Thanks Dr. G. I feel like most are ending up in multi-packs eventually, and they're so much easier to store/display so I prefer them. But I don't want to miss singles now in hope they'll be out in box sets later.

Any word on upcoming cars toons 4 packs. Will they do any more for rescue squad or any for tokyo mater. I have all six and love the packaging. I'd rather have those then the individual cars.
I found a couple of the Heavy Metal Mater boxed sets this morning at a new Target near me, so that set is now out and hitting. It actually looks really cool so I paid the $30, even though it was only 4 cars. Yes, I got sucked in...
You've probably seen this around on the net, but there's also a 9-pack set out at Target (haven't seen it yet) with 5 already released racers and 4 new photographers/fans, I believe.
I also found Dr. Mater with Mask Up, Big Fan, as well as Komodo and the Ninjas. There was also one Lenticular Milton.
I've been on the prowl for Heavy Metal Mater, and the 9-pack. I just found the Octane Gain crew set which was a good pickup. I've been paying the upcharge because I find they're easier to store in the boxes.
I found the 9-pack this morning. The tag on the shelf said $29.99 but it rang up at $39.99. I told the cashier tag price and he made the adjustment without even needing to walk back there and see it for himself. No sign of the Octane Gain set yet, but I did see some of the Dinoco and HTB sets in the newer packaging, so there's hope yet.
I stopped by TARGET on the way home from work and spotted a new 9-car set that's exclusive to Target. It's $39.99 ($4.44 per car) and includes:
-Lightning McQueen (again)
-The King (again)
-Chick Hicks (again)
-Sidewall Shine no 74 (maybe new for you)
-Clutch Aid no 121 (maybe new for you)
-Dash Boardman (new photographer)
-Houser Boon (new photographer)
-Tim Rimmer (new photographer)
-Timothy Twostroke (new yelling McQueen fan)
Now... the box says "4 Exclusive Vehicles" so I'm guessing they're not going to release the cameramen and Timothy Twostroke carded?
The other day I DID see a carded lenticular eyes Tim Rimmer, but not sure of his normal eyed availability. I went ahead and bought this just in case, even though I didn't need 5 of the cars (that's $20!!)
