Hi Folks,
New to the forums. Looking for some assists in spotting cars in the Chattanooga area.
I live in Ooltewah, work in Cleveland, TN and travel to ATL once every three months.
For anyone looking, I picked up the Roger and Moon Mater set at the Kmart in Cleveland on Monday two were left! Please post if you come across some good stuff.

Just left the Cleveland, TN Kmart. Picked up the Colossus XXL w/LMQ micro drifter for $14.99. He's smaller than I thought he would be. 1 left on shelf near the motor oil. I also saw a few Hawk LMQ but not sure of the price.

So, I was up in NYC & NJ over the weekend and then flew back into ATL and during my time in those 3 states I went to 8 TRU's, 12 Walmart's, 6 Targets & 4 Kmart's. No new diecast except the Take Flights! It is my belief Mattels plan is to have at least 6 of LMQ's, FM, Mater & FB each in every household due to how many I seen keeping the pegs warm. Now I did score a Mel Dorado, Pinion Tanaka and Kingpin Nobunaga all of which have eluded me somehow. If you are looking for Kingpin, the Kennesaw, GA TRU had 5 left.

My Son and I went in the Gunbarrel TRU tonight and were excited to see the pegs full were as last week they were half empty. Found 4 Don Grumlins but no other new vehicles. There were new Holly's, Maters, Nigel's and Max's so I think this is case E or G. Two weeks ago I snagged Don, Becky, and murakarmi but no Victor or Petrov from same store. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Cleveland, TN Report:
Walmart – restocked shelves of singles but nothing new. They had "new" Holly's, Sarge's, Nigel's and Max's if ya still need em! ;-). Oddly the $1.97 sale is over too however the Spytrain carrier, Stephenson train w/ Mater, Photo Finish Set and Siddely action agent set were all on sale for $17.

Kmart- Pegs were bare. They have micro Drift speedway but no drifter packs!?!

Target – only thing new were drifters packs, speedway and Mac.

Anyone else in the area see new merch showing up?

Tom,
Thanks for posting in my solo forum! I guess I'm the only person in southern TN/north GA area that comes on Take 5.
Happy Hunting

I just made the rounds in Hamilton on my way South and saw that TRU had a stock list posted on the Cars endcap that lists the RS Classics singles and 3 packs. The Piston Cup 500 and V8 Cafe were already on shelf. The sheet also listed Air Mater 3 pack along with Moon Mater w/ DVD and more take flight singles. Leave some for me folks!
Nothing new at WM or Target.

Looks like the Dalton, GA WM is about to reset as well. Almost all of the diecast are gone and a stock sheet was posted for implementation this week listing singles, 2 packs, take flights and moon mission. Hopefully I'll catch something new on my way back Friday.

I'm not sure what anyone else has been seeing but when I got back looks like WM just restocked but with old cases. Target had nothing new and TRU was sold out of the RS Classics. No new Cars 2 singles.

I stopped in the Hixson and Hamilton TRU's. I saw the RS Spinout 3 pack for the first time. Both had the 2 for 6.99 sale on diecast but still alot of Finns. No new diecast found. No luck at Target or WM either. If they are putting something new, folks are snatching them up quick. It would be nice to get a report from others about what is arriving in the area.

It doesn't really look like there are many collectors around your area ghostlight (or at least on this website). I wish there was someone relatively close to my area as well, it would be fun to report back and forth what we've found.. Frown

 

Nevertheless, have fun collecting! Smile

Hey Fillmore,
Collecting with little guy is always except that now he's asking for the "yellow and green Francesco"(Rip C.). No thanks to youtube, Lol his 4 yr old cant undertsand it's not in stores here yet.
With the way new stuff flies off the shelf, there has to be plenty of collectors. The reason I joined T5 was from recommendations of at least three folks I talked to in the Cars aisle.
I may have a new T5 friend in southern GA.
Thanks & happy hunting,
