This next lenticular case looks interesting with 4 NEW CARS (including 2 CHASE CARS) … which leads me to believe that it might be an endcap-sidekick for WM? (no assortment quantities). The reason I suspect is because of the two CHASES? But maybe since there are three Chase CARS left and only two cases, they […]
