Tokyo Mater and Dragon Lightning McQueen are two of our favorites! These cars were featured in the “Tokyo Mater” short. If you haven’t seen it, you have to check it out. Low-quality clips are available on YouTube, but we highly recommend picking up Mater’s Tall Tales on Blu-Ray and DVD. This video has the first 9 Mater Tales (also called “Cars Toons”) and is a great addition to your video library.
When the Disney Channel premiered “Tokyo Mater”, we DVR’d it. And it stayed on our DVR for a long time. Dawson must’ve watched it at least once a day for a good month solid. We were anxiously awaiting the release of these die cast cars. There was a whole series of “Tokyo Mater” die cast cars as well as from other Mater Tales. These are some of our favorites, as the Cars tend to be a little more “extreme” (especially the ones from “Tokyo Mater”).
Be on the lookout for more Mater Tales cars to be posted. We figured we’d kick of the series with our favorites. Here are some more photos of these ones:
