Hello Matchbox friends,As said I will send you updates rather than waiting with the information until a next report would be due to be issued. With the new team in charge we do get pics and info at a stage that is way before we used to get them in the last years. Some info is spread direct thru Instagram “@matchboxworld” and some is coming thru our channels like my reports or the blogs like Johns and Davids lamely group (http://lamleydlm.blogspot.de/). To cover you with the information in time as well I will use these updates.
You might have seen this pic from the new licensed GHE-O Toy Fair model already:
Surely a beauty and a must have for me!
We are proud that we can also show you the backside of the model:
Always nice to see what the boys can do to the design and details when they aren’t limited to create a $1 toy!!!
That brings us to the “next step up” models – the best of world series is surely being a home run. Also not tied up in the $1 problem the range shows 12 super models to collect. My favorite so far is surely this Lambo LM002 with these perfect fitting tires and a nice deco:
But also the design for the standard model corvette to come is worth having a look at. Esp. if you check it against some weird decos from the last years:
Ok – I start:
Being german and liking sport cars Im really a fan for this unique sports car: Wiesmann (www.wiesmann.com) – you rarely see them on the street, but if you see one you take a second to enjoy it !
Ok – I make a wish now I keep my promise giving an idea of a Matchbox original model. Just passed one of these today – we see them in different versions around and we all need them to get the road we want to drive on – a street building machine – picture is one version, but I guess we can all live with this being a nice addition to our “INC” company vehicles:
The other idea is a design for an existing casting. You all know we do get the BMW M1 (1M) last years in a very special livery for the Leipzig show. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Matchbox-2014-Leipzig-BMW-1M-Coupe-weis-BMW-Rennlook-1-von-500-im-Crystal-Case-/271926013851?)
But the car was also used as a safety car – check this:
So far so good … Have fun
