    Re: Mattel's Cars - discussion

    I was wondering something. The new Haulers line is much smaller than the original Mack Playset. Which one is the more accurate scale? My gut tells me that the initial Mack is the proper scale... but with everything else coming out being the smaller scale, it might not matter and I'll have to go with what they give me. Anyone know?



    And on the toy haul, I found these two at Wal-Mart today:







    I have not opened them because of my shocking discovery at the check out. I was charged $10 each for these guys. If that's the real price and not a mistake, these are going right back to the store.

    Re: Mattel's Cars - discussion

    The third car in the Launch series is VITOLINE (a green car). So yah, I think I'll need to find all of them on sale.

    It is ridiculous though.. these used to be $6. How can Wal-mart up them by $4???

    Both Mattel and Hasbro experienced slow sales during the holidays and said they would raise their prices in 2009. It was in a business news clip I saw a couple of weeks ago.

    Re: Mattel's Cars - discussion

    None of my fellow posters at carsthetoys.com have said anything about the Launchers being $10 though that could be because they don't mind the price hike at all.

    I finally found and bought a Dinoco Hauler though those have gone up in price at Target. The past few weeks when the shelves were empty, the price tag read 12.99 but now it's $14 something. I also got the Chick Hicks semi in the mega line for $5.99.

    On Friday, I found Impound DJ, which was a good find for me. I'm still looking for Dustin Mellows in the Mega collection. And a bunch of other regular Cars cars... like that darn Pizza Planet truck.....

    It's kinda a family thing... we open them all though. We do collect them, and we have alot of them (I think we have all of them from the original line) except lately my local Wal-Mart and Target haven't had anything new, except the Impound DJ I found.

    They finally released Elvis? lately our selection has been really bad around here. I haven't bought any Cars for a while now, mainly because of my job situation.

    After what seemed like weeks and weeks of searching, I finally found a Dustin Mellows today but only because I was at Target at opening.

    Re: Mattel's Cars - discussion

    I picked up another Impound Wingo from TRU along with an Octane Gain hauler. Also got Andrea from WM.

    I have a feeling I'll never see the Walmart hauler which is okay because I wasn't too keen on it. Still, I want some reassurance that my local WM's get the exclusives in which at least for Star Wars, they don't always.

    Sweet! I hope to find impound wingo one of these days. I think it's the only one I need currently.
