PostSubject: HOT WHEELS at RM7.50 per card, logic?   Tue Jul 05, 2011 11:55 pm

First topic message reminder :


Please bear with me, and I know it's long... But I really had say this...

The inevitable has happened. In some places in Malaysia, the price of a Hot Wheels card
is being priced at RM7.50 per card. That is an incredible hike of 60 cent from RM6.90.
Where in the USA, the rise from 99cent to usd$1 was such a huge fuss from USA Hot Wheels collectors,
imagine how would they feel if the hike is over 60 cents.

EDITED

I know for fact that Mattel Worldwide is not doing good in financially.
Mattel is in trouble. The giant toy company Mattel is going through one of its worst crises.
Year after year the company has been having poor numbers performance. Reasons for poor performance are not lacking: the high price of metal and oil (raw material of plastic), high freight and a great pressure for better working conditions of employees in Asia (and consequent increase in labor costs).
But the most painful blow on American consumers was no doubt the price increase across the board. Since its inception in 1968, Hot Wheels is proud to keep the price below the baseline of $ 1, prem this year that barrier was broken, and now the models are found in stores for $ 1.09 to $ 1.11. You may find that the increase was just and that there was not much commercial impact, but this increase of 10% had an immediate effect in the stores, and now the rapidly emptying shelves that are always crowded with products, with tenants taking more and more to put new models on sale. Who first bought 10 cars, nine now purchase the same price, and we're talking about a public living one of the worst recessions the U.S. has ever passed.

Perhaps because of the big huge fuss created in US is even greater, it's lesser painful for Mattel to increased the international market.
It's easier. Hence, here we are going at RM7.50.

Have your say. Say what you feel.
To think of it, I save more money on not buying toys. The obvious right?
I don't have to go crazy spending silly money on petrol and toll for chasing new cases at 7E?
With RM7.50 saved everyday I can cut my car petrol usage by half.
Now why didn't Mattel think of that?

aisey... when the price hiked to RM6.90, so many complains but still some collectors buying like nobody businesses..

Some places increase till RM7.99 like in Giant and Cold Storage, you can still see the playas buying like there is no tomorrow..

Complain as you want, you see the things you like and you will still buy..
and then complain again, but still buying..

Try to be firm with what you want, be a man..
Stop complaining..

As HW basic now at RM 7.50 we should agree upon now no matter what you basic HW car are your basic HW collections should been valued at RM 8.00 per card with no price haggling should take place and that is a win-win situations.
Less power to buy but more money can be cashing in for our collections.

Fuel prices went up over the years - yet it didn't STOP you from driving and make use of public transport? scratch how'd you manage?

If you wanna compare which more important - then stop buying toys. Period.

So cost of toilet paper one day goes up - watcha gonna do?

NO.
It stopped me from driving for two years. I used public transport which was cheaper.
I swear to you I did.
Come on man, have you even been in a LRT lately?
There's SO many people taking public transport BECAUSE of fuel hike.

And I had already stopped collecting Hot Toys, McFarlane...etc because it is too expensive.
Hot Wheels is the last toy collection for me. And even then I stopped collecting from 2006 - 2008.
You, Ibrahim & sinclair should know because I stopped coming to McD remember?

I've done all this before and surely can do it again.
If toilet paper goes up, then don't shiet lor.

Stamps relaxing???? No serious? hahahah! I collected stamps before. Still have a them. I think its an even worse hobby than HW cars. Many many more variations, imitations, first day covers blah blah. I find it no different than collecting money. At least with money there is a limit on how much it can be minted. But stamps are too many. Waaayyyy too many. I quit stamps just after 2 years. It accumulates too fast!

Atomkinder and 'snr member', as well as whoever was offended by fellow members before.. being in this position i have to be very careful in giving my opinions regarding this, plus as with my many past experiences commenting on members issues openly could potentially make things worse. All i can say is no matter who you guys are we really appreciate you a true collectors who did so much to this club especially Atom, and i really don't want things like this deters you from further contributing more stuff to this forum.

Let's put it this way, since you guys are seeing each other every week anyway, do take best opportunity to sort things and compromise. So everything's cool as usual.
