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?

Giant at RM7.99 since few months ago.
RM7.50 for TRU is recent, as per KLCC-TRU.
For C4 at RM7.50, will be after RM5 promo, I believe.
As for Bkt Tinggi-JJ, it was still RM6.90 yesterday.

For my opinion i decide to reduce quantity of Hw per month and just buy only what i want rather than before and manage to get other alternative such as buy from friends,flea market or Roak.. We can't stop any item from price hike but we can stop from over spending our money with only use the simple method and last but not least, only buy 1pcs carded for each model..kasik la kawan2 lain nak merasa beli model2 yg mantop tu..hehe..what i can say,i love hotwheels and still collect and collect HW even price will hike and hike Smile
