Picked up a few Hotwheels tonight. I really like these updated packaging with the actual car art on the front. The old ones I have all had the same generic card art.
Regarding Hotwheels collecting, I just collect whatever I see and like. I don't keep up with the latest release or anything. I have a small set of HW that I have open and have on my shelf. But due to limited shelf space, I have about 30 cars still in their cards. With the older ones that have the generic art, I decided to just staple them together vertically with only the car in the plastic bubble showing. I know that is probably a stupid way to display them as it degrades the value of them. But I never intended on reselling any of them so it doesn't matter to me. However, with these newer packaging, I can't bring myself to staple them like I did with the generic packaging. So I have to think of a way to display them. I don't want to use pins either since these are small items and I would end up with a dozen holes on my walls. Will probably go with a setup similar to how Little Plastic Man displayed his Joes.
I just looked through the 2009 line and there's 10 others that I want to get. Time to start hunting!
