    Coming Soon: the Return of the Kmart Cars 3 Collector event

    Coming soon... the return of the Kmart Cars 3 Collector event:



    Thanks to KK&PP_Cars for the photo and the information.

    This shows that for online orders (starting June 10) that if you buy a Cars 12 pack you can get a special edition Lightning McQueen... but on the Mattel site it mentions that there is a $3.50 handling fee per Car.

    Another ad shows buy 5 singles in store get a free McQueen in the mail during the store event on June 17:


    Are there 2 variations of this promo? I used to think the Kmart Cars Collector events were great... but of the 20 stores I'd regularly attend (12 on Saturday and 8 the next day looking for leftovers) only 2 remain open... If I go to Indianapolis there are 2 remaining Kmart stores (out of 10)... only 1 remains in Dayton... but I might as well stick around and go to the local store.

    And we're not sure if there is a limit of 5 or 10 McQueen per household address... a 12 pack is probably going to cost $50 and it better have several unreleased Cars 3 Cars... 5 singles will probably cost around $20... I'd like to see what the store exclusive is... for the in-store they are requiring us to mail in the cardback (but not the blister).

    Posted by Met today on Take5ADay:

    The special McQueen is a Precision Series Cars 3 Lightning McQueen.

    We still don't know what Cars are in the 12 pack - it is supposed to go on sale tomorrow.

    We still don't know what Cars are going to be in the Kmart case but I suspect it's a case K with first to market (first releases) of Cars 3 Tow Cap and Lil Torquey Pistons among others.

    I'll add more as I know more.

    Update: Fillmore1234 thinks that it could be a Precision Series Fabulous Lightning McQueen - that would be much better...

    To quote Ferris, "worst promo ever"

    Here are the online promo details... 12 Cars singles for $59.88 which is $4.99 each... you will receive:

    1 Lightning McQueen
    1 Mater
    1 of either Tow Cap or Lil Torquey Pistons (their choice)
    9 random Cars

    We still have not seen a picture of the mail in promo McQueen.

    If I could order 6 each of the 2 new Cars (Lil Torquey Pistons and Tow Cap) I'd pay $4.99 each for them... but for what they are going to send there is no way I'm going to do that... guess I will take my chances at the store on June 17th.

    What an awful event, only 2 new cars? I know I'll go there and not end up with either new car and therefore have nothing to get

    It seemed so strange for me to only go to 1 store today, but so many of the stores that I have been to for previous Cars collector events have closed... I'd make it an all day event and go to 8 to 12 stores the first day and another 6 to 8 the next day.

    Reports of 2 different cases at stores... Ours had DXV29-9997 - the contents were Case 9997 contents Kmart case...
    5 Cars 3 Lightning McQueen
    2 Mater
    1 Jack DePost
    1 Ralph Carlow
    1 Parker Brakeston
    1 Dud Throttleman
    1 Rex Revlar
    1 Tex Dinoco
    1 Fillmore
    1 Sally
    1 Lightning McQueen as Chester Whipplefilter
    1 Cruz Ramirez
    1 Dinoco Cruz Ramirez
    1 Chick Hicks with headset
    1 Brick Yardley
    1 Tim Treadless
    1 Danny Swervez
    1 Jackson Storm
    1 Bobby Swift



    And I did not even ask about the store poster... not an exciting poster in my opinion.

    I basically forgot this was even happening, so I plan on swinging by my Kmart and hoping they still have DePost and Carlow. I wouldn't be shocked if no one went on Saturday. Not interested in the promo, whatever McQueen it is I will be able to get somewhere else. If it is precision series, that's not even something I'm interested in. Not going to buy 3 extra cars I don't need and mail away just to gamble on it
