Hot Wheels Virtual Vending Machine 3/16 will open their "Virtual Vending Machine" on Tuesday, March 16 at 9:00 a.m. PST. HWC members can purchase vending machine "pulls" as often as they want at a cost of $9.99 each until they sell out. A "pull" is like a grab bag: each is made up of letover inventory, returns, and exchanges, and while condition isn't guaranteed, collectors who participated in past sales ending up getting merchandise worth a lot more than what they paid.
