Matchbox variation alert: Jungle Adventure 5-pack Land Rover 90 with small utility rims…

Hooray for our first Matchbox variation alert!  It has been awhile.
I came across the latest batch of 5-packs in the US yesterday, and while I was there, I noticed the Land Rover 90 looked different.  I could not remember if the wheels on it were correct, so I referenced my photobucket on my trusty iphone, and just my luck, the site was down.  So I took a photo of the LR 90 and left it in case I was wrong on my hunch.
I wasn’t wrong.  I looked at the model I have, and sure enough the first issues of the LR 90 have 8-cog wheels.  So it will be back to the store next week to pick it up and give it the proper photo treatment.

  1. Hello,

    I also just bought this 5-pack and chose the one with this wheel variation (out of three sets the store had). Do you think this later variation will be more collectable and valuable with time?

    Thanks very much.
