    • Saturday May 15, 2021... I found 2021 singles case AG at the local Meijer... here's most of what I bought:



      I was most please to find Pam Wheeldarrow, View Zeen Tractor, and Hot Rod Louise Nash! I also bought the Muddy Rusteze Racing Center Lightning McQueen (not pictured).

      Looks like this is the same case that VANDANCE found at Asda (posted in the UK finds).

      • June 11 and June 13 Walmart store finds... 2 different stores in southern Indiana... I made a 360 mile trip each day for family and stopped at 1 Walmart each day (since I have family with me it's not a Cars hunting day like I'd go on by myself).



        The newest case supposedly has 1 Logano and 2 Laney... I found Logano but not Laney on the 11th and Laney but not Logano on the 13th.

        • June 23, 2021...

          Checked out the local Walmart at lunch this morning... they had 0 singles, 3 NASCAR singles, 1 Color Changer, and 8 Endurance Racers... that was all the Cars merchandise.

          Went to the local Meijer this morning... some new 2 packs... the rest of the case AG pegwarmers singles... and unfortunately, a clearance sign on the Deluxe Cars peg... I bought nothing.

          • January 19, 2022... pegs are bare at the local Walmart and Meijer and have been since before Christmas... it is very frustrating... I haven't found much in the way of Cars the few times I've looked at stores out of town since Christmas either.

            I'll try to add photos later (but I haven't seen them)...it appears Walmart stores are getting in a display with new NASCAR singles - Bubba Wheelhouse is called Torqueberry Juice... and there's a new McQueen variant with silver rims and a new mouth expression.

            • I have not been buying many Cars recently... I've bought no 2022 mainline singles so far - I don't plan on buying a variant just because it's on a new card... just new Cars...

              I did buy 2 each of these during February 2022.



              It's amazing how much further my money goes when I don't buy Cars.

              • Some of my most recent store finds...

                Sunday 4/23/2023: at 4 different Walmart stores I bought a total of 7 Cars: Claire, Disney 100 Flo, Cave McQueen, Mae, Deputy McQueen for me, and 2 of the Gold Rusteze Cruz for a friend.

                Shortly after Easter I found the Easter Mini Eggs at Meijer and bought 2 of #3

                That's pretty much it in the last couple of months.

                • Found these case D singles at the local Walmart on Friday 5/26/2023:

                  I still have only seen 1 Disney 100 single (Flo) from the Walmart case F 12 pack in a store.

                  • Happy July 4, everyone! Took advantage of today's US holiday to go to Dayton to get Crumbl Cookie and check a few stores... Pleasantly surprised to find these at Walmart #2:



                    I finally have a Cryptid Buster McQueen.

                    And the cookies will be mighty tasty as well.

                    • Sunday August 13 - found Nile and Road Rumbler Mater at a Dayton area Walmart.

                      Monday August 21, 2023... at the local Walmart... found 2 new Cars from a Walmart 12 Car case (probably their K case) this morning... Mato and Mallory.



                      Many earlier 12 Car cases contained many new Cars from the 24 Car case... the last cases only had 2 new Cars each... I'm missing most of the new Cars from cases CJ and CK... and I believe a friend in Florida may have found Cars from case CL at a Target store.

                      • August 24, 2023... Finally new Cars at Meijer this morning... 2 packs... it was worth getting drenched by a thunderstorm to score these.

                        What I bought:




                        What I didn't buy:


                        I did buy a Dragon McQueen/Drift Party Mater 2 pack as well.

                            Thank you, boogity... I was super excited to see these... hopefully we'll see a more widespread distribution of the 2 packs... In the US they've been found at Target ($7.99 each) and now Meijer ($9.99 each)...

                        • Awesome finds! Great timing and glad you didnít have a wasted trip!!

                            Thank you, VANDANCE... it was a great feeling to find these new 2 packs in a store.

                        • Just a general observation but does anyone know why Jeremy is commanding such a high price on eBay and the like? I didnít think he was limited or any rarer than the rest of the mix. Thanks all.

                            Very few US stores received the case with the Jeremy single... that's my opinion as to why people are paying a premium for that Car as either a single or in the 2 pack... Walmart has been purchasing 12 Car singles cases... Target got nothing newer than case E (CE) until the last month... there are so many singles that I haven't seen in stores... so many of the 2023 Cars that I don't have in my collection... and it's not bothering me nearly as much as it used to in past years.

                        • Thanks for the explanation Chris. We in the U,K have been blessed with some great supply and regular cases. I am with you on the hurry to add new cars to the collection. Good things come to those who wait!
