        ^ Well that's a few months too late! Would have been nice if a new Tokyo Mater Toon would get released in the line. I'd love to see Tansou or Sanban.

        However, it's still nice that Ito San finally made a reappearance. I'll be looking out for him but will probably buy no more than one.

                      Kabuto with flames is in the new Toon 3 pack that is just turning up at Walmart... also includes Kabuto Ninja and Cho.

                      Look for pictures in the near future.

                              Anyone care if I resurrect this thread? I figured I may as well dump all these images in one place since I've been searching Amazon for almost a year at this point.

                              One more because why not. Except I think this one was actually released?? Maybe?

                                Thanks for bumping up this thread, Fillmore1234... you show some interesting Cars items... a few were released but some of them were supposed to be re-released.

                                We saw Security Finn McMissile first in a 2 pack and then as a single.
                                I though Pit Crew Mater was re-released after being a Kmart exclusive Cars single.
                                Is that the Raoul Caroule with Metallic Finish? It was released outside of the US - I got several from friends in Canada
                                Brent Mustangberger with headset...

                                Pit Row Race off Launchers - announced... prototypes shown at the Peterson in LA... but never released... At one time I wanted all 36... but since I have a complete set thanks to 17 custom launchers by GotFrank I won't buy any more... View Zeen, Bumper Save, Lil Torquey Pistons, and Sidewall Shine were released as Lightyear Launchers... and with the release of Tach O Mint and Revolting (Davey Apex), there isn't much reason for many of us to buy those launchers.

                                I remember seeing the picture showing Security Finn and the blue Pacer... but that's as far as it went.

                                I have the launcher shown in the last picture with Francesco... it came from a friend in Asia... my guess is that the launcher was made but retailers canceled orders due to being stuck with non-selling inventory... it seems Mattel couldn't move away from Cars2 labeled products quickly enough.
