Thanks to other posters on T5AD we picked up our very own Hudson Hornet Piston Cup Lightning McQueen at Kohl's yesterday. This is now our favorite McQ model and would have been VERY hard to find had we had to search through the pegs for it at Target or TRU. Hopefully these side-by-side photos will help anyone that has peer into the dark recesses of back pegs trying to find an HHPC from among all the Racing Wheel McQueens.

 

PS The two Lightning McQueen packs hanging down behind are 1:55 pull-backs, not diecasts.

Once again, its 1 piece! My faith is starting to regain on collecting these days, after my L&S Fillmore at a gas station to a Pope + PopeMobile at Wal-Mart. But sadly, the Wal-Mart in my hometown is so cluttered with everything that nothing new will make it's way in stores, especially 2 packs. I will have to check Kohl's soon, and make a quick stop at TJmaxx, because they are right next door to each other.

I too found the Hudson Hornet Piston Cup Lightning McQueen at Kohl's today. I was worried that I'd miss it if it was mixed in with the clogged pegs of regular McQueens. There were only a couple of them at Kohl's and easy to spot. Yesterday I found Maserati & Lewis Hamilton at another Kohl's. If it weren't for reports on here about finding them, I probably wouldn't have checked Kohl's. Thanks guys Laugh

 

The HH Piston Cup McQueen is really nice. It seems heavier than the Cars 2 McQueen. Maybe because it doesn't have as much plastic since it's a one piece die cast.

That's very interesting that two Kohls in the same area each got a different, new case. Nice find!

…And here I thought I was done searching my area for a while.  I'd better cough up some gas money now.  Thanks a lot, Micky. Wink

Cool, thanks for the spotter's guide, John!

I will be on the hunt tomorrow. If I find multiples I will snag a few for the Utes.

We visited four Kohl's on Friday. Two had the new Lightning (4 cars at each), the other two did not. None had Carlo or plastic tire Lewis.
A fifth store is closer to our house than the rest, but it is such a nightmare in there we never bother with that location.
Happy hunting.

Thanks John, for the awesome and timely pictures, and Micky for scoop on the multiple case scenario!  2 out of 5 Kohls in my area of Chicago had recently stocked the Lewis/Carlo case.  1 out of those 5 had freshly stocked the Hudson Hornet Piston Cup McQueen/Miguel case (contents do match the "case M" assortment Met had posted a while back).  The remaining 2 stores (Willow and Touhy) are a total wreck with nothing new on the pegs (so maybe they'll be next to receive 1 of the 2 new cases).  I'll let ya'll know if there are any extras after taking care of the Chi-town peeps….

Per Met, BMW, and viewing actual stock, it's from this case:

Case M:

3 x # 1: Race Team Mater

3 x # 2: Finn McMissile

1 x # 3: Lightning McQueen With Racing Wheels

2 x # 4: Francesco Bernoulli

1 x # 6: Professor Z single

2 x # 7: Jeff Gorvette

1 x # 8: Carla Veloso

1 x # 9: Raoul Çaroule

1 x # 16: Rod Torque Redline
1 x #19: Hydraulic Ramone
1 x #20: Nigel Gearsley
2 x #21: Max Schnell
1 x #23: Miguel Camino
4 x #26: Hudson Hornet Piston Cup Lightning McQueen

but some Kohls are getting the J Case instead, with:

3 X LEWIS HAMILTON (first appearance of correct teeth with plastic tires)
3 X CARLO MASERATI

Mike,

Do you know what is in case J besides the Lewis & Carlo?

I found HHLMQ today, but no Miguel. A lot of the others in this case listing weren't there either. Someone else bought them or they didn't shelve the whole case…
