That's a great story and a great find, FirstOne!
There's a dude where I live (Arden, NC) that is always at Target at 08:00 A.M. every morning for Hot Wheels, too! I know this becuase I'm always there for Joes! I don't feel too nerdy about me being there 'cause my office is, like ,200 yards from the Target.

I would like to grab a shopping cart and surf it full speed to the Hot wheels isle, and just start arm loading everything off the pegs into the cart as fast as I could then go hide the cart in the feminin hygeine isle! It might piss off a store stocker but whats a little collateral damage for the sake of freaking out the Hot Wheels weirdos. They would get the blame anyway!
No offence to store stockers or any civil Hot Wheels collectors!

Hot Wheels Guys are funny. When I worked retail from 1990 to 1996, we had Hot Wheels Guys often. They would do stuff like offer to stock the pegs for us, and what not. All so they could search the "factory-sealed box" and pull out the rare "chase cars".
It got testy around 1994, when we got a new manager...one who was also a Hot Wheels Guy! He fought tooth and nail with the peons who came into the store. He even began posting signs on the warehouse door saying: "We can NOT bring out Hot Wheels in boxes from the back". At the same time, he posted a bulletin in the cashiers and receiving areas, saying to bring all new, sealed, Hot Wheels Box to his desk before they hit the floor.
So everytime I feel somewhat goofy while walking into a store to buy GI Joe junk, I get some solace by thinking: "well, at least I'm not a Hot Wheels Guy".

I ended up running into these 2 older dudes (late 50s) scrounging the palets for hot wheels LOL. We ended up going to the same walmarts in a row being a few minutes off from each other. One used a walkie talkie to talk to his freind to warn him if store stockers were near the palets. And at one point i heard him say "hey here comes that other guy from the last store! did you get the rare ones?" And I would stop buy to see what the other was doing and he started grabbing for all the cars LOL was fun...they found what they were looking for but I came up empty handed with joes so I am sure they said "PWNED JOE COLLECTOR LEWZOR!" :(
