As a recent convert to collecting Johnny Lightning I constantly hear people complaining about the recent price increase. Some have actually threatened to start collecting Hotwheels again because they sell for $1.00. The sad thing is these people will still spend the same amount, instead of one nice casting they will now own 5 mediocre ones. Collecting has gone from quality to quantity. It's better to have thousands of cars packed away than a few really nice ones that you can display. Oh well to each his own. Me, I am hear to stay. I will glady pay the price. I've been to the other side and I'm not going back again.
