I think I'll play the waiting game and see if they come out here in the mid-west...

from what i've been reading they might never get here.
One of the toy car web sites has them listed on the schedule for next year. If they don't get here, they don't get here. Right now I can't spend $40 on a toy car.

Well...

I got tired of waiting for PT Flea and bought one on EBay for $9. I was one who was sure the design was a nod to the PT Cruiser. I gave them poetic license for dropping the rear doors.

Now that I have it, I think the only way this is a nod to the PT is if the Pixar folks made it just different enough not to need permission from DCX to use it in the movie. It's still going in the display case with my PTs, but not where you can see the back of it.









For those who want a better look, a link to higher res versions:

...and for those wondering what's up with the hood, the PT Flea character from a Bug's Life that was the subject of the CARS parody has some kind of mustache:

I did see the 2-pack of PT Flea & Flick at London's Heathrow airport on a business trip in March, but with the conversion from Pounds it would have been about $16. Guess I've gotten cheap, but that was too much.

Well maybe by the time we get there they may come down in price..If they are still there..
One can only hope...the way the dollar keeps losing value, I kinda doubt it. Can't be too much longer before it shows up in the States.

Oops, yeah, I should have said 'North America'...
