How many times have you walked into a retail store to see the newest premium Hot Wheels, only to see that someone has swapped the wheels — or worse, swapped the whole car? It happened to me this morning with the red mainline BMW (you see in the header pic), resealed on one of the new Replica Entertainment cards.
Well, after thinking long and hard about a way to deter such behavior — knowing full well you will never stop it entirely — I came up with a solution. I made a handy sheet that identifies the latest Hot Wheels premium releases that you can print and give to your local service desk employee the next time you find the ‘ol “diecast switcheroo”. It contains an explanation, so you don’t have to take the time to explain.
Ultimately, its up to the store to do what they want with this handy little tool; but you are now putting the ball in their court, empowering that service desk employee who knows next to nothing about Hot Wheels to at least make an informed decision. Sound good? Below is the link to download the 2-page PDF. Feel free to print and distribute as you see fit. Hopefully this will make the scum bags that do this a little more uneasy the next time they try to pull this off.
