            I haven't posted as I haven't found any new Cars for weeks!

            I've paid a couple of visits to Smyths in search of Doug Crankel, but none of the Smyths on my routes have had that case. Now there's a new case...CF!

            Congratulations to everyone who has found the CF case with all the Disney 100 cars in them!

                Great find, boogity!

            • I found a couple of unopened 96CF cases (0333A1) (S05A) at Smyths in Charlton, London the other day.

              I picked up the six Disney 100 singles, Claire Gunz'er and Cryptid Buster Lightning McQueen. That's the largest number of new Cars I've purchased for some time!

              I also saw fresh 96CC cases at Toymaster and Morrisons. That's the first cases I've seen at both of those shops in a long time.

              The current situation (for 2023) would appear to be...

              Smyths - 96CF, 96CD, 96CC. Price £6.99.

              B&M - 96CF, 96CB. Price £3.99.

              ALDI - 96CC (First known appearance of Cars at ALDI). Price £4.99.

              Morrisons - 96CC. Price £7.50.

              Toymaster - 96CE, 96CC. Price £7.99 or £7.49.

              ASDA and Sainsburys are only stocking Cars occasionally. ASDA had a 'clipstrip' variant of the 96CB case a few weeks back.

              Tesco appear to have given up on Cars and Hot Wheels or maybe just Mattel totally?

                Brilliant finds, niftynigel! Congratulations! I am so looking forward to Cryptid Buster McQueen and completing the set of Disney 100 singles... And thank you for listing what stores have Cars and the prices... in the US we are down to Walmart and Target and occasional grocery stores which may or may not have much (or any) of a selection at all.

            • found buster mcq in smyths today, also that 9 pack cars on the road, reduced to 39.99!

                Awesome finds, boogity! I'm hoping to find Cryptid Buster McQueen one day...

            • chris, i,m surprised so few stores are carrying the range

              • Case CE has been found in the UK! Toymaster became the first stores to get the case at the beginning of May. With Smyths getting lots of the CF case, it remains to be seen if any other stores get the CE case in the UK?

                I picked up Mae Pillar-Durev, Lightning McQueen Deputy Hazzard and Cave Lightning McQueen.

                • The Entertainer have now got the 96CF case, which they share with B&M and Smyths.

                  They are priced at £7.50, compared to B&M (£3.99) and Smyths (£6.99).

                    Brilliant find, niftynigel... I am so wanting a Cryptid Buster McQueen for my collection... that is a large price range on the singles ranging from B&M (£3.99) to The Entertainer (£7.50)

                • I found the whole set of the Disney 100 cars at B&M yesterday. £3.99 each and loads of the mainline singles as well. On a slightly different tangent, Boogity mentioned the Lego Peugeot Le Mans hyper carÖ.had to get that too!!! And I found the Glory Chaser hot wheels super treasure hunt on short card! Had a good week so far Itís been expensive!

                    Wow - incredible finds, VANDANCE! Congratulations!

                • Thanks Chris, yes shocked to get a $uper treasure hunt. It was hot wheels collecting that sparked my cars collecting. I collect both to this day. Mattel certainly had their monies worth from me!! Although prices have skyrocketed since I started hot wheels collecting in 1998. I used to pay 75p for a single hot wheels, now £2.30 per vehicle, some places cheaper, some even more expensive! Cars were £2.99 back in the day in 2006, fast forward to 2023, and you wonít get much change out of £10. There are discount stores that sell cheaper but my point is itís not a cheap hobby anymore. However, if you enjoy it, it doesnít matter about the cost, itís the thrill of the chase and the enjoyment of striving to complete your collection.
