The Diecast Cars - "McQueens"

Blu Ray Lightning McQueenThe "McQueens" of the Diecast Disney Cars Line

Some diecast Disney Cars are harder to find than others. Take, for example the Blu Ray version of Lightning McQueen (shown left). This one goes for a pretty pretty penny, and is QUITE hard to find.

There are some other ones too - the "McQueen" line of diecast cars is by far the most popular - there are now about 10 - I think - and that doesn't include the minis.

Wanna see 'em? :) Cool.

Here they are on eBay (general search - the 10 earliest-ending auctions):

OK, now here's the tricky part. Can we find the "Blu Ray" version of McQueen? Let's give it a shot:

Now, one more stop - here is a page dedicated to the various types of diecast McQueens, and recommended shopping resources for each one: Disney Cars Die Cast: Lightning McQueen on Squidoo.

You just gotta love those diecast cars. :-) I hope that this helps you in finding the Lightning McQueen diecast that you're hunting down!

Thanks for visiting.

Disney Cars Mini

Disney Cars Mini Adventures LogoDisney Cars Mini Adventures

I don't know about you, but I've noticed that the Disney Cars Mini Adventure Cars have become almost as much of a "hot item" than the regular diecast cars!

They number now (by my count) 23 different Mini Adventure sets as of August, 2008.

There are some very interesting combinations as well - I would never have thought of Red the Firetruck in blue - or - Lightning McQueen teaming up with Sarge and wearing military garb!

Fun stuff.

I've noticed something else - they are kind of tough to find all in one place. In other words, if you are looking for a particular Disney Cars Mini, you might have a tough time, unless you know just where to look.

SO, for convenience sake, I have sorted out the various sets of Disney Cars Minis (and some toy set that go with them) in alphabetical order. A link to each item is below, so they are easy to find:
