    Recent Finds - 2018 Store Finds and Purchases

    Please post your 2018 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.

    Congratulations on finding Charlie Cargo on 2018 card, SamB2003... even though I have only seen 3 2018 singles in stores in my county, I've seen Deluxe and 2 packs... Hopefully we all see new Cars soon.

    I made a quick trip to SW Ohio after church today... I had my best Cars day in a while...


    I stopped at 3 O'Reilly Auto Parts, 4 Walmart, 1 Target, 1 Meijer, and 1 Kroger... I'd never seen Florida Ramone in a store so I bought it at the first O'Reilly... and then saw it without a collector card at 3 Walmarts... the 2nd Walmart had a Speedy Comet, Thomasville Jackson Storm, Scavenger Hunt McQueen, and Rich & Sheldon... Walmart 3 had Tom W, Rich, & Sheldon... I left a Scavenger Hunt McQueen at Kroger - it was $4.99 and the card was not good... I had hoped to find the new 11 pack at Target but they didn't have it... all in all it was a good Cars day... even though the regular singles at Walmart were now $3.72 plus tax each (they had been $3.47 each since the launch of Cars 3 toys back in 2017).

    Scored Charlie Cargo (2018 card) yesterday at Myer! The only 2018 cars we’ve got in Australia so far is the Deluxes. Hope singles arrive soon.

    Found at the local Meijer before work this morning...


    I bought the Tailgate/Pushover 2 pack and the Dinoco Crew Chief Pitty 2 pack - the Dinoco 2 pack may turn into a custom Rev N Go Crew Chief and pitty.

    I left the Deluxe - I have them all already and don't care about cardbacks.

    I found these 2 new 3 packs at the local Walmart this evening, July 25, 2018





    No Thomasville Legends singles... no new singles... no Speedy Comet launcher... no variant 5 packs... at least I found something new in the store.

    Congratulations on finding the new Deluxe case K Cars, sbdolan! I've seen them at only 1 Walmart store myself.

    Great finds, sbdolan! Congratulations! I've seen that case twice and it's a great feeling to find new Cars that you need.

    Found and bought a Radiator Springs Fillmore at the local TJ Maxx Sunday night... I think it's a variant based on eye expression... still no sign of a Precision Series Fabulous Lightning McQueen at any TJ Maxx or Marshalls that I've been to... for newer collectors, that was the Kmart mail-in promo from the summer of 2017 Cars Collector Event.

    Went on what was going to be a fairly short Cars hunt yesterday... due to construction and detours it added a couple hours to my trip... I did find and/or buy a few things:

    Singles purchased at Walmart stores 1 and 2:

    This was the first time I've seen Conrad Camber and Sheldon Shifter in a store.

    Deluxe from Walmart #1 and Jocko Flocko Mack Hauler from Walmart #3:


    TJ Maxx #3 purchases:

    This was the first time I've seen the RSC Primer McQueen single in a store - the Wave 3 minis came from a Meijer.

    I saw the 3 packs at Kroger Marketplace store #2... I left them all.


    Both Target stores had nothing new in the way of Cars but I did get a free Hot Wheels car at the first Target Hot Wheels collector event - the HW people were upset that it wasn't exactly like the Kmart HW events have been with new cases.

    Ran over to Target/Walgreen's/Marshall's on my lunch break in Rocky River Ohio. Target had restocked on old 2017 singles. They did have some 2018 two packs and deluxe's. Marshall's had nothing but old 2017 cars, as did Walgreens.

    Made a quick run to the Dayton area yesterday afternoon... 3 Meijer, 3 Walmart, 2 Kroger, 1 Marshalls, and 1 Target... Cars purchases - 0... One Kroger had some 2018 singles that I didn't have, but I already had the Cars on other cardbacks and at $4.99 each I left them... 2 of the 3 Walmart stores had new deluxe cases but it was the Arvy/Miss Fritter/Charlie Cargo case... there's always next time.

    Awesome find on the Cozy Cone, Raginpage! Congratulations!
