    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.

    Made a relatively short and quick Cars hunt today... I bought nothing at my first 3 Walmart stores... bought nothing at 5 Walgreens stores but did see a couple I would have bought had I not already had them... I bought nothing at 2 Target stores but did discover new DPCI numbers for 2018 diecasts... my best finds were a Precision Series Cozy Cone for $39.99 at a Tuesday Morning store and some singles at Walmart #4.


    (Walmart #4 purchases)


    (Target DPCI for the Brick/Cal 2 pack)


    (Cozy Cone at home, lit up)


    Walgreens finds - got excited when I saw Mario but then realized it was not the Scavenger Hunt version.

    Nice find, SamB2003!

    A friend of mine found the Sgt Highgear Deluxe case at a small town Walmart in eastern Indiana this morning (May 15, 2018)... he bought Sgt Highgear and the Blimp.

    Went to Target on Mother’s Day yesterday afternoon, and saw a lot of singles, like the Bubba/Chase case, APB, and Cases A and B. Anyways, I scored four mini racers from Wave 3, which are Cal Weathers, Dinoco Cruz Ramirez, Smokey, and Dirt Track McQueen.

    May 12, 2018... Made a trip to and around Dayton today... 29 stores total... Some had found Scavenger Hunt Mario Andretti at Walgreens... I only found Cars at 4 of 8 but did find and buy these at the 2nd of 8 Walgreen's I went to today:



    At 1 of 3 Meijer I did find the 2018 2 packs... without tape holding the blister to the cardback... bought the 2 Gabriel/Aiden.



    Nothing worth buying at 4 Kroger Marketplace, 4 Walmart, 3 Target, 2 Tuesday Morning (reports of Precision Series Cozy Cone for $39.99), 2 Marshall's (Radiator Springs Classic singles have been found), AutoZone,... also stopped at 2 Toys R US stores... nothing worth buying... I'm kind of sad thinking that I may never buy anything at Toys R US again.

    They better re-release the movie galactically then... I think demand within this solar system is at an end. E.T. please buy our peg warmers!

    Went to a small town 30 miles from home after church yesterday... after lunch at a great local Mexican restaurant, I went to the local Walmart... Found and bought 2 Maddy McGear with mini-poster... those were the closest Cars to new Cars... all 2017 Cars 3 singles, 2 packs,, and Movie Moment singles... 5 packs were Demo Derby and the Piston Cup 5 pack with SynerG... Haulers were Wally and Bobby Swift hauler... I did not see any Deluxe.... I'd like to see 2018 singles and deluxe in stores.

    And to answer your question, GotFrank, my guess is there are still tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of Cars 3 Lightning McQueen singles waiting to be sold.

    Thanks Chris

    Also, I sometimes go to the TRUs in my area (which won’t close where I live apparently), and when I get to the Cars section, they’’re just full of 2017 Cars 3 Case A. I wish they stocked with something new ;-;

    Nice finds, SamB2003... it's always sweet to find new Cars in a store - you've found several Cars that I've yet to see in stores and possibly never will.
