    So I know that it's not in DLR but in WDW but I was wondering if anybody knows if any of the merchandise will be available for purchase at DLR or online? I'm interested in the die cast car set that resembles the Star Wars characters.

    bump.

    Does anybody know or has anybody seen the Cars die cast characters as Star Wars characters for sale at DLR or is it only available at Star Wars Weekend in FL?

    I can't figure out how to post a picture as it asks me to post a url link but an example of one of the items is Mater is Darth Vader and the tractors that he tips is a Storm Trooper and the porsche is Princess Leia.

    And meant to quote the other posters, but not good enough on this board to figure out how to do it, so hope they get this information.

    Here is a link for the merchandise available this year. I took the liberty of pasting the "blog" question and answer for the Cars SW die-cast cars.

    Cheers!

    Steven,
    Very excited about the Cars Star Wars die-cast cars! Will these be available online or through guest services after SW Weekends? Thanks!

    Steven Miller on March 27th, 2013 at 5:32 pm
    @Frank – These items will be introduced during Star Wars Weekends. The plan is to carry them beyond the event at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. They won’t be offered online. I don’t have item numbers for them yet but our Merchandise Guests Services team may be able to help you once released.

    May the 4th Be with You!
    Available on May 4, 2013, While Supplies Last

    The force is strong with Limited Time Magic! In honor of Star Wars day, Disneyland Resort is selling special edition Star Wars-themed pins and tees. With messages like "May the Fourth Be with You" and "Revenge of the Fifth", you can wear all the hyperspace hilarity on your sleeve! So do, or do not… but if you do, do so while supplies last at Disney Pin Traders in Downtown Disney District or Little Green Men Store Command in Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park. Only a Sith would miss this magic event!

    Are you responding to my question about the Cars die cast cars as Star Wars characters or the post above about the pins?

    Yes, it was the Cars die cast cars as Star Wars characters that I saw at World of Disney right after Easter. I think they were in 2-packs.

    Thanks for this information. I'll be calling the merchandise number today to see what they tell me. I tried calling this weekend but they were closed and I tried calling the World of Disney store but it just went to a recording saying that they were busy helping people in the store.

    You are welcome. We usually go down to DLR because it is easier for flights, so just a fluke that I will be in WDW for this merchandise.

    Welcome! I have learned so much on DIS that I am trying to pay it forward. I hope they actually put these for sale online as well because I have friends and family here in Canada that want them. (And I don't want to bring back a dozen sets either. LOL.)

    And to whet yours and Epek's appetite here is an enlarged picture of Cars SWW 2013:

    Cheers!

    I just called the Disney merchandise telephone number and the person on the other end said that I wasn't able to purchase the products until they're officially released. (confused because someone on here said they've seen them at the World of Disney store in Anaheim.) She then said that once they're officially released, you have to wait until the event actually ends before the merchandise dept can actually sell them and that won't be until June 9th.

    I just emailed the merchandise email address to ask them about it to see what they say.

    When we were there in the last week of Jan 2013, we found some in a little store in DCA. I'm not positive but think it was a shop that was right across from Soarin', that also sells some simple model planes. My son bought the hotwheel size Darthvader, but I think there was possibly a storm trooper, Artoo Detoo, and I don't remember if there was anything else. He bought the single car, but I know if there was a multi pack option. Probably so.
    Sorry I don't remember more details, hope this helps.

    Hi all,

    I asked my son if he had "Cars" that were SW themed from last year. He said, "No, but I have cars that are SW themed." "Huh?" said confused dad. So he showed me some of the stocking stuffers I had given him for Christmas (dad is officially embarassed that he obviously spoils his boys that he can't even remember what he has bought them).

    Anyway, the link below shows some of the merchandise that was being blogged by the WDW merchandisers for Christmas 2012. I pasted the little blurb about the Disney Racers and how much they cost individually and on "sale". I am going to guess that these are the die cast cars that have been seen by some of the posters.

    My guess is for those who cannot make it to a SWW at WDW, these Cars SW 2013 will not hit DLR until mid-June or even later if they sell out. And it looks like they are not going to be offered online either. If I find out more information on Disney stores and/or pricing, I will pass it on.

    Cheers!

    Roehl

    Three Disney Racers for $15.00
    When I was younger, I recall receiving die-cast cars in my holiday stocking. For fans of Disney Racers, you can get three Disney Racers for $15.00 (plus tax). This offer applies only to single Disney Racers ticketed at $5.95 each.

    I have seen those Racers but they're not the ones I'm referring to. Someone previously in an earlier post did actually post a link to a picture of the die-cast cars that I'm referring to. I'm wondering if the people that have said that they've seen the items may be referring to the Racers instead of the ones that I'm referring to?

    Yes, it was the Racers that my son bought. I didn't read your post carefully enough to notice it was the Cars characters you were looking for sorry.

    No worries. Thanks for trying. I'm wondering if the information that the lady on the phone is accurate then becuase I beliebe a previous poster did cut and paste a quote from someone at Disney saying that the special items wouldn't be available in the parks until the day of or something like that. I'll just have to keep checking.

    I think we're planning on going to DLR sometime in the middle of May and hopefully, they'll still have some left for me. ;)
