    Was very surprised to see a Lightning McQueen with Shovel on 2017 card at Target today! Picked it up anyways.

    It'll be interesting to see if Mattel and TRU continue with the *exclusive* Radiator Springs (Classic) series or branding. TRU is set to downsize significantly in the UK and US and maybe other parts of the world too? Less stores probably means lower sales numbers means lower buying/bargaining power.

    In the UK, the 2017 Cars Toon singles series was passed up by ASDA (Wal*Mart owned) and the UK's second biggest supermarket chain, Sainsburys took it on, so far exclusively. Time will tell if this is permanent fixture or not. All the supermarkets have been downsizing their non-food space, no doubt as online sales, spearheaded by Amazon gradually kill off the High Street and now retail parks!
    I think that they will continue the RSC series in other parts of the world, they'll probably make another wave of them in 2018 or 2019. I don't think they'll downsize in Australia however, as they opened roughly 7 new stores in Aus last year.

    Thanks so much! Hopefully they will soon lol. They probably will, considering that Scott/Red/Tractor have hit the US, although at the same time, I'm not sure if they will because of the 2018 cars lol
