There appears to be no common situation anywhere, apart from The Entertainer and Toymaster having loads of RDTRIP singles at £3.99. You never know, maybe Fireball Beach and Thomasville Racers will end up there at good prices, rather than the £7.97 as previously found at ASDA!? We can only hope! As a start, it would be great to get some new singles cases on general release. In the London area at least, just about everything to do with Cars sold out for Christmas, so maybe the market is still there?

    A manager at The Entertainer told me that that they had been offered Haulers with a RRP of £34.99. They thought that was way too high, especially with the case contents. They were looking at selling them at 'under £20' but with an assurance that there would be more varied contents as they didn't want to be stuck with loads of Wally or Macks!
    well what middleman/distributer has these flammin haulers then, flamin joke, not as much as those thomasville racers in budabest ... 15 quid... and they didnt even have the good ones

    Great finds, rossibutton! I only found that case one time at one Walmart store - as GotFrank said, it was not distributed well at all in the US.

    Nice finds! That case wasn't distributed very well here in the US.

    The 2018 cases we have had so far in the UK are:

    Amended 02.01.2019 - Information from European collectors and dealers. Thanks!

    974U (Similar to US 9565) (3197EAA) - Initially at Smyths superstores in September but followed by Disney Stores. Smyths refused the 3no McQueens and the cases were overstickered 8503.

    974W/923W (US 957A) (3337EAA) - Again Smyths only so far. No McQueens and overstickered 8502.

    974Y (US 957B) - A very limited number appeared at Disney. I've only seen the remnants. Hopefully the case will be more widely distributed in the new year now that 975A has been seen everywhere? Like the early 2018 cases, manufactured at the end of 2017, the cars have Sellotape on them.

    975A (US 957F) (0408/1308/2818EAA) - Initially ASDA, then Smyths (8501 no McQueens). Recently, this case has been found at ASDA, Morrisons, Tesco and Hamleys with the later date. The Cars are selling well!

    975B (US 957G) - Europe only so far.

    975C (US 957J) - Europe only so far.

    975D (US 957P) - Disney Store only. Quite a lot still around. Selling well.

    975E (US 957R) - Reports that this has just appeared at 'small' stores. Like the 974Y case, I'm looking forward to seeing this case!

    975F and 975G have been reported in mainland Europe. I guess they must be US 957S and 957T?

    I'll try and post contents for cases I've not reported so far! Later today or tomorrow!

    I am interested to hear this case has hit Tesco! How much are they? I found the same case In Morrisons last week priced at £7 each. I also picked up Carl Clutchen, Adam Parke and metallic Dino Draftsky. All the Tescos near me still have racing centre LMQ and all the assortment from the first cases of cars 3. Been a tough year for collecting but glad to see new cars are about.
