Last week we created a detailed all-in-one post that highlighted the Pixar-related merchandise, screenings, panels, and more that you can experience at the 2013 D23 Expo. Today we wanted to post additional details regarding two Cars sets that are Expo exclusives. First, thanks to our reader, Kevin, we have additional details surrounding the blue metallic, 1:18 scale Lightning McQueen by Ridemakerz (plastic, not die-cast). The slick-looking Lightning McQueen will be priced at $75.00 USD and will be a limited edition of 500.
For fans of Ridemakerz, the car will come complete with:
- 2013 Limited Edition Lightning McQueen Body 1:18 Scale
- Blue 5 Bolt Rims
- Lightyear Slickz Tires
- Limited Edition D23 Spoiler
- Working Lights and Sounds
- Ridemakerz Freewheel Chassis
- Featured in a collectible D23 Limited Edition Package (Approx. Height 5.75” width x 12” Depth 6.75” 1.75lbs)
For anyone that’s not familiar with the Cars scales – I have also attached a photo from my review of the 2011 D23 Expo Chrome Lightning McQueen.
Finally, we are more than happy that the Cars Convoy Brothers die-cast 4-pack will be sold at this year’s Expo since this set has been rumored to have been released for the last several years. The Convoy set (The King fans) is a set of four RVs that come in a highly detailed and weathered Dinoco Motor Oil box. The set will be sold at the Disney Consumer Products Pavilion in the Mattel booth for $99.95 and doesn’t appear to be a limited edition set.
