    I found PT Flea and Alloy Hemberger at one of 5 Target stores that I went to this week... unfortunately other Target stores had old cases with repeats.

    I've found next to nothing new at the few Walmart stores I checked out... One had 8 Deluxe Finn McMissile with Breather but no sign of new singles.

    Sunday I checked out a few stores in the northwest suburbs of Cincinnati (Ohio) and Monday I checked out 16 stores in the Dayton (Ohio) area... here are some of my finds:

    Most Walmart stores have the Road Trippin Mack:


    None of the other new trailer packs (Sarge and Sheriff) were available yet.

    I found these at a Target store yesterday:


    I found these at a different Target - this is the first time I've seen these 2 packs in a store:


    Meijer now has pegs for Deluxe! I saw and left Alexis Wheelson and Craig Faster... they also had the Brad/Darla/Coriander case:


    Target no longer has shelf space for the Carnival Cup racers 4 pack boxed set.

    Target has a Piston Cup Garage gift pack for $19.99 - Walmart has one for $19.97... The Target one is a better deal as it includes 2 Cars (McQueen and FHH) and the Walmart set only has a McQueen - I'll add photos - Photobucket is acting strange right now.
    Target:


    Walmart:


    At 3 TRU stores I found the Back in Time Gift Pack and bought several... I also found the Easter Cars at 1 Dayton TRU yesterday:


    I also saw the Wheel Action 3 pack but left it:

    As I headed back from southern Indiana on Thursday, I made a few stops:

    Walmart: Super Chase J Low Lee


    Target: Jason Hubkap (left Towga Gremlin, MA Brake Drumm, and Alex Machino)


    Toys R US: Easter Lightning McQueen and Easter Mater


    I bought 5 picks at a guitar store - I looked for my capo and guitar picks last Sunday and couldn't find them... I guess I haven't used them since we moved into our house almost 3 years ago.

    Nice score! It seems like most employees are ignoring that unrealistic date.

    Still looking for the Easter Cars? You might want to be on the lookout for these green bins at Toys R US stores... in with the Easter section at an Indianapolis TRU last night:



    See the blank bin between the Rocket Balloons and the Peppa Pig? I found these face down:


    The first 2 I turned over and pulled out were Mater... and then 2 McQueen... and then finally the Easter Buggy and Ramone.

    And the best part was they finally fixed the system and removed the bogus 4/30/17 street date that had been preventing people or making it very hard for people to buy them.
