I am trying to make a diecast case for my grandson for his room in our house!! I need these to complete the collection according to there website!!!
Yeti
Lightning McQueen - Tongue
Bob Cutlass
Dale Jr. (1 for me & 1 for Him!!!)
Fred
Darrell Cartrip
Mario Andretti
Lightyear Blimp
Dinoco Blimp
Mater - Young Version
These are all new releases of the Cars movie, but what better place than to post it here when we all go to the toys area on a regular basis!!!
Anyone that finds one please let me know, I would rather get one from here than anywhere else. Plus I have many of the older nascar cars, to trade or make a deal!!!

I haven't even seen the Dale Jr. car on Ebay yet. I may have an extra Brand New Mater laying around somewhere. I think most of the other ones haven't actually hit the stores yet and are only available from direct dealers (i.e. scalpers) on Epay.

I'll wait for them to hit the stores at a REASONABLE price. It's a shame that people will pay that much to have them first. I wonder what it feels like to pay 10 times what a car costs and then see it on the pegs for the retail price?

I wouldn't pay that price either, but if I could get that amount i'd give it up to. If you find it once, it's sure to come around again.

Why be the first to have it anyway? Never really understood that, though I was like that when me and my friends collected baseball cards. It was always nice to pull the chase cards first.

Kind of when the Cars started to show up last year & everybody was grabing the Lizzie & Sarge. Then even up till about a month ago you could still find them on the pegs before the recalls came out.
Got most of mine for the kids on sale for 2 $5. Cant see paying more then $10 for them!

Yeah the Lizzie & Sarge went for high dollars last year. Thankfully, I waited that one out, but I figured with our network I would try to get the hard to find ones for this year to keep for my GRANDSON, to finish his case I want to make for him!!!! I can guarantee that non of these cars will ever be for resell anywhere !!!! Non-The-Less EBAY!!!! I will never resell any cars I ask for on this site!!!!!!
But then again 30 years from now, I can't explain what happens to them!!!!
But until then, I can guarantee, that it will not Happen!!!
Every car is sold for retail at $3.88 in this area, plus tax!!!!
What I am trying to make for him is a solid oak case with all of the cars in it's original release, AFTER THEY FINALLY STOP RELEASING CARS!!!!
Now they are releasing Bob Cutlass, Jr, Darrell Cartrip, Mario, Lightyear Blimp, and so on!!!!
I can guarantee to anyone that will help me out, that it will not be sold on EBAY, at least not as long as I am alive!!!

These all come out overpriced for the first few months and then they are all over the shelves. I have also heard that here are some Wal-Mart exclusive cars available as well. Patience is a virtue for these. For example, Hamm was very hard to find but now it is all over the place. I would have hated to have paid $25-$30 bucks for that one. I got lucky and found a Yeti in Fl last week, but that one was commanding some big bucks early on. Now it looks like they've dropped in price as well. Give them time and soon there will be enough of them for everyone!!

Sorry, won't pay more than $5.00 for each. Most people are trying to rip people off so far that I have seen!!!

I went to a KB yesterday and they said they get their new shipments on Monday about 6 AM. About 10 AM, the "Ebay Lady" comes in and they give her what she wants and then they put the rest out on the rack, but they told me if I call before she comes in they will hold what I want for me to come get at lunchtime. Hopefully I will be able to get over there next week if they finally get the new stuff in, but so far, all I keep seeing is the same old stuff.

I am a huge Ferrari fan (Tifosi!) and it took me a while to find the Guido and Luigi set but I found them at Wal*Mart a month ago. My view on these is if I find them, great. If not, oh well. I would like to still get the Schumi Ferrari, the Jr and Andretti but I'm not going to buy them off the Bay. I have not bought a diecast off of eBay for about 3 years now. I like the hunt the most and that's what makes the hobby fun. I especially don't like to be gouged for something I may be able to find on my own eventually.
