Disney Pixar Cars

Updated Post on 16 October 2008, 15 December 2008, 11 February 2009, 27 February 2009, 6 March 2006, 10 March 2009, 9 December 2009, 27 January 2010



Cars from Pixar is an animated film directed by John Lasseter and Joe Ranfit.
It was released in theatres in June 2006 distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.
I like the story of this Car movie very much.
Many things about life we might have forgotten or never thought about were portrayed magically into the car's characters.
Leading us to think more about our lives and meaning.
What's important in LIFE...
It's a great movie. Great for kids and adults.
Highly recomended to watch!

This was my first purchase Cars.
It was my one and only from the Cars series for about 2 years.
And only till this July 2008 recently, I started collecting some others Cars.

The Dinoco Series :
Total of 5 Cars in Dinoco.
There's also another released of these 5 Dinoco pack as a gift set.
Which looks very very nice with all the Dinoco line-up in the box.
When I saw it, I've had already 3 different Dinoco, so I didn't buy the gift set.
If anyone would like to collect these Dinoco Cars too, maybe it's good idea to find out about the gift set packaging first before buying indiviual ones...

Collecting Cars seems tougher now.
Prices in Singapore has increase from S$10.90 to S$12.90 since the release of Race O Rama.
Even older stocks cars prices are also now changed to S$12.90.
Toys prices just kept increasing even in bad times like this.
I wonder why?
Is it due to the increase in raw materials? labours?
That's causing the overall production cost to be higher and thus leading to the mark-up of prices?
Or is it simply just for more profit??
I also don't know...
I'll just have to cut down on my side.
I've seen many nice new released cars but didn't buy them.
Now, I would only buy those "die die must buy! or very very like ones...!" LOL!

Hello phil,
Thank you for visiting and dropping a comment here!
Your son is so lucky to have a dad collection it all for him, all the best in your collecting journey too!
As for the pictures, I'm using a Nikon DSLR D60.
No external flash.
Most of the time set to "Auto" mode but sometimes using the "Cancel flash" mode also.
Depends if the items is highly reflective or not.
"Macro" mode is also use for close up of smaller toys.
Hope to have you visiting again!
Cheers and have a great weekend!

Nice collection photos! I enjoy seeing others collections. I couldnt help but notice the ROR cars that you have are international packages. Are you an international collector? Do you ever do any trades online? Also if you havent ever been there: http://www.carsthetoys.com is the best cars page on the net. Hope to hear back from you!

hello hannahuffster,
Thanks!
As for my Cars collection, I buy these cars locally (Singapore).
I do not trade online. Just collecting only.
I've just spotted the Race O Rama cars only at Toys R Us now. Brought 2 cars. The next day I went back again, there was none left. It was so fast... Vrooooommm they are gone!!!

Thanks for your link! I've not been there before.
It's a nice forum with wonderful pictures from different collectors in Collector's showcase! COOL!
Sure to be doing lots of reading there now!
Cheers and have a nice collecting adventure!

I usually get it from departmental stores like Metro and OG. Toys R Us is also another place I frequent.
