For our readers in Australia and Europe, I realize this is VERY old news in your area. The US has been several months behind on Matchbox 5-packs for two years now, and there does not seem to be any change in sight.
So, for our US followers, here are DLM photos of the two latest 5-packs in the US, both found at Walmart Friday.
Pack #4 – Desert Adventure
1. MB767 Quick Sander
2. MB819 Coyote 500
3. MB781 Rock Shocker
4. MB716 Ridge Raider
5. MB723 VW Beetle 4×4
Pack #5 – Beach Rescue
1. MB519 Hovercraft
2. MB605 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
3. MB422 White Water Raft & Trailer
4. MB429 Dune Buggy
5. MB486 Jeep Wrangler w/luggage
From a collector point of view, not the most exciting set of packs. There is not a single model I will add to the collection. I think the upcoming Police pack will be far more popular with collectors (and the general public alike).
So it may be a couple of months before we see the latest packs, which we reported a couple of weeks ago found in Australia. When they do appear here, you can bet we will give them the Lamley photo treatment.
You can always see the listing of 5-packs and all other 2012 Matchbox vehicles on the MCCH Catalog. I will have all the updates up there shortly…
