    No Kmart 10 Cars Collector event in June 2013

    This morning I learned from one of my friends, Barbara (arbara on ctt) that there would be no June Kmart Cars Collector event... I waited for her to post before announcing it here... you can see arbara's original post at:

    http://carsthetoys.yuku.com/topic/20...or-Event-New-D

    No single day Cars event, but they are going to try month long sales - they'll need to get new stock in order to have products we want to buy... I saw 10 Deluxe Submarine Finn McMissile at $6 each today.

    New Kmart Deluxe exclusive Cars will be appearing in June - Met posted on TakeFiveADay that it was going to be just Ivan (in a case of 12) and that they weren't going to have Muggsy Liftsome and Epilogue John Lassetire:

    Kmart does plan to run a Cars Collector Event in October.

    I've been to every Kmart Cars Collector Event... I've written articles:
    History of the Kmart Cars Collector Event:

    History of the Kmart Cars2 Collector Event:
    http://www.pixarcarsdiecast.com/foru...llector-Events

    Attendance has dwindled - for 5 of the last 6 events I've been the only one at the store I go to first... case assortments left a little to be desired... Most stores have only gotten 1 master carton (4 cases) at the last 3 events... I've gone to stores 2 to 3 hours after the event where I found all 96 Cars on tables, untouched... the silver racers have not been as popular as the new Cars during the last few events... as others have mentioned, many stores have not even put up the store poster, and the ads in the Kmart newspaper insert have been quite small and hard to find.

    A business has to give its customers what they want... if you don't, the customers go elsewhere... and Kmart has closed many stores in the last 3 years... the 2nd store on my Kmart Cars event route just closed a couple months ago.

    I was looking forward to the June event... I'll probably go into a store during the month to check it out... but here's a photo from the Kmart store I went to today:



    How committed can Kmart be to Cars when this is the entire area for Cars?

    We'll let you know more as we find out more.

    Kind of sad. I've taken my kids to every Kmart day since #4. During #8 and #9, the Cars sold pretty good. I guess that was because the stores ordered less stock. Oh well, maybe we will get some good stuff in October. Might a "Planes" Collector's event...

    I was really looking forward to going this year in June. But the quantity of the Kmart #9 cars was very low...

    Hmmmm... Maybe Muggsy and Epilogue John will still appear?
    I remember cac1959 reported Muggsy do have a production stamp.
    Would be ironic that its produce and being kept in the stockyard till Timbuktu

    besides the 3 known deluxe, I am rooting for Andy Gearsdale and Sgt Highgear!!!
    Wait, how about Taco and Taia?

    lovemini is right! There will be a silver Rip.

    Might not be from Kmart though.

    I don't want to wait that long for a silver Rip Clutchgoneski... I also want a Rip Clutchgoneski with rubber tires... but you all knew that already.

    I'm glad to see that there is a silver Rip Clutchgoneski...
