Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Lightning Storm McQueen Final Pics + Stand

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!

Here is the final production release Lightning Storm McQueen – available at San Diego’s Comic Con exclusively.

Production will number 5,000 – $20 each at the show. Oops, still $15 – sorry for the brain glitch, was busy trying to backup the site and write a new post. So, still $15 – my error. Sorry.

It comes in the white box you see to the left and everything you see on the right.

The Blue Ransburg Lightning Storm McQueen, the clear stand, the black base with graphics and even the plexi cover – nice!

6 to a Master Case for those who plan on bulking up πŸ™‚

And for those who want more exacting measurements – It’s 4 3/4″ x 5″ x 5 3/4 & the master carton is 9.5″ x 10″ x 12.”

Our original post was here.

If you were planning on going Saturday (or Wednesday night), SOLD OUT!

Tix still available Thursday, Friday & Sunday … though check the selling bar and get it before it strikes RED.

If you live in the San Diego area and are on a tighter budget, you can also consider volunteering three hours of your time and you get in that day for free.

There is only online registration so plan ahead if you think you might want to go … and now, of course, you have to decide on a specific day of days. Good luck! See ya there!

    James

  3. Heather from Maine

    Looks great!

    Thanks for the info!

  4. BMW

    just beautiful. thanks Met.

  5. jackdaddy2008

    I hope everyone will be sending msully/monica some more cash, as it has went up from $15 to $20!

    I have.

    Met? Is it a defo $20 now?

    (MET: Oops, sorry, my bad. Was busy trying to do three things and write – sorry – still at $15 – fixed post above – sorry).

  6. jaredjaded

    msully, would you prefer us to send you the additional amount now? or later on after the con? Let us know. Thanks.

  7. Monica

    Either is fine for me, thanks!

  8. ltcmdrobvious

    Is it too late to get on the list for people doing bulk purchases at the show?

  9. BMW

    Jack Daddy,
    Did you get my email address for the Lightning Storm? I sent it to you via your ebay account?

  10. jackdaddy2008

    ltcmdrobvious – No, but whether or not you get one is debatable as one seller has come forward but disappeared?

    Only Terri and Msully are guaranteed to get users one, but there are about 20 other buyers who don’t have yet. Post your details (ebay/email) and we will add you to the list for an LSM which will be posted on takefiveaday.com.

    BMW – Yes buddy, I will post when the move is done on here and there simultaneously. Think his will be Saturday?

  11. jaredjaded

    Alright, Monica, I’ll do it later this week when my paycheck clears… Yes! I’m THAT broke that i dun even have $5 to pay now! All my money has gone into the shipping for the speedway set… 😦 I’ll let you know when i’m ready to send it to you. Thanks!

  12. Heather from Maine

    MONICA

    Just sent the extra cash.

    Thanks!!!

    (MET: Again, sorry for the extra work – Lightning Storm $15, Mighty Muggs $20 … got the two confused).

  13. Blake

    is there a way someone can pick one up and mail it to me??
    bloken468@hotmail.com

  14. Nicole H

    I have not received an email yet as who to send money to for one. I was on the list but #58 I think. Please let me know what I need to do!

  15. Chris

    Not sure if I’m not the list or not, but can you please add me?

    krisb01@hotmail.com

    Thanks!!!

  16. Juan

    Metro
    Any word on a limit to the number of cars a person can buy?
    Thanks

  17. Juan

    Also do we know if these are going to be available everyday of the show or just on certain days?
    Thanks

    (MET: Some of the questions are answered in the first post but no, no logistical limit and by that I mean, if you wanted to buy 2,000 at 9 AM Thursday morning, they might not sell it to you (don’t laugh, people are paying $1,300 for the Speedway Set πŸ˜‰ ) … but if it’s Sunday at 4 PM and there’s 500 left and you wanted all, they’d be happy to sell it to you. So, buy a dozen or even 100 shouldn’t be a problem if you can carry it … it will be available until they sell out …).

  18. LTZ

    Awesome – I can’t wait!!

  19. Stanley

    Is it too late to jump on the list?
    I’d be willing to pay an additional $10, plus shipping.

    Thanks a bunch.

  20. Monica

    Whew, I am so glad it’s still $15 for the LM, that was going to be a hassle.

    Heather, I’ll either refund you or get you something else, we can chat offline, I’ll send you an email.

  21. Stanley

    Monica, if I can sweeten the deal…….If you can get me a ComicCon Lightning McQueen, I’ve got a custom Stanley for you.I’ll even pay an additional $5.

    What do you think?

  22. Stanley

    Oops! Sorry, I meant a custom Frank, not a custom Stanley. (Although that wouldn’t be a bad project to work on….)

  23. 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 please let me know:

    wilgertribbers@hotmail.com

    Thanks in advance.

  24. Matt

    I think they have really done a great job with putting this car together, and packaging it as a complete product. I will be putting this specimen on the desk at work. They have also done a great job on the price point. Truly seems to be one of the better prices we have paid for a car or set…. (although dropping $300 for the SOS set doesn’t seem so bad now.) Can’t wait to get this one !!!

  25. jackdaddy2008

    Now if only they could work out how to get the main product on shop shelves…………………

  28. Adrian

    So whats happening with a “list” of people who would like to buy one of these ??? I would like to buy one if as you say people are buying bulk from the show, oh to still live in Pasedena !!!!!

  29. LUCA

    BUT i’m in Italy………….

  30. gerbil279-UK

    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.

  31. Monica

    Hey Stanley and others, if I am able to get any more than the 20 that I have already agreed to purchase, I will sell them in the order of the list as has been discussed for $35 which includes US shipping, a little more for shipping outside the US.

  32. Stanley

    Sounds like a plan. I really appreciate your consideration.

  33. Blake

    Monica please keep me on that list my email is as noted above BLoken468@hotmail.com Thank you

  34. daniel warren

    I WAS WONDERING IF I PREPAIDED FOR LIGHTNING MCQUEEN WOULD SOMEONE PICK ONE UP FOR ME. I’LL PAY FOR SHIPPING AND YOUR TIME . THANK YOU DANIEL AUDIOK@VCI.NET

  35. jackdaddy2008

    Update coming on Saturday.

    I will try and email everyone who has posted a copy of the list.

    Its about 70 now, so 40 are covered, with the remaining 30 looking doubtful as the third seller has pretty much dissapeared?

    However, the list is not a waste of time, hopefully some sellers will come forward and help us out?

  36. Terri

    As Monica stated above, if possible to get extras I too will be going in order of the list and charging the same price. My concern is about what I can carry back to the hotel. My hotel is not within walking distance but, is included in the shuttle route. Picture riding on a bus with several large boxes.

    After preview night I spend most of my days in panels and sometimes the floor is closed before I can get there. I need to get most of mine bought on preview night. If they have not run out by Sunday I will have another opportunity to buy more. I promise I will try every chance I get.

    I am really sorry our third seller has disappeared. There is still time though. Hopefully someone will come forward.

  37. Matt

    Thanks Terri. Afterwards, will you then contact us by email to arrange payment, mailing and so forth. We do truly appreciate this collaborative effort. Can’t wait… πŸ™‚

  38. Terri

    I will contact everyone by email as soon as I have them in my hot little hands. I will take my computer with me so I can do it at night.

  39. Matt

    That is as long as your back doesn’t go out on your shuttle trek back to the hotel…. We’ll all have to pitch in a little extra for some heating packs and icy hot for you. At least MET gave you the approximate weight and measurements so you can do some training beforehand. LOL

  40. brent

    Metro, man thank you for all the insight on this corrosive money melting hobby of ours. Im wondering if you have a recommendation on a trust worthy individual who might be able to help me purchase a lighting storm mcqueen? I read your blog daily and recognize several names….just not sure how to ask. thanx for your help. p.s. Colorado still hasn’t seen van or dinoco pitty yet.

    (MET: Hopefully, once LS McQ reaches people’s hands, it will be easier to get one … I’m not sure most places have gotten case K yet but coming soon).

  41. collectormom

    jackdaddy, have you tried to email disneycarsfan406? In one of his posts he said he’s flying to the con, has tickets already and set aside $1000 to buy Lightning Storm. He posted his email address on the first thread about LSMQ.

    It’s hard to believe but maybe he just doesn’t check in here very often (not possible!) and doesn’t realize how many people are on the list.

    Since you’re the ListMaster I thought you’d be the best to drop him a line πŸ™‚ Ha! I just pictured you in a cape standing Superman style with LSMQ on your chest

  42. Monica

    I actually emailed him/her (disneycarsfan I mean) a while back with no response, but I am still holding out hope.

  43. jackdaddy2008

    Collectormom –

    yes, I emailed the most recent list with all the emails and a reminder of how much money could be made.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if LSM selling on ebay for $100+ has had something to do with the recent silence? Thats obviously not necessarily the case, but it is odd that Terri and Monica have been so active, and the othert seller hasn’t especially when there are 30 customers lined up?!

    At the end of the day, freewill is freewill.

  44. Nascarnbroncosfans

    I could not get anyone to commit to get me at least 2 nor 10 for my local SLC Ut, Disney collecting group…SOoooooo
    I am going and will help who ever I can. $40.00 each. plus shipping. if by paypal 44.00 each + Shipping. I am driving down from Salt Lake City, Ut. This will help cover gas up and back and show tickets and motel. thanks

  45. Nascarnbroncosfans

    rats forgot my contact info…

    nascarnbroncosfans@msn.com

  46. jackdaddy2008

    You sir are a saint.

    I have been maintaining a list on here, and will email you the list in 48 hours or so.

    We all pretty much agreed and decided to make the list in order of posts, so if you can contact the relevant listees, I am sure they will be thrilled.

    I hope we all get one and stick it to ebay.

  47. Nascarnbroncosfans

    well saint, no…..beer, whiskey, drinker, Rock n country music fan, Clive Cussler fan, just someone who DOES help on ebay on certain Nascar Rc cars and keeping the versions straight. (please vote positive my reviews and buying guides!!!! hint hint) I even try to help my fellow Neca figures fans out buy making glass display cases for the larger 18 inch figures. No one makes them, but me I guess. anyway, back on topic….

    But, I am willing to help. HOWEVER, for those frugal readers ( I am one myself) packing these and trying to keep USPS and UPS from breaking them is going to be expensive. I will most likey have to get boxes and packin-peanuts. This costs money. I went a tic higher than Monica as to be sure that those costs are covered. I hope its enough that I am trying.

  48. jackdaddy2008

    Just use bubble wrap and parcel paper.

    Cheap, reliable and light for shipping.

    I have 100% success using this method.

    Foam is rubbish and unnecessary.

  49. Nascarnbroncosfans

    With that clear display lid? I wouldnt feel comfortable doing that.

  50. Nascarnbroncosfans

    terri…. I can help you with getting them to where ever you need to. I will have a pickup truck

  51. Nascarnbroncosfans

    Stupid paypal takes alot. I figured it wouldnt take that much.

  52. Nascarnbroncosfans

    Now heres a thought, with everyone going we all should meet up and have a “packin-shipping party”….

    ciao for now…

  53. Noel

    I hope all goes well for msully. I’d love to have one of those in my display case.

  54. Adrian

    What a good man you are Nascarnbroncosfans, i just wish i could help somehow, i am going to sent an e-mail tonight to someone my family knows in Pasedena i have no idea if it WILL help or if he knows of anyone but its got to be worth a try,
    Adrian

  55. jackdaddy2008

    Nascarnbroncosfans – the lsm comes in a cardboard box. I meant bubble wrap the box, then wrap the bubble wrapped box in brown paper.

  56. jackdaddy2008

    Hello eveyone, the LSM list will be posted at midnight on Sunday evening/Monday morning uk time.

  57. Adrian

    Thanks to everyone trying to make this a team effort, just to ask people in the U.S. is there any cars that are harder to find that are available here in the U.K i know i know i,m probably having a laugh but somewhere i heard the luigi and guido italian two set is harder to find, just want to do something you know, feel like a freeloader here as i cant contribute much because the states gets it all, just let me know if can get anything, i used to have to get digestive biscuits for somebody from the U.S. because they wernt in America LOL,

    If there is anything that I can ever do for you, please let me know.

    This is what collecting Cars is all about; people helping people.

  63. jackdaddy2008

    Its what life should be about.

    A random guy in Scotland, a couple of smoking hot ladies in the states and many other cars collectors all made each other happy.

    I like this.

  64. Gary

    is there any way I can get added to the list i want to get this for my son he is a huge collector but we live in NY

  65. Gary

    my e-mail address is Gary31972@yahoo.com thanks

  66. Noel

    What happened Jackdaddy, I used to be at the top of that list? πŸ™‚ I’m only joking but I’m pretty sure I did a Buy it Now when it read 10 available on the first msully auction.

  67. jackdaddy2008

    Eh?

    If you read through the posts before a list was actually created, you will see that you have always been 9th Mr.! haha.

    Its been a big effort, but I am glad.

  68. Monica

    You are correct Noel, you were the first purchaser on my ebay auction πŸ™‚

  69. jackdaddy2008

    Yes, but look at the original LSM post, and you will all see that we agreed to revise the list to reflect order of interest/request.

    Noel was 9th.

  70. jackdaddy2008

    I know your kidding, but some will panic if I don’t write what I just did.

  71. Thanks a ton for adding me, I can do with out the speedway set but not this! Here’s my info to get in with whichever seller is willing. For this I created a new email: 2aday @ mikeshaw.com if you need more info obviously you can email me. Thanks!

  79. jackdaddy2008

    Postage won’t be more than $30 for 2 sending to europe. These won’t weigh a lot more than a 3 pack.

    Does anyone know if the glass case of Cars characters will be at the SDCC? I make glass cases and have several people ask me for one and I need dimensions. Or if someone has contact info for the owner of one I will need their contact info

  85. Brent

    nascarnbroncosfan: hello, wow I havnt had a chance to read the postings lately, but did notice that im on a list…..thanks to all who is helping organize this list. I did e-mail you my info, but will leave it with you here.
    email: shade4ourchildren@msn.com
    again thank you guys….
    metro: sidenote, I have become friends with a mattel rep, here in denver, you would not belive the hoops this individual has to jump thru to keep cars on the shelf. Not to mention the hundreds of cars that she has to pull from shelves (old models, ramones, etc..) and sends back as not sellable! Maybe this will finally send a message that we need new cars in stock…..maybe. thanx to all.

  86. jackdaddy2008

    I would love to speak to this person in an official capacity.

  87. Brent

    no joke….the meetings behind closed doors!!!

  88. Nascarnbroncosfans

    Brent and Met and Mark C., jacksdaddy, others who have prepaid, thanks alot for the advice and support. I am grateful. Shipping costs SHOULD BE minimal, 12.00-30.00 (hopefully) depending upon location. Its ….Location Location Location..
    I do not overcharge for any shipping costs. Never have. I do not want to either. However, I am a LT ebayer and do have 100% feedback. Buyers who prepaid THANKS. This gives me a definte count of those who do want them and how many I need to buy. I do not want to have them sitting around after the show. I do know that some are cautious and I can understand. Again, thanks

  89. Nascarnbroncosfans

    An afterthought, I can be contacted through MSN messenger should anyone care to contact me through that.

    nascarnbroncosfans@msn.com

  90. Nascarnbroncosfans

    yea its a relist too if I am not mistaken

  91. Annie

    Terri, its Annie
    I need to know how to pay you for them.

    I Havent forgotten computer has been broken.

    Annie

  92. jpkherd

    jpkherd is jpkelly@mac.com

    How do I make payment? or are we waiting to confirm that they are available.

    jpkherd

  93. Nascarnbroncosfans

    you can contact me at nascrnbroncosfans@msn.com and I cna send you a paypal invoice

  94. Clipsawd97

    Nascar….payment sent last night.

  95. Terri

    Annie, I will send you an email to pay me through paypal once I have the cars. I do not want to be prepaid. You are good for now. I am taking my names and emails with me to the con. I will email you from there once I know I have been able to purchase all the cars.

    (MET: First, let us thank the 5 SD Comic Con attendees who have agreed to buy LS McQ at the show and give first opportunities to readers of 2aday – thanks! If nothing else, LS McQ is not going to be easy to carry around as it’s essentially a large square cube and is bulky so thank you for making the effort. In a small way, I’m happy to provide a venue to link buyers and sellers but I am leaving this venture entirely in their hands – how many they want to sell and they can set the price. If you agree to their terms, then you should complete the transaction. If you do not wish to agree to those terms, just politely step away. There is NO need to comment on the price or format as they are doing ALL of us a favor. If you’re not interested, you’re not interested for whatever reason, that’s fine – just politely move on. Thank you. And again – thank you msully, terri, Nascarnbroncosfans, disneycarsfan406 & selling4nolan for offering to buy and ship out to dozens (76 people now?) … and of course, jackdaddy2008 for keeping the list updated and accurate. So, thanks for all those making positive contributions to this mini venture).

  96. Mr.T

    HEAR HEAR!! And a HUGE hats off to Met for maintaining this site and giving us our fix each day. And another hat tipped to the community here – I am glad to be a part of it!

  97. Nascarnbroncosfans

    thanks Met

  98. Nascarnbroncosfans

    I did get a quote to London and Italy, for 4 lbs or less was about 21.85 UNINSURED, similar box size and weight but most out of country should be right about that for 1 LSMcQ FIRST CLASS Postage. Anything over 4lbs is Global Priority

  99. MattDaddy

    I agree. Thanks very much to all involved!! Yeah!

  100. megaheat2008

    WELL MY FRIENDS POSTAGE A GREAT TOPIC – MAILED OUT THE MORTGAGE PAYMENT IN A GOOD AMOUNT OF TIME AND YOU KNOW WHAT “THANKYOU PONY EXPRESS” IT WAS LATE AND I AM BEING CHARGED A LATE FEE! WELLS FARGO TELLS ME THEY ARE HAVING SIMULAR COMPLAINTS BECAUSE OF REGULAR POSTAL SERVICE IS NOT MOVING YUPPER I BLAME IT ON DAY TRADERS AT THE STOCK EXCHANGE OVER RAW FUELS (OIL) AND THE POST OFFICE IS FEELING IT AS WELL SO POINT IS WHEN MAILING OUT ANYTHING IMPORTANT AS YOUR MORTGAGE OR THE”LIGHTNING MCQUEEN”BE PATIENT I’M SURE THE POSTAL EMPLOYEES ARE DOING THEIR BEST TO DELIVER EVEN THOUGH I THINK ITS PHOO-PHOO-PHOOEY

    (MET: Once upon a time, banks thought of themselves are guardians of your money – now, you are a walking dollar sign – they figure out out how much you are worth to them every year … whether that’s paying you low interest or nickel & diming you at every chance … notice that payments are due on a Sunday now and they don’t count Saturday as “a day” so really, your payment is due Friday before 3 PM …).

  101. Nascarnbroncosfans

    Just got back from the Wireless store… I bought a wireless card for the laptop…. I will be online through out the whole buying while at SDCC and inline at the door and purchasing process… more later…. I have heard rumors that some booths do raffle tickets for who goes first?.. Anyone heard what the process is on CARS characters?

    more later, Scoop-Nascarnbroncofans on the job

    (MET: Mattel is going to be straightforward – sell, sell, sell until they can sell no more. But others will operate differently – sometimes it’s because they are only selling a couple hundred of something or the demand will be so great they will clip your pass or stamp your hand as you’re only allowed to buy 1 a day … NOT so with LC McQ – Mattel has said they want to sell out … See you there!).

  102. Nascarnbroncosfans

    Met: are you going? Would be nice to organize a group breakfast or group get together

    (MET: I’ll be going but I have some meetings scheduled – I’ll send you all my cell when we get closer – call me and we can try and set something up).

  103. LTZ

    Wow – I can’t believe I got censored. I have to disagree MET – if I’m paying someone to do something, they’re not doing me a favor. jackdaddy2008 is (AFAIK) still deserving of thanks for compiling and organizing the list.

  104. LUCA

    in addition..what special prices!!! uhuuuuu

  105. Terri

    LTZ, you did not hire us, we offered. That is a favor whether you pay for it or not. Did people offer to do something for you that you are not able to do for yourself? Yes. That is a favor. Please respect that or kindly refuse the offer.

  106. jackdaddy2008

    What does

    (AFAIK)

    mean?

  107. Terri

    I would like to know that too JD.

  108. georgehp

    Could (AFAIK) mean

    A Fabulous, Awesome, Intelligent Knight? A.F.A.I.K.

    Thanks for maintaining the list JD.

  109. carsmama

    AFAIK – As Far As I Know

  110. Mr. T

    AYFKM!!! I have been working on that all day!!

    Ferrari’s – I love the Ferrari’s!!

  111. LTZ

    AFAIK = as far as I know.

    Google is your friend.

    (MET: EDIT – You made a statement. I followed up. Matter closed).

  112. Lorri

    LTZ I can see where you are coming from, but……
    wait and see what these will go for. I think the favor part is selling them to us for a LOT less than they could get on fleabay. And of course this is all voluntary. Personally for me its a whole lot cheaper than a plane ticket, hotel, meals, and entrance fees!!!!!
    Thanks guys!

  113. DaddyO

    LTZ –
    With all due respect, each of these sellers could easily buy half the number of LSMs that they have committed to buying for us and instead sell them on e-bay for profit. They are foregoing profit and incurring additional responsibility and effort on our behalf – that is exactly what a favor is.
    I can only speak for myself, but I am certain much thanks is owed to the sellers for doing us this huge FAVOR, to JackDaddy for his organizational efforts and to MET for providing the forum.
    THANK YOU!!

  114. Indykjt

    I agree with the sentiment that this is indeed a favor. Yes, it’s involving compensation, but obviously not solely for profit. The compensation is for the extra effort and expense associated with obtaining these for people that wouldn’t otherwise have access to these at a reasonable price.

    I also again want to thank all of those involved, buyers, organizers, etc., as this is a HUGE FAVOR to me… and to me not the same at all as a marketplace like ebay.

    THANK YOU!

  115. Mr. T

    I agree that the buyers are doing those of us who cannot go a favor. So we pay a little more than the $15. Think about plane tickets, GAS costs, admission, time, etc. In the end you will have your very own LSM sitting on your shelf in prominent view while others are hoping to get one after the fact and paying some serious $ (maybe even hundreds) on ebay….. Isn’t LSM a limited run??

    Shoulda, coulda, woulda, bought the SOS (sigh!)

  116. Greg

    Jackdaddy2008 and Met,

    I know I’m way late to the dance but can you also add me to the list (gbill393@yahoo.com).

  117. Terri

    Thank you everyone. I am not trying to get praise. I just do not like to see someone’s efforts to help judged or criticized. Subject closed.

    Now lets talk about fun stuff again. I cannot wait to be standing in line to buy these. I want them in my hot little hands. The wait is driving me crazy. I am like a kid waiting for the candy store to open.

  118. georgehp

    Terri you should take a picture with the wall of LSM…

    Can’t wait to get mine!

  119. jackdaddy2008

    Using additional information posted in date order and email sent to me, I am glad to provide the latest update. The list is sitting strong at 80. I would envisage everyone being able to get one. Hopefully the buyers might club together on the day along with metroxing to buy 100 of the damn things to meet demand?

    It would appear that at time of posting, ‘Nascaranbroncosfan’ has initially agreed to sell 23 LSMs to 16 sellers. I have named the ones I can identify in this update, but 3 of his sellers I do not recognise as twoaday users yet. I was updated by him on the 29th, so respect this may have changed slightly since.

    Best news is that one of our initial sellers – disneycarsfan406 = carlover1902@msn.com has returned to offer help for those looking to bag an LSM. I recommend those of you determined to get one get in touch asap.

    Still no word from ‘Selling4nolan’.

    So, here is the up to date list –

    I am gong to be offline for a week. I did not want people to think I disappeared. Just going to a family reunion in New Jersey. Only three weeks till Comic Con!!!

  124. nascarnbroncosfans

    Terri: I agree
    (Terri

    LTZ, you did not hire us, we offered. That is a favor whether you pay for it or not. Did people offer to do something for you that you are not able to do for yourself? Yes. That is a favor. Please respect that or kindly refuse the offer.)

    I am driving 16+ hours one way and hotel and 16hrs back. i think that deserves some costs offset.

    Lastly, for those that have prepaid on my list and others that are not on anyones list, The paypal overages will be credited to bubble wrap, tape, gas to the postoffices, carrying them around, loading unloading them at the house, postoffice, printer ink for lables, and simply, GAS. I am a collectors’ collector and will tkae care of them as I would want my own to be shipped.

  125. nascarnbroncosfans

    Megaheat, if that CSOS is still available i need one asap. thanks
    nascarnbroncosfans@msn.com

  126. nascarnbroncosfans

    gbill393@yahoo.com…. i will take your order if no one else has

    nascarnbroncosfans@msn.com

  127. LTZ

    nascarnbroncosfans – I didn’t realize we were helping to pay for your trip; I understood all the sellers were already going anyways. If I offered to resell 20 here I could have paid for the trip with the extra money, but then you guys would be doing me a favor. Whatever. MET – if you’re going to delete this post too at least delete some of the others so it doesn’t look so one-sided.

  128. ChrisD

    Nascarnbroncosfans is getting mine. I paid him around $40. That is about a $20 profit per car. If you times that by $20 it comes out to be $400.

    I can’t drive to work and back for $400 anymore, well enough go to San Diego, stay at a hotel, and pay admission. Come on, this is a huge favor by all these folks.

    I know it’s been said, LTZ, but if you don’t see it that way please just take a pass. I’m not sure why you are so intent to make a point that these guys are making money. It’s mimimal. And I think most of us really appreciate them.

  129. LTZ

    ChrisD

    I’m not sure why I’m so intent on this either. I have this disease where I feel like I need to ‘fix’ something when I see that it’s wrong. I’m more than happy to stop talking about it because I’m starting to feel like jerk raining on the parade. Now I just feel like I need to respond to the nonsensical responses to my posts (not that yours is one of them, it’s not – I’m trying to finalize this). I managed to get one on ebay for less than I did here, so I’m fine.

  130. jackdaddy2008

    I was very happy to get mine for $40 from Monica, and if she need more cash, I will be happy to send her it to make sure she makes something.

    To recap, there are only 5000 of these.

    There were 10000 blu ray mcqueens.

    Blu ray mcqueen sold for a minimum of $30, but gets as much as Β£100 now.

    Shipping for my LSM will be about $15 with insurance, maybe more, plus packing, Monicas time, gas, ticket.

    These will not be in the shops, and come in an exclusive case.

    In fact, I am gonna give Monica $50 anyway.

  131. LUCA

    i agree with LTZ…………….

  132. jackdaddy2008

    I respect that LUCA, but I struggle to understand why you are quibbling over this?

    The SOS set sold for 3 times its retail value online by its makers.

    An American event exclusive is being offered to you for 5 times the retail value we pay for a single 1.55, and comes with a rarer nice looking case.

    I think its a steal, and am grateful we have good people around to help.

    Each to their own though mate.

    No offence intended.

  133. ChrisD

    LTZ/LUCA, I tend to think that playing the devil’s advocate always keeps a good balance. So I don’t fault you for expressing your opinion at all.

    LTZ, I’m glad you were able to find one for yourself at price you are comfortable with. Ultimately, most of us are into this because we love it, not to make money.

    For me, I’m grateful to the three people on here that gave me an alternative to going to San Diego myself or waiting for eBay. It seemed more than reasonable to me and so I jumped on it.

    I agree with JackDaddy, in that, come one month from right now, that $40 I spent will seem like a genius move when they are going on eBay for $150 or whatever. Obviously, if you paid less than me, you’ll look even smarter.

  134. collector by marriage

    I’d like to add my name to the list if still possible….email me…thanks

    suzied75@aol.com

  135. nascarnbroncosfans

    LTZ, ChrisD…. I saw the need here on the group. I decided to go in the hopes that I could help. I havent had a vacation in a year and wanted to lend a hand and help. I have no vacation time to compensate for the weekdays off and thanks to everyoone who has pre-paid. Thanks to jackdaddy for helping me and the other sellers. FIRST and FOREMOST… Shipping costs will BE EXACT, most everyone has some “credits” coming from the paypals that have been paid. If I send an invoice for 12.00 shipping thats what it will be an invoice for 12.00. I wasnt going to post this, but saving it for a possible suprise for the paid buyers, but offer them ANOTHER LSMcQ at a reduced rate, IF I get more than I need to fulfill the standing orders. I will go back through the list and send ONE email each buyer and if they say no its who evers next and so on. Hope that brightens some peoples day. Again, saw the need and “stepped up to the plate”.

    Collector by Marriage, If no one takes your order I will.

  136. Materlover

    Terri, enjoy the Jersey shore and the family reunion

  137. gerbil279

    I dont envy you that drive nascarnbroncos, I did SLC to Sacremento in a day and I went through 2 heavy snowstorms ( having driven up from Denver the previous day – great road trip from when I was younger….7000 miles in 3 weeks ) . I think its a great deal and if postage is more, I am more than happy to pay that and your paypal costs. Why should you be out of pocket. I’ve been told that postage will be whatever the postage is, no more. You cant get fairer than that.

  138. nascarnbroncosfans

    I used to drive for a living and SLC to L.A, San Diego is a cakewalk.

    gerbil279, and TIA to others, for your support.

  139. gerbil279

    I15 here you come ! hopefully you’ll have cruise control, something my Texas car lacked all those years ago

  140. metroxing

    SEE ABOVE POST FOR CLOSING OF SELLING DISCUSSION. If you have anything else to say, send an email to whomever you want to have a discussion with – I’m NOT interested here. Don’t bother writing it here. As noted, discussion portion CLOSED on that sub-subject. You want to discuss anything else about LS McQ, be my guest.

  141. Mr. T

    Ya know, I read the above posts and told myself I would not get involved, so I am just going to add my two cents.

    When I first got involved in this community it was an exceptionally positive place to be. We share anticipation, successes, and even frustrations (with Mattel and our favorite retailers) – I am siding with Matt on this one – this has gotten way out of hand. If there is an issue that you have, it is best taken up with that individual – putting it out into the public is just inviting trouble. It creates a ripple effect.

    It is no one’s business what you pay for something or how you acquired it (unless it is ebay of course) unless you want it known – if like you got a great deal or something…. If you want something bad enough go and get it, but don’t create the ill feeling and negative vibes for the rest of us. As Rodney and Big Weld said from Robots “see a need fill a need.” Sure I would like to pay the $15 but I don’t have the means to get there myself, I want it so I will pay extra for it. If you don’t want to pay the extra, a ‘No Thanks’ will suffice – and then you move on. If you can get it for a better price then give y0urself a pat on the back – more money to buy more cars.

    I am going to guess that this particular forum was created for those of us who are addicted to those crazy pieces of metal and plastic to connect with others who are just as crazy – if not more so. Fillmore’s idea of ‘I am feeling a whole lotta love here’ should be the ruling here. Amazing how much emotion can be brought out from a bit of metal and plastic.

    Need to bring the love back! Ok……I’m done.

  142. Mr. T

    Sorry about the above rant – it makes no sense now….. I posted one minute after you Met…..

    (MET: Who am to argue with a Ferrari named Mr. T? πŸ˜‰ )

  143. jackdaddy2008

    Did I miss something juicy?

    What happened?

    Did someone get murdered?

  144. Monica

    Hey guys, I am back. We had our twins’ birthday party and tons of family in town for the week. That didn’t stop me from trolling for Cars of course, but my computer is in the guest room and I wasn’t at work, so no interenet access for me. Still nothin’ in the Way of Van or Luke that I can find down here in San Diego.

    Whew, looks like I missed alot.

    Megaheat, say it ain’t so! If you are not collecting, then you won’t be posting here and we will all miss your Cars poetry.

  145. Adrian

    Hi to everyone, i havent been online for a few days as my son Theo was born on monday, i dont know if i have been contacted through my e-mail address turbo-psychosis@blueyonder as once again that pc broke down, if possible could you let me know who,s buying list i,m on/ who i need to pay etc. via the wifes e-mail pinkypie@blueyonder.co.uk i will check my e-bay messages now many thanks to all involved, so tired i dont know whether i,m coming or going !!
    Adrian

  146. Adrian

    Hi Just e-mailed Nascarbroncosfans to explain i would still like one and that i dont want to end up on 2 or more buyers list so as to NOT take anyones place by accidentally ordering more than one. i hope i am making sort of sense ??
    Adrian

  147. nascarnbroncosfans

    Adrian, sent you a paypalinvoice. thanks

  148. Dean

    Sheesh people, stop paying for someones GAS AND TRIP AND ROOM! These are now closing on ebay for $16.50 and $20.50!

    (MET: After the last minute sniping, the cheapest closing auction with shipping is $33.00 USD (no Paypal) and the most expensive at $56 with shipping … with most falling in the $46 to $50 range – the $159 BUY IT NOW went without selling …).

  149. LUCA

    Look at this item on Ebay 290243493828!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  150. nascarnbroncosfans

    its from the Hk couple, they are a tic different than the SDCC versions

  151. nascarnbroncosfans

    lmao…

    HK couple has sold some and I have two of them coming. They are numbered 0000 of 4678 or something like that. NOT 5000. Rumor is they were employee comps or something.

  152. jackdaddy2008

    I think he is a manufacturing supervisor at the factory.

    I would say they are legit, these were probably shipped a while ago, meaning a good 50 – 100 might have been held back for an employee or someone, just like every other rare Car released.

  153. BMW

    Hi everyone,
    FYI a prototype of LS MQ is going for over 100. on ebay right now. Claims its from the factory, not a custom. Its in the UK.

  154. BMW

    Nascarbroncofan,
    How are they different? Looks the same to me.

    Anyone know if these definitely going to be numbered?
    From the pictures on ebay looks like a holographic sticker on the bottom.

  155. LUCA

    In fact there are not different..they come from Honk Kong’s factory,directly.this is what seller said to me one minute ago!!!

  156. nascarnbroncosfans

    Jackdaddy:

    They were shipped over a month ago.

  157. nascarnbroncosfans

    OFFICIAL report of LSM from HK Couple
    THEY ARE different, different numbering, I was told by the HK over a month ago 6-01-08, and JUST NOW…that ALL of theirs will be 0000 of 4768. NOT 5000. ALL 0000. I know that for a fact since I and a friend of mine and thats how our copies are numbered, supposedly the SDCC will be done differently, sequentially numbered. Mine is caught in holiday mail otherwise I would post a pic

    From HK couple: yes , my LSMQ is not rightly numbered , the laser label doesn’t show the right sequence number as the original release. Ours are 0000 of 4768 or something like that. Pre-production approval samples.

  158. MCL Sydney

    Terri can you please kindly email me ASAP loefti@bigblue.net.au thx πŸ™‚

  159. luis (portofino123)

    Hi everyone,
    i’m selling the LSMQ now on E-bay (i think the only seller of LSMQ on e-bay in the world). You know and I confirm that this model has the number series (??) 0000 / 4768 and not 4768 of 5000! Before your notes – in particolary the information of nascarnbroncosfans- i thought to have a really exclusive n. 2 LSMQ after …. i understand to have only …. n.2 prototipe!! …. well it’s not bad for my collections…. and i have informed my potential buyer collectors friends about the news …. PS Original or protipe it’s a beautiful model…. and now i’m waiting for the “real LSMQ” n.1 to n. 5.000in San Diego at the end of july……. but according you will’be really only 5.000?? Ciao . Luis
    ps2 Sorry for my english πŸ™‚

    (MET: Well, 5,000 official ones and you’re right – that does not mean Mattel will be selling 5,000 at the show – just that a total of 5,000 was the production run).

    I now have my 2 copies of this LSMcQ Pre-production approval samples. I will bubble wrap my 2 copies of this LSMcQ Pre-production approval samples for weight and distance examples. I will be spending my day off Saturday, July 12, 2008 getting everyones addresses printed out the night before and get United States Post Office shipping quotes.

    Review: Yes they have the number 0000/4768 on the bottom of the black base. VERY VERY nice. They are not as large as I thought but then again not tiny either. Very very nice display. Impressive clear rising stand holding the LSMcQ. Screwed into the bottom of the black base. (good idea) It is a Randsberg style paint job. It is really nice. It comes in a printed box with Mattel information and UPC code.
    This fits VERY tightly in the white box so there might be light “rubbing” on the top of the clear display lids. I think this will be unavoidable. No room to add any bubble wrap in the box.

    If anyone wants pictures of this box and how it fits inside, or under the base sticker information, I will be glad to send you some pics.

    Just hit SuperWM today…. They had a TON of 3pks on an endcap – Dirt Track, Piston Cup, Dinoco Dream, and The Race Officials pack (blimp, Tom, and Tow)

    My question…. I picked up the Officials pack because the label under the blimp says ‘new model’??? Took it home and compared it to the one I have and do not see any visible difference – anyone know what that might be about???

  164. Monica

    Thanks for the photos nascarnbroncosfan! Looks awesome, can hardly wait to get my hands on it!

    To all the buyers on my list, I am all set to ship. I have all the packing slips and labels printed and am collecting boxes and bubblewrap. It is my goal to pick up the LSLM’s on preview night and ship them out on Friday so I can spend Saturday just cruising the convention with my boys (kids get in free with a paid adult!) and checking out all the fun stuff.

  165. MarkUK

    Previously it was released as a WM exclusive, so technically it is a “new” model as a general release. For WM to bill it as such though is stretching it.

    (MET: Blimp available as:

    WM Card
    WM Card (New)
    Value Pack Box Set (Sam’s Club)
    WOC Card
    WOC Card (New)

    Other than these 5 cards & box sets which are nothing like the 3-pack Gift Pack, Al Oft Blimp is new in the thinnest slice of marketing pie!)

  166. Mr. T

    Thanks for the info – I don’t need two of them so I will add the three pack to my girls’ play set. Go figure……. Put the word ‘new model’ on it and I jump the gun. I figured I’d get it, as it usually turns out – If I decide to leave it, research it, and get it later – POOF! it is gone! Lesson learned I suppose.

  167. Mr. T

    Nascarnbroncos ——- SWEEEEEEET pics! I am anxiously awaiting mine!!!!

  168. Doug

    As you might know, I live in San Diego. Now in my opinion, the comic-con is completely wacky, but I might go just because of all the awesome Cars stuff!

  169. gerbil279-UK

    great pictures nascarnbroncosfan…. can’t wait……hope you get them

  170. nascarnbroncosfans

    Doug, we can use some hot coffee and cinnamon rolls…giggle

  171. nascarnbroncosfans

    3 Pre production LSMcQueens were just listed.

    Not by me though.

    Item number: 330251023859

  172. nascarnbroncosfans

    Met, Monica, Gerbil, Mr T and jackdaddy, everyone who has bought one from me or other people DO NOT WAIT.

    These are very very very well done.

    Pictures do NOT do these justice.

    should I post a video?…. thanks everyone.

  173. nascarnbroncosfans

    opps, should have said for those that HAVE NOT bought one of the LSMcQ’s from any of us, Do NOT wait. They are gorgeous.

  174. jackdaddy2008

    For you benefit sydney

  175. nhuynh85

    I’m sorry I have not been on for awhile…seems like I’ve missed a lot…but just wondering…are we prepaying for the LSLM or waiting until it is actually bought by the sellers first…it seems like some sellers are already collecting the money

    From e-bay italy:

    Cars DISNEY Lightning Storm McQueen LSMQ NEW ! in box ! Numero oggetto: 290243493828

    Il tuo oggetto Γ¨ stato venduto (sold) per EUR 165,00!

  177. Doug

    I found myself a Van today (I have 2 sons that always get the cars before me!) Because I live in San Diego, I might go to the Comic-con (despite all the weirdos!) and get a case with Kathy, because there will be one for each of us. I’d like a LS McQueen too, but then my sons would both want one, and I can’t afford that. Still looks cool though!

    (MET: I’ll be the guy at the show naked covered in Disney Pixar CARS … but I would never use my 12-back desert card CARS, that would really be weird. I saw that guy last year – what a freak … πŸ™‚ ).

  178. Monica

    Doug, dude, where’d you find the Vans in San Diego? I been lookin’ everywhere.

  179. Doug

    On Sundays, try the Target in Poway. I’ve found 3 Vans there and 2 Lukes.

  180. Monica

    Thanks!

    I am checking out KB in UTC tomorrow. They get their shipments on Wednesdays.

  181. Are they on case K? And by the way, I only need Flea and Flik and Luke to fill my collection(as of now). I’m looking forward to seeing a Kathy Copter and eventually a Leroy Traffik.

  182. Snappyjoker

    Update for the U.K.

    I have just got the new UK promotion collecters car from mattel #54 Faux Wheel Drive comes in clear bag with the name of car on it!

  183. Monica

    Hard to tell Doug. I was there today and they have a TON of Cars on the pegs there, so it’s hard to tell what came in the last shipment. The employees are kind of clueless. They have everything that’s out now except for Van and Luke and some of the rarer MM’s.

  184. EM

    What is the UK FWD #54 promotion?

  185. Nascarnbroncosfans

    nhuynh85 I can take your order for the LSMcQ if you still want one.

    email is:
    nascarnbroncosfans@msn.com

  186. Nascarnbroncosfans

  188. Snappyjoker

    MET, Gary, EM & Nascarnbroncosfans

    Last year there was a promotion for a collecters car from mattel, you had to buy 6 CARS that had the paper codes on.
    Then you go to http://www.carstoys.co.uk/ put the 6 codes on to get Vinyl Toupee

    They did run out of the cars so I was told they will send me out the new car when they get it!
    so this is the new UK promotion collecters car from mattel #54 Faux Wheel Drive.

    As far as I know the promotion as not started & that it is limited to one per household, told by mattel!

    I want to get more but not if I have to buy six CARS again, I have all the cars out so far.

  189. Nascarnbroncosfans

    Okay…LSM Shipping update:

    uhhh what happened to all of the comments?

  193. nascarnbroncosfans

    Wow that was weird, all of the comments were gone….

    jackdaddy2008

    Why do you think I am at number 30 on this list??

    I did get my LSM on the very first ebay listing &
    I was 9 on that listing! Anyway msully1 I hope will be working of her ebay listing as I was one of the first to buy!

  195. Jen

    Can you email me willing to pay via paypal for a car!!!
    jenlemoine4@aol.com!!!
    Please son’s birthday is coming up & I want to give him new cars!!

    (MET: Jen & anyone else, the buying-selling list is HERE).

  196. Monica

    Hey snappyjoker,

    The list arose after I had already completed my two listings on ebay and sold the amount of cars I was willing to. So even though you are technically #30 on the list, you have already bought from me and will be receiving your LSLM from me :), no worries.

    Monica/msully

  197. nascarnbroncosfans

    am here at the SDCC internet up an running… down to the last 50 minutes of waiting for preview night to open…..been here for 4 hours as it is…

  198. MattDaddy

    To nascarnbroncosfans, and to everyone buying LSMcQueens for the rest of us, you’re awesome!! Thanks so much for doing this!!
