  • Recent Finds - 2018 and 2019 Store Finds and Purchases

    Please post your 2018 and 2019 store finds and purchases in this thread... many thanks!

    It's been brutally cold in the eastern Indiana area the last week or so and is going to continue to be so this week... the local Walmart finally put out a Cars dump bin on Christmas Eve... it contained the Taco/Cigalert/Fabulous Lightning McQueen case that was out 3 to 4 months earlier... Sigh.

    I did realize that I no longer had a complete set of the Walmart Movie Moments singles Demo Derby Cars so I bought McQueen as Chester Whipplefilter, Superfly, and Bill... I'll have to open them someday.

    I haven't been in a Target or Toys R US store for over 3 weeks.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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?
