Love the movie "'Cars" and I always wanted to collect die cast cars. The only reason why I did not start is because I wanted to have a theme to my toy collection. I try to confine my collection to movie related toys. (But recently I started to collect GI Joe and Robots...:P)
So when Mattel started to make die cast cars from the movie "Cars". I had no reasons not to buy them.
A few new characters are popping out in stores right now. I got mine from Toys R Us Vivo
