    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 quick trip to Indianapolis on Friday night to meet our youngest son, his wife, and their 2 young children... one the way home I stopped at a small town Walmart... it turned out to be a good decision.



    This is the first time I've seen that case of 2 packs in a store... This Spikey/Eric 2 pack is my favorite 2 pack of 2018,beating out the Gabriel/AIden 2 trainee 2 pack.

    I bought the Flo/Ramone 2 pack as they are supposedly variants... same with the Deluxe Frank Pinkerton... I'll check later.

    I also saw and left the new Brick Yardley launcher... I'm only buying the launchers if it's a Car I don't have in my collection... I have Brick Yardley and Lightning McQueen - I'm not buying the launchers... Speedy Comet, Floyd Mulvihill, and Brian Spark were first releases of Cars - I bought the launchers.

    These have finally made it to Walmart stores in the Midwest US... my local Hot Wheels friend bought them at the local Walmart for me earlier this morning.



    Now to find more new singles and 2 packs.

    Smyths's stores in the UK have a new case of singles that includes the Scavenger Hunt Dino Draftsky, Adam Parke, Carl Clutchen (Easy Idle), and the 2 trainees.

    The Thailand Markus supposedly has a brighter paint job (all the Thailand Cars do from what I've been told)... the eyes are also different.

    I'll try to do side by side comparison photos after I open them - I've been busy with lawn mower repair and trying to get our central air conditioner system working the last 2 week - the mower is fixed but not the AC... probably going to have to replace both the AC and furnace - both are 28 years old.

    Just got Shriram from Target today! Only need four more cars from Case R now (Tailgate, Rust-eze Cruz Ramirez, Marilyn and Race Tow Truck Tom.)
    What all is in case R? Is there an up to date case listing list on here?

    I found Marilyn at Target in Lakewood ohio today. Any idea what case she is in? It wouldn't even ring up in the target system.

    Made a quick trip to SW Ohio this morning... bought Cars at 3 of 4 Walmart stores... nothing new at the 1 Target or 1 Meijer that I stopped at - Target had gotten in another of the 2017 cases with Taco! The Thomasville Cars have yet to be distributed at most Walmart stores and the Fireball Beach Cars sold out at Target weeks ago and have not been restocked... still no sign of the newest Target 11 pack either.

    Here are today's finds and purchases:
    Walmart 1:


    Walmart 2:


    I bought the Speedy Comet Launcher and Frank at Walmart 3; left a Speedy Comet at Walmart 4.


    All in all, my best day Cars shopping in a long time.
    Eaton Walmart All purchases Hoke Rd Walmart
