  • Has the Disney Planes diecast line taken its final flight ?

    Hey folks, at one point many moons ago I was really looking forward to seeing some of the expanded Cars universe vehicles from the Planes film being released. I picked up the coaches, Linus lines and Trudy trailway, then Harvey and Winnie plus the fire engines but it appears some models didn’t make it to market. Has the Planes diecast line now fininshed? It’s been a year or more since I last bought a Planes model and the last was in a discount store. Never saw this model release and wondered if I ever will?

    Yes, I'm sorry, but it appears that the Planes line is completely dead, as is the franchise.

      I concur, the Planes line is kaput.

        Sadly, that is the way it seems. Very unfortunate, the Planes line of die-casts had some really interesting land-based vehicles in various forms - eg. giant sized Ryker, Ted Yale with luggage cart, Winnie & Harvey, coaches, even the Smokejumpers. They enhance the variety of my Cars die-cast collection, makes it more visually interesting. My last purchase off Amazon was Zed Custard the doughnut truck - love the design, colours etc never saw it at general retail though. Was really looking forward to the new stuff supposedly coming out including the muscle car, still hoping they will be released some day....

          I have very few Planes items in my collection. But Zed was a must! Sheriff, Mike & D.D. need doughnuts.

              While I'd originally heard that Planes 3 was "filmed" at the same time the Planes Fire and Rescue was filmed, there's been no mention of it for quite a while... I figured I was done with my Planes collection... but a month ago a friend in another country was able to offer me 4 Planes I didn't have and figured I would not get:

              Tango
              Croix Cartwright
              Gregory Piper
              Super Chase Midnight Dusty

              I paid more than I would have if I'd been able to get them in the US... but I have them... I'll try to add photos one of these days... per rpag, the Super Chase Midnight Dusty does glow in the dark.

                Here is a picture showing my 4 most recent Planes additions:



                Enjoy!

                I too wish they'd release more of the diecasts as well as the 3rd movie.
