How the fuck does one not immediately open that, I'd rip it open while you blink


Thegameguy12

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.


Thegameguy12

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


Goldenart121

Open it


Thegameguy12

“No, I don't think I will”


Leadfootsl2

Yeah, the bagged ones now just aren't the same :/


Thegameguy12

Yeah, you can definitely tell which cars are in the bagged ones. Just overall ruined the mystery of the cars


Wompy_Dompy

I do. I remember buying them at the 99 Cents stores when I was a little kid.


Thegameguy12

Same, Unfortunately this is the only one I kept in box and probably won't open it


Wompy_Dompy

I don’t blame you. I’m sure there are plenty of other ones out there, so we just have to keep looking.


Thegameguy12

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


mcbergstedt

So with these, was there a way to tell what it was, like with the new mystery bag ones?


Thegameguy12

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


mcbergstedt

Ah okay. I don't like the new ones because that serial code let's the scalpers know which ones are which.


Reincarnatedpotatoes

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.


TLGYT

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


Thegameguy12

I mean I don't really care too much, but it kinda ruined the fun tho. Lol


TLGYT

You didn't have to look! I was just curious


Maineak400

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


JonToyCars

I miss them. I also have an unopened one.


gino_t2121

Yooo This is crazy. I was just thinking about those. I was wondering if anyone had one mint in box.


Thegameguy12

LOL Your thought have came true! Quick! Think about winning an lottery ticket and go ahead and buy one!


Captain__Sterling

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
