Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Lightning Storm McQueen S.D. Comic Con (Update – 5k Available)

PLEASE NOTE – This post & this website has moved to TakeFiveADay.com – to read the latest Lightning Storm SD CC News, please click on the link above or click on the logo. Thanks!

For those who missed the earlier preview & announcement, Mattel will be selling a special Lightning Storm McQueen at the San Diego Comic Con Starting July 24.

For those unfamiliar with Toy Show/Comic Con Exclusives, we covered the basics in our original post.

Basically, this will be a special exclusive CAR available just at this show.

While, it’s pretty clear from the photo above – it is now confirmed it’s the Ransburg chrome that McQueen will be sporting. Now, will later Lightning Storm McQueen’s return to merely a shiny blue like the shiny red of Radiator Springs/Crusin’ McQueen or will it return to plain ‘ole Dinoco McQueen blue? No word yet. Like any other release, until we see a prototype photo or an official announcement … Or of course, even when/if Lightning Storm McQueen will appear as a single card CAR. Not trying to stir the pot of supply-demand pricing, just answering a question some of you will ask.

No one knows. “Regular” LS McQueen could come out right after the show on the store shelves (most likely not exactly the same CAR but who knows?) or even a few weeks later like the time gap of the original Blu Ray McQueen exclusive at the CAAF auction to when it was offered with the DVD to the general public two weeks later. Or perhaps the CAR will be a Ransburg blue but not come with the stand or base? So, like the Motor Speedway of the South, we don’t know what the future entails but we do know that on July 24th, we can buy these in SD.

AND I don’t know if we’re getting this exact black base but the package includes the clear stand AND the black base with artwork above so if not exactly this – it’s be very similar. This version here is the near final version of the car, the stand and the base.

UPDATED (The plexiglass cover is NOT included).

The plexiglass cover IS included, wow – EXCELLENT!

And as the best infomercials might ask – what would you be willing to pay? πŸ™‚

Actually, priced very nice …

It’s $15 and even better news, no apparent limit to purchasing … something tells me the line at Mattel will not be short … this is definitely a great deal, I’ve seen feeble ‘exclusives’ where all you get is a sticker on the regular card – this is a lot of work – great sculpt, great add-ons, great stand with display AND cover – all for $15 … nice.

SECOND UPDATE – Looks like a run of 5,000 – the show runs 4 days plus Preview Night.

See you all in SD.

(on a personal note, while I am scheduled to go to Comic Con, it will be a quasi-working week for me – meeting people, attempting to live blog, etc … etc, etc … while I will be buying things, I don’t want to make any promises to anyone else since I’m just going to throw everything into a giant suitcase – my personal stuff, I’m not that picky – I’m mostly an opener so if it gets dinged, no biggie but I don’t want to promise anything to anyone. So, while I will try and pick up some extras, most likely they’ll just be a giveaway here or used as trade – I’m too lazy to do much eBay posting … so sorry but I PROMISE you I’ll spend much time at the Mattel booth … if you spot me, I’ll be the fake janitor with the fake mustache emptying their trash every 2-minutes πŸ™‚ … don’t blow my cover πŸ™‚ … also note, if you plan on going, buy your tickets quick – last year, the weekend was a SELL OUT and they do NOT sell tickets at the venue so good luck and see you there … and remember, I’m disguised as the janitor, for any woman coming, I highly recommend the Leia Slave Bikini outfit and for guys, the Hello Kitty Darth Vader outfit … we’ll work out the secret handshake & eye signals later πŸ™‚ )

    Any west coasters that are going and willing to pick up one for those of us on the East Coast, please let me know donovan32257@hotmail.com

  2. jackdaddy2008

    You know I need one!

  3. Annie

    Anyone for a road trip……

  4. Annie

    I live in the east NC actually

  5. georgehp

    I am in Nor Cal. Not East Coast but still to far.

    I would love if some one can pick one up for me to, please.

    Thank you so much.

    jperez@wsgr.com

  6. will they be numbered?

    sorry had to…:))

  7. carsmama

    Once again – if anyone is willing, put me on a list…Please please please. The road trip might be a little long from Nebraska. I would be happy to reimburse plus some.
    Funny Nick – kind of πŸ˜‰

  8. EM

    I would definitely pay for someone’s effort if they would pick me up one.

    THX

    eric.colo@yahoo.com

  9. collectormom

    I would like one too pretty please with sugar on top!

    Maybe if we had some willing attendees they could make a list of how many to get for those of us not able to attend. You know you won’t get stiffed on the price and shipping costs.

  10. jackdaddy2008

    I will buy one on ebay from you in advance.

  11. Noel

    It looks like I’ll have to shell out the cash for one of these on eBay if I really want one.

  12. Robert from the Netherlands

    Hello,
    I really want this car too.
    So if anyone is so nice to help me.
    Thanks.

    Greetz from the Netherlands
    Robert

  13. Carsmama-
    no worries- I’m looking for my SotS set to be numbered too, so in a way- the joke is about me too!

  14. jackdaddy2008

    Carsmama?

    What is your avator?

    It looks like some intergalactic power source come to steal our souls!

  15. carsmama

    jackdaddy – it’s an everlasting gobstopper! from charlie and the chocolate factory movie.

  16. msully

    Carsmama, I KNEW IT! I was just about to ask you if that’s what it was.

    Luigi is mine until I can make a cute one of Mrs. The King.

  17. jackdaddy2008

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

    Do you like my kid?

    I might swap him for something stereotypical, I never liked him anyway!

  18. msully

    I’m going to pick up a bunch of the LS McQ’s guys.

    When the time gets closer, I’ll start a list and hopefully others here will volunteer to pick some up too and we’ll be able to get enough for everyone. Otherwise, I think I will be testing the whole “no limit” deal.

    But hey, as a San Diegan I should be encouraging you all to come out for it. There are tons of fun things to do in SD, especially if you have kids. SeaWorld, the Zoo, Legoland, plus Disneyland is just over an hour away and you can go check out the Cars art exhibit at the Petersen and go to the Mattel store! Heck, you can even do a road trip and take Route 66 out, make a whole Cars vacation of it.

    For you in the EU, the conversion rate will make the vacay a steal. So far this Spring I have noticed more Brits in San Diego than ever before.

    What am I thinking? You could bring an extra suitcase, load up on Cars and start your own UK Ebay business. Woohoo!

  19. msully

    He’s very cute JD! He’s a keeper.

  20. msully

    As an aside, went to WM this week and they had NO singles, MM or 3 packs at all, none. They had a handful of minis and that was it. Not only that, but the space alloted for them was one pegstrip at the end of the aisle and an endcap.

  21. collectormom

    msully you’re AWESOME! For those of us who can’t attend we will be eternally grateful and will praise your name in every post πŸ™‚

  22. Thekid

    Just like many others, I am desperate to get one. If anyone is willing to help, please email me.

    pupsterpup@yahoo.com

  23. Noel

    msully,

    If you could put me on your list, that would be great. If not I’ll go the other route but I’d also like to help you for your trouble.

  24. MCL Sydney

    Msully or anyone going to Comic Con…can you please please kindly pick one up for me, as it is impossible to get one from Sydney…If only this happen in early May, I would’ve went. Anyway please email me loefti@bigblue.net.au and you’ll be pleased with the reward….thx MCL Sydney

  25. Terri

    I am going to Comic Con too. I am planning on taking extra money to buy as many as I can. I will have them for people on this site as well. Msully, maybe we can coordinate and try to get one for everyone who wants one. I am surprised by the no limit thing. I will be anxious to see if that is true. If there is a limit I will be with two other people who will help me get them.

    Also, my brother who has collected Hotwheels for a very long time ran into a Matel rep at his local WM today. She told him that the Movie Moments have been discontinued and no retailers will be carrying them. If true, I think I will have to breakdown and buy a case from 1Stop before they are gone. This might be the only way to get them now.

    (MET: I’ll look into and let you know … though we won’t get any answers until Tuesday, of course. I think you’ll find better pricing from our sponsor, ChildrensToyCloset.com in any regards).

  26. Richard

    Hi, another resident of the UK who would love to hear from a kind fellow cars fan who could pick up a car for him at comic con.
    Please, if you can help I would love to hear from you….
    Thanks Richard.

    richard@oughton1.freeserve.co.uk, or
    ebay: joshuado1

  27. Chris

    WELL JUST LIKE EVER OTHER PERSON ON THIS POST, I TOO NED ONE. SO IF ANY ONE IS WILLING TO PICK ONE UP AND MAKE A LITTLE EXTRA $ I WILL GLADLY PAY FOR TIME AND EFFORT. LET ME KNOW AT CHENGY13@AOL.COM
    THANKS

  28. jackdaddy2008

    TERRI/MSULLY –

    I love Anchorman, that is my fav film, its set in San Diego, so if you bump into Burgundy, get my Lightning Storm Mcqueen signed by him for me!

    I will buy one form you via ebay before the conference to save your cash flow, maybe 2 actually.

    Just add some commission, ebay/paypal fees and shipping to the costs, and I will buy them.

    Contact me through ebay, my id is – jackdaddy2008

  29. Matt

    Have been an avid member of this site for a while now, and am from the Midwest (Nebraska). Would like to be officially on a list for those of us who cannot make the trip out to San Diego to get this car. Thank you for those of you who can help the rest of us out.

    My email is mthurber13@hotmail.com. Thanks again… We’ll see what kind of conspiracy theory we can drum up with this release, but the case in and of itself for this car makes $15 a no-brainer. Will pay all costs associated with shipping, etc…

  30. Matt

    Carsmama – Have you seen anything new lately… I haven’t even really made my rounds in a couple of weeks due to the fact that it has been a waste of gas. Any word from anyone when the new cases will be released?

  31. Matt

    Terri / MSULLY

    Sorry for the triple post everyone, but I did not read all the comments before posting. I am with Jackdaddy on this one. If one or both of you contact me before hand, I would like to buy 2, one for me, and one for my 3 year old. I would also front you the cash for cash flow purposes, and to ensure that I am on a list. Contact me through email, or on this site to set something up. A pre-sale thing on a remote part of ebay may be the best, but I am open to suggestions. You could put it in the missle parts section of ebay so those of us looking to pre-buy for cost issues could do so, and that may be a way to set up a list so to speak… Later everyone

  32. jackdaddy2008

    This is defo the way forward, if you can’t get me one after getting my money, you could just refund me afterwards. I will let you keep your fees, and will help you create a listing too if you need? If paid for with paypal and priority mail with track and trace is paid for, stated on the invoice and obviously used, there is no risk. ZERO! Nothing can go wrong, we would both be insured up to the eyeballs.

    This and discussing issues regarding Cars is what this site is for.

  33. Nancy

    I think those of you who get to go to SD Comic Con are so lucky. I loved it when we went to visit my brother-in-law years ago. The weather is extraordinary. And so much to do, unlike where I live.

    And those of you who have offered to buy Storm McQ for those of us on this site who can’t get there to buy our own should wear angel costumes next Halloween!!

    I would sure like to be on someone’s list and will pay for shipping etc. over and above actual cost. My email is iris@st-tel.net and I’m located in KS.

    My Wal-Mart is full — of old singles, pull backs, mm’s and other merchandise. They won’t stock any more until these are sold. I’ve seen Flea & Flik available online twice but by the time I get “purchase” clicked, they are sold out. Shoot me and put me out of my misery!!

    Met–I count on this site for all the news and information regarding Cars and check it several times a day. I also purchased your book and love it. Hope you are compiling info for Volume 2. Thanks.

    (MET: Well, Flea & Flik are coming in one more case so there’s still more coming (in theory). Thanks for reading!)

  34. Mike

    Hi, Looking for some assistance, would LOVE just one. Thanks in advance ( willing to pay in advance if necessary) contact @ crankyboy@shaw.ca

  35. Heather from Maine

    Hi everyone!

    This is my first post. I love this site for all the information I have been able to find on Cars. Thanks Met!!!

    My 4 year old son is crazy for Cars, Hot Wheels and anything else that has wheels. I always purchase three of each Cars- one for the boy to play with, one as a replacement just incase the boy breaks the one I gave him (which always seems to happen) and one to keep mint. (I hope I’m not the only parent who purchases several of the same Car!!)

    I would love to be able to purchase TWO of the LS Mcqueens. I would greatly appreciate it if my name was added to a list. I would also pay in advance for the Cars, shipping and a little extra for the effort.

    Please contact me at heather@bloominorchidco.com.

    Thanks so much!!!!

  36. Steve AKA: Poppa

    Oh, what a lazy sunny day in western Washington, hitting close to 80 degrees after a long wet spell. Just a little tidbit to get your heavy drool going. You may want to checkout Entertainmentearth.com, a source of the nicer unnecessary things in life. They are taking pre-orders for a “Pixar Cars Drive-In Drag Strip Playset” with a June 2008 distribution date- hey that just around the corner. Price: $25.99. I’ve dealt with this company on various items and found them respectable. You may even want to drool over some of the pre-orders for various case assortments of Cars. Now, just to get your drool going big time, in the past they have marketed exclusives from said comic convention. You may never know what they may get in without checking back once in awhile.

  37. collectormom

    Steve AKA: Poppa, that playset looks like the one that’s in stores now for the Mini Adventures line. $19.99 at WM.

    (MET: You are right ‘collectormom,’ that is the MINI’s one. EE is a fine company but they are a bit slow in getting some merchandise. That has been out since last December).

  38. Steve AKA: Poppa

    Whoops! Went back and checked. You’re right. You can tell I do not bother with mini’s. However, EE does market some exclusives from the Comic Convention. EE is still worth tracking.

  39. jestrjef

    Well, I have held out for a while, but here goes my first post!

    This site is amazingly helpful! Love everything you do to help the starving Cars fans!

    Terry & MSully – – –
    I am sure the line is getting as long as one for a theme park ride, but I would love to pick up two of the Lightning Storm MCQueens. I am willing to pay in advance to help you pay for the shopping cart and security needed to get them out of there! LOL

    email me at jestrjef@hotmail.com with info. I am always checking here, too.

    I just picked up Flea and Flik yesterday in FLA. Target was hiding them in the back!

  40. jestrjef

    BTW . . . there is a seller on ebay already pre-selling these for $44.95 . . . 😦

  41. Walker's Dad

    I’d be very greatful to anyone who would pick up 2 or 3 of these gems for me. Please E-mail me :

    Tolstoyan@yahoo.com

    More than willing to help out on fuel, shipping, etc. as far as costs.

  42. collectormom

    I just checked out the SDCC site; 4-day membership pricing is $75. You can purchase online ONLY, available now & includes a preview night on Wednesday. There are 1-day rates too that vary by day. NO on-site membership badges will be sold so I guess that means if you’re attending you need to buy it online. Active military pays the jr/sr rate; how nice!

    That being said we’re DEFINITELY going to have to compensate our super fabulous peeps who pick up a LS LMQ for us.

    http://www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_reg.shtml

    Apparently I’m not smart enough to figure out how to make that a hyperlink so I guess you can copy and paste it into your browser and check it out.

    And yes I too would like one of these! I said it a few days ago but I’m saying it again πŸ™‚

    Thank you thank you thank you!!

    (MET: There’s already a link above in the post but no problem … yea, as noted, last year was a sell-out so if you’re planning on going, might as well buy your ticket now).

  43. jackdaddy2008

    Met!

    Just read your comment –

    “near final version of the car”

    I hope they don’t lose the pencil missile on the roof? Thats the best bit. I wouldn’t mind if they played with the other missiles on the wings, and if I am right, the wings are a bit smaller than the film version, so I hope this is the only change they make.

    I would be happy to pay $15 just to get one in a baggy.

    I have decided to make this worth someones while.

    If you buy me one, I will buy yours, yes thats right, I will pay you $30 for the car, plus your ebay/paypal fees and insured priority shipping with track and trace. In total I estimate this will be roughly $60.

    You will get a nice car for free, a bit of feedback and knowledge you have helped a 4 year and his dad.

    I want 2 though.

    Contact me at jackdaddy2008 on ebay and hopefully we can set it up.

    (MET: I would imagine it comes in a Mattel cardboard box as you get everything you see: The CAR, the plastic, the black stand AND the cover … a nice deal at $15 … though shipping to the UK will pretty much negate that … this is also why I don’t want to make any promises to anyone – if they were selling a MINI car in a baggie, I would be glad to say – let me know if you want one but with a 5″ by 5″ by 5″ cube, how many can I actually carry? Parking is already bad so it’s not like you can many trips to the car … plus the convention center is huge and the show is huge!)

  44. BMW

    Hi Met,
    Please take a large shopping bag with you!
    I want one too.

  45. megaheat2008

  47. jestrjef

    ditto, jack daddy

  48. Edge

    chengy13@aol.com

  50. Chris

    oh yah! xtra cash for your time ticket and GAS.
    chengy13@aol.com

  51. megaheat2008

    ok lets start “someones engine” i have jestrjef in on my idea more or less now is the time people for us cars fans to get in on the promo at comic con ———**** we set up a bank account for two people going 1st idea or we email the dollars in m/o fashion to whom will be designated to buy and ship we all agree to pay the s/h charges so any one or two persons closest and going to comic con in july hit me up directly or leave message here to discuss set up of funds transfer and available to you i think this for us fans of this website and cars lovers parent or child(children)i personally think this is a great shot in on the hunt so it won’t elude us so………..

  52. megaheat2008

    good going jackdaddy i’m in also to hand the loot over to a designee going i live in pa for me calif. is the other side of the world lol… i seriously thought of going but other agendas are demanding : ( so it seems we have jackdaddy,and jestrjef,megaheat2008 willing to pay the designees who wants to be the designee also for the comic con you need tickets so….who wants this heavy enginical burden laid upon thee for a few mere solid auto souls that will be forever gratefull to you and your name etched in our hearts and mind ?

  53. jestrjef

    What do we think is a fair offer for the LSMQ, S & I, trouble and time for the person willing to go to SDCC and help us?

    I think $35 seems good for everything. LSMQ is $15 and shipping to most places in the US being less than $10. That leaves at least $10 per order to cover costs and time.

    Does that seem fair? Obviously not an EBAY mark up, but still good.

    Someone chime in. This way if Terry or MSULLY want to do this for us, they see what is in it for them!

  54. MCL Sydney

    in addition to my I want, I want or I need comment above..Im willing to pay in advance too..please send me a quick email for the kind person :oP to loefti@bigblue.net.au and I’ll chuck in some extras as a sign of appreciation + shipping to Sydney..thank u thank u

  55. jackdaddy2008

    Not to put anyone off, but lightning mcqueen will be coming out as a single on a card too. I know its not the same, and its likely that the paint and missiles will be slightly different, just letting you all know though.

    If someone does decide to be a designate/purchaser you could actually make decent money from doing it!

    If there at least half a dozen of us already willing to basically buy the designate/purchaser an LSM for buying ours, then if you think cleverly, there is at least 6 LSMs for you to sell on, keep, or give to friends. Plus, you will have the money to buy them upfront from the looks of things.

    There is nothing to lose, just refund us if there is a problem!

    If this thing was in Edinburgh, I would have had my listings on eBay done ages ago.

    Kerchingachow!

  56. megaheat2008

    i love the last word “Kerchingachow” i believe jackdaddy you coin it ..lol… nicely done : )

  57. msully

    Sorry I’ve been MIA guys, went out of town for the weekend and my husband wouldn’t let me use his laptop for long enough to post here, LOL.

    I’ll set up a super secret ebay listing for the folks here and give you a link tonight or tomorrow. That will be easiest all the way around. I have a verified PayPal account etc.

    It’s super nice for you guys to offer compensation for time/effort.

    I think I am going to have to take the boys’ wagon! Guess I won’t be taking the trolley.

  58. megaheat2008

    heads up guys and ladies i see out on singles “stacy the pitty member of leakless? should be arriving in areas soon—- for msully thankyou : )

  59. Terri

    I have a PayPal account too but would prefer to not be paid in advance. I want to know how many extras I have first. For me personally it is easier than refunding if I do not get enough. As soon as I return I will post how many I have and then people can pay through PayPal. I promise I will bring extra money to buy as many as I can. I buy on ebay but I do not sell, so I will not be listing mine. I hope everyone is ok with that.
    I am hoping the “no limit” thing sticks but have never seen that happen with a limited run item. This will be my 4th year in a row at Comic Con and they have always had limits until the last day.

  60. hello all i will be going to comic con i just bought my plane ticket and the tickets to get in, I as well am going just for the car. I will pick up as many as i can and i will post on here when i get back. Finally we are going to be able to get a limited car not like the red rans. talk to you all soon.

  61. Paul Brake

    I’m late, but can anyone add me to their list please!? I’m stuck in the UK so no chance of going to the Con. I’d love 2 (my son has a box of mint, carded ones and he also has opens one to play with), but one would do just as good. I’ll PayPal you the money, with a bit extra for your trouble. If you get some spare, let me know – watershipbrakey@sky.com.

    Thanks!

  62. Heather from Maine

    Thank you to all who are going to comic con and offering to try and get extra LS for the folks who can’t attend!!!

    Mscully- just a suggestion- maybe tile the auction 2aday with no pictures and a buy it now price that you think is fair. You probably already know this but there will be eBay fees and PayPal fees charged to you so make sure you price it so that it’s fair to you.

    Thanks again!!!!

  63. Heather from Maine

    Sorry msully-I misspelled your name.

  64. jestrjef

    Looks like we have three awesome souls to help us out!

    Terry
    Msully
    disneycarsfan406

    Thank you so much! How can we work out a system for how pick one up for who?

    Can we assign people like kids to a chaperone? LOL πŸ™‚ I am a teacher, can you tell?

  65. Thekid

    Terri (or any others),
    I’d be more than happy to front money to you. Shoot me an email when you read this – big thanks to everyone volunteering.
    pupsterpup@yahoo.com

  66. jackdaddy2008

    Later on, I will go over all these posts and type out all the two a day names with/without contact details and condense them all into one reply if that helps? I am busy for the next 5 hours, but should be ok for 7pm (uk time).

    I promise I will cut and paste and check spelling.

    This will save any designate from doing it.

    I don’t mind.

  67. BrianD

    Wanted to say Thanks to msully / Terri / Disneycarfan406 – for offering to pick-up extras.

    I think I opened up a can of worms when I asked if anyone would be willing to pick-up an extra one for those that could not attend in San Diego.

    I echo what others have written in the fact that I would be happy to send money in advance, so that no one is having outlay there own money.

    Thanks for all that have volunteered and I only want one!

    Thanks.

  68. Robert from the Netherlands

    Jackdaddy2008:
    GREAT idea to make a list. !!

    I already post that I want one, but did not leave my mail adress: gcvdpeet@quicknet.nl

    Thanks
    Robert

  69. Robert from the Netherlands

    Hello,
    Trunk Fresh is on ebay as a launcher. The First SOS Car is out on his own !!!! Peculiar timing of Mattel, or not?
    Just waiting for the other 24…..

    Robert

  70. Heather from Maine

    Like BrianD and others I will also be willing to pay in advance for ONE, not two as I requested in a previous post. I’ll just purchase the less expensive carded LS for my son to (break) play with. =)

    Thank you jackdaddy for offering to help organizing all the names.

    I hope everyone who wants one will be able to get one.

    I rarely post here, but I am a HUGE Cars fan, and would love to get one of these LSMcQ’s! I know it’s a longshot, but if anyone were willing to pick me up one, that would be great! I will keep checking back here, and see if details come out on anyone willing to do this. (BTW, I think $35 is very reasonable for one of these, and the super-seceret ebay auction is a great idea!)

  72. Steve AKA: Poppa

    I checked the pictures of Trunk Fresh on eBay of the launcher set and the single car offered from the SOS set. I could not see any difference in the graphics. So, choice now between the launcher at $9.99 on single car at $33.00+.

  73. DaddyO

    Much thanks to those who have volunteered to pick up LSMs at the SD ComiCon. As I cannot go myself, I would greatly appreciate, if it isn’t too much of an inconvenience, having one purchased on behalf as well. Of course, I am willing to pay (cost, shipping, +) in advance so noone would have to lay out the cash for me. My e-mail is:

    DaddyO9199@gmail.com

    To Nancy, who posted on this thread on May 24 – I just found a flea and flik at a local TRU. I only saw one but will check to see if I can find another to send to you.

    Thanks again…

  74. cptnmorgan_1972

    I would glady take one.

    chad.morgan@rtc1.com

    Thanks to all that are trying to make this happen for all of us honest collectors!

  75. jpkherd

    Count me in on that list for one Lightning Storm.

    jpkelly@mac.com

    I would love to go to that show. My 6 year old is into all the stuff there. For me, just Cars cars!

  76. jackdaddy2008

    Heres the list!

    I imagine this will change slightly?
    A few buyers haven’t provided contact details, and I am sure there will be more to come!
    Also, only one seller (disneycarsfan406) has provided contact details so far.
    Maybe Met could do a separate post using the following below in a week or so, once everyone has chipped in?

    (EDIT: TO REMOVE EMAILS)

    26 buyers plus whatever they are prepared to give as an extra (at least 50% again) equals a worthwhile exercise for someone attending!
    Has anyone contacted Mattel direct?

  77. Terri

    Thanks Jackdaddy for the list. It helps to have an idea of how many we need. I will definitely be selling, I just do not want the money ahead of time. So far this looks like a very achievable goal if all sellers come back with extras.

  78. jackdaddy2008

    Absolutely Terri.

    The list will change, and I expect it will grow by at least 50% again before the conference.

    If the 3 of you were to split the burden, you would probably end up having to buy 15 – 20 extra each.

    If there is a limit on purchasing at the conference, then thats obviously out the window.

    It might be an idea to simply contact the conference organiser or Mattel and explain the problem?
    In the past, event exclusives like toys have been made available for sale outside the event, but obviously for an extra charge, usually an annual membership worth naff all (sound familar SOS buyers?).
    That said, there would be no security like there is with eBay, so you probably can’t prove you paid for a LSM this way, which is why I will prefer to buy one on eBay in advance, with a refund guarantee, should something go wrong.

    If I have been tipped off correctly again, Lightning Storm Mcqueen will be on American shelves just before the conference at one of the big retailers.

    Will it be a variant? Will the conference version be an extra $12 for a decent plastic case? Will you be able to buy the conference version on Hot Wheels.com after the conference?

    Safest bet is to buy it from the conference, but I think its only fair that I share what I can before someone goes and pays $100 in advance for one.

  79. collectormom

    jackdaddy my email is sarah.sprunger@us.army.mil.

    I know this is a work in progress; you may want to put next to each name how many they want. I only need one please.

    Good job by the way. πŸ™‚ I bet the people who will be attending can find a place to meet at the con to go over the list and such. And like Met said work out the secret handshake & eye signals!

  80. Jon VP

    I would also be interested in just one to add to my son’s and my collection. My email address is jonvp1@comcast.net.

    Thanks in advance to everyone that is willing to help – I don’t think I could convince the wife that the trip from Michigan would be worth it.

  81. carsmama

    Hey jackdaddy – my email is erinnandjeff@yahoo.com
    Thanks so much for putting in the effort to compile the list.

  82. Matt

    Jackdaddy, thank you for the effort, and the many ideas. This site has really come together over the past several months and has become a place where we CARS enthusiasts can not only see what is coming, but shore up the supply and demand issues that are becoming more and more apparent with each shipped case.

    You can be sure of one thing. If Comic Con was in Omaha, I would have a U-haul pre-rented, and a line of helpers to make sure everyone here who wanted one got one.

    I agree with Jackdaddy that some sort of ebay channel might be the best way to accomplish this, but I am open to suggestions. I would think that it may be easier for those who can and will buy, if they did not have to front all of the money up front which will not only be the purchase price, but S&H as well. Whatever I can do to help, I will try. Let me know. My email is on the list, and I try to check the site at least once a day if not every other day.

  83. BrianD

    Jackdaddy2008 – thanks for the effort of compiling the list, I know that took time. And for those that offered to pick-up extras at the show – Thanks again!

  84. msully

    JD, thanks for the list!

    $35 for buyers stateside (plus an extra $5 for shipping outside the US) sounds reasonable to me and I have created an ebay listing for a presale for 10 (I can easily relist more if needed). Let me know if you have any questions. I divided the costs into sale price and shipping fees to keep ebay fees lower.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=200227390129&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT&ih=010

    I am willing to purchase as many as are needed, but as we all know, there are no guarantees on availability. I will attend with three other people and have several friends going, so even if they impose a limit of some sort, I should be able to get quite a few.

    Also, I’d be happy to do an even trade with someone with a spare blu ray LM lying around.

    My home email address is msullivan33@cox.net and my ebay ID is msully1.

  85. Noel

    msully,

    Great idea, I just sent you a payment. The best part is nobody will probably find it by accident or know what it is. I appreciate the effort.

  86. Lorri

    Hi put me on the list too! my email is lranslam@verizon.net
    Thanks

  87. Richard

    Comic con’s Lightning Storm McQueen hits ebay!!

    Can’t figure out how to do a link but the Ebay auction no is 130226102294.

    The buy it now price is $99.99, plus shipping, so thank you all from saving us from these prices, and thank you MET for providing this forum.

  88. jackdaddy2008

    That is disgusting!

    It simply isn’t worth that and will struggle to even become half as valuable in the future.

    I only want one for the collection now I had wanted one for my Son to mess about with, but one will do, because LSM is coming out on a card this year anyway, it will prob be slightly differant, but it is coming.

    $100!

  89. jackdaddy2008

    Im in!

    I JUST GOT ME A LIGHTNING STORM MCQUEEN IN A CASE!

    Now why couldn’t SOS been like that?

  90. jestrjef

    Msully is the greatest . . . my son and I are so excited about the chance to pick LSM up!

    We knew it would be impossible to get from FLA with out an arm and a leg.

    It is so refreshing to see people helping one another with out squeezing you for every penny you earn! Thank you for all your help.

    Met, thanks for your constant help in chasing down these ghosts!

  91. Edge

    I’m in too! Msully, I just sent you a payment, thank you for setting this up!

  92. jackdaddy2008

    I will update the list again tonight and will write – bought from msully where relevant.

    I agree, it is great that we are clubbing together like this.

    If anyone in the UK needs anything, message me through ebay – jackdaddy2008

  93. jestrjef

    Sorry, I was so excited to give praise I forgot to say I paid msully as well! Yippie!

  94. Snappyjoker

    I’m in too! I have sent msully payment!

    Thanx for your Help (U.K.)

  95. BrianD

    msully – I just bought your last LS LM on eBay. Thanks for the listing. Payment to follow shortly.

  96. Thekid

    I’m sorry I just missed the ebay listing, but thanks is deserved by this site and the community. I know you’ve been thanked already by buyers but I’d like to take this opportunity as well for your bravery msully. I’m sure some others may step forward too.

  97. carsmama

    Got mine a little while ago! πŸ™‚ msully – Thanks so much for doing the dirty work for this landlocked midwesterner. It’s greatly appreciated. Can’t wait for the end of July now.

  98. BMW

    MSully, just saw this, and the listing has ended.
    Can I get in as well?
    Can paypal.

  99. jestrjef

    Hopefully Terri or disneycarsfan406 will work something out similar to what MSULLY has done for us.

    I do not know if it would be good for MSULLY to sell anymore because we have not heard of a limit yet on buying these.

    They may only let him buy 5 of them!

    I am sure there is some limit to buying or the first ebayer would walk in and buy all of them.

    Next thing you know, he throws them on for $100 a piece . . . gag 😦

    I am sure everyone from this post that wants one should be able to get one!

    Thanks again to Msully and Met!

    (MET: There’s no limit to buying. Mattel figures they only have some 99 hours to sell 5,000 – so they would rather sell out ASAP. The only hinderance is it looks kind of large so not so easy to carry around a show).

  100. georgehp

    To slow…I missed Msully ebay listing.

    Dido on what jestrjef said above.

    I will be extremely grateful if I can get one.

  101. Robert from the Netherlands

    Oh no, i missed it too,
    that is the trouble with overseas timezones…

    please help me.
    gcvdpeet@quicknet.nl

  102. jackdaddy2008

    Ikea bag?

    U guys have Ikea yeah?

    (MET: Ikea bags are flimsy and cheap symbolism – they charge $.05 to “buy” a bag – not sure who or when they actually donate the nickel … after all, it’s worth the interest they make from that to annoy customers! There is a UPS store inside the convention center so if you have a UPS account, you can mail packages straight from there. The have a handling fee so it’s better if you have your own UPS labels/account number)

  103. georgehp

    yes, we do have Ikea in California.

  104. collectormom

    Yikes I missed it too. Still want one please!

  105. msully

    I just relisted for another 10. I shouldn’t have much of a problem getting that many. Cross your fingers for me.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200227586283

    Ikea bag is a brilliant idea, but I want to keep the boxes as nice as possible too, so I am scheming to bring a rolling luggage cart and tie downs.

    The offer is still open for a blu ray trade πŸ™‚

  106. jackdaddy2008

    Haha!

    I am imagining you wandering around the conference like some bag lady with a shopping trolley (cart) full of cans!

    Brilliant.

    If you find that the postage paid is a bit short, I will happily send the extra needed obviously.

  107. georgehp

    msully, your the best. I will keep my fingers crossed πŸ™‚

    Thank you so much. I just selected one and paid for it!

    Sweet my boy will be happy!

    Gracias,
    georgehp from San Jose, CA

  108. jaredjaded

    Thank you so much for offering to help, msully. I have just used the Buy It Now option. Payment coming up! Thanks!

  109. Robert from the Netherlands

    Msully. I bought two of them and finished the payment. Now, we wait for the Comic Con.
    Kind regards
    Robert

  110. collectormom

    Yes! Thank you msully; got mine too. πŸ™‚

    Jack & Ethan will be super excited; until I tell them they can only look at it! HA!!

    I wish I could go to the con. It would be great to meet up with some fellow Cars fans and wander the convention hall like a pack of LS hoarders!! πŸ˜‰

  111. DaddyO

    Msully, thank you so much for re-posting on ebay. I just “bought” one (username on ebay is esonnebe). Thanks again, your efforts are truly appreciated.
    Best wishes.

  112. Heather from Maine

    Purchased and paid for one LS!

    Thanks again msully for your kindness!!!!!

  113. Jon VP

    Thanks msully, just put my order in for one!

  114. jackdaddy2008

    Heres the updated list!

    Maybe Met could do a separate post using the following below in a week or so, once everyone has chipped in?

    Known Sellers as of 01.00am uk time May 29th 2008

    (EDIT: Moved EMAIL ADDRESSES)

    I have worked it out that at least 16 buyers remain unsold to. This is a lucrative little corner for some! Worth it though, this isn’t a shop shelf deal!

  115. msully

    JD, yes, I will be the LS LM bag lady. Richard and The Kid have already ordered as well.

    Met, thanks NOW you tell me about the UPS in the convention center πŸ˜‰

    Everyone, I am glad to do it. Thank you all for your superfast payments too! I’ll leave positive feedback.

    Now, we wait…

  116. megaheat2008

    msully do i see it right you need a blu-ray? well it just so happens….”KACHOW”

  117. Lorri

    Thanks msully, just finished with paypal
    You rock
    Hope you dont strain anything!!!!!!
    Are there any cars you are missing????

  118. MCL Sydney

    I have never received an email or paypal invoice from any of you guys..I really want one and wanna be part of the “Im In Crowd”. Can somebody please please include me…thank you!!

  119. Edge

    MCL Sydney, not only is it being listed at $99 minimum bid, the shipping to Canada (where I live) is $33,35… if I were to land it at the minimum bid, it would end up costing me $132,35, whereas Msully sold it to me at $40…

    And people wonder why I hardly ever go on E-bay…

  120. MCL Sydney

    $40 Lucky you Edge! Msully or anyone Ive been away for 4 days…could you pleeeeease kindly re-list and email loefti@bigblue.net.au once available.. ..I will ensure fast turnaround of payment …thanks guys:::MCL Sydney

  121. BMW

    M Sully, got your email reply, I missed out again.
    Was at work when you relisted.
    my ebay is aintnoqueen

  122. jaredjaded

    Hey msully! I just sent the paypal payment! My ebay is jaredjaded as well, by the way. Thanks so much again!

  123. Nancy

    I can’t believe I missed this. Out of town without internet service. Would somebody email me if anybody else does this same offer? Please!!

  124. Matt

    Msully….. I also have been away from the cpu since posting on the site over the weekend about the set value.
    Please let me know if you reopen a bid. I have sent you an email. I will also be checking the site. Once up, I will do instant paypal. For reference, my email is mthurber13@hotmail.com.

    MET… nice blog about set value. Still have not decided whether to open the box and find the yellow Ramones or not. Am leaning towards setting the bad boy up though. I like you have one carded set which I started during the supercharged series. We also have our crash and tumble set that is missing quite a bit of paint… Initially kept the SOS set closed out of my own personal protest of Mattel about the individually numbered sets, which I still don’t want to get into. We’ll see how that whole thing plays out… Like many others here, $350 is a lot of money in these times, and it is an even more difficult pill to swallow when you don’t get what was advertised..

    If anyone else can help me out with the LS MQ, let me know….. Of course all these things go down when I can’t get to the site.

  125. annie

    So I will need help to sign up and get paid for I dont know how to do all that fancy stuff. So someone please please let me know. It now turns out I might be going but still would like to get one just in case that falls through and if I do go I would be glad to get payments and mail them to people and such. So if you want to let me know how I can help out and get on the in crowd list. THanks

    Annie

  126. Indykjt

    Hello! I posted earlier, but didn’t make it on the list. My email is indykjt@hotmail.com so if anyone can help me out with one, that would be great. I see that I missed two listings already, maybe there will another?

    To all of those helping out on this, that I awesome! I am a regular contributor to carsthetoys.yuku.com, but I come over here alot and read up on more info all the time! Maybe I should stop lurking and become active here too…

    Thanks!

    Kevin

  127. msully

    I am waiting to hear from Terry and Disneycarsfan here before doing any more ebay listings. I would prefer not to have to wrangle any more, but if no one else is going to be able to pick the rest up for our fellow collectors here, then I will. Don’t worry, we still have plenty of time to get it all buttoned down before the con.

  128. jackdaddy2008

    Heres the latest LS McQ updated list!

    MET: I moved everything to here and half hid in 2007 and password protected it – does everyone want the password to look at it or just Jackdaddy?

    You guys can decide what you want – thanks.

    https://2aday.wordpress.com/2007/05/01/ls-mcq-buyers-5302008/

  129. collectormom

    I don’t think I would need the password. Maybe jackdaddy and the people going to the con should have it so they can make sure everyone is covered.

    Met I like that you’re doing this (hiding the info) but our emails addresses are still in our individual comments; does that matter?

    (MET: Well, I think that’s hard to collect … that’s too much work for spammers … but in one giant file might’ve been a little too easy πŸ™‚ )

  130. Matt

    Msully – just let me know when you post. I will be checking daily over the weekend, and will also check my email account. I sent you an email, or two πŸ™‚ yesterday.

    Thanks again for your help..

  131. Terri

    MSully, I absolutely plan on having extras for people here. I am not a ebay seller. I cannot post mine ahead of time. I am going to wait until I get back from the con. People can still pay me through paypal but, I will not be listing mine on ebay as a presale. My goal is to come back with 20 extras if that helps you at all. If I am able to buy them all on preview night I will post it so people will know right away.

  132. Matt

    Terri,

    If MSully does not relist… Can you please earmark one of your extras for me.. I gave the “i’m in” from the very beginning, and being from Nebraksa, have no other means of getting one other from our system set up here.

    Thanks again to all of you who will get these for all of us. My email is in my post above from 5/29. Contact me so we can set something up if you want.

  133. disneycarsfan406

    I have been offline for a couple days, My email is carlover1902@msn.com if you guys have any questions. i am expecting to pick up as many as i can i have $1000 reserved to pick these up and i am there all four days. Jackdaddy can you send me the list so i can get a rough idea of how many to get and how my everyone has agreed on paying of them. i havent got a a chance to read all the postings yet. Talk to you all after the comic con

  134. disneycarsfan406

    You guys tell me how you want to purchese these cars i have been reading some of the postings. Msully please get me caught up to speed on what you are doing please. thanks

  135. gwstudios

    I’d like the password if it’s not too much trouble

  136. Materlover

    Hi, I have been so upset about the SOS set numbering that I haven’t been doing much other than reading your comments. I wasn’t sure if Mattel could be trusted to sell what they are saying, but I would like to throw my hat in the ring so to speak and order a LS McQ from one who is going. MSully, I missed your posts and I don’t have an epay account, but if that is what it takes then that is what I’ll do. Thank you guys in advance.

  137. Terri

    Materlover, you can get yours from me if you want. I am not doing a presale because I do not sell on Ebay. If you do not mind waiting until after the con I will make sure you get one. Matt no problem. I should be able to help you out. You both can pay through paypal after the con.

    Jackdaddy, if you could email me the list too I will check off who I am getting for and then we will know what is left for disneycarsfan too. It would be good if we could have everyone assigned to someone ahead of time regardless of how they are listed and paid for. That way we will be sure not to forget anyone.

  138. megaheat2008

    EVERYONE SING ALONG-IF YOUR NOT HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT GET “KACHOWED” IF YOU SHOP AT WAL-MART GET “KACHOWED”IF WE DRIVE TO TOYS R US GET “KACHOWED” IF WE SEE A SALE AT TARGET GET “KACHOWED” IF YOUR NOT HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT GO TO EBAY(SHOPPING IS FUN HERE)GET “KACHOWED”NOW SINCE WERE GETTING “HAPPY AND KACHOWED” AND WE KNOW IT GET THE KIDS TO JOIN IN ITS FUN ALL WE WANT FOR “CHRISTMAS IN JULY” IS LIGHTNING STORM LIGHTNING MCQUEENS ARE YA FEELING IT YET-KACHOW : )

  139. Nancy

    Terri, would you add me to your list? I don’t have a problem waiting until after the show. I really appreciate all those who are offering to get these for site members. Thank you!

  140. Materlover

    Terri, that is super and I will get a paypal account setup so we will be all set to go. Thanks again and I’ll dance and sing until the con is over and maybe a little while longer too.

  141. Matt

    Terri, thank you very much…:) Please feel free to contact me via email, or through here, and we can set something up for the LS MQ. I appreciate it. Is everyone here in agreement with the $35 price that was charged by MSully. I just want to make sure everyone is on the same page prior to comic con.

  142. MCL Sydney

    Terri or Msully..Im still keen and eagerly waiting for a re-list…please email me loefti@bigblue.net.au just in case I miss checking the blog and Im away from Sydney this week…thank you so much guys…

  143. Terri

    I am fine with the set price of $35.00 that Msully set. I have printed of this list and everyone above is on it with the exception of Materlover. That leave 15 people. I should be able to handle that. If more are added maybe disneycarsfan can take those.

    Disneycarsfan, if you prefer to do this differently just let me know. I am happy to do whatever you like. Some people may prefer to go through ebay with you. I just want to make sure everyone gets one.

    Jackdaddy can you add Materlover to the list please? I will keep checking the list as time goes by. Thanks to all for the great team work.

  144. Nancy

    Terri, you’re the best! Thanks again. I’ll start saving my dollars!

  145. Matt

    Thank you Terri, and also thank you to MSully and Disneycarsfan for getting these for the people here.

    Can’t wait πŸ™‚

  146. Lorri

    check out ebay item 330240887998……….

    (MET: Unless the guy has access, most everyone else won’t get them until July 23 … and also if I count correctly, he’s outside the 30-day eBay presell window … though he does have inside sources, wonder who it could be? πŸ™‚ Guess he’s not mentioning it’s $15 at the show πŸ™‚ ).

  147. jackdaddy2008

    I will organise for those who asked stuff later tonight.

  148. MCL Sydney

    Thx terri, jackdaddy, Msully, Met and everyone else..please keep me updated…”Woohoo it aint get better than this!!!!!”

    Hello Everyone! I’ve been going on this site to read up on CARS stuff, but this is the first time I’m making a comment…

    I’m just wondering…msully can you please relist the ebay auction or anyone that is going to the SD Comic Con…will you be able to get me one…I’ll pay extra $$

    my email is nhuynh85@hotmail.com

    thanks so much!!

    GROUP TWO – β€œTHE UNDECLARED CROWD” (NOT SAID/STILL TO BUY)

    Ok, so I am displaying all the potential buyers who don’t have one but have kept buyers who do have one anonymous.

    If you don’t want this, just say and your details will be deleted.

    Met has quite rightly pointed out that spammers are about and your email could be used easier in this way of posting info.

    In my opinion, due to the protection I have on my computer, this is not a worry, although for other reasons I only post my ebay address to allow maximum anonymity, especially due to my posts about Mattel. However, if you have ‘weak’ security this is your call. There is no getting away from the inconvenience caused by spam, its always irritating.

    If you want to be on the list, just post that you do with relevant contact details and I will amend it every once in a while.

    (MET: the password protected post has been updated with your name & email – below, I deleted your emails here – Jackdaddy can update here. Thanks).

    FROM MATTEL regarding SDCC exclusives:
    “Prices are subject to change as details have not been finalized. There will not be limits on any of the figures. (Although if someone wants to buy a large amount, like 10 cases, we might have to hold back on that… so limits are within ‘reason’).”

    Well, they better not double or triple jack the price of this… And i guess 9 cases and 17 pieces is fine? Assuming there’re 18 in a case. πŸ˜‰

    (MET: Mattel wants to sell out so they don’t have to haul anything back and for 99.99999999% of the people, they say unlimited (BUT with possible exception) is because there’s always one crazy person in this world … $75,000 will buy you the entire shipment at the show – and then they can launch a website called SDLS.com and sell them for $49.99 each, right? … It’s unlikely but it could happen so … so if you wanted to buy 100 cases on Thursday, they’d probably say no but if it’s 4:00 PM on Sunday and they had 120 left and you wanted 100 – they’ll be happy to sell it to you).

    Let’s not take the risk of waiting till the last hour before buying though eh? Heh…

  157. Paul Brake

    Yes please! Two if at all possible – watershipbrakey@sky.com or watershipbrakey on eBay.

  158. dread

    apologies for the lateness of my entry as well.
    msully1 (or any of the other fine people going to san diego) – i would gladly complete an ebay purchase for a single LS LM. Being another Montrealer – these probably will never get here.

    or dvread on ebay

  159. nhuynh85

    I forgot….my ebay name is lemonedr1ce1920

  160. franchiz

    I’d like to have the opportunity to get a LS LM. If anyone could arrange this, my ebay name is ‘franchiz’.

  162. MCL Sydney

    im still waiting for someone to send me an ebay / paypal for this pleeease :o( if you need my ebay id its zero6music thanks

  163. jackdaddy2008

    Just noticed that LSM sold for $100 on ebay a couple of days ago. The same seller has relisted it for $150.

    Sick.

    (MET: Of course, the buyer has 6 weeks to realize that maybe $100 or $150 is not exactly the best price – not to mention weeks outside of eBay’s 30-day window).

  164. Materlover

    Terri, Do you have what you need from me at this point?
    Thanks to Jackdaddy and Met for listing and keeping as secure as possible.

  165. jackdaddy2008

    Very true Met, hopefully it is someone with a bit of sense who has bought this auction as an alternative to in case they fail to get one for a reasonable price.

    People treat these cars like jewels sometimes.

  166. Cakes

    If possible I would like to get on a list to purchase a LSM, my email is mcconnell@centurytel.net if someone would be so kind and let me know how this works I would really appreciate it.

  167. Wow, I am really late to this game. Please add me to the list if it’s not too late. I will pay $. Let me know if you need anymore contact details. Thanks.

  168. Terri

    Yes, Materlover I do. There is no need to send me money now. I will collect from people through Paypal once I have the cars.

    my son loves that scene in the movie

    (are they going to release it as a single in the stores?)

  180. jackdaddy2008

    Yes, it is scheduled to be released (rumored to be a store exclusive?) but will probably not be the same (variant) and obviously will not include the case it comes in at comic con.

    This was a post for Two a day user – VIC?

    He just emailed me to say he wanted one.

    I accidently posted his ebay ID, which is why it was deleted, I didn’t swear or insult anyone.

    So yeah,

    Two a day user ‘VIC’ needs one.

    Met,
    My mail address is duncanjheppell@yahoo.co.uk. Happy to pay up front if requested?

  201. DCF

    Happy to pay up front if needed.

  202. Terri

    Ok guys. I hate to be the first to bring this up but the list is getting pretty large. Should we consider capping it soon. With only 3 buyers we are going to get to a point where we might not be able to get one for everyone. We are getting pretty close to 60 people. That is 20 each for the 3 buyers. I am happy this has turned out to be a way to get so many others a LSM. It appears the word really got out about it. Also, I think we have to say only 1 per person. It is more important to me that everyone gets one then to get multiples for some. That just does not seem fair in this case. Unless of course, after everyone gets one we have extras. Please let me know your thoughts. I will follow whatever everyone agrees to.

    (MET: While I know some of you have more than 1 kid to buy for, LS McQ is coming as a regular release, just no idea what it will look like so maybe you just want this one as a display? And after the hard work of Terri, Monica & a third (?) of course, it will less of an incentive to turn around and sell your extras because apparently only millionaires and billionaires are collecting CARS. πŸ™‚ … so I think one per person until it cycles through sounds fair … I will try and bring back extras to raffle off so think good thoughts πŸ™‚ )

  203. Thekid

    Agreed Terri.

  204. Heather from Maine

    I agree with Met and Terri

    Since there are so many people interested, I think one per person is more than fair.

    The kind people that are going to try and get this exclusive car for us are doing us a HUGH favor. There are eBay pre-sales of this car for around $100.00!!!!

    Even though I have more than one kid, I only purchased one LS for display and will get the carded one for play.

    BTW, I think over on another CARS site, people are trying to arrange purchasers/buyers/names of the LS as well.

  205. jackdaddy2008

    It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t go against the grain! ; )

    I don’t think it needs to be or should be capped?

    Who is that in the best interests of?

    ‘Sellingfornolan’ might become another seller? They didn’t post until 2 – 3 weeks after the list started.

    At the end of the day, the conference is 6 weeks away and is sure to create more sellers who can use this list or refer to it after they have attended.

    60 people is nothing for an international sales list.

    I do agree that it should be one per person, but you can’t stop people buying more than 1.

    I know I have been waiting for a system like this to emerge for ages, it seems unnecessary to ‘cap’ it.

  206. Monica

    I have pretty much capped my self at 20. It’s just the number I feel confident of being able to buy, transport, package and ship in the space of a few days.

    Also, it appears to me that all the regular 2aday readers that want one have gotten on the list, so I am happy that all my fellow collectors here are getting one.

    Monica/msully (lost my logged in status somehow)

  207. gwstudios

    We all appreciate the effort Monica, I’ll send you something extra when all is said and done for your time and trouble.

    Noel

  208. jackdaddy2008

    Amen

  209. Krisarmbar

    Could you add my name to the list for the LS McQueen, PLEASE? Make that “Pretty Please”. I would be willing to pay for your efforts at the show in July. I live in rural Nebraska and won’t be making the trip, but would LOVE to have one of these. Thanks!!

  210. Krisarmbar

    PS- I, too, would pay up front if need be. My email is krisarmbar@hotmail.com. I have an 8 year old son and made the mistake of telling him LSM was coming out in July. Now he thinks we need to fly to Calif. Unfortunately that isn’t going to be happening. We would appreciate anyone who could help us out with this one.

    That’s great megaheat2008. How much are they selling for?

    I went to TRU today too. Also visited WM, Target, KB toys and Kmart. All in Bangor.

    Found (1) of each Red Mia & Tia and Rusty & Dusty at Target.

    Found (1) Chuki at KB. Ask the salesperson if they had Chuki and he pulled one out from behind the counter. Said he was holding it for himself but said I could have it. Nice!!!

    Nothing new at TRU, WM (no cube at that location) or Kmart (found short and desert art Cars there).

    It was a pretty lucky day!

  214. megaheat2008

    AND JACKDADDY2008, JUST SAYING NICE JOB ON THE EFFORT YOU PUT INTO THIS CLUB BUT I HAVE TO SAY IT HERE WITHOUT “METROXING” <—– WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE , METRO YOU ROCK !!!

  216. collectormom

    Monica, you may need to log in with WordPress again. The same thing happened to me even though I said to remember my log in information.

    I have to agree with Terri in capping the list. selling4nolan just said she was going (for one day I think) to the con not looking to buy a bunch. I’m not meaning to speak for her if that’s not the case. It’s a lot to ask for only 3 people to buy this many, make trips back and forth to the car dropping off another arm full and heading back in to the convention for more. Then they have to bring them home, find boxes for all of them and mail them off.

    Those of us on the list are eternally grateful to the 3 that have volunteered to get these for us but it might be getting a little out of hand. If we could get 2 or 3 more people going to the con to pick up more of these that would be a huge help.

  217. Clipsawd97

    Jackdaddy who do i need to pay so i can get into group one? i have the money and willing to pay just need to know who to send it to. If i send the money now is it a promise ill have one or my money back? hopefully the first choice. let me know. im more then happy to work with you here. i check this site every day.
    Thanks,
    Core

  218. Chris

    I would also jump on the list and pay through paypal now, so people don’t have to front the money.

    Please contact me, if any of you folks attending think that it is possible

    I’m cjd262e in ebay. Thanks.

  219. Terri

    The reason I think we should cap this list is because I want people to know their chances. 20 each for all three buyers is pretty manageable. I feel pretty confident that I will able to fullfill that. After that I am not sure. I want no misunderstandings or hurt feelings. People need to know that after 60 names there chances decline unless we get more people at the con to buy. If I/we happen to come back with more by all means we can sell more. JackDaddy, I understand your reasoning about not capping this list but, as one of the 3 I fear what that list is going to look like when we get closer to the con. If it is already at 60 names and we have over a month to go. I just do not see us having the ability to fullfill a list that large.

    I do not want people to prepay. That does not matter to me and it is really better for the people I am selling to. We are still exceeding the 30 days that paypal allows to assist with any problems. I want people to feel protected with their purchase. I am going by the list. First names on the list after Msully’s names . I have a printed copy with about 15 names and I will add another five in order.

  220. BMW

    Terri, thanks for your post. I am on the second list as BMW, and when you get the car at the Comic Con, just let me know here and I will paypal you then.
    Very appreciative of your efforts to help out.

  221. indykjt

    To all the organizers of this list, and the buyers, thank you in advance. Even if I don’t end up with one, this is probably my only real shot at one reasonably priced.

    Please let me know if there is any way I can help… from Indianapolis πŸ™‚

  222. megaheat2008

    Heather greetings, : ) Ok I did the “swipee” thing kinda works out better Lol… more money to spend freely at other retailers… I paid a whopping $34.99 + taxes but worth every nickel stretched the one thing that I enjoy most about the collecting cars is my kids love it and I really dont have to dive deep in my pockets i’m not rich-“plumber by trade” and the scrap – copper, brass, lead, etc. pays about 70% to 85% of cars items that we buy and it works sometimes I amaze myself that my trade turns scrap metals into a wonderful collection for both my children to enjoy !!! I have been a Disney fan, Pixar fan a fan of “ANIMATION” since I was a child but this movie respectfully has touched not only me or my family but everyone who relates about that life is a journey and this journey began, and I have made and met great people not just in the USA but all Around the World!!!! And Heather as we all say – “HAPPY HUNTING”!!!! The most important thing is “It’s not about our selfish wants,I personally feel the teaching tool for our children is to satisfy their needs to be taught,and teach them early on how to relate because there journeys are only to begin : )

  223. msully

    Wow Heather, you had awesome luck yesterday, congrats!

    I got nutin’ here in San Diego. Not at TRU nor my favorite big TGT nor any of my awful WM’s. Hmpf.

    TRU had lots of stock of the last case with Lightning Ramone and Dinoco copter (no Chuki’s though).

    No Banshee’s Megaheat :(, but thanks again for the heads’ up. I’ll keep looking…of course.

    Good hunting everyone!

  224. jackdaddy2008

    I just think it makes more sense to have a list than not, especially for future activity, like – LSM.

    Imagine we had this list with the SOS?

    All the information given can be traced backwards through the post, so if Terri wants to commit the 20 who asked first (not including msullys 20) and if Disneyscarsfan wants to do the next 20? msully would have to share who she sold to.

    I am pretty sure sellers will come out after the con, a list will be just as relevant then.

    The majority of the 60 names have been listed within the first little while of the list being created, you are lucky if ‘two a day’ (haha) add their names.

    I just don’t see why a list is an issue?

    I understand that you are worried that you can’t commit, but I have explained how that could be done, i.e. – first on list get first sale. I am willing to work this out in request order, minus msullys sales for you if you need, but I would need msullys list of buyers, but I think I already have them?

    I am sure the guys who don’t have one will be gutted if they miss out because a list has been removed.

    I just don’t see the necessity?

    For potential buyers, you can try Mattel or the conference organisers, I cannot give any guarantee.

    There have been 2 sightings of the Banshee; I’m on the hunt……..

  226. Krisarmbar

    Just wondering– how do we know if we made “the list” or not? Is there an updated list with the “top 60” names on it?

  227. Monica

    You know Megaheat, you got me thinking. Wouldn’t it be nice if Mattel made a Cars club like the RL club and we could get cute little membership cards and exclusives and presales and have online forums without the HW fanbois getting their chonies in a bunch?

    I would totally dig that. They would make a bundle too.

  228. collectormom

    Monica awesome idea. Where do I sign up? I’ll get 2 memberships! πŸ˜‰

  229. jackdaddy2008

    Krisarmband (great name)

    You make a good point.

    For me, this was an exercise aimed at creating a community within this forum to get one ahead the scalpers. There is a lack of humanity in regard to these cars in my opinion, very few people actually seemed to be helping one another.

    This list is the result of the mindsets of a few users and represents much more than just a toy car purchase.

    Having read posts in the last few days, I think the list needs to read so that the first posters who all combined to arrive at a list being created in the first place get priority. Most of these posters have bought from msully, but disappointingly one or two have missed the boat.

    The posters who added their names to be put on the list should then be listed in order of when they posted, after the initial ‘list makers’ (so to speak), so therefore the 59th and 60th poster will obviously be way down the pecking order.

    If you all more or less agree for me to go ahead and do this, I will, but it won’t be for 48 hours or so, as I am mega busy this week.

    I would indicate who has already bought one from msully that publicly declared themselves as having bought one in brackets beside their name () i.e. –

    POSTER 2 – MICKEY MOUSE
    POSTER 3 – DONALD DUCK (BOUGHT FROM MSULLY)
    POSTER 4 – ELMER FUDD

    However, this doesn’t mean that if you are the 59th or 60th poster you will be any less likely to get a LSM, as at the end of the day, if a seller lists them on ebay like msully did, you could buy it before the 1st poster.

    I cannot lie about it, you can all read through all the posts and check the findings against the list.

    For security I cannot list your email addresses on one page, but all your details are still up on the individual posts.

    Confused?

    Good, its Disney Cars, your supposed to be.

  230. Heather from Maine

    Thanks megaheat and msully!!

    I’m so glad I found this site. Finally, people who understand me!! (big sigh) My husband just shakes his head at me when I come home with more toys. I always tell him there are worst things I could be buying!!! LOL

    I felt especially lucky finding those Cars yesterday mostly because Bangor is a 45 min. drive for me. There is a WM about 20 mins away, but TRU, KM, KB, Target and a bigger WM are in Bangor. I take the drive about once a week, sometimes I take my kids, sometimes I go by myself for a little “alone time”. I go not to shop for clothes or shoes (boring!!!), I go to shop for toys!! Even though it’s a bit of a drive, I never call the toy stores ahead to see if they have the Cars I’m looking for. I just go and see what I can find. Even if I don’t find new cars, I figure it wasn’t meant to be today, and then I head to Starbucks!!! : )

    Well, happy Cars hunting everyone!!! Keep an eye out for that Screamin’ Banshee!!!!

    (MET: Summer is a piece of cake, you could probably walk there, right? πŸ™‚ Now, winter time, that is serious shoppin’! πŸ™‚ )

  231. Heather from Maine

    I think I’ll probably have to start walking because I won’t be able to afford gas for my car!!! $4.04 – $4.15!!! YIKES!!!

  232. megaheat2008

    HEATHER YOU ARE MOST WELCOME : )

  233. Lorri

    msully do you still need chuki?
    I have an extra one

  234. Clipsawd97

    still waiting to hear who i need to send money to so im all in for this. let me know. thanks!!!

  235. Cancan

    Jackdaddy, I would like to add my name to your list as well, if it’s not too late. Thanks!

    jhoeffner@optonline.net

  236. Terri

    Jackdaddy, that is fine if you want to do that. People will get them in the order they got on the list. That is fair. If you want to keep the list going, that is fine. Do what you feel is right. I am committing to 20. I am afraid to do more for fear I could disappoint someone or make thing really hard on myself. If I have more I will post and grab more names off your list. I offered to do this to help the people who post on this site. I do feel it has gotten much bigger than the 3 of us intended. Selling cars is not something I do normally. I was just offering to help people out.

  237. Monica

    Fair enough JD. Thanks for taking the time to maintain the list.

    Lorri, I have a Chuki, thank you so much for asking. She was my most miraculous find ever. Other than the very newest (Stacy et al) we have a full set.

  238. jackdaddy2008

    I feel its only right that I state that this is not my list!

    I merely maintain it like a janitor.

    The list is everyones on two a day.

    Metroxing created the space for us to be able to discuss stuff and create a list in the first place and without his and many others input in the last year or so, there simply wouldn’t be a list.

    ITS ALL OF OURS!

    Keep it real.

  239. MCL Sydney

    Terri n MSully…..just a suggestion.. since you’re limiting it to 20 and not everyone may NOT see the post at the sametime (due to time differences), offer it based on First in best dressed by interests on this blog (looks like Im #11 on the list ;o)..thx

  240. jackdaddy2008

    I think that is going to be how its done, its only fair.

  241. jackdaddy2008

    Also, I will try and email everyone a copy of the list minus email addresses.

    Gotta go.

  242. Terri

    Thanks JD for your hard work on the list. MCL Sydney I show you as number 4 from the list I printed on May 30th. You are good to go. At that time there was only 15 names on the list after Msully’s ebay presales.

  243. Materlover

    It’s nice to know that we have a group forum thanks to Met, but like JD says – it is all of us who make it up. I don’t do alot of talking, but I do enjoy the chatter and I finally ordered one of the Cars – the book. Hope to see it soon. Again thank you to all who make this an enjoyable and informative blog.

  244. Krisarmbar

    It sounds like you all will do everything you can to make things fair. No one can ask for more than that. Hopefully I made the top 60. If not, ebay will be calling my name!

    On an aside- I am SO GLAD to have found this site! It is refreshing to know that I am not the only obsessed adult out there that is infatuated with finding all of these cars! My son enjoys them too, but, (I haven’t admitted this to anyone before) deep down I know he is only the cover for my insanity. Happy hunting!!

  245. MCL Sydney

    Thx so much Terri.. really appreciate the heads up! Great to know I can now sit back and wait til the gooood news comes post 23/7. Enjoy Comic-Con :o(

  246. COMMENT TO HEATER FROM MAINES THING ABOUT WHAT MET YOU BET NO SWEAT BUBBA FET TO GET SAID:I COULDENT WALK THERE I LIVE IN A REALLY REALLY SMALL TOWN LIKE RAIDIATOR SPRNGS OK MORE THAN 12 CARS LIVIN THERE BUT ARE [ONLY]SCHOOL [ELEMENTARY AND HIGH SCHOOL COMBINED[NO MIDDLE SCHOOL]HAS ABOUT 900 STUDENTS].

  247. nhuynh85

    I feel the same way as Krisarmbar…i think i’m more obsessed with collecting it than he is…he used to get excited everytime he gets a new car and wants to open it right away, but now he doesn’t even want to open it…better for me though…i can keep it mint in a box…

    thanks again to met for this site…and everyone that has kept it alive….i enjoy reading the comments everyday…

  248. CaseStalker

    Wow this is CRAZY, I have been away too long, after the SOS dilemma (I did not buy one) and there not being any new cars and things going on at work, I have been absent. SO if there is a reason for me to get on the LSMQ list at this point other than to exercise faith in miracles let me know, I am willing to prepay.

  249. Clipsawd97

    can someone please tell me where to paypal the money to so i can get onto the paid list?

  250. Monica

    Clipsawd97, there is nowhere to prepay at this time. If you are in the first 20 requests on the non-paid list, then you are on Terri’s list to buy for and she will be accepting $$ through PayPal AFTER ComiCon. Hopefully Disneycarsfan is going to pick up another 20 or so, although we have not heard from him/her for a while here so that is somewhat up in the air. There may be other buyers lurking out there yet, there are still many weeks left before the convention, so keep checking here for further developments.

    Terri mentioned that she may buy more if possible/practical, she just did not want to commit to more than 20 for practical reasons. I am in the same boat. If it works out that I can get more fairly easily and everything is working out smoothly at that point, then I probably will do more.

  251. jackdaddy2008

    It should all come out in the wash.

  252. jackdaddy- I’m in…
    what do you need from me as a buyer?
    I can send you money etc., please let me know ok…..

    Sorry I just cant follow all of your lists etc….

    Thanks!
    nick

  253. jackdaddy2008

    Why would Mattel debut a website for cars collectors in San Diego?

  254. jack you see my post above yours with q’s?

  255. jackdaddy2008

    Apparently so, but the post has mysteriously been erased?

    Maybe we are not meant to see it?

    I am working on the lists just now.

  256. Just read through- Monica clarifed the paypal thing above-(had I just read a lil’ more I would have seen that!) thanks, I look forward to hearing from Terri.- Thanks Terri-

    NOw about the web site….
    what are you referring to jackdaddy??

  257. EM

    Terri – May I confirm with you that I am also on your list of 15-20 names? If so, do you need some contact information from me now so that someone does not pretend to be me later? My e-mail was posted way up top if you need it. I hesitate to post it again, because literally starting that day, that address started receiving huge amounts of spam.

    Has anyone else that posted their e-mail here seen an increase in notifications that you won the lottery in various countries?

    Found a brand new blue display pallet last week. Picked up my Trunk Fresh launcher and Stacy. Left six Stacy’s sitting there and several No Stall launchers (waiting for the No Stall three-pack). It was a good day.

    (MET: Sorry about the spam but those guys are pretty good about hoovering up emails … just to let you know, we do not collect emails of any kind and unless you get a personal email from me, it’s not us but sorry nevertheless).

  258. EM

    A PS to Terri – If I am on your list, a million thanks.

  259. ditto EM terri-
    let me know if you want my contact info now ok? You can also link to my website via my name and contact me there!

    Thanks!
    Nick Wright

  260. jackdaddy2008

    If you set your settings accordingly and have good security, then spam should automatically be sent to your junk folder and become harmless.

    Are you sure you posted your email Terri, I have no record of it?

  261. Terri

    Here is my list after MSully’s prepays. I am certain this is correct because at the time it was the whole list. I will add 5 more after JD finishes the updated list.
    Annie
    Nick
    EM
    MCL Sydney
    Chris
    Matt
    Nancy
    Mike
    Walkers dad
    Paul Brake
    BMW
    cptnmorgan 1972
    jpkherd
    indykit
    materlover

    I have everyone’s email addresses except for 1 but I will get that off the updated list. Once I know I have all 20 cars I will notify each of these buyers with my paypal acct and they may submit their payments. I will get all their addresses from their payment notification with shipping address.

  262. EM

    Met – No apology necessary. I know how those guys work. I keep that Yahoo account for just such occasions. Many thanks to you for running this great site.

  263. EM

    Terri – again thank you very much.

  264. jackdaddy2008

    At the end of the day its up to people what they do, but the actual precise list starts from before there was a list if you know what I mean, it goes by posts. However, your 20 actually looks about right.

    I will post soon, its been a pain in the rear redoing it tbh.

  265. Terri

    JD, What email are you referring that you have no record of? Sorry, I am confused.

  266. jackdaddy2008

    No probs.

    I mean I have never had or seen your contact details, is it possible you haven’t posted them?

  267. megaheat2008

    MONICA 4 YOU – YES I DID IN FACT TELL THEM AT MATTEL LAST YEAR VIA PHONE THAT IT WOULD BE NICE THAT THE TOY COMPANY (MATTEL) OFFER A POINTS REWARDS VIA CARD ID NUMBERING INFO ETC.. THAT WAY IT WOULD GIVE AN ALMOST PRECISE INSIGHT OF WHAT SALES GROWTH WOULD BE FOR THEM TO INCLUDE IN THEIR QUARTERLY POTENTIONS $$$$ “WE ALL AGREE TO PAY THE COST AND I THINK IT WOULD BE A BARGAIN AT SAY…..HMMM…$24.95 FOR THE YEAR A PLASTIC CARD A RECORD BANK OF POINTS YOU EARN BUY BUYING CARS,PLAYSETS,MINI’S EXCLUSIVES,DID I FAIL TO MENTION CLOTHING AND A BIG SELLER BOOKS = EDUCATION AND LEARNING IS KNOWING !!! SO AS FAR AS I KNOW THE IDEA HAS GOTTEN CLOSE TO THE UPPER ECHELON AT MATTEL YET BUT EVEN IF THEY SQUINT THEIR EYES HERE LETS SAY 100 PEOPLE ALONE JUST HERE AT 2ADAY WOULD BE WILLING TO DISH OUT THE YEARLY $24.95 OVER THE NEXT FOUR (4) YEARS TILL 2012 THAT IN MY BOOK OF NUMBERS TOTAL OUT TO $100,000 DOLLARS AND THIS IS JUST INITIAL SO DOES ANYONE WANT MORE PLASTIC ADDED TO THEIR -LADIES PURSES GENTS WALLETS YUP I AM IN SO HOPE MATTEL PICKS UP ON THIS ITS FREE MONEY HECK MAKE ME A HALLOWEEN LIGHTNING MCQUEEN FOR THE HOLIDAY AND I’LL BE QUIET FOR A DAY THATS IT LOL…..to be cont….

  268. jackdaddy2008

    Does anyone know how many more cars could actually still be released from the film?

    Just roughly?

    (MET: There are close to 100 more CARS with names/monikers identified in the Blu Ray finder but I would guess there are another 100 without names that we know of – maybe after SD CC, I’ll sit down and take screen shots of everyone missing and we can vote … πŸ™‚ )

  269. Terri

    You are correct. I have not publicly posted my contacts. I prefer to contact people directly. I have my spam settings correct but those people get smarter everyday and seem to find a way. I already get enough.

  270. jackdaddy2008

    Thought that might be the case. I totally respect your position, thats another reason why I only give my ebay on here, but it is also why I haven’t been able to send you a complete list with everyones emails!

    Contact me through ebay – jackdaddy2008 and I will send you a complete list with email if you need.

    Give me a little longer to get the list in relevance to when people posted.

  271. tjschatter

    Sounds good. Thanks!!

  272. tjschatter

    Sorry. Tjschatter is Terri. I actually printed your list JD. Met sent me the password and I printed it on May 30th. We should be good with the exception that I need 5 more names. My printed copy only has 15.

    (MET: List was updated on 6/7 – same password, Terri)

  273. jackdaddy2008

    Oh yeah! D’oh!

    Anyway, phew! – Finally finished numbering and checking the complete list in relevance to priotity.

    For those of you who don’t know, it was kinda decided to re-list the list in respect of who posted first in regard to obtaining a Lightning Storm Mcqueen from the forthcoming comic conference!

    So just like in prison, everyone now has a name and number!

    You should all be able to work out who is first in line now, as I have noted existing buyers in brackets (bought from msully).

    The new list has shrunk by 3 or 4 due to mistakes.

    If anyone has a problem, just contact me or Metroxing. I can be reached through ebay – jackdaddy2008.

    Hi Guys,

    Im so thrilled to see this coming out finally, however i live in the UK and there is no way i will be able to pick one of these up, if someone is willing would they kindly pick one up for me, i will pay in advance and for postage costs before you go, please someone drop me an email, the most excited 15 year old ever!!

    jamesdude90@hotmail.com

    Thanks a million!!

    James

  275. James

    Sorry, i forgot to add i can pay through paypal!

    Thanks,

    James

  276. jackdaddy2008

    Haha!

    Met we have a thing in the UK with prisoners, maybe its different in the states?

    Every morning prisoners are asked for their name and number before being let out their room.

    As for the hard work, its cool, I just want to see these cars become a fairer entity, and obviously, I want to help build a community to be able to do that in.

    This is the perfect site, and I hope Mattel don’t start a site.

    Maybe you should consider an annual membership for your site though? I would be happy to pay you $10 a year for keeping this going?

    If you made it so that everyone had to pay this to get a unique password (similar to the LSM list), then I am fairly sure you would make some good money quite quickly.

    I have absolutely no issue with someone like you making money, even though you are a friend of MATTEL!

    (MET: I was referring to the TV series ‘The Prisoner,’ πŸ™‚ … Even if Mattel starts a site, I’ll bet they manage to keep secrets from another department (as is the case now πŸ™‚ ) … and don’t worry, I am not going to charge a membership … we might start selling more ads after we move but that would be it. And we’ll probably have a second edition of the book – so that’s all the support I need … and yes, I’m a friend to the toy & diecast industry all over the world … but only because my wallet is open and I can’t seem to close it … πŸ™‚ )

  277. megaheat2008

    GENTS AND LADIES IT HAS SEEM TO ME THAT JACKDADDY HAS DONE A KACHOWAFABULOUS JOB PUTTING TOGETHER THE WORKS OF SELLING/BUYING LIST BUT “THERE ARE MORE BUYERS THAN WE ON THIS SITE HAVE PERSONS TO BUY WITHOUT ANY FURTHER ACTIONS WITH A GRADUAL LIST OF SAID 80 SHOULD BE THE CAP THE EXCITEMENT OF PUTTING THIS ALL TOGETHER AND MAKING IT HAPPEN HAS BEEN AWESOME WITH A COUPLE WEEKS LEFT AFTER REACHING A MAX 80 THE LIST SHOULD CEASE IF OUR BUYERS AT SDCC ACHIEVE A GREATER BASKET FULL OF ORANGES THAN THE AFTER SAID IS IN “AFTER ALL IT WILL BE WHAT IT IS”

  278. jackdaddy2008

    Thanks megaheat.

    I didn’t do it to be popular though, I did it to be nice, and a little selfish too, because hopefully we now all have a precedent for future obscure purchases?

    I feel glad this has happened, its been long overdue.

    Take that fleabay!

  279. Terri

    JD you are awesome. Only one name was out of order from my list. Sweet. I will take every name up to #37 including #37. That gives me 20 people who have not purchased yet.

    If disneycarsfan still intends to purchase and can get 20 we should be able to cover everyone so far. We might even be able to add the most excited 15 year old ever to the list since we are still just shy of 60. I thought his post was really cute.

  280. jackdaddy2008

  281. Terri

    You are on it my friend. Thanks for the hard work.

  282. Matt

    Again everyone…. this is great work. Glad to be confirmed on Terri’s list. Since this is our first group “buy” so to speak, it is a training exercise in motion for things to come.

    I agree with both trains of thought. I think it is hard to put a cap on things (number wise, not in quantity), but also agree that the burden should not be placed on our buyers. I think the 20 figure at one per person is more than fair under the circumstances, and if they can come up with more, than those others who have come recently will also have an opportunity.

    The problem that will eventually come is that others will try to jump up in line to get on a particular list, and offer to pay prices above the pre-determined figures by those who started this network to help everyone else out. Then we run the risk of an e-bay type scenario.

    As long as everyone understands the “rules” so to speak, I think we will be able to utilize this system for more than just LS MQ, and help curb the poaching that is becoming apparent in many areas.

    Good luck to everyone. If they ever do a Midwest Comicon, I am all in..

  283. Terri

    You are right Matt. I promise I will not cave no matter what someone tries to offer me. My 20 is my 20 and the set price will remain $35.00.

  284. collectormom

    jackdaddy you’re super cute πŸ™‚

    Good job

  285. Monica

    Same here, I am not caving! This is our anti scalping league.

    Terri, I did end up charging and extra $5 for shipping to the international folks because I know that its going to be at least that much more to ship outside the US.

  286. Monica

    Oh and I was not remotely implying that any Mattel club could ever replace this site. All the good stuff is here!

    Met, thank you again for providing such a superb resource for your fellow Cars fanatics :).

    I would totally pay for access here. Matter of fact, I’m going to buy your book right now.

  287. LTZ

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone involved with the list – this is great! Of course I’m a little disappointed that I don’t have a dedicated buyer yet (#41 on the list), but I’m sure it will come through.

    If there’s ever a similar event in Boston, I’ll be a “buyer”….

  288. jackdaddy2008

    I disneycarsfan406 or one other seller comes though and does a load like Terri, everyone on the list will get one.

    I cannot see the list growing to 80, but then again it is only June 12th!

    Gulp.

  289. LTZ

    Oh yeah, and MET – thanks for running the site – I too would pay for double super secret access here. It’s been quite the valuable asset since I started collecting.

    I just watched Cars again 2 nights ago with the boys (3 and 4), and From what I can see, there are a LOT more cars they can release, especially if they continue digging into the old school Radiator Springs…. There’s a ton of Dinoco, green Tia/Mia, mud LM, mud + leaves LM, etc. But now I’m trying to figure out when the current RS LM is, in the movie he’s got the bumper stickers except for about a second before he gets them. Oh well. Are we going to see a Sally with tattoo? I’d buy that before bugmouth LM, which I refuse to buy. If I feel we need it, I’ll break out the whiteout and some pepper on an extra LM. But I digress….

    (MET: Well, for those who missed our post in October 2007, here was our thoughts as to what would be great or possible … some have come true … part II was here).

  290. Heather from Maine

    I’m in with LTZ if the Comic Con comes to Boston! I’ve never been to one and I think it would be great fun!

    Thanks again Met, Terri, Msully, Jackdaddy and the other kind people for organizing all of this!!!

    (MET: There’s no giant Comic Con in Boston, but there are two major shows in NYC, Toyfair (trade only) & NY Comic Con but SD Comic Con is pretty much the Super Bowl & All-Star Game rolled into one event for comic & toys).

  291. Mr.T

    I have been following this site for a long while – being a CARS junkie, it is the ultimate place to turn to (glad I am not alone) it is so AWESOME!!! I’d like to be added to the list if possible. rayzart@qwest.net

    Met – thanks for the guidance about opening vs. unopening….. Still trying to decide whether to open them or not – looking for the right display case before I crack em’ all! Anyone have any ideas about cases??

    (MET: Here’s our post from a while back).

  292. James

    Thank you for adding me to the list, where it says 57 next to my name what does this mean, sorry to ask a stupid question guys!

    Thanks

    James

  293. indykjt

    All I can say is, YOU GUYS ROCK!!! This list is outstanding, and has in turn made me become more active on this site. I have been reading here for awhile, but the generosity shown towards a newbie like me by committing to buy this if possible, has been simply outstanding!

    There would probably be no other way I would even have a shot at this other than ebay, which would be at least triple what I have been asked to pay here.

    Terri, in advance, thank you for any attempt you make at acquiring one of the LSMQ’s for me from SDCC. From this Cars collector to you… Thumbs Up!!!

  294. PonyCar1

    I am a collector new to this site and I just want to say it is great!! I was wondering if it is still possible to get on the LSM list. I can pay in advance or when they are ready to ship.
    Thanks!

  295. jackdaddy2008

    James – it means you are 57th in line to get an LSM, but wait and see what happens soon.

    Ponycar1 – Your on, but we need an email or ebay address so we can contact you?

    I will post the updated list again when it hits 65.

  296. megaheat2008

    MONICA – UP DATE ON CARS IDEA (COLLECTORS CARD) SPOKE WITH MATTEL AND THEY DON’T ACCEPT OUTSIDE IDEAS YOU,I,WE WOULD HAVE TO CONTACT THE “ITA” INTERNATIONAL TOY ASSOCIATION WITH THE PROPOSAL,SUBMIT IT,GET LEGAL REP AND PATENT THE IDEA BEFORE ANYONE JUMPS THE TRAIN FOR A RIDE LOL… SO WHAT IT MEANS IF WE HAVE MEGA BUCKS TO BURN WE’D BE A RICH BUNCH LOL… AND IDEALLY THE CONCEPT WOULD WORK -LIKE A GET YOUR EXCLUSIVE GHOSTLIGHT MATER WITH CONES <—– HUH GOOD ONE IS’NT IT !!! I WOULD BE IN FOR IT , OR THE LITTLE VOLKS BUGGIE WITH FREE WINGS OF COURSE LOL… I AGREE THIS WOULD BE SENSATIONAL BUT LOOK AT “HOTWHEELS COLLECTORS.COM” THEY HAVE THE MEANS MONEY,LEGAL REP,REPUTATION UNFOUNDED,SIMPLY BEEN AROUND LONG ENOUGH TO KNOW WHEN THE GETTING IS GOOD SO THEY KNOW HOW TO OPEN THE DOOR ON EXCLUSIVES AS SOMEONE SAID TO ME “IF YOU COIN IT-FLIP IT” SO WITHOUT THE MEGABUCKS TO ENDEAVOUR ON THIS KIND OF JOURNEY TO ME ITS STILL WISHFULL THINKING-ANYBODY HAVE DONALD TRUMPS HOME PHONE NUMBER LOL…TO BE CONT…..

  297. jackdaddy2008

    They don’t want it for a reason.

    Call me paranoid, but I genuinely suspect theres a deal with eBay. Its big business and dwarfs the total made by the SOS.

    It could also be that they don’t see the point with no cars 2 toys to make/sell.

    Regardless, isn’t it better to keep ‘our’ club here for free?

  298. megaheat2008

    WELL JACKDADDY I AGREE BUT NOTHING IN THIS LIFE COMES FOR FREE SO IF METROXING NEEDED A LITTLE OF THE GREEN MUNKERCHINGACHOWS I WOULD GLADLY PUT DOWN THE PLUMBING WRENCH (SINCE IT BUSTED ME IN THE LIP TODAY) OUCHHH!!!! AND GRAB A FARMERS PITCHFORK AND SHOVEL IT HERE IF REQUESTED AND ITS ALL WORTH IT – WITHOUT THE WISDOM OF METROXING THIS SITE WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE, AND TO HIS WISE AUTHORITY,KNOWLEDGE,AND UNFORGIVING TIME,ENDLESS EFFORTS,”THIS SITE TO ME OF COURSE IS VALUED MORE THAN OIL-GAS-GOLD OR DIAMONDS- AND THAT JAGUAR MY WIFE WANTS <—– JUST KIDDING ABOUT THE JAG SHE LOVES THE MINI-VAN LOL……..TO BE CONT………

    (MET: Well, thanks Joe … I started like everyone here … ,”Hey, these CARS are cool … how come I haven’t seen all 12 on the back … but none of the 2-packs are shown on the back of the single cards, does that mean there are other hidden ones?”

    When all the store employees started running away from me, I knew I had to make my own list πŸ™‚ and the rest is history … but hey, if you all weren’t here everyday with your contributions and you goading me, this site would have 5 posts πŸ™‚ … so we’re all here, we all in and shhh, there will be more in CARS in 2009 πŸ™‚ so clear another room in the house).

  299. Nicole H

    I would like to be added to the list if possible! I know I am pretty far down and luck is never on my side but what the heck! Email to contact me is hnicole.77@gmail.com. Thanks!

  300. Don

    hello there,

    If you can add me to the list, it would be greatly appreciated. my email is don_kwan@hotmail.com, i also have paypal if that helps. looking forward to hearing from you. again, many thanks

    Don

  301. Monica

    Terri and JD, one minor adjustment to list, I just noticed that Megaheat is currently on Terri’s list to buy for, but he and I already did a trade for a blu-ray, so he should be put on my list and Terri can take one more, yay!

  302. Monica

    Hey megaheat, it just so happens that I work in the patent business, but sadly I don’t believe our Cars club idea is patentable ;).

    On the other hand, if we could get a license from Disney…..

  303. Terri

    Thanks Monica. Funny, Megaheat is the one I thought I had out of order from before. Ok. So I will add number 38 then. Awesome.

  304. jackdaddy2008

  305. megaheat2008

    Hi Terri : ) thankyou, but somebody else will be very happy to be added to your list, I gladly am willing to give up my spot and owe it to the wonderful people here at 2aday : )

  306. Richard

    Jackdaddy2008 et al.
    Do we have numerous people who have pre-ordered from the UK/Europe? I ask as it might work out easier/cheaper to ship as one big parcel to the UK, with just one customs document, and then send on to the individuals once this side of the pond?? Only an idea, just glad we have this site and just want to make the process easier.

  307. Mr.T

    Thanks JD for keeping the list updated!!

  308. jackdaddy2008

    Richard – Nice idea, and yes I thought of that, but there is simply no way of insuring them this way.

    Too complicated.

    Plus the total amount will breach tax threshold and result in huge customs fee.

    Simpler doing it individually.

  309. Chris

    Terri, I’m pretty sure, I’m the Chris on the list. (but I do see another Chris on here often so I’m not 100% certain)My email is: cdurrant801@hotmail.com. Please let me know if you would like any money beforehand.

  310. Terri

    Chris, I do not have you on my list. The Chris I have has a different email address. JD, Can you respond? Do we need to add another Chris on here? Was this one omitted in error or do I have the wrong one? Help!!

  311. Walker's Dad

    Thanks to all again for getting me on the list, especially Terri and Jackdaddy2008.

    My E-mail is Tolstoyan@yahoo.com. Please let me know how you’d like me to pay when the time comes.

  312. jackdaddy2008

    I think both chris’ should be put on the list side by side. I assumed that wordpress only allowed one user name per user, so Chris shouldn’t be used by two different people. They will go on the update.

  313. James

    Im loving the support and community feel to this site more and more, especially the way in which people are willing to help each other out as best they can, something i havent experienced on other sites!! Im just keeping my fingers crossed for all us who dont have a dedicated buyer yet!!

    Keep up the good work!

  314. BMW

    JackDaddy 2008: Messaged you with my email address. I am 21 on Terri’s list. Did not want to post my email here due to spam.

    To Terri: I sent my email address to JackDaddy.
    So I am sure he will update the list and send my email to you. ! Have paypal. Just wanted to say you are so kind to help out those who can’t go but are Cars Collectors.

  315. BMW

    oops, I meant I am 10 to buy from Terri and 21 on the overall list of Jack Daddy.

    Thank you again.

  316. ChrisD

    Thanks Jack/Terri, I changed my Username to avoid anything like that in the future. Once again, Terri, please let me know if you would like any $ before you go to avoid having to front everything.

  317. Terri

    ChrisD, I do not need any money up front. I am bringing extra to buys the cars. I will notify everyone once I have them all and then you can send payment through paypal.

  318. jackdaddy2008

    To confirm, there are actually 4 Chris’!

    I will update and post the amended relevant list in 24 – 48 hours.

  319. Krisarmbar

    Any updates on a new/third buyer? Just wondering if there have been any more bites…

  320. Stanley

    I was wondering if there was any more room on an already long list of buyers for this McQueen.

    I would definitely pay $10 over the cost, as well as shipping costs.

    I would even trade a custom Frank the Combine plus $10, plus shipping for one of these.

    Can anyone help?

  321. jackdaddy2008

    Leave details and we will add you o the update on Saturday

  322. Stanley

    Anyone that can get me one can reach me at scholtes.3@hotmail.com.

    Thanks in advance.

  323. If anybody is willing to buy one for me I’ll pay $20 extra + shipping to the Netherlands. If anybody can help me with this or add me to a list please let me know:

    wilgertribbers@hotmail.com

    Thanks in advance.

  324. Kieran, UK

    To Jackdaddy 2008 and the rest of the team supplying LSMs,
    I’m delighted to be on the list. Thanks for creating such a sense of community!
    Metro, Keep up the good work, you help make me look like the best Dad in the world.

    To add my tuppence of help, if anyone is interested, if you want to download or print pictures of the major 14 characters from the movie, go to http://www2.disney.co.uk/DisneyMovies/cars/#5_1 where you can print out the pictures, download the wallpaers (or printscreen and then edit the pictures in Paint, etc). I printed them out and then laminated them as pictures, which my son really liked. His friends have even started asking for copies.

    (MET: our post here covers some other places where there’s free CARS art – and at the bottom links to all the int’l Disney sites).

  325. Adrian

    Did my post just dissappear ??

  326. Adrian

    I guess it did then O.K. here goes with another, i just spent three hours reading through the posts and could i go on a list somewhere My wifes e-mail is:
    pinkypie@blueyonder.co.uk

    I am using hers as my pc is being torn apart.
    As i have no idea what happened to my other post i would just like to say thank you to all the people trying to help us bods get a storm lighning and that this forum is like no other i have come across for helping people out. I will post this one and see if it disappears, hopefully not LOL !

  327. Adrian

    A second post dissappeared can someone help ?
    Whats happening ??

  328. gerbil279

    My first post to this site although I avidly read the contents of this site. My source of cars knowledge for the last year. If there is still availability on the list, it would be great to be included.

  329. I would also like to get on the list to have LSM purchased for me. Please contact me at mike@bluequartz.net to let me know who I need to send money and contact/shipping information to.

    Thanks
    Mike

  330. Lambo

    Hi, from Mexico, I would like to know if I can join to the list too?? Because I will not be able to travel to SD to get this model…

    Can anyone help me??? I’ll take care of the costs, and some dinner to you too!!!

    My messenger: ivan_loz@hotmail.com

    Thanks guys!!!

  331. Adrian

    Afternoon everyone, any news on anybody being able to buy more from the show or if there is a limit ?? is it a question of calling the organisers and find out or calling Mattel, i,ll call them if someone wants to give me the numbers i dont mind all i have to remember the time difference from England to San Diego and i,m off (8 hours)
    LoL, Adrian

  332. Richard

    Hi all,

    I’ve just found an interesting item on ebay. Although the ‘Buy it now’ price is far to rich for me, the photo’s show what the LSMQ might look like from other angles.

    Ebay user Unkel_Rikelo
    Item number: 300235644180
    Lightning Storm Mcqueen Factory Sample!

    (MET: The only two real possibilities is to either know someone at the factory or more likely, someone at Mattel … since the first production ones are very limited and they go to the client (Mattel) to look at and approve).

  333. Adrian

    Do these sellers have links to the factory therefore access to this type of thing ??? Adrian

  334. MattDaddy

    Hi msully, is there any way you could put me on your list for 2. I live in Canada and there’s no way I could make it. If you could get 2 for me, one for me and one for my son I’d be eternally greatful. Please let me know and thanks very very much. I know compensation and shipping would be required.

    please let me know at craigslistreplize@yahoo.ca.

    Thanks thanks thanks in advance

    thanks.

  336. jackdaddy2008

    Terri-

    Looks like I’ll be buying from you:

    35 – Franchiz (TERRI?)

    Here is contact info…

    ebay: franchiz
    email: franchiz@gmail.com

    Thank you so much for doing this!

  338. djh1man

    Not sure if anyone else here has received offers to pick up these outside of this forum. I received one from nascarnbroncosfans and an invitation to pay via Paypal. Is this seller part of the list here? I realise that this is open to abuse and would rather we all stuck to the published forum here of fans trying to help each other in an above board way.
    Could you confirm JD 2008, is the agreed price $40? Does it include shipping? And will all transactions be conducted via eBay? I think it will help us support your generosity and our now thriving community.
    Just for reference I am now getting a few invitations daily to give my bank details to unknown Nigerians who happen to have come into a lot of money which they are willing to share with me!

  339. Lambo

    Hello everyone, I suggest that we need some kind of order here, because I think we can make it if we organize someway…

    I need to thanks jackdaddy2008 for the effort… My suggestion is to create some division between buyers and sellers (we are almost 15 buyers for each seller, I think is too much)

    Does anyone have any good idea???

    Thanks!

  340. jackdaddy2008

    Nascarbroncosfan is merely an ebay selling cars fan going to the con. I haven’ read his feedback/profil on ebay and buyers should always check listings properly, but I trust he is a good man.

    As for order, at the end of the day, if 3 sellers get 20 each, then the fourth can get the rest.

    People need to come forward, we cannot make them.

    With all due respect its one month and 330 posts since we first asked for a list.

    This would appear to be the only way our idea can work.

  341. Adrian

    Many thanks to Jackdaddy for doing his upmost to organise this, just let me know how when who to Paypal to, Adrian

  342. disneycarsfan406

    hey everyone sorry for disappearing for a while my wonderful son spilled milk all over my laptop and had to wait to get a new one, now all good and ready to find out what i missed, i am still going to the con and would like to find out how to help everyone out, i am going to all 4 days and bringing $1000 dollars to buy as many as i can. so please let me know if people want to prepay or wait till after and what is the going rate. please fill me in. thanks

    (MET: Glad to have back in the cyberworld … must resist urge to make joke about spilled milk … must resist, must resist … oh, it passed. Glad to hear everything is okay. See you in SD!)

  343. jackdaddy2008

    Update coming on monday, emails will be sent, need nascaranbroncosfans list of buyers first

  344. Brandon'sMom

    My son and I have collecting The Disney Pixar Cars since the original 12 or 15 were released. We just saw this new Lightning Storm McQueen and would each like to have one more than anything! We would like to get on the list for 2. Would someone going to the convention please email us at bbdoll1@oh.rr.com and let us know if we can get on the list. We have been reading this website for a while now. It is very helpful. Thank-you!

  345. Terri

    Hi Disneycarsfan. Glad to see you back. We have nearly 80 people on the list now. I am waiting for payment until after. Msully did prepay. I believe nascarnbroncosfan did too. It is up to you what you do. Msully and I did $35.00 for US and $40 for outside. I do not recall what nascarnbroncosfan did. We have tried to keep it fair by going in order of the list. Jackdaddy has worked hard to keep that up to date for us. He has flagged who prepaid and who will be buying from me. There will be plenty of people left who would be thrilled to get one from you. Hope this helps. Once again, welcome back.

  346. Terri

    Lambo, I think Jackdaddy is right. We actually have good control of the list. Most of us sellers have committed to 20 so we are good. With the list this large it is the only way to be fair.

    Is there still conversation out there about the LSM? My conversations seem to have ended with Terri’s entry on June 29th. Is there somewhere else that I need to be that I don’t know about. Just wondering…

    Anyone have one of the Lightningstorm McQueen’s they would consider selling to a soldier who is in Afghanistan & couldn’t get away to attend the show? If so, please contact me at albert.j.smith1@us.army.mil
    Thanks to all & God Bless America!
