Cars 2 may not have gotten a lot of love compared to first film, but personally I thought it was great fun. Cars in general doesn’t get a lot of love from MOC’ers, but when it does they’re usually top notch and this one is no exception. Sgt. Highgear’s LEGO doppleganger by fvin&yan is spot on, looks ready to defend The Queen at all costs and is quite dashing in his studly bearskin to boot.

Update: I added the Toys’R’Us retailer exclusive below.
Cars 2 will be released in less than a week on Tuesday November 1. And since its the norm lately to offer highly anticipated releases in multiple formats, I thought I’d make a post on the different options available to you.
Let it be known that I prefer referring sales to Amazon if the price for a particular item is the same as another retailer since they offer both free shipping to your home and no charges for sales tax to most states. But Walmart’s affiliate program gave me an offer I couldn’t refuse, so I figure I’d make a post to try and push some sales. So, if you live in a state that doesn’t charge sales tax or you don’t mind paying it to support the state you live in, and you don’t mind supporting Walmart, and you want to support FBTB, and you don’t mind picking up your order with free site-to-store shipping, then maybe there’s a deal or two here for you.
If you haven’t picked up Star Wars on Blu-ray yet, Walmart is offering the complete saga for $79.99. They also have the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy both for $39.99. And lastly, LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace is a Walmart exclusive and can still be had for a measly $13 dollars. If you have little ones that are into LEGO Star Wars, a small investment will provide hours of entertainment.
In Cars 2 news, there is a Walmart-exclusive Blu-ray/DVD combo pack that also comes with a diecast car of Finn McMissile. No details yet if this version of the British spy is any different than the one that’s clogging up the pegs everywhere you go, but if it is we’ll let you know. The combo pack + car will run you $29.96. If you care more about 3D Blu-ray than a collectible, the 3D Blu-ray/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack might suit you better at $31.96. And if you don’t care about either and just want the movie, there’s a deal for that too for $24.96. All of the Cars 2 preorders will ship free to your home on the day it’s released on November 1, 2011.
For all you Pirates of the Caribbean fans, there’s a Walmart-exclusive release of the Blu-ray/DVD for On Stranger Tides that includes a Pirate Tin Bank. The tin bank set will set you back $24.96. This item will ship free to your home on October 18, 2011.
And finally, for you comic book movie fans, there’s Thor on Blu-ray/DVD for $22.96 plus a 3D version for $7 dollars more ($29.96), both with free Site-to-Store shipping. I think it’s funny that Green Lantern on Blu-ray/DVD costs more ($24.96) than Thor considering how terrible Green Lantern was. There’s a 3D version as well for $29.96. Green Lantern stinks up the DVD aisles on October 14, 2011.
Despite my apprehension at how much I would dislike this movie, I forced myself to go see it today so that I’d have a better frame of reference for the LEGO Cars sets that’s currently in my review queue. Everything I’ve seen and read about it lead me to believe that the plot would be more Mater-centric than Lightning McQueen and the prospect of sitting through more dumb jokes from Larry the Cable Guy did not appeal to me in the least.
Tipster Steve has found some Cars and Cars 2 sets are available direct from Amazon.com. They all qualify for free super saver shipping. Thanks for the tip, Steve!
