Thanks friends for your patience last week. Due to a hectic travel and meeting schedule last week, we had a rare weekday with no posts. Not that it would cause riots in the street, but we try to keep the content fresh every day. This week is also a hectic travel week, but this time I don’t have to battle the temperamental internet signal of the Denver Sheraton.
So let’s start this week with a treat from Matchbox. After wondering last week if Matchbox was leaving Walmart, we still don’t know for sure what is happening, although we are a little more optimistic. We will wait and see that play out.
And the hope is it stays, obviously. Especially since there will be some product we will want. And that starts with the new MBX Exotics 5-pack. Matchbox Collectors Forum members The General and Matchbox Luke shared the first photo of the pack, which The General found in Australia:
No crazy designs, bright but realistic colors, it looks to be a winner. And while I like the bottom four, I love the top model. It is great to see the Miura in gold, which is one of my favorite colors on the Lambo. I can’t say the other four will join the Lamley collection, but the Miura certainly will.
In the past, when something is found first in Australia, it means we should see it next in Europe, and finally in the US. We will see if that holds true. One way or the other we are happy it is out.
