OTHER NOTABLE CHARACTERS?
Mario Andretti’s assistant – based on a Lamborghini Urraco?
ANNOUNCED! COMING IN A MULTI-PACK WITH MARIO!
Maserati’s (Schumacher’s friends)
The Other Sarge Boot Campers
CHEAP TO DO VERSIONS
Pit Crew Mack
Mater with Blue Hood
Race Official with Different Flags (Checkered, Green, Yellow, & White)(well, if Mattel wanted to annoy us – one for each main retailer :-( )
Chick Hicks Pit Crew (sans mustache – ideally, we would get metal mustaches but then some kid would eat one and there goes the whole CARS ballgame).
CREWS WITH PIT STOP STAND?
(though you’d probably get crew chief plus 2 pit crew plus stand for $11.99?)
ANNOUNCED! CHICK HICKS WITH BRUISER PIT CREW!
Their Luxury Suite
OTHER BOX SET POSSIBLES?
TV Director Diorama (with lencular screens)
Barb Wire McQueen Diorama (actually sways – battery to operate Sheriff headlamps)
Wrecked King with McQueen (lever underneath guides and pushes King)
ANNOUNCED! COMING IN A MULTI-PACK WITH LIGHTNING MCQUEEN!
Plow McQueen with Plow & Rubble (Just a McQ with plow might not be much fun … plus Mattel can charge an extra $2 for rubble that costs them $.09)
Replay Booth with Lencular (of the finish)
RANDOM CAMERA CREW
MORE PIXAR OTHER?
THE RUSTED ONES
CROWD (what are ‘real life’ car model equvilients?)
AND OF COURSE, CARS WITH FOAM ATTACHMENTS
(of course, that’s Mia & Tia in the middle)
MORE ‘WAY TOO MUCH METAL’ TO BE COST EFFICIENT
Maybe plastic, maybe it can come unassembled to really make it cost effective …
I’m sure they’ll get around to “McQ’s Biggest Fan,” RV on the right but hopefully in scale even if it’s plastic …
Because who would pay $399 for the RV 50 pack?
TRACTOR TRAILERS (also plastic)
EVENTUALLY, BRING $499 & A SPARE BEDROOM
There will be a near life size California Raceway set :-)
Because our collection will look something like this when the CARS 2 SEQUEL comes out and if they can name 217 CARS with the technology/rendering & CGI of CARS, they should be able to cram in about 999 CARS for the sequel …
Now, of course, this isn’t complete … but it’s some of the possibilities … as Mattel is going to milk this line for all its worth until the sequel refresh of 2011.
To recap all our major posts – here is the entire 1:55 line recap.
Here’s a preview of the Blu-Ray HD feature which names 217 CARS.
Brief recap of why it’s so difficult to buy.
