    That probably explains the case Iíve been seeing in multiple B&Mís, the same hook on them as the C case clipstrips we saw earlier this year with those contents, good value at £3.99 but managed to grab them all elsewhere previously.

    A few ASDA local to me have got more clipstrip assortments in - two cases per store by the looks of it! Found in the crisp, cereal and toilet rolls aisles!

    12 of the 20 Cars in the AJ case are in this assortment. These are the European clipstrip type rather than the J-clip hanger cards.

    All the cards have the same 8 87961 48789 3 barcode.

    In B&M stores I have been to this week have had either no Cars or the same AJ cases. But one B&M yesterday yielded an AL case.

    Congratulations on some great finds. I don't believe that the AB or AH cases have shown up in the UK as yet, but it's great that there are more AJ cases, although some of those cars are from other cases? Who knows what might turn up next!

    If Mattel want to continue the Cars mainline in the UK, they will need to do the hard sell or we are going to miss more cases! It's probably too big an ask for the whole range to be sold at only Smyths, ASDA, Sainsburys and a few independents? They've got to get Morrisons and Tesco back on board, unless they are no longer interested?

    Wow! Totally agree, what a great find. I'd not heard of Toytown until you posted this. They look a bit similar to Toys R Us - greatly missed! I'm thankful we have Smyths!

    Wow! Great scores, rossibutton! Congratulations! I've seen the case AL singles at 1 grocery and 1 auto parts store... I never saw the Super Chase Transforming Lightning McQueen in a store and paid $32 each for 2 of them on eBay... Brilliant find at an amazing price.

    It was also a good opportunity to grab another Gold McQueen with the promotion, so spent £14 and got the Scavenger Hunt Haul Inngas, Super Chase McQueen and Gold McQueen!

    Thank you for the heads up, VANDANCE! It's great to see a previously hard to find case of Cars but especially great to find it at a great price.

    Thank you so much for the case AL case contents, niftynigel... Much appreciated... I had guessed based on the limited photos I've seen... I have only been to 2 Target stores in the last 2 months and Get Me Collectibles hasn't received their AL case order yet so I've been unable to verify... the quantity 2 of Mummy Luigi & Ghost Guido is good news... I'm assuming Jeff Gorvette is the Cars 2 version but it would be great if it were the Cars 3 version which was only released in a 2 pack.
Working...
