    Looking at the lead post, we now know:

    Kori Turbowitz: released as a single on 2015 cardback.
    Timothy Twostroke: released as a single on 2015 cardback.

    Kabuto with flames: included in a Walmart exclusive 3 pack.

    Anyone care if I resurrect this thread? I figured I may as well dump all these images in one place since I've been searching Amazon for almost a year at this point.














    One more because why not. Except I think this one was actually released?? Maybe?

    Thanks for bumping up this thread, Fillmore1234... you show some interesting Cars items... a few were released but some of them were supposed to be re-released.

    We saw Security Finn McMissile first in a 2 pack and then as a single.
    I though Pit Crew Mater was re-released after being a Kmart exclusive Cars single.
    Is that the Raoul Caroule with Metallic Finish? It was released outside of the US - I got several from friends in Canada
    Brent Mustangberger with headset...

    Pit Row Race off Launchers - announced... prototypes shown at the Peterson in LA... but never released... At one time I wanted all 36... but since I have a complete set thanks to 17 custom launchers by GotFrank I won't buy any more... View Zeen, Bumper Save, Lil Torquey Pistons, and Sidewall Shine were released as Lightyear Launchers... and with the release of Tach O Mint and Revolting (Davey Apex), there isn't much reason for many of us to buy those launchers.

    I remember seeing the picture showing Security Finn and the blue Pacer... but that's as far as it went.

    I have the launcher shown in the last picture with Francesco... it came from a friend in Asia... my guess is that the launcher was made but retailers canceled orders due to being stuck with non-selling inventory... it seems Mattel couldn't move away from Cars2 labeled products quickly enough.

    According to a new post today from Met on TakeFiveADay, the Shiny Wax Hauler is on the list of Walmart exclusive haulers... you can read about it here:

    http://www.takefiveaday.com/2016/12/...ny-wax-hauler/

    Years ago Shiny Wax Hauler was listed on the Toys R US website and in stores... a friend ordered 4 and had them shipped to me... 4 Sidewall Shine arrived... I went to a Toys R US in northern Kentucky... they had 6 in stock... and brought out... 6 Sidewall Shine haulers... I'd like to add the Shiny Wax hauler to my collection.

    And speaking of where are they, Mattel... I found this photo on an eBay listing today - it's part of the back of the box of the Ben Crankleshaft hauler:



    I'd love to add Vitoline and Gasprin haulers to may collection - the real haulers and not the backdoor knock-off versions.
