        And from what I've heard, not all Red, #12, are Metallic (Ransburg) paint Red... I saw a full box and bought #12 - it was a regular Red.

        Thanks for your post, boogity!


        As I posted elsewhere, thanks to my local HW friend, I got a next gen Jackson Storm Hauler yesterday... I also went to the store at 9:15 last night and found an unopened singles case Q - I had it opened and bought the Scavenger Hunt Metallic Ryan Shields.

          • Checked the local Walmart at lunch today... it paid off... first time I've seen 2020 2 packs...


            Here's what I bought... I have some coming in a package that hopefully arrives next week.


            The Waitress Mia and Tia are supposed to be unibody variants... I'll have to verify.

            I bought the Hydraulic Ramone single - I intend to use a Fan Favorites Team 95 Ramone with the Hydraulic Ramone body to create custom Hydraulic Team 95 Ramone once I pick up a single - I'm going to keep my Fan Favorites 4 pack in the box.

            Good luck hunting!

            • Stopped at Meijer this morning before work... was shocked to find my best store finds in a long, long time on the pegs... the "missing" made in China Scavenger Hunt Case... I paid $15 each (shipped) for Cruz, Cal, and Jackson last fall on eBay... they'd been found at a handful of Target stores but hadn't been found in months.


              Cal Weathers with Rubber Tires



              Chick Hicks with Rubber Tires and Trophy - the hood says Chick Hicks and not Hostile Takeover Bank.



              Cruz with Rubber Tires



              Jackson Storm with Rubber Tires





              Scavenger Hunt Marilyn is the Made in China metallic version which is different from the Made in Thailand version... I didn't have this Car before today... there's 1 in the case... there are 2 each of the other 4 Scavenger Hunt Cars with rubber tires in the case.

              The rest of the case of 18 includes 1 Conrad Camber, 1 Rich Mixon, 1 Guido/Luigi, 2 Mater, and 4 assorted Lightning McQueen Cars.

              I was just so excited to see these this morning... I'll check more stores in the coming week(s) and have friends looking as well... they've been on Amazon but temporarily out of stock for months (at least 6 months if not longer).

                  You never know what might turn up! Bentalls (Fenwicks) were stocking the Mud Racer singles. That was a surprise.

                  • This isn't so much a find, but a list of the 2018-2019 Cars that haven't appeared in the UK. If anyone can correct this, please feel free to do so! It's possible that some singles, Florida Ramone, Tom W. and Honk Cho may have appeared at Disney Stores in limited numbers?

                    • If there are to be no more 2018-2019 singles released in the UK, my final tally purchased was 78 singles. That was many more than I had intended to purchase, especially as many of them were £7.50 (GBP). I really like the card design, possibly my favourite so far, plus the excellent quality of those made in Thailand, encouraged me to buy almost the whole of some of the cases!

                      I'm warming to the 2020 card design, but I can't help thinking that Mattel should've continued with the 2018-2019 design to complete all outstanding touted cars.

                      It's really encouraging to see some new posters on here. It's even more encouraging that there are new collectors too!

                        Cases 976D and 976E were UK only assortments.

                        • Thanks for the info niftynigel! I picked up Leroy Heming for £3.99 from b&m this week. I'm trying to collect one of every car since made in Thailand!
