    Thank you for the heads up on the new cases that you found, niftynigel... I'm looking forward to several of those Cars in the 975A case... I'm also glad to see that there is no tape on the blisters/cards.

    These are also Sellotape free!

    A number of different Deluxe and Double Packs have also appeared at Bentalls, Sainsburys and a few other locations:

    MISS FRITTER
    ARVY
    LIGHTYEAR BLIMP
    DR. DAMAGE
    FRANK - 2no

    Unlike the first Deluxe case, none of these (around 0198EAA) have Sellotape on them!

    The first case included:

    MISS FRITTER
    MURPHY
    FRANK
    Plus three others around 3557EAA.

    The cardbacks on the latest Deluxe have the names just in English!

    Great to hear from you, boogity... hope you had a great holiday in Spain - did you buy the Scavenger Hunt Mario Andretti? Nice find on the Finish Line McQueen.

    Nice find, VANDANCE! I like the one piece unibody design of Murphy on the 2018 cardback... the Murphy that was in the Toys R US Sarge's Boot Camp set was a 2 piece design.

    Congratulations on finding Frank, Murphy, and Miss Fritter, niftynigel... the 2018 Frank is supposed to be a slightly different size than the previously released Frank... a lot of people missed out on Frank after prices went sky high - for awhile Frank was $75 to $100 on eBay.

    Thanks to StuartW's post, I've been on the lookout for the 2018 deluxe's. Since Thursday, most Sainsburys I've been to have had them, but due to there being two Mack Semi's in the case, it's not surprising that these are turning into shelf warmers!

    Anyway, I did find a fresh case and grabbed Frank, Murphy and Miss Fritter at Sainsburys. We missed out on Frank all those years ago, so we're well pleased to get him at last! Even the abundance of Sellotape wasn't going to stop me from buying!

    There are also loads of Hot Wheels cases in shops now. I've bought 15 singles in the last couple of weeks, various Ford Mustang's mainly.

    Nice finds, StuartW! I'd like to find that 2018 singles case... or any 2018 singles case for that matter.

    The 2018 case of double packs appears to be the same one we've seen, niftynigel... there are 2 of each in the case of 12 in the US.

    And you would think that Mattel would solve the glue problem... but it hasn't happened... maybe they've purchased stock in a tape company.

    Great finds Stuart! There should be two Frank and two Murphy in those cases!

    Hamleys have 2018 double packs, some where priced at £18 and some £19.

    They had:

    Strip Weathers / Chick Hicks
    Brick Yardley / Cal Weathers
    Raoul CaRoule / Jeff Gorvette
    Dexter Hoover / Charlie Checker
    Kris Revstopski / Pat Traxson
    Gabriel / Aiden

    Like most of the singles, every one had Sellotape on them! Some had circular clear 'sticking plasters' on them! Oh! Mattel, wouldn't be simpler (and cheaper) to sort the clue problem out?

    Disney Stores reported that they will be getting 2018 singles at the late Spring reset in late May. They will be regular card backs and not clip strips!
