    • Went to Smyths toys today and got these



      They had 2 unopened boxes of cars on the top shelf there,they were both full of 2012 cars 2 porto corsa cards and was the case which contained don crumlin,mel dorado,Lewis,etc.
      Also got to open 3 different planes cases looking for rochelle and ishani,but sadly no joy,they had a few chug cases there.
      On about to leave the store the manager pulled me to one side and said that there were more cars in the stockroom,and the cars I had are in the pic provided

          • couple more home bargains finds,
            more light and sounds, finn, francseco, axelrod and rod
            picked up a nice 1.32 ish scale pull back raoul, reckon I could covert this to run on the scalextric track - nice car and nice size
            they only had schu and probably more were there at the beginning

            nigel , how do you think hb gets all this stuff?

              I don't know too much about Home Bargains and other similar outlets, but I guess that there could be a number of reasons?

              1). They have a defined market, being cheaper than elsewhere on a lot of end of line ranges.

              2). They have aggressive buyers / negotiators.

              3). No one else wants the ranges they sell. What stores are willing to stock up on Cars 2 Lights & Sounds and sell them at 8.99 or more?

              4). Mattel UK sources lots of overstocks and rejects from all over the world, often at knock down prices. TRU and Smyths have taken Cars 2 Deluxe, Doubles and some singles. ASDA and Wilkinson have too.
