Share your hw hunting stories..

Recommended Posts

I think would be fun to read different stories from playaz here when they were huntin'. Please note hunting i don't mean just huntin' for greens, whatever happened while you guys are at the store finding some hotwheels, from your encounter with insiders or another fellow collector, or just anything. Feel free to share! Anyway as one of those who hunts alot, me got many experiences to write too. But for now i'll just share one that happened recently, truly epic.

As i walked inside Kelana Jaya Giant (just random hunt as that place is known to be dry of new stuff for like a year?) that Giant speaker starts playing something very familiar..

"Were no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do i
A full commitments what Im thinking of
You wouldnt get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how Im feeling
Gotta make you understand

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you"


WHAT!! DAMMIT undercoverbrother had successfully got RickRoll'd by Giant store! DAMN!

Very close to my home, the restock there very fishy, very few cars on the pegs, and the most I see the new ones are from Matchbox, usually stocks are slow moving over there, but when it does restock, very few new cars on the peg, like 3-5 only, the rest are blimps & ford lo-boy, not even dragtor, and on several cases, notice nice cars are hidden behind HW playset, Scrabble and stuff, I don't know who did this, but damn the restock very fishy....feels like.....got........i*****r

apalah u all...

i can go on about 7E stories utill nex year..

but i'll share one for now..

during my stay at JB in december, i went hunting during the 7E promo. i went to a certain 7E where the new stuff was already hanging on the racks.. then suddenly the manager came up to me and asked, cari hijau ke?
i said ya. y? he said this round got no hijau. but he got one from another store already so, no need to go. i said oh really ah.
then i asked if i cud see the TH he got. he went in n brought out reg viper, reg mustang and reg funnycar. so i asked him if he was willing to sell any of them, he said his fren asked him to keep.

then 7 months and 2 promos later, i returned to the same 7E.. n again the same guy comes up to me n adrian n cham n says takde hijau lagi la.. so i asked him to go bring out again n he brought out the same 3 pcs but with a bagger this time. so meaning got 4 th.
he said he wanna let go of them cuz his fren dun wan it anymore.. i saw the card already not mint so i said i also dun wan n said 'hijau tak bergitu berharga pun' n gave him back his 4 greens.

thanks for sharing your story mr demonicle. I think the manager will be stunned by your declines to take up those thunt. Afterall he think even though not in mint condition, someone willing to buy it in such condition. sweat

Well my hunting story is not about prices or seeing other collectors....
My best hunting stories always involves my oldest.

It's fun when I go hunting with him and we get to talk about the different cars. What we like and what we don't like! He's into muscle cars and I only gather Acceleracers related cars.

But my Mommy pride swells up when he spots something I haven't!
I love that time with him. Kids grow so fast, I totally cherish these moments. I'm pretty sure they're going to last once he hits his teens and beyond, but you never know!

There's nothing fishy, the 'insider' is not really an insider but one funny dude who set cars up that way, like 1-2 pcs per hook. Once upon a time number of Giants received like 20 Chrysler cases, really bad move, but still possible to clear though may take longer. But when i came across this Giant and see that dude stocking up i know this gonna take long, long time to finish, and i was right. Btw don't ask me how's the chryslers doing is there any supers or what cause i didn't hoard check them, i know that dude too not really bothered to take out the greens.

The Insider Stories

(some dialogue lines translated to english for convenient reading, and i will never reveal identities of any characters here so if somehow anyone involved reading this no worries hehe)

#1 Takkan Melayu Hilang Di Dunia

Location - One of known hunting ground black spots
Time - Months ago

As i'm wandering around trying to 'sniff' the new stocks our beloved friend popped out..
"You want that?"
"Urm.. yeah?"
*goes to his secret stash and bring out a reg*
"Thanks bang, but i already have that"
"No prob"
"Anyway just wondering if that's what i'm looking for.."
"For you RMxx"
"For me RMxx?"
"Yeah cause we both Malay, normally that regular Chinese dude i charge RMXX.."

#2 Mahligai Syahdu

Location - A place for rich n' famous but completely useless when it comes to Hotwheels
Time - Can't remember

"You know that singer Hattan? (Malay artist, one of Akademi Fantasia critic last time)
"Yah?"
"He also came here that day looking for Hotwheels!"

(what that dude claimed, dun ask me to verify)

#3 Insider's Words of Wisdom

Location - Somewhere far away..
Time - Evil Twin TH round

Yet to capture Super Evil Twin so I gambled to hit somewhere very far from where i am, knowing other outlets of the same store have just received it. Upon reaching there no one was there but 2 cases seen lying on floor already opened but with all the cars inside, seems that they just placed the price tag on it. Grabbed the 2 regs inside but it's my hunting way that unless the store is known to have insider, normally i'll always seek permission to raid / acknowledge them i took the cars so i walked around looking for sumone and finally spotted one. The kakak got pretty pissed seeing i'm holding the hunts so i'm guessing even if she wasn't an insider they're reserved to someone regular there. I voluntarily pass back the 2 regs (already scored those btw) but she refused to take.

"Don't worry kak! It's okay i don't really mind leaving this for others"
"No no.. take it!"
"Urmm..?"
"No point you do good to other people, when you won't know other people will do the same to you.."



More stories to come!

under cover braderrrrr.......nice story there, interesting....!

So far, I encountered honest and good 7-Eleven staff, they don't mention the green card or anything.

Anyway, any of you here encountered another COLLECTOR while you were walking in the same store? do you wrestle for the car? what do you do? just step away or stood your ground?

This one just a few days ago. In 7E. I got 2 Hw 3 packs with a can drink and newspaper. I gave the guy RM50. He give me back RM30.3. I just took the money. But before i could reach the door, he called me back and said he calculated wrongly and gave me too much change.

Dang!!! Nearly hit jackpot! hahaha! Anyway the staff is not local inside that 7E. I think he is newbie there or his mind is somewhere.

#4 My fellow 'overseas' collector

Location - Not relevant to story not worth mentioning
Time - Same as above

*done 'hoarding' the new stuff with aid from Bangla dude there*
"Thanks!"
"You hotwheels like? i this hotwheels collect!"
"Wow really?"
"You wait i come take my hotwheels!"
*went to his secret stash* (wah this bangla must be up to something!)
*returns with completely random cars blimps like that, including loose ones*
"These i like"
"LOL!"

#5 Bulan Ramadhan Bulan Yang Mulia


Location - One of mistakenly known hunting ground black spots?
Time - Some time after buka puasa

A store that disappoints me most of the time (though people been saying that 'wearing cap dude' must have been in control in this territory). So as always, undercover just sit alone there with his 'sad' face for missing the greenies, when the usual not so friendly kakak passes by..


"..."
"Urmm.. Anymore new stock?" (anticipating the same usual answer)
"All display already" (not so good mood face as always)
*Continues sitting there staring at floor, ceiling, random bootlegs..*

*She went away and moments later returns to show me something in her hand*
"Whoaa! SUPER Enzo! Can i take?"
"Nah.."

Returns home with big smile and new super, at no extra charge of course..

#6 INSIDER SPOTTED!!

Location - Somewhere i visited for the first time
Time - 2 years ago

Pegs are full! Ahh.. no greenies. Nvm lemme try ask..

"Bang, any other cars besides this?"
"No more, you looking for treasure hunts one?"
"There is? Can i have a look!"
"Wait.." (let's see how much our friend gonna charge for it)

*returns with reg Brutalistic, few reg Camaro Z28, and SUPER Camaro*
"Woot!"
*Holding it for long time*
*He smiles*
"So i'll take all this?"
"Yeah?"
"I'll go pay at counter now"
"Okay"
"Err.. so you kept this hunts?"
"Yeah?"
"For someone?"
"For any Hotwheels collector looking for this lah"
"Hehe.. you the man!"
