        The cards look like the European clipstrip cards. They quite often appear as a stop-gap before proper singles cases appear. ASDA had two clipstrip assortments last year and earlier this year. As they sold so well, I guess that ASDA decided to purchase regular cases?

          • Awesome to see that new 2020 Cars have arrived in the UK...

            I went on a Cars hunt on Saturday 8/24/19... I drove 200 miles and stopped at 11 Meijer, 7 Walmart, and 5 Target stores... here are highlights of what I found:


            Maddy McGear appears to be a glossy paint variant... Otto Bonn appears to be a different paint version than the original Cars 2 made in China version.







            I also found 3 more of the Scavenger Cars at 1 of the 11 Meijer stores... I'm going to make a quick trip before work one morning this week.

            • I found the first 2020 carded cars in Asda this morning on a clip strip. There were a lot already sold but I picked up Ryan Laney, Barry Depedal and Sherrif. The new card looks nice and can’t wait to find the rest of the releases!

              • lucky you, found the new cars packaging in disney, only had dinoco cruz, all the rest were old ones, however you did get free dust.... so what does that tell you.. anyway left cruz at 6.99

                • Awesome find, VANDANCE! Congratulations! I hope you find the rest of the new releases soon.

                  I do agree that the new cards look nice... I'm telling myself that I'm not buying everything that's released on the new card... so far I've only been buying new Cars and first time Thailand releases of the racers... although I did buy Otto Bonn and Maddy McGear as they are variants.

                  So the free dust didn't tempt you to buy new Cars boogity... it wouldn't tempt me either... hopefully you'll find new Cars soon as well.

                  The only ones from that case you found niftynigel that I bought for myself are Metallic Ryan Shields and I did buy 1 The King and 1 Barry DePedal... I bought a couple of the next generation racers for a friend in Europe.

                  I've driven 700 extra miles in the last 9 days to stop at Meijer stores that have empty singles pegs hoping to find more of the made in China Scavenger Hunt rubber tire racers... the pegs are still empty... I'd been told every time that they'd have Cars on the pegs the next day... this past Monday (Labor Day) they told me they're coming but they don't know when.

                  • was talking to ru5ty last night, we were reminisising about the chases and finds back in the day, we reckon the best find was how we got brian park motors, now that gave us both a laugh, story is in the archives somewhere, this and others were the best thing about cars collecting and of course this forum

                      Glad to hear that you still see ru5ty from time to time, boogity... those were the days... we have had some great members of this forum and Cars community over the years... not as much activity on the website lately but we're trying.

                      No new store finds for me within the last week... maybe I'll get to go look this weekend.

                          Thank you for the update, niftynigel... the 2018-19 Demo Derby Fishtail, Jimbo, and McQueen as Chester Whipplefilter did not show up in the US; I got a set of the 3 of them from a friend in Canada... Walmart in the US ordered way too many of the Cars 3 ones... close out stores including Big Lots and TJ Maxx (TK Maxx in the UK) got the leftovers of the Cars 3 ones... Other than the Drag Racing singles, prices on what you found are decent compared to many prices in the UK.

                          I decided not to buy the Mud Racer singles or Deluxe (other than Speedy Comet)...

                            • went into disney in town, found some cracker new cars on the new card backs, that the good news, the girl asked me what one I was going to buy... I said I wouldnt be buying any at that price (6.99), what I should of said, come on , do you think i,m daft, anyone paying that price is plain stupid... walt can go swivel.....I took a picture for ru5ty , he agrees too, they just become greedy sods.. the sad thing is that I could of bought about say half a dozen... that works out at 42 quid.... but I will never pay this for lets face it ...is mass produced junk... rant over... well not quite,,, cant see to many on the other side of the pond paying that neither.
