LEGO Cars #8423 World Grand Prix Racing Rivalry Picture

I think this is an extension under the same theme, so I put it Cars instead of Cars 2. Anyway, Lightningtiger has three of the Cars sets uploaded in his Brickshelf account and this is the third one I'm blogging.

#8423 World Grand Prix Racing Rivalry

Most of the set seems not to have much pieces but they do give you other character from Car in each different set.

LEGO Cars #8201Classic Mater Picture

From the same person on Brickshelf, here's another folder that contains the pictures of #8201Classic Mater. Picture below is taken from Brickshelf (again):

Too bad, there can't be any minifigs in LEGO Cars and this individual car has become the collectables for this theme instead of minifigs itself. But they do look great and you are given printed parts.

Links to the folder are right below the picture.

LEGO Cars #8200 Radiator Springs Lightning McQueen Picture

I'm not sure whether the above title are the official name for the set, but according to Brickset, it suppose to be that name.

Seems like all of the pieces are printed parts and for car collector and fans of Cars (especially the kids), you might have a few of them to collect.
