Flo's Cafe looks okay. I'll reserve my judgment until better pics show up.

I tried to enhance the pics:

8200 & 8201
8486 & 8487

It's great that they sell Lightning and Mater separately. :thumbup:

Thanks. The cafe is a bit simple, but I'm waiting for better pics.

Thanks for the new pics buddy and Oky! These Cars sets really look promising. I'm a fan of Cars and it might be hard to resist collecting these. I agree the separate McQueen and Mater small sets is a great idea, but only two of the Cars won't be enough for me and I might be tempted to get Flo's Cafe and the Mack set just to complete the characters.

Better pics.
Now I can make out the general structure of the Cafe, and it looks decent. I can't wait for the rest of the sets!

They look pretty good! Its definitely strange that Lego are selling McQueen and Mater in like impulse type sets. Flo's cafe does look good and really seems to have the whole bunch from radiator springs. I suspect the boxes with no image must be sets from Cars 2 cause Disney must want to keep it under wraps.

actually Mater and Lightning are the two top selling Cars figures. Look at how many variations there are in the normal toyline.

I guess their targeting the consumers that buy those small die cast cars

Yeah, I don't find it all that strange either. Those will sell like hot cakes!

By the way, the pics I posted above are still there.

You guys can't tell how delighted I am at these! Just look at those rims - they'll definitely be compatible with the TTs. I'm getting tired of the classic ten-spoke chromies. :P

Wow, just as I am trying to cut back Lego purchases for the new year because of other (more important) priorities, this comes along....
I am excited with the scale of this series, and the CARS characters that will be priduced. This will be an excellent move for Lego, scalewise, and I would expect it will have no trouble selling. Look at the marketing that's already been done with diecast, clothing and so on in the CARS theme.
Can't wait for some better pics, and prices.......

When I first saw the Cars sets in the leaked catalogue, I couldn't help but feel slightly disappointed. To me, they look very juniorised, very Megablock-ish. I know it isn't easy to faithfully recreate the characters at such a small scale without stickers/specialized pieces, but they look like they are getting frighteningly close to the danger zone (ie. Megablockland). I hope that when I saw clearer pictures of them they will look better.

However, seeing as Cars is one of my many favourite Pixar movies (despite the rather poor plot), I know I'll be getting my hands on a couple of these. Lego always gets me in the end. :laugh:

Those are old sets from the first Cars movie, the reviews on S@H for the sets are from last year (As far back as June)

No, they are printed, thankfully


This is great news, that the new cars in the Cars sets will be printed, not stickered!  :thumbup:

Yes, that's great news considering how many eyes and decals there are on the cars alone. On the other hand it will make all the pieces harder to reuse in non-Cars MOCs. Oh well.

By the way, I was wondering what 8678 Ultimate Build Francesco could look like, and a quick google search came up with pictures of a leaked diecast of the character. Apparently his name is Francesco Bernoulli and he's a Formula 1 race car.

Click here to see more pics. If this is anything like those large Ferrari F1 racers, this could be a great set! :thumbup: Hopefully it wont have a lot of Technic.

Oh, and could a mod please add the missing sets to the first post?

This is fun news. I was a little disappointed that the first run of cars was all Duplo. Way before I'm a pirates, I'm a gearhead, so I'll probably get all the sets from this theme. Is Doc Hudson  supposed to appear in this film?

...and to everyone that says these won't be compatible with "normal" system cars, these look 4 wide from the pictures I've seen. For years 4 wide was the Lego car standard so I can still see it working

Doc Hudson won't be in the film because his voice actor, Paul Newman, passed away. I'm not sure how many of the upcoming Cars sets will be from the original Cars and how many will be from Cars 2, however, so we might still see a set including him.
