  • July 26, 2020... I went on my first Cars hunt in almost 5 months this morning... did ok at 1 Walmart, 1 Meijer, and 1 Target... case J singles and the Clutch Aid Mud Racer (not pictured) from Meijer... Bumper Save Hauler and Faregame from Walmart... Welcome to Radiator Springs Cars and Color Changers came from Target... came up empty at the other stores and Ollie’s..

    Meijer:


    Walmart: This is the first Paul Conrev Hauler I've seen with the teal/dark teal trailer.


    Target: Welcome to Radiator Springs: I just got a set from a friend in Germany - he found them at a Mueller store.


    Target: Color Changers.



    This is my best day of in-store finds in a long time, but like I said, this is my first Cars hunt in 5 months.

    • My wife and I went to a few stores in SW Ohio Saturday, 8/15/2020... found the Endurance Racers and the new 5 packs (which I left) at 1 of 2 Walmart stores... found the new Minis 3 pack at both Target stores and bought it at one... got the puzzle at the one Meijer store we stopped at... went to 2 other stores she wanted to go to... I'm hoping to have friends help with the Pixar Fest Cars as my nearest Target stores are over 50 miles away.


      Walmart purchases: I really like the Endurance Racers.


      Walmart 5 packs - I did not buy... Front and back.





      Target purchase: new Mini Racers 3 pack featuring First Look Chase Racelott:


      Puzzle purchase from Meijer; I worked the puzzle last night.


      We also stopped at a couple of stores she wanted to stop at and enjoyed a nice lunch.

      • Spent between September 4th and 12th on vacation in Florida - I drove down and back - stopped at a few stores but not very many... found a Cupcake McQueen and a Muddy Rusteze Racing Center McQueen at one Florida Walmart and the new Laura/Ray (Jackson Storm Pitty/Crew Chief) 2 pack at another one... bought 2 more sets of the Pixar Fest Cars at a Florida Target for a friend.

        And as far as Cars is concerned, my best part of the vacation was meeting fellow Cars collector Jay Mac while on vacation - we've been talking Cars and helping each other out with Cars for going on 12 years...

        Came home to empty pegs at the local Walmart - 0 singles, 0 Endurance Racers, 0 Color Changers means 0 dollars spent... I'm waiting for case L and M singles, case N singles, the new Endurance Racers, the new Welcome to Radiator Springs singes.

          That last sentence sums up the major supermarkets in the UK. Tesco and Sainsburys have nothing at all, even very light on Hot Wheels at the moment. VANDANCE reported that there were some 'Euro' clipstrips at ASDA. I've got a few near me, none had clipstrips or remnants. Indeed, like a few local Morrisons, ASDA had nothing Cars or Hot Wheels. It's a very frustrating situation as they sell out as soon as they are in stock! Given we are only three months from Christmas, the toy aisles look very under-stocked across all ranges. In spite of the pandemic, the supermarkets (along with Amazon) have done very well out of it, which makes the toy situation appear even more baffling!
