Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Mini’s Playsets Coming Next (Summer 2008)

First, yes, the Screamin’ Banshee is considered a Mini Adventures vehicle …

If you look closely, Screamin’ Banshee’s front/mouth scoops up CARS (up to 5 at a time) and then expels them off to the side …

Here is a screenshot – as you can see, the Mini Adventures Screamin’ Banshee is so huge – he’s in scale to both Mini Mater & 1:55 Mater … just that you lose the “Mini CARS eating” feature …

Available at Amazon & Children’s Toy Closet.com.

There are also three new playsets coming for the Mini’s line – you’ve seen some photos at Toyfair – here are some shots without the distracting background.

And yes, Lizzie seems an odd choice to include with the Wheel Well Motel playset though somewhere the listings says Sally so the photo might be wrong.

In addition, there will be a box set of the Mini’s called “Crusin’ with Flo,” (Christmas time?):

“… contains 6 favorite Radiator Springs characters. Hang out with Mater, Lightning McQueen, Doc, Sally, Flo and Ramone all in their original decos as they get ready to roll onto more fun Mini Adventures™!”
