    I enjoy Hot Wheels and these guys freak me out. You know what sucks?

    Hot Wheels has these Mystery Cars, packed in black bubbles, so you can't tell what it is. No, that's not what sucks. What sucks is that collectors knife 'em, or rip 'em open to see what they are. THEY ARE ONE DOLLAR TOYS PEOPLE. Just buy the damn thing and if you get a copy, oh well, trade it or give it to some kid.

    I've also had one or two guys badger me to bring a new case of Hot Wheels out. It's so -annoying-.

    Now I'm gonna enjoy my ripped open Ferrari. And zoom it and crash it off a table.

    If I ever see one of those hardcore Hot Wheels collectors, I will take the car they want off the shelf, buy it, rip the packaging to shreds, and play with the damn car in the mud in the parking lot!

    Mainly cause I have heard how anal and violent they can be >_<
    No offense to any hot wheels collectors here.

    Look for ones that say "Treasure Hunt" on them. They are the ones with the green stripe on the side.


    Yeah I hate the people who open the Mystery ones as well. I see them all the time.

    I know two guys who collect Hot Wheels and I see them at the local Targets each morning. One is more laid back about the other he is a nice guy and all, but get's a little worked up. Mostly they each look at one of the two Targets. Occasionally the laid back guy will look at the other Target. They both collect the Treasure Hunts. Once Laid back guy came over to the other Target and he found a Super Treasure Hunt (rare version of the 1-2 per case Treasure Hunt (out of about 72 per box. The Supers are like 1 to every 3-4 cases.) right in front of Guy #2. Well Guy #2 tries to say it is his and the laid back guy finds two regular ones and gives them to the guy. The guy #2 kinda bitched to me that Laid Back Guy had come over to his Target when he never goes over to the other guys. So I kinda had to listen to him bitch for a few days.

    Hot Wheel guys are nuts...

    When I used to work at Walmart, there was a old guy would come in every morning around 3 to 4 AM to check out the new Hot Wheels that arrived every morning. Sometimes there was several boxes of the toy sitting on the pallets unopen and he would try to open the boxes himself and we would tell him to keep his hands off. That old dude was addicted to them.

    One morning around 7 AM, I was going home and I saw him pulled up in the parking lot like a bat out of hell and he got out of his car and was running inside. He must have overslept.

    Thats fucking sick. I to have dealt with collectors who just keep egging you to go to the back and open more boxes geez. I also see the open mystery cars too. Like 99 cents is gonna bankrupt you or something.
