Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: More McQueens Than Sticks You Can Shake

Are you crying “UNCLE” or as they rain upon this Earth blocking out out the Sun, you just proclaim “I shall just buy them in the shade …”

Since these are not in the 1:55 line and not MINI’s, I won’t be buying them but you can start looking for them in a few weeks or a month from now …

An oversized Walkin’ Talkin’ Lightning McQueen with lights, talking feature and sounds … plus walking … “48 combinations of words and phrases,” (whatever that means) – around $49 retail.

First shown at Toyfair earlier this year – the packaging has changed slightly and they seem to using Radiator Springs Lightning McQueen rather than Lightning McQueen as shown at Toyfair. Boost & Chick Hicks are the other two in the first wave of release.

If I’m reading the press release info correctly, they each do DIFFERENT stunts – McQueen does a barrel roll, Chick does a forward flip and Boost does ‘drifting’ as an good Tuner car should. I believe the retail price is around $9.99 each.

They are mostly/all/substantially plastic.

    The “Movie Stunts” seem the same as the Speed Racer ones. They really do flip and my boys enjoy playing with them. I don’t think I’ll buy these though.

    Are the movie stunts die cast?

    We haven’t got them here, surprise, surprise, but Jack would love them.

    I would buy all of them (twice) if they are die cast.

    (MET: Virtually all plastic – technically not diecasts but toy manufacturers now think diecast means nearly anything from a mould … so they use the term loosely – most collectors don’t).
