    Chris,
    Looking at the Blind Box designations from Post 1... You have them as Series 1, Series 2 and Series 3... Eli often advertises them as Case A, Case B, Case C, Case D. Is Series 1 = Case A, Series 2 = Case B, etc..?

    One thing I've gathered, and I don't know if it's country specific, but the Cases seem to have unique primary box Colors:

    Case A - Red
    Case B - A lighter almost french Blue
    Case C - Yellow
    Case D - A more medium Blue.

    Do these colors agree with your Series 1, Series 2 and Series 3, etc... designations?

    Regarding the Blind Bags.. they are designated as Waves... they are always black, but have different Cars featured on the bags... I've bought allot of blind bags, but always throw the bags away, so I don't have any reference for you...

      With the new Case D cars (5 new ones that never appeared in anything previously), I see a few cars spotted in spy shots that are not included:

      #HolaAmigoRamone
      #GeorgeNewwin
      #RexRevler

      So, I wonder if we will see a Case E soon? Hopefully it will have the long ago announced:
      Radiator Springs Series cars: #Guido
      Silver Series cars: #SilverLMQ
      Metallic Series cars: #MetallicMater, #MettalicGreenChickHicks
      Derby Racers Seires: #YellowMissFritter (non gold, non muddy)
      Cars 3 Series: #DinocoBlueLMQ (non metallic)
      Glow Series cars: #GlowMater

      The last rumored car I haven't see is #HydraulicRedRamone that is part of the still unseen #NightTimeInRadiatorSprings 3-pack.

      I'll attach a few fotos for my sources.


      My wish lists, (I've made these up and they are totally unsubstantiated, but I've kept it to a healthy minimum):

      Thomasville Series cars: #JuniorMoon, #SweetTea (With Junior Johnson passing away recently and the character having a few speaking parts in the movies... it's due as a MiniRacer).

      Radiator Springs Series cars: #Lizzie, #Stanley, #Frank, #Tractor (regular), #Bessie, #Otis (I know, some of these are stretches because they didn't appear in Cars3 specifically)

      Cars 3 Series cars: #Tex, #Dusty Rusteze, #Rusty Rusteze (these are key owners that should be represented by a MiniRacer.... after all Sterling was represented.) Make them a 3pack.

          Peter,

          I don't know if I fully know the answers to your question... The very first box of blind bags mini racers contained just numbers 01 through 08... gradually Mattel released additional case which contained a few previously unreleased numbers and some of the repeats... then they changed the numbering scheme which meant almost all of the mini racers had different numbers.

          As far as blind boxes are concerned, I've only seen (in stores) 2 different case A which come in red boxes and are labeled on the case box as Series 1... the first shipment had printed labels on each individual box... the second shipment had the labeling indented... I've not seen the outer cardboard case box that the case box came in... I have a case D on order that I hope to receive next week... I will take pictures of the box and inner boxes as I open them up... I will be able to see what the Series number is on the box... I'll post what I find once I find them... I'm trying to limit myself to just the new releases of the Mini Racers but I'm not buying 10 or 15 packs just to get 1 or 2 new Cars... someone posted pictures of a couple of new 10 packs which were shown on the PCD Facebook page from a French seller's eBay listing.

            Here are 2 new 10 packs of mini racers that are currently for sale by the eBay seller 06benal06 - located in France, I don't know if they ship outside of France.






            Here's a link to one of the new 10 packs:

            https://www.ebay.com/itm/VOITURES-CA...wAAOSwpUteBRtX

            I won't be bidding on these since I have the blind box D case on order.

              Me neither... I had already ordered the 5 cars I needed from BlindBox D .... so it would just be the #RoadTripRamone and #SteveSlickLePage that would interest me.... don't want to have the other 18 duplicates from 2 10packs just to get them. I'll wait on those two when they become available through some other means (just like I'm still doing with PrimerMcQueen).

                  Correct - the numbers 40 and 47-52 were never released as blind bags.

                      Awesome finds, VANDANCE! I don't have Todd or any of the rest of the new Wave 3 boxes yet... congratulations!

                        Yes thanks Chris, the new wave of mini racers have just been put out as part of the Asda / Walmart reset after Christmas. Thanks to the users on this site for keeping us all up to date with the box numbers as I had no idea what number Todd was until checking here. after a quick look I was able to easily find the new cars I needed.

                          I found the Mack Transport w/ 5 Cars, one of which is Primer Lightning McQueen. I live in Mexico in the winter and was delighted to find it available here on Mercado Libre (Mexican Ebay alternative). I purchased it and it shipped from Mexico City to my tiny Pueblo of Álamos Sonora Mex in under 7 days. (I've purchased many things on Mercado Libre and find it a safe option and affordable option.) Primer McQueen is the last #PixarCarsMiniRacer that I needed, not counting the recently shown RoadTripRamone and SteveLaPage 3packs in France. I'm keeping him in the box until I return to my home in Arizona and then I will put him with all of my other mini racers. (I have a tray of duplicates here in Álamos that I've been giving to kids.. that's been fun).

                          I'm delighted that he appears to be available in the short term in the Mack Transport here in Mexico (I've seen three listings.. between 899mxn, 999mxn and 1299mxn.. I got mine at 899mxn with free shipping... yeah.. about $45usd.. not bad). Anyway, that's why I included it in the Checklist thread, just to show that it seems to be available to us in North America by some means! I live in a tiny pueblo, so I don't know if major stores like Walmart, Elektra, Mega, Soriana, Ley are carrying it or not....
