There’s a new series of toys from the folks at Disney and Pixar, bridging the gap between the hugely successful 2006 film and its upcoming sequel. Of all the Pixar films, it seems that Cars’ Hot Wheels style merchandising has been the most successful. From individual vehicles to playsets and race courses, these items fly off the shelves whenever we get a shipment.
The latest collection is the Cars “Lenticular Eyes” series, featuring eyes that look around and give the figure even more life than the clever, film-loyal designs generally allow.
The characters available in this group include several variations of Lightning McQueen, Hudson Hornet, Lightning Ramon, Sarge, Fillmore, The King, DJ (Chase), Leak Less and more!
They join the growing collection of Disney/Pixar Cars figures we’ve got over at CmdStore. If you’re a fan of the film, be sure to check ‘em out!
Meanwhile, in other Cars news, a blind item recently appeared at The Orlando Sentinel which an interesting question.
Just got off the phone with a delightful British character actress who was “running late. I was just doing ADR (voice over) work for Cars 2.”
She’s in a couple of films now making the rounds. And we don’t know exactly what vehicle she’ll play in Pixar’s Cars sequel.
But she strikes me as a Mini Cooper sort of girl. Not Aston Martin or Jaguar or Land Rover.
Anybody care to hazard a guess?
