The Matchbox J 24-count Case has arrived, with a bit of a surprise.
Wheel Collectors just got a pallet of J Cases, and as always they opened one at random for a Photo Case Report. All the models are now listed at the Wheel Collectors Store:
There are a few new models in here, and some nice repeats. Let’s get to the case, and then the surprise:
A nice case indeed. The new BMW i3 and Jeep Gladiator are very nice new models.
The talk of this case, however, will undoubtedly be the VW Golf Country. Not only is it a highly anticipate model, and a VW (which always excited collectors), but it is not the VW Golf Country we expected.
If you remember, the new VW Golf Country was previewed here a couple of months ago. After first previewing the green model with 10-spokes, Matchbox sent a later sample of the model in a more appropriate Montana Green with chrome-lipped 5-spokes.
I was told the Montana Green model would be the official release, after Matchbox decided to go with what they thought was a more appropriate color and wheels. So I did a new post with the new model.
I didn’t think the green would be released, but it was, and now we wait and see if the Montana Green arrives later. Time will tell.
