I've got 10-12 Thing Hotwheels and Matchbox cars hanging in their packages on my garage wall. I saw this one...does anyone have it? I could not pay that much for a toy Thing but I thought it interesting. Not sure if its a real Mattell toy either?

The ad says
"Car disassembled, customized, resealed on custom card. Back of the card is blank."

So it isn't an actual Mattel made Hot-Wheels

My daughter got me a display case for the Matchbox/Hot Wheels and Johnny Lightning I have been collecting over the years.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.



I have two more that I haven't put in the display case yet and know of a couple more that I don't have yet.

I had all of mine in the boxes and then thought "Why shouldn't I enjoy them", so I ripped them open.

Opening the first one was the hardest. Granted I have duplicates of many of them and definitely saved the boxes.

They make a nice Christmas tree ornament.

I have them as cabinet knobs in my garage. 99 cents or $2-3 for hardware store knobs. I also have a collection of over 200 181/Thing toys. When new Hotwheels or Matchbox are in the stores I buy all I can find and give them to kids at shows.
