I used to be. It's been a long time since I owned any Hot Wheels.

Um Caulin is but he can't really talk to you intelligently about. He just knows which ones he thinks look cool.

Oh, I used to LOVE Hot Wheels. But, nope I don't collect them.

I do, but I don't do it for collectors value or anything, I just like some of the cars

Me too. I've never been one of those that can "collect" something, simply for the value of it, especially if that means keeping them inside their little blister packs, etc. Nope, I have to open them up, check them out. i used to collect, years ago, but all the ones i had in junior high/high school were lost sometime between when I went to college (they stayed behind) and that house was sold (my little brother got to them). I started back up again, last year or so.

Yeah, I had to play with the item. I just couldn't resist. Voltron in a box? Yeah right!

Wow, I used to be as well. Good news, the ranks of the evolved keep growing. In fact I am having it endoctrined into the PLDC (Primary Leadership Development Course) program here. Teaching other soldiers how to be leaders, and to let them know, TINB.

I had a lot when I was a kid. Fortunately, my parents didn't throw them out. I recently salvaged two collecting cases from their basement. It was interesting to see that I had doubles of a few. One for displaying and one for playing, as most of the doubles were totally beaten up. I never kept them in the blister pack, as those were too awkward to store anyway. I really miss the old school yellow box packaging.
