|2016 Matchbox Batch L at Wheel Collectors|
It is out. 14 months after its buzz-worthy announcement, the Matchbox Nissan Skyline has made its debut, and it is now available at Wheel Collectors, along with the rest of Batch L:
The Skyline is the model to grab in this batch, but with an orange F-Type, a green Ghia, two Cadillacs, and a Raptor with a strange tire inflating business on it, there is a lot to like.
So, as always, the folks at Wheel Collectors grabbed a case and documented its contents, 3-by-3. Here is what to look forward to:
Not bad eh?
The big question was would there be at least two Skylines in the case, and it is a good thing to see that there is. Also, interestingly, this is what we can call the “early run” cardback, where the Skyline on the card looks blue, and erroneously there is a GT-R badge on the grill. That has been corrected for future runs, but some of the early cards clearly made it out. If you like variations, I would snag it now.
And in a case of the outgoing direction of Matchbox crossing paths of the incoming, the other model with a 2-count is the horrific Wheelin’ Wrecker. I doubt we see that eyesore much in the future. Too bad it gets the 2-slot. So yeah, other than that, and maybe it is just me, this is a must-have case. Lots of coverage to come…
