Alright, let’s go orange.
Hopefully you agree with me that Matchbox continues a most welcome return to form. You might have some likes and dislikes among the new models shown here, but there is a nice variety of vehicles from all kinds of angles, and that diversity is what many of us longtime Matchbox fans have come to love. Sure, more would be better, but this is a nice, realistic, mix.
Add to that the fact that Matchbox Team has proven to be well engaged with the community, much more than it used to be. They set the stage with their @matchboxworld IG feed, and we have seen Abe in Albuquerque, Germany, and at JCCS previewing all kinds of goodies. And as many of you have found when meeting him, he listens, and he definitely brings you into the process, good and bad.
So let’s have a gander back at 2017, before we jump into 2018. Here are all the 2018 LICENSED New Models. I debated including the non-licensed, considering Matchbox is doing a lot more realistic generic vehicles, but I decided to stick with licensed. Please note I did not include a photo of the GHE-O Predator. I could not find one to photograph. But it is included in the poll.
You will find photos of all below.
