        Awesome find, boogity! Congratulations! I understand that the high price took a little of the shine off, but Kurt's a great Car I'm looking forward to.

        And your previous post where you mentioned Tesco... my wife and I went to see a play called Calendar Girls last weekend... the setting was a town in the UK... they shopped at Tesco and there was a Tesco bag used as a prop... took me back to the days when I received Cars from UK friends and the Cars were wrapped in bags from Tesco and/or Asda... been awhile.

          Good luck to our UK friends/members finding these new Cars.

          • It's about time Smyths got something new, they have tended to buy too many of the same case - maybe unavoidable as the number of retailers stocking Cars in the UK has reduced dramatically. Maybe Mattel need to do the hard sell a little more vigorously? if there's new stuff, it does sell!

            • reckon the decent stuff is smyths

              • Thanks for the heads up Chris!

                I picked up Primer Lightning McQueen and Intro Ramone at TK Maxx. £5.99 each on US cardback (and no sellotape unlike the UK/EU versions at TRU a couple of years ago).

                Smyths have a new case. I'll post full details, hopefully tomorrow. I bought nine Cars there at £6.99 each.

                  You're welcome, niftynigel... I wanted to get the word out... and I'm glad that you were able to find the new Cars at Smyths and get 2 oldie but goodies at TK Maxx... hopefully others will find them too... I have yet to find the last 2 cases of 2020 singles in any store but I have friends who have gotten them for me... now I just have to wait for them to have time to mail them to me.

                  Anyway, congratulations on your finds! It's always great to find new Cars to add to your collection.

                  • I don't know the case number as Smyths had put all the Cars out. It took me some time to look through around 100 plus cars, to find good ones on card. The latest Cars (dated M36A) are similar to the Euro clipstrips. The cards aren't as sturdy as they have been....

                    • Brilliant finds, niftynigel! Congratulations! That is a really good case... Terry Kargas and Kris Revstopski are significant new versions of previously released Cars... Randy Lawson is a great old time racing Car... Kurt is the new trainee which I realize you in the UK may have already found... The Shiny Wax Tractor is new... Bruce Miller is actually not the Cars 3 Bruce Miller but the RPM #64 Cars 1 Piston Cup Racer. This is the best 2020 singles case so far, in my opinion... I have yet to find it in a store but hopefully will before Christmas.

                          • The singles case found at Hamleys contained the following Cars:

                            Jackson Storm - 3

                            Metallic Cal Weathers - NEW

                            There's certainly three Cars in there that I'd like. I'm not sure I'd want to pay £8 that Hamleys were charging though!

                            They were dated M38A. I'm not sure when I'm next in London, but I'll try and find out the case number.

                            Additionally, they had 2-Packs at £21, yes you read that right, £21 - that's over 26 USD each!

                            Waitress Mia and Tia
                            Bumper Save Tractor / Rust-Eze Cruz Ramirez
                            Charlie Checker / Race Official Tom
                            Maddy McGear / Melissa Bernabrake
                            Alex Machino / Guiseppe Motorosi
                            Sweet Tea / Guido

                            Eugene Carbureski / Bobby Swift

                            Dated M37A

                            I got Heyday Junior Moon / Eli Turnpike and Maddy McGear / Melissa Bernabrake at TK Maxx for £7.99 each.
