    great site. I love all the info. I was wondering, my son and I open all of the cars we get,but are still collectors trying to get them all. where do i go to get a list of all the cars available. the last set we got were the walmart exclusives which we were lucky enough to get all eight. thanks

    (METROXING: Well, this crazy hot, hot line is like no other – managing to sustain a near frenzy level for new releases for well over 16 months and NO END in sight! We have put together a little buying guide that might be of use and what to expect in the next few months and in 2008 … a Checklist? Check.- hope that helps!)

    My son really, really wants Frank the Combine. I found you while searching for him online, hoping some remote retailer would have him for sale. He’s asked for him as well as all the rest of the Cars gang for Christmas. I sure hope they come out with him soon! Thanks for the info.

    Does anyone know what they are making the teeth and nose ring out of?
    We have our ready to build.

    Thanks in advance.

    (METROXING: You know, your first sentence would not only make no sense at all but be banned as weird spam … in any post but here, it makes perfect sense 🙂 for the teeth, they might be using “scultpty” a clay like material that customizers use and then paint – most craft stores like MICHAELS & AARON BROTHERS should sell it – here is a giant box version at Amazon but you probably want to start with a smaller set and then work your way up to this … when you build the 10 Cozy Cone motels, send us a pic 🙂 … I presume the ring is from a place like MICHAELS – they seem to sell random craft things like it – but I’d just guessing – for some reason, when I go to MICHAEL’s, I get kind of sleepy …). If you do find the ring, or something similiar, I’ll update the post.

    Hi James,
    I just bought a Frank from Ebay, but not that particular one. This is the one I bought..

    I won the auction for 37.00. S/H was kinda high at 21.00. But my son REALLLY wanted a Frank for his 6th birthday ( which was today and thats when Frank arrived by UPS…YAY!!) I have to say I am quite impressed with this Frank. I will mention though that there were no headlights on ours. My son LOVES him! He is quite big so its good in relation to the scale of the die cast cars. Perfect size! He had Frank chasing Lightning McQueen and Mater all afternoon! haha! He is sturdy, although if he is played with roughly, his shaft and his steps that hang off the side of the cab might break off. I think you’ll be pleased with this version of Frank! I know we are! Good luck!

    Yes I had seen that one also, it kinda looks like hes wearing makeup like mascara or something, I ended up ordering the one i mentioned above and my son is very happy with it, he puts his toys through the ringer but its holding up well. It is all metal, and also in nice scale to his other disney cars. Looking at his i dont think anything will be breaking off anytime soon as he is always dropping it i think that would have happened by now (hes only 2 1/2) 21.00 for shipping does seem quite high!! I am waiting for the speedway of the south to be released so we can put that one away for him, he has pretty much a complete set right now, he has the ones he plays with, and the ones that are all unopened and put away. I think they will keep releasing new cars all the way up to the sequel then start all over again! The new minis are pretty cool! They have really gone overboard with the diff variations with these!!

    Rangsburg Red McQueen!! Only like 500 made! Grrr

    (MET: Actually 50 or 51).

  13. idont know if this is real but on ebay i found a frank on a woc card!

    (MET: There are people who make & sell custom cards – in fact, there’s someone selling a set of the Piston Cup Racers custom cards right now).

  14. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for posting this. My son will be turning 5 in a couple of weeks and is just obsessed with Frank. When I took a closer look at the ones on eBay, I was SO glad I didn’t make an impulse buy here! Sadly, I’m not surprised that sellers are trying to rip people off like that, but I really hope that people are aware of what they’re really getting.

    Some of the custom ones look really neat, but I’m not ready to spend that much money on something that my son will throw around the house and possibly break or lose in a few weeks. So…while I would LOVE to give my son a Frank for his birthday, I think we’ll just wait and see if they make a real one!
