A friend and I were talking today about Hot Wheels stuff and the idea of buying the full "wholesale" Mattel boxes came up. We had both seen the unboxing videos like on RaceGrooves but he asked how you buy one, and I had to say I didn't know (and then I was ashamed and cried).
So simple question...how and where do you get an unopened box?
And I'm talking about how to get one direct, not through another retailer. My assumption is you have to be some reseller or wholesaler, but maybe not?
I was able to order a full case of Hot Wheels directly from KMart's web site! When the KMart Collector Days are announced you can usually order online...if they're not already sold out. Since KMart's are pretty rare in most places, people just order online instead of going to the in-store events. They go fast so keep an eye out for on-sale dates.
You can watch my unboxing of a case that ordered from KMart below.
