Yes I popped by my local Poundland last night, and the overstocks had a box of the F case sitting there. I checked, it had barely been emptied, and only 2 models were pulled out. The Dodge, Skyline, Tuk-Tuk and Evora came home with me to check for variations. Sadly, there wasn't anything to models I had previously had shipped over from USA as those were dated K02, and these new ones were K04. Obviously only a 2-week production time difference doesn't often pull up much in the way of variations. But I was really hoping for one on the Dodge (there have been a lot of shades found in USA). But I did notice there were 2 of the '95 Chevy Van in the box, and both had the spare wheel back end. The random bike vs spare wheel rear of the model doesn't always guarantee one of each per box.

My local Asda has just restocked with batch G again, but the next one over has jumped up to batch K. The one beyond that is still waiting for a new delivery.

:) :D :P

Glad to see Batch F is turning up in much bigger quanties at Poundland than first time around as I did actually see the remnants of one back in the Summer at one of their stores but found only the Tuk Tuk. Ive so far visited two stores with Batch F and all the Chevy Ambulances had a bike at the rear and that totals six whereas it was pretty much 50/50 when sold at ASDA as Batch G.
A local ASDA I visited today actually had FOUR full cases of H and K on the top shelf and shows that there is onviously a lot of stock around, somehow common sense prevailed and I left them unopened as ive already bought loads over the last week or so!! ;-)

2017 Case L found in Asda today including Datsun 510 and Dodge Viper, the latter carryover from previous case but did not appear in the UK.

Home Bargains had the boxed models as well which was good to see, but sadly they seem to be a one off

Of 2017 Case L? I've only seen Case F in boxes at our local Home Bargains.

I suspect he means the Power Grabs models in general as I've not seen anything more recent than Case F in the many Home Bargains stores I've visited.
As a side note, does anyone know if the orange Pontiac Firebird has made it into UK Case L which has just hit ASDA? I've found everything else but not this.

No. There is no Pontiac. I opened a fresh case and there was not one included.

The Asda cases are a weird old mixture. You may have to check out Poundland in the next few months for some of the missing models.
