Cars: Latest Wave of 2013 Movie Moments 2-Packs

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'm thankful for SO many things...and it's no surprise that Pixar is one of them!

Most importantly, I'm thankful for my family and my beautiful wife Brita. This morning we were excited to exchange some thanksgiving presents and I was so happy to finally receive the latest wave of Cars and Cars 2 movie moments 2-packs! Thank you! 

Also, a HUGE thanks to my very good friends and fellow Pixar fans T.J. and Julie Woslos over at the for thinking of me the day they found these. Even though they were rushed to make it to a movie, they took the time to send me a message to see if I would like them to pick these up for me. I'm so happy I accepted their offer because I still have not found them at any of my local stores. I'm thankful for them and for the time they put into giving all of us Pixar fans the latest Pixar news! Thanks again guys. 

Now onto these awesome sets:
First off, my personal favorite, Uncle Topolino's Band! Brita thought this was so cute and jokingly said she wanted to keep this one for herself.

 The band can be seen in Cars 2 during the Italian festival scene when Uncle and Aunt Topolino talk about the true meaning of friendship to Mcqueen (screen shot below):


 Doug Speedcheck and "Palace Danger" Finn McMissile:
 Doug is a British Police officer and can be see in London near the Queen at the end of the film (screen shot below):

Palace Danger Finn has a yelling expression (similar to the screen shot below when Finn and Holley are trying to escape Big Bentley). 
Yokoza and Chisaki:
These 2 cars can be seen with other "tuners" during the Tokyo party scene (screen shot below). All of the cars seen below were released this year.

Lightning Mcqueen (with sign) and Fred:
It was funny, T.J. and I both wondered "should I get this 2-pack just to get that sign since I already have Lighning and Fred?" The conclusion as a cars completest was..."Yes!"

Mcqueen is seen with the Rusteeze sign in the first Cars film when he tries to sneak into the Rusteeze tent unnoticed (as seen in the screen shot below):

And everyone who has seen Cars remembers the confused old rusty car Fred who yells in excitement "He knows my name!" as Mcqueen reads his license plate (screen shot below): 

Thanks for vising and be sure to check back daily for more from my Pixar collection. Have a great Thanksgiving!


  1. We're so glad we were able to help out! I was so worried that you were going to find these at your store and it would be a waste of money to ship them to you! At least it had panned out so far!!

    Also, yeah, I had to laugh as you brought up the conversation about being a "completist" again! Ha! It's a daily struggle! :)

    Oh, and Brita's right, Uncle Topolino's Band is one of my all-time favorite sets! They are so cute!

  2. Yay glad you saw my shout-out! I was hoping you would so you knew my appreciation. It really did work out great and I'm really surprised those sets never showed up at any stores near me but, but hey, thanks to you it doesn't really matter! I would probably be frustrated by now wondering why they never got stocked here : )
