      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.
      the thrill of the chase... thats what it all about... you sound like that edjut up the avenue.... ru5ty... remember him

            Great finds, boogity... glad to hear the Salft Flats set is marked down at Smyth's... while others have found it at a consolidator (Ross) in the US, I have checked 3 Ross stores (all are 60 miles or further from my home) and have yet to find it... that 1:18 McQueen that you mentioned in your previous post sounds like a great Car.

        • Per boogity's post on June 4, here's a link from the B&M site that shows the new Cars he was referring to:

          https://www.bmstores.co.uk/products/...ssorted-336724

          Let us know when you find them in stores.

          • FYI - someone from the UK posted on Facebook that they found the Cars case CG singles at B&M earlier today, June 7, 2023... and has anyone found the D100 Crusin McQueen at Smyth's?

              I found Case G in B&M yesterday aswell. I also looked in Smyths but no sign of the D100 Crusin McQueen unfortunately but the cars are on offer 3 for 2. I hope Faregame gets another release in a later case as I missed that case

                  Great finds, VANDANCE - congratulations!

                  I am falling further and further behind...

              • Cheers Vandance!

                Some great Cars being found in the UK. Long may that continue!

                It was a memorable trip to Prague! That now ranks as the greatest sporting event that I have attended. Previously, it was seeing Harlequins win the Rugby Premiership for the first time in 2012.

                All bleary eyed - I hadn't slept since Monday night - I went to my local(ish) B&M on Thursday afternoon after I got back home. No Cars at the moment and haven't had any for a few months (after having had loads of them on a regular basis). I might venture out there again over the weekend.

                As Smyths are clearing out with a 3 for 2 sale, I guess they might have a new case soon. If they get the D100 McQueen, it might be in conjunction with a new case?

                Totally agree with you, we'll all be supporting Man. City tomorrow. Given that Arsenal threw all their eggs in their failed Premier League bid, it was shame that they didn't take the Europa League seriously, otherwise England may have had a clean sweep of the three UEFA trophies!

                    Great finds, VANDANCE! Congratulations! When new Cars come out at a rapid rate it does take us back to the good old days.

                • I popped into my local(ish) B&M today. They had a fresh case, only a couple missing. I picked up Pitstoposaurus, Kelly Beambright and Road Rumbler Lightning McQueen. All £3.99.
