Great news Matchbox collectors. The premiere Matchbox collector event, the MC Gathering of Friends has been announced for 2013. I know many Lamley followers are not aware of the Gathering, but for 10 years now this has been the Matchbox event to attend.
Many come for the amazing Mattel-produced exclusives (like the Firebird pictured above), and then they return for the experience. It is the only event attended by the Matchbox team, and they are always willing to sit down and have a chat. Plus they unveil the next year’s new models and give a State of the Brand presentation.
There are a million reasons to head to New Mexico in July and attend, so if you are able, I hope you consider. The Lamley Group will be there, if that means anything. (It probably doesn’t.)
But make your decision quickly. Registration begins Jan 1, and the first 75 paid registrants get the uber-exclusive 1-of-75 Code 1 produced solely for them.
Anyway, this announcement from event coordinator Jim Gallegos just came over the wire:
