Do You Leave Them in the Package or Do You Take Them Out and Play With Them?

By Rob Einaudi


Bought a few Hot Wheels last week. I almost always take them out, but the packaging on the Super Bee and Corvette Grand Sport are pretty cool. More pics after the jump. And which one do you like best?

Open them up and arrange them beautifully on a shelf(desk, coffee table,whatev). But to each their own.

the ones that i think are cool or worth some sort of money in the future i leave in the pakage(like first series) other wise i take them out to dispaly them like a trophy but i also will bye them in twos if at all possible

I always took them out and played with them. My dad collects hotwheels and has tons of them, all in the box. He asked if I had my old hot wheels and I did; he went through and found a few good ones(which happened to be the ones he took out of the box and played with). Like a hotwheels Boss Mustang from 1970, turned out to be worth a little bit of money.

I like the white Super Bee the best. I accumulated quite a few of these back in the day… I took them all out of the package and subjected them to a thorough beating, except for a C6 Corvette. You can see a little bit of my collection on page 7 of my Voyager ride page…

I always buy them in 2 one I open and display the other I leave in the package.

Some you gotta leave, I got a few un opened spectraflame cars, but I bought a ’66 Mustang race car so i can play with my little bro and not care what happens! lol.

I take them out and play with them. Why? Because in most cases, that’s the closest I’m ever going to get to driving one.

Play with them! It doesn’t matter if they get scratched: at least you had fun!

I take them out.
Dontplay with them though, just put them on display.
But my favorite is the Hotwheels “prototype 12″

The new packaging with the car artwork on the card is for the 2009 lineup with some 2008 releases sharing the design. I have been collecting Hot Wheels since I was a kid and still do. I have First Edition sets (average 40 cars/year) from 1999 to present and thousands of other Hot Wheels all still in the packaging!

I haven’t bought any hotwheels/matchbox since I was a kid, but fuck leaving them in the package, I’d take em out and play with the bastards. I really like that superbee.

I meant my Page 8 on the 2007 Charger page.

Jan 26, 2009 at 7:32 am

For collecting, I get one, If it’s one I really like, Got to have that extra to hold in my hands. I love the 2009 Hot Wheels packages.
But for die hard details on the cars, Greenlight of Johnny Lightning make the best! Check out my Page 7 for some I have found.

Sadly this is the only way to be able to buy a new car anymore.

Jan 26, 2009 at 5:23 am

I always leave mine in the pack, but yeah, I do the same thing with the really cool ones, buy two open one.

Jan 26, 2009 at 4:21 am

I agree with waytofurious…….buy 2 and play with 1(Camaro!)

Jan 26, 2009 at 3:26 am

I like the Super Bee the best. It’s easy when faced with the packaging dilemma. Buy 2, leave one in the package and take out the other.
