Thread: Cars 2 Mattel 1:55 Diecast Singles - the current state of play

    Cars 2 Mattel 1:55 Diecast Singles - the current state of play

    Now that the Cars 2 Movie has now been released in the UK I thought I'd help out new collectors (and existing collectors) by detailing what the quantity of Mattel 1:55 cars that have been released (or due to be released) in the first seven cases are, so you know which ones you should be looking out for.

    I've listed them in ascending order to make it easier to see (the first number is the collection number of the car):

    14-Race Team Fillmore - 2 released (1.37%)
    8-Carla Veloso - 3 released (2.05%)
    10-Guido (together with #11) - 3 released (2.05%)
    11-Luigi (together with #10) - 3 released (2.05%)
    17-Miles Axelrod - 3 released (2.05%)
    19-Hydrolic Ramone - 3 released (2.05%)
    20-Nigel Gearsley - 3 released (2.05%)
    6-Professor Z - 4 released (2.74%)
    15-Race Team Sarge - 4 released (2.74%)
    12-Acer - 5 released (3.42%)
    9-Raoul Caroule - 6 released (4.11%)
    13-Grem - 6 released (4.11%)
    16-Rod Torque Redline - 6 released (4.11%)
    5-Holley Shiftwell - 7 released (4.79%)
    18-Petrov Trunkov - 7 released (4.79%)
    7-Jeff Gorvette - 8 released (5.48%)
    4-Francesco Bernoulli - 16 released (10.96%)
    1-Race Team Mater - 24 released (16.44%)
    3-Lightening McQueen with Racing Wheels - 25 released (17.12%)
    2-Finn McMissile - 32 released (21.92%)

    LMQ is definately selling better than Mater in my area as the pegs are filled with Mater and Finn, dispite there being more LMQ's in circulation.

    Hope this info helps those wondering which cars to buy.

    Great post, MrBrownstone... but I'm a little unsure about the percentages... unless you write 21,92% for what we write as 21.92% in the US.

    And if you're buying intending to open your Cars (for display or playing with), there are 2 packs and boxed sets that you can open so you don't need to buy all the singles... however, it's going to be very hard not to get duplicates due to Mattel's assortments and distribution.

    Not enough of a change to Race Team Mater from Cars 1 Mater. Cars 2 McQueen looks a lot different than Cars 1 McQueen so more people are buying him. With all the Mater varients due to come out, his sales will pick up. Bring on Sarge with headphones!

    Hi Chris, yes, it is the same. We do yuse the "." too but it was google docs that put the "," in and I glossed over it before posting. I've now fixed this.

    I agree with bobbyjack's reason why LMQ has sold more than Mater btu also think that most of the sales were made prior to the movie release so "the kids" were more LMQ fans

    Like this collectors now know how hard certain cars are to find in the wild.

    I agree with you, DaFickser...

    My grandsons are 9 and almost 9 (on 8/7)... their favorite Cars2 Car is Finn McMissile
    My granddaughter is 5 (almost 6)... her favorite Cars2 Car is Holley Shiftwell

    My favorite Cars2 Car is Brent Mustangburger... although once I get the Metallic Paint Jeff Gorvette I may have a new one.

    With the new case assortment announcements Race Team Fillmore is now the least produced car (of those produced so far) as a single... Only 2 produced out of 10 cases...
