  • Excellent question, Justin... excellent insight, niftynigel.

    2021 singles case AA has been found at both Walmart and Target stores in the US in the last 2 weeks... so hopefully you'll see it fairly soon.

    I was a little bummed to find out that in the US, Target and Walmart bought all the stock of 2021 singles case AA... that means Mattel canceled the order for the case that had been placed by Get Me Collectibles.

    And because of COVID cases skyrocketing, I'm not wanting to do much if any Cars shopping out of town at this time... I may check a few stores in 2 weeks.

    Hopefully our UK friends will find the new 2021 Cars soon.

    • could very well be stuff out there, but havnt been out in the shops recently, getting tesco man to bring the groceries, this particular tesco man had a bad fall down a wifies steps when delivering her shopping, so he offside for a bit. my mother who has just turned 89 was diagnosed with covid in the nursing home along with a number of other old dears, as she was classed as life ending we were allowed in to see her for a period of 5 days, with ppe etc, first time in home since march, got a call saying we no longer allowed in.....as she off the critcal list and his making a recovery along with a few of the others, unfortunately some did die, which was sad

          The first wave (release) of the Drag Racers listed the next gen racer #117 as Lil Torquey Pistons... however, Lil Torquey Pistons is the name associated with the Piston Cup Racer version of #117.... the name of the next generation racer #117 is Spikey Fillups.

          And like you, boogity, seeing the same Car with a different name on the card label was strange to me... years ago I'd have bought the new Spikey Fillups labeled Car... but I no longer have to buy every variation of Car and card/label that Mattel releases... the 3.99 GBP price is a good price for those of you in the UK.

              • Most of the South/East of England and London is now in the new Tier 4 / Lockdown. This will be reviewed, but it's unlikely to be lifted until end of January at the earliest, but more likely March.

                All non essential shops are closed.

                It's not that important compared to the health and wellbeing of the nation, but I can't see any new Cars arriving or being distributed before Easter. That may well mean the UK misses out on the first few 2021 cases or any cars that were due only in those cases.

                We've missed out on dozens of cars in the last couple of years, so we're used to that anyway!

                Keeping healthy and avoiding COVID-19 is much more important right now.

                Stay safe, abide by the rules.
