Thread: Missing in Action - where are they, Mattel?

  1. #21
    Brent Mustangberger with Headset (Lights & Sounds) was confirmed along with Security Guard Finn McMissile (from the Character Encyclopedia) but they were never released.
    Vladimir Trunkov with Boot was initially featured on a Mattel Cars 2 Website, but was released as a normal version instead.

    This N2O Cola Cab was never released along with Gasprin and Easy Idle.





    These pictures features the Easy Idle pitties with Crew Chief and the N2O Cola pitties before it was going to be released into Pit Crews, but was never released.







    These pictures shows Metallic Mini and Lenticular Luigi Ferrari Fan





    This is some sort of launcher, but this design is confusing!



    That's all I can find!

    I have a couple of those items... but as a long time collector I'd like to see more.

    The N2O Cola and Easy Idle Team Crew sets (3 pittys and crew chief) were actually listed for sale on the Target website for several weeks but were not available for shipping... I used to think (hope) that there were thousands of each boxed team crew set in a warehouse somewhere but when Target canceled the product line no other retailer picked it up... the 4th Easy Idle pitty, along with the Easy Idle cab led me to think that we'd see an Easy Idle Hauler/Pitty/Racer set next, but sadly that never happened either.

    Hindsight is 20-20... I wish Mattel would NOT have done a direct cutover from Cars to Cars2... I think the Cars2 toys could have been more successful if Mattel had continued with Cars distribution... so many of my friends and trading partners from 2007 to 2011 gave up on collecting because Mattel didn't finish Cars product lines that they started... Does Mattel wish they could do it over? I doubt it... they seem to be concerned with the "now" as opposed long-term future... they don't care about collectors, only the money in our wallets... if I won't spend $100 on Cars then there are 10 people who will spend $10 each... Mattel still has their $100.

    And a reminder to all... please be sure to have permission when posting photos that are not yours... and give credit to sources.

    From the 2009 Collectors Guide:



    Kori Turbowitz is released as a single in 2015.



    Timothy Twostroke was released as a single in 2014.



    High 'n' Low Ramone (Hydraulic Ramone) was released as a Cars 2 single.

    From the 2010 Collectors Guide:



    Kabuto with Flames was listed as a eBay item, but it was sold out and it never actually happened to be released again.
