Must be in competition with the Mechanicsburg, PA guy.  But this particular collector is Hot Wheels only while the Mechanicsburg dude collects other makes

And nice 4 year old You Tube video, btw

1960s-70s vintage, boxes unopened?  Sure.

Lates 1950s-era Barbies can bring thousands each, more with the original outfits.  Even an original GI Joe box or foot locker in "Like New" condition can bring hundreds.

Toy collecting is serious, serious business.

I've met this guy. A friend of mine is a serious mini-car collector (his collection is currently insured at $250K) has done quite a bit of business with him. What makes this collection so much more valuable are the prototypes he has, some of which you can't find outside of Macao or the Torrance headquarters. He's real cagey on how he got them because Mattel thought they had been destroyed.

You can say it's "worth" xamount all you want, but is someone actually gonna drop a million bucks for it? Doubtful.

Same could be said about Legos too.  I love Lego but I hate how expensive they are.

I wouldn't be surprised if my wife's cousin's collection is up there in value. His mother saved all his cars and put them on display when he was still a kid. G-d forbid if any child plays with them.

Worst thing that ever happened to my kid as an infant (he's had a charmed life otherwise) is that some asshole in a grocery store found his matchbox car where he left it and farking kept it. I know which guy did it too, because he admitted to seeing it and alluding to thinking it might be "worth something" but then said he didn't pick it up. Asshole. My kid cried for hours, and I was pissed because it was my original 1972 London double decker bus that my deceased dad had bought for me way back when.

At a decent price point of $0.10 per Lego piece, it only takes an average of 10 million Lego pieces to be a millionaire, and fewer if there are any rare pieces or figures from the 90's, or if any of the sets are unopened.

I had that one.  One of the few Matchbox cars I had.  I think I'd rather have my latest 70's/earliest 80's Hot Wheels cars back more than my Star Wars toys.
