    Disney Stores (UK) and maybe the rest of Europe, have released their five silver racers today.

    They are the five that were part of the Kmart #8 Day, back in June. The missing one is Lightning McQueen!

    The other five, from Kmart #9, will see general release, maybe out now, please report if you see them.

    The five racers are very similar to the Kmart ones, except rear of the card is standard international style!

    Photos to follow.

    They are priced at 7GBP/12EURO, but they charged me 30GBP for the set!

          More clearance priced 3 packs in Meijer this morning... While I didn't really need them, I bought them...

          Great information niftynigel... I wasn't sure I would like the silver series racers before I bought them... but I did.

          Nice find on Carla, Junior...

            that is very nice Chris...what 3 packs are they? (2 singles and 1 deluxe?). Did any of those packs come with an exclusive vehicle?

            I really enjoy the silver racers as well. I do hope to eventually snag a set of them from someone somwhere in the coming months or so.

              Double Decker Bus/Race Team Mater/Lightning McQueen with racing wheels.
              Holley Shiftwell with wings/Trunkov (may be called different things)/Acer
              Submarine Finn McMissile/Grem/Professor Z

                    They are the Kmart Mattel ones from Kmart #8 Day. Adapted slightly for the international market. The names are on the front in the silver panel. The rear of the cards are standard international fayre, with only the single name on each of the five so far.

                    What about Lightning (Flash) McQueen)!?

                      Picked up MaterHawk & Hawk McQueen from Big W today. Looks like they might be making way for some new stock - they have reduced all their diecasts to $4.92 (which is pretty much half the price we generally pay!). Also picked up a couple of Officer Murakarmi on special for $7.00 at my local Woolworths Supermarket too. Good day for bargains! Shame I didnt need any of the $4.92 Cars...

                        I actually found something today at a Walmart. The cars 2 version of Mack Hauler (they also had Wally, but he looked exactly like the other releases)
