There is still a lot of Matchbox news to come out of the Gathering. The Toyota Tacoma Dinner Model has been unveiled, Larry Scaduto has been named the new Ambassador (congrats!), the Mattel team has unveiled the 25 new tools for 2015, and we have gotten details on the first Matchbox models with “real riders” in years. We are positive a few of you have gotten the details from friends on the Matchbox presentation, but it will all be laid out here with Nigel Cooper’s final report as Ambassador coming very soon. It will also be accompanied with pics of the upcoming 2014 and 2015 models that we were able to take in the Lamley studio with Mattel’s permission.
In the meantime, here are a few closeups of the other Gathering model, the Dodge Charger Police in Albuquerque Police livery. We will go into more detail on this one later in the week. In the meantime, here is what those who reserved a dealer table for the toy show today are taking home.
