    Went hunting on Friday after school (it was my last day) and got these.

    Precision Series Fillmore - Zing Pop Culture
    Cars 3 Lightning McQueen - Coles
    Cruz Ramirez as Frances Beltline - Woolworths

    I am keeping the latter two in the packaging since I already have them loose. Also, I got Harumi and Snot Rod with Flames from my teacher on the same day before school ended!

    Nice find, SamB2003!

    I haven't found anything new near me but haven't looked... however, there have been US store finds of 2 new Thomasville Racers at Walmart stores in California, Florida, Missouri, and Texas as well as Speedy Comet Hauler at a Walmart store in Texas.

    Nice find on Frank, SamB2003! I'm sure hoping that we'll see 2018 singles (and 2019 merchandise too) sometime... instead stores in the midwest keep getting more old 2017 singles... sigh.....

    Went to Big W near my house last Thursday and got the Fireball Beach Racers Lightning McQueen.

    And yesterday, I went to two different BWs and got more of those, which were Chase, Danny, Mater, Ryan, Jackson, and Luigi & Guido.

    Now I just need to get Rich, Dinoco Cruz and Sheldon from the ones being found in Australia so far.

    Made a quick trip to Indianapolis on Friday night to meet our youngest son, his wife, and their 2 young children... one the way home I stopped at a small town Walmart... it turned out to be a good decision.



    This is the first time I've seen that case of 2 packs in a store... This Spikey/Eric 2 pack is my favorite 2 pack of 2018,beating out the Gabriel/AIden 2 trainee 2 pack.

    I bought the Flo/Ramone 2 pack as they are supposedly variants... same with the Deluxe Frank Pinkerton... I'll check later.

    I also saw and left the new Brick Yardley launcher... I'm only buying the launchers if it's a Car I don't have in my collection... I have Brick Yardley and Lightning McQueen - I'm not buying the launchers... Speedy Comet, Floyd Mulvihill, and Brian Spark were first releases of Cars - I bought the launchers.

    These have finally made it to Walmart stores in the Midwest US... my local Hot Wheels friend bought them at the local Walmart for me earlier this morning.



    Now to find more new singles and 2 packs.

    Smyths's stores in the UK have a new case of singles that includes the Scavenger Hunt Dino Draftsky, Adam Parke, Carl Clutchen (Easy Idle), and the 2 trainees.

    The Thailand Markus supposedly has a brighter paint job (all the Thailand Cars do from what I've been told)... the eyes are also different.

    I'll try to do side by side comparison photos after I open them - I've been busy with lawn mower repair and trying to get our central air conditioner system working the last 2 week - the mower is fixed but not the AC... probably going to have to replace both the AC and furnace - both are 28 years old.
