Who else miss the OG mystery car from 2007 to 2010? I know I sure do

How the fuck does one not immediately open that, I'd rip it open while you blink
I was an collector and an odd kid back then
Funny enough that's one of the reasons they quit selling mystery cars like this. People kept opening them in the stores to make sure they didn't get a duplicate. So spres complained because people made a mess and kept stealing them.
Yeah, I end up finding lots of rip up package all over at my local dollar store. Eventually they end up putting them behind the counter and any cars that get taken out and left behind get into an mystery bag that you can buy for $5 to get 5 different cars
“No, I don't think I will”
Yeah, the bagged ones now just aren't the same :/
Yeah, you can definitely tell which cars are in the bagged ones. Just overall ruined the mystery of the cars
I do. I remember buying them at the 99 Cents stores when I was a little kid.
Same, Unfortunately this is the only one I kept in box and probably won't open it
I don’t blame you. I’m sure there are plenty of other ones out there, so we just have to keep looking.
Yeah, I'm definitely going to keep my eye out for some of them. Maybe open those one depending on the condition of the package
So with these, was there a way to tell what it was, like with the new mystery bag ones?
No really, the 2010 version of it has an smol hole on the back. But all you can really see is the paint and wheel while the earlier one is completely block off with no way of telling
I don't like the new ones because that serial code let's the scalpers know which ones are which.
If you're really good you can tell by the weight of the package. But that pretty much requires a scale since they are all so close, and you have to know how much the other cars in the series weigh.
Could you not figure out what car is is by the model id / casting code?
EDIT: You can, pretty easy but I won't say what it is in case OP doesn't want to know
I mean I don't really care too much, but it kinda ruined the fun tho. Lol
You didn't have to look!
I was just curious
OMG I loved these when I was a kid, I remember going to target and getting like 3 of these for getting a good grade in school XD
I miss them. I also have an unopened one.
Yooo This is crazy. I was just thinking about those. I was wondering if anyone had one mint in box.
LOL Your thought have came true! Quick! Think about winning an lottery ticket and go ahead and buy one!
They're great and all but when my parents would take me to the grocery when I was younger people would tear them open all the time. So many loose cars
