I can't wait. It would be cool if TLG makes promo packs for some of the cars.

Don't think they will be stickers.

Do any of the Toy Story sets have stickers?

Off the top of my head....the Woody's Round Up has some stickers on the signs ("jail" etc). The Pizza Planet Truck was printed. The Create a Buzz I believe was a mix of stickers and printed parts.

I find it weird that these weren't shown last week at the Toy Fair.

They looks fine, I'm not buying any of them, $7a car is way too much for me.

Man the majority of these sets are sweet. I can't wait til they come out. My son is gonna flip when he sees them.

The Tokyo circuit, Mack's Team Truck and Ultimate Mater are on my hit list for my son. He loves McQueen, Mater and Mack. It's gonna be a crazy summer is all I can say!

The targeting screen on Mater looks awesome. Hope it's printed and not a sticker.

In the 4th video on the lego cars site they show him applying stickers.
So my guess is, it will be stickers.

Either way, we'll find out in about a month.

Some of them really do look like stickers. The Mater logo on Mater looks like a sticker, but the targeting screen does not. I expect a healthy mix of both elements.

The newest video shows production of McQueens top being stamped, so looks like they will have some stamped pieces.

If the sets weren't being made at the time then most likely they made the pieces as a test run and then just printed out stickers to see what looks best before printing on the pieces for the sets.

Disney sets seem to have a lot of stamping instead of stickers, maybe Disney has something in their contract for that.

The LEGO 8426 Escape at Sea set looks great. What LEGO collection wouldn't be complete without a Battleship!

Some of these sets look great while some of them look terrible. Happy for the advanced pictures but the whole line looks like a mixed bag.

Just picked up 3 each of the 8200 Lightning McQueen and 8201 Classic Mater set for 6.99 at target in Gilbert AZ. Looks like some stores may be putting them out a few days early.
