      • Someone restocked when I wasn't looking. Not many but different to anything this store has had previously. I wonder which ones disappeared before I got there. I may have bought one or two ( ok, 5 ) home with me.

          Wow Skwerl, I think that batch was from around Christmastime 2018 , It's great you got a chance for some new models you missed out on that's for sure, but it must have been a case or cases forgotten in the back of their warehouse.😃

            That is a great haul! And those two 9-packs are awesome. It looks like your WM gets stuff in pretty quick after release date.

              Late last year they had a stack of camouflage vehicles appear. I thought they were a brand new release, not having seeen them before, but a bit research showed they were a very old release too. Weird, but fun for a new collector like me.

              • These shots are from Renys, a small chain in Maine. They always have a good Matchbox spread but unfortunately nothing new. Not seen are 9 packs and playsets that are on shelves in the aisle.

                  They have a lot of Matchbox peg room, just what I like to see! Did you end up buying anything?

                  What Renys is this?

                  • This is the Rt 1 Wells Renys. This should have been our week in Wells but Covid messed all that up. My brother in law sent me the pictures to rub in the fact that he's there and I'm not. A couple of years ago they had tons of stuff i hadn't been able to find so i travelled around and hit 6 or 7 different Rents.

                    • Wow what a large amount of Matchbox they carry at that Renys, old batches, but a lot of cars, they probably sell well there.
                      Around here we're stuck with WMs restock periodically, occasionally Target, every so often Dollar Tree, and Dollar general maybe twice annually.

                          Awesome find! Congrats! They come in cases of 6 with 2 of each vehicle per case, so someone else must of already gotten the other set.

                              LOL, says a lot about the supply chain at this store! I am waiting for the batch with the '71 MGB .....ANYWHERE in a bricks and mortar setting, and I see that the batch after that is already appearing online.

                                Wow, you're still waiting for that batch? It's been almost 3 months since it was released and my local Walmart has already gotten in several shipments of it, so I'm super surprised yours hasn't yet! What, are they just re-stocking the U batch over and over or are they not getting anything in at all?

                                And yes, Mix 5 (Case W) is being released right now. Was supposed to be early July but got delayed.
