    Thanks for the great information, rossibutton... I posted photos of the Super Chase and regular Cruz as Frances Beltline in a new thread on the main page.

    Nice finds on Scott Tiller and Tractor, Benbo.

    I'm still hoping to see that case in a store, boogity... I think worldwide Cars 3 items are not selling in the quantity or as quickly as Mattel and retailers anticipated.

    Slough Smyth's has bucket loads and it cant sell them, no one wants them. I can see these may end up like the star wars die cast ships... and end up in Poundland or Poundworld. There is just not the interest/demand anymore for these... these were once 2.99-3.69 and not that long ago. Just before Cars 2 came out. £6.50 is way too much money for a metal car, I have stopped collecting. Cant afford it.

    likewise mad bob, i,ve stopped too until the price comes way down, cant justify 5.99/ 6.50 on a car, its a pity because that new stuff in tescos was great but youve got to make a stand, the price in smyths is 5.99 and they have tons, havnt seen any 3 for 2s yet, I DID NOTICE MATER AND NATALIE ARE 4.99, they musnt sell anywhere!

    Seems to me the best value are the wee micro racers at two quid

    asda did go down to 4 quid but back up to 5.95 but they have nothing exciting.

    I really dont know why the prices are so high because the retailers must know they arent selling any

    At the moment i,m landscaping my railway so thats keeping me occupied

    lets just see what happens

    If you think the UK prices are high, they are typically €11.99 (Euros) in mainland Europe. That's about £11 (GBP). Ouch!

    Smyths toys now have the 965H case in stock, picked up 8 new cars there this morning, those being Broadside, Jimbo, Pushover, APB, Fishtail, Roscoe, Darren Leadfoot and Ernie Gearson.

    My local store got 3 cases in but there are still 12 unopened 965G cases plus whats already on the shelf. If they had any sense they'd put an offer on to try and shift them ?

    ru5ty has found that case h in asda, he mightnt be collecting but at least he,s looking, better still they were 4 quid, patience is a virtue

    I'm in the "not at that price" camp at the mo. I've made the exception for pcr's we don't have (or new variants anyway) but I've left all other new cars and abandoned the "get it because we don't have it" logic. I'm lucky that my son has no interest in any of the "junker" racer cars from that 5 minute segment of cars 3 (that seems to have spawned an almighty amount of merchandise!) anyway, so it's making this easy. I hope that the cars do indeed show up in poundshops or home bargains, it would seem they will at some point as all stores I visit seem to have copious amounts of cars 3 diecasts that they can't shift.
