  • Coming Soon: Thomasville Racing Legends Cars

    Fillmore1234 has been mentioning these on the PCD Facebook group as coming soon to Walmart in the US... but it appears that new paint jobs of some of the Cars 3 Cars that pay tribute to the old legends of Thomasville are coming soon.

    This photo is a screen capture of an online ad from BigW stores in Australia.



    I like the Ransburg Fabulous Lightning McQueen... not sure if I'll buy the others.

      These are now listed on the Walmart.com website but they are not available to order or purchase online.

      This is my favorite one of the bunch:

      Jackson Storm is pretty cool too:



      It looks like these are going to be taking the pegs that the Demo Derby Cars singles have been taking for the past year.

      It looks like there are 6 of them in the first "wave" (release)... the artwork on the card is nice but they are all McQueen.

      Please let us know when you find them in a store.

        Picked up these guys today, Big W Australia, missed the Fabulous LMQ. I like all of them, nice vintage racing colours and livery with funny product slogans. The clear plastic blisters have a cool little feature - etched pattern on the sides to resemble the wooden planks to make old signs. Hope they release more in future waves, even better if they do some classic cars.

              July 19, 2018... FYI... a friend in Florida just found 4 of these new singles at a Walmart store... I'll post the photo after I receive permission.

              I was ho-hum about these when I first learned about them... but now, I can't wait!

                  Much cooler than the Fireball Beach series IMO.

                      And intentionally short packed... Shocked that it's not the metallic McQ.

                            Welcome to the PCD website, Cars4mywarrior! Congratulations on your nice find - I'm glad your son likes them... some parts of the country are receiving plenty of the Thomasville racers - others have yet to receive any... I have only seen Thomasville Racers at 4 different Walmart stores and have yet to find Reb Meeker (aka Gasprin) in a store... I track them on Brickseek - some stores appear to have gotten the Thomasville Racers but have yet to put them out.

                            This link is for the Lightning McQueen with metallic paint:

                            I haven't found a link for the Reb Meeker (Gasprin) Thomasville racer.
