cool and unique playset
