Will 2016 be the Year of Matchbox?
Hard to say, but the brand will definitely put its best foot forward. We have already seen the 2016 A Case, and there is a lot to like, so that is a good start. We also know 2016 will see the debut of the Mazda Miata, VW Transporter Pickup, and maybe the most anticipated Matchbox in awhile, the ’71 Skyline. Not to mention the 2016 Gathering in July, where 2017 will be previewed. Yummy.
Further evidence is in the Best of the World premium line, which makes its debut on the Lamley Youtube Channel today. 10 models, enhanced deco, and two-piece wheels a la Read Riders. You can see all the models with packaging in the video below, and photos are coming soon here to the blog. Some have already been showcased loose, but here is the set in its entirely, including the never-before-seen ’93 Mustang LX SSP.
This is only the beginning. Let’s hope this line leads to even bigger and better things from Matchbox.
Many thanks to Matchbox for letting me share these. Enjoy the video and check back for a full photo post soon:
