    It's been a huge lull everywhere, boogity... stores are starting to do their resets... new items coming out are the Fireball Beach series items (at Target in the US and smaller stores in the UK) and the Thomasville Legends series (at US Walmart stores after coming out at Big W in Australia)... I've seen very few 2018 singles Cars... Deluxe have been more common and I have seen 2 packs at a few store chains... Toys R US merchandise has been showing up at many different consolidators stores in the US... Mattel hasn't even shown the 2018 poster and we are 3 months away from the 2019 Mattel year.

    2 new things appeared in California yesterday so there is hope for new merchandise... but this lull has been bad... if Mattel is making long-term collectors like me lose interest in their products there's a problem with their strategy... and I agree - 15 quid for Deluxe is too much to pay although I have paid more than I'd have liked to have paid for many items.

    I expect we'll see new case assortments sometime and would not be surprised to see the equivalent of the Super Case from 2012 with 2 Super Chase Cars and 11 or 12 new Cars total.

        Hamleys have opened a small store in the basement level at London Bridge railway station. It's similar to their small store at London St. Pancras International station. They had a few Cars and Hot Wheels items. Hot Wheels singles were £3.50, Cars 3 singles £8.00, Cars 2018 deluxe and double packs are £21. These prices are influenced by the high rents that Network Rail charge retailers and the high salaries paid to employees in Central London locations.

        Toymaster have the Road Trip On The Road 3-Car pack for £11.99. On the 'sale' price ticket it states the price is down from £19.99. I'm sure I paid £14.99 at ASDA.

        Although it's been suggested that the Fireball Beach Racers and Thomasville Racing Legends have been offered to smaller retailers, there have been no reports of them for sale in the UK so far. Toymaster have confirmed that they haven't been offered to their collective buyers, but individual stores or small groups within the brand may stock them. These two series would almost definitely have been been stocked by Toys R Us as the first to market retailer.

        Mattel have been busy offloading overstocks of various lines to both The Entertainer and Toymaster. On my travels, I saw loads of old Cars 3 singles and double packs (US carded) at B&M Bargains in Ipswich. Singles are generally £3.99 and double packs £7.99, the same prices as Toymaster Cars 3 'sale' stock.

        School holidays are always a good time for Mattel to clear the warehouses. Once the kids are back to school in September, expect to see some new stocks, hopefully Cars 3 singles!?

                        Nice find on the Cars Magazine, boogity... I have several of those that I got in the past from rippers and Mr Brownstone (2 names from the past)...

                        Anyone found any new Cars in the UK? None in the midwest within 150 miles of me...
