wademh: But they're not Hot Wheels.

They are now.

Stolen sometime in 2021???  They're 'cold' wheels now. Maybe the next big Netflix doc.

Yeah, that's insurance fraud.

That's someone's labor of love, probably took years to amass that collection.  Total dick move.  $35,000 at $7 a pop.

That said, I'd like to hear the wife's alibi and see if she already redecorated that room.

Maybe not a labor of love. Maybe just someone buying cases and stacking the boxes in the basement. If the cars really were on display only a real Hot Wheels fan wouldn't go mad or die from boredom trying to pack up 5000 of the things.

I had a friend who was having  a kid. I suggested I could pick up a huge amount of hot wheels and track in free piles at yard sales because I always see them antiquing. I said that by the time he was old enough to play with them, he could have a big box full. Just wash them and out them in storage until he grows a bit.

No way, he said.
The orange hot wheels tracks only got used for one thing in our house growing up. And that was for beating kid's asses.
Not in my house.

I eventually got the kid an old school game boy with a ton of cartridges for 59 cents. Told him to hide it I, his room for when he got punished and sent there.

Punishment was no Wi-Fi.
At 5.

How cruel

5000 matchbox cards and stolen in 2021?  Given how lack the article is in relevant data my best guess is looted from a storage unit.   The value could be much higher than $35k though depending if any are especially rare and or sought after.
